By APC are you refering to an APC UPS? If so it is probablt because the printer is overloading the UPS. You should not plug printers into UPS's

It appears code e733


This is a potential answer, taken from a series of Image Runner 1133A complaints with the e733 error .....

Check the voltage to ensure that the machine is getting the proper voltage. According to this error code, the voltage supply is not consistent or the power fluctuates on the receptacle where the printer is plugged in. To provide the printer with a consistent source of "computer grade power", read the notes below:

Most printers require "computer grade voltage".
The best way to supply "computer grade voltage is to use an APC battery backup. Ensure that the battery backup is capable of running the proper amperage needing by the printer. (check the printer specifications).

http://www.apc.com/shop/us/en/categories/power/uninterruptible-power-supply-ups-/computer-and-peripheral/back-ups/_/N-1nzwthz

You might contact APC to see if they will allow you to try a Battery Backup to see if it will correct the power problem.

Find a supplier that will enable you to return the product if that does not fix the discrepancy. (usually a well known electronics or dept. store that will accept returns with a receipt within "x" number of days);
That will enable you to test the battery backup with the printer to see if it fixes the problem.

When it starts up it goes thru the steps then the error light comes on and it will not print. I put in a new ink cartridge and it did not help


The 8 beep error you are getting is a waste ink tank full error. The BJC 85 has a waste ink " tank " that is actually a series of absorbent cotton pads in the bottom of the printer. When these pads fill with ink, the printer is designed to produce that error and stop printing until the pads are replaced.

I can give you a work around to this and get you printing, but you must understand that, because the waste ink absorber is full, ink will eventually start leaking out into the bottom of your printer and either leak out of the printer, or end up shorting out the main circuit board , which is also in the bottom.

Here is the work around that will reset the printer and get you printing again:

1. Shut off the printer and unplug it from the power supply.

2. While holding down BOTH the POWER and RESUME buttons, plug the power supply back in. KEEP HOLDING DOWN the buttons until after the printer does it's initial actuation and then goes quiet again, then let go of the buttons. .

3. With the fingers of one hand Hold down the RESUME and CARTRIDGE buttons and with the other hand hold down the POWER button. Listen for 2 BEEPS. they will not be loud, and one will be longer than the other. When you hear the 2 beeps, let go of all the buttons.

4. Now press the CARTRIDGE button 15 times. You will hear a beep each time it' pressed. Make sure you count the beeps correctly.

5. After you have pressed the cartridge button 15 times, then press the RESUME button. The printer will beep and shut off.

6. Press the POWER button and the printer will power on and be ready to print. At this point, the printer will have been reset to indicate the waste ink is 50% full.

If you make a mistake, you can unplug the prnter and start over from step 1 at any time.

REMEMBER: Your waste ink pads are still FULL. You need to either replace the pads, or replace the printer before to much time goes by. If you see any ink leaking out the bottom of the printer, definitely stop using it.

Printer will not stop printing


Shut down your operating system (in windows, start, shutdown...) If while the computer is off the printer continues to print then power down the printer. You should be able to hold down the power button if it doesn't power off right away. If that doesnt work you can pull the power plug on it as a last resort. Leave it disconnected, boot into windows, go into control panel (start, control panel) go to printers, double click on the printer in question and verify there are no print jobs attempting to print. Let me know what you find =).

Printer not communicating with computer


(1) Try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

(2) Update the USB drivers

Printer Surge


I agree with first thought circuit overload.

I dont think it is the printer, I think it is your power supply in house. Just moving it to another socket does not change it from what might already be a circuit with a lot of load already.

You are experenceing surges that are normal operation ie at power on quatz lamp turns on reaching temp of 180 deg cel, then idles, if print command is issued back on comes the lamp drawing power.

Printer crashes PC running XP home ed.


With symptoms like that, is the printer power cord plugged into the PC's uninteruptible power supply? NO Laser printer should be connected to a UPS, as the internal heating wand/assembly draws way too many watts, as does the rest of the printer. In this scenario, the PC would shut OFF due to the UPS being momentarily overloaded. Plug the printer into a separate surge protector. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"
