What are you trying to do? Some counters do not reset. Only those for consumable items can be reset.

SOURCE: how to RESET counter

Of course, the printer settings can be changed via the standard print options menu in Windows but to reset the counter is done when a new cartridge is installed. But this is how I would proceed... Since the printer and the cartridge are in "cahoots", I'd not give them the chance to communicate. Do this: Place some tape over the electronic contacts on the cartridge. (This prevents the printer and cartridge communicating) Then... Setup another printer icon using the HP Laserjet 4 (MS) printer driver. (This ensures no communication between the installed software and the printer). This should allow you to print some more, but not duplex of course. Remember to shake the cartridge from side to side in order to loosen impacted toner. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's

How do one enter to Service Mode level 3 of Canon irc3200

That level 3 mode is only for Canon engineers. What counter are you looking to reset? The counters for most maintenance items are reset in service mode level 1. The total counter for the machine cannot be reset without replacing the main controller pcb & the counter pcb.
