My printer MG3040

Steady orange lights ON


This is a GREAT question - same issue I am haVing. .....HOWEVER, CANON DID NOT TELL US WHERE THAT BUTTON IS!!!!


That was a GREAT question. ...HOWEVER, CANON DID NOT TELL US WHERE THE RESET BUTTON IS ON OUR COMPUTER - THOUGH MINE IS A PIXMA MX340. I DO, ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY PRINTER, THOUGH. This is the very FIRST time I've had even an issue as insignificant as this - 'where's the reset button'. Because mine is problem free and so dependable, so long lasting, both my daughters have 1 and all 8 of my grandchildren have 1, too. One of my granddaughters works for some bigwig at Disney and, because of her experience with her own, now her bigwig boss has one!!! Word of mouth about what a GREAT product you make spreads all over CA with all the colleges my grandkids are attending!


can't find reset on printer and directions are in a foreign language what's up with that pay good money for your printers and can't even use them but once to copy 15 copies jams and quits printing i'll never buy any cannon products again now i'm out of money and have to buy another printer


I found the power reset on my Canon MX340! It's just below where the power cord plugs into the printer (underneath, on the bottom of the computer) . It's just a tiny little black plastic lever. Just wiggle it left and right or back and forth and the power magically came back on! I feel like a "blithering idiot", being a retired electronic tech with 50 years experience and taking over a half hour to resolve such a simple issue! I didn't want to buy another printer since this is the best I've ever owned . A real work horse! We got it for only 100 bucks at a garage sale, and it obviously cost a lot more than that! It's fast , holds a lot of paper, and has a lot more options than those tiny, cheap $50 printers.

@steve1945 there is no reset button per se. You can reset your printer by following this:

1) Turn the printer off

2) Press and hold the STOP button for 3 seconds.

3) Then press the ON button and release the STOP button.

4) While holding the ON button, press the STOP button 5 times.

5) Release all buttons.

6) LCD Screen should turn on and be blank. After a minute or better turn the printer off once more.

This should be the reset. Now I am wondering why you've asked.....

I didn't make myself clear. I was making copies and the printer just stopped. The power was off. I've made sure all the connections were tight and also replaced the power cord, still no juice. I was hoping like other appliances there was a reset button for the power. Thanks for the fast responses.


@steve1945 sorry but there is no reset button. I'd be cheking the PSU for a fuse or burned out component.


Turn the printer off? No power is getting to the printer. It’s off. Printer just ‘died’ in the middle of a print job.


I cant turn the printer off, press on/off and nothing happens. at same time power and error light stay on steady--not flashing


@steve Hughes... did you ever figure out what to do? This exact thing just happened to me!!!
