  4. jj says:

    I have the problem with my iP2200 when I try to go through the above steps. In the last step (CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER) the software (iPTool) gets stuck. Can someone be of any help?

  5. Fauzan says:

    @jj any two software can be use to reset canon iP2200

    If using general tool, to run general tool, all file attributes should not be read only.

    If using iPTool software, occasionally iPTool not 100% support at selected printer.

  6. jj says:

    Fauzan, thank you for your answer. I tried the both – iPTool and GeneralTool, but with the same result. The software got stuck in the operating system (Not responding) and nothing happened.
    Is there some other solution for reseting the waste ink counter? For example using HW buttons on the printer?
    (for Canon iP2200)

  7. Fauzan says:

    @jj, Manual Reset Canon IP2200

    1. turn off printer and remove power cord.
    2. press and hold power button.
    3. while pressing power button insert plug the power cable.
    4. Press resume button 2 times.
    5. release Power button.

    Maybe it help 😀

    I have a Pixma iP5200 and it flashes three times for paper jam. There WAS a jam, but I’m absolutely sure that I’ve got all paper out. I’ve tried the instruction for resetting, but I makes no sence?!

    # Turn off the Printers.
    # Hold Resume button click POWER (I hold the upper button and press Power)
    # Hold button RESUME, release POWER (I still hold the upper button and release hold)
    # Then press the button again twice RESUME. (I release the upper button and press it twice)
    # Release all the buttons. (How can I release any button? I’m currently not pressing any?)
    # Indicator led in green and stay green. (nope)

    How do I fix this *three flashes* problem?

  46. Fz says:

    @Sherly Tan, To solve your problem you reset your printer. You can use the reset method mentioned above. If reset method above does not work you can use following reset method:

    1. Turn on your printer
    2. Click resume button one time
    3. Turn off and then turn your printer on.
    4. If the printer normal again continue to reset the printer using iPTool or service tool program (optional)

    This method work on my Canon iP1700 when the printer blinking (7 times yellow/orange and One time Green)

  47. own says:

    I had reset the printer manually before using the software. Unplug and plug back the cable at the behind printer and the same time hold the power button and press once the resume button. The printer on in stable but I need to reset the waste ink counter permanently. I don’t want to open the printer every time need me to unplug and plug back cable and hold the power button and press the resume. For information I’m using Win 7, I think may be it the cause.
