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

Open Question

Printer maintenance in progress, scan after it is complete ? code


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 color 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,

SOURCE: how topaper load cannon mp 160 pixma

Hi there,

Loading Paper into your Canon MP 160 Pixma.

A) Loading Paper :
Follow this procedure:
1) Open the Paper Support, then pull out the Paper Support Extension.

2) Place a stack of paper (print side up) in the Auto Sheet Feeder, pinch the Paper Guide and adjust it to the left side of the stack.
* Set the Paper ThicknessLever to the correct position for the paper.
Note : Set the Lever to the left for most paper. When the Lever is set to the right, the confirmation message appears before the machine starts printing.
Important : Make sure the stack does not exceed the Load Limit Mark.


B) Loading Envelopes
Follow the following steps:
1) Open the Paper Support, then pull out the Paper Support Extension.

2) Prepare the envelopes for loading.
Important : * Press down firmly on the edges of the envelopes to make the folds crisp. Also, press firmly on the area that corresponds to the edges of the back flap.
* Remove any curling by holding the edges diagonally and bending them gently.
* If the edges of the envelopes are inflated or curled, place the envelope on a flat surface. With a pen, press down while moving it from the center toward the edges of the envelope.
* Ensure that no curl or puff exceeds 1/8 in. (3mm).

3) Place the stack of envelopes (print side up) in the Auto Sheet Feeder, pinch the Paper Guide and adjust it to the left side of the stack.
* Load the envelopes in the Auto Sheet Feeder with the short side down.
* Set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.

Important : Make sure that the stack does not exceed the Load Limit Mark.

Hope this helps. PLease rate my response.
Thanks
Have a good day.

Just hold the stop and reset button until the warning goes away. Works like a charm

Troubleshooting in scanning and printing


You have to reset that cart. before you fill it there should be instructions on how to do this on the refill kit you bought, you cannot just fill the cart and put it in the printer you will dmage the print head if you have not already done so. I cannot see what was done so I could not give you a solution but only tell you that the ink needs to be charged before you put it into the printer!!!

You might try a hard reset of printer along with uninstalling and reinstalling the software for the printer.
If nada, you might give Canon a call and ask their techies for their feedback on situation.

Sanning problems for printer PIXMA MP 160


some printers can detect that the cartridges are refilled based ona barcode or scanning of the cartridges. Does this Cannon have ink tanks or ink cartridges. If it has intakes then the print head needs to be cleaned wth rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. If they are cartridges then it would be good just to buy the original cartidges. As far as the scanning goes this can be a direct connection to the printer going through maintenance. If it continues to not scan then you may need to uninstall the scanner. see if the scanner shows up in your scanners area. if not then it will need to be re-installed.
