Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Try this: Press the resume button (or cancel).
If not, unplug the unit and plug it back in.
Or, try this: Open the lid so the printer moves the head to the center position and unplug the power cord. Remove the ink and head. Plug the machine back in and let it go through it's startup routine. When it's done, open the lid and reinstall the head/ink cartridges.
If this does not work, you may have a bad printhead. Printheads for Canons cost anywhere from $50 to over $100 depending on where you get them and what model the printer is.
WARNING If, during your testing, the machine suddenly dies completely (no power at all) do not purchase a new print head. Some Canon models have a bad type of failure where the printhead goes bad and shorts, which draws too much current from the main board causing the main board to blow. If you replace the printhead in a machine with a bad main board caused by this failure you will just blow the new printhead. Remember this only applies if your machine suddenly dies completely (no power at all).

Cancel printing, turn off the machine. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the FINE cartridge holder from moving, and turn the machine on again. If not remedied, turn off machine, unplug the power cord of the machine from power supply. Plug machine back in and turn power back on. If problem is not resolved, please contact service center. This info is from Advanced Guide Troubleshooting Section under An Error Message is Displayed on the LCD....error code 5100. This is a link to Canon to download Guides.
