Question about Canon BJC 6000 InkJet Printer
The printer Beeps 6 times and Power Light flashes orange. According to the printer guide the ink cartridge is installed in the incorrect location. It is in the correct location. I even purchased a new Black ink tank and cartridge and installed it because I thought it may be old and clogged. The printer still beeps 6 times as soon as I turn the printer on. It doesn't even go through the startup giration before it beeps. Any ideas????
The 6 beeps along with the orange light stands for "Re-install BJ cartridge or replace it". You might have already fixed the problem by replacing the cartridge, and you're still stuck with the error indication. Waste Error Reset 1: Power off printer 2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once. 3: Hold POWER and release RESUME 4: Press RESUME twice 5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange. 6: Press Power to set data If it still doesn't go away, try cleaning the contacts the cartridge makes with the printhead. Dip the carts contacts(dipping only the contact area) in shallow hot water for a minute, then wipe dry with a cloth that doesn't shed fiber. Also clean the contacts on the printhead using a damp cloth, maybe also some alcohol. If it still doesn't go away you have to think of replacing the printhead, or chucking it. Good luck
