Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

E5 Problem still persist on Pixma MP150

Despite following tips on this website and on others, I cannot get the E5 error to go away. I even used mptools to reset the counters on the cartridges. It says it does not recognise the black or colour cartridge - yet the black is a new one (I bought it after the refill black & colour caused this problem), and I don't want to waste €25 on a colour one to have the same problem. I have it set up to only print black. So cannot figure why the E5 will not go away.
Anyone fix this before - any suggestions I have found are no good.

thanks

Shaun

There is no repair other than new OEM ink cartridges. In rare cases there are bent pins on the carriage assembly and the carriage must be replaced. People all over are having problems with generic cartridges, and that's why Canon keeps changing the cartridges.

function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in

    Canon MP150 Flashing E5E5E5........


    The E5 error is indeed an error regarding the print cartridges. Are you using original Canon ink. If not then the brand you are using may not be compatible. I would do an eeprom reset and see if that helps. Service manual here, will show you how:

    Error E5


    when the error E5 is ocured it means the COLOR cartridge is either the WRONG cartridge, or you have a balck cartridge in the color cartridges spot. Please verify you have the correct cartridges in the correct locations, and that you may not have installed the black in the colors location. Please let me know if this fixes your problem.
