Whats the meaning of error in canon e5 error?


"E5: The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. / The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.

The ink cartridge may not be installed properly, or an unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.
Install a recommended ink cartridge.

Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing.
If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur."

What is e5 error


E5 error code occurs 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.

Error code E5 on LCD Canon Pixma MP160


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.

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.
