    Chances are, if the top few searches for this hardware error don't work, it's about time to get a new Canon all-in-one at PC SHOW 2010. .

    On this topic, my MP160 is still going strong.

    E42 means scanner error. May require a hard reset(disconnect from power supply for 30 min). Otherwise may require factory reset procedure to be applied. Follow the steps below:
