Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have just installed new cartridges (both black and color) in my PIXMA MP150 printer. The black one works fine but the printer is not recognizing that a new color one has been installed. The yellow light on the front of the printer is on and when I view the available ink it shows the color is out, I have taken it out and put it back in several times and don't know what else to do, Can you adivse me?

Hello Dan! Welcome to FixYa!


Error E5 means that the ink cartridge is not installed or the ink cartridges is not installed properly or may be
non-supported ink cartridge is installed.
It may also mean that if you have both cartridges in printer one or both are failed.

To solve this problem, Check print cartridges and replace first color, if not help replace black ink. Install the appropriate fine cartridge and also If the lines are misaligned or resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the fine cartridge alignment and make it aligned.

I hope this solution helps you
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.


Sir, Your Rating as FIVE Stars for this solution and words of appreciation will be esteemed

E5 is a Cartridge cannot be recognized error.
Reinstalling the cartridge could clear the alarm.
If this does not work,
Removed both ink cartridges.
Turn off printer and unplug fron electrical outlet.
Wait at least 5 minutes.
This will let the printer reset itself.
Plug printer back in and turn on.
Printer will cycle and an E5 will appear.
Installed back ink cartridges.

My canon pixma mp150 is showing error 5?


E5 is saying that ink is not installed, generic cartridges, or not installed properly, If all those are good you could have a defective carriage assembly and need shop work.

Printer won't process new catridges. These cartridges have been refilled.


Did you install the original cartridge? if you have the old empty cartridge, try to install it and check the error is empty cartridge..if so the problem is the newly installed cartridge. try to buy the new original one.
