Error badint 0085ddc0

The 'badint' error on the T6100 indicates the printers firmware has for some reason 'crashed', this error should not be seen in normal operation of the printer.
One common cause of "BADINT" messages is the use of an external print server or host computer with incompatible parallel-port settings. If you have an external print server connected to the printer's parallel port there is a setting on the print parallel interface that may need changing, to change parallel interface setting. • Set the printer to Offline. • Press the Enter and LF keys together for approx 3 - 4 seconds. The alarm will sound. (Tech Access On) • Press the Mode key: display will show Offline Normal. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Offline Config. • Press the Forms/1 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Config Paralel. • Press the CPI/2 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Paralel Bi-Dir. • Press the LPI/3 key. • Press any Arrow key until display shows Bi-Dir Off. • Press the Enter key and the interface will be set. • Press the Clear key. • Press the Enter and LF keys together for approx 3 - 4 seconds. The alarm will sound. (Tech Access Off) On the external Print Server, you need to ensure that the unit is also set for Uni-directional working.

My hp deskjet ink adv2060 K110 not print the spooler service not running?

Hello there Marejen,

See if there is any spooler.exe running in your task manager. Press ctrl, alt + delete to go there. If you see the process, click to highlight then end it. Then restart your computer and the printer itself. Then try to initiate a print again once everything is loaded.

Please let me know if this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

Waste Ink near full shows on screen. Won't print!

Hi ...

Cannon Pixma MP780 have an absorber and this error is related to this absorber.

This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible. Press the <Stop/Reset> button to cancel the error. You will still be able to print for a short period. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset.

I would suggest that you take your printer to the nearest cannon service centre and get it repaired.

Don't forget to vote if this helps ... Cheers :)

Pixma MP150 won't print

i cant help you with your problem completely but every time i change the ink the printer states to install the correct cartridges and or that my ink level is low and will not print

all previous occasions with the cannon mp150/160 if there's such a word as stubborn can apply to computer printers i have had to keep rebooting the programming that is switching off and on at length the power supply until the printer finally works or offers the alternative message to press the start button

i have 2 cannon printers mp150 and mp160 because it is just about the same price to buy a new printer than 2 new cartridges

keep rebooting it may take up to 15-30 minutes!
