Question about Canon BJC 8200 Photo InkJet Printer

Canon BJC 8200 printer not responding:

Hello,

I recently purchased a new computer with the Windows Vista os, the previous computer had Windows XP. The Canon BJC 8200 printer worked perfectly with the XP computer, but is having some issues with the Vista version. Mostly, it prints one page..then stops...or it says "printer not redsponding". I've deleted the computer and reinstalled it a few times, each time it appears that the proper drivers are loading...still, I'm at a loss.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

    I solved the problem and want to post the solution in case anyone else is having this issue.



    I had the Canon BJC 8200 connected to the computer with a parallel (printer) to usb (computer) adapter. Apparently, this adapter would "go to sleep" when there was inactivity with the printer, and would not properly connect once it was awakened. I simply connected the printer to the computer with a usb to usb cord and the problem was solved.



    Hope this helps others.

Did you go to the Canon site and download the drivers? Also while at the site, check the FAQ's.

I need a driver for windows vista for my printer BJC-85


They only support up to windows xp
I found this information on a forum.....

Canon does not write modern Vista drivers for a printer that old. That leaves only one other source and that's the actual Windows Vista os. If it's not included then you cannot use this printer in Vista.

You have to run the Add New Printer wizard to find out if this printer is supported by the Vistamag-glass_10x10.gif os.

BJC 80 w/ Vista OS prints 1/2 page and goes to error mode.


Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port card. That's a PC Card parallel port adapter. It provides a native parallel port to laptops that do not have one built in. Works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge.

I have canon BJC 1000 printer how can i use it with laptop


No . Each piece of hardware requires a driver for the Win OS that is compatable. This printer was manufactured to run with 8 different systems if you include Mac.The only way to use it is to either downgrade to win Xp or the force Canon to provide a driver for you model for VIsta. I do nbot see that they wouldl be inclined to do that for a out of date product.

I have window vista in my laptop and I need the driveer for a canon bjc-85 bubble jet printer


Microsoft Windows Vista shall auto detect and recognize your device.
Normally most of the drivers are aleady available with Vista Os.

Step 1:
Connect the Printer to the system
Vista will auto detect this
Step 2:
When the pop-up windows appear stating new hardware found
Try to choose one from
Maufacturer >> Canon >> Check the BJC-85

But in case if you have tried to install driver form Windows XP CD
Please delete it and/or uninstall it entirely.

I hope this resolves you query
all the best

I cant install my canon BJC-4100 printer


What OS are you trying to install it on, and how are you getting the files? The printer came out when Windows 95 was brand new, so using the original installation discs (floppies?) on any newer OS is not going to work. Canon has drivers available online for Windows NT, 95, 98 and Me here.

If you have a newer Windows 2000 or Windows XP use the drivers that are built in to the OS. From the Add Printer option, select Canon as the manufacturer, then look for Canon Bubble Jet BJC-4100.

If you have Windows Vista, this printer is not supported in that OS. Nor is this printer supported in any Mac OS.

Go to this link. Select Windows XP in the Select OS box. Download the driver and follow instructions to install the driver. Do not connect or turn on the printer until the installation program tells you to do so.

No lo encontrarás.

Utiliza el mismo para Windows XP, cuando lo instales presiona "Continue Anyway" (o su equivalente en Español). Esto debe funcionar, hasta la fecha Vista aún no tiene soporte para tu modelo de Canon.

Suerte!

The question is: "I cannot find the controller for a Canon BJC-250 Printer for Windows Vista"
CoolDragon's Answer:
You won't find it.
Use the same one for Windows XP, when you install it press "continue anyway" until today, Vista has no support for that model of Canon printer.

Printer problem


here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away) http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0023758.asp?model= Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp; http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0018984_0000424.asp?model= but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver this link has dos drivers for the bcj80; http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
