Ink tank has not been properly recognized.
Error code E05

This error code may cause an orange light on your machine to blink 5 times and is caused by the print head not being installed at all or it may have been installed incorrectly.

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.
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.
A 5E or 5C error code indicates that the washing machine has detected a drainage issue. The most common reason for this error is a blocked filter or a kinked drain hose.
Error Code 5 is a Windows error code that appears when the user does not have sufficient permission to access the requested file or location.
If the E15 or F15 error code appear on the appliance display it means that the water protection system is activated. We recommend that you do not try to resolve the issue on your own at home due to health and safety reasons. Please close the water tap and switch off the appliance.
A Bosch E15 error code is caused by there being too much water in the base of the dishwasher. The best way to fix the E15 error code is to remove the water from the basin and reset the safety switch.

An Er/04, Er/05, or Er/06 error message indicates paper is jammed inside the printer. To resolve the issue, find and clear the printer of any jammed paper, or reset the printer if the printer has no jammed paper.

Canon PIXMA MP800 Error 6A00
ANSWER : I also had the 6A00 Error on my aging MX7600. The pushing-the-sponge-down trick did not work for me. What finally did work involved a part just to the right of the sponges that the print head parks over. Its a white plastic piece, Mine was stuck in a forward position. After much poking around in there, I realized that this piece can slide toward the rear of the machine. And for me, that was what had to happen to get past the error message. Just pushed it toward the rear as far as it would go, slide the print head back in place and it finally started up normally again. I hope this helps anyone out there who might still have one of these still working.
