I need a tool to reset my canon pixma iP4600 ink cartridges

I currently use iP-Tool.exe to reset my canon pixma iP1800 ink cartridges. I want to upgrade my printer to XP professional sp3 compliant hardware. I have a canon pixma iP4600 printer in mind but need a tool to reset the ink cartridges before I actually buy the printer. Is there such a tool?

I found the only tool I have seen at this url. http://www.patronenhandel.de/shop/index.php/cat/c13943_Canon-Chipresetter.html It is a German company, but I was able to order the resetter from them with no problems. It has worked very well, but was a little expensive. part of the problem was that the US dollar and Euro were not at a favorable exchange rate when I ordered. I didn't get any answers to my emails to them, but when I used there site to order, it took about a week to get the device. It is very simple to use.

Ink absorber if full, contact service provider? is there any other remedy?


There are two remedies for an error ink absorber full. First, is the ink absorber pads is actually full of waste ink and needs cleaning. The second is to reset the printer to clear the error and let the printer print again.

Clean the two absorber pads
. Its is actually two absorber pads located on the right side of the printer, under the ink cartridges when it is in home base position.
How to access the pads and remove it for cleaning?
Turn on the printer. Lift the top cover to expose the ink cartridges. As soon as you lift up the cover the cartridge carrier will move away from its home base.. Then the pads will be exposed. It will be a dirty job so be prepared with your tweezer and extra cloth for some ink spill. Using the tweezer, lift up the pads sitting on a rubber retainer. The pads can be easily clean by placing it under a running water. Warm water will be nice to remove the ink from the pads. After this, you can now return the pads. However, the problem will not be solve especially if you are currently facing the waste ink absorber full error.

Reset the Printer using an iP Tool
iP Tools are utilities designed to clear errors that will appear in an iP1800 printer. Download this iP Tool here.
while the printer is on Run this software
1. Click Reset Main to reset the waste ink counter and
2.
Click Reset Platen button

If errors still persist.
Press and Hold down Reset button and wait until the printer restart.
Release the Reset button and wait until it fully initialize.

Happy printing.
