I have a Pixma MP510, Canon Printer.
The paper is not loading...you hear it printing, but, the paper doesn't load.
And when it does load....it scrolls blank first, and then prints, so, only 1/2 of what I want gets printed.

It is best that you take your printer to a certified service center for Canon, its possible that it just need cleaning and that something is tripping the sensor and sending the wrong signal. Gheck if the paper feeding sensor is ok, usually the trigger could be broken, compare it with the same printer and look for differences.
On the otherhand, if you are sure and you are a technical person with repair experience, please check with the Canon main distributor or sales office near you. They have parts specific to your needs, if not they can point you to the right place.
Another alternative is to go a Canon repair shop and ask if they have a scrap printer with the same model as yours.
There should be something like a printer properties menu. Find it and adjust the colour controls to manual and reduce the magenta settings etc. Also make certain you have the right type of paper selected on your printer, to the one you are using.
Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in: - Carriage unit - Timing **** strip film - Logic board assembly - Carriage motor First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
