    error e5 appears on the panel. i tried to reinstall the cartridge, but it doesn't work.

  • mat1 Nov 22, 2007

    I started having my cartridges refilled at a professional ink station. Then for some very important work of my wife's, I bought a Canon cartridge again for highest quality printing. We went through one cartridge (PhD to print!), which worked fine. When I put another new Canon cartridge in, it suddenly started refusing to recognise either cartridge (new Canon black ink and old refilled cartridge). Now I can't do anything, not even scan--I can only watch the error code E5 blinking stupidly on the display at me.
    Is there at least some way I could get it to scan?

Isnt e5 error meaning the cartridge has been previously used before?? Best bet is to hold in both the colour and black copy buttons for about 5 - 10 seconds and this should allow you to print again. If you do not have a copier/scanner, hold in the resume button. (triangle within a circle).

    Sorry actually the only thing you could try doing with this is to try and clean the contacts of the cartridge itself using a rubber eraser and also those inside the printer, using cotton buds and isopropyl alcohol (you could also use metho or water). If this doesnt fix it then you need to replace the cartridge concerned. The colour cartridges have had high failure rates for refilling, after they have been reinstalled and used for a short period the electronics tends to die. Wasnt always a problem and just suddenly became an issue.

My canon MP 145 printer displayed E5. How can I solve my problem?


E5 means your cartridge error. May I know are you using original ink cartridge or yours has been modified before?
I assume you to refill your ink cartridge before because E5 error won't appear after replacing new cartridge.
So, you need to take out both of your ink cartridge and then use a clean cloth to wipe them. After that, slowly put in back into the printer. If the error is still there after wiping it, try to do it till the error is gone.
I had tested this way with my own printer and it works again without needed to buy a new ink cartridge.
All the best and good luck =)

How to error e5 how to go to service mode


Hum....e5 error.

The truth is...there is no solution for e5 error.
U may see some solutions through web, however, non of them works..

The only way you can get out of e5 error, replace with new cartridge..
or...
prevent it...before you face it!!

How?
Whenever you take out the cartridge from printer, make sure unplug the power code first..
and then take and refill or whatever...

And then when you put it back....do it when power code is unplugged as well.

Personally, I refilled and used CL831 more than 8 times..

If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Colored refill ink cannot be recognized


It is called e5 error.
For Canon cartridges, after 4~5 refills, the color cartridge cannot be recognized by printer.

In this case...there is no solution so far...just replace with new cartridge.. that's it.
(To avoid e5 error, you need to make sure "plug out" the power, before take out your cartridge for refill. Yes... "plug out" the power cords!!!!

What is error e5 in mp 198 printer


E5 - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed properly..

  • 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.

    Whats the meaning of error in canon e5 error?


    "E5: The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. / The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.

    The ink cartridge may not be installed properly, or an unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.
    Install a recommended ink cartridge.

    Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing.
    If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur."

    I use refilled cartridges. Okay, the printer says ink low, but it does that all the time. I ignore it. However, yesterday it printed not a problem, today it gives me code 5. Does anyone have a real solution or should I throw the printer away?

    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...
