First turn off the printer by removing the mains plug from the wall. Then reboot the computer and plug in the printer.

If that doesn't work, install two new cartridges. I have found that the chip on the cartidges often gives wrong information to the printer and gives erroneous problems with the alarm light.

My Canon MX310 alarm light is on - ink reservoir is almost full. I cleaned the reservoir and have tried the above procedure to clear the alarm but it hasn't worked. How do I clear the alarm?


Dear
You can reset the waste ink tank counter yourself. Be aware that this doesn't actually empty the waste ink tank itself but it does allow you to continue printing.

1: Power off printer
2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
3: Hold POWER and release RESUME
4: Press RESUME twice, then release all buttons
5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three or four times. The indicator should be orange.

Thanks.

I can't figure out how to set the alarm and make sure that it's set. The instructions with the clock radio are not clear. Also not sure how to turn off the alarm when it buzzes in the morning.....Help!!


Hello Barb,

To set the alarm hold either alarm 1 or alarm 2 buttons down. While holding down the button adjust the hour by pressing the tune+ button. The bottom left of the display there will be a light letting you know if it is pm or am. While still pressing the alarm press tun- to select the minutes. If you want to wake with radio or a buzz keepholding the alarm button down and press the am/fm/aux button. Release the alarm button when done. To select an alarm just press the alarm botton you want once, a light on the right side of the display will turn on. To unselect press the same alarm button once and the light will turn off. To turn the buzzer off in the morning select power/al off button located at the top left of the unit.

How do I turn off the alarm on my Armitron watch?


I don't know whether this is what you are looking for, as the watch comes with no packaged instructions OR general support, on their website, XD,

Armitron All-Sport Watch Instructions By Brian Walker eHow Contributor 9 Found This Helpful The Armitron All-Sport is a unisex style of watch made by Armitron that features a digital readout and four buttons around the outer dial for adjusting various aspects of the watch. It can set alarms, keeps the time as well as the date, and has a built-in backlight. Accessing and adjusting these various settings is a fairly simple process.

Setting Date, Time and Alarm
  • To enter the date and time setting mode, press and hold the "mode" button, located on the top-left of the watch. Continue holding this button until the display begins to flash. This first display is the alarm setting, should you choose to set an alarm to go off. If you'd like to set the alarm, use the "alarm" button on the bottom-right of the watch to advance the hours to the desired one. Then press the mode button again; this will cycle through the minutes and seconds of the alarm to allow you to set those as well. Once you have set the alarm, you can press the "date" button at the top-right of the watch to proceed to the regular time setting. These numbers, which will now be flashing, also are adjusted by pressing the alarm button to change them. Pressing the date button again will now cycle through the hours, minutes, seconds and the date. As you continue to press the date button, the All-Sport will continuously cycle through these options; don't worry if you forget to set one, you can simply press the date button a few times until you get back to the setting you need to change. Once the alarm, time and date have all been set, you can press the mode button one more time to exit to the normal watch mode that will display the date and time.
Using Chime and Alarm
  • The Armitron All-Sport features both an alarm and an hourly chime. The alarm function will cause the watch to continuously beep at the selected time until you turn it off by pressing a button. The chime will cause the watch to beep once every hour. You can turn both these features on and off by pressing and holding the alarm button and while holding it pressing the date button. The first time you do this, the chime will turn on and a small house symbol will be displayed on the watch face. Performing this button-pressing sequence again will turn on the alarm, which in turn displays a small clock icon on the watch face. Each successive pressing of this button sequence will alternate between the chime and the alarm, turning them either on or off.
Backlight
  • The All-Sport also features a built-in backlight to help you view the watch in dark conditions. This light can be activated by pressing the "light" button on the bottom-left of the watch. Pressing this button is the only way to activate the light, and doing so will only cause the watch to illuminate for a few seconds at a time.
