    There is no STOP/RESET button on my canon pixma MP500.
    Maybe the name is different in the swedish version.
    So i tried out every button on the hardware, no respons at all.

    The hardware says: “there is no ink”.
    But there is.. the cartridges is brand new.
    So what shall I do??????????????????????

    Sorry, there is, my bad! It’s the button with the red mark to the far right.

    Stop/Reset button is the most top-right button with the red triangle inside the red circle.
    Anyway, after step 1 it shows white LED screen with CANON letters (I hope it is Service Mode) and after step 2.2 it does not print anyting, just fed some millimeters of paper, stops and turns off.
