Hi, error e5 means the ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly.

Take your ink cartridges out, examine them for damage and clean the contacts, then put them back in. If the problem persists, replace them with new ones.
