Need to reset error code 5 for my pixma MP250


Humm..... it seems like you are mentioning about e5 error here.

Well simply, there is no solution for it right now.

As for the solution, you need to replace the cartridge with brand new one.

You may try to wiping out the circuit part with soft tissue or paper towel and put the cartridge back.

But most likely, it may not work.. if it works... good.

For next time, when you eject the cartridge printer, make sure "unplug the power cord first" prior to eject the cartridge.
And you can refill your cartridge or...do something got to be done...

And when you put it back to cartridge.... insert the cartridge first and plug back the power cord.

For e5 error, it all has to do with preventing!!! so be carful next time...

And for next refill, try this way;

it's much easier than needle and syringe method.... no drill neccessary!!!

My canon MP 145 printer displayed E5. How can I solve my problem?


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 =)

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!!!!

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.
It's called E5 error.

In this case, you need to replace the cartridge with new one.
