Question about Apple Canon BJC 55 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

On firing up my BJC-55 it shows an error message (orange steady light) and beeps once. This message is supposed to relate to paper non supply but I have put paper in the slot. Also the cartridge does not come to the centre when I press and hold the cartridge button. Machine has not been used for maybe two years, but is still in immaculate condition appearance wise, when it last operated correctly on OS9, now trying OS X with GimpPrint, file transfers in print manager but no action.

    Did not work, initialization sequence did not occur. Guess the long period of non-use has done the printer in, pity as it was expensive and a portable replacement is not available.

I reviewed your problem and have the fallowing solutions for you to try.
Also, after going thru this reset to factory, if your print head, does not return to the centre position, you may need to replace the unit.
I hope this works for you, I hate to let equipment go, also.!!

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.

    Not printing from one computer


    If the CHARGE/ERROR light is remain on orange with beep 1 times, it mean the paper is not properly set in the feed slot, just remove the paper and reload it properly.
    If the POWER light is flashing green, that mean your print job is not finish yet.

    BJC55 Printer not printing


    There are some possibilities due to the above phenomena. Let's discuss about it:
    1) If the POWER light is flashing green, then your printer is now warming up or performing maintenance procedure (replacing cartridge/tank) or cleaning print head, just wait a few seconds till the light stop flash. Also if the last page of a print job not done, this POWER light flashing green.
    2) If the CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, it mean your cartridge need to be install (especially the 1st time turn on printer) or cartridge being replaced, just install the cartridge and press RESUME to continue.
    3) If both POWER light is flashing green and CHARGE/ERROR light is flashing orange with beep 3 times, then your printer may facing a very serious error and maybe need a replacement.

    Hope these help.

    PROBLEM COPYING WITH MY ALL- IN- ONE


    This message is inbuilt into most Canon printers, there is spongy thing in the printer which when fills up fires the message (it's mostly a counter in the printer, which can be reset more later...), per Canon this can only be dealt with in a lab but some of the more adventurous have tried cleaning it by themselves. Note that in a lab they won't clean it, it's a part that needs replacing and it might cost around $60. In most Canon printers there is a reset procedure that can reset the error and allow you to print some more before handling it again. Following are the reset procedures for some of the Printers: (not that F60 isn't listed here) Canon GENERIC "S" SERIES RESET CODE Waste Ink Counter Reset. (1) Turn off the printer. (2) Press and hold the RESUME button, then press and hold the POWER button. (3) Release the RESUME button, Next press and release the RESUME button two(2) more times in succession. Note: you are still holding the POWER button). The printer's carriage will "reset" or move momentarily. If the above was properly performed the printer will enter the "Service Mode". (4) Press the RESUME button 4 times, this will select the clear waste ink counter function. The lamp will alternate (change) color with each key press. 1. Service/Factory test printout, including ink sensor check. 2. EEPROM - Info printout. 3. EEPROM - Initialization. 4. Reset the Waste ink counter. 5. Printer model setting. (More selections beyond this point - However it is best leave them unaltered - You have been warned!)

    Canon BJC 6000 Beeps and Power Light Flashes Orange


    The 6 beeps along with the orange light stands for "Re-install BJ cartridge or replace it". You might have already fixed the problem by replacing the cartridge, and you're still stuck with the error indication. Waste Error Reset 1: Power off printer 2: Hold Resume button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once. 3: Hold POWER and release RESUME 4: Press RESUME twice 5: When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange. 6: Press Power to set data If it still doesn't go away, try cleaning the contacts the cartridge makes with the printhead. Dip the carts contacts(dipping only the contact area) in shallow hot water for a minute, then wipe dry with a cloth that doesn't shed fiber. Also clean the contacts on the printhead using a damp cloth, maybe also some alcohol. If it still doesn't go away you have to think of replacing the printhead, or chucking it. Good luck
