    I've the same problem... My Canon mp210 displays E5 and I can't do anything... it's suppose to be an "ink problem" due to a chip put in the cartridge, that send to other chip in printer the information that the cartridge is "bad" or "incompatible".

    Someone suggest to change the cartridge or to press red button (RESTART/RESUME) 7 or 8 second, but nothing work.

Sadly Canon cripple many of their printers so that they will not accept the high yield cartridges such as the 50 & 51. As a result your printer the MP210 will only accept the 37 or 38 cartridges which are only half filled, or the 40 and 41 which are fairly full, but don't contain as much as the 50 & 51. All I can suggest is that you could try to sell the 50 on eBay, and send a strongly worded email to Canon.

SOURCE: i installed the drivers for

"E 1 6" error code means Ink has run out.

Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).

If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed. Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.

The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.

Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing. The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.

Mp210 e5 is How to fix ?


E5 says the wrong inks are installed, these can't be refilled and most generics don't work. You fix it by putting in new Canon inks.

Hi, I need your help with this problem: the Canon MP210 ran out of color ink. I have removed both the cartridge. Anyway, the problem is not in the E5 error. The problem is, that the scanner does not work,...


The scanner and the printer are connected together.Both need initialized for printing or scanning.You can't scan if you haven't cartridges in printer and you can't print if the scanner not initialized.Put cartridges back and press and hold the resume button for 5 seconds.If you still have E5 error that mean you have a defective cartridge and you need to replaced.
