My MP190 had the same problem. The manual said to unplug the USB from the computer and unplug the printer from the wall (for about 30 seconds). Then turn everything back on again.
I tried this and it worked!

This is neo . Welcome to Fixya . MP145 E42 is scanner error, it means there is a problem in the scanner, for errors like this can not be reset, try to check the lights scanernya, whether at the time of the printer on the lamp flame scanner or die, if death mean damaged, then check, scanner motor cable, ribbon scanner cable to the mainboard of the printer (unplug and plug it back), if still errors check the movement of stuttering .
