Thanks, that worked for me. The other steps I found online were slightly different and didn't work.

Sorry but mine is a Mx410. I have replaced absorber pad. What a chore. It will reset with these procedures. It just goes back to 5b00 and never goes idle to complete procedure.

It worked! :) :) On a Canon MP220, now the only question is, was that a temporary fix? Either way, thank you!!

Awesome! Worked on my MP470. Tried 10+ different other methods before this. Had almost given up. THANKS!
