How to Perform a Reset on a Canon Printer?

To reset your Canon printer it is important for you to run a power cycle, reset the ink levels, and lastly run a hard reset. In this section, we will be providing you the steps to perform all three in brief.

Power Reset Canon Printer

Before going to the hard reset, let’s know how you can power reset your printer to avoid any temporary communication issues. To power reset your Canon printer, follow the steps below thoroughly.

  • Unplug the printer from the power source and disconnect the printer totally. Now, wait for some time.
  • After that, plug the printer to a wall power outlet so that you can get rid of a problematic power strip as an operating issue.
  • Plugin the ethernet cable and run a test document to see if the problem you were facing (for which you opted for a reset) is resolved or not. This is because in many instances a power reset may fix your printer without any difficulty. After that, clear the printer queue to start afresh. 
  • To circumvent the overloading of the queue and printer, print one document at a time.

Ink-Level Reset

You may encounter issues with the printer if the ink level shows incorrect reading and assumes that the ink within the printer is not sufficient enough to process the printing. 

Thus to resolve it, it is very important to perform a manual ink level reset. To do so, we recommend you to follow the steps given below.

  • Look for Stop/Reset button on the screen of your printer.
  • Keep in mind that in some models of printers this Stop/Reset button is in the form of “Resume”.
  • Press and hold the said button for some time so that the printer could continue despite the ink level read error. 

If the problem persists after the ink level reset as well, then perform a hard reset. Follow the next section to know its exact steps.

Perform a Hard Reset

If you are facing errors continually with your Canon printer then it is most likely that it requires a hard reset. To do so, all you have to do is look for the “Stop” button and hold it for some time. Once the printer alarm sequence starts, release the button after the alarm flashes for 19 times so that you can restore the factory default settings. Besides, performing this step will also erase any customized network setting. 

Lastly, uninstall the printer from your computer network and install it again. This must make your printer absolutely new.
