    Canon doesn't offer any download for Vista.

  • JusEavesdrop Aug 18, 2008

    Vista recognizes it but it still doesn't print.

Well a suggestion that I can give though is to use an XP driver then select the option to run in Windows XP environment although its highly unlikely it will work but its worth a shot

I was searching over few Canon site and they do not have a Vista driver for the printer.

Canon only has drivers for 95, 98 and ME, opensourced thrid-party drivers have one for XP, bnut none have posted a driver for Vista, my apologies.

    no GPL for this one niether. you may check on canon if they have update, but it looks like they do not. they may in the future, but not this time i think.

Did you have the Vista Driver for this, if not, you can find it and download it from the Canon Website and it should work, if it still doesn't, let me know and please tell me if the computer recognizes it and any more details that you can give that may help figure out why it won't work

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate with a Canon BJC80, is there anyway to get the scanner facility to work, Canon drivers seem to end at Windows XP


If you can not find any driver that work with Windows 7, try to troubleshoot compatibility of the Canon scanner program, just right click on the program icon and you will find the option there.
Good luck!

When powering up canon bjc80 what should it do?


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer problem


here is the link for the driver download for the i250 for xp (hope you didn't mean you threw the printer itself away) http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0023758.asp?model= Here is the link for the bjc 80 scanning driver for xp; http://software.canon-europe.com/software/0018984_0000424.asp?model= but unfortunately canon does not seem to have a driver for printing in xp for the bjc80, it doesn't seem to be compatible - contact canon and they might have plans to release an xp driver this link has dos drivers for the bcj80; http://alpha03u.c-wss.com/inc/ApplServlet?SV=WWUCA900 Hope this helps - other option would be to go back to windows me/2000 or get an xp capable printer - if you get a new one make sure it can deal with windows vista as well in case you upgrade in the future :)
