    Hi jude,

    Both cartridges are genuine but I have since found that the colour one that had been refilled had a broken seam. I'm not sure it this was the problem so I will buy a new colour cartridge tomorrow. Does you know if I can run this printer with just the black cartridge?

Have you installed a new ink cartridge? one of your inks may have been dead.

You need to use a genuine cannon cartridge since cannon printers does not accept generic inks.

hope this helps, please rate.

What is e5 error


E5 error code occurs in certain models of Canon Pixma printers such as the Canon MP160 and Canon MP150, you may receive an E5 error when trying to print. In this state, you will not be able to use any of the functions of your printer. The error itself is an ink cartridge error. It may be that you are using generic or off-brand ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma printer. Canon Pixma printers do not work with other brands of print cartridges; invest in Canon brand ink cartridges and this should take care of your problem.

press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.
