Question about Canon Pixma iP6600D InkJet Photo Printer
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Luza, A 5100 error is a carriage problem. That means it could be the code strip, carriage assembly or logic board. First make sure nothing is keeping the print head from moving all the way across the printer. If the smallest thing blocks the head from going all the way across it will generate this error. You'll want to look hard for ANY obstructions anywhere. Throughly check the gears and rollers for obstructions too. Second the code strip (or timing strip) is the 1/4 inch plastic strip that runs across the printer and through the head carriage. It's got supports on both sides. If becomes dislodged it will generate this error. (it's got a tesnsion spring on one end) I have a feeling that is your problem. That somehow when you replaced the cartridges you may have dislodged the code strip. That might account for not being able to correctly align the print head too. Make sure it's straight, level and secure. Also make sure it's not dirty. Grease or dirt on the code strip can generate a 5100 error. You can clean it with a damp cloth (water) but be careful if your going to remove it from it's anchors. You can try cleaning the steele bar that the carriage runs across as well, but you'll have to lube it back up with a cloth dampened with some 3 in 1 oil or a light machine oil. If none of that works and your ABSOLUTLY SURE there is nothing in there blocking the printer then it must be either the carriage assembly or logic board. If either is the problem you're going to need service on the unit or a new printer. I hope this helps. Please let me know how you make out, Dude

Perform these steps and reset the EEPROM:
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.

SOURCE: print head overheat
You can buy a new printhead, if that is the problem. did you try printing after the machine cooled down?
Try going on eBay and search for an MP780 printhead...it should cost about $50-60 or about $60-85 elsewhere, check Canon too.
Possibly, a cleaning kit might unclog anything plugged, though a electrical problem is probably fixed only with a new head. New heads snap in to the printer...Good Luck!

That's not a printhead problem, it's saying that the waste ink absorber is full. You need to have them replaced at a shop where they can also reset the waste ink counter.
