Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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:
Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.
Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.
Installing ink cartridges:
Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.
<1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.
<2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

E5 is just saying the cartridge is the wrong type, or not installed properly. Your store should exchange a defective cartridge, If the carriage is damaged, you may need a shop repair.

1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press
the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.
The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored.
Some of the new carts reportedly have fuses which blow if the ink gets too low, denying any further refilling.
To use refills, you will probably have to turn off your Status Monitor.
Go to your printer's Maintenance section.

press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.

Yo tambien tengo una canon pixma mp160 y me da el mismo error por culpa de los cartuchos. La solucion simple y llanamente pasaría por comprar cartuchos nuevos originales, pero a veces te sigue dando el mismo problema incluso con ellos. Asi pues, lo que yo recomendaría es no comprar esta impresora.
Ah! se me olvidaba, que piden que escriba en ingles, porque dicen que "esto es america", no amigos, esto no es america, esto es internet. El mundo globalizado, irse acostumbrando a usar mas de un idioma.
