Question about Canon BJC-85 InkJet Printer
I haven't used my Canon BJC-85 for printing in years, although it gets used for scanning quite a lot without any problems. But now my daughter wants to use it to print stuff, so I bought new cartridges replaced the old ones, but nothing works. It makes all the right start up noises when its switched on but then I get lots of beeps and two flashing lights. I've looked after it well so can't work out why its suddenly not working.
Running Win XP but I get the same thing when I plug it into my old Win 98 laptop
Good to excellent chance that by not using the ink jet for "years" that they are hopelessly clogged. You can try the cleaning procedure but I'd bet that your lack of use has ruined the ink jet portion.
I had this happen to me and went through (and wasted) a lot of time and money cleaning the printer and trying to get ink to come through.
On the bright side You have a lovely scanner. Time to go buy a printer. Sorry but I think your "printing in years" is probably a self imposed problem created by lack of use. Ink's pesky and clogs if it's not spit through at regular interfals.
