Pro-100 : Forgotten Admin Password - Reset Procedure Doesn't Work

Greetings, first-time poster here.  Forgive me if this has been addressed elsewhere, but my searches didn't turn up anything.


I appear to have set an admin password on PIXMA PRO 100 and do not recall what it is.  I followed the proceedure for in  this article (


Follow the procedure below to initialize the network settings.

  1. Press and hold the RESUME/CANCEL button until the POWER lamp flashes 9 times.

  2. Release the RESUME/CANCEL button.

    The network settings are initialized

The network setup was earsed as advertised, but when I go to setup the network again via USB cable connection I get prompted for the admin password in order to update the network settings.


I also tried the suggested default Canon passwords (canon, my serial #, admin, etc.) and nothing works.


I need to print via a network connnection because of the layout of my office.  The only way I can connect via USB is to take my laptop of to the printer, which is not an effective workstation.


Any help would be appricated.

Hi chipfreund,


The 9 flash reset procedure only resets the network settings.


The admin password will not be reset.


Please follow the reset procedure on this page from the manual to reset the password:


Once complete, the admin password is set to the default value.


The default username is:    ADMIN


The default password is:    canon
