5100 means that either you have a carriage jam or that the print head has failed. Open the cartridge access door and remove the ink cartridges. Clean the contacts on both the cartridges as well as inside the printer. Then reinsert the cartridges. If the problem does not go away unfortunately the print head needs to be replaced.
