Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have "E" and "5" flashing (back and forth between them). I've lost manual, so I'm not sure what they mean. I'm pretty sure the "E" is simply for "Empty" since the "Black Ink" and "Color Ink" cartridge lights flash with it--I just want to make sure.
Hi barneyfan -
You're absolutely right - E5 means that the ink is empty (or that the ink can't be loaded for some other reason, such as an incompatible cartridge or improper installation)
For your reference, here is the complete list of error codes for the MP150 with brief descriptions:
E2 No paper (ASF)
E3 Paper jam
E4 No ink
E5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera-Direct Printing
E14 The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 Carriage error
E23 Paper feed error
E24 Purge unit error
E25 ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 Internal temperature rise error
E27 Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 EEPROM error
E33 Paper feed position error
E35 15 USB Host VBUD overcurrent error
E37 17 Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 Other hardware error
E42 22 Scanner error
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
