Canon BJ 200 InkJet Printer Problem

My mother-in-law has an old BJ-200 that she just loves because it does nothing but print. We bought it at a garage sale with no manual or instructions. It has been working fine for a couple of years but has quit printing. It sounds like it is printing, but we get a blank page. I tried changing out the print cartridge ( with built in print head), but that did not change/fix anything. The computer thinks it has printed, and the printer even seems to think it has printed.

Where can I get a Manual for this and do you have any idea what is wrong?? Please don't say it is an old printer, get rid of it because she loves it.

Thanks

Ruth

I read on your message that you had a Canon BJ-200ex printer.
Do you still have it and would you offer it for sale to me. I use old software which can only print on this type of printer. If it is not for sale if you or anyone else out there has a Canon BJ-200ex printer for sale i would be most interested in purchasing one.

Thanks

Hello Ruth:

Somewhere on this website should be my comments on your problem but I can't find them, so here's a repeat. Sounds like the print head is clogged. With power on, press the Online and Print Mode buttons simultaneously until the lights to the left of the Online button blink. Normally, this takes a few seconds. This is the recommended cleaning procedure for this printer head. If no success, repeat this a few times. If no success, replace your ink cartridge with a Canon BC-02 black ink cartridge (if not already using this) and use the above cleaning procedure before trying to print. If unsuccessful, try a printer repairman.

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.

    Color cartridge errors


    The only reason for getting error "PU IN CARTRIDGE" is that the cartridge is not installed correctly. Follow these steps to reinstall the cartridge which will resolve the problem:

    Note: The same step can be performed for error "photo ink in use" but if this does not resolve the issue, you can try and change the cartridge.

    Installing / Replacing the BJ Cartridge Follow this procedure to replace the BJ cartridge:
    1. Make sure the MultiPASS is plugged in.
    2. Open the document tray.
    3. Lift the document guides to open the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).

    If the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) does not open easily, slide the document guides outward and then open the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).
    Or slide the Document Feed Lever to either the automatic or manual setting.

    Caution: Do not try to manually move or stop the cartridge holder since this may damage the unit. Do not touch the components shown or any metal parts since this may adversely affect operation of the unit and/or affect print quality.

    The MultiPASS has an automatic protection feature that helps keep it from overheating. If the cartridge holder does not move, unplug the MultiPASS and let it cool for several minutes. Then plug it in again.
    Press thingtopress.gifto move the cartridge holder.

    5. Raise the blue cartridge lock lever on the cartridge holder and remove the BJ cartridge.

    Caution: Discard the old BJ cartridge immediately according to the local laws and regulations for disposal of consumables.You may want to place it in a plastic bag to keep any residual ink from spilling. Spilled ink can stain any surface; protect yourself and your work area. If removing a BJ cartridge to use one of the optional BJ cartridges, be sure to store the BJ cartridge in the container provided with your MultiPASS. Otherwise the ink will dry and affect print quality.

    Caution: Discard the cap and tape. Never attempt to reattach them to the BJ cartridge print head. Install the BJ cartridge immediately after removing the cap and tape. Spilled ink can stain any surface; protect yourself and your work area.
    7. With the label facing outward, insert the BJ cartridge into the cartridge holder. Lower the blue cartridge lock lever until it locks into position.

    9. Close the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder).
    10. Close the document tray.
    Note: If you need to unplug the MultiPASS, wait until the unit is in standby mode (date and receive mode displayed in the LCD). Otherwise the cartridge holder may not be in its home position causing the BJ cartridge to remain uncapped and dry out.
