Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer

Printer problem, piece of foam fell out of printer

I have a Canon MP160 printer, I bought slightly used a couple of years ago. I has been working great until now, and even now, it still prints, but the top left hand corner has a small dogear and ink that crosses diagonally across dogear, and down side for 2 inches. I then noticed a piece of foam lying on the platform where the printed page comes out of the printer. It is 9" long and1/4" wide, except where there are rectangular raised areas at different spots along one side. It looks like it was cut into a precise pattern. I am sure it has something to do with printing/ink because it has ink saturated on one end with a bar of ink halfway down the strip of foam. The printer malso makes a claking sound when it starts printing, and I first thought the paper was jammed, but it printed. I want to know if I can fix this myself, as I am short on funds at present, and where the foam came from. I haven't a clue. Thanks very much. jekan

That foam is an ink cleaner and must be placed under the print head. You can insert that back using a flat screw driver to push the foam. Look at the pattern/markings on the foam that should match the plastics under the printhead. If you open the top cover while your printer is turned off, you can see the plastic that holds the foam.

You can download some of the drivers and such from Canon. I installed a used MP160 on a Mac by downloading the scanner driver, printer driver, MP Navigato program, and "on screen manual" (a help file). There are similar downloads for Windows. Unfortunately they don't have the OmniPage SE software for download so you can't do OCR.

Manufacturing


Canon is still making ink cartridges for printers that came out 15 years ago. I doubt that they will stop making cartridges for the MP160 (which uses the same cartridges as about 15 other models) any time soon.

Foam fell out of printer now printer jams


There are no foams inside the printer for normal operation. Unless this is the one that was inside it during shipping but you were not able to remove it. In any case if you are not having any problems then you are good to go. dont worry about it.

Ink tank was refilled but doesn't work in my printer


Tank might've been dried out in the process. Try using a "clean catridge" from the original software set of options or run a few test-prints using printer buttons to clear it out.
