Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My canon mp160 does not recognize the cartridges

It displays the error code e8 and sometimes e5 as far as I know the e8 is related to the waste ink absorber full and the e5 is related to 3 different problems: 1.the cartridges are not installed appropriately, 2.the cartridges are not supported, or 3.the cartridges are not installed so I have tried many different things and they don't work. It won't let me print.

i need help a.s.a.p.
would anybody help me out with this?

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.

How to fix error 24 for mp 160????


Hi

This is a purge unit error hence you need to check and make sure the purge unit is working fine. If not you need to clean it.

THE PURGE UNIT IS THE ONE ON THE RIGHT SIDE WHERE THE CARTREIDGE RESTS WHEN YOU TURN OFF THE PRINTER.

And at the same keep the below mentioned error list for your future use.

E5 and 2,114,0 errors on Canon MP160


I got this Error 2,114,0 with my MP210 and none of the above fixes worked. This is how I have got it working again: Press and hold the maintenance (picure of spanner and screw driver) button and the reset button ( Inverted red triangle) together for five seconds or more. The flashing error code 1 and 6 will then stop flashing and replaced by a print copy no 1. The printer/scanner is reset and the scanner works.
