Question about Canon imageCLASS MF8180C All-In-One Laser Printer
I went to my office yesterday to find out my color Laser Printer (Canon Image Class MFC 8180c) went on "Download Standby". The LCD screen shows "DOWNLOAD STANDBY" and I have tried to reset it thrice, changed USB ports, changed my USB connector, telephone wires, upgraded software, and nothing seems to work. Is there a HARD RESET on the Printer? My printer is not printing, copying or faxing. Can anyone help?
Here is a solution to a similar problem provided by soulvisitor in this thread:
"1) - Power ON printer while holding both the + & - buttons until “OKIUSER” message appears in LCD.
2) - Press + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed.
3) Press "ENTER", displayed will be "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX S-MODE"
4) Press + or – button until “NV-RAM INITIAL” is displayed.
Half way, dont stop too long it will time out....
5) Press "ENTER" again.
6) Will appear "TABLE 1" message.
7) Press "ENTER" until "EXECUTING RESET" message appear. ...............the "NV-RAM INITIAL" message will BLINK.
Tada....This procedure reset TONER, DRUM, FUSER and BELT...life counts
8) power OFF printer, wait 10 sec, and power ON again..
To access Service Mode in C9300 power ON printer with 0, 1, 6, 7 at same time...you can do some good damage in there!! (I warned ya!)"

The hard reset you are referring is done by unplugging the printer from the main power source and leave it like that for about1o minutes, to allow the circuitry to cool down and reset itself.
If the printer is less than a year old, still covered under manufacturers warranty.
Hope it works.
