Try first unplugging the printer from power cable for two minutes, sometimes this clear the error.

    Error E5 is a problem with cartridge ink counter. This happens when you use refilled or not original crtridges.
    Try removing cartridges and putting them back in place.

    Here is the whole service procedure for Pixma, you must use this to reset the ink counter:

    1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding
    the Stop/ Reset button.
    2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
    3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a
    service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
    4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
    function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
    orange and green, starting with orange.)
    The number of the Reset
    button pressing
    LED Function Remarks
    0 time Green Power off
    1 time Orange Service pattern print
    2 times Green EEPROM print
    3 times Orange EEPROM reset
    4 times Green Waste ink counter reset See waste ink counter reset
    procedures below.
    5 times Orange Destination setting See Destination setting
    procedures below.
    6 times Green Print head deep cleaning
    11 times Orange Button / LCD checking
    12 or more times Returns to a menu selection

    If it does not work you will need to buy a new set of cartridges, possibly original ones. Pixma cartridges have a built in chipset and you often get in trouble with refilled or non original cartridges.

How to error e5 how to go to service mode


Hum....e5 error.

The truth is...there is no solution for e5 error.
U may see some solutions through web, however, non of them works..

The only way you can get out of e5 error, replace with new cartridge..
or...
prevent it...before you face it!!

How?
Whenever you take out the cartridge from printer, make sure unplug the power code first..
and then take and refill or whatever...

And then when you put it back....do it when power code is unplugged as well.

Personally, I refilled and used CL831 more than 8 times..

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.

My printer is reading error E5... what does this mean?


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 =)

I have a Canon MP460 printer and its telling me that it doesn't recognize my ink cartridge. I have even brought new ones but still tells me that it don't recognize ink cartridge. I have cleaned contacts...


U must be using PG40, CL41...

Well.... if you put brand new one, (not the compatible one) and see the same problem... that's something needs to be cared of by A/S center.

However, if you put in the compatible or refilled cartridge (anther one), still u will c the same e5 error.

E5 errror is something can't be solved....

I just installed a new CL41 Color ink cartridge into my Canon Pixma mp210, and it does not recognize it. It keeps saying the printer is empty, or displaying Error Code E5. ANother thing is when I go to see...


maybe it have the ink level chip which can be resetted by removing the cartridge and oning and offing the printer for 5 times within 10 minutes coz it saves data of a cartridge upto 5 use before only.. and 6th time insert it.

Instal new ink and error E5 appears. everything I did right


This is an error athat shows that the FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be the compatible with this machine. the cartridge may be faulty or if it is a compatible type that you have not used before it may have adefective chip and you will need to Install the appropriate FINE Cartridge. If lines are misaligned or the resulting output is not satisfactory, carry out the FINE Cartridge Alignment

E5 mp145


E5 is "The ink cartridges is not install or a non supported ink"
Probably one from your cartridges is defective.

E5 error


HI ...

This error comes in when the cartridge is not installed correct ... I would suggest you remove and then re-install the cartridge using the below steps:

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

    Note: Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

  2. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot

  3. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

  4. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.



    05sj00081_04.jpg
    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  5. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  6. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.
Please vote if this helps ... Cheers :)
