Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Sanning problems for multi function printer PIXMA MP 160


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?
Thank you,

Maria

    I have the same problem only with a mp210, but it's the same thing..

    Since my black ink cartridge has run out, my scanner doesn't work either. What's the connection between the scanner and the printer? And how do I fix this?

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! :)

    The purpose of this design is probably more to insure the sale of ink cartridges. Their business model is to sell the units at lower costs and make up "lost" revenue through recurring sale of ink. Is not "stupid", but clever and effective - though underhanded and counter to the consumer's interest.

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

THIS SOLUTION FOR PEOPLE WHO CANNOT RESET THEIR OWN PRINTER LIKE ME

hi, now i got a solution how to SCAN if your printer have E-5 error or something. First u must remove the both cartridge from your printer and make sure u connect your printer to your computer, after that, do this

With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.

When the Power is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.

And then you will see no error in your printer (the LED shows number 1,and the alarm is in green)

NOW U CAN SCAN USING MP NAVIGATOR!

Cannon Pixma MP780 won't print. Just replaced black ink cartridge, do I have to replace all of them for it to print


Not normally but the black print head nozzles maybe blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

My MP810 won't print or scan in black. Colors work fine. I replace the large ink cartridge and ran the clean print nozzle cycle, but still won't deliver black ink. gmg


do you mean it won't print black, leave the scanning in black out of it, i think you will probably need a new printhead, if this is the first time with this type of error, count yourself lucky that the printhead lasted as long as it did. when replaced you will find all works well.

Esp 3 printer


HP has a trade in program that will give you $50 off a printer that,I think, has to have a regular price, NOT the sale price, of $179. So if the regular price is at least 179 and it is on sale for 129 you can get the trade in.
Check on line by typing: HP printer trade in.
I had the same problem as you, Kodak has sent me 3 new printheads, new ink and even a rebuilt printer. They won't give me my money back. I have talked to over 8 different people at Kodak and they want to sent me another printer. They have big problems with their ink, I got only 4 4X6 color pictures and only 85 black print pages before the ink ran out!

Dell 810 all-in-one printer.


Your drive rollers are losing their grip.

This sometimes works: use pure alcohol, not rubbing achohol which contains water, wet the lower half of a sheet of quality, heavier paper (the cheap stuff may lose too many fibers), place the wet end in the manual feed, do a form-feed (normally rejects a sheet) and intermittently stop it from passing through several times while the printer is trying to transport it.

This may help to remove accumulated paper fibers and air-borne contaminents from the drive rollers.

Otherwise, you will have to do some disassembly to access them for more thorough cleaning.

Black ink not printing


Fix ink cartridge
I had same problem. I must have ran the clean cycle more than 30-50 times over a period of days. That never made any difference. I was about to toss the whole thing but figured I would try one more thing. If it didn't work I would be in no worse shape. Here is what I did.
Took an almost empty black cartridge and inject a lot of 100% Acetone to dilute ink. Left some black in it since I didn't want to think it was empty. Inserted this cartridge and ran the cleaning a few time. IT WORKED. I used my word processor program and filled a page with large bold font characters and printed a page or two. Each page cleared more nozzles. After doing this cleaning/printing a number of time, I put in the full good cartridge. Ran the cleaning a few time to eject any of the Acetone diluted ink. Ran the printed page a few time to remove more of the diluted ink.
Everything seems to work now.

Kodak 5300 printer


K...Trust the solution. Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.
