E4 says the ink is empty, sometimes you can print if you just press and hold the OK button for a few seconds, but if the error doesn't clear, you will have to replace the color ink before you can print in just black.

Do we have to have to have the colour cartridge to make mp160 work? i.e will it work with just the black cartridge?


Canon MP 169 will work only if both cartridges are inserted. If your color cartridge is empty then it will print only black (use grayscale option) but then also empty color cartridge should be present in the printer.

Hope it helps. Please rate.

I want to use black ink only and stop wasting color ink


Hi,
Go to Control Panel->Printers. Then right click on your printer and select printing preferences. There you will see an option like Print in Grayscale or Black and White only.
However, please note that some printers although they are set to print in grayscale they also use the color cartridge and some even don't allow you to print in grayscale if the color cartridge is empty. Why is that? Manufacturer's way of charging you more money.

MP 160 IS PRINTING ONLY BLACK AND PINK COLLORS


Maintenance your cartridge with head clean or deep clean. If you don't get full colour, then change the colour cartridge.
