Canon printers MP 160 AND MAYBE
OTHERSA) E5, E6 or E4 - it is cartridges error
- to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 sec. and then release
B) E27 - it is code for reset absorber (EEPROM reset
ink counter reset) and follow the described below
With the printer powered off but connected
to a power source,
1) First..while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button,
press the Power button..do not release the Power button
2) Wait till the Power light is ON, then while still pressing the
Power button... press the Stop/Reset button two times (visible for
alert-orange-LED lights on & off).
3) When releasing both the Power button and the Stop / Reset button
(regardless of order), the printer will move into the
service mode. Waiting for menu selection visible for:
On/off light is fixed green
Display shows "0"
paper light is fixed green
4) Being in this Service mode, press the Stop/Reset button the
specified number of time(s) according to the
function listed in the table below.
Each time the Stop/Reset button is pressed, the 2
LEDs (A4<>Alert) switch alternately into orange and
green, starting with orange.(Note: press 4 times for waste ink counter
The number of Reset button pressing:
1 time Orange Service pattern print
2 times Green EEPROM print
3 times Orange EEPROM reset
4 times Green Waste ink counter reset
5) Turn off the printer.( it must be turned off) then turn it on again.
Only in B) case you can enter into "service mode", in A)
have e.g. paper jam, or another error you CAN'T
the "service mode"

Re: Fault Code E27
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 withthe printer. When the software program asks you to connect theprinter to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly. Hope this helps. Bud

After you repair the fault causing the code you will need a scan tool capable of erasing the fault code. If it keeps coming back after that you have not repaired the problem. There is no other way to clear the code except a scan tool
Code P0463 refers to the fuel gauge sending unit circuit and P0499 refers to the Canister Purge Solenoid circuit - two totally different circuits.
The reference to "good trip equal to zero" requires the use of a scanner that is capable of reading the data stream from the various Circuits. Many inexpensive scanners are really only "code readers" and will output only the fault codes. They cannot provide you with much of the information required to properly diagnose and repair the problem.
The way a circuit is diagnosed changes completely if the problem is an intermittant problem and is not occuring at the time the circuit is being tested. The data stream will give the fault code and tell you how many trips the vehicle has made without the failure reoccuring. For example, if the circuit failed three trips ago and worked on the next three trips, the good trip count will be "3". If the good trip count is "0" this means that the circuit is failing right now. The troubleshooting charts will send you to different steps depending on whether the fault is current or whether it is an intermittant fault.
There is a lot of misconception in the general public about what fault codes actually do. A lot of people think that you simply plug in the "Magic Box" and it tells you exactly what is wrong with the car and what parts to replace. If anyone finds one of those please let me know...I WANT ONE!!!
What fault codes actually do is give an indication that one of the circuits or systems that are monitored by the computer is malfunctioning. They NEVER tell you what parts to replace. It is up to the person making the repairs to diagnose the malfunctioning circuit or system to determine if any "parts" are actually even needed. Many codes can be fixed by making a simple wiring repair (like cleaning a connector) without replacing any parts.
