Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Canon mp160 shows as 'off-line'

The 'b' light on the front panel id showing a solid orange colour and both home pc's show the device as 'off-line'. We swap cables when we want to print on the kids pc..saves money on wasted ink.

Hi there it is ink error.
You can try to reset the cartages this may do it Please call back let us know if it worked for you, PLEASE.

But some time when you get the chance do clean the waste tank out.
 

  1. Start with printer off

  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on

  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.

  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.

  5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).

  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Have changed Ink Black and Colour... Stil getting error Message.


Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.
