Hi

Error 5100 on canon is a Carriage Home Position Error. Try reseating the printer cartridges. If that doesn't help make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left. Try cleaning the plastic strip (encoder strip, behind the carriage) that runs the length of the carriage, it may be contaminated. Use alcohol and a swab (Q-tip) to clean. Before cleaning unplug it from the power supply. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    Yeah....if you have already tried cleaning it then the carriage should be replaced

    Getting this part replaced will cost you more then a new one....I mean new ones are available for as low as $30 moreover the parts are not easily available

My Canon pixma Mp 450 printer is showing error code 5100 what is wrong with it?


it is service error you can fix this by doing this steps
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)

I think waste tank reset is 4 presses of the RESUME button. To confirm, press POWER once.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Canon printer mp 510 error 5010


That is a purge system error, either you need a new purge assembly or there is a paper scrap caught in there stopping it. The purge unit is on the right where the printhead parks at shutdown and where the printhead is cleaned.

5100 canon mp 180


5100 is a carriage travel error. Make sure there is nothing stopping the carriage from moving all the way from right to left, and then clean the encoder, the plastic strip behind the carriage with a Q-tip damp with water, grease on that strip can give you that error...

My canon pixma mp530 makes a loud noise most times when it powers up and when i print a document. It works OK otherwise.


My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

Canon PIXMA MP450 "Servic Error 5100"


Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work
