Re: Lost all ink
If you get a grinding noise and if the carriage stalls in the center then it is a scanner failure issue.
Removed all the ink cartrigdes and move the carriage too and fro a couple of times and then reinsert the cartridges.
You can try a semifull reset
That is Unplug the power cord from the All-In-One when there is still power in unit and also unplug the power cord from unit, wait for 1Mins.
Then plug power cable directly to wall outlet without surg protector, then before plugging the power cord to the printer press and hold the # and No 6 button in the uint do not release the button unit it gives a message as reset, if the unitturns off the release the keys and turn the power on and try to make a copy.
If it still makes the sound then it is a hardware issue it needs to be replaced.

A firmware update for your model addresses the print quality problem that you're currently experiencing. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark S400 Series Firmware Update. If more than one download is listed for your model, choose the first
download in the list. If it is the wrong firmware level, an error message will
tell you which firmware level is correct. Should the error continue to display even after successfully updating your printer, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance. Your printhead itself might be the cause of the problem.
Do you used ORIGINAL epson cartridges? I used false ones, the yellow one exploded (I'm NOT kidding) inside the printer, and it died. Too, may cause errors on the printer's motherboard, on each cartridge, have a chip who don't metter the ink inside, calculate an extimated value. When you put a false cartridge, the chip may send wrong/corrupted data to the printer system, making it dizzy, and stop working... Epson products have short lifetime, i rarely saw an epson printer go more than 6 years, the most ones die on the first year. Is what i know, good luck.
try to install a new driver from here
otherwise ur error code means
The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly. Install cartridges properly.
so try to clean the cartridge pinout well by using Acetone or something like that also try to clean the pinout of the cartidge mount inside the printer when it's power is off.
You're absolutely right - E5 means that the ink is empty (or that the ink can't be loaded for some other reason, such as an incompatible cartridge or improper installation)
For your reference, here is the complete list of error codes for the MP150 with brief descriptions:
E2 No paper (ASF) E3 Paper jam E4 No ink E5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly E8 Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full E9 The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera-Direct Printing E14 The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong E15 Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown E16 -E19 Failed to scan head alignment sheet E22 Carriage error E23 Paper feed error E24 Purge unit error E25 ASF(cam) sensor error E26 Internal temperature rise error E27 Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full E28 Ink cartridge temperature rise error - E29 EEPROM error E33 Paper feed position error E35 15 USB Host VBUD overcurrent error E37 17 Abnormal motor driver error E40 20 Other hardware error E42 22 Scanner error
I hope this helps - please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

Remove the color ink cartridge then lower the cover of your printer. If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new one (or return the new one). Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge then lower the cover. If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new color cartridge.
Note: My manual indicated that the printer might have detected a short circuit in a cartridge. I returned a month old black cartridge got a new one and my printer is working fine now. Good luck.
What has happened is that there is a "Seal" that sits under the Ink Cartridge when at rest, I suggest that somehow it isn't doing it's job, perhaps it has been dislodged somehow or sometimes they go all hard and don't do the "Soaking Up" of the excess ink. Either that or the ink cartridge's seal is faulty?
