Canon iP1600 Error 5100

I recently dropped my printer off a fairly short chair and since then its stopped working. When i turn it on the lights alternate in flashing and when i try to print i get error 5100, "Cancel printing and then turn the printer off and then back on, if this doesnt solve the problem consult the manual" Is my printer done for ? or has something inside just gotten loose... any common things happen when a printer is dropped? Thanks in advance

    I have the same symptoms as omarv, although I didn't drop the printer. The suggested solution - cleaning the 1/4" wide ribbon with isopropyl alcohol - did not work.

While I was charging the power chair all the indicater lights came on and with a block lights went from all green to 2 red flashing lights, w/ 2 red lights flashing I stopped and shut it off 4 five se


Two red lights blinking means the electronics on the chair think the batteries are low. Test the voltage on the holes marked 1 and 3. Hole 1 is positive and hole 3 is negative. Your meter must be set on DC volts and the meter leads must be in Common and Volts. If your meter has to have the voltage range set, put it on 200vdc. The red lights will blink if the voltage is approximately 22.5vdc or less. The green lights turn on about 24.5vdc or higher.

My epson tx700 printer dispaly ink pad at end of life and printer not start


A fix from a forum:

Procedure 1 We found this procedure to work for the Stylus Photo 1270 type printer, and understand that it also works for the 870 range and even earlier models like the Stylus Color 740. The error is indicated on these printers by all four lights on the printer flashing. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable, for at least 20 seconds;
  3. When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer's power switch was 'on' - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button);
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
Procedure 2
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete it's processing, then turn off for a few seconds, and back on again for a newly working printer!
Procedure 3 - for 1290 and possibly 890 printers 1290 printer with green (power / data) and red (ink / paper feed) lights flashing alternately:
  1. Switch off printer with panel switch;
  2. Switch off printer at mains switch - leave off for 20+ seconds;
  3. Hold down roll feed and sheet feed buttons;
  4. Switch on at mains;
  5. Switch on at printer panel;
  6. Continue to hold down roll and sheet feed buttons until both green and red lights flash together in synchronisation, not alternately;
  7. Switch printer off and then, after a few seconds, on again at mains switch;
  8. When red and green lights are both flashing in synchronisation, release the roll and sheet feed buttons;
  9. Press and hold down the ROLL FEED button (the one at the extreme left) and keep it down until the machine finishes whirring, cleaning etc and the green light comes on steady;
  10. Release the roll feed button and all should be well.

I recently purchased a alante mobility chair for $25.00. When I turn it on it constantly beeps. Your tech support thought it was set for burglar mode but later said I totally baffled them, they did not...


If you cannot reach local Technical support, Contact Golden Technologies at 800-624-6374 for assistance. Was the power chair working, then stopped? Are there any flashing lights? Have you charged the battery?
Good luck!

When turning on joystick control the chair moves but when i stop the lights start to blink and stops moving horn works if i play with the on/off it start to works agian


fantasy when it stops count the number of flashes. For example it might flash 5 times pause flash 5 times pause etc. This is the flash code and your manual will give you what it means. Being an intermittent problem can be a bear to trouble shoot. It would be nice to know what chair you have and whether Medicare purchased the chair for you. If Medicare purchased the chair then they will pay for most of the repair cost Hope this helps you

WHEN I TURN THE POWER ON FOR MY JT3 ULTRA POWER CHAIR, THE LIGHTS THAT INDICATE THE STATUS OF BATTERY BLINK ON AND OFF (REGARDLESS OF BEING FULLY CHARGED OR NOT) AND THE CHAIR WILL NOT MOVE. SOMETIMES,...


I would replace the batteries with new ones anyway to make sure that you are getting full power and if the problem stops great if it continues then you have eliminated one possible problem. A low battery will cause the problem and these chairs diagnose themselves with the controller giving you flash codes to indicate a problem. I would just check for a loose connection in the wiring when you have the seat off changing the batteries and give the base a good cleaning( without water) (Use those cleaning wipes from dollar store) Hope this helps you

Chair won't go. Lights flash


Check your freewheel levers. They must be engaged or the lights will flash and the chair will be inoperable. These levers are under the shroud behind drive wheels. (One on each side)

All lights are flashing


Quit reloading same driver and look for new updated drivers that will run on your operating system.
Try reverting back to your old operating system if you recently upgraded to the new operating system.
