    E5 error on canon MP160 printer

    Hello!

    Recently I have a little trouble with my printer! Indeed the level of ink cartridges was always at least as I had to change the cartridge .. So I continued to print, as if the level was marked as full .. But recently I changed the cartridge because it was empty and now the E5 error appears on the screen of the printer and I can not print or scan .. I consulted the manual and found nothing at all ..

    I hope you can help me.

    Thank you in advance
