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

1 Answer

I keep getting this message from my computer when I turn on my Canon MP160 printer: Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43). It was working perfectly a few days ago then it suddenly wasn't being recognized. I tried switching the usb port it was plugged into, unplugged the usb cable in the computer and printer, uninstalled the USB host controllers, and tried installing the print driver from the Canon website. None of this has changed the result. Windows tells me that if the driver doesn't work when reinstalled then to replace the device because it has malfunctioned. There has to be a better way then having to dump my printer. Please help me fix it.

Code 43 is the death code - the unit that is generating it has stopped responding to the commands from the pc, it's dead and nothing will bring it back to life.
Nothing left to do but buying a new printer.

Canon mp160 printer E5 flashing error?


1) With the printer powered off but connected to a power source, press the Power button while pressing and holding the Stop/ Reset button.
2) When the Power LED is lit, press the Stop/Reset button two times while pressing and holding the Power button.
3) When releasing the Power button and the Stop / Reset button (regardless of order), the printer will move into a service mode. (Waiting for menu selection)
4) When the LED lights in green, press the Stop/Reset button 4 times.

The above will get you to Service Mode (and clear the Waste Ink Counter if you wish) and is supposed to work for MP160 also.
Caution if your waste ink pad is full you could overflow if ignored.


Some of the new carts reportedly have fuses which blow if the ink gets too low, denying any further refilling.

To use refills, you will probably have to turn off your Status Monitor.
Go to your printer's Maintenance section.
