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

1 Answer

Doesn't print correctly

It's the wierdest thing. When I print something (this only happens sometimes) instead of printing the correct document it prints one letter or number after what it is supposed to be. So like if I wanted to print Account it prints Bddpvou. It happens with letters and numbers. I am trying to print something that is 14 pages and on page 2 through 14 it prints like this. Page 1 is normal. I don't get it.

Current printers do not have a 'built-in' font or character set. The printers only print what they are told to print by the application from which they are printing. What program are you printing from? Does it do this with all programs? Check printing from very basic programs like Notepad or Wordpad (print documents that are at least a couple of pages long). If the printer prints correctly from there, you may need to contact the publisher of the program that is giving you the weird printing.

I have a Canon MP 210 printer, I put in a new colour print cartridge, now it shows the Cartridge is empty and when it prints the colour is only pink, I have checked that the print cartridge is installed...


I've heard of similar things happening and being corrected by opening its easy print software and trying to print something there to see if it's a driver issue. Also you can try manually correcting the color

No content prints on document when word document is sent to the printer


Is the problem only with Microsoft Word? If so you might have selected something else in the "Print What" box in the "Print" dialog box instead of "Document". See the below screenshot and make sure that the "Document" is selected. The Print dialog box will come up when you click the "Print" sub-menu from the "File" menu, i.e. click "File" and select "Print".

If this doesn't help, reinstall the printers drivers/softwares. That should fix your problem.
If the problem isn't only with Microsoft Word Documents, then there might be other problems with your printer, it could be cartridge/s, ink, drivers, etc..
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a MFC 490CW brother Printer I want to print B/W copies only I change the preference to grayscale but still does not print


Hi there,
That's the correct thing that you need to do, setting the printer preferences to GRAYSCALE. If that doesn't work you can also try printing document using a different/another application (example: Microsoft Word, Excel), because sometimes the setting of an application overrides the setting of the printer driver.
The last option for this issue is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Sometimes when I print .pdf file the computer request me put the file name instead of printing


this happens when you have selected a PDF printer instead of the real Physical Printer for printing

a PDF printer is a software which converts any thing sent out like a document or file for printing into a PDF file tis is useful for saving data from files or majorly from websites and emails as a softcopy on your system.

next time on, when printing check to see that the selected printer on default is a Physical Printer (like HP or Cannon etc.) connected to your computer and you'll have your hard copies

hope could be of help, cheers

Double sided issues


Duplex means 2 sided copying. If you have an odd number of pages, then it will do this if you are sticking them all together (if I understand what you are saying correctly). Either seperate your jobs or stick a blank piece of paper at the end to correct this. Again, I am not sure if I am understanding your situation correctly, but I think that will correct it if its what I think you are saying? Clear as mud, huh?

Problem: only prints every other line of document


I think you have nailed it.
Strangely enough, that is not an uncommon issue.
One word processor format may be changed when you transfer the documents to another.
I have even witnessed that very thing totally crash printers.
Very large printers. I would say what you surmise is exactly correct.
May want to see if there are some print driver options to try, AKA switch from PS to PCL . They may help.
