Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Error E5 Printer was not printing any yellow, even though the cartridge is new. Tried to run function H to clean the heads. Since then, the printer is coming up with error E5, which won't go away. The computer tells me that neither cartridges (both Canon ones) are right for this printer. Any suggestion?

When the error E5 is ocured it means the COLOR cartridge is either the WRONG cartridge, or you have a balck cartridge in the color cartridges spot. Please verify you have the correct cartridges in the correct locations, and that you may not have installed the black in the colors location. Please let me know if this fixes your problem. Thanks //D

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.

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.

E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly.

1. try to take out colour ink and then put in again to see ok or no

2.try to install new cartridge to see ok or no

3.try cleaning head just go to printer preferences go to find services and click clean head.

4.if this all can't is better you send you printer to authorized canon to check you printer is print head problem or no....

Error E5 means a problem with cartridge chipset, here follows reset procedure, it does not always work:

Error E5 is a problem with cartridge ink counter. This happens when you use refilled or not original crtridges.
Try removing cartridges and putting them back in place.

Here is the whole service procedure for Pixma, you must use this to reset the ink counter:

1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding
the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a
service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
orange and green, starting with orange.)
The number of the Reset
button pressing
LED Function Remarks
0 time Green Power off
1 time Orange Service pattern print
2 times Green EEPROM print
3 times Orange EEPROM reset
4 times Green Waste ink counter reset See waste ink counter reset
procedures below.
5 times Orange Destination setting See Destination setting
procedures below.
6 times Green Print head deep cleaning
11 times Orange Button / LCD checking
12 or more times Returns to a menu selection

If it does not work you will need to buy a new set of cartridges, possibly original ones. If you just bought cartridges tell the seller they are faulty and ask an original set of cartridges as replacement

My printer is not printing the colour yellow even though the cartidge is full and new


If you have run the nozzle cleaning utility, and you are not getting any yellow output, the cartridge is most likely defective. This also occurs if you are not using OEM ink cartridges.

I replaced both ink cartridges for the printer, won' print.


Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models.  I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem.  Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
kind regards

My printer won't print yellow even when I replace the cartridge.


Desperate measures!

I have a PIXMA MP 750 and months ago my yellow ink stopped printing. I was only able to use the printer for black and white printing. Every once in awhile I would try multiple deep cleans, new ink cartridges, etc. etc. I talked to the very unhelpful folks at Canon who suggested a new print head ($70), but they couldn't guarantee this would actually work. They really thought it would be best just to buy a new printer.

Although I was feeling bad about adding yet another cheap printer to the landfill I'd pretty much decided to get a new printer. As a last resort I decided to use a suggestion I came across (at pcuser.com) to run hot water through the print head. It was easy to remove the print head (check your manual). I propped the head up in my dish drainer and ran hot water straight from the tap first through the end with the little circular parts and then through the end with the metal strips. I eventually used boiling water from the kettle.

As I poured water through one end I started to see yellow ink coming though the other end so I figured the ink had dried in the head. I kept pouring water through (from both ends) until the water ran clear. I dried the print head, put it back in with the cartridges and VOILA! after MONTHS without yellow ink it's working beautifully again!

If you've tried everything else and feel desperate enough to buy a new printer you might want to try this and report back.

No Yellow Or Cyan Ink


Hi do the following and hopefully it will help you. If it doesn't then you have a fault carriage or main PCB.

  • Remove ink Cartridge
  • With a soft cloth wipe clean the gold contacts on the carriage unit and the same on the ink cartridge
  • reinstall the ink cartridge
  • Click start
  • Select printers and faxes
  • Right hand click on the printer icon
  • Select Properties
  • Click on Services Tab
  • Click on clean print heads
  • Then click on Prime.
Hopefully this will work

Thanks J
