Canon BJC-6000 Recently started having problems with printer. The roller won't drop on the autopaper feed anymore. I have to drop it by hand after giving the print order, and the printer indicates no paper. Most recent beeped 10 times, unplugged as suggested in troubleshooting. Now it beeps 10 times, light flashes 4. Suggestions?

SOURCE: Canon BJC 6000 Beeps and Power Light Flashes Orange

The 6 beeps along with the orange light stands for "Re-install BJ cartridge or replace it". You might have already fixed the problem by replacing the cartridge, and you're still stuck with the error indication. Waste Error Reset 1: Power off printer 2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once. 3: Hold POWER and release RESUME 4: Press RESUME twice 5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange. 6: Press Power to set data If it still doesn't go away, try cleaning the contacts the cartridge makes with the printhead. Dip the carts contacts(dipping only the contact area) in shallow hot water for a minute, then wipe dry with a cloth that doesn't shed fiber. Also clean the contacts on the printhead using a damp cloth, maybe also some alcohol. If it still doesn't go away you have to think of replacing the printhead, or chucking it. Good luck

SOURCE: paper feed issues

Yeah i tried the cardboard as didnt work first time. but as i had no other choice, i did it 2-3 more times and eventually i heard a lot of noise and to my surprise my mailbox key popped out covered in ink...
so the cardboard seems to be the magical solution. not only does the printer work again but i also found my key!

When you turn printer on alarm light flashes and says printer error 6000 and wont print

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Error 6000 actually a line feed error, with the problem originating from the timing disk film or the printer's logic board.
To solve this problem:

Check the timing disk film or Check the feed roller if is there any foreign body, remove it softly
Timing disk film is located at the left side of the printer, look at the picture given below to identify it.
If you didn't get it and have confusion to solve it yourself then go to Canon authorized service facility for repair. You can also get support by Canon by phone, at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666)

I hope this solution will helpful for you.
Anymore help, I am here to help.

Printer error 6000, on a canon Mp610 printer. i tried what the manual said [disconnect USB cable... etc] shut down, restart. printer still says error!!!!

6000 says the paper feed is not able to roll. Either something has fallen in to stop the rollers, or the encoder on the left hand side is too dirty to see the marks on the wheel.

No paper feed if less than 20 sheets in hopper

I had the same problem & it was suggested to adjust the rollers. I took the cover off & played with them & they fell down from a "stuck" positiion. I then left the cover off, taped down the device that moves the cartridges to the center (black movable tab) and hand fed a sheet to see if it was printing OK. It worked so I put it back together. I noticed that the feeding chute extension (goes up) which I had never used before & put it fully up. After printing with a stack of papers and then just a few it now works well with a glossy 8x10 perfectly. I think the change in angle of the paper you get when the paper doesn't bend due to the extension it the key.

Canon BJC-70, will not load paper, either by pressing (FF)

Clean the rollers; remove the top, wet a Q-tip with alcohol press down on the paper tray and you can roll the rollers by hand, clean them real good and the two little pads below them, the rollers get covered with paper dust and loose traction, really ! put it back together your done.

Printer always prin at the to of the page and then it will parer jam but no paper is in it to jam up I have a canon bjc-4200 and I like the print that it dose

hi there,
This problem mostly caused by another material (such as broken paper, etc) present in paper path prevent paper to reach paper cam sensor. Check inside your printer and clear paper path from another material. You can also try to clean paper feed roller. If problem still persist, replace paper feed roller

Paper feed problem

Try cleaning the rollers with a damp paper towel. Dilute alcohol with water (half and half). Be sure to clean all the way around. Taking it apart is quite a process. Be sure you can get the replacement parts before you start.
