Try updating your printer drivers:

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. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. 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

I own a canon printer MP470.it reads error code 5100 anytime i turn the printer on


5100 is a carriage travel error, something keeping the carriage from moving freely from right to left. Sometimes it is also grease or ink on the plastic strip behind the carriage. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip, but very carefully.

How do i fix error code 5100


Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .
And Also
Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

No drivers are available for the printer for Windows ME. It may be time to upgrade your computer if you want to make use of newer printers and hardware.
