Your machine is a Pixma MP160. It can use either the PG40 or PG50 Black cartridges, and the CL41 or CL51 Colour cartridges. These can be refilled, but the cartridges have a memory function that will need you to bypass the printers cartridge level calculator. Your cartridge refiller should be able to provide you with instructions for this.
Error code 4 normally indicates that there is no unk, and the solution is by installing a genuine cartridge, Try to use Black PG40 remanufactured Canon printer ink
cartridge. This cartridge is a high capacity cartridge which has been
filled with 23ml of ink compared with the 16ml (Black) that you get
with the originals. Compatible with: Canon Pixma MP140. if this error still occur it is better that you try the following procedure below:-
When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP140 printer
you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also
be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree
to do so, and you won’t get the warnings again because the ink levels
won’t be monitored by the printer.
I refilled my MP190 Black cartridge PG-37 by drilling a hole in the top (roughly in the middle) and using the syringe supplied with the ink refill kit. To make the printer work again, press and hold down the Stop/Reset button (on bottom right hand side of printer) for at least 5 seconds until the display reads 1 again. This bypasses the ink level detector and is explained in the trouble shooting section of the on screen manual supplied on the printer installation CD. It works. It then happened again with the colour cartridge, so I repeated the process. It worked again. This should also work for the PG40 and CL41 cartridges.
You cannot reset the ink level indicator for the HP 60 ink cartridge. It shouldn't matter anyway because the level is only estimated for "management purposes only" (see user manual) meaning to let you know when it's near time to order a new cartidge. I have tried cycling through 3 different cartridges to reset the ink level for the one I refilled but it didn't work. Refill and just ignore the ink level indicator. Also, it's a good idea to clean the print heads with the solvent in the refill kit before refilling to remove old ink and imrpove print quality.
Check the Label on the cartridge if it covers a certain area then you will get an error message. Compare it with a good cartridge the label should nearly touch the lugs at top end. Only applies to refilled Carts.
Canon cartridges have an intelligent chipset to prevent them from being refilled. To have them working properly you need to reset the chipset. Try the software on this link. If the above did not work you will need to use a cartridge chip resetter if you want to refill your cartridge.
