Re: how do i clear system error E100 on an IR 10181 canon...
While what Dimitri said is true, you can also check the drum unit. There is a flag on the left rear(when holding it by the handles)that actuates the laser shutter. if the flag is missing the shutter doesn't open there for you get an E100 error. Could be as easy as replacing the drum.

When you were blowing dust you would have forced a leaf switch sensor into ON position hence this error NEVER BLOW TO CLEAN DUST ALWAYS SUCK DUST OFF INTO CLEANER . A simple tap with your palm all around the printer could set it back if not pro service
You can try to reconect the conectors on dc controler board, and on laser unit, clean the laser, check if the laser shuter is broken. If notthing helps the next step would be to chnage the laser unit and/or dc pcb
The most common cause for E100 is the drum unit. At the rear of the drum unit should be a small peg pointing into the machine. This gets broken off. It's purpose is to opperate a laser cut off shield when the drum is removed so to prevent laser exposure. If peg is missing laser will not be detected by the system and give E100. Can be repaired or will require a new drum if it has done more than 40 to 60K copies.
