    Error 5100 is wrong cartridge position.

    First follow the indications here: ERROR LCD: Error Code 5100

    .

    either the ink carriage is stuck or you need to clean the encoder strip with isopropyl alcol and cotton.
    The encoder strip is the plastic strip that runs aside the traction belt, The encoder strip is a sensor that tells the printer control board the position of the ink carriage.

Printer is not printing from the computer. copy


Hello Try
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.
