I have a Canon PIXMA MP160 I refilled the ink cartridges and now get the E5 errors. I tried the common fixes and so far nothing has worked. Do you know a fix besides buying a new ink cartridge?

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.

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!!!!

Every time i turn my printer on it flashes E, 5... and the alarm button is lit. i installed brand new 40 black and 41 color canon ink cartridges, and the error still isn't fixed


r u sure new cartridge is not refilled one?

E5 error means cartridges are not readable.

When you refill your canon cartridge, especially for color one, it happens. (after 4~5 times of refills)

So you have to replace the cartridge with brand new one.

(for your additional reference, it doesn't happen to black cartridge)

So at least you can refill black...

Printer continually says put in cartridge even though I have (twice). I have checked over and over that the cartridge is firmly installed. Is there a sensor somewhere which needs cleaning or resetting?


Did you used refilled cartridge?

Sometimes for Canon printer, when u used refilled cartridges, they are not readable.
