Turn off printer.
Remove both the cartridges from the printer. Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches.
Return the cartridges and turn on the printer.

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.

Hope it helps!

The printer keeps flashing e then 2 and when i try to print it says it is error 5100


I have an MP130. I find that when I have a 5100 error you just need to change the cartridges even though the software may say there is ink left in the cartridge. I think there is a chip on the cartridge itself when sends a message that the printer doesn't understand.

First off though you can disconnect the printer from the outlet, count to 10 and then switch it back on. Also, don't be tempted top refill cartridges or use anything but genuine replacements unless you want problems! Been there, done that :>)

Canon Pixma MP130 error 5100


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100
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.

Cannon pixma mp130 5100 service error


Hi You can Try 2 things.
Hope you try it may work
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.
