Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
If you are using a Cannon i550, code 5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination (plastic strip about 1/4" in width) If the unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
If you need to put the printer in service mode, you can do the following:
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)
If you need to empty the waste tank:
I think waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.
Hope this was helpful, didn't see the printer type posted which made it harder.

When an error occurs the camera will display an error code like "Exx", where "x" represent numbers.
See the list items at the bottom of this page when it shows following error codes.
"E18" error of the target unit / lens barrel
"E30" and "E50" error of the CF or SD card
When an error code "Exx" different from those already mentioned, the camera off and then turn to try to capture or play back images.
If this error persists or an error code appears often, there was a malfunction of the camera.
Note the error code and contact the retailer where you purchased the camera or the nearest service center for Canon.
I hope this helps
