Installed new black ink cartridge, snaps firmly in place. However when I turn on the printer the cartridge holder moves very slowly kind of like the grease is really thick. Cannot see any paper or jams that might be interfering. Can move the holder with my fingers but not sure how much resistance should be by default. (scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being no resistance I would say about a 3). The ON/OFF button blinks 2 times alternating with amber Alarm button twice. When turned on there is a low "burrrrrrrrrr" noise as the holder moves (slowly).

I had the error code 5100 for my canon pixma ip6220d printer and all it was a pen in the track of the cartridges. I've been looking for that pen for awhile too. So I would say look for something in the way of the cartridges. Hope this helps everyone.
Hi You can Try This post is old
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
When this happened to me, I beat my head against the wall until I
finally figured out that the waste ink absorber on the right side
(spongy looking thing), was overflowing, and clogging the nozzles. I
took a piece of paper towel and absorbed some of the ink. Make sure to
wipe the colored ink absorber as well.
