The Canon IP 3300 line of inkjet printers, which includes the 3330, specialise in printing high resolution photographs. If your printer has stopped working correctly and you have tried other troubleshooting methods, you may need to reset the device back to its factory settings. This process involves using the control buttons on the front of the printer to enter service mode and then reset the EEPROM (electrically erasable programmable read-only memory), which stores all of the printer's configuration settings.
- Skill level:
Turn the printer off but leave the power cord plugged into an outlet.
Hold down the "Resume" and "Power" buttons at the same time.
Release the "Resume" button while continuing to hold down the "Power" button.
Tap the "Resume" button twice and then let go of the "Power" button. The green power light should blink to indicate you have entered service mode.
Wait until you hear the printhead inside the printer stop moving.
Tap the "Resume" button three times and then press the "Power" button to run the reset command. The device will now reset its EEPROM configuration and return to factory settings.
