PrinterHP Printer Error Code 5

Your Canon printer uses a series of golden colour contacts on the front of the cartridge as the only point of contact with the cartridge. If these contacts are obscured by dirt, ink or natural oils from your hands this can cause this message to occur, it may even be that the contacts have become damaged (visibly or otherwise) while the cartridge was being handled.

Whatever the case I would recommend running though the basic troubleshooting below in an attempt to resolve the issue.

How do I clear this message?

Assuming that the contacts have not become damaged or dead electronically you can normally bypass this message by cleaning the contacts mentioned previously. I would recommend following the steps below:

  1. Remove the cartridge from the printer.
  2. Switch the printer off using buttons on the body of the printer. DO NOT turn it off at the plug.
  3. Double check the label of the cartridge to ensure the correct cartridge is being installed for your printer.
  4. Wipe down the contacts on the front of the cartridge using a piece of kitchen tissue or another not fibrous tissue.
  5. Press the power button of the printer to turn it back on.
  6. Reinstall the cartridge, ensuring the cartridge is returned to the correct black/colour section of the cradle.

With any luck the cartridge will now be recognised by your printer and you will be able to carry on printing. if however one of the E04, E05, E14 or E15 “The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized” messages remain it is likely that the cartridge is damaged/defective. Sadly in this instance the only option that remains is to replace the cartridge, preferably one produced by another party or from another batch.

If you have experienced this issue with multiple cartridges it may be that the corresponding contacts inside the printer have become obscured or even damaged. Thankfully these contacts can be easily accessed by removing the cartridge from the printer and can also be cleaned using the same kind of tissue. These contacts can be pointed in some printers so take care not to leave behind pieces of tissue when cleaning.

What Canon printers/cartridges will this help with?

The E04, E05, E14 and E15 error messages are relevant for a hugh variety of Canon inkjet printers including those printers that are compatible with the Canon PG-37, CL-38, PG-40, CL-41, PG-50 and CL51 range of ink cartridges. These printers include the Canon Fax JX200, MultiPass 450, MultiPass MP150, MultiPass MP160, MultiPass MP170, Pixma iP1200, Pixma iP1300, Pixma iP1600, Pixma iP1700, Pixma iP1800, Pixma iP1900, Pixma iP2200, Pixma iP2400, Pixma iP2500, Pixma iP2600, Pixma MP140, Pixma MP150, Pixma MP160, Pixma MP170, Pixma MP180, Pixma MP190, Pixma MP210, Pixma MP220, Pixma MP450, Pixma MP460, Pixma MP470, Pixma MX300 and Pixma MX310. Which of these six possible cartridges your printer takes will depend entirely upon the model of your printer.

Along with the printer models mentioned above the cleaning of the contacts can help the PG-510, CL-511, PG-512 and CL-513 range of ink cartridges be accepted by a printer. The following printers are all compatible with these black and colour cartridges, the Canon Pixma iP2700, Pixma iP2702, Pixma MP230, Pixma MP240, Pixma MP250, Pixma MP252, Pixma MP260, Pixma MP270, Pixma MP272, Pixma MP280, Pixma MP282, Pixma MP330, Pixma MP480, Pixma MP490, Pixma MP492, Pixma MP495, Pixma MP499, Pixma MX320, Pixma MX330, Pixma MX340, Pixma MX350, Pixma MX410 and Pixma MX420.

You can even use the above advice to clear the E04, E05, E14 and E15 errors with the Canon Pixma MG2150, Pixma MG2250, Pixma MG3150, Pixma MG3155, Pixma MG3250, Pixma MG3550, Pixma MG4150, Pixma MG4250, Pixma MX375, Pixma MX395, Pixma MX435, Pixma MX455, Pixma MX515 and Pixma MX525. These printers take the relatively new Canon PG-540, Cl-541, PG-540XL and CL-541XL ink cartridges.

I hope this has resolved the issue you were experiencing. If however you have any further questions please let us know in the comments.

How to fix the Canon printer E5 error message

Updated: 01/05/2018 by Computer Hope

Canon printer

Although printer errors can differ by model number, the E5 printer error for Canon printers refers to a problem with an ink cartridge. Possible causes of the error include:

  • Ink cartridge is not installed properly.
  • Wrong ink cartridge installed (unsupported type of cartridge).
  • Printer is not detecting the ink cartridge correctly, if at all.

Ink cartridge is not installed properly

If the ink cartridge is not installed correctly, try removing the cartridge from the printer and reinstall it. Make sure it is fully installed and snaps into place securely. Then try printing again. Make sure you turn off the printer and turn it back on to reset the error message.

Wrong ink cartridge installed

If the wrong cartridge is installed, you need to purchase the correct cartridge and install it into the printer. The printer models that a cartridge is supported by are usually listed on the side of the cartridge packaging.

Printer is not detecting the ink cartridge correctly, if at all

It's also possible that the printer is not detecting the cartridge after you install it. This issue could be due to the printer being dirty (excess ink in the ink cartridge tray or ink overflow tray). Try cleaning the printer thoroughly and installing the cartridges again to see if this fixes the problem.

Printer drivers

Another option to try is reinstalling the printer driver. If the driver has become corrupted, reinstalling the driver may fix the issue.

Reset printer counters

There are other options to try, including resetting specific printer functions and counters. For these options, you need to either search the Internet for your printer model and specific reset instructions or contact Canon technical support. The reset instructions differ by model number, so you need to get the instructions for your specific printer.

Your Canon printer uses a series of golden colour contacts on the front of the cartridge as the only point of contact with the cartridge. If these contacts are obscured by dirt, ink or natural oils from your hands this can cause this message to occur, it may even be that the contacts have become damaged (visibly or otherwise) while the cartridge was being handled.

Whatever the case I would recommend running though the basic troubleshooting below in an attempt to resolve the issue.

How do I clear this message?

Assuming that the contacts have not become damaged or dead electronically you can normally bypass this message by cleaning the contacts mentioned previously. I would recommend following the steps below:

  2. Switch the printer off using buttons on the body of the printer. DO NOT turn it off at the plug.
  3. Double check the label of the cartridge to ensure the correct cartridge is being installed for your printer.
  4. Wipe down the contacts on the front of the cartridge using a piece of kitchen tissue or another not fibrous tissue.
  5. Press the power button of the printer to turn it back on.
  6. Reinstall the cartridge, ensuring the cartridge is returned to the correct black/colour section of the cradle.

With any luck the cartridge will now be recognised by your printer and you will be able to carry on printing. if however one of the E04, E05, E14 or E15 “The FINE Cartridge cannot be recognized” messages remain it is likely that the cartridge is damaged/defective. Sadly in this instance the only option that remains is to replace the cartridge, preferably one produced by another party or from another batch.

If you have experienced this issue with multiple cartridges it may be that the corresponding contacts inside the printer have become obscured or even damaged. Thankfully these contacts can be easily accessed by removing the cartridge from the printer and can also be cleaned using the same kind of tissue. These contacts can be pointed in some printers so take care not to leave behind pieces of tissue when cleaning.

What Canon printers/cartridges will this help with?

The E04, E05, E14 and E15 error messages are relevant for a hugh variety of Canon inkjet printers including those printers that are compatible with the Canon PG-37, CL-38, PG-40, CL-41, PG-50 and CL51 range of ink cartridges. These printers include the Canon Fax JX200, MultiPass 450, MultiPass MP150, MultiPass MP160, MultiPass MP170, Pixma iP1200, Pixma iP1300, Pixma iP1600, Pixma iP1700, Pixma iP1800, Pixma iP1900, Pixma iP2200, Pixma iP2400, Pixma iP2500, Pixma iP2600, Pixma MP140, Pixma MP150, Pixma MP160, Pixma MP170, Pixma MP180, Pixma MP190, Pixma MP210, Pixma MP220, Pixma MP450, Pixma MP460, Pixma MP470, Pixma MX300 and Pixma MX310. Which of these six possible cartridges your printer takes will depend entirely upon the model of your printer.

Along with the printer models mentioned above the cleaning of the contacts can help the PG-510, CL-511, PG-512 and CL-513 range of ink cartridges be accepted by a printer. The following printers are all compatible with these black and colour cartridges, the Canon Pixma iP2700, Pixma iP2702, Pixma MP230, Pixma MP240, Pixma MP250, Pixma MP252, Pixma MP260, Pixma MP270, Pixma MP272, Pixma MP280, Pixma MP282, Pixma MP330, Pixma MP480, Pixma MP490, Pixma MP492, Pixma MP495, Pixma MP499, Pixma MX320, Pixma MX330, Pixma MX340, Pixma MX350, Pixma MX410 and Pixma MX420.

You can even use the above advice to clear the E04, E05, E14 and E15 errors with the Canon Pixma MG2150, Pixma MG2250, Pixma MG3150, Pixma MG3155, Pixma MG3250, Pixma MG3550, Pixma MG4150, Pixma MG4250, Pixma MX375, Pixma MX395, Pixma MX435, Pixma MX455, Pixma MX515 and Pixma MX525. These printers take the relatively new Canon PG-540, Cl-541, PG-540XL and CL-541XL ink cartridges.

I hope this has resolved the issue you were experiencing. If however you have any further questions please let us know in the comments.
