I looked online and found this short video on YouTube that explains how to reset the line counter on a Cannon downrigger. It seems pretty simple – just hold down the black button for a few seconds until the green light blinks, and then release it.

If you’re having trouble resetting the line counter, it might be because there’s something caught in the gears. In that case, you’ll need to take the downrigger apart and clean it out. I hope that helps!

To reset the line counter on a Cannon downrigger, first loosen the knobs on either side of the handle. Next, twist the handle counter-clockwise until it pops off. Finally, reattach the handle by twisting it clockwise until it’s tight, and then re-tighten the knobs on either side.

Answer: The line counter on a Cannon downrigger can be reset by following these steps:

1) Open the bail arm.

2) Unscrew the line release knob and remove the line spool.

3) Turn the black cap at the top of the spool counterclockwise for about one turn. This will release the reset spring.

4) Replace the line spool and line release knob, making sure that the arrow on the knob points in the direction of travel. Screw on the knob until it’s tight.

5) Close bail arm.

If you’re having trouble resetting the line counter, it might be because there’s something caught in the gears. In that case, you’ll need to take the downrigger apart and clean it out. I hope that helps!

To reset the line counter on your Cannon downrigger, first make sure that the downrigger is in the “off” position. Next, disengage the brake by pulling out the lever located on the side of the downrigger. With the brake disengaged, spool out all of the lines from the downrigger.

Once all of the lines has been spooled out, engage the brake by pushing in on the lever. Finally, use a pencil or other sharp object to press and hold down the reset button located on top of the downrigger for 5 seconds. This will reset your line counter back to zero.
