BJC-85: Driver


Looking for a driver for the BJC-85.  Canon does not support as machine is 15 years old.



Hi, Smokey491!

So that the Community can help you better, we need to know exactly which operating system is running on your computer (i.e. Windows or Mac OS, and which version thereof). That, and any other details you'd like to give will help the Community better understand your issue!

If this is a time-sensitive matter, click HERE search our knowledge base or find additional support options HERE.

Thanks and have a great day!

Thanks, Danny.

I am using a 2018 MacBook Air, iOS 10.14.6, Mojave

When I select Print, the system cannot find the BJC-85 even though it is directly connected to USB port. It also cannot find an update.

I am having a similar problem. Thises are the messages I get. One is the msg in the Mojave Settings. And the one on the Canon website.


So how can we get this printer to work with a Mojave OS?canon webMessage in Mac Settings

I have the same problem with BJC-80. The operating system is Windows-7. I will need the driver and software.

Hi. The BJC-80 has been retired. Once a product is retired, the official Canon support content (troubleshooting articles, user guides, how-to videos, etc.) is removed from the Canon website.

To take advantage of Canon's innovative technologies, consider what we have to offer by consulting with our Canon Upgrade Program specialists by calling 866-443-8002.

Good reason NOT to buy Canon products. Thanks for the heads up. Most dependable companies maintain an discontinued or EOL page for long time patrons. See IBM Lenovo web site and others. Only issue with these mobile printers is lack of consumables and seems they wont work on 64bit systems, ALPS printers have similar issues since sold out. But these are great pri ters and only option for many aspects. The pixima was never in same class.

For everyone looking for drivers, I highly recommend Guten-print. It is open-source and updated as needed.

this is only for Mac 10 and above 64bit. no other OS and limited printers. so NOT an option. plus its been years since updated. only offers source file for linux and zero for windows

yes all mobile printer models in BJC series been discontinued 2 decades now but no excuse not to have drivers for them for Windows 7 64 bit OS as it was out back then as was Windows XP 64bit so newer OS drivers were needed b4 dropping this line and going to the failed Pixima series. mac, linux etc came along later and drivers for them are out. why not for windows? thses old printers are still the only viable option for mobile office needs that fit in laptop bags made by Canon. Epson has another (100 series) but not as many features etc and ink is harder to find. why Canon never upgraded the BJC Mobile printers to lazer is beyond me.
