A lot of printer problems can be fixed by just resetting the printer to factory defaults. In this article, I'm going to show you how to reset Canon MP240 printer. First of all turn off your printer than press and hold the reset button (the red button at bottom right) and the ON button simultaneously. Now release the red button and press it twice while holding the ON button. Now release the ON button. Wait for a while and a zero should come up on the display. Now press the red button four times than press the ON button twice. The printer will turn off automatically. Turn on your printer; a paper should come out with a report. Here you are done.
