Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm hoping you can help me out with the problem I'm having printing off my MP160.
I'm getting this message when I try to print :
Error number : 300. The printer does not respond. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer.
The on/off lamp in the corner is on and the computer seems to be properly connected from the back port of the printer to the USB port on my Mac.
So what else could it be?
I've been able to use this printer before without any problems, now I'm suddenly unable to print!
Please help if you can!
This problem drove me nuts for an entire day - neither my Mac nor my Windows machine would print after resetting the ink levels using MPTools. I kept trying things until, as a last resort, I decided to reinstall the drivers (which did not seem to me like it would do anything as the printer was working fine before in the two machines with the existing drivers) Voila, that fixed it. I had to reinstall the OS X and the Windows drivers. In the Windows side I had to delete the existing printer drivers first, then reboot. On reboot Windows discovered the printer and reinstalled the driver. It started working again.
It may be that driver re-installation clear certain caches in memory - only Canon knows.
Next time I am getting an HP printer.

According to my list error E 300 means servicing required. how much that would be is anyone's guess.
