5100 error means the printhead can't move freely from right to left or there is ink or grease on the clear plastic strip that runs across behind the printhead. Check for paper scraps and use a damp Q-tip to wipe the encoder strip and your errors should go away.

    Wow. I have been trying to solve this for a long time, and now it works thanks to your advise of cleaning the clear strip, although I did use a damp tissue. THANKS!!

5100 error is a carriage error. Could be caused by the carriage unit, timing strip, logic board or carriage motor. Check that nothing is obstructing the carriage from moving freely and that the clear timing strip is ok.
