Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Testimonial: "Thanks ....you were very helpful .... i removed the data cable & restart it and it worked "
My pixma mp160 showed E 3 and would not print at all. No need to take it apart or throw it out. Take a spray bottle, put in some metyle hydrate, oppen the ink acsess cover on your printer. When the ctgs. are to the left unplug the power cord to keep them there. Now carefully but liberaly squirt methyle hydrate onto the ink ctg. rests and all that imediate area where you'll see ink spatter, to wash it clean. Also a quick rince of the paper rollers. The methyle hydrate acts as a mild solvent and dries very quickly. My printer works like new since this treatment. Good luck.
