Canon BJC-85 Error Codes by Chris (3/4/04 6:56 AM) reply + / -
Hi,

I have a Canon BJC-85 that won't print. When first plugged in, the printer beeps 8 times and then the error and power lights keep flashing.
Does anybody know what this error means? Can anything be done? Thanks!

I believe your printhead may have failed.

Visit the site below for detail on error messages relevant to your Canon as well as other older models:

8 beeps is a "Temperature Error". like Rudy suggested try replacing the Print head, if this fails then the printer requires service.

I have a BJC-85 when i power up i get three beeps, the power button continually blinks and the print head moves to the center of the. after many minutes i get a solid light @ power and resume. taking out and re-installing the print head did not work.

I have a canon BJC-85 and I get an error with 2 beeps.
Any suggestions on how to get out of the error so that I can use the printer?

I use Mac OS 10.6.2

I now get error code 12 which says that I have wrong cartridge (black) in and settings call for colour cartridge.

The printer works on old Mac and on this one will print out test page but refuses to print when using black cartridge only. Any suggestions?

When you had this 8 beep problem did you change the printhead and was this the problem, mine is doing this and canon is no help they just suggest to buy a new one.

Did anyone ever give you a fix? Yours is the only thread I can find on this problem.


Re: Re: Canon BJC-85 Error Codes by Corpsvet (10/3/10 7:32 PM) reply + / -
8 beeps is a temperature rise error. This as almost always due to a defective print head. Sometimes even a new head can be defective and give this error. Part of the printing process is the print head heating up the ink passing through it. These print heads actually get pretty hot at the contact points while printing. The printer monitors the temperature. If the print head produces to high a temperature , the error is generated. The solution is almost always replacing the defective print head.
