SOURCE: CANON BJC-85 Won't print black...

It sounds like you only replaced the printer cartridge, not the print head. However, since it sat for an extended period the print head may need replacement. If you know of someone else that has a BJC-85 try their print head and see if that resolves the issue. You can buy both the head and cartridge together, but the cost about $45. Cartridges only come typically three to a package and are about $20.

SOURCE: Canon MP830 power outage while printing

My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.

SOURCE: ip1800 collecting printer status

The printer is trying to collect data of it's status. Meaning its trying to get info on the ink andso on. Make sure your ink is installed and everything is hooked up correctly. Wait a few minutes before trying to use it. If it still says collecting printer status wait a few minutes.

SOURCE: printer will not print, error code 5010 is

5010 is a scanner error, either worn out scan lamp or sensors. Canon only replaces the entire scan assembly, if you like I can get part number and price.

SOURCE: My MP830 won't print

Hi You can Try 2 things.

ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there



Next try.

It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

With the printer power on, unplug and then plug in the printer from/to the computer. This should force the printer to be reinstalled.
Check the printer status.
Click START>Control Panel>Devices and Printers>click on your printer. check the status for any error messages. On the printer status, delete all pending jobs. Once the printer status display shows that all pending jobs have been deleted, retry printing.
Let me know if printing is reestablished. Thanks.

It sounds like it is trying to print an alignment sheet, so that the printer can then scan the sheet, and see how bad it is off, if any. Start here.

Look in your user manual to see how to force an alignment check. There is also usually a setting in the driver as well (icon in the system tray near the clock).

Lexmark x1185 cartridge error msg


Step 1). Try cleaning the gold contacts on the print cartridge and on the printer itself with a pen eraser and a little alcohol.

Step 2). Uninstall the printer software and reinstall it.

Step 3). If the above two steps fail try a new cartridge. If none of these solutions work there is an electronic problem with the printer and it will have to be professionally diagnosed or replaced.

Hope this was of some help to you.
