Hello Naviscott,


The E15 error would mean the printer is having problem detecting the ink. You can try reloading the tanks to make sure the black tank and the color tank are seated correctly. The printer will need the correct black and color tanks properly loaded to work.


We would be happy to assist further with the issue. To provide some feedback or some troubleshooting steps, we would need some additional information. If you could reply to this message with the information below, we can provide some assistance.


  1. Do you currently have both tanks loaded? If so, what does it show for the model number and the country the tanks were made in?
  2. Did the issue begin after replacing a tank?
