Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Blueraen hello! I'm experiencing the same problem as wannabeme82. Right now the Alarm light is constantly blinking orange. The LCD screen keeps flashing, "E . 2 .7" . And when I try to print something message pops up that says, "The ink absorber is full. Contact the service center". I have no idea what or where the ink absorber is, or who to contact to get this fix. Basically the printer is useless at this point. Please help. Thanks

What is error code 6500?


This is an error indicating a problem with the Logic Board Assembly. It's probably not worth fixing, with printer prices being fairly low.\

According to the MP800 Service Manual:

2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (COPY button), or
Alarm LED Lit in Orange)

Service call errors are indicated by the number of cycles the Alarm LED and COPY button blink, and the corresponding error
code is displayed on the LCD.

*Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (COPY button) - 20 times

*Other hardware error - Error

*Error Code - [6500]

*Conditions - The PCI bus error is detected by the ASIC.

*Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y

Alarm lights keep blinking after I changed my printer ink.


E5 means cartridges error - to fix press the "stop\reset" button for 5-7 seconds and then release it.

You can also try this:

1) With the printer power turned off but connected to a power source, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button.
(DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and
Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light
alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the specified number of time(s)according to the function listed in the table below. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and
Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

4 times----Green (Power)------Waste ink counter resetting
