When I try to print on my Canon PIXMA ip8500 inkjet, I get a service error 5100. What does this mean?


1. hold RESUME then press & hold POWER
2. release RESUME, then press it twice, the light should go amber then green again.
3. you're now in service mode (you can release POWER now)

for waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Waste ink absorber full and wontprint at all orange top light continually flashing was doing this weeks ago to but ijust overrided it pressed button and would print but it has a warning box saying waste...


For that error, the printer has to be opened up, the print engine removed and the pads underneath replaced. About $10.00 for the pads. After that you need to get the service mode and reset the counter to clear the error. Not a good job to do at home...
