The ink cartridges are not installed [1401], or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed [1485], or the ink cartridges are not installed properly [1687].
Check if supported ink tank(s) is installed, and re-install them properly, and then close the scanning unit.

I need to replace ink cartrige can i use a 41 color instead of a 51 color


The Canon PIXMA MP160 uses the FINE Cartridges: PG-40 Black, CL-41 Color and CL-51. The only difference is the CL-51 is Hi-Capacity. I have included the link to the support portion of the Canon site so you can see what is available for supplies and if your need help in the future with your printer.

Changing print color cartridge


The cartridge you have change are did not much or not compatible with your printer. You just buy a cartridge with the same brand of your previous cartridge that used and to make sure that your printer are recognize it. Because some compatible ink are cannot be recognized by other printer.

Do I have to install a color cartirdge (CL-41)?


Some will allow printing with just black & others will not. You may need to put a color cartridge in to print. Check your owners manual or canon website to make sure but if you do need a color cartridge you can buy a generic brand that works with your printer to save some $$. Hope this helps.
