I have a Canon ip2000

Is There a "Initialize to Factory Settings"
procedure anyone knows about?

(I used the Waste Ink Container reset message
I've found here - Seemed to have worked, but now I have a different problem:

I keep getting a 'Two Flashes' message
*Orange-Green; orange-green" pause - repeat

The Quick Start Guide says that means 'Out of Paper'
But that's not the case

Pressing RESUME button has no effect.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks - Great forum

Thanks for the info on the "waste ink tank full" error reset. It worked like a charm. I emptied the waste ink tank and flushed out the tank and tubing but after I put everything back together the error was still there. I was about to toss the printer but decided to google the problem when I came across this post. Unbelievably simple! Thanks again. - Anonymous
Awesome.... THANK YOU!!!!!! Last time I had this happen I had to get a new printer as I was told it would cost me megabucks to have it reset!!!!!Years down the track it happened again.... God bless you for the help! - Anonymous
This code worked for me on my Canon S600, BUT! only after I REMOVED THE PRINTEDHEAD. Entered code, replaced printhead. Printer works fine now.

To fix ip2000 models go to www.cyber-ink.com/member-canon.html. This is the only method that worked on mine. - Anonymous
Unplug or switch off the printer from the electricity supply. Hold down the start button on printer, and reconnect to electricity supply. Hold start button for 2/3 secs. and release.
Hey presto, everything's fine. Done this several times (about 5) over the last year, still working.

The way it works is to PRESS the ON/OFF button plus the RESUME button at the same time, keep your fingers on both bottons all the time THEN let go of the resume button and press it 2 times and only then let go of the OFF/ON button (which you have been helding down while pressing the resume button 2 times). Then INDIVIDUALLY,first press and release the resume button 4 times and the power button 2 times after this. Works like a charm !

Thanks Montanelas!!!

You don't really have to empty the tank. There is no tank. It's a large sponge. A recent post by a guy who replaced his bemoaned the fact that it only had a little bit of ink soaked in and he wasted 4 hours replacing it. Reset instructions are all over this thread and the forum. I'm not going to post them again.

Thank you for the info about the tank not being there actually. I wondered if it was just a setting or what. Now, as far reseting the printer tank full, I tried all methods getting no where and then I read the post that said to go to www.cyber-ink.com/member-canon.html

I went to the site, I saw reset for the ip2000 and I followed those directions to the t and it reset and is working beautifully now so this site was a plus to my favorites! thanks to who ever posted it it is very clear how to do this on the site. Thank you a bunch.

Hey guys I have read several comments here and if your going to reset the error for waste ink, fine, any residual ink leaks that starts to spill out of your Canon printer from that point on an should be accepted as your responsibility, not the fault of a Canon printer. That is why they are set to warn of filling ink blotters. And it is strongly advised to replace the blotters and not try to clean them as they will lose near half of their absorbancy and fill faster but this time with no warning they are near full because the warning works on a counter, NOT a liquid sensor! Also try not to blame Canon for having this setup, HP, Lexmark, Epson and ALL inkjet type printers have it!
OK now that said, also please remember, depending on the printer model, the error for a waste ink full is 7 or 8 blinks of orange, then solid green with a pause then repeats. ANY OTHER BLINKS ARE A DIFFERENT PROBLEM AND ALTERNATING BLINKS OF ORANGE AND GREEN ARE NOT WASTE INK FULL ERRORS!
Someone here earlier stated they had 2 alternating blinks of orange and green, thats a 5100CR error meaning jammed carriage, nothing to do with blotters but it could mean in the cleaning and replacement process they somehow damaged the waste ink purge unit and the carriage is locked.

Okay this procedure definately works!

1) Start with the power off

2) Hold down the ON/OFF button plus the RESUME button at the same time.

3) Keep your fingers on both bottons and THEN let go of the resume button.

4) Then press the resume button twice

5) And then let go of the OFF/ON button (which you have been helding down while pressing the resume button twice).

6) Then,first press and release the resume button 4 times

7) And then the power button 2 times after this.

The printer should now be okay and the lights will return to normal (solid green only).

Wow! Thank you sooo much for your help. I got this printer from work cause they didn't want it anymore or thought it was broken. I asked to take it home thinking I'd just sell it to someone who fixes them. Well, I got it home, plugged it in and the lights flashed green and orange and it said the waste ink tank was full. I got online, found your solution and now it works like a charm. I have a brand new printer now! Thanks again! - Anonymous
Thanks for the advice, we got the wast ink tank full problem fixed, but for some reason, now the color wont work. The black works fine, but the color barely comes out. I tried deep cleaning twice, but still no results. Ours is a Canon pixma ip 1500, got any ideas?? Thanks (oh yeah, changed the ink cartridge too)

RESET IP2000 IP 3000 IP4000 IP5000 IP6000, I6100, I6500
Matikan Printer dengan menekan tombol power.

1. Tekan dan tahan tombol resume
2. Tekan dan tahan tombol power
3. Lepaskan tombol resume (tmbol power masih ditekan)
4. Tekan tombol resume 2 x
5. Head akan bergerak dan lampu tidak blinking
6. Tekan tombol resume 3x
7. Matikan printer dengan menekan tombol power. Apabila tidak off tekan kembali tombol power sampai printer mati.
8. Selesai
Ket:
Setelah di reset untuk printer ip2000, ip3000, ip4000 waste pad harus dibersihkan dan dikeringkan dulu kemudian dipasangkan kembali. (sebagian kasus printer akan kembali blink bila waste pad tidak dibersihkan). Hati2 membuka dan memasangkan kembali diusahakan tidak ada yang bergeser gear2 yang terdapat di atas waste pad.
Untuk i6100, i6500 setelah direset tidak perlu di buka dan dibersihkan waste padnya. Karena tidak pernah blink kembali.

Hi there - done all the removal of pads, cleaning, cotton-budding, printhead clean etc etc, put the thing back together and then followed the instructions for re-setting but, and here's the clincher, my printer lights are now flashing as follows,

8 x orange flashes
1 x stable green flash
8 x orange flashes
1 x stable green flash

and keeps repeating like that until I press the resume button.

What does this mean and can I stop it doing it at all?

thanks in advance

It took me some time to find the waste ink “tank” and sponges (Canon IP2000). Initially, I followed the 2 small tubes below the printer head and found an enclosed container made by white color plastic on the right side of the printer. It looks like a pump to me. While I was trying to take it out, I realized that the absorber sponges just in frond of me all over the place on the right bottom side of the printer. The top layer was still white color. It is probably why I did not notice them in the beginning. They are many pieces. Each piece is as large as 2 fingers size.

I also cleaned the 2 skinny pads and mechanism below the printer head. It is not necessary. It is difficult to remove them and put them back. They became dirty again quickly after few print.

I couldn't get your codes to work, but this link worked
http://www.neilslade.com/Papers/inkjetstuff11.html
1) Power off printer
2) Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER. (The beeper MAY sound once, or may not depending on your model.)
3) Hold POWER and Release RESUME.
4) Press RESUME twice then release both POWER and RESUME buttons.
5) When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME 4 times (for the S900, 3 times for the 8200 apparently).
6) Press power to set data.
7) Print away!

Hurray

Hi!

The same problem with my ip2200. I've reset waste ink counter. After it, didn't print to the paper.

- Anonymous
I have posted two messages about how to reset printer after cleaning the absorber pads. Have received no help. Someone sent email saying there is a new solution to this problem but it didn't say what the solution was. Pretty useless and a waste of time. I've been messing with this for 3 days. I'm thru. Just went out and bought a new HP printer. Goodby canon.

Here is the step to get rid of your Ip waste ink problem for ever. I've tried all the tips but I found this is the best fix!!

1. disconnect your power source
2. disconnect usb connection
3. remove all the printing paper
4. open your window(make sure there's no one standing below)
5. pick up the F\%$#en printer
6. and throw it out with vengeance....
7. Guaranty to solve all your IP problem... go ahead and buy new one...
