When your MP160 stops printing due to low ink levels or empty cartridges, the only way to reset the ink system is to replace the cartridges. The MP160 printer uses PG-40 black and CL-41 colour printer cartridges. Buy replacement cartridges from office supply and computer parts retailers, or order them direct from Canon. Replace the cartridges at home and you can be printing again in minutes.
