I have tried reseating the cartritdge, and turning unit on/off, but problem persists.
I am using only the Black ink, the color cartridge is there but empty.
'Ink cartridge Setting' under the 'Maintenance' tab is set to Black
Problem started when I replaced the Black cartridge with a
remanufactured one from OfficeMax. The printer worked fine then, but
next time I turned it on the Error appeared.
Is it past the point of no return?
Why i use that resetter also cant reset it, even im using step "Waste ink counter reset" also cant done it. My printer error is (E27).

Turn off printer. Remove both the cartridges from the printer. Use a
clothe moistened with alcohol to clean the surface contact on the
cartridges where the terminals inside the printers touches. Return the cartridges and turn on the printer.
Error 5100 means that the cartridge can not be detected by the printer.
Hello You can Try
Error Code 5100
Solution 1: Clean the timing strip.
Solution 2: The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .
Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. All The Best: Pineworks
Cause: Movement of the Cartridge Holder is blocked. Action: Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Cartridge Holder from moving, cancel printing from your computer, then turn OFF the machine and turn it back ON again.
With power off, move the cartridge holders manually reseat the cartridges. Then power back on. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work
you can also uninstall and reinstall printer drivers if you have the cd or visit the manufactuarer's website and download those drivers.. be sure to reboot after uninstalling them too.. if you need additional assistance let me know...
also check to be sure the printer cartridge is all the way in too..
that's helped many others as well.. also try taking the cartridges out and shake them for a few minutes, reinsert them and reboot everything.. let me know what worked out for you..
