8 beeps is an abnormal temperature rise error. The BJC 85 prints by warming the ink passing through the print head. The printer monitors how warm the print head is getting. 8 beeps means the print head is defective and getting to warm. There is no work around for this error except to replace the print head. The print head is the problem, not the printer.

From Canon sounds like print head problem
BC10e for Black only or BC11e for combo.
1. Replace or reinstall the BJ Cartridge ( Print Head ) - BJC-85 2. The BJC-85 may require repair 3. Turn the printer off for at least 15 minutes

Re:bjc80 prints one page, then beeps 8 times and error light flashes


8 times is abnormal temperature of the printhead. You need to replace the printhead.

Beeps 3 times and power light flashes


I have not solved the problem. I just changed to a different printer. I had a bj50 printer and it use to do this and would change the printhead but they are expense and I have 3 different ones so believe it is something else that is wrong with this one.

This is for when it beeps 8 times, but you might try this...

You should clean or replace the absorber pad at some point but most of the time you can get away with resetting the ink counter a few times before you need to clean or replace the pad.


1: Unplug Power Cord
2: Hold POWER and RESUME buttons
3: Plug in Power Cord
4: Release buttons after the printers starts up
5: Hold CARTRIDGE and RESUME
6: Press POWER
7: Release all buttons after the beeps
8: Press CARTRIDGE 16 times
9: Press RESUME
10: Unplug the Power cord
