Hi,

Error code 5100 refers to blockage along the print path. While this could be a number of things, simple remedies may include lubricating the slider rod where the print head moves along. This could be as simple as a drop of oil, cleaning and checking no paper bits or accumulated dust/ dirt or grime. Another area to check is the waste in pad. This would be the white receptacle below the print heads when in park position. On certain instances, the sponge may be dislocated and would simply require moving back in place. At other times, there could be obstruction blocking the print heads resting in the correct park position. This again could be dirt,grime, bits of paper, paperclips, staplers, or even gummed up or dried ink.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I can't print my documents. My Printers model is Canon IP2700 and it says there that the error code is 5100. How can I fix the problem? we need the print immediately. Is there any solution we can fix it?


Usually, error code 5100 means some kind of obstruction in the print path, maybe something that had fallen inside the printer, the gears being jammed by something that got loose inside the printer, or ink on the clear plastic encoder/timing strip (a plastic strip about 1/4" in width that you can see running from side to side and connects to the print head).

Clean the plastic strip with alcohol , check if there is nothing blocking the head carriage set (sometimes kids play and hide toys, pens, coins, inside printers, VCRs or any other devices that have "doors"...).

Hope this info may help you!

Check printer 5100 error message.


error code 5100 means print head temperature rise error. In other word the print head is overheated. First,turn off your printer for some minutes (it recommended to take about 30 secs or more) and let it's cooled down. Turn on again. If the problem still persist,try to check whether the print head is good or not by comparing with another print head. Be carefully,sometimes this problem is caused by short circuitry inside the print head.

Error 5100 canon mp470 my screen is showing error code 5100. i cant find the manual to my machine can you help? what exactly does the error mean?


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 Seen this many times
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.

I had the error code 5100 for my canon pixma ip6220d printer and all it was a pen in the track of the cartridges. I've been looking for that pen for awhile too. So I would say look for something in the way of the cartridges. Hope this helps everyone.

Error code 5100


Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. 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. Check VERY thoroughly.
