Question about Canon BJC 6000 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have tried to print using my black ink cartridge and it will only print what is my email address.

I went to Office Max and bot a new black ink cartridge and it still does not print. I had someone else come by and they were able to print using the magenta ink color. Do you have any idea what I can do to get my problem solved? Thanks.

Issue: Tinted printing / Colors are not exact
Solution: Resolving ink tank and cartridge issues BJC-6000

Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper Printer attempts to print but no ink is on the paper If the print quality is poor or no ink is appearing on the page, it may be because of the following problems:

  • The ink in the BJ tanks has run out.
  • The print head nozzles may be clogged
  • The protective cap or tape may have been reattached to the BJ cartridge
  • The BJ cartridge may need to be replaced
  • You may be using the wrong side of the media.
To check the level of ink in the BJ tanks
Open the printer's front cover and visually check the level of the ink in all the BJ tanks. If a BJ tank is low or has run out of ink, replace it. Failure to do so may shorten the life of your BJ Cartridge
To check the status of the print head by printing a Nozzle Check Pattern
  1. The Nozzle Check Pattern confirms whether the inks are being correctly ejected from the print head nozzles and whether the print head is correctly aligned.

  2. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until you hear 2 beeps.

  3. When you release the button, the Nozzle Check Pattern will be printed. You can also print the Nozzle Check Pattern by clicking on the Test Print button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

  4. After the Nozzle Check Pattern is printed, check the results. Look at the Nozzle Check Pattern for each BJ Ink tank. If any colors are missing or if any horizontal lines are broken or missing, perform the print head cleaning procedure.
To perform the print head cleaning procedure
  1. On your printer, press and hold the Resume button until you hear 1 beep.

  2. When you release the button, all print heads for all colors will be cleaned.

  3. You can also clean the print heads by clicking the left Print Head Cleaning button in the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.

  4. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. This will continue for about 30 seconds. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.

  5. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.

  6. If the results are satisfactory, resume normal printing. If the results are not satisfactory, you may need to execute a print head deep cleaning.
To execute a print head deep cleaning
  1. Make sure paper is loaded in the sheet feeder and the printer is turned on.

  2. Display the printer properties dialog box and click the Maintenance tab.

  3. Click the right print head Cleaning button.

  4. When the print head cleaning begins, the POWER light starts flashing. Wait for the light to stop flashing before you resume normal operation.

  5. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.

  6. If the Nozzle Check Pattern is still unsatisfactory, you may need to execute a print head alignment.
To execute a print head alignment
In Windows, display the Maintenance tab of the printer properties dialog box.
  1. Click the right Test Print button.

  2. Follow the instructions on the screens to perform an automatic print head alignment.

  3. A confirmation screen will ask you if you want to perform automatic print head alignment. Read the screen and click OK. Another screen warns you not to start any other operation until the alignment is complete. Again, click OK.

  4. The BJ Printer Status Monitor displays the Printer Status. The driver will align the print heads then will print an alignment pattern.

  5. Perform the Nozzle Check Pattern test again.

  6. If the Nozzle Check Pattern is still unsatisfactory, you may need to replace the BJ cartridge.
To replace a BJ Tank in a BJ Cartridge
Leave the BJ cartridge in the printer when replacing a BJ tank. Make sure the printer's power is on. Make sure you insert the BJ tank in the correct slot.
  1. Open the front cover.

  2. The power light blinks while the cartridge holder is positioned to the center of the printer.

  3. Remove the empty BJ tank by pressing in on the release tab and then lifting the BJ tank up and out of its slot.

  4. Dispose of the tank properly, taking care to avoid spilling ink on your hands, floor, furniture, or clothing.

  5. Remove the new BJ tank from its package and pull the orange tape up and against the perforations to open the package film. Be careful not to remove the label from the tank. You will need it to match the tank to the correct slot in the BJ cartridge.

  6. Twist the orange protective cap to remove it. Do not attempt to reattach the protective cap; instead, discard it along with the protective tape.

  7. Insert the BJ tank by holding it at a slight angle, aligning it with the correct slot. Press down gently on the top of the tank until it locks into place.

  8. Lock the ink tank in place by pressing down on the circle mark on the top of the tank.
    Close the printer cover.

  9. The printer will automatically start cleaning the print heads. When the print heads are clean, the POWER light will stay on, indicating that the printer is ready for operation.

  10. Perform another test print to make sure the new ink tanks are performing correctly.
To remove the protective cap and tape from the BJ cartridge
  1. Open the printer's front cover.

  2. Unlock the BJ cartridge by raising the cartridge lock lever. Make sure you raise it all the way up.

  3. Remove the BJ cartridge by holding it by the circles on the left and right sides.

  4. Make sure that the orange protective cap has been removed.

  5. Make sure that the protective tape has also been removed.

  6. Replace the BJ cartridge and move the blue cartridge lock lever until it locks in place.
To check the media
Make sure that you are printing to the correct side of the media that you are using, and that the Media Type setting in the printer driver properties correctly reflects the type of paper you are using.
Be sure to read any instructions that come with your Canon specialty paper. These instructions provide important information regarding how to achieve the highest print quality with these papers.

Lexmark X5150 black ink cartridges won't print


The original Lexmark-branded 81 and 82 cartridges shouldn't cause a problem - regardless of the country of origin. I can't speak to any reman or refills, because quality varies widely. Have you contacted Lexmark's technical support - accessible via www.lexmark.com? There should be a solution for the Lexmark-branded cartridges. If that doesn't work, put one of the "bad" Lexmark cartridges in their recycling bag and include a note about your problem, including your email address.

Colors are not printing out true.


I replaced the Office Max ink substitute with an original Canon ink. This did not help. I decided this problem most probably had to be a printer head issue, so I gave up and bought a new printer instead.

Printer error


I've encountered this same problem, it could be that the ink cartridges that you have installed in the printer are either running low or out of ink.


I had the problem also and found that after I swapped out my cartridges with new ones that I purchased the blinking yellow light on the Alarm and the black and color cartridge.


If you do not want to purchase new ink cartridges to correct the problem you can can open the lid to your multifunction and remove the ink cartridges and place them in separate plastic sandwich bags and take them to any office supply store; Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and tell an employee there that you have run out of the ink and that you would want to have the cartridges refilled.

I actually went to an Office Max in Houston with my cartridges and they told me it would be cheaper to have them refilled than to purchase a new set of cartridges; that after I looked online and compared what they charged for new cartridges actually saved me $40 to have the one's I already had refilled.

Printing in color


Since you already tried cleaning tha colored cartridges the next thing that you can possible do is to remove all the cartridges then turn off the printer for 5 minutes then put the cartridges back in and hopefully now the printer will be able to recognize that cartridges are still not epty, but if still the same thing try to use another colored cartridges if possible so we can check if that will also give the saem results...

Hope that helps.......

I have a Canon printer/scanner MP210. I ran out of black ink, though at the time, the color ink was working perfectly. I replaced the black ink cartridge and the printer now prints in black perfectly. ...


First try a hard reset - Unplug printer from power supply, wait 2 minutes and replug and see. If that doesnt work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver and software. Also ensure that the cartridge is properly seated in the holder.
