Hi, According to my BJ-30 & BJC-70 user manual, if F12 is blinking, it is required for this Error code to get in touch with a Canon Service Centre. I had this in the past and being curious I removed the printer chassis from case the and found the problem to be a loose ribbon cable in the connector on the main board from the touch pad circut board . I also had the identical problem with my BJC-70. These printers are very reliable and compact, it seems to be a problem which I think comes about from these printers being so portable. It took me about 15 minutes to fix the problem for which I have made a small modification to hold the cable in place. Having said this, it may not necessarly be your problem but it is a starting point. Canon to my mind have not made another portable printer this good, so if you value it and can find a trustworthy technician get it fixed. If you want further info contact me here.
Regards Roger D

I am using a canon bj 200ex bubble jet printer but recently it strated to leave out strips so that i cannot read the text properly, how can i adjust it?


The BJ200 is quite an old printer. The problem you're describing is indicative of a head failure. If replacing the cartridge doesn't work, you may have a faulty head. If the cartridge includes the print-head (some do) it could be the contact strip on the cartridge cradle.

My honest advice would be to retire this printer, and buy a new one. Even the most basic model you can buy now would exceed the bj200ex in both quality and speed - and would be inexpensive to buy.

My canon BJ 10 EX bubble jet printer wont recognise that a sheet of paper has been loaded, the out of paper light remains on. Does it have a mechanical or electronic sensor to detect paper insertion?


Yes you are right there is an electronic detection of the paper detection at the insert point. This is an optocoupler which can be checked for the failure of the detection. replace and proceed. Good day

Is the Canon BJ-30 a color printer?


Nope. Canon BJ-30 is not a color printer.
It is same as BJC-70 but only the color printing ability is not available in it.
BJ-30 is Black & White inkjet printer with max 360x360 dpi.
Hope this helps.

    I was just given a used computer with windows XP but my printer will not work with it. I have a canon bj200e. Is there any way I can get it to work? I can't afford a new printer right now.


    ok
    1. Remove all old printer drivers which have no use now.
    2. Install your printer driver/software
    3. And use it, there might not be occur any problem.
    If any problem, just Ask me..

    Thanks

    Error message


    The manual for the BJ-30 can be found here: http://downloadlibrary.usa.canon.com/cpr/pdf/Manuals/BJ30_user_manual.pdf On page 97 (105 of 183) it indicates your error message. Unfortunately, it does not give a way to resolve the issue other than bringing the device in for repair. I then came across this page which is a bit more descriptive with the error codes. http://www.uktsupport.co.uk/canon/bj/bj30.htm F12 is aPrintHead Temperature Error. It suggests trying to install a NEW print head. if the problem continues, the printer will require service.
