A printhead is not the same as a cartridge, without going into great detail.
Try carefully removing and reseating the cartridge.
Is it a branded cartridge or a compatible one?

Printheads, the green container the ink tanks fit into. There are two types:
BC-10 (holds one wide black ink tank)
BC-11e (holds one narrow black ink tank, and one wider 3-color ink tank)
BCI-10 (black, fits only into BC-10 printhead)
BCI-11 (black, fits only into BC-11e printhead)
BCI-11 (color, fits only into BC-11e printhead)
Note there are two BCI-11s; on both the box and on the foil pouches in the box, underneath "BCI-11" it will say either "Black" or "Color"; futher, on the pouch, the writing will be in black for "Black", and in red for "Color".
Hope this is in time help.
Mirpurlady, just two weeks ago I had the same problem you have; the only solution seems to be to replace the printhead. I'm in the US; the printheads are no longer carried in the stores, I presume because these BJCs are no longer sold in the stores. One company, Office Depot has the printheads in their catalog for US $42.25. It might be cheaper to buy a new printer, or find a used BJC-70 (uses black printhead only), BJC-80 or BJC-85. The printheads are rated for 3000 pages at, doing this from memory, 5% ink coverage.
I also have the successor to the BJC-85, the iP90; ugh!, I much prefer the BJC-80.
I stocked up on printheads a while back; if you can't find anything in your area, I do have both a BC-10 and a BC-11e that I will sell, if that is permitted through this forum.

"Temperature error" seems an esoteric way of saying your printhead may have run its course.
