    Below advice take from:

    Canon MP150

    1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
    2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
    3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
    4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.

    The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
    Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored.


    Some of the new carts reportedly have fuses which blow if the ink gets too low, denying any further refilling.

    To use refills, you will probably have to turn off your Status Monitor.
    Go to your printer's Maintenance section.

Your problem is waste ink absorber is full,you need the canon mp tool which is use to reset the counter of your printer,but you must dismantle your printer to clean the waste absorber because if you will reset the counter without cleaning it, all waste ink will overflow on your printer.

CANNON Printers

Unplug the printer for at least 2 minutes from the wall.

2. Plug the printer back in but leave the printer turned off.

3. Enter Service Mode

a. Hold Stop/Reset button and the Power button for 5 seconds

b. Release Stop/Reset button but continue to hold Power button

c. Press Stop/Reset twice

d. Release the Power Button

e. Wait for the light to stop flashing. The printer is now in service mode. The display may be blank or simply read "Canon" during this time.

4. Do an EPROM reset.

a. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times.

b. Press the Power button twice. The printer will save the changes and then it will reboot. A little cd/dvd icon will appear in the LCD screen.

3. The printer will probably now require the same setting up as when you first unpacked it. That is, you will need to select a language and let the printer do a head alignment.

The printer is now enabled.

MP 160 Canon printer, error code E5. I just want to use this machine as a scanner. Do I still need to load the cartirages?


Yes, the unit will not operate without the cartridges.
E5-5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed.
