Hi,
Either ink tank is not installed properly or the function for detecting the ink level is disabled.

  • Make sure that you install ink cartridges at correct position as indicated by the label on the print head holder. Press PUSH mark until ink tank click into the place.
  • Make sure Orange protective cap has been removed from the bottom of the ink cartridge.
I hope this will solve your problem

Thanks for using fixya
Good luck and have a nice day.

Look inside the printer where you installed the cartridge. Clean the metal contacts on cartridge and the corresponding contacts in the printer. Do this with cue tips dipped in rubbing alcohol. Then reinsert cartridge and then turn off printer. Wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.

I replaced the color ink cartridge. Now there is an "E" flashing alternately with a "5". The alarm light is on steadily, and the black ink and color ink lights are flashing. How do I...


E5 is a Cartridge cannot be recognized error.
Reinstalling the cartridge could clear the alarm.
If this does not work,
Removed both ink cartridges.
Turn off printer and unplug fron electrical outlet.
Wait at least 5 minutes.
This will let the printer reset itself.
Plug printer back in and turn on.
Printer will cycle and an E5 will appear.
Installed back ink cartridges.

Replaced cartridge (black) but low-ink light on printer still flashing and printer won't print


Have you reset the printer? If not, follow the instructions;
Remove the cartridges, disconnect the usb, switch off, unplug the power chord, leave it off for few minutes. Again switch it On without the cartridges installed and without usb cable connected to it, press the power button several times while it boots up, and leave it on for few minutes, again shut it down using the power button and install the cartridges, connect the usb cable and restart your printer. This will fix your problem if there isn't internal/system failure/faulty.

Good luck.

Put in new ink cartridges and ink light still on


Shut if off for 10 minutes, then turn back on.

If still blinking, then go thru your printing utility, and see what steps they want you to follow. ie:
does it say, need new ink? etc.

Good Luck

Printer error requests that a full ink tank is empty.


You can try cleaning the electrical contacts in the printer and on the cartridge with isopropyl alcohol followed by water to see if that fixes it. Then you can try removing all your cartridges, turning the printer off, unplugging it, waiting a few minutes, plugging it back in, turning it on, and waiting for the printer to recognize there are no cartridges installed before you reinstall the cartridges. Otherwise you may have damaged the chip on the cartridge with static electricity when installing it. If this is a new cartridge I would return it to the store you purchased it from and ask for a replacement.
