SOURCE: CANON IP 1300 SERVICE ERROR 5100

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your ink cartridge carriage that disables it from moving. It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire. You may try cleaning also the encoder strip with a moist tissue paper. Furthermore, you may also try cleaning CAREFULLY the contact points of the cartridge holder and the cartridge itself (those shiny bronze pins) with a moist lint-free cloth.

Had the same problem, i just replaced the black ink cartridge which was finishing at that time and resetted the counters. No problems after that. Not sure whether this will help though.

Open up the hood, slide the ink cartridges to the far left, and check for a small silver piece that has dislodged from the far right side of the interior. You will probably need a flashlight to see. It is about the size of a folded paperclip. Even if it is still in place, remove it anyways because the printer identifies it as an obstruction. It serves no purpose so do not feel apprehensive about doing this, it will fix this problem.

SOURCE: Canon PIXMA iP1000 - Service Error 5100

It means that the waste ink absorbers are filled and you will need to replace them and take the machine to a service center.. Well thats what Canon says,, then when you get there they say buy a new one..

Any way forget them try this..
1.) unplug machine (power cable from back of printer.
2.) hold the power button down and plug cable back in.the printer light will stay on ,,
3.) still holding power,, press the paper feed button.. light will change to orange
4.) press paper feed button again.. It will turn to green
5.) release power button and enjoy..

Depend on the the firmware skip step 4...

That will bypass canons firmware and reset the counters.. Print as you will now..

My canon mp270 has an error code 5100 by any chance would you be able to help thanks.


Error 5100 refers to the carriage not moving correctly. Its possible you had a paper jam and removed the paper and caught the encoder strip (the long black plastic strip thats the full width of the machine) it passes through the carriage so it knows where it is. Some grease or matter may be stuck to it. kill the power and clean the strip with a damp cotton bud. thats usually the problem. Its also possible that the strip has come out of the carriage and is twisted. if thats the case then the machines covers need to be removed to gain acess to the encoder.
Good luck

The error number is P8. The printer is not working at all.


Hello,

The 8 error code just means that the ink absorber is full and needs to be replaced. Power cycling will not help this problem. A shop needs to replace the absorber and reset the counter.

Thanks,
Bhautesh.
