Hi You can Try
Same old errors
Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

you may have a clogged ink nossle for black ink, so you may need to do a head/nossel clean. you can do this via the maintenance section of your printer properties. also the black ink may be empty, even if it shows as not empty, this is because printer just assume and use guesswork to tell how much is left in the tanks, and sometimes they do get it wrong.

If this is a recent operating system upgrade to Windows 7, it might be advisable to uninstall your printer driver before re-installing with the downloaded software.

Part of the printhead is blocked, there is a long nozzle set for black and it cycles thru the whole length to keep wear even. You might pull out the printhead and see if there is lint or paper covering part of the nozzle assembly. Otherwise you may need a new printhead.

That error says the purge assembly is not moving properly, check for paper stuck over on the right where the printhead parks, also if the squeegee is stuck over the cleaning pads you need to push it back to allow the pads to come up properly.

Due to the wastage of ink in the cleaning proc the cleaning head and the mechanism had become clogged and by sealing the gause cover jelified the ink unableing the succtionto work the sugestion was to renew the mechanism unit ...TO DISMANTLE the printer rais the lid....the two ends must be levered carefuly from the back as you will see the front has a tiny lug holding them on ...it is a push-fit and click 3 hiden lugs hold the sides on ...use a thin bladed knife some damage may occur to them but there is no other way once loose pull the sides forward to take the light colour ""L" shape ends off the unit... this will expose 2 slots in the front and one each side near the back ...a flat tool gently pushed in 1/8th inch will release the top cover ...move the ink carrage to the centre psn exposing the cleaning pads ...I was unable to go any further as although lose the pads were sprung and was fitted to a lifting mech with a cleaning blade which scrapes the surplace ink from the suction unit simular to a mini silk screen blade...

Try running its Clean Cartridges command.

Canon printers tend to refuse to print if any of the tanks is empty. Replace the Cyan.

It could be you have updated your OS and need a driver
If you haven't updated you probably need to replace the cartridges. I have a canon i860 which I have had for years and often the problem is the ink is dried. I found a place to replace them very cheaply. I have provided you the link below.I actually order then in sets for far less than I would pay for one single cartridge in the stores.

Hi Albert
Only do this if you are desperately keen to black ink all over your hands and desk.
I did it for a year, refilling all the cartridges. I never once managed to keep my hands clean. In the end my print-head died. It didn't like the black ink and I had to replace it. Now, despite the cost, I only use genuine canon cartridges.
If you are still keen, then you have to drill a hole in the top of the cartridge. Do it in the area where it says push. If you do it in the area above the sponge it will all go wrong afterwards. You must also block up the big hole in the bottom where the ink comes out (that's were you get all messy) and then use a syringe to squirt fresh ink in through the hole you have drilled. You can also get messy here as you sometimes get bubbles blowing back and bursting, putting a nice layer of ink speckles on whatever is nearby - often your spectacles!
When you have got enough ink into the reservoir, you have to block up the hole you drilled. Some ink kits come with rubber bungs to put in the hole - but beware - they rarely fit properly and they let air into the chamber. This has the unfortunate side effect of letting all your fresh ink run out of the bottom of the cartridge and all over the inside of your printer. After several instances like that I threw the bungs away and used a blob of blu-tac which I double sealed in place with tape.
The next trick is to remove whatever you used to block up the big hole on the bottom and try and get the cartridge back into the printer without making a mess. If you succeed you will have saved a couple of pounds or so.
Unfortunately, as I found, the saving is short lived as the hassle is too great.
Anyway (if I'e not put you off) good luck

You need to do a nozzle check print first to see that all the colors are coming out ok. If you hold the resume button until the green light flashes twice, it will print the test pattern. If colors are missing you may need a new printhead. Generic inks are sometimes the wrong color, and in this printer you shouldn't have any photo inks, as they are not the right color for your printer.

Canon BubbleJet... | Answered on Dec 13, 2009

Generally speaking the Orange light flashes 5 times to indicate a print head error.

Did you recently remove and install the printhead? It may just need to be reseated. The printer may also need a service repair.


Canon BubbleJet... | Answered on Dec 12, 2009

Shake the ink and fix it back to the printer I think it should work like that
