If you have windows service pack 2 running on your computer you will need to download new drivers for this to work Had the same issue a few years ago with same printer, drivers are incompatiable with SP2. Copy this link and click on external mirror to download drivers. See how you go, you might need to search for some more if this one doesn't work. http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Canon-PIXMA-MP160-MP-Drivers-xp64-101-Download-50482.html

My epson t13 printer doesnt go printing cannot detect the cartridge what should i do?


To rectify this error with your printer, first of all, you need to snap the cartridge in and out a few times. If this doesn't work, you need to remove the printer cartridge from the printer and then clean off the foil contacts. You need to be careful while doing this and do not wipe the nozzles from where the ink comes out. Insert the cartridge and switch on the printer. Now your problem might be fixed. If this does not work, it is better to inform the manufacturer or contact online technical support experts.

I expect the cartridge is blocked unless it prints a test page alright. If the software shows a working printer, try running the cleaning programme.

Dell Inspiron 531 (desktop) won?t turn on/boot


You've either got a bad motherboard or a bad processor (I'd lean to the motherboard being bad). I would honestly take this into a computer repair shop and have them check both.

I have a Lexmark X63 printer. I have installed new printer cartridges. Now the operator panel display window says change all ink. Now what do I do?


Printers are a very temperamental device. They will take a few tries before working most of the time, just because they can. My advice is just to take out the printer cartridges, turn off the printer, turn it back on, and install them back in. If that doesn't work, uninstall them again, turn off the power, unplug the adapter, and do it all over again.

Good luck!

It is possible that your ink cartridge is damaged. Try using an old ink cartridge that worked before and try to print again.Even if the ink cartridge you are using is full of ink, when sensitive electrical components are damaged, it wouldn't work.

You can also try using a different printer to rule out the possibility that your computer is the problem.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...


Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.
