I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

You should be able to install the Vista drivers for it.

Hey Folks, I have a Canon MP160 and I am trying to print photos, but they always come out redder that I want, I found some NTSC Color Bars and printed them and Magenta is purple and red is deep orange, I did a monitor calibration with a Spyder Pro and thought that corrected the problem but to no avail, any suggestions?
 

A:Canon Pixma MP160

what kind of printer are using
are you using the correct profile for the type of paper

getting a print to look like it does on your monitor requires carefull calibration and printer profiling

My mp160 printer/scanner has no power when on switch is operated. Does this printer have an internal fuse and if so how do i get at it? The power cord tests OK.
 

A:Canon Pixma MP160 printer failure

i have a printer in same model series. the scanner part isnt all that good when you have to scan big items & after 6 months the writing head on the mem. card reader died

as for your prob i can only say this if its still warrented take it in. if its not dont bother with trying replace parts because it would cost less to replace the entire printer than paying more for a single part. but if it was a power surge that fried it theres really no way to fix that unless you have an store issued extended warrenty.

I have just downloaded the MP navigator in order to scan from my Pixma MP160, which I have had for 3 years now, but have never used it for scanning. The icon appeared on my desktop, but when I press the scan button and I choose MP navigator as the program to use, it tells me that the driver is not installed. How is this possible? I downloaded it from the Canon site and I do not see any separate downloads for drivers...

Does anyone know what I should do?

Thanks

I attempted to change an ink cartridge and the print head belt came off, but then as I was replacing it, I managed to dislodge a clear strip, one end marked L (for left, I assume) with what appears to be 2 magnetic dots, one at each end, for a stop position. The strip is intact, but I can't seem to find where the right side of this strip attaches to the rail, at least not without taking the whole machine apart. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance for your time and input.

I have a Canon i850 printer which I have immensely enjoyed using these past four+ years. For one thing, I've never had even one paper-jam during that time.

My understanding always has been that it is best to have separate components, so that's why I've always owned a dedicated printer. However, it appears that the present-day trend is more toward all-in-one units. Actually, I'm in the market only for a printer, but if the Canon MP600 all-in-one is technologically advanced far beyond my i850, then I would strongly considering buying one.

The MP600 has a scanner (which I don't need, although it would provide me with a back-up) and it has several modern features of convenience which my i850 doesn't have. What I would especially like to know is whether or not the MP600 produces appreciably better results with both text and photos than my i850. Also, would it be faster and cheaper in the long run than the MP600? While quality of results is more important than anything else, speed, economy, and convenience also enter into the equation.

(I was also considering the Canon PIXMA iP6700D photo printer, but from what I've read so far it appears that the MP600 all-in-one is more highly-regarded.)

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has an opinon on this matter. Thank you very much.

Hello helpful people,

First attempt to refill the color cartridge for MP160 printer, the orange 'Color' light goes on, and it refuses to print in color. No error message. No window popping up to say you are out of ink, it just merrily prints in black ink only. (Yes, I have it set to use both cartidges, not just the black one).

How do you reset this? (Manual says press the color button....this sometimes works for that printing attempt only...but is not working in this case.)

Or better yet, turn of the Ink Level Detection entirely.

I have spent 2 hours Googling this, people claim to have answers, which are all relevant to other printers, and do not actually work for the MP 160. Much more time messing with it and trying to decifer the manual.

I don't want to hear, 'temporarily swap in a different cartridge, to make it think your old one is new'. Then I have an expensive new cartridge drying up while I am using the first one.

Related question: There is a 'maintenance' button (not described by the manual of course) which cycles through 9 letters (not described by the manual of course).

I believe one of these letters may mean, 'turn off the lying, useless, infuriating Ink Level Detector', but I have no way to know which one.

Somewhere there should be a list of what all 9 letters mean, but my attempts to find it on the All Knowing Net have failed....does this magical list exist? I see forums where people beg for this list, but now... Read more

Hello,

I bought my PC with XP pre-installed just over 2 years ago and have had no real problems until recently. A few weeks ago I bought a new Canon MP160 printer/scanner. Installation went smoothly and no apparent problems ...

BUT starting yesterday I started getting crashes (all the way to Blue Screen of Death). To the point where I had two crashes in one hour.

Since adding the MP160 was my only recent change I've uninstalled the drivers. So far so good, no more crashes. I'm certainly a long way from proving that the MP160 is the source of my problems, but it certainly would appear to be a tenable hypothesis - though the fact that the problems didn't start immediately might be a counter argument.

I do need to print - but nothing that won't wait a week!

So two questions:

1. Any reports of similar problems? (I've searched this site and did a quick google, but nothing apparent. I've also emailed Canon - but its a public holiday).

2. Any advice for when I reinstall the drivers? (Or even good things to do before that point?)

Anticipating basic suggestions .....

I have McAfee installed and run regular scans automatically. I just ran a manual scan - 19 cookies found but nothing else.

I've cleaned out temporary files and the like. No shortage of space on my disk.

I'm tempted to do a disc defrag (haven't run one for a while), but I'd like to feel a lot more confident that I'm have removed the cause of the crashes b... Read more

I have even tried as a last resort the MP Navigator for MP960 printer but I receive the same error.

If everything were running normal, all I would do is press the Scan button on the printer and this MP Navigator is supposed to automatically run and help me with the scan function. When I do press this button, there is no response at all. I have even restarted after install but to no avail. I right-click the icon for MP Navigator and change the compatibility mode to XP and to start program as an administrator and result is always the same, 'The scanner driver supported for this software is not installed. Install it and then retry.' I search the Canon website for this scanner driver but there is nothing! Help! Please!

HI,
Possible repair for E3 warning code PIXMA MP160 Paper Jam which does not exist.

Have you run a 3 paper clean procedure? if not try that.
Try a thin cardboard A3 size and run that through the printer.

If this has not fixed the E3 jam, then I call it a E3 phantom Jam.

It seems to be a serious problem for Canon PIXMA MP160 printers.
Several web searches shows me this is a big problem.
Finding help seems to be very scarce on the ground with this one.

However, today (as I'm also suffering from the same fault), after seeking help and being told, take the printer to a service agent (100Klm away) I baulked.

I have taken my PIXMA printer apart 3 times now, so this access procedure does work.

Remove the power cable, and the USB cable.

Take the printer to a solid table.

Beware there are many small screws that have to be located.

Warning, this may not fix your MP160 PIXMA, you might break a wire, drop something, or loose a screw, its your responsibility what you do from this point on, not mine.

WARNING

OK, YOU need to take your printer COMPLETLY APART to "fix?" this E3 error.
You will need

I use Canon Pixma printer with Windows 7. When I want to scan and e-mail the colours of my computer change radically. I cannot get a full picture reproduced either. Only part of it is reproduced. I had to do a system restore to get the computer to remove the ugly colours. This is the second time that it happened. Please help.
 

A:Canon Pixma

As regards not being able to reproduce a complete picture, try reducing the 'PPI' setting in your scanner software prior to scanning. Whilst 300 ppi is considered the optimum setting for photo scans which you intend to print, that's way too high for an email. Try scanning at 150 ppi or even 100 ppi if it's only for an email attachment.

The scanning time will then be much shorter and there will only be half as much data for the PC to cope with (compared to scanning at 300 ppi).

I updated my driver for this printer in order to use it with a new VISTA computer. In doing this, my XP laptop, can no longer use this printer. Is there a simple solution to this?

A:Canon pixma MP 780

Updating drivers usually doesn't affect the hardware itself. Its strange that it simply stopped working because you installed vista drivers on another computer. My Pixma was simply a plug-and-play from my vista desktop to my XP laptop.

Can you provide more detail? Does the computer detect the printer but it simply doesn't print? Or is the printer undetected completely? Maybe you could try uninstalling then installing new drivers for it.

Hi,

I have installed driver (b6C05MUx.exe) for Canon Pixma iP5200 which
Vista does not recognize.
The driver was downloaded from Canon and is compatible with my Vista.
Please advice how to make the printer work.

Thanks,
Martti

Bought a Canon MP 750 on Wednesday. Seems to print well, but not happy with the results of walk up copy and also scan to computer/print.

Original printing from the computer, print alignment, print nozzle checks etc are all OK. It seems there is a problem with the scanning - copies come out significantly less colour intense, at times with bits even missing from the copy.

Rang Canon for support and returned machine to store on Friday & got a second one. It seems to fare no better.

At this stage I will be ringing Canon again on Monday - but in the meantime I'm interested to hear from anyone else with this machine.

Can anyone tell me what happens when you select the copy button, and then "colour"? Do you get the following message:

Colour copying......

or do you get

Scanning.....

followed by a request for the next page or to click OK to exit?
This then followed by

Colour copying....

as above?

The reason I ask is that on the first machine we only ever got "colour copying" followed by the scan and the print out.

On the second machine, the first two times we did a copy it gave us the scan message on the display first, followed by the copy message. However from the third copy on it has always only ever been "colour copying...."

If I use the software to scan into the computer I can set different scanning resolutions....but when I print out I don't see any marked improvement.

I have used my Canon MP500 for two years. It prints OK but it won't scan. About 18 months ago it completely disappeared from my computer. I tried to take the computer back to a date when it worked but it wouldn't allow me to do so. After reloading it twice it finally worked again. Now it has disappeared again. When I find Omnipage the message comes up "The parameter is incorrect"
Why does it suddenly disappear? I can't think I have done anything to make it do so.
