Hello

You can try this...

First take a smooth cloth or cotton
take a cleaning liquid like spirit, thinner etc., (note - not cleaners)
clean the golden chip with out giving much presser
in the same way clean the other side of the printer also
now test it

Hope this can steer you in the right direction.

Kind regards
Andrea

Whats the meaning of error in canon e5 error?


"E5: The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. / The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.

The ink cartridge may not be installed properly, or an unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.
Install a recommended ink cartridge.

Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing.
If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur."

E5 problem


E5, says the ink cartridges are the wrong type, not properly installed, or not installed at all. You can't refill those without replacing the chip or resetting the chip. Many refilled cartridges just don't work...

Canon MP210 getting E5 message with PG-50


Sadly Canon cripple many of their printers so that they will not accept the high yield cartridges such as the 50 & 51. As a result your printer the MP210 will only accept the 37 or 38 cartridges which are only half filled, or the 40 and 41 which are fairly full, but don't contain as much as the 50 & 51. All I can suggest is that you could try to sell the 50 on eBay, and send a strongly worded email to Canon.
