Pixma MP 160 alarm lamp on but no error code

My Pixma MP 160 was working fine until yesterday. Then i noticed that the orange alarm lamp was on but there was no error code... I couldn't print nor scan with it.. Pressing any other button, including on/off does nothing.. the orange lamp remains on and nothing happens.. Upon lifting the scanning unit section, again nothing at all happens.. so as is I cannot even access the ink cartridges..

Paper won't feed in my Pixma MP 530, and I get a flashing alarm.


You need to tell us in what is the sequence the orange and green lamps flash. This will tell us what error you are getting. its more accurate than any error code given by the pc.

7 orange flashes and then one green..what does that mean?


7 orange flashes of the alarm lamp means that FINE cartridge is not installed in the correct position. Confirm that the FINE Cartridges are installed in the appropriate positions.
Please refer to the link below to see document on replacing FINE cartridge http://support-ph.canon-asia.com/contents/PH/EN/8200182600.html
