Uninstall the Epson Printer software that came with your printer using the uninstaller. Follow the on-screen prompts to uninstall the product.
From the hard drive, click Applications, then click Utilities and select the Printer Setup utility.
If your printer shows up in the printer list, select Printer. If the printer does not show up in the list, choose either Bonjour or Rendezvous as the connection type and then select the printer from the list.
Under the Print Using list, select epson stylus CX5000.
In the list of available drivers, select the epson stylus CX5000 - Gimp-Print driver.
Using the Gimp-print driver might provide basic print-only functionality. This driver is a built-in driver in the Macintosh Operating System and will not provide all of the features that are provided using a direct USB connection.

Hi, Error E22 5100 is a carriage error. Check that nothing is stopping the cartridges from sliding back or fore acroos the silver bar inside the front of the printer.

I solved this on mine by removing and reinstalling the print head.
1. Remove and set aside the ink cartidges (don't make a mess)
2. lift the gray print head lock lever that is to the left of where the ink cartridges go.
3. Lift out the print head out without touching the ink ports inside, the contacts on the back, or the print nozzles on the bottom. The print head is the grey thing with circular ink ports that seat the ink cartridges. there are good pictures in the PDF of the Easy Setup Instructions available on the Canon Printer website. Look under the printer, then support, then downloads: http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/0900002776/mp510_esi_us_v2.pdf .
4. Put the print head back in, lock the lever, reinstall the cartridges in the roper positions. And voila!
If this doesn't work you may actually need a new print head.

Uninstall all your drivers (and delete the preferences) and download the Mac drivers from this link. The drivers that came with your printer were developed before Snow Leopard came out.

Testimonial: "thanks, this worked really well. I can now scan and print OK. Thanks Job well done."
Code 5100 refers to a carriage that is not freely moving from side to side. Look to the far left and right for anything that would impede the carriage path.
Also, it is possible that the clear plastic encoder strip just behind the carriage path has become smudged with (most often) grease. You can clean the strip with a cotton swab dibbed in alcohol.
I hope this helps!
