Known Issues

Printing Gibberish When Attached to a Packard Bell PC

If the printer is attached to a Packard Bell 9000 Series PC, then go into the Control Panel and then Fonts, and look for the Font WPBOXDRAWING. If it is there, then delete it. Also check that the Canon printer is set as the default printer.

Black Page When Printing Faxes

If when you print a fax, it comes out as a solid black page, go into the printer's properties and set the printer to Mono.

Compressed first line in offline test print

When performing an offline self test, the first line is compressed. This happens when the Smoothing feature for Non-Windows applications is enabled. To stop this, disable the Smoothing function using the DOS based BJSETUP utility.

Problems with Cartridge Detection / Slow Printing With BC-02 Cartridge

When using the BC-02 cartridge, printing is very slow. Cartridge detection (or Status Self Test Page) indicates that the cartridge is either BC-05 (Colour) or BC-06 (Photo). To solve this and other problems with cartridge detection,

  • Power off the printer
  • Hold Power for 6 Beeps
  • Release Power

Will not print in colour in DOS Applications

Cannot print in colour even though colour is selected and a BC-21e printhead is installed in the printer.

When printing in colour, make sure that the colour cartridge (BC-21e) is installed in Holder 1, otherwise the printout will be in monochrome. Also insure that the "Print in black ink only" check box is not checked.

Power light flashes and the printer does not work

Try removing and reinstalling the cartridge.

Printer switches itself off after 1 minute

This printer has an AutoShutoff mode, check the printer driver properties via the Control Panel under CONTROL. You can disabled it if you wish, note the printer also has an AutoPower ON mode when a print job is sent aswell.
