Reset Canon printer errors and reset Ink Waste Absorber Full

On the Canon series machines MP160 and MP250 and MX470 I have been able to fix most error codes with this procedure: Turn off printer. Hold the Stop/Reset button (triangle in a circle) down and hold while pressing and holding down the ON button. Keep holding both down for 5 seconds then take finger off the Stop/Rest button and then press that button 4 times. This puts the printer in service mode. Let go of the buttons and press stop/reset two more times. This is a service mode signal to recycle the EEPROM and clear errors. Now you can turn the power off. If you have trouble turning off, then hold the power button for four or five seconds and let go to turn off the printer. When it restarts it will act like the printer was new. If you want the WASTE INK absorber is full warning set back to reset you would press the Stop/Reset button six times instead of four. TIP: If printer won't turn on, remove power code for 60 seconds and replace it, then power on.

how to fix error code 5200 on canon printer MP258? what is 5200 mean?


Here's the procedure. This code is normally encountered after refilling an ink cartridge and replacing the cartridge. Turn off printer. Hold down Stop/Reset button with one hand and turn printer on with other hand. After green light comes on for the ON button, press the Stop/Reset button two times and you should see the green light blink off and the orange alarm light blink "on" with the first press and then the green light comes back on for the power button and the orange light goes off with the second press (if you did it correctly). Now, you need to hold down the ON button about five seconds, then let go to shut OFF the printer. When you turn it back on, the printer should be back to the factory original condition. Make sure you set all your printer properties the way you want them again from your printer properties dialog boxes because some of the settings may have been stored in the printer's EEPROM, which you just reset to get rid of the offending alarm code.
