Thanks Guru. Moving the print head to the left enabled me to find the red rubber band that had somehow found its way into the printer & got in the way of the print head. Now it works perfectly!
Saved me having to buy a new printer, never mind the cost of the spare ink cartridges I keep in case I run out.

This means that the Movement of the Print Head Holder is blocked. To remedy this carefully check the printer and clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Print Head Holder from moving. With the power off the Head Holder should be able to be moved gently by hand. Cancel printing from your computer, then turn off the machine, and turn it back on again.

Error code 5100


5100 means either there is paper stopping the carriage from moving properly, or there is grease on the plastic strip behind the carriage. If you wipe off the grease with a Q-tip the error will go away.

Error code 5100


Error code 5100 /this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is
something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that
you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or
in my case popcorn. Check VERY thoroughly.
