    My e5 was cleared by taking both carts out and reinserting them. Much less work than cleaning.

The unplugging procedure is called hard reset, and is useful only when there is no real problem on the printer.
Error E5 means a problem with cartridge chipset, here follows reset procedure, it does not always work:

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. If you just bought cartridges tell the seller they are faulty and ask an original set of cartridges as replacement.

Printer show E5 error ... people from canon put chip in cartridge, and depend of time or number of printings, chip just send to other electronic on printer board that "cartridge is bad", or incompatible" - error E 5 (blinking).

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.

    Error code E5 on LCD Canon Pixma MP160


    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.
