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 do you get music to save on a new 4gb memory card on a nokia E5 instead of saving in phone memory


Transfer music from a computer
You can use the following methods to transfer music:

• To install Nokia Ovi Player to manage and organize your music files, download
the PC software from www.ovi.com, and follow the instructions.

• To view your device on a computer as a mass memory device where you can
transfer any data files, make the connection with a compatible USB data cable
or Bluetooth connectivity. If you are using a USB data cable, select Mass
storage as the USB connection mode. A compatible memory card must be
inserted in the device.

• To synchronize music with Windows Media Player, connect a compatible USB
data cable, and select PC Suite as the USB connection mode. A compatible
memory card must be inserted in the device.

To change the default USB connection mode, select Menu > Ctrl. panel >
Connectivity > USB and USB connection mode.


I hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FixYa!

My canon MP 145 printer displayed E5. How can I solve my problem?


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 =)

Recently got a cheap compatible replacement ink cartridge for my canon mp160. Did the whole "new ink cartridge" blah blah, even turned the colour level thing off. For some reason now, it's only...


This is called E5 error when you insert refilled cartridge or compatible.....
Printer does not read that particular cartridge.

No solution other than replacing with brand new one.

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 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.

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.
