Ha! Ha! I think we have all felt like that at times - ready to throw an electronics item out the window. The canon site is not working properly right now, so have searched otherwise. Take a look at this same issue here.

If this doesn't help, don't throw it out! Post back and let me know a little more - what exactly happens when you get this error? Also, if you could provide your location, it would be helpful, and we need to make sure your driver is appropriate. Please post back if you still need help, otherwise thank you for using and rating FixYa!

I am using CANON MP160 Printer. It had been working properly for the last 4 months. But since last few 10 days, I am not able to print as always error 5100 pops up. Kindly suggest.


Issue: ERROR: Service error 5100 appears while printing from the computer

1. Allow print head to cool down
2. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to ensure a secure connection
3. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
4. Reseat ink cartridge (MP160 / MP180 / MP460)
5. The MP160 may require repair

Try the above... and you also can see this on the canonusa web site....

Hi there,
Service Error 5100
Cause : Movement of the Print Head Holder is blocked.
Action "Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Print Hed Holder from moving, cancel printing from your computer, then turn off the machine and turn it back on again.

Hope this helps.

Service error 5100. Cancel printing and Press OK button. If this doesn't clear the error, see the printer manual for more detail.


Had a same problem, here is what i ve received from canon support:
"Dear Customer,
Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
Please be advised that error 5100 indicates a carriage error and the machine will require service."

However I managed to solve it by myself by perform few paper path tests as there was a paper jam inside.
