Question about Canon S400 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer identity crisis

When I switch my canon S400, it now identifies as a BJ F360. This has happened after the waste ink full error code was reset. Apparently the F360 was the japanese version. Can anyone help me to solve my printer's identity crisis.

    As I cannot locate a driver for a BJ F360,I cannot use the printer. If the model identifier can be accidentily changed from S400 to BJ F360, it hopefully can be changed back. Sarcasm solves nothing. Can anyone offer a solution. Thanks in advance.

  • Terry Kokkeler Jun 19, 2007

    Problem solved. Had to uninstal printer, roll back driver, disconnect printer, manually instal driver for S400, then reconnect printer. This sequence only, worked. Why?, Who knows, who cares, it worked. Thank you.

Does it matter? It does not turn your prose into pictgrams does it or images into picures of Fuji in the spring?

    You said 'Sarcasm solves nothing'
    I am not being sarcastic
    The driver should be common
    If you have printer software installed- uninstall it.
    Go to/Start printers/faxes- where you see the installed printer- delete it[right click delete.]
    Leaving the printer attached- new hardware found should come up.
    Ignore the CD- to find on list
    Select make - Canon
    Select Model S400 [BJF360 may also be listed] make your selection and click install.

    The Canon Web site may be helpful
    Also www.fixyourownprinter.com
    may help

    The drivers installed in the O/S libary are the bare escape items - no frills
    As I mentioned these work.

Receive message 345 and alarm which prevents operation.


Other Canon models "may" be repaired with these instructions also, for example MP370, MP390, etc. Try with your own risk.


Symptoms:
-Grinding noise (very loud)
-Flashes error code ##345

Error code ##345 = "BJ cartridge head cleaning error" -reasons for this are:
-Foreign material or dried ink in head cleaning unit (also known as "purge unit") , or waste ink pump jammed up. Make sure waste ink pump rotates freely, after cleaning. Clean the waste pump-hose too! Waste ink pump is located under head cleaning system.

Short solution:
1.Take apart and wash the ink clogged mechanical parts. Use hot water.
2. Reset waste ink counter

purge unit: HM1-0723-000

I hope this is useful

My printer needs to have the waste ink reset how do I do this


You can try this....
  1. Turn off Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers
  2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
  3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
  4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
  5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
  6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
  7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
  8. Your Canon S300, S400, S9000 Printers should respond as normal.
But this happens because the waste tank is full. You need to locate it and use a paper towel to absorb the waste ink. Whenever the printer cleans itself ( when a new cartridge is installed, for example) some ink is cycled into this chamber. So if you reset and it is full, overflow may occur.....

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.)
