Question about Canon BJC 55 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Not printing from one computer

I have a 7-year-old Canon BJC-55 printer. This morning it refused to accept printing instructions from my Mac OS X, ejecting the paper after giving every indication of starting printing, followed by one beep then a orange error light (not flashing) and a green flashing light. I have used this printer with my Mac for the last year without any problems. I also use the printer with an old PC Windows 98, and I tested it on the PC and the printer still works fine with that, so it would appear not to be an internal problem with the printer. Should I perhaps try reinstalling the software in the Mac?
Thank you very much. Denise.

If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.

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.

Won't print


If your ink tanks are good, reset the EEProm:
Power off the printer.
Unplug it, then plug it back in.
Wait until it stops its initialization sequence.
Press and hold the power button.
Allow the printer to beep 7 times, then release the power button.
This will reset the EEProm to factory default, and should clear your problem.

Driver for Mac


As what is listed in apple's support site

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1468

Gimp is the only tested driver by them.
Personally I wont trust a 3rd party driver other than gimp and guttenprint because these drivers have been tested by apple team. Other than gimp seems like the only available driver in canon's site are for os 8 and os 9.
