Canon BJC-6100 wont work at all

Well, i just came to print off some work and bumf, the green light turned orange and it started erratically beeping at me. I can't get it to print or run any maintainence programs but I can get it to be recognised on both my desktop and my laptop, so it's not software based. I have tried cleaning it, changing the cartidges and ink tanks, rebooting, reinstalling drivers etc, all to no avail.

if i can't get this damn thing working, what other canon printers use the same cartridges and ink tanks as the 6100? I just bought a load of them and i can't return them ?

Have you checked the manual on the install CD for the error code indicated by the flashing light, it may tell where to start.

Other BJCs that I know of that take the same tanks are the 6200 and the 3000.
