Whenever i turn my Canon BJC85 portable printer on, the green power light and yellow error light flash and 8 beeps are heard. The printer will not function in this state & the ink cartridge carriage is...

Hello, you can read the error codes here:

it seems to be a temperature error and cannon suggest that you replace the print head.

Removing the Cartridge ( Print Head )

1. Make sure that the printer is turned on, then open the cartridge cover.
2. Press the CARTRIDGE button to move the cartridge to the center.
3. Remove the BJ cartridge.

Let the machine be without the cartridge, close it, turn it off and back on, is the error still there? then redo the above and attach the cartridge to the machine, if the error is still there, try another cartridge if possible if the problem still remains, turn the machine off for atleast 15 minutes / unplug, then try again.

Red light flash, E on dispkay

Well, I would take out the cartridge first.

And then wipe out the circuit part by rubbing alcohol (by QTip).
And try back.

Sometimes, by little bit of dust, cartridge cannot be recognizable in the priner.

If above method is not working, your cartridge must be shorted.
And need to replace with new cartridge.

    The red light is blinking and it doesn't print.

    There are actually some certain meaning on the red light and green light showing different information to user. The summaries are:
    1) Green On, Red Off = Printer Ready.
    2) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Fast-Flashing = Printer warm up.
    3) Green Fast-Flashing, Red Off = Printer off-line.
    4) Green Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Processing Data.
    5) Green Off, Red On = Cover Opened, Toner Empty or Developer Unit / Drum unit missing.
    6) Green Off, Red Fast-Flashing = Paper Jam or waiting for jam reset.
    7) Green Off, Red Slow-Flashing = Paper Empty or Paper tray is not inserted.
    8) Green Off, Red Off = Printer power is off.
    9) Green Very-Slow-Flashing, Red Off = Printer in sleep mode.
    10) Green (any condition above), Red Slow-Flashing = Toner low or paper empty.

    So what is your printer condition? Better know what is going on your printer so can solve the problem.

    empty or missing.
     The printer cannot
    detect the print

    1. Reinsert or replace the print cartridge.

    Attention light is not on, turn the printer off and
    then back on.
    3. If the problem persists, repeat the above steps
    with yellow print cartridges until the error is

    Not printing green light flashing red one constant

    Here is the indicator light error page from the Service Manual
    You will see there is no specific error of "Power flashing" with "Error On". The inference is that the Power light was doing someting to cause it to flash (e.g. jn cartridge change mode) when something went wrong to cause the "power no change" with "red light on" error. The most likely I think is "no cartridge" - or more likely "faulty cartridge looking like no cartridge". Have you tried re-replacing the cartridge with yet another. Other possibilities are some sort of mechanical jam. Please report back on this.

    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.
