Re: printer won't work, note reads thInk well asborer...
The waste ink absorbers are a couple of pads at the bottom of the printer. Contact Canon (or a service center) if you want to buy a replacement (not all manufacturers sell them). It can be hard to reach the pads but give it a shot. If you are reusing the pads, rinse them with running water until it runs clean. Then once they are dry, reinstall them and put the printer back together.
Then you need to reset the printer waste ink counter: With the printer connected to power but not on, press the Power button while holding the Stop/Reset button. When the power light is lit, continue to hold the Power button and press the Stop/Reset twice. Release both button (in any order). The printer will now enter the service mode. When the green LEDs are lit, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times to get to the Waste ink counter reset. Reset this value. Then press the power button (saves the setting) and then restart the printer.

Installing ink cartridges:
Make sure that the machine is turned on, lift the
Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) with both hands, then pull the Scanning
Unit Support (A) down into place.Take out a new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of the arrow.Note: - Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot*
black cartridge and one color cartridge must be installed in the
machine in order for the printer to operate. It does not matter if the
capacities (Standard or High) do not match.
Push up on the front of the
cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when
the cartridge is locked in place.)Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.OR
<1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.
<2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.
Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).
Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
You can only use the black ink cartridge without the color ink. But no need to replace them in your printer.
When you print just choose black and white for the printed text must be black not colored. But if you still received such notification...just try to replace the color ink cartridge to continue printing
As per my experience. printer with exclusive black ink alone will damage the printer easily due to unbalance printing of ink
Follow these steps to check the ink levels:
>Click Start .
>Click Printers and Faxes .
>Right-click the icon for your printer , and then click Printing Preferences .
>Click the Features tab.
>Click the Printer Services button. The Toolbox window opens.
>Click the Estimated Ink Levels tab. A window opens that indicates the estimated ink level of each cartridge.
NOTE:Depending on the printer, the estimated ink level indicators can vary in appearance.
>If the ink level indicators show that a cartridge is low or empty, replace the cartridge.
E5 means your cartridge error. May I know are you using original ink cartridge or yours has been modified before?
I assume you to refill your ink cartridge before because E5 error won't appear after replacing new cartridge.
So, you need to take out both of your ink cartridge and then use a clean cloth to wipe them. After that, slowly put in back into the printer. If the error is still there after wiping it, try to do it till the error is gone.
I had tested this way with my own printer and it works again without needed to buy a new ink cartridge.
All the best and good luck =)
sounds like you have a hpp printer......continue to use the ink until it wont print...odds are you purchased a defective cartridge....on a side note buy a kodak printer.....the ink is under $20 to replace...and kodak will back their printers more so than most other companies....
What I would do is check your maunal to see what cartridge you need for your printer and purchase this cartridge. If you have not need color cartridges before than you wont need them now. Just make sure you inserted the right ink cartridge for your printer
