Error E13 / E16 On Canon Printer MPxxx (MP198/MP256/MP287)

Yesterday, my customer ask me to fix his Canon printer MP287. I’ve check the printer, there was error code E16 on the printer indicator. The printer could’t be operated and on the screen, there was said that the ink may have run out of ink.

How to fix this E16 ? E13 error very easily. Press and hold the reset button for 5 seconds, then the indicator will spin for some time and after that the printer is ready for use.


This error code often occurs after a cartridge refilled and placed again in the printer.
