Does your printer have colour ink in it? Check that the print settings do not include something like "print in greyscale" or "black and white".

How to extend the life of your cannon printers and recycle ink as well


The main problem of canon printers nowadays is that it has lifespan when the waste counters of the printers become full you can no t print anymore.

To fix this problem all you need is intravenous fluid hose,phillips screw driver, drill,empty container and a lot of guts

first things first is open your canon printer using the screw driver after opening you'll find a hose where the printer cartridge sits this hose has a black stripe on it and goes directly to a catching pad which is commonly know as waste pads. pull out the hose from the waste pad and connect the intravenous fluid hose after you've done it secure it with a glue stick, glue gun or anything. Now drill a hole on the back side of the printer cover the hole must be of the same size of the intravenous fluid hose. assuminbg that you have already done this.insert the hose to the hole you've made and cover back your printer. now find a container for your waste ink. then you are done

to recycle the ink that you've collected on your catching basin just filter the ink out with a cloth and refill the waste ink as black. i've been doing these for a long time already and saved alot of ink for my black cartridge. hope this helps

Changing ink default to BLACK


Not possible.
Epson uses the black cartridge mostly, but also adds color to the black printing in order to keep the color inks from drying in the print jets on the printhead.
They also make lots of money that way...

Printer


you can check if you have a problem with your cartridge by testing it with a same or similar printer. I have a issue just like that yesterday. I thought it was a printer flex then i found out it was the ink cartridge itself. (you may let your printer checked as a second option).

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

Error light and 6 beeps upon startup, therefore the printer won't print anything.


Is the BC-21e new, or refilled?
I know Cannon brand new cost so much more, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet.
I had a Cannon Multipass C2500.
Sometimes even a new cartridge isn't good enough. I used to exchange between that one and the all black cartridge, because the all black has twice the resolution. Even with very careful handling, not touching anything metal, they still went bad.
My best suggestion, short of another expensive cartridge is to remove the cartridge, take a soft pink pencil eraser and lightly erase all the contacts on the printer and the cartridge. Look for any of the spring loaded contacts in the printer that are stuck. Do not touch the contacts on the cartridge as they are unbelievably static sensitive. If you see ink on the contacts, use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip to remove it.
Most likely though, it will take yet another cartridge with head to fix it. (That's why I gave up on mine and got a different brand.)

My cannon BJC-2100 series gives me error 5C00 when trying to print


The error you are getting refers to the cartridge movement. You need to open the printer so you can see the cartrige and the track it rides on. Make sure that the cartriges can move freely with no obstructions. If the cartridges can move freely and there is nothing blocking the path this will require a pro. If nothing is stopping the movement than another component went out that controls the movement of the heads.

When I looked up the error online it says this is a cleanig error and just to Make sure no obstructions are blocking the cartridge movement, if not needs service.
