I have Canon PIXMA MP 510 bought on august 21 2007.
My printer will not print and I just cannot see why. There is plenty of ink, it is connected, it has been printing up until now.
When I try to print there is a little window that opens when I R. click on the Printer icon and it says: LOOKING FOR PRINTER MP 510.

E5 - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink
cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed
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.
Hello , i have the same problem but vice versa. i bought my printer with the 210 and 211 cartridge and i bought now the 510 and 511 and the printer wont recognize them . all i know is that my printer is specially made for canada thats why it works only with 210 and 211 , so urs must be european because 510 and 511 are the cartridges for the european version of this printer . i've tried so hard to trick the printer so accept this cartridges but its not working . did u find a solution in the mean time ? i could really use some advice
First of all reste your printer: Turn off the printer, press and hold the red button 10-15 sec, if is not gonna work take a look at your cable it can be a little unpluged or somnt, if is not buy another cable. Good Luck
