Hi You can Try 2 things.

There is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
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.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

You may need to increase the amount of ram in your printer. Or turn it off then on, then try printing the large document. Do this before every print job, if it fixes your error, then you need more ram.

I keep getting an error code 5100.


By your description, you probably have read that the 5100 error means that the movement of the print head holder is blocked. I get this error occasionally and handle it by turning the printer off and then on. The last time it happened, I heard something like a belt snap. Try opening the printer top and seeing if you can gently move the holder. Are you hearing sounds from the printer that are new?
