canon ip4300 error message

  69dpa 14:58 29 Nov 2010

I have a canon ip4300 printer which, after some 20/30 seconds of printing comes up with the message Error 5100, turn printer off and retry. The same thing happens again. Any ideas out there?

5100 is a carriage error, check the timing strip for contamination(plastic strip about 1/4" in width)
The unit is not homing, check for obstructions.
