You most likely have a failed printhead and the head will need replacing. Alternatively your ink system assy is not pruging the head and thus faulty and may need replacing. If the unit is under canon warranty, take it to your local canon service centre with your proof or purchase. If not you can try to run a few cleans, but in my experience this will not help if the head or ink system is at all faulty.

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.

Bought used BJC-85 - feeds paper - won't print with new cartridge. Must have been dry too long. Where do I get a print head for it? Or a cleaning kit? I need it right away for a trip.

No need to change the print head. Just carry out all the maintenance tasks with the new cartridge. Make sure that you remove the thin plastic film from the ink pad. All you have to do is to click on printer/faxes in control. Click on properties in the drop down menu. Click on the maintenance and carry out each task i.e. print head cleaning, alignment, nozzles cleaning etc.

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 Not printing. New BC-10 and BCI-10. Paper loads normally

The problem you are having is with the print head and not the printer. Unfortunately, with these canon print heads, they are not dated, so it is possible to install a print head that was bought new and sealed, but is still dried out because it is old.

Try running the print head through one deep cleaning cycle, this sometimes will start to get an old print head flowing.

Deep cleaning cycle can be found by going to PRINTERS , right clicking on the BJC icon, selecting PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, and then selecting the MAINTAINENCE tab.

Check to make sure that the ink tank in the print head isn't dry. Even a new print head can have a dry tank if it's old.
