Man­ual labour

Computer Shopper - - LETTERS -

I read with in­ter­est the let­ter from Bert Poole re­gard­ing the prob­lem he had with his Canon Pixma iP4500 (Shop­per 355).

I have a Canon Pixma iP4000 which, about a year ago, de­vel­oped the same prob­lem as Bert’s; namely I re­ceived an er­ror code in­di­cat­ing that the ink ab­sorber was full. So, be­ing un­will­ing to con­tact Canon (ie, spend money), I searched the web for a so­lu­tion and found a PDF copy of a gen­uine Canon ser­vice man­ual for my printer. In there was a sec­tion about how to re­set the counter.

So, I duly re­set the counter, and a year later it’s still work­ing. Now, I’m not say­ing that this will work for Bert’s prob­lem, but any­thing is bet­ter than throw­ing the printer into the skip.
