Try the simple solution first. Uninstall the printer, reboot and reinstall. See if you can print a test page from the printer itself to make sure it still works period. If you can't print the self test page (which is the printer talking to itself) the computer won't be any better.

My BJC-85 printer is only printing blank pages when i send stuff to the printer. I have tried cleaning and ink test etc.


I am having same trouble with my BJC 85, and my Canon i70 and i80 printers. It always starts that the ink gets weak on the paper, then stops printing. I have tried deep cleanings.....several dozens.....and doesn't do anything. So then, I have cleaned the print head by soaking in alcohol or merely dabbing with Qtip of alcohol, and old ink usually is dissolved. But then I have NEVER been able to get a cleaned print head to accept ink thru. I have even added ink to the print head itself, and just wont print anything.
Some other sites speak about soaking it in warm water to dissolve old ink, I'm going to try that as last resort, but after that, I really don't know what to do. I have NEVER had this problem with my 85's before. They've been extremely faithful workhorses, but since last year, getting cheap ink online made in China has clogged up the printers.
I do not have any error messages, so don't have to deal with that. But just perplexed why the print heads won't work, especially after cleaning with alcohol. They just seem to shut off.

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.

BJC -85 Setup Software wil not download to Vista...not compatable.....What can be done to se the Printer/Scanner on my computer with Vista.


As the link (http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=OSCompatibilitySupportAct&keycode=vistadr&fcategoryid=230&modelid=6620) in Mike's solution states, "Driver included with OS. Download not required.", i.e. Vista comes with a driver for the BJC-85 so you don't need to download one. I've just connected my BJC-85 to my new Vista machine and the printer was detected and drivers loaded automatically.

Canon bjc-3000 is not printing


Has the software for the printer been installed in your computer? Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but I did the same thing, and it turned out I hadn't installed the software yet so it didn't recognize the printer.
