Question about Canon BJC-85 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Printer skips every other line when it prints

Makes print look like it went through a vanition blind. System usually prints ok for the first page then it does the above from then on until shut down for the period. I have cleaned the heads multiple times and replaced the print cartridge several times.

    I have a vista HP laptop that will not let me reinstall from the disc or download from the internet. The error light continues to flash. Any other recommendations? I am still in the same predicament.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A couple of ideas you may want to explore/consider:

  • if you are using parallel (LPT1), check the connectors (both ends) or replace the cable;
  • if you are using USB, you may need to re-install the drivers;
  • if using IrDA, you may need to re-check settings/configurations.
  • hardware wise, the motor/gear mechanism may need a looking over. Of particular interest would be for an worn, uneven, missing tooth in any of the gear including the tooth belt if used.
Pls post back any updates. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Please also Try---
    Look on the bottom of the cartridges - they have the nozzles. Its easy if there's something stuck on them. You should also clean the holding pen for the cartridges and the bottom of the cradles the cartridges sit in. Use a Q-Tip and alcohol. You should also check the contacts between the cartridge and printer to make sure they are clean.
    Thanks

Canon MP510 skips and makes 2 small blank lines going DOWN the pages, in only cyan and magenta. The two lines show up on the Nozzle Check Pattern but only on cyan and magenta.


If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magicis ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to usethe Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should beprinting again like new.

Printronix P5210 line printer HOF problem


If you are using a printer that has IGP enabled, you can set the printer to automatically go to the next TOF at the end of the print job. Only if you are using the Graphics portion (printing bar codes and graphics). The option is "Auto FF at ^PN" and you would Enable it.

When printing some lines don't print properly-appears to be just the top half or less of the line will print. It seems it happens every 3rd or 4th line, but has done it on the second line also, so is not...


Try printing out the test page from the printer, this will show you if any of the inkjet holes are getting plugged. If you can't print a test page without the skipping try changing the ink cartridge(s), the test page will show you which one is clogging.
