Question about HP Printers & Copiers
If this happens often and then eventually you are able to get back to work. I'll explain how these printers work.
When you send a print task to the printer, the data that is the construct for your document it resides on the printer in a temporary storage location called RAM. Once the instructions and the data are in RAM hitting the Cancel button will not have an effect until there is a break in the program execution to print. Sometimes nearly all the document will print before it cancels and this may take some time. The Cancel command must intercept a line of prgram execution. So just be patient.
If you need to immediately stop printing for some reason, the best thing is to pull the plug on the printer. Leave it unplugged for some time. As you put the power plug back in, press and Hold Cancel until the printer finishes the startup self check test, otherwise it may just pickup where it left off.
If this is a problem where no matter what you do, and the unplug replug while holding down the Cancel button doesn't clear your problem, unplug the printer again and look next to the digital clock at the bottom right of the PC screen. You may see an icon for your printer there. Double click that and you should see all the printer tasks listed in the printer que. Select all of those and then drop the file menu down and select cancel all or delete all.

SOURCE: Service error 5100.

Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.
Please be advised that error 5100 indicates a carriage error and the machine will require service."
However I managed to solve it by myself by perform few paper path tests as there was a paper jam inside.

HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Start by totally shutting down your computer system, NO lights should be visible or blinking.Now completely disconnect all cables and cords from your printer. Remove the electric cord from the wall socket. This should totally clear your printer. Wait 5 minutes and plug the power cord into the printer first, then attach the printer cable that comes from your computer, then plug your printer power cord into the wall socket. Now cold boot your computer. It should recognize your printer and you should be good to go.
