Question about Canon BJC 80 InkJet Printer
Hello :-) When I first got my Canon BJC-80... I send something to the printer, it does nothing for a minute or so, status changes from 'Printing' to 'Printing - Cartridge Mismatch', then another pause, then it begins printing anyway and comes out fine. The cartridges are Canon Ink BC-10 black or BC-11e for black and color... the correct cartridges. Before I got it from my mother it worked totally fine. It's worked this way for about a year until now. Now, it does the same thing but changes to 'Error - Printing - Cartridge Mismatch'. Then takes lots of pauses in between acting/sounding like it is printing, but nothing at all is printed on the page when it is done. I am bewildered! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I would not go out and buy new cartridges without trying the following. Go into the procedure of removing and re-installing the cartridges. While the cartridges are out, inspect for probable damage to the cartrigdes. Sometimes there can accumulate waste inks and interfere with the contacts. With a damp Q-tip, clean the contacts and wipe it dry. Concerned about the lint on the Q-tip? Use coffee filter. A readily available lint-free wipe. Re-install the cartridges and test. BTW, are you using genuine Canon inks? 3rd party inks can exhibit that error. Best Regards.
