That error code has something to do with your rollers being obstructed. I was able to find this solution...
"it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)"

SOURCE: error message 5100

In this particular printer, this Error is described as Cartridge Home Position error. Try the steps that I am giving you:---- 1.Turn off and unplug the printer from the power supply.
2.Remove any paper.Buy a can of compressed air from an electronics shop or computer store. Use the compressed air (Not a vacuum!!!) to blast out any dust bunnies, paper particles and debris. (Don't do this with the cartridges removed as you're likely to fill the printhead with air!!)Use isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab (Qtip) to clean the plastic strip that runs the length of the guide rail (the metal rail that the cartridge carriage moves along), it may be contaminated with ink and debris.Remove and reinsert the ink cartridges inside the cartridge carriage to ensure that they're connecting properly.
3.With the power off, carefully slide the print head (carriage) to the center of the guide rail. You should not have to force it! (There will be some light resistance but it should move quite easily by gently pushing on it with your finger.)
4.Close all the access doors, plug it back in, connect your USB cable and turn on the power.As it runs through the initialization, the printer should sense that the carriage is out of position and automatically move it back to where it should be.

Thank you, Have a nice day.

I am getting an error 5100 message. On the printer it says cartridge jammed thanks


Hello and WelcomeError 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.
Actually the printer is not actually loading the cartridge and showing you the error 5100.

To solve these follow the following steps
  1. Turn off printer
  2. Remove both the cartridges from the printer
  3. Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches
  4. Return the cartridges
  5. Turn on the printer.
Error will be removed

Canon PIXMA iP1000 - Service Error 5100


It means that the waste ink absorbers are filled and you will need to replace them and take the machine to a service center.. Well thats what Canon says,, then when you get there they say buy a new one..

Any way forget them try this..
1.) unplug machine (power cable from back of printer.
2.) hold the power button down and plug cable back in.the printer light will stay on ,,
3.) still holding power,, press the paper feed button.. light will change to orange
4.) press paper feed button again.. It will turn to green
5.) release power button and enjoy..

Depend on the the firmware skip step 4...

That will bypass canons firmware and reset the counters.. Print as you will now..

I get an error message 5100. What do I do to fix


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The error 5100 means it is a Carriage Position Error. The plastic strip that runs the carriage might get some particles of paper or rust and required to be cleaned with some alcohol and swab. If still the problem persists, then it may be due to some obstruction in the print path or gears or some ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. Lubricate the sliders with some white grease, including the purge cap, which is the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks on when it's not in use. Please make sure that it is not split on the small wipers or the black caps. The mechanism can now slide more freely. To access the purge mechanism you need to remove the right panel off of the printer. There are two screws on the behind of the printer and two in front for each side panel. You can locate the front screws behind the grey front panel of the printer. Now open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Hi, This error indicates a carriage error
Check that the encoder strip ( the plastic strip that rungs behind the carriage ) is securely attached at both ends.If not, see if it has been broken, or if not just re-attach ih it onto the fixing lug
