    Exactly the same problem with the E5 error precluding the pritner from printing.

  • sallyride Jul 05, 2008

    Getting E5 error code. Reinstalled 3 times to no avail. Cartridges are half-full. Working good the day before. Now, all of a sudden: E-5 error.

    Why would an off-brand cartridge not be compatible.? Makes no sense!

    Is this something that Canon builds into their printers, so that people who

    are looking to save a few bucks are doomed to buy their brand?

    the display alternately flashes E 1 5

    I am experiencing the same problem and my cartridges are original Canon. There must be a logical solution for such a courious case.

  • komiranikoma May 24, 2009

    No printing, no scaning. Printer can do nothing, just show me error code e5 on LCD.

Yo tambien tengo una canon pixma mp160 y me da el mismo error por culpa de los cartuchos. La solucion simple y llanamente pasaría por comprar cartuchos nuevos originales, pero a veces te sigue dando el mismo problema incluso con ellos. Asi pues, lo que yo recomendaría es no comprar esta impresora.

Ah! se me olvidaba, que piden que escriba en ingles, porque dicen que "esto es america", no amigos, esto no es america, esto es internet. El mundo globalizado, irse acostumbrando a usar mas de un idioma.

I kept getting an E5 error. So I called Canon Tech.
They suggested I buy Canon Ink only and reinstall........
BINGO ! ... Problem solved. MP 160 will not accept generic ink.

What is error e5 in mp 198 printer


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

  • In certain models of Canon Pixma printers such as the Canon MP160 and Canon MP150, you may receive an E5 error when trying to print. In this state, you will not be able to use any of the functions of your printer. The error itself is an ink cartridge error. It may be that you are using generic or off-brand ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma printer. Canon Pixma printers do not work with other brands of print cartridges; invest in Canon brand ink cartridges and this should take care of your problem.
