Hello and Welcome to TSF

Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There could be something obstructing the gears such as dirt. There may be some paper or a corner of a piece of paper caught underneath the rollers. You may have to jiggle it around to even see. Check it thoroughly.

Try reseatng the cartridges, making sure it is firmly in place

It happens

after the file has spooled and the printing process seems ready to start, the green light flashes, the suddenly the turns orange.

Canon Support says basically it's shot. the card is gone. Is that possible or are they trying to get me to buy up?

How old is it? It is possible it has seen its days, they dont last forever. I have given you the only suggestions I have found on the internet, I can search further into it if you would like.

It's only about three years old, and fairly lightly used. That's what is disappointing. If you think it will be productive to look, that wold be nice, but if Canon says it's shot, maybe it is. I appreciate the time you've speant already. Thank you.

This is not your model but it may be related to your issue
The 5100 error in the i850 is carriage related, specifically it points to the
code strip, carriage assembly or logic board.
If it is the logic board or carriage assembly then it is probably time to
replace the printer unfortunately.
