You did not mention the brand and model number of your printer but most likely you have inserted the cartridges 180 out. Try turning them around.You should hear a 'click' as the cartrdge is inserted.

Does not recongnize ink cartridge


Make sure you've removed the protective tape from the cartridges that you inserted into the printer and that the cartridges were installed properly. Are you getting an error message or is the printer just not printing? If you get an error such as Error U041 or U043, the printer may just be low on ink or have a bad ink cartridge.

Hi! Since a few days, I try to remove the E5 message error displayed on the LCD of the printer unsuccessfully. I found this solution piworks solution (start with printer off... etc.)but while I click the...


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 =)

What is de code E4 E5?


Those codes mean the following --

E4 - No ink.
E5
- The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported

Did you just recently change a cartridge? This would be indicative of why you are getting these two
messages.

1/ Check that you removed all protective wrapping from the new cartridge.
2/ If (1) does not clear, then remove the cartridge and with a alochol swab clean the print head pads the
reinstall the cartridge.

E5 is "The ink cartridges is not install or a non supported ink"
Probably one from your cartridges is defective.

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...

E5 error


HI ...

This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

    Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

  2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

  3. 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.)

  4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)
