You can reset the ink cartridge on a Canon MP470 printer by using the "Power" and "Stop/Reset" buttons on the printer's menu display. These buttons allow you to program the unit to enter a cartridge reset mode. It only takes a few minutes to complete reset of the ink cartridge. If the cartridge does not function properly after you have reset it, you may need to send the printer to Canon for in-house repairs.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "Power" button in the upper-right corner of the printer to shut off the unit. Press and hold the "Stop/Reset" reset button. This button sits in the lower-right corner of the menu buttons section on the printer.

  2. 2

    Press the "Power" button again while still holding the "Stop/Reset" button. Release the "Stop/Reset" button once the device begins to start up.

  3. 3

    Push the "Stop/Reset" button twice. Wait a few seconds until the liquid-crystal display shows the number "0" on the screen. Push the "Stop/Reset" button four times.

  4. 4

    Push the "Power" button twice. Wait several seconds. Press and hold the "Power" button again to shut the device off. Press the "Power" button again to start the printer. The ink cartridge should be fully reset.
