Question about Canon PIXMA iX4000 InkJet Photo Printer

IX4000. Resetting a Canon iX4000. What is the button combination?

My waste ink counter is indicating that the waste ink container is full.  Canon wants you to bring it to a dealer and spend a lot of money that we do not want to spend.  After all the ink will have evaporated in the container and who cares if the pad is dirty.


 
So does anybody know how the reset the counter so the machine is functioning normal again?  I searched forums and found reset instructions for many printers but not the Canon iX4000.

Alternative would be to reset the complete printer, so open to that too.


 
And if you happen to know how to easily get to the container I appreciate that too as I probably have a look if it has or has not evaporated all ink in it and clean up any tubes. 

Thanks

Welcome to Fixya
If this happened recently then try to reset the printer to factory state. Please see procedure below:
1.Connect the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer to the power cord. ( note : If the automatic power-on function is enabled in the printer, the printer enters the service mode for the first time, but it will never enter the service mode if the printer is turned off by the Power button. This is because the printer remains to be turned on internally if the power is turned off by the Power button. To prevent this, disconnection of the power cord is required before starting the printer in the service mode ) .

2.With the Canon PIXMA iX4000 printer powered off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the Power button. (note : Don't release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)

3.While holding the Power button, release Resume/Cancel button. (Don't release the Power button.)

4.While holding the Power button, press Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons.

5.When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times to reset waste ink counter in the Canon Pixma iX4000. (note : If the Power LED does not light in green the printer does not enter the service mode, disconnect the power cord and plug it again. Then start from step 1 to start the printer in the service mode again).

6.At the end of the service mode, press the Power button. The paper lifting plate of the sheet feed unit will be raised.
Note :

Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.
Other specified number of time(s) according to the function listed in the table below.

Time(s) LED indication Function Remarks
0 times Green (Power) Power off
1 time Orange (Alarm) Service test print
2 times Green (Power) EEPROM information print
3 times Orange (Alarm) EEPROM initialization
4 times Green (Power) Waste ink counter resetting
5 times Orange (Alarm) Destination settings
6 times Green (Power) Print head deep cleaning (Cleaning of both black and color)

I have a Canon iX4000 color printer which is now showing a Error 5C00\r\nplease help


Your 'waste ink tank' is supposedly getting full.
Note that it may actually be getting full, if it is, and you keep printing, it can get messy. very very messy. ;>
I'd use a piece of folded newspaper about the size of the printer underneath the printer just to be safe. If you do this waste tank counter reset a few times, you WILL leak ink.

Power off the printer. Hold down Resume button, keep holding.
Hold down power button, wait for beep, release resume button while still holding power button down.
Press Resume twice, and release all buttons. Wait for indicator light to settle (stop changing). Press resume either 3 or 4 times, the indicator light will turn orange when you have pressed it enough times. Do not hold, just press.
When the light is orange, press power.

If you still get the error, you may have enough ink to actually physically block a sensor in the tank. When that happens, not only are you close to ink stains, you have to disassemble the printer and clean the pads and 'tank' out. This is even messier than an ink leak. ;>

Canon mp780 -waste ink near full??


Dear mr perfect,
Few days ago I have answered the same question about this for Canon MP700. Here is my answer:
Waste ink absorber capacity of your printer has rise to about 90-95 %. Tentatively, you can continue printing by pressing STOP/RESET button. When ink absorber capacity reach about 100%, the printer stop working and message 'Waste Ink Tank is Full' appears.
To fix this problem, you need to reset waste ink counter. It strongly recommended that you replace waste ink absorber after resetting waste ink counter.
Here are steps resetting waste ink counter of this printer:
  • With the machine power off, while pressing STOP/RESET button, press and hold the ON/OFF button. (Do not release the buttons).
  • While holding ON/OFF button, release the STOP/RESET button. (Do not release the ON/OFF button).
  • While holding the ON/OFF button, press the STOP/RESET 2 times and then release all buttons. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed, the alarm LED and COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
  • When the COPY button lights in green, press STOP/RESET button 4 times. (Each time STOP/RESET is pressed, the alarm LED and COPY lights alternately starting with alarm LED).
  • Turn off the printer.
Your printer should work normally now.
Regards,
