    This page here should be able to give you detailed instructions on resetting your printer so the error goes away.

    Please let me know if this works for you or not.

    The instructions are clear but when holding down poer button and reset button the led display does not display anything. When power is on normally the e1 flash e5 codes reappear. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks alot folks. dave go mizzou

    I would say the next step would be to call Canon’s customer service line at 1-800-OKCANON.
