    Canon s 4500. Put in new cartridge and now beeps six times. Tried other cartridges same problem. Tried connecting to a different computer where printer is installed and used to work....no go. Help?

    I have the same problem.

    Canon S4500

    Just brought my printer out of hibernation (three years in a box).
    I have used ink flush to clean the print heads, and installed new cartridges, and all contacts look sound. The printer does not need to be connected to a computer to produce the six bleeps.

    Is there any form of reset code for this printer?

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

I am using a canon bj 200ex bubble jet printer but recently it strated to leave out strips so that i cannot read the text properly, how can i adjust it?


The BJ200 is quite an old printer. The problem you're describing is indicative of a head failure. If replacing the cartridge doesn't work, you may have a faulty head. If the cartridge includes the print-head (some do) it could be the contact strip on the cartridge cradle.

My honest advice would be to retire this printer, and buy a new one. Even the most basic model you can buy now would exceed the bj200ex in both quality and speed - and would be inexpensive to buy.

I OWN A CANON BJ-10sx printer. It works fine.


Please go to www.usa.canon.com

Search for the compatible cartridge for your printer. That particular printer is so old that the cartridge design more than likely changed.

    Problem on a canon 3100


    The Power Light Flashes Orange - Error Codes When an error occurs, the power light flashes orange. The number of orange flashes followed by a long green flash indicates the cause of the problem.
    Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error
    If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing.
    Three orange flashes: Paper jam
    If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink
    Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing.
    Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed
    Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely.
    Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective
    Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
    Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full
    The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing.
    The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error
    A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. Count the number of flashes. (You may be asked this information.)

    Canon BJ 200 InkJet Printer Problem


    Hello Ruth:

    Somewhere on this website should be my comments on your problem but I can't find them, so here's a repeat. Sounds like the print head is clogged. With power on, press the Online and Print Mode buttons simultaneously until the lights to the left of the Online button blink. Normally, this takes a few seconds. This is the recommended cleaning procedure for this printer head. If no success, repeat this a few times. If no success, replace your ink cartridge with a Canon BC-02 black ink cartridge (if not already using this) and use the above cleaning procedure before trying to print. If unsuccessful, try a printer repairman.

    Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper If the print quality is poor or no ink is appearing on the page, it may be because of the following problems:
    • The ink in the BJ tanks has run out.
    • The print head nozzles may be clogged.
    • The protective cap or tape may have been reattached to the BJ cartridge.
    • The BJ cartridge may need to be replaced.
    • You may be using the wrong side of the media.
    To check the level of ink in the BJ tanks
    Open the printer's front cover and visually check the level of the ink in all the BJ tanks. If a BJ tank is low or has run out of ink, replace it. Failure to do so may shorten the life of your BJ Cartridge
    Check the status of the print heads by printing a Nozzle Check Pattern
    The Nozzle Check Pattern confirms whether the inks are being correctly ejected from the print head nozzles and whether the print head is correctly aligned.
    1. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until the printer light flashes two times.

    2. When you release the button, the Nozzle Check Pattern will be printed.

      You can also print the Nozzle Check Pattern by clicking on the Test Print button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

    3. After the Nozzle Check Pattern is printed, check the results.

    4. Look at the Nozzle Check Pattern for each BJ cartridge. If any colors are missing or if any horizontal lines are broken or missing, perform the print head cleaning procedure.

    5. In the alignment head pattern, if the lines are not perfectly overlapped, align the print heads.
    To perform the print head cleaning procedure
    1. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until the printer light flashes one time.

    2. When you release the button, the print head will be cleaned.

      You can also clean the print head by clicking the left Print Head Cleaning button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

    3. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. This will continue for about 30 seconds. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.
    4. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.

    5. If the results are satisfactory, resume normal printing.

    6. If the results are not satisfactory, you may need to execute a print head deep cleaning.
    To execute a print head deep cleaning
    1. Make sure paper is loaded in the sheet feeder and the printer is turned on.

    2. Display the printer properties dialog box and click the Maintenance tab.

    3. Click the right Print Head Cleaning button.

    4. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.

    5. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.
    If the Nozzle Check Pattern is still unsatisfactory, you may need to execute a print head alignment.
    To execute a print head alignment
    1. In Windows, display the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

    2. Click the right Test Print button.

    3. Follow the instructions on the screens to perform an automatic print head alignment.

    4. A confirmation screen will ask you if you want to perform automatic print head alignment. Read the screen and click OK.

    5. Another screen warns you not to start any other operation until the alignment is complete. Again, click OK.

    6. The BJ Printer Status Monitor displays the Printer Status. The driver will align the print heads then will print an alignment pattern.

    7. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.
    If the Nozzle Check Pattern is still unsatisfactory, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
    To replace a BJ Tank in a BJ Cartridge
    Leave the BJ cartridge in the printer when replacing a BJ tank. Make sure the printer's power is on. Make sure you insert the BJ tank in the correct slot.
    1. Open the front cover.

    2. The power light blinks while the cartridge holder is positioned to the center of the printer.

    3. Remove the empty BJ tank by pressing in on the release tab and then lifting the BJ tank up and out of its slot.

    4. Dispose of the tank properly, taking care to avoid spilling ink on your hands, floor, furniture, or clothing.

    5. Remove the new BJ tank from its package and pull the orange tape up and against the perforations to open the package film.

    6. Be careful not to remove the label from the tank. You will need it to match the tank to the correct slot in the BJ cartridge.

    7. Twist the orange protective cap to remove it.

    8. Do not attempt to reattach the protective cap; instead, discard it along with the protective tape.

    9. Insert the BJ tank by holding it at a slight angle, aligning it with the correct slot. Press down gently on the top of the tank until it locks into place.

    10. Lock the ink tank in place by pressing down on the circle mark on the top of the tank.

    11. Close the printer cover.

    12. The printer will automatically start cleaning the print heads. When the print heads are clean, the POWER light will stay on, indicating that the printer is ready for operation.

    13. Perform another test print to make sure the new ink tanks are performing correctly.
    To remove the protective cap and tape from the BJ cartridge
    1. Open the printer's front cover.

    2. Unlock the BJ cartridge by raising the cartridge lock lever. Make sure you raise it all the way up.

    3. Remove the BJ cartridge by holding it by the circles on the left and right sides.

    4. Make sure that the orange protective cap has been removed.

    5. Make sure that the protective tape has also been removed.

    6. Replace the BJ cartridge and move the blue cartridge lock lever until it locks in place.
    To check the media:
    • Make sure that you are printing to the correct side of the media that you are using.
    • Be sure to read any instructions that come with your Canon specialty paper. These instructions provide important information regarding how to achieve the highest print quality with these papers.

    Canon MP510 wont recognise cartridges


    Using replacement cartridges that come without a chip seems to be the problem I had with the Canon Pixma 510 printer they are cheaper
    but if they do not show the ink levels then its inconvienent so I have but Canon products with a chip and they work perfectly.
