Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I don't know if it is a feed problem or what. I am trying to take the printer apart to look at it. Any suggestions?? I took all jammed paper out of feed, it still doesn't work though and I keep getting the same error even though I can't see any more paper jammed in there.
What may have happened is that the Paper sensor is locked down and tells the printer that there is paper in the path (although there isn't any). The paper sensor is a toggle switch and there is a paddle that pushes it down as the paper goes in/out. Look on the right side of the unit ,under the roller assembly. Sorry, but I do not have a service manual for this unit.
Error list :
E2-2 = No paper (ASF)
E3-3 = Paper jam
E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly

E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
