Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
There is a large sponge like container in the bottom of the IP1500
that holds the overflow of ink, Canon has built in a counter that will
warn you when this needs to be replaced. You dont really have to replace this..just hose it out in the sink until the water
runs clear, let the printer dry out real good for a week or so and
then use the following to reset the counter. You don't HAVE to clean out
the waste container, but, be prepared to have ink flowing out onto
whatever your printer is setting on if you just reset this and keep
printing. I really suggest you either clean it or replace it.
1) With the printer plugged in and powered off, press and hold the Resume/Cancel button, then press and hold the Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The LED light should be green to indicate that a function is selectable.).
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power button.).
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.).
4) When the LED light is green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in orange and green, starting with orange.).
5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the reset is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.).
6) Press the power button to exit service mode.
Note: if you accidentally press the Resume/Cancel button more than 4 times in step 4 then just press the Resume/Cancel button at least 10 times and the printer will be returned to step 4 automatically.
