The black only cartrdige holder will not work in either of my two Canon BJC 85 printers, both work with a black/colour cartridge but neither with so I can only assume it is the problem of the holder


Are you aware that there 2 ways of changing the cartridge? You can either press the cartridge button on the printer or via the pc. Go into the driver and on the main tab you can select what cartridge you are using. Try using the opposite method to what you are doing. Its possible that the print head has dried and therefore blocked. Use a damp cotton bud and wipe the head.
Good luck

When I power up the BJC-85, the printer cycles through the start up process and then beeps three times and places the carriage in the replace cartridge position. I have changed cartridges and ink tanks...


The 3 beep error is a prompt that no print head is installed. The error is occurring because the printer no longer recognizes that a print head is installed. Normally , this is due to a defective print head. If you have replaced the print head with ONE YOU ARE CERTAIN IS GOOD, then the problem is in the printer. Try taking a cue tip soaked in isoprophyl ( rubbing) alcohol and cleaning the contact strip where the print head installs. The part in the printer. The area will feel flexible but you can clean it safely. Let the alcohol dry and try the print head again. If you still have the error, the only solution is a full service that involves replacing a major part of the print mechanism.

Black ink cartridge holder not working , can not print with black ink cartridge holder, when i use the colored ink holder printer works ok


The problem you are describing is with the black ( BC-10 ) print head and not with the printer.

1. Check your black ink tank and be sure it is not dry.

2. Run the printer through one DEEP cleaning cycle and see if that improves the print.

If your black ink tank is full, and the deep cleaning cycle produces no improvement, you will need to replace the BC-10 print head.

BJC 85 not printing after head replacement


I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.

BJC-85 Not printing. New BC-10 and BCI-10. Paper loads normally


The problem you are having is with the print head and not the printer. Unfortunately, with these canon print heads, they are not dated, so it is possible to install a print head that was bought new and sealed, but is still dried out because it is old.

Try running the print head through one deep cleaning cycle, this sometimes will start to get an old print head flowing.

Deep cleaning cycle can be found by going to PRINTERS , right clicking on the BJC icon, selecting PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, and then selecting the MAINTAINENCE tab.

Check to make sure that the ink tank in the print head isn't dry. Even a new print head can have a dry tank if it's old.

Head replacement


Look on EBAY just type in Canon BJC Printers look for cartridges etc (same head/cartridge for 70/80/85)

Colour is BC11 or BC11e Black is BC10

Supplemental Q are you sure the head needs replacing take it out ; take out cartriges put it in a shallow dish then pour in Very hot water only a small amount lece for a couple of minutes then remove and allow to dry; may sound drastic but 2 things apply if it is naff anyway no problem you are getting a new one but it also may just be blocked

The BJC-55 takes 2 different types of print heads. And also a scanner head, that snaps into the same place and turns the printer into a scanner.

One print head is a Canon BC-11E. It has 2 ink tanks in it. 1 black and 1 tri-color. It prints in full color or black

The other print head is a BC-10. It prints only in black. But the ink yank holds 4 times the black ink of the BC-11E. It is very popular with business travelers who print only documents. The printer works about twice as fast with it. And replacing ink is a lot cheaper.

The scan head is called an IS-12.

Prices range from 40 to 60 dollars in supply stores ( Staples, etc)

Ebay is a good place to look for them
