Ink cartridge I just bought the canon pixma mp160 all-in-one printer and i just bought the 40-black ink cartridge only no colors. It also states that this printer takes 3 other cartridges. Since i just put in the black-40 cartridge its telling me a message of E5 on the computer screen it says color ink not recognized because i didnt put one in. Do i have to buy the color ink cartridge also so it could work. Thank you for ur help.
