Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Russell Fuselier!

I would say that your Canon MP160's ink head is misaligned. What you need to do to remedy this is to use the software that came with your printer to allign the ink head.

Your may find the option to allign the ink head by entering into Microsoft Windows control panel, followed by double clicking Printers and Faxes.

Then right click your Canon MP160 printer and click properties, some-times the options are there.

Take care!
Norman-Wynne Damstra

Hi there not know if it will work so you go to come back to let us know pleas.

Also if you are using the Refillable ink cartilages stop they always cause major issues

the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a
service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the on/off lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button the specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.(Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in
