I had this problem on Canon MB5120 after Win 10 update. Solved by:
Open Windows Control Panel > Programs and Features
Uninstall Canon IJ Scan Utility
Close Control Panel
Download and install the latest drivers for the printer from Canon's website
Turn off the printer, then back on.
Launch the Canon IJ Scan Utility
You should now be able to scan using the controls on your printer
Best to pin Canon IJ Scan Utility to your start menu so you don't have to remember to launch it each time you reboot.

According to the quick setup manual, this printer supports only bluetooth. In other words it is not a wifi printer. In order for you to be able to print on it with a wifi device like a tablet, you will need first to connect your printer with a usb cable to a computer that is connected to your wireless network and then you will need to share the printer on the local network. During the installation process to the connected computer, you should be asked wether you want to share it or not with the network. Simply answer "yes"

Try removing cartridge, turning printer off/on and installing the cartridge back in. Try this couple of times and if it doesn't work, replace the cartridge.1403 indicates 'not recognised' cartridge and there is no way to reset this condition.

Hello thanks for using FixYa

Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer. Actually the printer is not actually loading the cartridge and showing you the error 5100.

To solve these follow the following steps. I hope it works
  • Turn off printer
  • Remove both the cartridges from the printer
  • Use a clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches
  • Return the cartridges
  • Turn on the printer.
Error will be removed
I hope this solution will helpful for you

Please remove all cartridges. Using a moist cloth clean the golden contacts on cartridge as well as printer. DO NOT touch nozzle of cartridge. Dont insert the cartridge yet.

Please do this :
1. Remove the power cable from printer. Remove the USB cable that connects printer to computer (remove it from printer as well as computer's usb port)
2. Press the printer power button and keep pressed for 3 minutes then release
3. Now plug in the power cable and usb cable (connect printer to computer) and power on the printer.

Now insert cartridges and see if error goes away.

Other than doing a reset, unfortunately your Canon may require repair. By resetting the power, you clear the print buffer and reset certain sensors which may be producing the error.

1) Turn off with power button
2) Unplug data cable
3) Unplug power cord for 10 minutes

Plug power cord back in, reattach the printer data cable and press the power button.

I hope this helps!

Error 6000 is a service call error, meaning that the printer needs to be taken into a canon authorized service facility for repair.

This is a line feed error, with the problem originating from the timing disk film or the printer's logic board..

  • Click Start and then click Printers and Faxes to open the Printers folder.
  • If the desired printer icon is missing, please go to Step two.
  • Make sure the desired printer has a check mark next to it which indicates it is set as the default printer.
  • If the desired printer does not have a check mark next to it, right-click the printer icon and then click "Set as Default Printer".
  • Right-click the printer icon, and then click Print Test Page to print a Windows self-test page.
  • If the Windows test page prints successfully, close all windows and try printing from the application you were using before.

After searching the net for help and trying many things like unpluging the printer, taking out the ink cartridges, blowing and hooving the printer etc etc and still not having any luck. I tried something myself and it worked.

This is what I did:-

I got several sheets of A4 paper and forced them into the printer just enough to get the rollers to bite. (Printer is off at this stage) Once the paper is in I turned the printer back on and the printer pulled the paper through and out of the front clearing the problem.

Well this worked for and I hope it helps someone else.
