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

had the same problem - would not recognise ink - would not scan - would not print --- phoned up canon help desk - no solutions for ink problem or scanner problem - cannon say printer will require servicing - so the nice man is emailing me return centres -(no idea of cost yet???) will be looking for a replacement 3 in 1 for future use -
