I've called Canon but they want to charge $9.99 to help me...NOT...so looking for help else where as their website is as NO HELP at all. I've even took the cartridge out several times to make it stop. Also it has not let me tell it that i replaced both of them..it use to..what the heck is going on with it?

I just helped my daughter fix hers by following these instructions I found elsewhere - it worked. Make sure you wait until the light stops blinking to push 'reset' 4 times. Also - lots of people reported small objects obstructing the cartridge - make sure that is not the case first.

1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not,
press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal..

    What / where is the 'resume' button? The 160 seems very different to the 180.

First, download the software at http://www.box.net/shared/4yblbn34kg

Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by
- unplug cable
- press and hold "power" button
- plug cable
- press "resume" and release
- release the "power" button
At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware

Run the software.

oke
