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

1 Answer

Ink absober full

I tried the posting by Eagle338 (Mar 10, 2008) but hit a snag - I press and hold the Resume/cancel button (#9), I then press and hold the On/Off button and NOTHING HAPPENS. If I then release the On/Off button the printer 'boots' as normal and the E, 2, 7 lights flash up on the LED in orange.
It seems that I cannot enter the 'service mode' to be able to reset the printer.
Please help, I am so frustrated.
Thanks.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK TRY THIS

I believe you need software from Canon to reset the ink pad full error code for that printer. Here is a link where you might be able to download it: The file name you are looking for is mypwin210aen.exe or mypwin210en.exe i don't know which version will work best for you. If these don't work then try calling Canon for information on where to find the proper program

Ink absober is full


Eight flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber for the ink used during Print Head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Important

Canon recommends that you call for service as soon as this error occurs. Once the waste ink absorber becomes completely full, printing will no longer be possible

Ink absober is full


Turn off printer. Hold down Resume button and press Power button. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go. Press resume button 2 times then let both buttons go. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more. Your printer should respond as normal.
