Question about Computers & Internet

Error light and 6 beeps upon startup, therefore the printer won't print anything.

My cannon BJC-4000 gave me an error light and 6 beeps one morning I started it up. I replace the complete printer head with the BC-21e which has fixed the problem in the past, but this time it did not. Is there anything else I can do to determine what is wrong to fix it?

Is the BC-21e new, or refilled?
I know Cannon brand new cost so much more, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet.
I had a Cannon Multipass C2500.
Sometimes even a new cartridge isn't good enough. I used to exchange between that one and the all black cartridge, because the all black has twice the resolution. Even with very careful handling, not touching anything metal, they still went bad.
My best suggestion, short of another expensive cartridge is to remove the cartridge, take a soft pink pencil eraser and lightly erase all the contacts on the printer and the cartridge. Look for any of the spring loaded contacts in the printer that are stuck. Do not touch the contacts on the cartridge as they are unbelievably static sensitive. If you see ink on the contacts, use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to remove it.
Most likely though, it will take yet another cartridge with head to fix it. (That's why I gave up on mine and got a different brand.)

    Not printing from one computer


    If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
    If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.
