Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I've just bought a second hand MP140,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?
Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
