E5 error how to rectify the error on the printer


I have an MP160 which is now over 7 years old and still going strong. I refill my own cartridges and sometimes get the E5 error after refitting a cartridge. More often than not this fix works for me.
With both cartidges fitted and the printer turned on, open the printer top and wait for the cartridge carrier to move left then right. Immediately it begins to move to the right, quickly push the carrier with your finger as far to the right as it will go and close the top. If you hesitate too long and the carrier starts its travel to the far left, close the top and wait until the whirring noises stop and try again. That usually clears the E5 error.
If it doesn't, open the top, wait for the carrier to park in left position and remove and replace both cartridges. After refitting, give each cartridge a gentle wiggle to help ensure that all the electical contacts are properly seated in the carrier, then close the top.
Note that if the cartridge is faulty, in my experience the E5 cannot be eliminated.
