If you have installed a generic ink cartridge the printer is not recognizing the circuit board on the ink. If they are genuine Canon cartridges they might be defective. Try uninstall and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't solve the issue then you may have to swap out the cartridges.

Inkjet cartridges dry up very soon. You have to use it everyday. Or clear the nozzles using hot tap water soak. Or try new cartridges again.

Hello, my printer is able to scan and copy but it doesn't print. Both the cartridge lights are blinking but their is sufficient ink the cartridge. Can you help? I have Cannon MP190. Thanks


If the lights are blinking for the cartridges, then there is not enough ink.
Get new ones or refilled ones and try it again.

Or there may be enough ink, but the electronics on the carts are not working, could be a short, or an open circuit.

The color ink cartridge that is " blinking " is


Don't buy Canon as they absolutely ROB you for the ink!! They are worse than ****** dealers! At least HP allows you to use non (rip-off) OEM cartridges without all the hassle! My printer will be thrown out after the ink runs out as I will not be ripped-off by Canon again!

Colour ink cartridge empty but the on off light and red ink light flashes alternately and the carriage will not move to allow access to remove the empty cartridge.


hello, are you sure its not the error light that is blinking alternately with the power light, or is ink light indicator blinking , and just the power light blinking. i would first problably pull the power cord. then plug back in, and try again. the alternating error light and power light would be inkjet service, maint or waste pads are full, as far as the other error, i looked it up, and that error not coming up, unless there is something else going on. maybe cover for ink cartridge is caught, and not allowing printer to cycle.

Blinking check print cartridge light and "E" for copies


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink or toner cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridges that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks or toner causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead or photo conductors.
If you are using factory new ink or toner cartridges, then please call the manufacturer’s Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

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.
