I have pressed on the printer the clean button which didnt fix anything so I went to press the deep cleaning and it came up with the error code 5100.....the same happened when I printed out the allignment sheet after the first page printed the same code came up again. Any ideas?

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 .
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. All The Best: Pineworks

Before printing try using print preview first and adjust yur settings from there. Or go into control panel select printers and reset to default settings, restart your computer and try again. Good luck.
Check within your paper feeder rollers there might be something stuck inside it like paper clips, coins or anything small and solid. If you can find way to open the printer without braking it, that would be nice.
its general problem with commen soln. just put the all pages properly & neatly in ur printer & turn on ur printer whenever u required & after finishing ur printing process turn off it everytime.Also dont give the fake printing commands it also affect ur printing process.
Dont turn off ur printer while process is running. its main reason of paper jam.
Possible that the printhead got affected when it jammed the paper.
Take all the cartridges out and put them all back into the printer. Let it charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern if you see any gaps or breaks or any missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead.
1. First, clean your printer. Get some spray-n-wipe cleaner and a
clean cloth and clean the entire inside of the printer. Also ensure
your paper isn't dirty. Now print a test page. Does the symptom
persist? 2. Remove all jammed paper. Check the paper tray first. Look
closely at the paper rollers nearest where the paper exits the printer;
this is a common source of jams. If you’re trying to print labels, they
will often jam just before exiting the printer.
3. Try to print a test page. Does the printer still jam? If you
can find no source of the jamming, check the printer's message display
window and refer to your user’s manual to look up the printer error
1. Check the printer and/or the software to see if "manual
feed" is selected. If manual feed is selected, the printer may be
looking for paper in another tray. 2. Reseat paper. Ensure printer is on-line. Check for paper jams or obstructions.
3. Likely suspect: paper-out sensor is damaged or broken. Consult a computer repair shop.
You are lucky you can print ANYTHING! My unit has NEVER worked (3 years) due to a hardware defect of HP. I downloaded patches, cleaned/replaced cartridges, etc. Spoke to HP last nite-Was told printer was junk-they don't carry it or any parts to fix it anymore!! I was told to replace it!
