I think you may just need to live with this. That is, I don't have a solution, but printing is not affected. The guy who refills my cartridges says it is because the Pixma only recognises new Canon filled cartridges once. After that, the printer has no way of recognising them. Annoying, I know. Love the 150, but it throws up mysterios messages at times. Often, turning the printer off, waiting 60 seconds and turning it back on will do the trick. If this fails (more annoying), shutting down the computer and the priinter and starting again can get the printer working again.
Good luck

Colored refill ink cannot be recognized

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.

I refilled my black cartridge of Pixma iP 1600. I have done it 3 times before and it worked perfectly until yesterday. Now when I refilled it the 4th time, the yellow LED blinks 5 times and then the green...

The manual for the PIXMA iP1600 says the following concerning the 5 blinks:

The ink cartridges are not properly installed, or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed (the ink cartridge EEPROM data is abnormal). Install the ink cartridges properly. Or, confirm that the supported ink cartridges are installed.

If you haven't already I would take a look at the electrical contacts on the cartridge to make sure they are clean (free of dust and ink) and then reinstall them in the printer. If the printer gives the same error, it's time to buy a new cartridge. 3 refills from a cartridge is not bad at all.

Hope this helps,

Steve

I use refilled cartridges. Okay, the printer says ink low, but it does that all the time. I ignore it. However, yesterday it printed not a problem, today it gives me code 5. Does anyone have a real solution or should I throw the printer away?

Printer won't recognize ink cartridge

you can try by cleaning the copper contacts on the cart .. and if it works fine with the old cart i.e if it doesnt gives any error with the old ones then possibly the problem might be with the new cart..

Printer fail to recognize the ink cartridge

You need to wait longer for the printer to recognize the ink cartridge, but first clear all cartridge error messages on the printer.
