Question about Canon BJC 80 InkJet Printer
I have a Canon BJC-80 printer. I currently use it with a hand held IPAQ which works perfectly. Recently I filled the cartridge with ink after it completly ran out and it would print BLANK pages. I keep running it over and over again to see if the ink just needed to fill the printer head(the green thing the cartridge clicks into). I then took an identical printer from my friend and took out his cartridge and put it in my printer with the same effect, blank pages. Then I took his printer head with the cartridge together and tried on my printer and it worked perfectly. What is going on??????? I have cleaned the head with alchol wipes, which I thought might have caused it but I have done that before. Please help!!!!
Power off the printer.
Unplug it, then plug it back in.
Wait until it stops its initialization sequence.
Press and hold the power button.
Allow the printer to beep 7 times, then release the power button.
This will reset the EEProm to factory default, and should clear your problem.

i think u already solved your problem...your printer's problem is its printer head...u cannot solve this problem by fixing it yourself.all u can do is to buy new printer head at printer's shop. it is true because i got the same problem with my BJC 200.i do the same solution as u r and lastly, i go to the technician and he said i need to replace my printer head at some price.....just think bout money n i discover that buy a new one is better(as for my problem)
not to discourage u, but try to plan either to buy new printer head or buy a new printer....
hope this solution help... ; )

I have had a similar problem to this: I have had a BJC 80 for nearly 5 years and carried it around with my laptop using Win 98 and a par - par cable. It worked beautifully and successfully - so much so that when i saw a number of ink tanks going at very cheap volume prices in PC World i picked up a lot of them. Changing to an XP meant that i had to keep on using the par to par cable via a docking station but prevented my use of it with my new laptop - so when i brought it out of retirement it gave the blank printing problems yoiu described. By checking some error messages that it expected a black cartridge (which is what was installed) i found that inthe setup the software indicated it defaulted to colour cartridges. By changing this on the computer, it still printed blank pages but by changing the cartridge to colour it sprang into life when the set up asked for colour. I tried 2 other print heads which i had (3-4 years old) but still blank paper when printing to a black cartridge. I am now awaiting a new black print head carrier to see if it makes a difference. When trying with my laptop using XP and a par - usb cable it does not work at all. I have removed the sware driver for the Canon 80 and manually installed the one for the Canon 85 but no luck in printing to par - usb at this time
