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

1 Answer

Error E5 Thank you for your reply CowboysFanZ. We have checked and the cartidges are in the correct position. Also, the two cartridges currently in there are the same that were in the printer before we run the cleaning function H. The error message came up after that. Do you have any further suggestion? Many thanks

According to Cannon, the E5 error is only caused by a cartridge that is either in the wrong location or not seated correctly. So if you have taken out and put back the cartridges and they are seated properly I'm not sure where we could go from there.
I know this is a long shot, but turn off the printer, take out ALL the cartridges and turn the printer back on. Then power it off, install the NEW cartridges and power it back on again and see if that will reset it. Short of that my only suggestion is to contact cannon, but I have and they are the ones telling me the cartridges are in the wrong location. Lets try resetting it and see what happens. //D

E5 error how to rectify the error on the printer


I have an MP160 which is now over 7 years old and still going strong. I refill my own cartridges and sometimes get the E5 error after refitting a cartridge. More often than not this fix works for me.
With both cartidges fitted and the printer turned on, open the printer top and wait for the cartridge carrier to move left then right. Immediately it begins to move to the right, quickly push the carrier with your finger as far to the right as it will go and close the top. If you hesitate too long and the carrier starts its travel to the far left, close the top and wait until the whirring noises stop and try again. That usually clears the E5 error.
If it doesn't, open the top, wait for the carrier to park in left position and remove and replace both cartridges. After refitting, give each cartridge a gentle wiggle to help ensure that all the electical contacts are properly seated in the carrier, then close the top.
Note that if the cartridge is faulty, in my experience the E5 cannot be eliminated.

I changed my catrige but its showing the error E5


I use refilled cartridges. Okay, the printer says ink low, but it does that all the time. I ignore it. However, yesterday it printed not a problem, today it gives me code 5. Does anyone have a real solution or should I throw the printer away?

How to reset the Canon MX850 Printer, after ink change and counter reset? After I had changed ink cartidge and reset ink counter, I was able to print without problem. But this was only for a few days. ...


One way is to hold the 'Stop/Reset' button for at least 5 seconds until the display shows a new message about ignoring the current ink condition. This does not reset the chip but it does allow you to continue printing with the refilled ink tanks.
