Chances are you haven't installed all the driver software required for your printer or you have a very dodgy USB connection.

Try checking that all your software has been installed successfully and that you haven't missed anything for say the fax functionality (assuming it has this).

Also, try a new USB cable and in a new socket (preferably one at the back of the computer).

This MAY solve the problem but no guarantees... Best of luck.

I found that some Windows Plug and Play services were note running and were set to start 'manually'. I started those services which seemed related to Plug and Play, and the installation went without further errors.

I have window vista in my laptop and I need the driveer for a canon bjc-85 bubble jet printer


Microsoft Windows Vista shall auto detect and recognize your device.
Normally most of the drivers are aleady available with Vista Os.

Step 1:
Connect the Printer to the system
Vista will auto detect this
Step 2:
When the pop-up windows appear stating new hardware found
Try to choose one from
Maufacturer >> Canon >> Check the BJC-85

But in case if you have tried to install driver form Windows XP CD
Please delete it and/or uninstall it entirely.

I hope this resolves you query
all the best

Dear dgthorpe,
This indicates that printhead of your printer faulty. Commonly this problem come with short circuitry problem in printhead so it may harm logic board and carriage unit too. I suggest you to try checking with another printhead first.

Ip4200 - printing issues!


Hi, Perhaps you can try: remove the USB connection of the printer; uninstall and remove all drivers of the Canon IP4200; reboot your PC; plug in your usb to the PC from the printer; power on your printer; let windows auto detect "New Hardware found"; let windows auto install drivers; test print. If after plugging in your usb and powering your printer Windows did not auto detect "New Hardware found", it's possible that your printer's usb cable is defective. If Windows auto detected the Canon IP4200 and auto installed all the necessary drivers but failed in the test print, repeat above steps but instead of auto install, use the original CD driver and not the new drivers (Let me choose which drivers I want". RESET - User manual is available from the Canon site. There are 2 versions, 1 is a Quick Start Guide in pdf and the other is a User's Manual (On-Screen). Both does not say anything about reset, however you may want to google "fix your own printer" and variations of resetting all sorts of printers are available. Some works, others are ... well you can always give it a try. Or in the On-Screen Manual,you can also try the Troubleshooting/Printing Does Not Start. Another thing that you can try is installing the printer in another PC using the old CD drivers and see if it works. If it does, then it is a driver issue with the new PC. If it does not, you're back to reset . Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
