Question about Canon BJC 4300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer won't print

I have a Canon BJC-4300 printer and I recently ran out of black ink. I did not buy the same exact brand as my color ink cartridge. I am getting an error message "Printer Cartridge Not Compatible." Do I have to use the brand of ink for my black and color cartridges. When I turn on my printer, the neon green light immediately begins flashing. It looks like my print jobs are just sitting out there in limbo, waiting for the printer to get its act together.

It always helps to replace with the correct brand as cheaper versions do fail, also if you had replaced it with a BC-20 from Canon, the supplier may replace it for you. It would be a good idea to trust the printer at this stage, try a Canon BC-20

I just recived a used BJC-85 its is printing fine in black and white but not color whats wrong


Try some of the following possible problems:

1. Make sure the color cartridges are installed correctly.
2. Make sure the cartridges are not expired. There should be a date on the sticker on them.
3. Make sure that the cartridges are clean. Sometimes the ink can build up on the cartridges and stop ink from coming out.
4. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Printers and Faxes. Find your printer and right click, then press Printing Preferences. In the options there make sure that color is selected.

I have been using a Canon BJC4300 for years. Love it!. I only use the black BC-20 cartridge. Have used both Canon and various off brands with no problem. Recently replaced it with a Focus brand. The...


Sometimes the printhead itself gets clogged. You can remove it with the green lever to the right of it. Take both cartridges out, take the printhead alone and soak it in lukewarm water for an hour. Rinse when done. You will likely see lots of black ink in the water that has been softened and removed from the printhead. Blow excess water off or leave it to dry. Put known good cartridges back in and you should be ready to go. Done this many many times.

Canon 5750 Won't print the color, although it's set to do that, and cartridges all have ink in it. I deep cleaned and also ran a nozzle check ... but don't know how to interpret that. A = 0 B = -1 C =...


Hi Sue, first tell the exact printer model, because MF5750 is laser printer B&W, lbp5700 is also laser and doesnt have ink.
Wich ink printer do you have like pixma 5300? pixma 4300?
The 5750 doesnt exist in canon range of printers.

But, by your description you have print head problems or clodged inks or purge unit problems.

    What side does the color and black ink go in a canon 4303 printer


    Is this a BJC-4300 Series printer? (The only other 4300 series was a Canon Pixma printer which uses 4 ink tanks.)

    If so, the color ink tank is on the left and the black is on the right.

    If I have the wrong model, comment back.

    Cartridge recommendations


    You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.

    Losing Ink


    Depending on how many times you have refilled the wells of the cartride the sensor inside may be going bad as the manufature of the cartridge only intended it for a one time use. My recommendation would be to buy a off brand compatible and refill those.

    CANON BJC-85 Won't print black...


    Turn on printer, press cartridge button, remove cartridge. On left side of remaining cradle, unsnap the cradle, lift up and remove. Take the cradle to your sink, wet a paper towel, and GENTLY wipe the long print head with the wet paper towel. Then run a small stream of clear cool water through the cradle, from the round pad that your cartridge rests on, until the pad looks ink-free. Dry everything with tissues and a hair dryer set on low, replace cradle in printer, replace cartridge, turn on printer, press Resume until it beeps three times, which runs the deep cleaning program, and after the procedure is finished, your printer will print as new.
