I have a cannon MP 510. When I turn it on, the carriage slams right and left. Then the lights on the front flash Green (left) Orange (right), Green (left) and Orange (right), then stops flashing for a second. The message is error code 5100.

I suspect you had a paper jam and removed it from under the main cover. It sounds like you have got grease on the encoder strip (the long blackish plastic strip that runs the full width of the machine. The carriage looks at the encoder so it knows where it is. Clean the encoder with soapy water on a cotton bud. You may have even snapped the encoder which will mean you will need a new one.
Good luck

Orange/green lights flashing on canon mp 510. computer says not connected but all leads in place. can i fix this


I would suggest switching everything off, unplugging and starting all over again, it may be that simple.
Plan B :Un-install the driver and reinstall.
Plan C :Check that the MP510 is the default printer via Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Printers. Click printer icon and then right click or use task bar.
The flashing lights indicate a fault on the printer itself so check for paper jams, ink cartridges in place etc.
