Canon BJC-5000 Waste Ink Tank Counter Reset

Canon BJC-5000 Waste Ink Tank Counter Reset

The reset procedure below is valid for the Canon BJC-1000 only. To see guides for other printers please read the full article here.


Before you start please note that the Resume button mentioned below will be represented by this symbol on most printers.
  1. Turn the printer off using the POWER button.
  2. Press and hold RESUME then press POWER. Note: The LED should now be flashing
  3. Press RESUME twice and wait until the printer beeps.
  4. When the LED changes to a steady green press RESUME four times. Note: It is important you press RESUME exactly four time as more or less will cause the printer to perform a different function.
  5. Press POWER to finalise.


Please note that by following this procedure you are not emptying the tank/pad but simply resetting the counter that estimates how full it is. Please read our full article here for more information.

      Hmm… the internet seems devoid of information on this printer sadly. Hopefully there is someone out there that will see your comment and will be able to supply a guide.
