SOURCE: Canon mx700 error code 5100 - printhead seems to

Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

My printer canon mx700 has error 5200, what I have to do to fix it. Thanks.


This is a printhead overheat error but both the printhead and main logic board should be changed together and it would cost over 3/4 of the price of a new machine. So i would buy another machine rather than go for a repair.

What does an error 5200 mean?


(1) With the printer turned on, unplug it
(2)Open the top and bring the ink cartridge holder to the middle
(3)Raise the gray bar and remove the print head assembly with the cartridges in it
(4) Lower the gray bar with the head missing and close the top with the head out
(5) Restore the power,wait til the printer wakes up
(6) It will tell you to put in the cartridges
(7) Restore the print head, close the top and the printer should resume working.....
it is a printer head error and some solved it that way ..after you do that it will resume the function and work ..

Can I use only black ink cartridge with the MX700? All other colors removed?


Canon printers won't let you do that, all colors have to be installed and not empty, for it to do anything. If you ran with colors removed the printhead would dry and plug and require replacement.

I have a Canon MX700. I tried to send a fax then


Try removing the ink and printhead, turn printer off and then on. If printer asks you for the printhead, then ink, then you may have just gotten a working printer again. I hope this works.

Canon PIXMA MX700 printhead immediately coated with ink, smudges


It's likely that the foam pads that the print head rests on when the printer is not in use are saturated with ink. They're to the right as you look into the printer: a rectangular one for black ink and a square one for the colored ink. If you power the printer off and back on, with the cover open, you'll see where the printhead goes to rest.

The pads aren't easy to get at, but you can blot them with a paper towel. Gummy, half-dried ink dissolves in rubbing alcohol, and you can soak a paper towel or a cotton ball with alcohol and wipe down the area. I've had good luck soaking the pads with alcohol, then blotting them dry with a rag.

White lines across text on Canon MX700


It sounds very much like a failed printhead or printhead driver; the circuit that controls which jet is addressed or left blank.
