Hi all, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.

CANON ERROR CODE 5010
There is an issue with the purge unit inside the printer.
If you are under warranty you are in luck, but first ask yourself how old is the printer and is it worth fixing and if not get a new one.

U071 more than one ink tank error ....... help!!!
I think I have come up with a solution!
When the error happens:
Open the cover and re-seat the cartridge.
Tilt the whole printer forward about 30 degrees or more
Close the cover.
has worked for me multiple times now. I think there is a small sensor
behind the contact chip that detects ink levels and when my printer is
flat the level of ink is lower than the sensor, when I tilt the printer
the error vanishes because the ink covers the sensor. Though I am not
sure why the software in the printer determines that there are duplicate cartridges instead of just a low ink warning.
you still can't get it try taking a standard pencil eraser and gently
rub it over the contacts to clean off any oxidation, also do this to
the prongs that contact the chip that are inside the cartridge carrier,
They bend easily so do it very lightly.

Error code 5100
Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is
something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that
you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or
in my case popcorn. Check VERY thoroughly.

The printer won't print.
(1) Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over
(2) Remove the ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or isopropyl alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head and each ink cartridge.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now
If that does not work, then you need to try soaking the print head. In this case:
(1) Remove the print head from the printer
(2) Soak it in hot water for an hour or so
(3) Remove it, let it dry completely
(4) Replace the print head and cartridges and test it
