I've just bought a second hand MP160,which I only intended to used as a scanner.
I can't get the scanner to operate due to an E5 error on the display,and a 2,114,0 error which appears as a pop-up when I attempt to scan.
Although empty,the cartridges are of the correct type and are seated properly.
When I remove the cartridges completely the error codes do not change.
Is an empty cartridge enough to cause this issue?
My cartridges was empty and I just refilled the black one and took the color one out, becouse I don`t use it that often. Now an error E16 appeared and the color ink alarm is on, but it won`t do anything now. I checked the manual and can`t seem to find anything that helped. Please help.

You can download some of the drivers and such from Canon. I installed a used MP160 on a Mac by downloading the scanner driver, printer driver, MP Navigato program, and "on screen manual" (a help file). There are similar downloads for Windows. Unfortunately they don't have the OmniPage SE software for download so you can't do OCR.
Empty cartridges may cause this error. Here is the error code list for your printer
E2-2 = No paper (ASF) E3-3 = Paper jam E4 = No ink E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet E22 = Carriage error E23 = Paper feed error E24 = Purge unit error E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error E26 = Internal temperature rise error E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full E28 = Ink cartridge temperature rise error - E29 = EEPROM error E33 = Paper feed position error E35 15 = USB Host VBUD overcurrent error - USB E37 17 = Abnormal motor driver error E40 20 = Other hardware error E42 22 = Scanner error If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

I got this Error 2,114,0 with my MP210 and none of the above fixes worked. This is how I have got it working again: Press and hold the maintenance (picure of spanner and screw driver) button and the reset button ( Inverted red triangle) together for five seconds or more. The flashing error code 1 and 6 will then stop flashing and replaced by a print copy no 1. The printer/scanner is reset and the scanner works.
