Hello Bigdave,

I understand how it feels when things don't work.
The error 5700 occurs mainly due to hardware malfunction. The error occurs mainly when the paper sensor stops working or is damaged.

How ever try reseating all the cables and also try uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Hope this works. If the issue persists the only way is to get it serviced.

But I suggest yo to go for a new printer instead of servicing the old one as it costs you more than buying a new one.

Thank you. Best of Luck.

No paper feed if less than 20 sheets in hopper


I had the same problem & it was suggested to adjust the rollers. I took the cover off & played with them & they fell down from a "stuck" positiion. I then left the cover off, taped down the device that moves the cartridges to the center (black movable tab) and hand fed a sheet to see if it was printing OK. It worked so I put it back together. I noticed that the feeding chute extension (goes up) which I had never used before & put it fully up. After printing with a stack of papers and then just a few it now works well with a glossy 8x10 perfectly. I think the change in angle of the paper you get when the paper doesn't bend due to the extension it the key.

I have a canon bjc 80 connected via usb to acer laptop with vista on says hardware successfully installed & sounds like it is printing but will not feed paper or print !! have not used a disc to install...


Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port adapter. the USB to parallel adapters are a pain to set up and are flakey at best. The PC card adapter provides a native parallel port to laptops without one, and works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge.

Printer always prin at the to of the page and then it will parer jam but no paper is in it to jam up I have a canon bjc-4200 and I like the print that it dose


hi there,
This problem mostly caused by another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in paper path prevent paper to reach paper cam sensor. Check inside your printer and clear paper path from another material. You can also try to clean paper feed roller. If problem still persist, replace paper feed roller

Printer problem


I found a small plastic "clip" of the type that covers the print-head of a cartridge in the mechanism where the printhead/inkcartridge is mounted. I have no idea where it came from nor how long it had been in there but the printer works OK after I removed it.

No Print


remove the cartridge and set it on an alcohol-soaked paper towel in the kitchen sink for about 15 minutes. If the towel has not begun to draw ink out, then tap cartridge firmly against your other hand which is holding the towel. if still none, then try heating the alcohol to about 150 degrees and repeat. if still nothing, then ink is either spent or cartridge head is dried up. take it to cartridge world (or similar outlet store) and they can get a cheap replacement.
