Canon BJC 80 New Cable Required

Hi, I have a Canon BJC 80 portable printer which I love as I travel a lot. I recently bought a new Toshiba Satellite laptop and can’t find a cable adaptor to suit, I have bought some parallel port adaptors but they don’t fit. Is it possible to get a direct replacement cable from the BJC 80 (which has an old small cable connection) to a USB type connection?

    Been there and it does not work, They do not have the correct Molex connection from the printer.

Hi, I have a canon BJC-80 printer& I am using vista. The printer will not print. It has printed twice. But a time delay of about 30 minutes. My laptop is toshiba & I have a usb cable plugged into...


try to remove the cartridge and print it again. Try also to unplug/replug the USB and restart your printer to check if it prints. You may also use another pc to connect the printer and print. Otherwise call Canon to check it for a possible repair...

Canon BJC 80 prints blank pages!!


i think u already solved your problem...your printer's problem is its printer head...u cannot solve this problem by fixing it yourself.all u can do is to buy new printer head at printer's shop. it is true because i got the same problem with my BJC 200.i do the same solution as u r and lastly, i go to the technician and he said i need to replace my printer head at some price.....just think bout money n i discover that buy a new one is better(as for my problem)

not to discourage u, but try to plan either to buy new printer head or buy a new printer....

hope this solution help... ; )

Cable for USB conversion


YES. THERE ARE SEVERAL USB-PARALELL CABLES CABLES IN THE MARKET. JUST CHECK IN THE WEB OR YOUR HARDWARE STORE. PRICE SHOULD BE AROUND 15 TO 20 US DOLLARS, DEPENDING ON BRAND, QUALITY, ETC.
SOME OF THE (MOST) BRIG A DRIVER CD.
ONE THING YOU SHOULD HAVE IN MIND IS THAT WHEN INSTALLING YOU BJC-80 IT WONT PRINT UNLESS YOU GO TO PRINTER PROPERTIES, PORTS AND UNMARK "BIDERECTIONAL COMPATIBILITY", THE GO TO ADVANCED OPTIONS AND CHECK ON "PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER", OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. (SORRY ALL MY SOFT IS IN SPANISH...) RESTART THA COMPUTER AND ENJOY. I HAVE A BJC-70 AND A BJC-80, USE THEM ON XP SP2 AND VISTA. BOTH WORKING FINE. DO NOT EXPECT SPEED PERFORMANCE. GOOD LUCK

BJC -85 Setup Software wil not download to Vista...not compatable.....What can be done to se the Printer/Scanner on my computer with Vista.


As the link (http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=OSCompatibilitySupportAct&keycode=vistadr&fcategoryid=230&modelid=6620) in Mike's solution states, "Driver included with OS. Download not required.", i.e. Vista comes with a driver for the BJC-85 so you don't need to download one. I've just connected my BJC-85 to my new Vista machine and the printer was detected and drivers loaded automatically.

Canon bjc 80 printer- no driver- ibm thinkpad laptop- compatible?


You can download the software from Canon.

Here is the page to download the driver from:

BJC Support

Click on the "Drivers & Downloads" tab. Select your operating system from the dropdown menu. (Windows 98)

Click on the red link for the driver BJ_v397.exe.

When the download window opens, select "Save" and select a location you know how to access after the download. For an easy way, save it to your Desktop.

After the download, connect the printer, turn it on. Then run (doubleclick) the file you saved.

My canon bjc-80 will not print


BJC-80, USB to PARALLEL cable & XP problem solved! I read all the comments, instructions, etc. and was ready to give up, but posed the problem to my son (who has a computer repair business, duh), and I'm not sure I have this correct he simply Dis-abled the bi-directional communications in the set up, gave the cable and printer a designated USB port, got the driver for the BJC-80 ... not BJC-85 ... and it works fine. I do not have the scanner cartridge but I have 2 BJC-80s and love them but gave up when got the new computer. Well, I just ran off 2 pages after cleaning the cartridges and cartridge holder with alcohol on TP, because they had dried up hard, and it works great in both B&W & color, at least on draft mode so far. (My son will not post anything because he does not want a bunch of calls coming in, and I don't know any more, but I just could not bring myself to give up these great little printers for on the go Realtors, etc. without another good old college try). Glad to have my printers back! Good luck.

Have Toshiba laptop with XP and Canon BJC-80; can these work together?


There is no driver available from Canon for Windows XP (see here).

There is no driver available for your printer on Windows XP, the only drivers on google are either viruses or spyware software, do not install any of them.

Printer problem


here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away) http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0023758.asp?model= Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp; http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0018984_0000424.asp?model= but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver this link has dos drivers for the bcj80; http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
