Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer
Flashing E 2 after I replaced ink cartridge. E 2 error is a load paper error, nothing is jammed and paper ran through fine. I have powered the printer off/on unplugged from power source, restarted the system...nothing. After replacing ink cartridge the original message was E 5, meaning there was something wrong or obstructing the carriage. I did clear out a small build up of ink, it printed 2 pages. Then nothing. Now this new imaginary error. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Won't take paper
Clean The Paper Feed Rollers Using The Unit's Operation Panel
the paper feed roller is dirty, paper is not fed properly because the
paper feed roller slips. Cleaning the paper feed roller could resolve
the paper feeding problem. Please follow the instructions below to
clean the Paper Feed Rollers directly from the unit.
Since the cleaning process wears down the paper feed roller, perform
this procedure only when necessary and no more than three (3) times.
Note: This procedure is skipped if your machine is in Scan mode. Proceed to step 5.
Note: If paper is not fed properly, repeat steps 4 through 10 above up to three times.
Press the <Feed Switch> button to switch to toggle between the Automatic Sheet Feed (ASF) or Cassette. The light will come on when the <Feed Switch> is set for that paper source.
Note: When printing from the computer, if paper does not feed from the source you have selected on the operation panel, check Paper Source setting in the printer driver. If the option is not set to 'Paper Feed Switch', paper will feed from the source selected in the driver.
Click to return to step 2 above.

just recently had these problems
LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover.
Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side.
There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.
1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed..
2. turned off the printer and turned it back on.
3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond.
4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force.
5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on.
6. this solved all of my problems.
this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.

OK. It sounds like there's something on the carriage bar restricting the movement of the ink carrier. Perhaps some ink got on the bar.
Try taking a clean lintfree rag dampened with rubbing alcohol and clean the bar. This may have to be repeated a number of times to get the foreign matter off the bar and the ink carriage.
Let me know if this helps. iF it does not we can try something else.

3. Release RESUME
4. press RESUME twice, then release POWER
5. let green light blink until printhead has finished moving.
6. Press resume
