Hi Hemalatha,

This error is a "Jam" error. Look for any objects / pieces of paper that is stuck in the paper feeders (front and back). Secondly there is a timing strip that gets dirty and could also cause this error. Cleaning it could solve this problem. Hereafter, press and hold the "Clear" button for 5 seconds or more to reset the error log.

Here is a tutorial on how to fix this error:

check the status of the printer in its driver. the error will be shown there. error 5100 is the most common. error 5100 means the carriage is experiencing difficulty in moving itself.

This means there is something jamming the mechanism. You should take it to a repair specialist or do your best to check for blockages yourself. It can be the tinest little thing. Check everywhere!
