Also i just got one from a thrift store and found that there is a spring catch that holds the carriage up in the rest position and the spring had sprung and was not holding the carriage up and the ink jets got messed up and spewed ink all over the place lol took me 3 hours to clean the gunk to then find the spring problem..... to check this open the cover where the ink is. After the cartridges go to the change out spot on the left then carefully reach in with needle noise pliers and push in and lift up on the purge it should raise then when you ease it back it should lock into place and then there is a spring lever as your looking into the printer closest to you in front of the purge if you pull back gently and the purge does not move downwards then that is your problem its a pain in the @#$ to reset, the bottom of the lodges in front of the lower arm assembly of the catch, the top of the spring it goes forward towards the purge and is wedged underneath a small platform with a small notch about 1/16"x 1/32" but after i did this no more error 5100 now i just need new ink cartridges : D

Tips for a great answer:
Error 5100 on canon is a Carriage Home Position Error. Try
reseating the printer cartridges. If that doesn't help make sure there is no
paper stopping the carriage from moving right to left. Try cleaning the plastic
strip (encoder strip, behind the carriage) that runs the length of the
carriage, it may be contaminated. Use alcohol and a swab (Q-tip) to clean.
Before cleaning unplug it from the power supply. Hope this helps...please
post back for further assistance.
