Canon MP190 Series Reset Guide

Posted on 18 February 2011 by yizhan

This is a very short guide in resetting your Canon MP190 Series Printer when you got a .  I have seen a lot of guide over the internet but most of them where not working and some are very hard to understand.  To reset your MP190 series, first you have to put your printer into service mode.

Steps to put your MP190 series to service mode

  1. Unplug and plug the printer’s AC plug to the AC socket.
  2. Press and hold the Stop/Reset button.
  3. While holding the Stop/Reset  button, press and hold the power button.
  4. Release the Stop/Reset button (keep on holding the Power button).
  5. Press the Stop/Reset button twice and release the power button.
  6. Wait for the printer to initialize and when it displays “0” on the panel it means your done.

Now that your printer is in service mode, you are ready to reset the waist ink counter. First download Service Tool V1050 (Download link at the end of the post).  Extract the file and run the Service tool V1050

  1. Determine which USB Port your printer is connected to and select it on the USB port drop down menu.
  2. In the Clear Ink Counter Selection tick on the “Main”  button.
  3. Then Tick on the “Plater” button.

Now your printer’s waste ink counter is set back to zero.

    I am sorry to tell you but this is not working. After I release the power button the “0” is not apearing on display and I tryed multiple times and waited for more than 5 minutes to appear.

  2. yizhan Says:

    did you press the stop/reset button twice before releasing the power button?

  3. shaune Says:

    I’ve got the same problem… I can’t get the “0” to appear (and, yes, I’ve pressed the reset button twice). I think it might just be easier to buy a new printer…

    you can try this

  5. shaune Says:

    Thanks for the video… No luck, however. The ‘0’ still doesn’t appear. Actually, the power button doesn’t blink either (as it does in your video), it just stays solid green.

    I made the “O” led shown, but when I click on buttons from the program the program stopped responding. I have Windows 7 64 bits, will this be the problem?

  7. yizhan Says:

    Try running the program as administrator
