Before you try this, put a couple of drops of resin-free oil such as 3 In One (sewing machine oil) or a tiny bit of penetrating lube on the shiny rod on which the carriage rides.
The original lube may have either dried out or has turned into a paste-lube gunk that is making the carriage hard to move.

If the 'rubber band' has teeth on the inside, it is the printhead drive belt and it may be stripped.
If the printhead centers for cartridge changes when opening a cover, let it center, pull the power cord out of the wall and carefully attempt to move the carriage by hand.
If you hear a similar noise, then the belt is stripped and will have to be replaced.
I'm not familiar with your model so can't advise if this is a do-it-yourself job or not.

Flash won't pop up all the way open.


What has happened is a tiny little spring has broken inside or gotten out of position. Rather than try to fix that, get a thin rubberband (with circular, not flat, cross section) of the proper length as determined as follows. When you turn on the camera, select "force flash", and then half-press the shutter button, you'll be able to lift the flash unit with a fingernail under the crack separating it from the rest of the camera. Once open, put your thin rubberband under the black plastic "ridge" at the front of the flash unit; this ridge is just above the glass-enclased flash tube. As you pull the thin rubberband toward the back of the camera, put a half-rotation into it so that the rubberband crosses over it self (makes an X ) halfway back. One of the X-loops is under the ridge. Put the other X-loop around and under the eyeball-viewing protrusion on the back of the camera. If the rubberband is short enough (but not too short), it will have enough stretchy force to hold the flash unit in the fully open ("up") position. If you're lucky, it may also pop it open when the flash is called for. If not, use your fingernail and just let the thin rubberband hold it in the up position. It works for me.

My roller dont take in the paper


MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error. The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix. When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

Error message: Service error 5100 on my new Canon MP160 Printer


no prob try -- As a technician, I have worked on tons of printers. This particular error had stumped me for a while, but I finally found the cause. As others had pointed out before, it can have alot to do with some obstruction in the print path, the gears, or ink on the clear plastic encoder strip. You're on the right track - I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on) Hope this helps some of you out.
