If you move the head to the right side and look into the machine. You will see on the left a circular clear plastic disc. Its not perfectly clear but it will have either come away from its fixing or it may have some grease on it. Clean it as best as you can. Also behind the print head there is another clear plastic strip (not disc) which runs the full width of the machine. Also clean this.
Hopefully that should do the job.

What does 5100 mean in canon mx310 series printer


There are several possibilities.

Have you changed out a ink cartridge lately? You can try and do a power reset by holding the power button for about 1 second until the machine powers down. You can also remove the power plug. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the printer back on. Then wait for the printer to fully cycle before trying to print.

There are other possibilities. Let me know what has happened just before you saw this error code and I can give you more information.

Check printer 5100 whaat is this problem and how do i fix it


Ink buildup. The B&W and color cartridges abut and shoot ink through a thin metal strip with a tiny ****, visible when opening the unit. The strip rests right up against the cartridges. A grayish strip where you'll see a dark line running across. That's ink. Carefully remove this ink with Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Additionally, the printer head cleaning pads on farthest right side are caked with ink. Manual advises to replace these parts. They can be cleaned with Q-tip and Rubbing alcohol also.

Error 5100 on my canon mx 310.


the 5100 is the carriage error and can be caused by 4 different sensors. First off the "Timing Strip" that passes through the back of the Carriage Assembly can be contaminated with ink spots and this needs to be cleaned. Open the cover and use your flashlight to examine the timing strip as much as you can see. You really don't have much access to this strip unless you remove the covers,..and doing that is considerable work. The other items that can cause this error are the sensor inside the carriage unit, the drive motor for the carriage asm, and of course the main logic card. However, 99.6% of the time it is the Timing strip which is easitly contaminated with splattered ink.

My cannon mx300 is giving me an alarm code 5100


5100 means either the carriage is not moving freely back and forth or there is grease or ink on the encoder strip. You can clean that clear plastic strip behind the carriage with a Q-tip, but also check on the right and left side for paper scraps stopping the carriage.

Alram light


Did you replace the Black ink cartridge or the Color cartridge, or did you replace both?

Facing the front of the Canon Pixma MX310, did you install the Black ink cartridge to the left side, and the Color cartridge to the right side?

Do Not reverse how the ink cartridges go. Do Not install a Black ink cartridge, in the Color cartridge holder.

If the Alarm light came on, check to see if you have an error message in the LCD. (Not trying to insult your intelligence. The LCD is the little rectangular Liquid Crystal Display on your Pixma MX310 Operation Panel, to the left of the numeric buttons)

Do you have the Pixma MX310 On-screen manual?
Start>Hover on All Programs>Canon>Pixma MX310>On-screen manual

Click on the Troubleshooting heading.
If you have an error message code, click on the heading ->
An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD.

Also suggest you click on the heading -> Problems Sending Faxes.

See if the information provided has a solution to your problem.

Unable to reset printer after installing new ink cartridges


unplug the printer from the wall, then plug it back in, leave in connected to the computer though.
this may help. If not, cycle the power off then on, ....wait. if nothing happens, click on the printer settings and ensure that they are correct.

Canon mx310 printer


Open up the hood, slide the ink cartridges to the far left, and check for a small silver piece that has dislodged from the far right side of the interior. You will probably need a flashlight to see. It is about the size of a folded paperclip. Even if it is still in place, remove it anyways because the printer identifies it as an obstruction. It serves no purpose so do not feel apprehensive about doing this, it will fix this problem.
