Lots of Q-tips! I'd also use some small pieces of cotton cloth--be careful it doesn't leave strands of cloth in the bottom of the printer. I've had this happen and I just stuck with it until it got reasonably clean.
Oh--and warm water will work just fine. Most of the ink is water-soluble

Installing only one printer cartridge


suggest you install a color cartridge and set up the printer for color. When the color cartridge runs out of ink, you should be able to continue printing in black only.

MP 160 Canon printer, error code E5. I just want to use this machine as a scanner. Do I still need to load the cartirages?


Yes, the unit will not operate without the cartridges.
E5-5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I am trying to reset the empty ink cartridge error code on a Canon mp-530 multifunction printer after installing a refilled a refilled black ing cartridge


Hi, did you refill yourself or did you buy a refilled cartridge. If you purchased a refilled cartridge and the chip is missing, you will need to take the chip off your old cartridge and install on the refilled cartridge.

First, download the software at http://www.box.net/shared/4yblbn34kg

Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by
- unplug cable
- press and hold "power" button
- plug cable
- press "resume" and release
- release the "power" button
At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware

Run the software.

oke

Mp 460 tryin to insert ink for the 1st time


Your post is in the wrong place. I almost got you the wrong directions. LOL


Issue: How do I install the ink cartridge(s)?
Solution: Installing / removing ink cartridges MP160 / MP180 / MP460

Installing / Removing Ink Cartridges To print normally, install or remove ink cartridges in an orderly procedure. Installing ink cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover).The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

    Note: After confirming that the scanning unit support is fixed into position, release your hands.

  2. Take out a new cartridge from its casing and gently remove the orange protective tape in the direction of the arrow.

    05sj00081_02.jpg


    Note: - Do not attempt to reattach the protective tape once you have removed it.
    - Do not touch the gold electrical contacts or the print head nozzles after removing the protective tape.

  3. Insert the ink cartridge into the ink cartridge holder.- Black: the left slot- Color: the right slot*

    *One black cartridge and one color cartridge must be installed in the machine in order for the printer to operate. It does not matter if the capacities (Standard or High) do not match.

  4. Push up on the front of the cartridge until it locks into place. (A click sound will be heard when the cartridge is locked in place.)

  5. Confirm that the ink cartridges are installed properly.

    <1> The ink cartridge is not installed properly.

    <2> The ink cartridge is installed properly.

  6. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).

  7. Wait until the preparatory operation is complete; it takes about one to two minutes.

Removing Ink Cartridges:
  1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the scanning unit (printer cover). The ink cartridge holder moves to the replacement position.

  2. Press down on the semi-circular tab to release the cartridge and then remove it.


    Note: Handle the ink cartridges carefully to avoid staining clothes and surrounding work area.

  3. Remove and replace each cartridge individually. Or, remove the second cartridge after the first has been removed.

  4. Fold the scanning unit support and close the scanning unit (printer cover).
