I would imagine the error message is asking you to hold down the reset button of your printer for 5 seconds due to a low ink estimate with these refilled cartridges. If this is the case the STOP/RESET/RESUME button is represented by an upside-down triangle in a circle and is normally red or grey.
More information on this error message can be found here.
It is called e5 error.
For Canon cartridges, after 4~5 refills, the color cartridge cannot be recognized by printer.
In this case...there is no solution so far...just replace with new cartridge.. that's it.
(To avoid e5 error, you need to make sure "plug out" the power, before take out your cartridge for refill. Yes... "plug out" the power cords!!!!
If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK". Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good. For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video. And will see how easy ink refill can be done.
Sometime, if you put refilled cartridge, you may see some error such as E5 (cartridge is not readable) If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".

E5 means your cartridge error. May I know are you using original ink cartridge or yours has been modified before?
I assume you to refill your ink cartridge before because E5 error won't appear after replacing new cartridge.
So, you need to take out both of your ink cartridge and then use a clean cloth to wipe them. After that, slowly put in back into the printer. If the error is still there after wiping it, try to do it till the error is gone.
I had tested this way with my own printer and it works again without needed to buy a new ink cartridge.
All the best and good luck =)
When you refill your canon cartridge, especially for color one, it happens. (after 4~5 times of refills)
So you have to replace the cartridge with brand new one.
(for your additional reference, it doesn't happen to black cartridge)
So at least you can refill black...
If you would like to save money, try nozzle injection refill kit by ROADINK. Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good. For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video. And will see how easy ink refill can be done.">
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...
Yes you could refill those types of cartridges, but i would not suggest it! Unoriginal ink will cause loss of quality and also if not sealed correctly it could spill allover the printer and will certainly cause damage.
