As far as I know, you can tell the Canon software to ignore this issue and it will continue to try and print. I can't tell you exactly how, it's just something I overheard from one of my colleagues when he was trying to solve the same problem over the phone. Good luck on finding it - just rummage around the settings with eyes peeled.

Well.... if you put brand new one, (not the compatible one) and see the same problem... that's something needs to be cared of by A/S center.

However, if you put in the compatible or refilled cartridge (anther one), still u will c the same e5 error.

E5 errror is something can't be solved....

I replaced the color ink cartridge. Now there is an "E" flashing alternately with a "5". The alarm light is on steadily, and the black ink and color ink lights are flashing. How do I...


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.

Flahing E 5 and lights blinking on black and colored ink


Hi, the E5 means that:
The ink cartridges are
not installed[1401],
or a non-supported ink
cartridge is
installed[1485],
or the ink cartridges are
not installed
properly[1687].


Try with diferrent ink crg., Be sure to use genuine. If that doesnt help, the problem is in printer head, or logic board.

Hope that helped.

My HP deskjet F4180 is displaying and E and the lights next the the ink drips are flashing, i have only just put a new colour cartridge in it. do you know whats wrong


It is possible that the installed cartrige may be defective or spurious. please check once again the authenticity of the spare. Otherwise please remove the cartridge and reinstall if this does not solve, try to clean the head using the maintenance button( refer manual)Other wise you can uninstall and reinstall the software as there could be some loading errror.
I hope this helps. Good day

E5 is "The ink cartridges is not install or a non supported ink"
Probably one from your cartridges is defective.

E5 problem


E5, says the ink cartridges are the wrong type, not properly installed, or not installed at all. You can't refill those without replacing the chip or resetting the chip. Many refilled cartridges just don't work...

E5 error


HI ...

This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

    Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

  2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

  3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

  4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.



    05sj00081_04.jpg
    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)
