Step 1. Ensure that the printer is turned off before beginning.

Step 3. Press and hold the Secure and X Cancel buttons

Step 4. You will need to select the correct cartridge model. Use the arrow keys to make a selection and then press the Ok button

Step 5. Press the UP arrow to reset the cartridge

Step 6. Once the screen shows Accepted, the reset is finished.

Repeat these steps for every single cartridge that needs to be reset (sometimes just one is needed, sometimes all of the need to be reset.)

Step 7. Close the printer lid and hit X Cancel and resume printing.
