CANON ip 4300 - 5100 error & prints skew onto DVD

Hi there I have been using ip3000, then the ip5200 and recently I bought iP4300 a while ago, but now have 2 problems with it: 1. Service error 5100 Did run regcure (registered version) as instructed on the net, but it didn't solve the problem.
Also had a look at your solution in the User manuel - says must do steps 7 b & c on page 10 properly (by the way, it shows on page 13 on my PC), but I havent installed any tubing as shown on the pictures. My printer is still the way i bought it.

2. Printer makes LOUD 'clicking' noise when prints onto dvd/cd. When finished with printing, the image is skew ("leans to the right")! Can you PLEASE assist?
Thanking you Johan Bekker

    After struggling for about 1 and a half day to sort printer out (error
    5100), the "time is money" idea kicked in, so I went to go buy a
    new printer (iP4500 this time!!!).



    Is the iP4300 just problematic? I know of another company that uses the
    same printer (3 x iP4500) and they seem to be very happy with it.



    Must say, my first one (iP3000) lasted VERY long...even while using generic ink.



    Happy printer-hunting!

    I have the same problem with error 5100 and cd's/dvd's printing skewed, though I have a Canon Pixma MP500 which has been working fine since I bought it a couple of years ago. The CD printing was working fine last week - but just stopped today when I tried to print.

I had this eror. It was caused by indexing error left to right.Would print some then cancel after starting to make clunking and left to right error gets to large.(white edge up the side of full page print).
There is a toothed print head carriage drive belt and a clear indexing strip above the heavily white greased bar behind print head carriage.
If this clear indexing strip gets grease or anything else on it the print head cannot index.
With print head at full right position,power off, I carefully wiped the clear strip by pinching between clean dry fingers and wiping up and down the strip a few times,maybe use cotton wool buds and IPA or methalated spirit if you can't get your fingers in there without breaking the strip. then with power on print head in change cartridge position,push carriage to far left and wipe right side of clear strip.I pushed carriage full left to right a few times,Then ran print head alignment.Fixed without taking apart.

I bought my printer 2 years ago. If I turn on my Canon ip4300 printer the lights will flash and the printer freezes. Whenever I try to print anything the message 'error 5100' appears. I have refilled my black cartridges for maybe the second time or so. But even without cartridges installed, I get no other reaction then a freezing printer.The light starts blinking green/orange and then that's all the printer does.
I've tried using the cartridge flush but there doesn't seem to be a change in the situation.
Is there anyone that can help?

    error 5100



    Somehow my printer had black ink allover (the inside right corner)

    I couldnt't really open the printer, but I've managed to clean it with papertissues and cartridge flush and now it works again! ! !

    I hope this'll work for your printer as well..

Canon ip 4300


Google "canon ip4300". The canon.com entry near the top has a support tab. and enter "paper skew", you'll get a roller cleaning procedure.
As a matter of fact, it didn't solve my problem. The alternative, of having the machine repaired, is, of course, silly vs. buying a new machine. But in the meantime, the lower paper feed still works, albeit slightly less convenient.

IP 4300 Canon Printer printing horisontal gray lines


To solve this problema, proceed with LF correction procedure, which is well documented on Canon IP4300 simplified service manual (it can be found at Emule network). This procedure prints some patterns and the user has to choose the best among them. One of them will probably enough to compensate (or, at least, to minimize the problem to the point that naked eyes can't observe it) the line feeding error which causes dark horizontal lines along the printer lifetime (probably because of feed roller wearing).
