    Tried this with my MX310. Only thing I needed to do differently was press the reset button twice while holding the power cord down, instead of just press and hold. Followed all the rest of the directions and it works! Thanks :)

  13. anjovat says:

    Tried this with my MX320 but it doesn’t seem to work. It goes into “service mode – idle” but won’t do anything else. Nothing comes up when I press ‘>’. Please help!

  14. Morten says:

    You actually have to press the cancel button 3 times while you can see that the light under the triangle goes on and off. This will bring you to the correct factory mode

  15. Morten says:

    Okay. correction. After i have tried it a lot off times. Pressing the reset button twice actually took me to the correct factory mode and it suddenly turned into idle. Maybe it was because i lifted and closed the coved?

    como posso fazer o reset a estaçao de limpeza de uma canon MX300

    Translatedd:
    goodnight.
    how do I reset the station cleaning a canon MX300

  23. femtobyte says:

    It took a few times to get it right. I had to push the Red Stop/Reset button 2x, to get Factory1. If you press it 3x, like another site said to, you get Factory2, which may confuse others as much as it did me. Also, be sure to leave lid open until the cartridges are all the way over on left side so you can remove them correctly :P It takes a couple min for them to stop sliding left and right but they eventually settle on the left.

    I’ve got to add here.

    After all the post and repeat instructions NOT 1 post can I find on the web or in here that states *YOU MUST HAVE THE ORIGINAL CARTRIDGES INSTALLED*

    However, it may be possible that my compatible carts are simply no good.

    I put my original carts back in and it worked right away.

    Jeeeez, day wasted.
