Cartridge mismatch error message

After years of no problems my old 85 has suddenly decided that I cannot print a high quality colour picture on glossy photo paper. It says there is a cartridge mismatch and I must fit a BC-11e cartridge which is in fact the one that is fitted. I have tried other 11e's, everything in fact except reinstalling it because I can't find the disk. Any help would be much appreciated, I only have small space to work in and the 85 fits in snugly. Ta.

SOURCE: Isn't printing at all...

I would not go out and buy new cartridges without trying the following. Go into the procedure of removing and re-installing the cartridges. While the cartridges are out, inspect for probable damage to the cartrigdes. Sometimes there can accumulate waste inks and interfere with the contacts. With a damp Q-tip, clean the contacts and wipe it dry. Concerned about the lint on the Q-tip? Use coffee filter. A readily available lint-free wipe. Re-install the cartridges and test. BTW, are you using genuine Canon inks? 3rd party inks can exhibit that error. Best Regards.

There is a small switch in the bottom of the carriage where the ink goes, if it is broken you will need a new carriage assembly.

SOURCE: Looking for a spare part for replacement - BC 11e,

They are available on eBay, just search for BC-11e and usually a dozen are on sale. Just make sure to get a brand new one, not a used one.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Hp4355 print catridge error


Each cartridge having printing life, as long as cartridge health condition is good it won't gives any trouble. Subjected series printer having mono & colour cartridges,1. Remove both cartridge from the printer 2. Switch on & wait till message appears for insert the cartridges..3. Insert mono(Black) cartridge, close the door & wait till message appears on screen. If message appears same as cartridge error mean that mono cartridge is faulty replace it, if message appears like insert another cartridge, it's confirmed that colour cartridge faulty.. Replace it..

BJC 85 not printing after head replacement


I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.

Not enough information provided by poster.

What is the exact model of the printer and who is the manufacturer?

Just as a FYI the error codes are in Hexadecimal. This is signified by the "0x" prefix. The codes are "C1 9A 00 24 and "C1 9A 00 22". Without the make and model of the printer you cannot track down the error codes.

Hello tabbeach. The printing cartridge align page message appears if u have any alignment job pending, if it asks to print the alignment page. Follow the steps provided here.
Still if u are facing the same issue, perform a HP Media sense caliberation , which in most cases will resolve the issue
the steps to perform media sense calibration are provided here .
gud luck

Printer not printing at all


Though there was no message to indicate toner issues, I changed the cartridge anyway. That must have been the problem. It works now. The old cartridge was 3 years old and, though barely used, may have outlived its quality. Thanks for writing back.

Canon Pixma MP780 "Wrong Cartridge" Error Message


I have two Pixma 780's. After getting the "wrong cartridge" error one day when I turned it on, (I knew it was the right cartridge) I tried switching ink tanks, and the print head cartridge several times between the two printers. the problem followed the black print head cartridge, so I am guessing I need a new one. From that experience, I would recomend swithing the print cartridge if you get this error. Does anyone know how to do a reset on this machine? A Canon tech told me once, but I lost the info.

My canon i960 is printing only green


I had this problem. If I tried to print a black& white photo on to glossy paper, it would only print green. When I tried on to plain paper using the 'fast' option, it printed in black. The reason for this is, on plain paper it uses the black cartridge, but output to glossy photo paper using the 'high' option, uses the mix of colours in your colour cartridge. If one or more of your colours has run out, you will get a print with the ink left in the cartridge. Replace the cartridge or refill it & your problem is solved.
