Second opinion] I was trying to replace the blue printer cartridge and then I got a message of error 5100. The instructions where to cancel the print which I did on my iPad since I couldn’t find any cancel button on the printer. Now the tray that holds the cartridges doesn’t move to the middle to try to check the position of the new cartridge

Technician's Assistant: Is your printer displaying the error on all print jobs, even after you restart it?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the printer driver software?

I do not Remember. A technician was here a few weeks ago and I don’t know if he would’ve updated it

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Remember. A technician was here a few weeks ago and I don’t know if he would’ve updated it. Not reslly

Not right now. I Left to meet a friend and could not wait any longer. I had a Cannon printer before this one which I really liked so stayed with Cannnon. However, I have had problems with this one and it has become cumdersome to get help.
