E2 problem with my camon mp 160


How to clear Error Code Canon printers MP150 MP160
CANNON Printers

Unplug the printer for at least 2 minutes from the wall.

2. Plug the printer back in but leave the printer turned off.

3. Enter Service Mode

a. Hold Stop/Reset button and the Power button for 5 seconds

b. Release Stop/Reset button but continue to hold Power button

c. Press Stop/Reset twice

d. Release the Power Button

e. Wait for the light to stop flashing. The printer is now in service mode. The display may be blank or simply read "Canon" during this time.

4. Do an EPROM reset.

a. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times.

b. Press the Power button twice. The printer will save the changes and then it will reboot. A little cd/dvd icon will appear in the LCD screen.

3. The printer will probably now require the same setting up as when you first unpacked it. That is, you will need to select a language and let the printer do a head alignment.

The printer is now enabled.

Canon mp160 error


E5 means one of three things.

1. The ink cartridges are not installed
2. The ink cartridges installed are not compatible
3. The ink cartridges are not installed correctly.

Are you using genuine Canon or a copy cartridge? If copy then they may not be correct. If they are genuine Canon you may need a new printhead.
