How to enter service mode on your Canon printer




Before you can use ServiceTool V2000.exe to reset your Canon printer, you need to enter service mode on your printer. Service mode is a special mode that allows you to access the printer's internal settings and perform various operations. To enter service mode, you need to follow different steps depending on whether your printer has an LCD display or not.


For printers with LCD display




If your printer has an LCD display, such as MP540, MP550, MP560, etc., you need to follow these steps to enter service mode:


  • Turn off your printer and disconnect it from the power source.



  • Press and hold the Resume/Cancel button (the one with a red triangle inside a circle).



  • While holding the Resume/Cancel button, reconnect the printer to the power source and turn it on.



  • Release the Resume/Cancel button and then press it twice quickly.



  • The printer's LCD display should show "0" (zero). If not, repeat the steps until it does.



  • Press the OK button.



  • The printer's LCD display should show "1". This means you have entered service mode successfully.



For printers without LCD display




If your printer does not have an LCD display, such as iP2700, iP3600, iP4600, etc., you need to follow these steps to enter service mode:


  • Turn off your printer and disconnect it from the power source.



  • Press and hold the Resume/Cancel button (the one with a red triangle inside a circle).



  • While holding the Resume/Cancel button, reconnect the printer to the power source and turn it on.



  • Release the Resume/Cancel button and then press it four times quickly.



  • The green power LED should blink alternately with the orange alarm LED. This means you have entered service mode successfully.



How to use ServiceTool V2000.exe to reset your Canon printer




Once you have entered service mode on your Canon printer, you can use ServiceTool V2000.exe to reset your Canon printer. There are three main operations that you can perform with this program: resetting the ink absorber counter, printing test pages and checking the ink level, and changing the region code and other settings. We will explain each of these operations in detail below.


How to reset the ink absorber counter




The ink absorber counter is a feature that tracks how much ink is absorbed by the waste ink pads inside your printer. These pads collect the excess ink that is used during cleaning cycles and print head alignment. When the ink absorber counter reaches a certain limit, the printer will display an error message such as "Ink absorber full" or "Service required" and stop working. To fix this problem, you need to reset the ink absorber counter using ServiceTool V2000.exe.


To reset the ink absorber counter, follow these steps:


  • Make sure your printer is in service mode and connected to your computer.



  • Run ServiceTool V2000.exe as an administrator.



  • Click on the Clear Ink Counter tab.



  • Select either Main or Platen from the drop-down menu. The Main option resets the main ink absorber pad, while the Platen option resets the platen ink absorber pad. You can check which pad is full by looking at the error code displayed on your printer. For example, if the error code is 5B00 or 5B01, you need to select Main. If the error code is 5B02 or 5B03, you need to select Platen.



  • Click on the Set button next to your selection. The program will start resetting the ink absorber counter. Wait until it finishes and shows a message saying "A function was finished".



  • Turn off your printer and then turn it on again. The error message should be gone and your printer should work normally.



How to print test pages and check the ink level




You can also use ServiceTool V2000.exe to print test pages and check the ink level of your Canon printer. This can help you diagnose any problems with your print quality or ink cartridges. To print test pages and check the ink level, follow these steps:


  • Make sure your printer is in service mode and connected to your computer.



  • Run ServiceTool V2000.exe as an administrator.



  • Click on the Main tab.



  • To print a test page, click on the Test Print button. You can choose from three types of test pages: Nozzle Check Pattern, EEPROM Information, and Service Test Print. The Nozzle Check Pattern shows the status of the print head nozzles and the ink cartridges. The EEPROM Information shows the printer's settings and history. The Service Test Print shows various information about the printer's functions and features.



  • To check the ink level, click on the Ink Absorber Counter button. You will see a table that shows the percentage of ink remaining in each ink cartridge. You can also see the total amount of ink used by the printer.



How to change the region code and other settings




Another operation that you can perform with ServiceTool V2000.exe is changing the region code and other settings of your Canon printer. The region code is a feature that prevents you from using ink cartridges from different regions. For example, if your printer is from Europe, you cannot use ink cartridges from America or Asia. This can be a problem if you travel to another region or buy ink cartridges online. To solve this problem, you can change the region code of your printer using ServiceTool V2000.exe.


You can also change other settings of your printer, such as the paper size, the paper type, the print quality, the auto power off, and more. To change the region code and other settings, follow these steps:


  • Make sure your printer is in service mode and connected to your computer.



  • Run ServiceTool V2000.exe as an administrator.



  • Click on the Main tab.



  • To change the region code, click on the Set Destination button. You will see a drop-down menu that shows the available regions. Choose the region that matches your ink cartridges and click OK. The program will change the region code of your printer.



  • To change other settings, click on the EEPROM button. You will see a window that shows various parameters and values. You can modify these values by clicking on them and entering new values. Be careful not to change any values that you are not sure about, as this may cause problems with your printer. Click OK when you are done.



How to troubleshoot common errors and issues with ServiceTool V2000.exe




ServiceTool V2000.exe is a useful program that can help you reset your Canon printer and perform various service mode operations. However, it is not perfect and may encounter some errors and issues from time to time.

Error code 006 or 005




If you see an error message saying "Error code 006" or "Error code 005" when you try to use ServiceTool V2000.exe, it means that the program cannot communicate with your printer or that your printer is not in service mode. To fix this error, try these solutions:

Then, go to the Compatibility tab and check the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode for". Choose Windows XP from the drop-down menu and click OK.

Then, you can run ServiceTool V2000.exe on the virtual machine as if it were running on a real Windows XP computer.



Printer not responding or not detected by the program




If your printer is not responding or not detected by ServiceTool V2000.exe, it may be due to a problem with the printer connection or drivers. To fix this problem, try these solutions:

  • Go to Control Panel > Devices and Printers.



  • Right-click on your printer and select "Remove device".



  • Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features.



  • Find and uninstall any programs related to your printer, such as Canon Printer Software, Canon Printer Driver, etc.
