SOURCE: Canon BJC 6000 Beeps and Power Light Flashes Orange

The 6 beeps along with the orange light stands for "Re-install BJ cartridge or replace it". You might have already fixed the problem by replacing the cartridge, and you're still stuck with the error indication. Waste Error Reset 1: Power off printer 2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once. 3: Hold POWER and release RESUME 4: Press RESUME twice 5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange. 6: Press Power to set data If it still doesn't go away, try cleaning the contacts the cartridge makes with the printhead. Dip the carts contacts(dipping only the contact area) in shallow hot water for a minute, then wipe dry with a cloth that doesn't shed fiber. Also clean the contacts on the printhead using a damp cloth, maybe also some alcohol. If it still doesn't go away you have to think of replacing the printhead, or chucking it. Good luck

BJC-85 BEEPS 5 TIMES, ERROR LIGHT, ND POWER LIGHT BLIKING AT SAME TIME

Posted on Feb 15, 2008

SOURCE: Canon BJC 80 Printer

Try cleaning off the contacts on the ink carriage with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. The part that connects to the copper contacts on the printhead. You can't harm them by cleaning this way. And the alcohol evaporates pretty quick. Canon ink is 65% alcohol and this dissolves and cleans off ink residue on any part of the printer. Sometimes these contacts get dirty over time and won't read print heads installed any more. This fixes about half the printers like this I have problems with.

If cleaning doesn't help, and a new print head won't work, then the only fix is to replace the ink tank carriage assembly.

SOURCE: 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.

My mfc 6490cw isn't scanning and when i plug it in a female socket it power on but nothing show on the display and it beeps 3 time PLEASE HELP ME


I suspect the head has failed, try removing it and clean the electrical
contacts on the printhead and the ones they mate with in the printer with
Isopropyl alcohol (don't touch the head nozzles at the bottom of the
cartridge), if that does not work then a new printhead or printer (depending on
relative cost) is the only answer.

Replaced ink cartridges in epson stylus photo 300 error message (general error see your printer documentation about clearing problem)


general error normally comes if the printer carriage movement is obstructed
try doing the following
1 switch off the printer and switch on after some time and see that the head carriage moves properly or not if not than
2 look for obstruction in the carriage path
3 the cartiages installed might not be seated properly try reinstalling them

When I power up the BJC-85, the printer cycles through the start up process and then beeps three times and places the carriage in the replace cartridge position. I have changed cartridges and ink tanks...


The 3 beep error is a prompt that no print head is installed. The error is occurring because the printer no longer recognizes that a print head is installed. Normally , this is due to a defective print head. If you have replaced the print head with ONE YOU ARE CERTAIN IS GOOD, then the problem is in the printer. Try taking a cue tip soaked in isoprophyl ( rubbing) alcohol and cleaning the contact strip where the print head installs. The part in the printer. The area will feel flexible but you can clean it safely. Let the alcohol dry and try the print head again. If you still have the error, the only solution is a full service that involves replacing a major part of the print mechanism.

My canon i90 printer wont print. it appears to working perfect but the result is a blank paper. i have installed new cartiages & run all maintenance functions.


It sounds like the printhead is plugged, but there is also a firmware upgrade that helps position the printhead for better cleaning, Canon suggests you try deep cleaning 3 times in printer maint. from the properties menu before replacing the printhead. I use a syringe to put a couple drops of water on the cleaning pads on the right to help with cleaning.

No red color printing


Possible nozzle blockage, usually solved by physically squirting cleaning fluid into nozzle and letting soak for a while.
Printers are so cheap nowadays perhaps it might be worthwhile investing in something new!

Replaced printhead and ink cartiages on a Kodak ESP.3


I had my esp3 stop printing black also. I bought new cartridges even tho' I knew the ones in the printer were at least half full. Still not printing black. I finally called Kodak support and got a tech who was the first tech from India who could speak English well. He was very helpfull but in the end he told me he would send me the printer head because that was the problem. My printer was not used for about a month and the head dried up. The tech said that printer must be used about twice a week and the best way was to print the test by using the 'Scan' and 'Copy' at the same time. There was no sense telling the tech this is a huge flaw in the printer as he must have been hearing this for a long time. After I received the new printer head it prints fine. This is an absolutely huge flaw in this printer. If they can't make a different style of head for this printer these will stop being used................. So if you have the ESP3 (I don't know about the other models) and don't use it often the head will dry up and you can't clean it (according to the tech I talked to). Kodak should send these free for the life of the machine in my opinion.

BJC55 Printer not printing


There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

Hope these help.

After installing new ink cartiage it will not print


if you have a printer "clean nozzle" or "align heads" option you need to try those both.Also you may have to shake the cartridges a few times before you start .If you still get nothing,go to control panel and open printers.Next find your printer and right click it and make sure you have check mark next to "Default printer".You should be ok now.
