Hard reset for Pixma TR4520 printer

 I need to know how to perform a hard reset on my Pixma TR4520 printer. I recently had to change out my home wireless router and my pixma is stuck in "Copy Mode" so that I can no longer access the setup menu to change network settings.

I've tried powering off, holding stop, power and hitting stop five times. I've tried unplugging it for 30 seconds. 

Manual only tells how to reset using the menu (which I can't access because of being stuck in copy mode)

Could anyone tell me how to perform a hard reset (a factory reset without using the lcd menu) so that I can get my printer working again?

Thank you, in advance, for your time.

Thanks for trying to help, but unfortunately, when I said "I've tried powering off, holding stop, power and hitting stop five times." that's what I was talking about. 

Give Canon support a call. 1-800-OK-CANON in the US.

I think you need to pay $20 to call them for support. I really like the printer other than this problem that I've had with it.
