Quick Fix for Canon Pixma ip1500


Thought I’d share this quick tip for resetting your Canon Pixma ip1500 printer.

Mine occasionally refuses to power up, especially after a power outage, and I’ve found this weird little routine that will fix it:

How To Re-set a Canon Pixma Printer

  1. Unplug the power cord.
  2. Open front of printer.
  3. Hold down the Power button.
  4. Plug in printer (still holding down Power button).
  5. Close the printer cover (still holding down Power button).
  6. Now release the Power button.

Awkward, yes? But effective!
