Resetting the Canon IP4200 back to its factory settings for troubleshooting and customising purposes only takes knowing the right procedure. The first thing that you probably think of when the ink monitoring and performance of your photo printer become inefficient is either replacement or servicing. Entering the printer's service mode operation for restoring factory settings can be done in less than 5 minutes. With the right instruction, you can reset the printer, correcting many of its software and configuration issues.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Power down your IP4200, then press the "Resume/Cancel" button. Press the "Power" button, and hold both buttons as you continue to the next step.

  2. 2

    Let go of the "Resume/Cancel" button, then press it again two times. Release the "Power" button after the second repetition.

  3. 3

    Press and release the "Resume/Cancel" button three more times. Do this as quickly as possible, then press the "Power" button to reset your printer.
