Unplug the printer for at least 2 minutes from the wall.

2. Plug the printer back in but leave the printer turned off.

3. Enter Service Mode

a. Hold Stop/Reset button and the Power button for 5 seconds

b. Release Stop/Reset button but continue to hold Power button

c. Press Stop/Reset twice

d. Release the Power Button

e. Wait for the light to stop flashing. The printer is now in service mode. The display may be blank or simply read "Canon" during this time.

4. Do an EPROM reset.

a. Press the Stop/Reset button 3 times.

b. Press the Power button twice. The printer will save the changes and then it will reboot. A little cd/dvd icon will appear in the LCD screen.

3. The printer will probably now require the same setting up as when you first unpacked it. That is, you will need to select a language and let the printer do a head alignment.

The printer is now enabled.

How do i clear a E-2 and a E-4 code on my Canon MP-160


For E, 2:

Reload the paper correctly and press [Black] or [Color].

For E, 3:

If the paper has jammed in the machine, clear the jam, reolad the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

If these steps do not reslove the issue, turn the power off, unplug the printer from the power supply,(wall socket), let rest 5 - 10 minutes, then plug back in, turn on printer and see if this has cleared the error messages.

Canon MP830 will not print Error code 5C10, And 5100 donaldbetty@juno.com


5C10 seems to indicate a paper jam. 5100 indicates either a paper jam or ink tanks not seated properly.

A) Paper jam: There is a rear cover on this model. Many paper jams cannot be seen from the outside. Sometimes even a scrap of paper from a previous jam will disrupt the paper path.

B) Follow your manual for installation of the ink tanks. Remove and replace the ink tanks carefully following the instructions.

C) Should these remedies not fix the problem, you can try resetting the device:

1) Press and hold the <On/Off> button until the display on the machine goes blank. (If this is unsuccessful, unplug the power cord).

2) Wait approx. 10 seconds and power back on. Wait until the printer completes its startup routine before trying another print job.

3) If solution fails, your MP 830 may require repair

Message reads: the paper is jammed clear the paper and press OK


Hi,
Even if a small piece of paper stuck inside the printer you ll get this msg.  So what you have to do is if you have a Air blower or vaccum cleaner blow air inside the printer,  If any piece of paper is stuck inside it will come out and you won't get that msg again.  Try this and sure it will work...!

Flashing E3 error code for a paper jam


I had the same problem with my mp 160, Error message was blinking. I tried to print but the printer would take 1/10 of the whole page and stop, even though rollers were moving. My solution for this was to take a piece of thin cardbord(I used a magazine cover), cut it in a size of A4, put it in printer, printed it and when the rollers start moving I forcebly pushed the cardboard through. Now it seems to work fine. Hope it does for you.
