Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .
And Also
Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

All The Best: Pineworks

If the cover is closed and you have found the switch and tested it ok, try to unplug the printer and restart.

I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Hello, Jordanreinha -

You will need to install a color cartridge, too.

Oddly enough, with color printers, both the black and color ink/s are used to print black. Go figure?

Best wishes.

Your feeder wheels need to be cleaned, open it up yourself from diagrams online, locate the feeder wheels, remove them, clean them with rubbing alcohol and a lint free rag, that will take care of the problem, if however the wheels are worn or how chips in them, then you can order the replacement parts

Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

It means that not all contacts are working.
1. Try this first - unplug the printer for a minute from the power supply and then replug.
2. Make sure you have removed ALL packaging materials from the printer. Details can be found here
3. Try to reseat the ink cartridge. Details here.
