I just had the same 5100 error yesterday. First it was paper jamped and then remove it.
How to remove jamed paper properly, check out the rear bottom under rear feeder, remove the cover there ( which can remove ) and then you will see the jamped paper and should remove it genthly from there.

After that, the 5100 code may occur. Switch off the machine and turn it on again, wait until the LCD display and then press on Menu botton go to Maintenance/Setting and then go to "Maintence" and start to clean/check out as the function listed out there. After performed all of the listed there but not "Deep nozzle cleaning" which will consume a lots of ink, and all function perform correctly, the code will be gone. If not, I don't know, wait until next problem come up ;-).

Have fun.

Hi

I had the same problem. I rang Canon direct and was told that the machine was faulty and depending on how old it is you can either take it back to where you bought if from and exchange for a new one or ask for a refund.

Hope this helps.

Carriage error. Paper or the print mechanism is blocked.

It could mean the rollers don't grip the paper, there is torn paper keeping the rollers from turning, the paper can't stick to the rollers etc.,

Error code 5100 on canon pixma mx700


5100 says the carriage is not moving all the way across the paper path. There could be grease or ink on the encoder strip, the clear strip behind the carriage. Or a small paper scrap inside stopping the carriage.

Error code 5100


5100 means either there is paper stopping the carriage from moving properly, or there is grease on the plastic strip behind the carriage. If you wipe off the grease with a Q-tip the error will go away.
