Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
With error 2 I am told it means no paper yet my printer has plenty of paper. The color cartrige just notified me it was low, but I am only trying to print B/W. Could the need for a new cartrige cause this?
It would give you a different error msg:
