Cannon Bubble Jet 4100 Printer

My Cannon BJ 4100 is 10 years old, I gave it to my mother for her computer, and after seting it all up, and it makes all the sounds that it wants to start printing, but the on light flashes on and off. Is it out of ink? or something else? I used the disks to set it up. Help?

Does the machine beep 5 times and flash both the power and error lamps? If so then the Waste Ink tank/pad is full and needs to be cleaned and the printer counter reset.

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

Canon BJ 200 InkJet Printer Problem

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 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
Iqbal
