Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Any tricks to overcome this without buying new cartridges?
1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press
the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.
The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored.
Some of the new carts reportedly have fuses which blow if the ink gets too low, denying any further refilling.
To use refills, you will probably have to turn off your Status Monitor.
Go to your printer's Maintenance section.
