Hi

Here's how to replace ink cartridge.

Make sure the printer is turn on. Place your fingers under the LED control panel and lift the scanning unit. The cartridges inside the printer will automatically slide to the left, for easy access. Remove the empty cartridge by pushing the front of the cartridge downward. It will snap out of its cradle. Pull out the cartridge and replace the new ink cartridge. Insert the new cartridge. With the front of the cartridge tilted down, push the back into the cradle. Lift the front upward, and the cartridge will snap into place. Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help. Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

Manufacturing


Canon is still making ink cartridges for printers that came out 15 years ago. I doubt that they will stop making cartridges for the MP160 (which uses the same cartridges as about 15 other models) any time soon.
