Just replace with new PRINT HEAD. There is no alternate way to solve this problem.

I haven't used my S450 in quite awhile. I tried to print and there is no ink getting thru. will this problem be taken care of if I trash the old ink tanks and renew?


You might need to clean the whole print head as well. Open the printer, remove the cartridges and press the lever to release the whole printhead. Place the printhead (while it is standing upright) in a small dish with a few mm of lukewarm water. The dried-out ink will dissolve (you can see this because the water will take color). Repeat if necessary; it may take a whole night before all the dried ink is dissolved. You might then even have the luck that your old cartridges will work again.

I have a Brother MFC 790cw that does not print black all the other colors work, I have updated the driver bought a new ink cartrige and used the the clean option for the black ink. I know it is recieving...


Try printing a rest page and if that doesn't print in black ink the printhead is probably blocked.

With some printers the printhead is part of the ink cartridge and such problems tend to disappear when the cartridge is replaced, unless the cartridge is faulty. Other printers use cartridges that are ink and nothing more and those are prone to the printheads drying out and becoming blocked unless they are never allowed to become completely empty of ink and are kept in frequent use.

Cleaning/replacing such a printhead usually needs special tools and experience and in the case of many cheap domestic printers the cost of service far outweighs the cost of replacement.

Canon bcj-80 prints blank pages


The problem comes mostly from the printhead. It helps to put a drop of water on the cleaning pad over to the right where the printhead parks, before doing a clean cycle.

No yellow printing from my color cartridges


The nozzles that the yellow ink flows thru are clogged. Try the print head cleaning utility. Right click on the printer, select PROPERTIES, select the MAINTENANCE TAB and press the PRINTHEAD CLEANING button. If that doesnt work, turn off printer, open front cover and move the ink carriage toward the center. You should see a small rectangular cotton sponge pad thats covered with old inks. Put several drops of Windex on it so that its nicely soaked and return ink carriage. Turn on printer and run the print head cleaning utility again. Then let it sit overnight. The next day, try printing a test page.

My bjc-80 wont print after sitting for several months. the only change was a usb connector to my new dell fresh cartridges.


  1. Make sure printer is turned on.

  2. Press and hold the RESUME button for at least two seconds until the printer beeps twice.

  3. The POWER light will blink for several seconds while the print head is being cleaned.
If three print head cleanings do not correct the issue, you may need to replace the BC ink cartridge.

Cartridge recommendations


You can purchase Canon cartridges directly from Canon here. The BC-10 is a cartridge that prints with black ink only. The BCI-10 is the replacement ink tank for this cartridge (a new cartridge comes complete with an ink tank). The BC-11e is a cartridge that prints both black and color, and has two ink tanks, the BCI-11 black and BCI-11 color. A new BC-11e cartridge comes complete with two new ink tanks.

BJC-80 - Wont' print


Look on eBay for printhead or cartridge cleaning solution. The cartridge is clogged with dried ink. Take an empty ink tank, and drip cleaning solution onto the sponge, filling the cartridge part way. Install the cleaning cartridge in the printer, and leave it over night. Run cleaning cycle the next day, and print with the same cartridge. It should start printing. Install new ink cartridge.
With the BJCs, if the cartridge is defective electrically, the printer will have an error and usually 3 beeps, it will not try to print.

Try cleaning off the contacts on the ink carriage with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. The part that connects to the copper contacts on the printhead. You can't harm them by cleaning this way. And the alcohol evaporates pretty quick. Canon ink is 65% alcohol and this dissolves and cleans off ink residue on any part of the printer. Sometimes these contacts get dirty over time and won't read print heads installed any more. This fixes about half the printers like this I have problems with.

If cleaning doesn't help, and a new print head won't work, then the only fix is to replace the ink tank carriage assembly.

The BJC 3000 will flash two different colored lights in a pattern to signal several different errors. From the documentation I have the two colors are orange and green, could those be the colors you see? At any rate here is the code: Two orange flashes: Out of paper, paper jam, or paper feed error. If no paper is loaded in the auto sheet feeder, or if the paper is not loaded correctly, set the paper correctly and press the Resume button on the printer to continue printing. Three orange flashes: Paper jam. If paper has jammed in the printer, carefully remove the jam and press the Resume button to continue printing. Four orange flashes: A tank inside the BJ cartridge (print head) is out of ink. Replace the empty BJ tank and press the Resume button to continue printing. Five orange flashes: BJ cartridge is not installed properly. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Six orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is not installed. Remove and reseat the cartridge correctly. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed. Make sure the blue locking lever is locked down securely. Seven orange flashes: BJ cartridge (printhead) is defective. Remove the BJ cartridge and check that the contacts on the cartridge and cartridge holder are clean. Make sure the orange protective cap and tape have been removed and reinstall the cartridge. If the error occurs again after you resume operation, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge. Eight orange flashes: Waste ink absorber almost full. The printer has a built-in waste ink absorber to hold the ink that is consumed during print head cleaning. This error indicates that the waste ink absorber is nearly full. Press the Resume button to skip the error so you can continue printing. The POWER light flashes orange and green alternately: Service error. A service error means the printer requires the attention of a qualified technician. If you have any more questions let us know otherwise please don't forget to rate this post.

Canon bjc-80 - no print appears but cartridge & paper move normally


I had this problem too. It turned out there was old dry ink in there clogging up the printerhead and it was fixed after I ran the cleaning programme several times. However I can't for the lifeof me remember how to do that now. I know I found it online but it has since vanished. Maybe check your manual?
