Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

E5 and 2,114,0 errors on Canon MP160

I've just bought a second hand MP160,which I only intended to used as a scanner.
I can't get the scanner to operate due to an E5 error on the display,and a 2,114,0 error which appears as a pop-up when I attempt to scan.

Although empty,the cartridges are of the correct type and are seated properly.

When I remove the cartridges completely the error codes do not change.

Is an empty cartridge enough to cause this issue?

Many thanks. E4 E5 ERROR TENGO MP140

    I refilled both of my ink cartriges a week ago and the printer wouldnt let me print. i pressed a button (orange triange in a circle) for 5 seconds and the E disappeared and i could print again. I have been scanning pictures recently however today the scanner wont work. it says something about "printer maintenance, continue after, code 2,114,0".

    can anyone help?

E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 = Carriage error
E23 = Paper feed error
E24 = Purge unit error
E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 = Internal temperature rise error
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full

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

You can download some of the drivers and such from Canon. I installed a used MP160 on a Mac by downloading the scanner driver, printer driver, MP Navigato program, and "on screen manual" (a help file). There are similar downloads for Windows. Unfortunately they don't have the OmniPage SE software for download so you can't do OCR.

E5 and 2,114,0 errors on Canon MP160


I got this Error 2,114,0 with my MP210 and none of the above fixes worked. This is how I have got it working again: Press and hold the maintenance (picure of spanner and screw driver) button and the reset button ( Inverted red triangle) together for five seconds or more. The flashing error code 1 and 6 will then stop flashing and replaced by a print copy no 1. The printer/scanner is reset and the scanner works.
