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.

Printer problem 5100


This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see.

What does 5100 mean in canon mx310 series printer


There are several possibilities.

Have you changed out a ink cartridge lately? You can try and do a power reset by holding the power button for about 1 second until the machine powers down. You can also remove the power plug. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the printer back on. Then wait for the printer to fully cycle before trying to print.

There are other possibilities. Let me know what has happened just before you saw this error code and I can give you more information.

There are a error massage check printers 5100


Error 5100 on Canon's usually means there is an obstruction in the printing path stopping the paper feeding properly, or the clear film sensor the cartridges use may be dirty.

Check inside your printer for any foreign objects and also see if the clear film sensor is dirty. Clean with methylated spirits very gently if you have to.

Hope this helps.
