  • kinde Aug 04, 2008

    In setting up my PIXMA MX310 printer for the first time, when I plug it in and turn it on, it gives me a 5100 error. There seems to be nothing in the manual about this, except to contact a service rep. Any help?

    I have the same 5100 error message problem on my Canon PIXMA ip2000. In addition:

    1) my printer seems to take the paper in at an angle and print fuzzy text where the ending on the right seems to stop shorter on each line, therefore producing the effect of diagonal printing down the paper.

    2) I cannot print images. The printer stops half way and pops open the 5100 message. Also the printing diagonal problem as described above

    I tried waiting for a while, and it was fixed.
