Check the paper tray, make sure the guide pushes the paper to one side, also make sure the back rest is at right position, meaning set for letter if letter size is used. and last check the feed rollers, if dirty, you can use alcohol to clean, i use WD40, and wipe off excess that rubber does not absorb.

Where do you put envelope to print on it?

You are brave trying to print to an envelope...remove paper from tray, put in "plain" envelope, print side down, flap should point to left ( I put a dab of glue stic on flap to hold it securely) will print from top or bottom tray. If envelope keeps coming out askew...make sure to check for a wayward piece of paper stuck in roller from last paper jam.

I have just replaced 2 ink tanks and they are in correctly. But after printing only one page which is slightly out of alignment up comes the error 5100 code. What happened ?

The print carrier is being interfered with. Take out the cartridges and make sure that there is nothing interfering with the movement of the carriage. The paper being askew indicates that there is something inside the printer interfering with the paper path and the 5100 message indicates the obstruction is also affecting the ink carriage.

Contents alignment on printed/copied paper

I would recommend a good cleaning of the rollers with a damp rag (old t-shirts are great for this). Some canned air to blow out the insides always seems to improve operation.  
If this is helpful to you, would you please rate this solution? Thanks!

The color cartridge is stuck.

How did you manage this? I am not being rude, what i mean is, how did it occur, did it print and then jam, did you put it in and then try to print without success. Is it printing even though it won't come out. You may have put it in slightly askew and it can contact to print but jams when you try to pull it out. try gently and very very softly turning it left and very very gentle pulling, really slow. try this in the opposite direction too. Be so very gentle as if it is at an odd angle you could damage your cartridge or printhead.
