How to install Canon MP 160 ink cartridges??


Turn on the printer and open the scanning unit. The cartridge holder unit will move to the left.There is marking on the printer housing B and C. B is black and C is color. B is the left side holder and C is the right side holder.The cartridges are inserted on a slight tilt. Angle the cartridge with the cartridge resting on its buttom, Push the cartridge in until it touch the front of the holder, then up until it click in place.You have to tilt the cartridge in order for it to snap in.

Do we have to have to have the colour cartridge to make mp160 work? i.e will it work with just the black cartridge?


Canon MP 169 will work only if both cartridges are inserted. If your color cartridge is empty then it will print only black (use grayscale option) but then also empty color cartridge should be present in the printer.

Hope it helps. Please rate.

MP 160 IS PRINTING ONLY BLACK AND PINK COLLORS


Maintenance your cartridge with head clean or deep clean. If you don't get full colour, then change the colour cartridge.

The ink cartridges are not installed [1401], or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed [1485], or the ink cartridges are not installed properly [1687].
Check if supported ink tank(s) is installed, and re-install them properly, and then close the scanning unit.

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.
