42 error definitely caused by loose flat cable from the scanner down into the electronics. End of the cable does not have a plug, just solder on each element, push the cable into its socket.

SOURCE: Canon MP160 Error E42

Scanner light should come on at power up. Found ribbon cable connecting scanner unit to base had come unplugged from socket on circuit board. The ribbon cable is one of three found near back hinge of scanner and is hidden underneath the other two. It should drape over the edge of circuit board and then plug into small recepticle on inner side of board. I plugged it in and printer works again. Hope this helps.

My pixma mp160 doesn't want to scan and through a error messages 2,250,0. what must I do? the led flashes E 42.


E42 is a scanner error.
Turn off your printer and unplug from electrical outlet.
Wait at least 20 minutes.
This will allow the scanner lamp and components to cool.
Plug printer back in and turn on printer.

Eroor E42


E42 means there is a scanner error. Canon website suggests you turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord from the power source. Wait approximately ten minutes, plug the power cord back in and power on the machine.

If the error is not resolved, a machine service error may have occurred. Please contact your local Service Center.

Hello there Mr Expert. I have just pulled apart my MP160 to remove some material (the printer cover) which was drawn in together with the paper. After reassembling I have an error E42. Any idea what is...


Hi there,

Erro code 42 error definitely caused by loose flat cable or the ribon cable, check for any loose and attach it again. Also this could be a problem with the cable it could be the contact with is damaged and need to be replaced.

This cable need to connect electronics on your printer.

Hope this helps.

E15 showing In MP160


According to:
http://printertools.blogspot.com/2007/10/canon-mp150-reset-codes.html

E15 means the Ink cartridge is not installed.

Both a black and color cartridge need to be properly inserted to clear this error.
