The Canon PIXMA iP3000 is a personal inkjet printer that features USB connectivity, compatibility with Windows/Macintosh computer systems and photo printing capability. Along with the software suite that comes with your PIXMA iP3000, the device features a waste ink counter that will automatically prohibit the printer from functioning when the waste ink pads are deemed full. If you believe the waste ink pads have a little life left, you can reset the ink waste counter to restore the printer's functionality.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Turn off the printer, and press and hold the "Resume/Cancel" button. Continue holding the "Resume/Cancel" and then hold the "ON/OFF" button and wait for the LED indicator to turn green.

  2. 2

    Release the "Resume/Cancel" button while continuing to hold the "ON/OFF" button. Tap the "Resume/Cancel" button twice and release both buttons at the same time.

  3. 3

    Tap the "Resume/Cancel" button four times to reset the waste ink counter. Press the "ON/OFF" button to confirm your selection and finish the process.
