Alarm is flashing error code 5100 and won't let me print anything


Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in:
- Carriage unit
- Timing **** strip film
- Logic board assembly
- Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Cannon mx 310 error 5100 Says chck printr with alarm light flashi


heres the problem from service manual: error 5100, a error occured in your encoder signal, it list 4 things in the serice manual.
carriage unit. carriage motor, logic board, timing **** film.
ok my first thing i would look at is the film that runs directly behind the print head i would think it is dirty. just turn on printer and get print head to the middle and turn off machine, gentle move print head to one side and gentle clean the film strip with a cloth with a little metho on it, move print head to other side and clean other part of ****.
i reckon that will fix your problem its a common problem they tend to get a bit of grease on the timming ****.

Paper not loading, sericr eror message 5100


Dear kamal,

Error code 5100 also come with LED alarm flashes in Orange/Green 2 times. This error happens when carriage part (carriage unit) is faulty so that carriage part cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriage part move on uncontrolled. But,in some cases, dirty film timing **** strip (Horizontal film encoder;available only in i series and above) may cause the same symptom. Try to clean film encoder by wiping it with moistened clothe first.

Remedial action:
  • Replace carriage part
  • Clean/replace film timing **** strip
