Canon S9000 Waste Ink Tank Counter Reset

Canon S9000 Waste Ink Tank Counter Reset

The reset procedure below is valid for Canon S9000 printer. 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 printer off using POWER button.
  2. Press and hold the RESUME button.
  3. Press and hold the POWER button and release RESUME.
  4. Press RESUME twice and release POWER.
  5. Green LEDs will flash momentarily.
  6. When green LEDs are solid, press RESUME four times. Note: It is important you press RESUME exactly four times as more or less will cause the printer to perform a different function.
  7. Press the POWER button and the printer should turn off.
  8. Press the Power button once more to return your printer to normal operation.

If following this process has not reset the counter I would advise running through these steps again and physically removing the power cable at step 7. A small percentage of printers require this instead of the button press.


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.

    I have followed your steps for resetting the S9000 Ink tank full message. I get as far as step 5 and the green light flashes then it alternately goes 8 orange flashes and one long green flash. Never goes solid green as your step 6. What is going wrong?
    I had removed the ink pad earlier and squeezed out the excess ink and replaced it.
    The printer prints OK but still gives the ink tank almost full message.
    Any suggestions?

      In all honesty, I am not sure Chris. I have confirmed this method as being accurate with several sources. I would advise running through again and making sure to follow the instructions to the letter.
