Resetting Canon inkjet printer

The printer is not an ip1600, it is in fact an ip1880 but your system does not recognise the ip1880 as a valid product, so I have called it an ip1600 to get into the system, but it really is an ip1880.
The yellow light keeps on flashing and the printer will not print. It flashes 15 times then the green light flashes once, this sequence continues ad infinitum. In the maintenance screen it says that the cartridges are wrong , but the cartridges are the ones supplied with the printer. Please can you tell me how to reset the thing.

Perhaps change the cartridges?  You might also try to clean them.  If this doesn't work, you're probably looking at a new printhead.

Ink jet printer will not print. Canon Pixma ip1880

If you could count the exact number of times the light flashes that would help.  If it is 15 exactly, you need to replace your FINE cartridge.  If that doesn't help, the carriage may need to be serviced.

Ip1880 reset didn't works

This is the REAL working method of manually resetting Canon ip1880 - ip 1980.

1. Unplug the POWER cord.
2. Press & hold the power button.
3. Connect the power cord WHILE holding the power button.
4. Keep on holding the power button for about 30 seconds.
5. Release the power button. The printer should be turned off.
6. Turn the printer on and that's it!

NOTE: You have to do this every time you turn on your printer. Or you will get the waste pad full error.

Hope this helps.
