Hi,
This may sound silly, but I have myself made the mistake of inserting a new cartridge and not checking on the cartridge print head for a piece of sticky tape covering the print head. This tape is often stuck there by the manufacturer to prevent the ink from leaking out or drying up.
Check to make sure there is no tape stuck over the print head then check to make sure your printer driver is installed properly.
Try printing a test page to determine if the problem is related to the application from which you are printing or if the problem is printer related. To print a test page, go to your printers and faxes page from control panel and right-click on your printer icon and choose "properties".
Hope this info helps to solve your problem.
Regards,
Graemevm

I have been given a canon pixma MP160 with no ink cartridges. what sort do I look for in the store.?


This printer uses 2 ink cartridges.
  • Ink Cartridge Configuration 1 black cartridge, 1 color cartridge (cyan, magenta, yellow)
You need to purchase the cartridges that suit this model printer.

If the printer does not print properly then the printhead may be faulty and needs to be replaced, BUT these are expensive. It may be better to put your money towards a new and better printer as a new printer is not much more expensive than the cost of a new printhead.
