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

2 Answers

I have a Canon MP160. Both lights are on indicating that the ink is low. I just had these cartridges refilled and do not know how to clear this error. I would like the printer to still be able to tell me how much ink is left. That is a valuable tool.

Good day,
You can check the current ink level by pressing [COPY],[SCAN]or[MEMORY CARD]. the LCD will display the ink level for a few seconds.

Note: if an error message is displayed on the LCD/LED, a fine cartridge error has occurred and the machine cannot continue to print.

god bless hope this will help you.

Refilling cartridge is not the best idea. Replace with original cartridges is the best solution

Black ink alarm light after refilling ink


Hello!
Since you have refilled the cartridge and not replaced it with a new one, the printer cannot make out the level of ink in your cartridge.
The only solution is to buy a new cartridge. But I'm sure that the printer can print pages properly.
Hope this helps!

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.

PIXMA MP160 ink level reset


If you hold the resume/stop button on the printer for 10 seconds when you go to print it shouldn't give you anymore messages about that cartridge. This printer never forgets a cartridge and you may have to do it for each one you buy, unless you always refill the same one.  For a PC you can disable the status monitor of the ink by going into control panel, printers & faxes then right clicking on your printer. click properties. pick the maintenance tab then "view printer status" button. click option the click enable status monitor .. then click OK.  If you do this your printer will never tell you if ink is low anymore. 
hope this helps everybody.  I know I was frustrated about it!!
