Hello, Anita.

E5 is usually referring to a cartridge problem.

First, clean the contacts:

(1) Open the printer
(2) Remove the color ink cartridges from the print head.
(3) Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water to thoroughly clean the print head.
(4) Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab.
(5) Once finished, allow to dry and replace the cartridges
(6) Try to print something now

Your cartridge could be faulty and need replacement.

Hope this helps.

open the top cover and lift the latch on the printheads. now take out both the printheads and clean the contact points with a dry paper towel and also clean the contact points on the printer if its possible to reach them .

if the message still remains there check which printhead is it talking about and replace it.
most printheads have two years warranty so check the expiration date and call the manufacturer to get a replacement.

Paperport selection on printer, but item does not print to paperport

Hi Try this solution: Go to your printers and faxes control panel and right mouse on say the paperport colour image printer. Now select the Paperport tab and you will find where the images are being sent! Probably in the bowls of documents and settings; all users bla bla. Change this to where you want them to go. I changed mine to drop into the MyPaperPort Documents folder for ease of use.Do the same for the black and white printer if you like.
