BJC-80, USB to PARALLEL cable & XP problem solved! I read all the comments, instructions, etc. and was ready to give up, but posed the problem to my son (who has a computer repair business, duh), and I'm not sure I have this correct he simply Dis-abled the bi-directional communications in the set up, gave the cable and printer a designated USB port, got the driver for the BJC-80 ... not BJC-85 ... and it works fine. I do not have the scanner cartridge but I have 2 BJC-80s and love them but gave up when got the new computer. Well, I just ran off 2 pages after cleaning the cartridges and cartridge holder with alcohol on TP, because they had dried up hard, and it works great in both B&W & color, at least on draft mode so far. (My son will not post anything because he does not want a bunch of calls coming in, and I don't know any more, but I just could not bring myself to give up these great little printers for on the go Realtors, etc. without another good old college try). Glad to have my printers back! Good luck.

I have a Canon BJC 80 InkJet Printer. I have it connected to my laptop using a parallel USB cable. The problem I'm having is that whenever I try to print anything, it will sit there for about 5 minutes...


I could be wrong but it sounds like a communication error between your laptop and the printer, I would check that your Canon is compatible with being connected via a USB to parallel cable. If you're running a network you could install the printer onto a PC that has a parallel connection output and then share the printer. More info can be found at this link.

Won't Print


This is a temperature error, and may be caused by a defective print head. If replacing the print head does not fix it, the main board is defective.

My bjc-80 wont print after sitting for several months. the only change was a usb connector to my new dell fresh cartridges.


  1. Make sure printer is turned on.

  2. Press and hold the RESUME button for at least two seconds until the printer beeps twice.

  3. The POWER light will blink for several seconds while the print head is being cleaned.
If three print head cleanings do not correct the issue, you may need to replace the BC ink cartridge.

Canon bjc 240/orange light stays on


The blinking orange light could mean one or more of the following: -Home position error -Waste ink full error -Temperature sensor error -Printing position correction error -Cleaning error -Printer memory error I would probably clean the waste ink tank first. Make sure you unplug it first. Take the cartridge out and clean real good at the bottom.
