Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I can print off things from the printer but cannot scan from it – will not work. It has not worked since the printer inks ran out. Can you normally operate the scanner even though the inks run out? Since then I have had the ink cartridges refilled instead of replacing with new ones, and the scanner still doesn’t work.
Once I turn on the printer, the LED flashes along with the black and colour ink lamps and the alarm lamp remains still – even though I have replaced the ink.
I then tried clicking on the MP Navigator icon and when I press preview or scan, the scan gear box comes up with the message “printer maintenance in progress, scan after it is complete – code 2,114,0”. Once hitting the ok button, nothing happens. I tried the same progress the other day and then the message displayed “scanning failed”.
Are these problems happening because the printer has not got new cannon ink cartridges?
BTW can you please give me the phone number for the NZ Cannon technical support line?
Okay all, I have an MP210 and I had the same problem using it on a Mac. My color ink was running low, and after a final printout it informed me that I was out of ink altogether. Now, the next day I want to scan something, so I bring on MP Nav EX, but it gives me the "maintenance in progress" error. I contacted Canon support and this is what they had to say:
"Unfortunately, the PIXMA MP210 must have all of the inks installed and contain ink for the unit will be able to print. If you are experiencing a "Low Ink" warning, you will still be able to
scan, but not print. If you are getting a "Ink Out" error, you will NOT BE ABLE TO USE the unit for copying, scanning, or printing until the ink is replaced. These precautions are in place to prevent damage to the printer from occurring if printing with no ink is attempted. As the process of scanning is the same as copying for the MP210's hardware, this is a part of the design for this model."
So while this model may seem stupid and inefficient, it is there for a reason. And now you know! :)
