The manual for the BJ-30 can be found here: http://downloadlibrary.usa.canon.com/cpr/pdf/Manuals/BJ30_user_manual.pdf On page 97 (105 of 183) it indicates your error message. Unfortunately, it does not give a way to resolve the issue other than bringing the device in for repair. I then came across this page which is a bit more descriptive with the error codes. http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/canon/bj/bj30.htm F12 is aPrintHead Temperature Error. It suggests trying to install a NEW print head. if the problem continues, the printer will require service.

Error 5200 shows when trying to print. Not listed in the user manual.


I found a few answers http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/canon/bj/s400.htm

error 5200 indicates print head overheating. You might try printing 1/3 of document, pausing for cooling then print second 1/3, pausing for cooling then print final 1/3 as a work around.

Looks like thr repair cost is more than a brand new Multifunction printer/scanner

Is the Canon BJ-30 a color printer?


Nope. Canon BJ-30 is not a color printer.
It is same as BJC-70 but only the color printing ability is not available in it.
BJ-30 is Black & White inkjet printer with max 360x360 dpi.
Hope this helps.

    Will not print


    Check on Canon.com, for the users manual, When you install cartridges you hold the resume button for the number of beeps to identify which cartridge is installed. You can install one black ink or one each black and color but you have to tell the printer which is installed.

    Grabbing paper


    Hi, This is Roger D
    There is a tool called a "Manual Feed Guide" made by Canon for this problem. The part number is MG-10 not sure if it is still available. It is usable in the BJC 85 as well.
    I have one, sadly not for sale as I have two of this series of printer BJ30 and BJC 75.
    It comes with an instruction manual as well. It uses plain water on the guide to clean the roller.It would be better to ring Canon than trying via the net as thats how I got mine.

    Canon BJ 200 InkJet Printer Problem


    Hello Ruth:

    Somewhere on this website should be my comments on your problem but I can't find them, so here's a repeat. Sounds like the print head is clogged. With power on, press the Online and Print Mode buttons simultaneously until the lights to the left of the Online button blink. Normally, this takes a few seconds. This is the recommended cleaning procedure for this printer head. If no success, repeat this a few times. If no success, replace your ink cartridge with a Canon BC-02 black ink cartridge (if not already using this) and use the above cleaning procedure before trying to print. If unsuccessful, try a printer repairman.

    Canon BJ-30 Bubble jet printer F-12 error


    Hi, According to my BJ-30 & BJC-70 user manual, if F12 is blinking, it is required for this Error code to get in touch with a Canon Service Centre. I had this in the past and being curious I removed the printer chassis from case the and found the problem to be a loose ribbon cable in the connector on the main board from the touch pad circut board . I also had the identical problem with my BJC-70. These printers are very reliable and compact, it seems to be a problem which I think comes about from these printers being so portable. It took me about 15 minutes to fix the problem for which I have made a small modification to hold the cable in place. Having said this, it may not necessarly be your problem but it is a starting point. Canon to my mind have not made another portable printer this good, so if you value it and can find a trustworthy technician get it fixed. If you want further info contact me here.
    Regards Roger D

    First of all, Back up your configuration by printing it.
    [Menu] --> [Reports/Lists] --> [User Data List]

    then go back to main menu

    [Menu] --> [#] , it will display #SSSW
    Use the [+] [-] buttons till you see [#CLEAR]
    Press [OK]

    That resets all the configs and status flags.
    With the initial step in hand, you are ready to setup you device and we all live happily ever after.
