Turn on the printer and open the scanning unit. The cartridge holder unit will move to the left.There is marking on the printer housing B and C. B is black and C is color. B is the left side holder and C is the right side holder.The cartridges are inserted on a slight tilt. Angle the cartridge with the cartridge resting on its buttom, Push the cartridge in until it touch the front of the holder, then up until it click in place.You have to tilt the cartridge in order for it to snap in.

SOURCE: How to reset the ink level monitor on Canon Prixma MP 160

Desconectar del toma corriente el impresor
Mantener presionado el botton de power mientras se conecta al toma corriente
Manteniendo presionado el mismo boton de power presionar dos veces el boton de reset (circulo con triangulo rojos)
Soltar el boton de power
La impresora se tardara unos 10 segundos en mostrar el vaor numeroco de cero.
Presionar + para que el valor se mueva de 0 a 1.
Cuando el valor este en 1, presionar el boton que esta a la par de reset, de esta manera se encenderan dos luces
una es la de plain papaer y la otra de photo paper, en este momento se coloca papel en la impresora
Se presiona el boton de power una o dos veces (da igual), la impresora imprimira una hoja de prueba
Al imprimir esta hoja el valor en la pantalla regresa al valor de cero, dejarlo asi
Abrir el scan cover (para sacar los cartuchos pero no se sacan), con la tapa abierta desconectar fe la energia al impresor
Sacar los cartuchos, cerrar la tapa y encender el impresor.
Volver a colocar los cartuchos ya refilados en la impresora y LISTO.

Read the manual.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Canon Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Look for manuals on the site.

The FINE Cartridge may not be installed properly, or the Cartridge may not be compatible with this machine. Open the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover) and install the appropriate FINE Cartridge.

If the error is not resolved, the FINE Cartridge may be damaged. Contact your Canon Service representative.

Error code 16


Hi there .the error e1.6 on Canon Multifuntionals ( MP, MG , MX ) is :
DESCRIPTION:
Ink has run out.
SOLUTION:
Replace the ink cartridge and close the Scanning Unit (Printer Cover).
If printing is in progress and you want to continue printing, press the Stop/Reset button for at least 5 seconds with the ink cartridge installed.
Then printing can continue under the ink out condition.
The function for detecting the remaining ink level will be disabled.
Replace the empty ink cartridge immediately after the printing.
The resulting print quality is not satisfactory, if printing is continued under the ink out condition.
I hope this information will help you

MP 160 Canon printer, error code E5. I just want to use this machine as a scanner. Do I still need to load the cartirages?


Yes, the unit will not operate without the cartridges.
E5-5 The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

First, download the software at http://www.box.net/shared/4yblbn34kg

Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by
- unplug cable
- press and hold "power" button
- plug cable
- press "resume" and release
- release the "power" button
At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware

Run the software.

oke
