Question about Canon BJC-85 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

BJC - 85 Power light blinks forever after cartridge replacement

On switching on the error light came on. I tried to replace the black cartridge - same thing. Then I tried a colour cartridge and the printer told me that I had a mismatch - I had requested colour print but had a black cartridge installed. The printer appeared to work ok but the pages were blank. Then I went back and re installed the black cartridge - now the power light blinks for a couple of minutes and then the orange error light comes on and the printer won't respond or print.

Will not print


Check on Canon.com, for the users manual, When you install cartridges you hold the resume button for the number of beeps to identify which cartridge is installed. You can install one black ink or one each black and color but you have to tell the printer which is installed.

    printer working ok-did 50 colour photos ,6x4 when i made a mistake and pushed the print button when there was still about 1 inch of the previous photo still being printed.This print emerged with overprint of about 1".Thereafter the printer has refused to operate properly the next print being heavily discoloured.It then told me to replace the light magenta cartridge-this I did and the discolouration changed hew.It then told me to change the magenta and light cyan carts.-I did and discolouration changed again.It then told me to change the yellow and cyan=siscolouration now bright
    red over coloured. I then successfully printed a letter in B&W proving that the black cartridge was still working.However as soon as I tried again to print a coloured photo it now tells me that the machine does not recognise the black cartridge and orders me to change it and until I do refuses to take any instructions telling me to install the black cartridge cprrectly.The black cartridge installed isout half full and has successfully printed copies and photos.I have carried out the suggested remedies by the machine and none were effectuve.How do it the infernal machine working again???

    Photosmart C5280. Instructions on photo cartridge 348 say remove both black and colour cartridges, then install photo cartridge in right hand cartridge holder. Printer screen then tells me to install...


    Your printer uses the following cartridges:

    HP 74 - Black ink
    HP 75 - Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow ink
    HP 99 - Photo Black, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta

    You need Photo Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Light Cyan, and Light Magenta to print photos. To accomplish this you install the HP 99 photo cartridge where your HP 74 black cartridge usually goes and you keep the HP 75 color cartridge where it's at. I don't know why your printer told you to remove both cartridges, then reinstall the HP 75 color cartridge.

    My printer will not accept a new black cartridge.


    ITS NOT THE BLACK CARTRIDGE!!! Try changing the colour cartridge and see what happens. When a 9600 checks ink levels it does the black ink first, then the colour, if the colour is low it goes back and checks the black again but will constantly give an error message for the black cartridge. Sounds bizarre but try just the black cartridge in with no colour. print a test page in black only, if that does not print then it is a fault. Also make sure the driver is updated!!!
