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

Canon MP160 Errors 1 5

I tried to refill the black cartridge, but then it started flashing E 1 5, and saying it couldn't reognise the cartridges. Nor the black nor the colored.

What should I do? I called the store where I refilled the cartridge and they said the colored cartridge had blocked, and that I should buy a new one. Will that solve the problem?

    What O.K. button? I don't see any...



    The B and C lights flash in orange. It says it doesn't recognise the cartridges (not the black nor the colored) and that they're empty.



    But I don't see any O.K. button. I have a print screen from the messages, but of course I can't put them here.

    There is a message saying it can't recognise any of the cartridges, and that they're empty.

I think you will find that it is the ALARM light that is flashing, is that correct?

If it is just push the O.K. button to except that the cartridge is not the original or has been filled after you got the meassage that the cartridge was empty.

Also it will show that the ink levels are unknown in both cartridges but thats O.K. it will print fine.

Waht kind of cartridge is used for canon printer K10282


Your machine is a Pixma MP160. It can use either the PG40 or PG50 Black cartridges, and the CL41 or CL51 Colour cartridges. These can be refilled, but the cartridges have a memory function that will need you to bypass the printers cartridge level calculator. Your cartridge refiller should be able to provide you with instructions for this.

Every time i turn my printer on it flashes E, 5... and the alarm button is lit. i installed brand new 40 black and 41 color canon ink cartridges, and the error still isn't fixed


r u sure new cartridge is not refilled one?

E5 error means cartridges are not readable.

When you refill your canon cartridge, especially for color one, it happens. (after 4~5 times of refills)

So you have to replace the cartridge with brand new one.

(for your additional reference, it doesn't happen to black cartridge)

So at least you can refill black...

If you would like to save money, try nozzle injection refill kit by ROADINK.
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.">

Error 5 canon mp160


The error 5 means that the printer cartridge has been "turned off." It is a tactic that Canon has employed to try to prevent refilling of their cartirdges. Basically the machine is constantly checking for signs of a non-original Canon cartridge and has found something to tip it off. We most commonly see this with the color cartridges not the black. The solution is to replace the faulty cartridge.

Ink Cartridge Refill Error E5


press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.
