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.
If you get the this printer printing very slowly, try reinstalling it as a BJC4000. Also make sure that the printer is set to Bi-Directional instead of ECP (in the computers BIOS). Also it may be worth going into the printer's properties and try setting the spool option to 'Print Direct to Printer'.
Not Printing Through Infra-Red Port
On some machines, mainly notebooks, this printer will not print via IrDA. Follow these steps to get it to work.
If that doesn't work, then,
When an image is scanned, it prints 4 times bigger then the page
This happens when you are using PAINT to print from. Use the software that came with the scanner or use any graphical/Desk Top Publishing software.
Will not run on battery or battery life is short after charge
Note - The printer will not print if both the Battery and the AC Adapter are plugged in at the same time. If this is not the case, then the battery may need refreshing, as follows,
The battery may get a memory effect, meaning it will not charge to full capacity. This is the purpose of the REFRESH function.
Canon BJC-80, USB driver, & Windows XP
Thanks to Charles Lewis for sending this in -
Canon apparently didn't supply any BJC-80 USB drivers for 2000/XP. The following is the most straightforward, get-to-it way I've found to use a USB driver and cable with a Canon Bubble-Jet BJC-80 printer and Windows XP. All we're doing is using the BJC-85 USB driver for the predecessor BJC-80. I haven't tested this with twenty-hundred.
