    Hi, I have the same problem. I ran out of color ink, so I took the color cartridge out... and now I'm getting error 5 and can't even print black and white although the black cartridge is full.

    Can anyone please help on this. I don't want to buy a color cartridge for black and white printing and scanning!!!

(printer cannot recognize ink cartridge colour or black or both )this is the problem

ok ink cartridges only have a certain life a bit like a light bulb they can burn out at any time for no reason usually just after you have had them filled

the cartridges can last six days weeks or months its pot luck the trick is to not let them run too dry if possible before refilling

do not leave them empty for too long because when they refill the cartridges the machine as to scrub the gold coloured electrodes on the front harder of the cartridges and this can cause the cartridges to blow after a short while

IF E5 SHOWS THEN SORRY BUT YOU NEED TO BUY A NEW CARTRIDGE OR CARTRIDGES

Thanx for your help. I have one more day to give back the printer to the store, and I'll do it. Everywhere I looked for a solution for putting back the refilled cartridges, there was no proper solution to do so. And I refuse to buy cartridges half 'a price of a printer...

Unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has.

Power on the printer. Open the printer and take out the Dell Series 5 Black cartridge. make sure all the tape is off the cartridge and put the cartridge back in. Now do the same for the Dell Series 5 color cartridge.

Please unplug the printer from the wall. Now remove the power brick from the back of the printer for 60 seconds. Now plug everything back in. This will reset any error messages the printer has. Now open the printer with the power on and the cartridges should go to the center to be replaced. Take out both Dell Series 5 ink cartridges and make sure the tape is off the cartridges and insert both back in and make sure the seat properly and latch. Close the printer and it should print an alignment page. If you still get the error message, please read bleow.

My printer no longer prints black,the colors print ok,but are a little light.Idid everything the maintenance screen told me to doI still can't get the black to print.I used new ink cartridges too.


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

What you want to do to get your printer working again is to clean the ink heads using the maintenance program that came with your printer.

You may clean both the colour and the black ink cartridges. You may need to do this a few times, print a test page between each cleaning cycle. This will get the ink to flow through the printer system. Also leave the printer on for a while so the ink can settle. Ensure that you use original ink cartridges from Kodak as generic cartridges give endless problems.
Make sure they are compatible with your make of printer.

Thanking you kindly

Compatibility of Ink cartidge.


The MP600 does not use the 40 or 41 cartridges, it uses individual color (and black) ink tanks. But other models (MP190, MP460, MP470, etc) do use these cartridges. The error message you are receiving indicates that the printer does not recognize the cartridge you installed as a valid black ink cartridge. This can mean that either the cartridge is faulty, or that the printer has a problem.
I would suggest trying another new cartridge, and if you still get the same error, to contact Canon for support options if the unit is still in warranty.

Pixma 4200 compatible ink cartridge problem help


The ink detection is a critical function of the printer.

Ink actually acts as a lubricant for the heads, and running (Printing) without ink is equavalent to driving a car without oil.

I.E. It will seize eventually....

Hopefully you didn't print much without the ink, and your heads are still in good shape...

Here is a chip reset procedure....

With the original chip now attached to the compatible cartridge (you may need double sided tape to get the chip to stick well to the cartridge), and with the cartridge now in the printer, Press and hold the Reset/OK Button for 5 seconds to reset the chips.
  1. The "Ink Low" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 1 below)
  2. Continue to print until the "ink has run out" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 2 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print.
  3. The "Ink Low" dialog box may reappear, if so repeat the first 2 steps
  4. Then the "once empty" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 3 Below) Click "Yes" to continue to print
  5. The "Not Liable" dialog box will pop up (similar to photo 4 below). Click "Yes" to continue to print
  6. Continue to print until the "remaining level of ink" dialog box pops up (similar to photo 5 Below) Click "OK" to continue to print
  7. Another dialog box will pop up with the "press and hold the Resume" or "press and hold the Paper Feed" button (similar to photo 6). Press and hold the "STOP/RESET" button (for Canon MP Series) or "PAPER FEED" button (for Canon IP Series) for 5 seconds. DO NOT Click "Back" or "Cancel Printing"
  8. The "Ink Monitor" dialog box will appear and the printer will continue to print. (similar to photo 7) In the event that that the "press and hold the Resume " dialog box pops up again, Press and hold the Paper Feed Button or Stop/Reset Button for 5 seconds

Nothing wrong with the printer. The rubbish cartridge you bought and replace it with one that works. Approx 30% of most compatible/refilled cartridges DO NOT WORK.

Not only that but they WILL block your print head nozzles eventually. Ever wonder why Epson do NOT make any flushing cartridges but almost every compatible "maker" does??

99% sure the cart is at fault. return it to where you bought it and get a swap.
