 2. Canon printer error: "Error 5100"

 

Quick fix

The error 5100 implies a hardware problem. Most of the time, there is a carriage fault, which can include internal contamination, a fault in the carriage drive path, or a band printhead. This happens predominantly with components that are a wearing part. If you have just bought a printer and you get this error during the first set up, there might be some protective material or tape left inside the printer.

 5. Canon printer error: "Error 5B00"

 

Quick fix

Sometimes, continuous ink systems can cause small ink spills inside the printer, which can fill up the ink pads in it and create error code 5B00. Once the inkpad absorber has filled up with ink, the error appears. If you are experiencing these issues with your Canon printer, you may want to consider resetting its ink counter.
