Hi guys,
Service error 5100 indicates that carriage return (CR) operation is not performed successfully. After the printer turned on, printer initialize some operation include CR operation. This error happens when carriage part (carriage unit) has problem when move right and left in initialization process.
This may be caused by:

  • Faulty carriage part so thatit cannot read film encoder properly. As a result, carriagepart move on uncontrolled.
  • Dirty film timing **** strip (Horizontal film encoder;available only ini series and above) so carriage part cannot read film encoder properly.
  • Another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in carriage path, blocking carriage part from moving.
To fix this problem you may try the following tips:
  • Check if any material present in carriage path; remove (clear) it
  • Check if film encoder is dirty; wipe slightly with moistened clothe.
  • At last, if carriage part is faulty you need to replace it.
Hope this will be helpful for you. Please don't forget to rate me.
Regards,

How do I solve Kyocera KM-1650 error code C6400


Usually these are just software issues which can be solved by uninstalling the old one and reinstalling it. Cleaning the system with a cleaning utility of all old unwanted files, links etc may help solve the issue. Restoring your system to an earlier date when you didnot have any issues will also solve the problem. Especially in Windows Xp.

I cannot get my cartridges to align. I keep getting a error message. It print black, but not in color


Have you already solved your problem? There are at least three posts about the same problem and about the PSC 950.
If you solved your problem, please comment, saying how you did it, so you can help others.

If you didn´t solve it, check this HP FAQ:
Solving Print Cartridge Alignment Problems

Note that it says (in the end) that you can bypass the alignment page and use the information from the last successful alignment in your printer, by pressing and hold the Enter button, and then press Setup .

I offered this same suggestion to another poster, who replied it didnn't solve his/her problem. It might work for you though. Please try and give some feedback (even if it is not positive).
