I have 2 Canon MP160 printers. Big mistake: they now both refuse to print or scan, showing E5 error.
I spend around 30 USD here in Asia to replace the black cartridge with an original. None of the 2 printers does even recognize it!!
I'm fed up with this hardware:
- unable to recognize its own genuine - and expensive - cartridges
- deciding when you may or may not print (and blocking your work) according to its own feeling it's time to send you to the shop to be milked.
These 2 printers will soon end up in a landfill (even if they are almost new) and I'll search for customer-friendly models (not wallet-lovers).
