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.

Canon ip1600 error 5100

First, reseat your ink cartridges.
if reseating your printer cartridges doesn't work, keep looking for things that would cause the printing head carriage (the thing the print cartridges sit in) to not function properly.


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)
3. fix purge unit


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe
