  1. I fix the printer using the method in this article http://www.itjungles.com/printers/fixed-canon-printer-error-5100. Basically just had to remove the piece of paper got stuck in the printer.

  2. Mine was a grease smear on the clear plastic strip (encoder) behind the print head, the smear caused not to find home. I did cause the smear with my knuckles while cleaning the head cleaning squeegees by the ink dumps / head cleaning station.
