SOURCE: Canon Pixma MP830 error 5100

As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.

HI,

Please the pixma off and open the lid.Now manually slide the cartridge-tray to the left.

Use a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored.See if it is stuck in a kind of upward position and look if the mechanism that moves the tray is released if not then touch it and it will be loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

Let me know if you still get the same error.

Thank you

SOURCE: my canon mp830 had an error code 6500. I turned it

The 6500 error code is a logic board error code. Sounds like it needs new logic board assembly.

The scanner lock switch may be in the locked position. Lift the cover and check the slide switch located on the top front left. If this is not the problem, you will have to have a service center look at the problem.

Hello,

The error 6500 refers to other hardware error. This error results from printer hardware failure and the only solution is replacing the malfunctioning hardware.

It is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.

I can't even fax from the machine with error code 6500 showing. Thus, it isn't just a printing problem.


Error code 6500 on the MP830 is for a PCI bus error. The Canon service manual suggests the remedy is to replace the Logic Board. That wouldn't be cost effective if you could even get the spare part.

Sorry I can't be of more help.
