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

Canon Pixma mp160 cartridge slams to right side e5 error

I have tried to reset the printer, I even purchased brand new Canon ink cartridges hoping that would resolve the issue. They are snapped in place properly, but not reading as such.

When I turn the power on the cartridges slide noisily to the right and side and ram something loudly, then it sounds like it goes back a bit then rams again! What in the world is going on?!

AND is there any way to use the scanner if I can't resolve this issue without sending it back to Canon to be repaired?

What is error e5 in mp 198 printer


E5 - The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed , or the ink cartridges are not installed properly..

  • In certain models of Canon Pixma printers such as the Canon MP160 and Canon MP150, you may receive an E5 error when trying to print. In this state, you will not be able to use any of the functions of your printer. The error itself is an ink cartridge error. It may be that you are using generic or off-brand ink cartridges in your Canon Pixma printer. Canon Pixma printers do not work with other brands of print cartridges; invest in Canon brand ink cartridges and this should take care of your problem.

    Whats the meaning of error in canon e5 error?


    "E5: The ink cartridge(s) is not installed. / The ink cartridge(s) cannot be recognized.

    The ink cartridge may not be installed properly, or an unsupported ink cartridge may be installed.
    Install a recommended ink cartridge.

    Make sure to install both ink cartridges even when you set the machine to use only one ink cartridge in printing.
    If one of the ink cartridges is missing, this error can occur."

    My MP160 has an error code E5 and nothing I do will move it


    have you installed a new ink cartridge? one of your inks may have been dead.

    You need to use a genuine cannon cartridge since cannon printers does not accept generic inks.

    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.
