Canon Printer Reset

Here are instructions:

The MPTool is designed for service works with the printer Canon MP-Series
when in Low-Level mode. This is NOT the same as "service mode"

Currently supported for
MP150, MP160, MP170, MP180, MP450, MP460. MP150, MP160, MP170, MP180, MP450, MP460.

BEFORE activating need to

To activate LOW LEVEL mode:

1. Unplug the power cord to the printer for a moment.

2. Then, hold down the on/off button while plugging in the power cord.
Keep holding the on/off button down.

3. Right away the green power light (in the button) will turn on solid.
Keep holding the on/off button down.

4. Press and release the Stop/Reset button.
(the button w a red triangle in a red circle)

5. Now you can release the on/off button.

The green power light will go off and the yellow Alarm light will stay on.
Now you can run MPTOOL and resetting the ink counters will work.

Your printer will show up as "another" Cannon printer.
When you finish you must again unplug the power cord for a moment
and then just plug it back in. After you do this, you'll see both
printers listed in Printers (control panel) and one will show as
offline. You can then rename this offline printer as "Low Mode Canon"
or whatever works for you so you don't mix it up with other functions.
