5100 is a carriage travel error, either something is stopping the carriage or there is ink or grease on the encoder strip.

Testimonial: "Great! That's what I did."
5100 is a carriage error, make sure there is no paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left, and then clean the encoder strip, behind the carriage, carefully with a damp Q-tip. Usually grease gets on the strip and gives you that error.
