I have a cannon printer bjc 2100. It is printing


After replacing ink cartridges, you generally have to perform an alignment routine. On some printers, they have an automatic alignment function, others require the printing out of one or two sheets of paper and a possible adjustment via the service section of your printer software. If this isn't done, you can have an output similar to that you describe.

Printer wont print


Try the simple solution first. Uninstall the printer, reboot and reinstall. See if you can print a test page from the printer itself to make sure it still works period. If you can't print the self test page (which is the printer talking to itself) the computer won't be any better.

My canon bjc-80 will not print


BJC-80, USB to PARALLEL cable & XP problem solved! I read all the comments, instructions, etc. and was ready to give up, but posed the problem to my son (who has a computer repair business, duh), and I'm not sure I have this correct he simply Dis-abled the bi-directional communications in the set up, gave the cable and printer a designated USB port, got the driver for the BJC-80 ... not BJC-85 ... and it works fine. I do not have the scanner cartridge but I have 2 BJC-80s and love them but gave up when got the new computer. Well, I just ran off 2 pages after cleaning the cartridges and cartridge holder with alcohol on TP, because they had dried up hard, and it works great in both B&W & color, at least on draft mode so far. (My son will not post anything because he does not want a bunch of calls coming in, and I don't know any more, but I just could not bring myself to give up these great little printers for on the go Realtors, etc. without another good old college try). Glad to have my printers back! Good luck.

Printer won't work with new computer


I don't understand why my approach worked, but it did. Having tried all of the reasonable and obvious things, I downloaded an update of the Canon toolbox, which has to do with scanner operations rather than printing. Still, once I did this, I was able to use the MF4100 laser printer with my new computer.

I cant install my canon BJC-4100 printer


What OS are you trying to install it on, and how are you getting the files? The printer came out when Windows 95 was brand new, so using the original installation discs (floppies?) on any newer OS is not going to work. Canon has drivers available online for Windows NT, 95, 98 and Me here.

If you have a newer Windows 2000 or Windows XP use the drivers that are built in to the OS. From the Add Printer option, select Canon as the manufacturer, then look for Canon Bubble Jet BJC-4100.

If you have Windows Vista, this printer is not supported in that OS. Nor is this printer supported in any Mac OS.

Vista + cannon BJC 250 = error


Go to
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=329&modelid=6729

and try the XP driver. If this doesn't work, you may not be able to interface this printer to Vista.
Let me know if this works.

Go to this link. Select Windows XP in the Select OS box. Download the driver and follow instructions to install the driver. Do not connect or turn on the printer until the installation program tells you to do so.

Cannot print from Lap top using usb adapter to cannon printer.


It sounds that your problem might be on the USB to paralel adapter. Do you have another printer ti try it with ? Check the configuration for this adapter.
Good luck

Printer problem


here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away) http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0023758.asp?model= Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp; http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0018984_0000424.asp?model= but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver this link has dos drivers for the bcj80; http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
