SOURCE: Error 5100 - what does this mean?

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:

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
1) With the printer powered off, hold down the resume button and press the power button.
2) 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.
3) Select one of the following service mode functions by pressing the resume button the specified number of times.
Press Resume Indicator Functions
Zero times Green Power off the printer
1 time Orange Service test print
2 times Green EEPROM information print
3 times Orange EEPROM initialization
4 times Green Waste ink counter setting
5 times Orange Destination settings
6 times Green Print head deep cleaning
7 times Green CD-R test print
8 times Orange CD-R print position correction (horizontal)
9 times Green CD-R print position correction (vertical)
4) Execute the function you have selected (except for model setting) by pressing the power button. The printer will switch itself off after performing the function.

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!

SOURCE: Print head problems 7 yellow lights 1 green light, how do I fix

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.

I have a canon pixma IP6600D printer and just replaced blue, yellow and black ink and the colors are not coming out right


Go to "start menu", then "settings", then "printers and faxes". Right click o your printer, then click on "properties". A window with numerous tabs will open. Go to "maintenance". Click on "deep cleaning" or "cleaning". That will clean the print head that is in your printer, and the colors should come out right.
If the printer hasn't been working for a while, you will need to repeat the cleaning process several times in order to get a satisfying result.
Do bare in mind that this process uses a lot of your ink.

Canon Lines in picture and colored word doc


you should check whether the color ink is out or not. If so replace it with a new one. Otherwise just cleaning the print head will solve your problem. To clean the head Go to control panel > open printers and faxes > right click printer icon > Click properties > Find the option "Clean print head" or somthing sismilar. Use it and your problem could be solved. Note: Some printers have seperate software utilities to clean the print head.
