Error 5100

I have a brand new Pixma TS5120 and it is throwing a 5100 error I am unable to clear it. Is there a fix or did we buy a dud printer. We have printed maybe 10 pages out of it before it started getting the error. We can't even use it anymore because of this. We turn it on and immediatly get the error, preventing any further use. I could use so help.
