Printer Maintenance Required – Restore to Factory Settings

If your canon printer shows you a warning message “Printer Maintenance Required” you are required to restore the canon printer to factory settings to get rid of that message. A factory reset will return your printer’s settings to what they were when they first came out of the box.
