Reset Canon Printers Manually


Reset a Canon printer is to reset the printer after previously changing parts, so that new parts that are installed, can be read correctly. Examples of replacements that require a reset are replacing the Logic board ass'y, Carriage motor, Carriage unit, Print head, Sheet feed unit, Timing sensor unit, Paper feed roller unit, Paper feed motor, Waste Ink absorber kit, etc.

When the Canon printer error and must be replaced parts, after the part has been replaced, the next step is to reset the Canon printer so that new parts that have just been installed can be read correctly. Of the many parts replacement done, the most frequently replaced part is the waste ink absorber. When the waste ink absorber is full, after the waste ink absorber is replaced, the next step is to reset the waste ink counter value.

Reset Canon Printers Manually

Based on information in the Canon Service Manual, resetting the waste ink counter can be done in two ways, reset manually and reset with the Service Tool. For manual reset, done by pressing the Power/Start/ON/OFF button, and Stop/Reset/Resume/Cancel, in a certain amount which is carried out alternately.

Reset can be done if the printer is in Service Mode. So after the waste ink absorber has been replaced, the next step is to bring the printer into Service Mode. After the printer is in Service Mode, the next step is to reset the printer (Manual or Service Tool).

For the printer to be in Service Mode, after the printer's USB cable is connected to the PC/Laptop, and the printer is turned off, press and release the Power/Start/ON/OFF button, and Stop/Reset/Resume/Cancel, in a certain amount which is carried out alternately. In principle, to enter Service Mode on all Canon printers is almost the same, either reset is done by Manual or Service Tool. Here's how to enter Service Mode on a Canon printer.

The button is used
- Power/Start/ON/OFF, adjust the buttons available on the printer.
- Stop/Reset/Resume/Cancel, adjust the buttons available on the printer.

Service Mode Operation Procedure:
1. Connect the printer's USB cable to the PC/Laptop, and the printer is off.
2. Press and hold the Stop/Reset/Resume/Cancel button (DO NOT release the button), then
3. Press and hold the Power/Start/ON/OFF button (DO NOT release the button), then

Canon printers have two waste ink absorbers namely Main waste ink absorber, and Platen waste ink absorber. However, not all printers have two waste ink absorbers. Sometimes a printer only has one waste ink absorber, which is the Main waste ink absorber. From the list of printers above, we will group them into two, namely printers that only have Main waste ink absorber, and printers that have Main and Platen waste ink absorber.

A printer that has a Main waste ink absorber
  • Canon Bubble Jet i Series: i70, i80 (3 times)
  • Canon Pixma iP Series: iP100, iP3000, iP4000, iP4000R, iP4200, iP4300, iP4500, iP5000, iP5200, iP5200R, iP5300, iP6000D, iP6600D, iP8500 (2 times)
  • Canon Pixma MX Series: MX850 (2 times)

Note: So to reset waste ink counter, there are 3 different procedures. Use the procedure that corresponds to the printer that was repaired. For step 9) and so on, all printers are the same. So, the difference occurs in step 8) that is when doing a waste ink counter reset.


9).   Insert paper (A4 or Letter), then press the Stop/Reset/Resume/Cancel button 2 times (see table 1), then press the Power/Start/ON/OFF button to execute. Wait for the printer to print "EEPROM information print" after resetting. Compare "EEPROM information print" before and after reset. See the value of D (Waste ink amount). If after reset D=000.0 means that the reset has been successfully performed. After a successful reset, the printer will return to "Table 1. Menu Selection Mode".

11).  Press the Power/Start/ON/OFF button to turn off the printer, wait 15 seconds then turn ON the printer. Done.


Waste ink counter resets can be done in two ways, manually and by Service Tool. For resets that are done manually, divided into two methods (Method #1 and Method #2). For printers that use Method #2, in step 8) they are divided into 3 procedures. This post was written referring to Canon's Printer Service Manual document.
