Select your language
When the power is connected, the printer will ask you to select your language.
Press the start/yes button to confirm you would like to set the language, and
then use the up and down arrow buttons to find the language you wish to use
for the LCD panel menus. Once you have found your language, press start/yes to
select it.
Note that the printer will only ask you to set the language the first time the
printer is powered up. If you wish to select a different language at a later time,
press the setup button repeatedly until you find the language menu.

Change language from dutch english

Uninstall the printer and scanner software, disconnect the printer from the computer, then reboot your machine.

Once rebooted, insert the installation disc and follow the instructions (Make sure you choose the english language installation). Hopefully, when installation is complete, everything should be in english.

If not, go to and download the english installation for your printer, then follow the instructions above.Still having Problem Then follow Us For:

Hi there I purchased a MP160

Which site did you go to to get the drivers?
The Canon site i found asked you to specify which operating system and which language you wanted it in.
I don't know of a setting to change to get it to install properly.
Trying going to this site and specifying language and let me know how it goes. I'll keep trying to help till we can solve this.
Good Luck.

The language is not english in printing preferences. I tried the language settings on Regional and Language options but it showed already as english

You installed the wrong driver. Uninstall this driver and all the files associated with it and reinstall the English driver.

Scroll down to Page 21 for instructions.

If you are unable to understand the current language, as to navigate through the menus, it refers you to Page 24 to Reset the printer to Factory Defaults which should be English.

You can save a copy of this file to your computer for future reference.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Do a factory reset on the printer (consult your manual) and see if that resolves the issue.

Prints gibberish

You need to ensure you have the correct drivers for your computer. Adobe uses PostScript drivers to print out .pdf files. Some drivers are Printer Control Language (PCL) and do not work well with .pdf.

Web pages print ramdom characters

Try a different version I had it happen to me, so if it did it using 9.0 adobe acrobat reader I would go to 5.0 or 6.0 version instead and then it would solve my problem everytime it's a hassle but don't know any other way around so that's my best advice.
