Question about Canon BJC 8200 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Canon Copier I have a Canon copier with separate ink cartridges. I was printing out pictures and the blue ink ran out. Replaced the blue ink with a regular Canon ink cartridge - not refurbished - and then the pictures would only print out in red. I took out all of the ink cartridges and put them back in - turned off the printer and back on - turned off the computer and back on. Can't figure it out because it was printing fine minutes before the change (I had printed out 10-12 pictures). Any ideas

    I fixed by running a maintenance on it and it fixed it.  I didn' t realize you could do that though until I checked this website.  Thanks again.

Ran out of black ink. replaced cartridge. now


If it ran dry before you replaced it then you need to do a deep clean of the head. This can be done under the maintenance tab of printer properties. If that doesn't get it working then physically remove the print head and clean it with a water moistened cotton bud (make sure you use a separate cotton bud for each ink nozzle). Running a cartridge completely dry can (and often does) damage the print head (overheats due to lack of cooling provided by the ink flow).

Scanned pictures are printing with different colors


Are the ink cartridges refilled or compatible? They may be defective.
Are they installed correctly (not in the wrong slots)?
** Note that even if they are replaced it will take SEVERAL pages before the quality returns

Pixma MP830 is printing things green that should be red


when you change all new cartridges (make sure all cartridge ok, and the cartridge pins connection ok) still red color lost, it is the trouble at print head ink chanel some of that is too dry for longer time less using , most CANON printer head is separated from the ink cartridge, two way you may try:
1) take out the ink cartridge, drop down a little the special cleaner (best clean tools buy from dealer), to the head ink chanel hole, then set back the ink cartridge and waiting minutes
2) try put the print head bottom surface touch a little cleaner or water 1-2 hrs, if you can take out the print head unit. still not fixed for some case that should change the print head unit.

I've been doing a great deal of printing with very much left to do. All of a sudden, this afternoon, the prints are all coming out purple.


Most likely you ran out of ink. Canon uses separate cartridges for yellow, magenta and cyan.

Check your ink levels. If the ink is okay, your print heads might be the problem.

Good luck

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
