If your ink tanks are good, reset the EEProm:
Power off the printer.
Unplug it, then plug it back in.
Wait until it stops its initialization sequence.
Press and hold the power button.
Allow the printer to beep 7 times, then release the power button.
This will reset the EEProm to factory default, and should clear your problem.

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.

When i print the ink is so light it looks like a blank sheet


get some paper towels and boil some water put in in an old coffee cup. hold the ink cartridges over the water (not in) the steam will clean out the nozzles on the cartridges. the ink will run a lil bit (hence the paper towels) give the printing a go again.

hope this helps..

Canon BJC 4400 won't put ink on the paper


You need a new printhead, BC-21E, they wear out and plug with ink and the only repair is to replace the printhead.

Canon BJC 80 prints blank pages!!


i think u already solved your problem...your printer's problem is its printer head...u cannot solve this problem by fixing it yourself.all u can do is to buy new printer head at printer's shop. it is true because i got the same problem with my BJC 200.i do the same solution as u r and lastly, i go to the technician and he said i need to replace my printer head at some price.....just think bout money n i discover that buy a new one is better(as for my problem)

not to discourage u, but try to plan either to buy new printer head or buy a new printer....

hope this solution help... ; )

    Try cleaning the nozzle using the software that came with the printer, if it's been a while since you have printed, try cleaning the head with a cotton swab and some isopropyl alcohol.

    No Print


    remove the cartridge and set it on an alcohol-soaked paper towel in the kitchen sink for about 15 minutes. If the towel has not begun to draw ink out, then tap cartridge firmly against your other hand which is holding the towel. if still none, then try heating the alcohol to about 150 degrees and repeat. if still nothing, then ink is either spent or cartridge head is dried up. take it to cartridge world (or similar outlet store) and they can get a cheap replacement.

    Canon bjc-80 - no print appears but cartridge & paper move normally


    I had this problem too. It turned out there was old dry ink in there clogging up the printerhead and it was fixed after I ran the cleaning programme several times. However I can't for the lifeof me remember how to do that now. I know I found it online but it has since vanished. Maybe check your manual?
