Re: Canon pixma mp150 e5 error

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 -

You should check the ink level.
Open the [Printer Properties] dialog box. Click the [Maintenance] tab and click [View Printer Status].

If the "?" mark appears then you have to disable the low ink warning. If something else appears please let me know.

The reset procedure is this:
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 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 on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
orange and green, starting with orange.)

note: press 3 times for EEPROM reset

The number of the Reset
button pressing
LED Function Remarks
0 time Green Power off
1 time Orange Service pattern print
2 times Green EEPROM print
3 times Orange EEPROM reset
4 times Green Waste ink counter reset

5) Turn off the printer.( it must be turn off)
then turn it on again.

I have the black cartridge re-filled and have tried installing it a couple of times and I still get the E5 message. Any advice?

Canon refills are notoriously finicky. Try an original, or another refill. The one you have may be electrically failing.

Que es el error 5400

Sorry, can't be solvable.. for e5 error.

If you refill your color cartridge that's what it happens.

For Canon, if you refill 4~5 times... (only apply to color), your cartirdge is not readable.

The only solution would be replace your cartridge with new one.

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.

    make sure you removed the orange tape from the cartridge.
    usualy E5 is when the color cartridge is faulty but if the orange tape is on the cartridge it will show E5.
    if you removed the orange tape an it still shows E5 go with the cartridge to the store where you purcess it for excange.

    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...

    My canon pixma mp150 is showing error 5?

    E5 is saying that ink is not installed, generic cartridges, or not installed properly, If all those are good you could have a defective carriage assembly and need shop work.
