The print head is not reading the cartridge. Either the print head or cartridge is bad.

try removing the cartridge and wiping the metal conector with a dry cloth and do the same to the print head.

if that doesnt fix it then replace the cartridge, do not refill it. If that doesnt fix it then the print head is bad and most likely it will be cheaper to replace the printer, unless you can do the work yourself.

My MP160 has an error code E5 and nothing I do will move it


I think you may have answered your own question.
Here is a list of error codes for your printer, as you can see the code E5, means the cartridge is not installed properly or un-supported.
I would remove cartridge, check slot for debris, clean contacts on cartridge, re-seat cartridge and then try again. If all fails then try a new cartridge, as the other one could be faulty.
If you still have no joy, you probably have a faulty print head unit.

E2-2 = No paper (ASF)
E3-3 = Paper jam
E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 = Carriage error
E23 = Paper feed error
E24 = Purge unit error
E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 = Internal temperature rise error
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 = Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 = EEPROM error
E33 = Paper feed position error
E35 15 = USB Host VBUD overcurrent error - USB
E37 17 = Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 = Other hardware error
E42 22 = Scanner error
