Cant scan, because i have no ink why is this ?


It's just the way it's designed. It may seem stupid but by forcing you to replace the ink as soon as possible it minimises the chances that the printer heads will be ruined by dried out ink residues. Although duff heads can be replaced, it's usually more economical to replace the complete device.

Many other all-in-ones are the same, those which don't are usually those like most HP models where the printer head comes as an integral part of every new ink cartridge.

Model DCP 120C-UNABLE TO CLEAN-


Unplug the printer from power cord.Press and hold the "menu" button, then plug the device.You'll see on the LCD screen a "machine error" code.If this code is 40,41 or 4F the print head is defective.If the
error is 50 or 51 there is error in Purge unit and your printer need service.If error is 46 the waste ink tank is full.Follow this:
1. Pres 'menu', 'mono start' then'menu' one by one...
2. Press the arrow up or down to go to'maintenance 80'.
3. Press 'mono start' several times to go to'Purge'. Finding the PURGE will show some numeric value
which is Iassume the number of times the printer had cleaned.
4. Press'arrow up' key and scroll for number "2" then press "set".Do the same for numbers 7, 8 and 3.
After you have entered thiscombination, the purge numeric value will be reseted to 00000.

Canon Pixma MP160 "Head ID Error" when try to print.


E5 is "The ink cartridges is not install or a non supported ink"
Probably one from your cartridges is defective.Replace the cartridges.

Manufacturing


Canon is still making ink cartridges for printers that came out 15 years ago. I doubt that they will stop making cartridges for the MP160 (which uses the same cartridges as about 15 other models) any time soon.
