Hi, I recently got a canon pro-10, it was printing but now it has error 5100, this error happens even when the printer is connected to nothing, the light after it turns on and does all of it's maintence will start blinking 2 orange blinks.
according to the manual 5100 means...
Two flashes Orange Lamp
Cancel printing, and turn off the printer. Then clear the jammed paper or protective material that is preventing the print head holder from moving, and turn on the printer again.
I've tried the following:
The printer appears online and as if all ink is present. The printer head during maintence activities moves across seemingly fine? I can take video later if needed, and check if it's stopping before it moves all the way across. My theory is that the printer needs some form of hard reset, but I dont know how to do that. The printer displays as online, when attempting any form of printer maintence from the My Canon app, the 5100 error is given, and then the printer is marked as busy. I wondered if there was a more serious way to reset the printer or something perhaps? I'm at a loss.
