Question about Canon PIXMA MX700 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have 2 printers so I can test. It has power to the printer but it won't power on. No lights and no sound. does this thing have a fuse or something?
The printer power supply has gone bad.

SOURCE: Canon mx700 5100 error
The 5100 error usually indicates a problem with the printer knowing where the printhead carriage unit is.
Chances are that when you cleared the jam you dislodged, damaged or otherwise skewed the little calibration strip at the back of the printer.
This strip is a clear bit of plastic that has lots of thin black lines on it and it's used by the printer to sense where it is.
If it's not that then it's most likely something jamming the printhead carriage somehow... ink soaked bits of paper are a favourite that I used to miss a lot.
Hope that helps.

I have just had the same problem on one of these Canon MF4150 machines.
The manufactures warranty on our machine had expired just one week before this happened so I had to fix this myself.
The problem we had (which is very likely to be the same cause as yours) is when we removed some torn jammed paper, it had somehow pulled off a spring from inside the machine. The spring was linked to the paper jam sensor.
It does involve a LOT of work to fix it, and unless you are very 'techy' it may be quite a difficult task to do this for the 'average' person.
I had to completely disassemble the machine: Take off the front first (lift up the cover and there is 2 screws at the front and 2 clips on the bottom of the machine) Then remove the 2sides and finally the top (screws should be easy to see, to get the sides off, un-clip along the front edges and gently move them outwards and slide them backwards to release the clips on the back) being careful with the wires going to the scanner part). Then look for the fuser unit which is near the top at the back, there is a black rounded cover over the fuser. To remove the cover, look for 2 small clips one at each side and unclip the cover and gently lift upwards. Under the cover on the left side you will see a small plastic rod which goes from the left side to a small tab in the middle, if you look about half way along that rod you should see a tiny spring, make sure this is clipped on properly and that you are able to rotate the rod and it should spring back to the proper position when you let go.
Once this is done, put it all back together again and it should work fine.
I'm sure a lot of other people probably have this same problem too so I hope this helps someone.

give this a try
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

5100 says the carriage is not moving all the way across the paper path. There could be grease or ink on the encoder strip, the clear strip behind the carriage. Or a small paper scrap inside stopping the carriage.

The problem is on the computer, not on the printer.
"A4" is a paper size, just like "Letter" and "Legal".
You probably have your software application, such as Excel, Word, etc., set to paper size = A4.
Do this in your program on the computer:
[Size] "8 1/2 x 11"
... and print your document again.
