Printer Canon MP160 - Error 27


Hello everybody,


Just a quick question off to you, perhaps you'll help me to find a solution

I have this (up until last week fully functional) printer Canon Pixma MP160.

It keeps on displaying ''Error 27''. I tried out every single suggestion available here on the internet - have done a great deal of a research here on the internet (cleaning ink absorption pads, resetting printer's system), nothing works. The printer was a good machine, but now it does not react well to any of my attempts to put it right back into operational mode.

Any suggestions on how to get it up and running again.

Thank you so much to all of you.

Hi Radim1983,


Please disconnect the power cord for 24 hours.  If the error returns after waiting that period, your PIXMA MP160 would require service.  You are eligible for Canon's Upgrade Program. This is for out of warranty units which have been diagnosed to require service, or for some reason are incompatible with a new or upgraded system. This option allows you a one-time opportunity to purchase a replacement product, discounted from the list price.

If you would like to take part in this option, please call our Sales Department at (866) 443-8002 Monady throuigh Saturday, 9am to 9pm. Let them know you have been working with technical support and the Canon Upgrade Program was offered.
