Canon BJ-200 Print Driver for WinXP?

Q: Canon BJ-200 Print Driver for WinXP?

I pulled an old printer out of the closet to use on a new PC that I am building...just to have a printer connected to it. It doesn't work with the print driver provided with WinXP and Canon no longer supports it. Does anyone know where I might find a print driver for it. It prints test pages very nicely.

I recently bought the supposedly excellent Canon MP530 multi-function printer,etc. and went to install it on my WinXP pro machine and . . . nothing. I've spent some time with Canon tech support (some helpful, some not so helpful) but I still can't get the freakin' things to communicate with each other. The consistent result of my installations is "no driver is installed" or "cannot find driver" - even though the driver itself seems to install. Also, when I turn the printer on, I get the New Hardware Wizard, which, I think, means my computer is detecting the printer. It's as if the driver is just not recognized by my computer.
I've installed (and uninstalled) the drivers from both the disc that came with the printer and from the Canon website. I've used two different USB cables. I've tried many combinations of plugging/unplugging, starting/restarting, turning on/off - all to no avail.
I've logged on as the Administrator. I've done my best to shut down any programs or processes- though I think this is tricky, as I don't necessarily know what each thing in my Startup or Services is. I've even tried installing from SafeMode. I've tried using the New Hardware Wizard; I've tried ignoring the New Hardware Wizard. I've received a few error messages, but only when attempting the full installation from the disc. The messages are: "AddPrinterDriverEx Error:2", "AddPrinter Error:1797&... Read more

Preciously I had my Canon i9100 installed on a windows XP machine and working well.
I have since updated to a windows 7 (64bit) machine and can't install the old driver from the CD. "The CD Rom cannot be used with the current operating system."
I am aware there is a patch which I have downloaded but it can't patch what is not there.
Please advise me of how to proceed.

I'm trying to install a new driver for my Canon i560. When I click on the "Printer Driver Setup" I get the message: "C is not a registered protocol," and I can go no further. I have deleted i560 from my computer following the "uninstall" instructions on the setup page. That went smoothly. So, how do I respond to the "c is not a registered protocol" to start the installation?

Problem with Canon i865 printer driver, New PC with XP Home & SP2, 1024Mb memory, Intel 805 dual core 64 bit cpu 2.66Ghz printer connected via USB printer will print any colour but black! tested using word & notepad, paper motion and printhead motion normal but no ink applied to paper! have tried original i865 install disk, v1.73 driver d/l from web, and i865 drivers in xp home only thing of note is that at end of installation driver setup has great difficulty locating USB port that printer is connected to.

A:Print Driver Problem - Canon & Xp Home Sp2

Hi RWA, retested, same problem whether using USB parallel cable or networked printer (through my old PC!)Does this mean that you connected the printer to your new PC via its parallel port and had the same problem? If so that certainly ends any question that USB is involved.I would try a complete reinstall of the printer, with the first step including a manual search for /deletion of all Canon files and folders and the same of Canon keys/subkeys in the registry. What a hassle, but I can't think of any other way to be sure that some leftover/corrupt file or setting will not compromise the new installation. You are right, many if not most uninstall programs leave scraps behind.If that doesn't work then Canon has some explaining to do. Have you checked on Canon support forums to see whether anybody else has encountered this problem?

Now that I've got the kids up and running on my old computer - they're in there now playing NFS - I doubt I'll see them for days - I'm back to tweeking my new box.

My printer will not respond. It was working just fine on the old box.

It has power, the little green ready light is flashing (should be solid)

When I try to print something it just says not ready, try again.

Hmmmm, I wonder if it's a driver issue I mused so I went off to and found a driver for BJC-4300 and WinXP. I believe I've installed it, but still no go.

The LPT1 port is showing as working properly. The printer is plugged into the LPT1 - only connection that would fit, and the new box has a cute little pic of a printer beside it. So I'm sure I'm in the right place.

If I've done everything right, then my next step will be to hike this printer down the hall and confirm that is is working. If not then I guess it's time.... I do not want to buy a new printer, I understand that the cartridges are vacuum sealed and cannot be refilled. That just plain bugs me.

I have had my Canon Mp150 for 4 years. It has been working perfectly until a week ago. When I went to print out something, the printer had said "paper out" even though there was a good amount of paper inside and it was perfectly aligned. I kept trying to print but the printer wouldn't print. Is there any way I could fix this? Thanks in advance.

Could be dirty paper rollers slipping. Go to Canon Support for the MP 150 and type in "paper does not feed" in question box. Will give you a list of things to try. First on list should be cleaning the rollers.

Canon MP780 won't print. Get this message:

"Collecting printer status."

Windows XP, Home edition. Printer connects via USB port.

Efforts I have made to remedy:

1) Checked plug
2) Ensured printer was on
3) Ensured printer was online
4) Refreshed print job - nothing
5) Cancelled and retried, about 20 soap
6) Removed all drivers
7) Downloaded drivers from CD
8) Removed drivers again (thinking CD just might have corrupted file)
9) Downloaded drivers from Canon site for MP780, Windows XP Home
10)Ensured that .exe file was executed and that drivers were loaded
11)Tried a second USB port, in case first was dead

I am out of ideas. The print job merely queues up and sits there, with the 'status' column remaining empty, and the LPT1 port remarks always come back, "Collecting port status."

Ideas, suggestions welcomed.

Canon L6000 suddenly will not print (XP 'Test Page' IMMEDIATELY gives a "failed to print error" - other programs all sorts of immediate printer errors.) This was after a year of working fine.

The L6000 itself works with the same printer cable on a notebook machine - so it is not a problem with the printer unit, rather with communication to my system. Uninstalling-reinstalling drivers and software does not help. I have not only control panel uninstalled but also removed all "Canon" , "Mpass*.*", CIS1284, etc from the hard drive and the Registry (HKLM/CurrentControlSet/Enum/Root/ - etc.) before reinstalling the lastest drivers. The drivers load normally; MPSERV process IS running, but my system does not communicate with the printer. I also uninstalled/reinstalled the LPT1 Port, checked and adjusted the BIOS parallel port (tried changing addresses, IRQ, ECP, Bidirectional, etc.) and assured that Parallel Port Properties allows IRQ and legacy use. The Canon "Status Monitor" shows everything OK - and indeed when I unplug the printer, the status monitor gives the expected "printer disconnected" error - so some communication is there. Printer Cable Parallel Port connected directly (no adapters) and now set for LPT1 0378h/IRQ7 "Normal" in BIOS. I tried Restart with MSCONFIG having all non-MS services off and with Firewall (ZoneAlarm) off. There is no LAN, and all other peripherals were detached.

OK, I'm new here, so please be patient with me. This printer has driven me nuts for the past month with one problem after the other. Just when I think I'm almost home free, now it won't print at all. It tries, honestly it does. But the print is so light that I can only see the impression by holding it up to a window.

After going thru the "wrong cartridge" and "paper Jam" messages, orange alarm flashing, I'm finally down to trying to get printer to print. None of the above is happening now. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled, which looks ok now. Only icons showing incorrect is the ink tank levels, which should all show full, but show varying amounts of ink. When I click print, it sounds like it's printing, paper comes thru as if printing, but nothing printed. What now? Pixma MP780, about 3 years old, new Canon ink tanks, cleaned printhead, Vista OS.

It just won't. There isn't a drop of yellow on the nozzle-clog test, even after you do the cleaning routines.

I've replaced the printhead, and I've replaced the yellow print cartridge.

I just rinsed out the old printhead. I'll try it again after it's had a few days to dry.

So my question is this:
Is there anything else I could do to fix this printer? The non-profit I work for balked at the $60 for a new printhead, so they will not be happy if they have to buy a new printer.

My computer is running XP, the MF 730 printer was working with it and had no problems. Then it stopped working! I went to "Printers and Faxes and deleted the printer, then clicked "add printer" and added it back again, using the same port and driver. When the computer was told to print a test page, the test page came up in the queue for the printer every time (probably indicating that the software worked properly), but it would not print. I then went to the Canon website and downloaded the driver software, still no change. I then downloaded the entire setup software from Canon, unzipped it,but when I tried to install it, the message " You cannot use a path which exceeds 128 bits".

Having problems printing in black. The cartridge is fairly new, cleaned the nozzles, reinstalled the drivers but still cannot print text in black. I removed the cartridge and i can see fresh ink on the print head but somehow it's not being trasnferred onto the paper.

There are two possibilities I can think of if you have uninstalled and reinstall already. I have had problems with generic cartridges
causing erratic printing are you using the BC-21. Another possibility is the cartridge is defective. Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the backside with alcohol and a swab?
If all the above fail try another install using driver from Canon.

About 3 years ago this month Tedster posted about the issue he was having with his Canon i860 printer - e.g., that it wouldn't print black. He went through considerable pains trying to fix the problem, and in his last post of that (now locked) thread he wrote, "I've decided to order a new print head.... We'll see how that goes."

By now I'm sure you've figured out that I am experiencing exactly the same problem (yeah, 3 years later!). Canon support has (sorta) tried to help, but their suggestion is for me to take it to an "authorized" repair shop. I don't think so, thanks.

So my question (to Tedster or anyone) is, did the new print head help, or no? (I suspect no.) I loved that printer, but I'm not convinced I want to spend $55-60 for a part I can't return and that won't fix the problem - and that costs about half of what a brand-new printer would cost (i.e., the PIXMA MP620 I just brought home).



A:Canon i8600 Won't Print Black Ink

in short - yes. If you have cleaned the head to no avail, then your only solution is replacing it.

cheaper than a new printer? maybe. Depends on the model. A head will run about $40. Easy to swap out.

I can print in colour ok, some of the colours use black and I know it prints ok there. For example I have created a letterheading with a colour logo, blue, grey and so on, and the text of the letter in in black.
It will print the logo but will not even attempt to print the black text. I have tried cleaning the printer through its software but nothing seems to make it want to print black.

Have you taken the entire head assembly out to check on the print head? (Flip up the gray U-Shaped latch handle up and pull the whole black carriage out.) Check to see if there any buildup of ink there.

Have you seen any warnings about 'Your Ink Waste Tank is nearly full'? This will shut down the black sometimes, and in a machine like an I250, it probably doesn't have replacement parts available. But, no worries... here's a fix -

will need more detail to make an assessment. What happens when you try to print color? Do you only get black ink on the page? Did you remember to remove the tape sealing the cartridge as the directions on the color cartridge indicated? Do you hear any strange sound or get any messages? Does your computer's printer driver/interface indicate you have color ink? The possibilities are many so please zap me back a reply and I will do my best to help.

A:Cannot use canon easy photo print

That is an ancient printer, so it is possible that even though the software installed, the printer will never work with Windows 8.  Did it work before with the previous version of windows you had, on your old computer?  Have you tried a different USB cord, or made sure that the cord was connected to both the printer & computer, and the printer is turned on?  
Looking through some searches, appears that after around Vista, this printer was no longer recognized by current OS's.  The best I can say is welcome to planned obsolescence.

Canon ip4200 printer on windows 7
I try to print a CD-label with the CD-slide, using the label print software that comes on the original Canon CD.
The software says it cannot print because the top cover is open, while it is not. The orange alarm led in the RESUME button blinks 6 times.
Normal printing, taking paper from the A4 sources, goes well. Ink is OK.
I did a printer reset (with POWER and RESUME buttons), which did not help.

As you say it flashes orange light five times consecutively, that means there is a print head error. Reset the print head, then reset the printer. To reset the print head, make sure the printer is on. Open the paper output tray and top cover. Make sure the print head holder is in the center and open the inner cover. remove all the ink tanks. Raise the print head lock lever and remove the print head. Reset the print head and lock the lever. Replace the ink tanks.

But all cartridges had plenty ink left. It said to turn off hte printer and turn back on. I did this many itmes, Print head moved fine but hte sponge on the right side was soaking with ink, apparently ink waste. I blotted it until it was fairly dry. After repeated tries I finally was able to print sometihng but then hte problem repeated itself. 2 cartridges ran out very quickly after being half full, so I knew something was wrong. I repalced both. I also unistalled the printer and reinstalled. Driver device working properly in device manger. Now when I turn on the printer, it not only flashes 4 orange lights with that annoying buzz but the printhead is now not sliding back and forth as its supposed to. Also, I was able to manually slide the printhead whne I cleaned the sponge. Now it is stuck and unmovable.
I chekced the ports and theyre connected yet I think the computer is not reading the printer because evne my laser jet which I havent used in over a year is not priniting. It did print a spec page but it doesnt print from the computer.

Have a Canon PIXMA MG6120 that's ~ 3 yrs. old. It has stopped printing from the large black cartridge. About 2 weeks ago, it started printing very faint or only partial black text, then nothing. Thinking it might be a faulty cartridge, I inserted a new one. Still not printing. Have done head alignment and deep cleaning several times. All the color cartridges work, black does not.

I have removed the print head and have it soaking in methyl alcohol. Don't know if that's going to do anything, but in the meantime, any suggestions from anyone who's had the same problem would be helpful (like washing the head in water with detergent; I've read threads where that was done.

A:Solved: Canon MG6120 will not print black

Having read more articles about clogged print heads, and the fact that there is nothing "electrical" in them, I decided to try soaking the print head in warm water containing some Dawn dish detergent. After about 4 hours, I removed the head and rinsed it thoroughly until I saw no ink coming out of the slots on the bottom. Replace the head and cartridges, did a realignment. The nozzle pattern printout at least now printed the black cross-hatch at the top, but it was not perfect (some lines missing). So I did 2 deep cleanings. The nozzle pattern printout is still not perfect, but when I print a document, it comes out perfectly.

In hindsight, I think the problem occurred because I was using a black (225) cartridge that was over a year old. I suspect the ink had "congealed" to some degree, clogging the head. I inserted a new cartridge, and everything seems to be A-OK.

I will mark the thread 'solved'.

Using a Dell Desktop with XP.

I've had this Canon printer for several years, bought new, and it's been working fine. I usually use grayscale for printing. Awhile back, I replaced the black ink cartridge (OEM) and everything was fine. Recently, I replaced the 3 color cartridges and suddenly my printed page has 1/2 lines and 1/4 lines (as if they've been decapitated) AND lines are skipped, as if I'm printing in triple or double-double spacing. A few lines on the page print correctly, except for the spacing in between. AND where the spacing is, the text is missing--in other words, it's not simply triple space between lines of text, the text is missing where lines are blank or skipped.

I have been browsing and searching for answers, but all I can find is 'do tests' and clean the print head. I do not know how to clean the print head, I do not know where it is or how to remove it to clean it.

Also, when I try to print in full color, the page comes through blank. I put the old cartridges back in and got the same results.

I'm sorry, I don't recall if I printed anything successfully since I replaced the cartridges. All I know is one day it was printing fine. The next time I tried to print, the page was skipping letter spaces and line spaces, looking like a foreign language, and when I tried to print something else, I got the line skipping.

By the way, I'm in the USA.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I have a canon i560s and I recently replaced the ink cartridges.

Now, if I try to print under normal settings, the paper comes out blank.

What's strange is that I can print color under normal settings, but not black. I know theres nothing wrong with the black cartridge, however, because it prints fine if I increase paper and print quality.

Hi there folks, I can really use some help here as I have exhausted all possible solutions to fix this problem.

I have had this printer for about a year now and I steadily been replacing each ink tank with "G&G" Ecosaver" brand ink tanks which all in all been fine. When printing out a map from google maps i noticed the yellow and red ink portions were faded with white streaks threw them. I tried many many deep cleaning operations to clear it up and didn't get any better. I understand that it mixes all three colors to produce black and essentially it seemed all three major colors were affected.

I then proceeded to remove the print head and soak in hot water and run hot water threw the ink tank connections clearing out the ink, after reinstalling them and printing out a multicolor picture several times the colors were temporarily balanced until it returned back to way it was.

So then I went and bought a brand new print head, quickly swapped out the ink tanks and printed out a picture only to meet the same results. I reprinted the picture three times and each one got steadily got better until the fourth, where the yellow and red seem to drastically fade with the familiar white streaks. Also i then noticed a spot of yellow ink staining the top left corner of the page right before it starts printing.

I am out of ideas and I'm not sure how to proceed with this, I"m thinking either the ink is not good for the print head or something deeper is go... Read more

I have a Canon BJC 2100. For a while now, it has been doing the white streak number at or near the top of the page. I suspect that it's the print head, and that I should clean it. However, I cannot easily get it out, and I don't want to use force for fear of breaking it.

I have the user's manual, which for a 248-page (!) document is supernaturally innocent of useful information about the printer. All it tells me is how to punch the little button to get the printer to run through its cleaning routine, and that doesn't do anything to solve the problem.

Can someone out there give me a clue?

A:Clean Canon BJC 2100 print heads

The chances of the print head failing is much higher than one of clogging, if a head clean cycle does not work. Reailistically there is no way that you could adequately clean it if you could remove it, without probably destroying it in the process.

The heads were apparently known to fail, and replacement head-and cartridge units were about the same cost as a new printer, probably now much dearer than a new printer if they are still to be found. The BJC-2100C model is many years old now.

The small black ink cartridge is empty but the system shows the big one full. When we try to print, it won't print at all because it says the black ink is empty. Can we get around this and/or force the printer to use the other cartridge? What makes it only use the small one and not the big one?

FYI we have an iMac w/ Mac OS X v 10.6.8

A:Canon MP560 won't print w/ 1 black ink full and one empty

The larger of the two black cartridges contains pigment-based black ink for photo printing, whereas the smaller one contains dye-based black ink for text (dye-based black gives sharper, crisper text compared to pigment-based).

The printer can detect from the incoming print-data which one is appropriate for it to use, and you can't override that.
You can't force it to use the large black cartridge to print text. You'll have to replace the small one.

My Canon S520 started acting up by refusing to print black, even as it printed color with no problem. I changed the black tank, even though it was still half full, and eventually got black to print. After that (and only after that) color would not print either. The color tanks are full according to the monitor - and according to visual inspection. I've done every cleaning task available on the printer and followd up with my onw housecleaning, but still no joy.
My compter is in a room that frequently experiences temps below 60 degreees F. Could this cause a print cartridge problem? I can now print black and white docs as long as I specify 'greyscale' in the print options, but the color cartridges may as well not be there at all.
I'm hoping there's some funky software solution to my problem, but it may be hardware-related.

Any thoughts?

Help getting & installing a compatable driver for new Photosmart 7520.

Need to have 'Print Preview' in Printer Preferences. Newer Photosmart Printers have very few options under Preferences.

Have tried drivers for Office Jet 6100 & Deskjet 69800 as suggested in HP forums. Neither has 'Print Preview' in Printing Preferences.

My previous Photosmart C310 died, bought the 7520 as a replacement. If I remember correctly, when I upgraded to Windows 7 with the older Photosmart C310 I had to download an alternate driver. That printer worked fine for over 2 years with all the preferences. I failed to note the driver that worked with the C310.

Hope someone can help, or I'll return this one to Costco along with the $130.00 worth of ink.

A:Alternate HP print driver with 'Print Preview' for Photosmart 7520

After a week of frustration, I was able to locate an HP Forum with the information that works.
I used the alternate driver that was from my previous Photosmare C310.
Here is the link. Hope this is helpful for someone in the future.

I research genealogy and do a lot of text printing from my own compter files. The 'Print Preview' feature is crucial to how I print. It is next to impossible to find out if a new printer has this feature before buying. Sales people & manufacturer's website are next to usless.

My friend has a canon i470d. I just reinstalled win2kpro for her because she had multiple issues. After installing her via 4-in-1, usb controller, LAN, SVGA, and audio drivers the printer was ready. It ran through setup seamlessly, and printed test pages without error. We unsuccessfully tried printing text from MSWord, notepad, and outlook. The printhead would move, but no ink would show on the paper. Again, test pages from the printer tools worked fine, including the text portion.

Ok, so I've had my printer for a longggg time now. I got my cartridges refilled recently and haven't used the printer since then apart from a couple of pages the same day. Yesterday I tried to print but it only prints in yellow.
So I figure print head must be clogged. I have ran warm water through it, didn't fix the problem. I sat it in a saucer of isopropyl alcohol until the ink ran. Yay! So I put it back in the computer and did a test print. It only printed in black! Then I ran cleaning and the next test print came out black!!
When I removed the print head unit it had ink smudges of all colours on it, which means the ink must be flowing and that the problem is not the print head but something between it and the paper. I am absolutely clueless on what it could be! Also, where the print head unit comes to rest is always covered in fresh ink, when I check.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Canon Pixma ip1500 Print Head Problems, this will have you speechless!!

I was also very frustrated with my wife's printer. Since she does not use it very often, the print heads get clogged from ink in the printer head. I have successfully cleaning this one by pouring hot water into the print head container and waiting for it to cool down, then following it up with isopropyl alcohol. Using toilet tissue, wipe the bottom of the ink jets until the color and black is about run out. Hold the head level so that the alcohol does not dump out while wiping the jets.

Fill up your cartridges with ink. I buy bulk ink so I don't have to pay so much for ink replacement. I have bottles for each color (C, M, Y) and black that have needle tips. If you do not have this you could use medical dropper bottles. Ask the pharmacist for these and explain what you're doing and he will probably give them to you. They also have syringes with blunt metal tips, but he may be more reluctant to hand those out for fear of drug misuse.

The ink is entered into the top of the Canon branded cartridges by prying off the rectangular covers. Make sure you put the right color ink into the three openings for the color cartridge. To determine this, use a toothpick to poke in and get a sample on the toothpick. Once you know the correct opening, Mark it by either a sticker or sharp steel marker on the cartridge next to each opening. The best way seems to drip the ink into the openings until you have added the amount specified for each color. These cartridges hold 5 1/2 ml o... Read more

Hi guys,

I have an issue with one of our printers.

We have two Canon LBP7200 printers on a network.

One printer has just stopped printing completely. The print jobs are not even queueing. When I attempt to print, it says printing, everything looks fine, but the print job just vanishes.

I tried re-installing the printer, re-installing driver and it still doesn't print!!

The printer status says 'ready' and all settings are as per normal so i can't figure out what on earth the issue is!!

The only unusual thing that i have noticed is that when i log onto the printer by typing the IP address in my browser, everything is in Japanese! My other printer is in English - Usually both printers are in English. So not sure if this is something to do with the issue?

I have run command and pinged the printer with a 100% response.

Hopefully someone can help!!
