    I had just finished printing when it took another 4x6 photo paper as if to start printing. Then it stopped ( as though it has realised its error ). I then had to pull out the photo paper and ever since it makes a horrible noise when I first turn it on and the orange light keeps flashing and the computer shows error 5110. There is no paper jammed and opening the top and closing it and turning it on and off makes no difference.

    I looked in its orifices to see if theres anything obviously wrong but cant find anything.

To find out more on the nature of the Error type - go to the Canon customer support for this machine. I suspect it means the Waste Ink tank need cleaning out. For even more info take a look at www.fixyourownprinter.com

Cannot get brand new printer to work.

This information is from a Canon, I don't see an error 5011. Only the following info. below.

"****" is displayed in the alphanumeric character and depends on the error occurred.
  • 5100/5110 is displayed:
    Cancel printing, and turn off the machine. Then clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Print Head Holder from moving, and turn on the machine again.
    Important
    • Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine. The machine may not print out properly if you touch it.
    • If the problem is not resolved, contact the service center.

  • In other cases:
    Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply.
    Plug the machine back in and turn the machine back on.
    If the problem is not resolved, contact the service center.

Tank absorber full and lights blinking

The POWER Lamp Flashes Orange Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full
The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Note
Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink tank becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible.

Service error 5100?

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. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.

5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
1. clean **** strip film
2. clean **** strip film sensor (back of head carriage)(use contact cleaner)
Also, try this reset procedure:

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Canon IP3000 error code


read entire solution first, see the 6 modes section.
First thing you need to do is print an EEPROM information page, step number 2 below.
Once you have an EEPROM print you can reset the waste ink counter, if needed, which is step number 4 below.
Service Mode: This printer has a service mode for service-related settings and for performing test prints. The operator panel buttons are used to enter the desired service mode.
Service Mode Operations
With the printer powered off, hold down the "Resume Button" and press the "Power Button".

While holding down the "Power Button", release the Resume Button" and press the "Resume Button" twice in succession. Now release the "Power Button".

The indicator will blink in green and remain lit in green.

Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the “Resume Button” the specified number of times.

1 time = Service test print.
2 times = EEPROM information print.
3 times = EEPROM initialization
4 times = Waste ink counter resetting
5 times = Destination settings
6 times = Print head deep cleaning

Then press the “Power Button” one time to perform selected function.

If you press the "Power Button" two times it will take you out of service mode.

This information is listed above in this thread and many times in other Canon threads in this forum. I simplified Canons wording so I could remember the service mode functions easier.

Canon i860 - Service Error 5100 I have tried the reset procedure several times (Resume, then power and hold power, resume 2x, release power) but the light never stops blinking to go on. Any...

Start with the printer OFF

1. Hold down RESUME and then hold down POWER
2. release RESUME (while still holding down the POWER)
3. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
4. The green light will blink and the printer will make some noise. Wait until this is finished, you are now in the printer's diagnostic mode.

To select one of the functions below, use the RESUME button and then press POWER to execute:

# of RESUME Presses - Light Color - Function

0 - green - Power Off
1 - orange - Service Test Print: Extended nozzle check pattern
2 - green - EEPROM information print
3 - orange - EEPROM initialize
4 - green - reset waste ink counter (For the Canon waste tank full error)

Remember... ATTEMPT THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!
