Send it to a certified shop if it is under warranty, you don't wanna mess with this yourself, the problem is an error somewhere in the carriage encoder signal path, could be a logic fault, or it could be mechanical (most likely) these machines have crappy tolerances.

This error 5100 occurred on my PIXMA MP780 just after replacing 2 color cartridges, yellow and cyan. The error continues to show up after switching Feed Source to Front Tray, and regardless whether print job is color or grayscale. The replacement cartridges are not from Canon, but did come off a brick-n-mortar retail shelf. The printer is pretty new. Was initially surprised to notice that both cartridges were leaking a bit when the seals were removed. Am wondering if some of the comments about using non OEM ink have some bearing on this problem. Comments welcome....
