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

1 Answer

Error code 2 on my MP160 but has paper

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?

I'm trying to replace black color cartridge, but get an error message: carrier jam How do I unjam it? Already did the unplug- check for paper jam and replug...no luck!


Remove all paper...(inspect closely for paper jammed way inside!)

also remove both ink cartriges, reinsert them one at a time carefully and properly....also double check the number code on the ink

the jam error could be either paper or cartriges confusing the printer. let me know if it works....k

E15 showing In MP160


According to:
http://printertools.blogspot.com/2007/10/canon-mp150-reset-codes.html

E15 means the Ink cartridge is not installed.

Both a black and color cartridge need to be properly inserted to clear this error.
