Why does my canon mp160 prints scrambled text

Hello there, I am the computer technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Russell Fuselier!

I would say that your Canon MP160's ink head is misaligned. What you need to do to remedy this is to use the software that came with your printer to allign the ink head.

Your may find the option to allign the ink head by entering into Microsoft Windows control panel, followed by double clicking Printers and Faxes.

Then right click your Canon MP160 printer and click properties, some-times the options are there.

Take care!

My Canon MP160 inkjet won't print. In trying to print a test page, I get the message that the ink absorber is full. What is the remedy for this?

A message display is common with insufficient ink cartrigges. Printers that perform several printing tasks is usually common to deplete the ink capacity. Alternately, installing an ink cartrige may have been a lasting duration possible need for a new cartridge replacement. However, perform a device functionality check by opening the compartments that contain replaceable materials. Ascertain the depleted material requiring replacement like ink, printing paper. Also, observe any malalligned materials like stuck printingn paper. Once every replaceable parts have been cleaned and restored, reconnecting the printer to the computer should request for an allignment functionality.

I am using CANON MP160 Printer. It had been working properly for the last 4 months. But since last few 10 days, I am not able to print as always error 5100 pops up. Kindly suggest.

1. Allow print head to cool down
2. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to ensure a secure connection
3. Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device
4. Reseat ink cartridge (MP160 / MP180 / MP460)

Pinter wont print at all

I don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now
