Question about Canon BJC S400 / CanoScan N650U InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No printing for Canon S400


The printer "sounds" like it is functioning properly, but nothing comes out on the page. It doesn't matter if it's a black/white or color document. There is plenty of ink, and I changed the cartridge (Color BJ Cartridge BC-33e). Still, nothing appears on the page. Reinstalled drivers too. Please help.

Good evening,I have a canon Multifonction MP 510 printer which doesn't work properly on windows 7 64bits.Symptoms are the following.Printer is installed properly (no problem found by windows).Scan...

no idea, really it can not work, bacause your printer driver is not for win 7 64 bit, and maybe you cann not find it, bacause there is no,, you need second operating system with 32 bit. you can install it without formating, as a second operating system. It will be 2 operating system on your pc. And win7 with 64bit will make more problems for you, it is right, it working quick, but have strong problems with drivers.

Soon after initiating printing, Canon s400 printer stops with a loud clunk. This produces Error 5100. Turning off and on again does not help.

Hi You can Try

Error Code 5100 This happens lots in caon
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

Canon s400 printer w/new cartridge

Dear aunder,
Did you mean print blank in black nozzle?. Please compare with another cartridge if you have. Is the problem still persist?. If it so, the problem can be caused by purge unit of the printer not function properly (purge unit cannot **** the ink from the cartridge). Hope this will be useful for you.

Black ink not printing

Clean heads, clean heads, clean heads, etc. Then do the test print to see if the heads are open. I had similar problem with an Epson, had to clean the heads often, finally got to where the heads wouldn't clean so threw it away and bought another one (HP this time, the heads are included in the ink carts, haven't had to clean the heads at all.)

CANON BJC-85 Won't print black...

Turn on printer, press cartridge button, remove cartridge. On left side of remaining cradle, unsnap the cradle, lift up and remove. Take the cradle to your sink, wet a paper towel, and GENTLY wipe the long print head with the wet paper towel. Then run a small stream of clear cool water through the cradle, from the round pad that your cartridge rests on, until the pad looks ink-free. Dry everything with tissues and a hair dryer set on low, replace cradle in printer, replace cartridge, turn on printer, press Resume until it beeps three times, which runs the deep cleaning program, and after the procedure is finished, your printer will print as new.
