Question about Canon BJC 85 InkJet Printer
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.

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.

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.
