Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
That error code has something to do with your rollers being obstructed. I was able to find this solution...
"it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)"

SOURCE: error message 5100
In this particular printer, this Error is described as Cartridge Home Position error. Try the steps that I am giving you:----
1.Turn off and unplug the printer from the power supply.
2.Remove any paper.Buy a can of compressed air from an electronics shop or computer store. Use the compressed air (Not a vacuum!!!) to blast out any dust bunnies, paper particles and debris. (Don't do this with the cartridges removed as you're likely to fill the printhead with air!!)Use isopropyl alcohol and a cotton swab (Qtip) to clean the plastic strip that runs the length of the guide rail (the metal rail that the cartridge carriage moves along), it may be contaminated with ink and debris.Remove and reinsert the ink cartridges inside the cartridge carriage to ensure that they're connecting properly.
3.With the power off, carefully slide the print head (carriage) to the center of the guide rail. You should not have to force it! (There will be some light resistance but it should move quite easily by gently pushing on it with your finger.)
4.Close all the access doors, plug it back in, connect your USB cable and turn on the power.As it runs through the initialization, the printer should sense that the carriage is out of position and automatically move it back to where it should be.
Thank you, Have a nice day.
