Canon Printer Picms MP450 Error 6500

My Canon Printer was just over warranty at that time. It displayed error 6500 at the beginning when the printer was on. That was a while ago. When I put the refilled black ink and new colour ink, smoke came out from the black cartridge at the left side of printer. I unplugged the printer right the way. I just wonder whether it is worth to fix or get rid of it. Someone told me that the leaking ink touches the electric wire to get burn smell and can not use refill ink. So, I cleaned both cartridge areas with alcohol Q-tip at left and right sides of printer as far as I can. I decided to buy new black cartridge and I know that I can not return cartridge as soon as open.

Now, I put the new black cartridge and colour cartridge, no smoke coming out. I did not hear cradles moving to the right and busy sound at all. However my colour ink becomes mess up and only has big area of black ink that supposes to be 3 lines of different colors when I tested on paper towel because I stored colour cartridge with plastic wrap in the frig door for a while, I think, or black ink went into colour cartridge on some how. After putting cartridge, Error 6500 still displayed. I don’t mind colour mess up, as long as the printer is working. I believe I did not clean enough of leaking ink on the wire. I am a kind of worry to open the printer and can not put it back properly. Please tell me, so I can put it back properly. I don’t want to send to the repair shop. It is more expensive than I buy a new printer. Now, I am stuck because I bought black cartridge already. I hope not to buy new colour cartridge again. Besides, cartridges are expensive and I will regret that I decide to fix at the beginning. Oh well.

Please help me. I really appreciate any suggestions.

They don't like re used cartridges.
I would purchase a new printer as they are not economic to repair.

press and hold (stop/reset) for at least 5 seconds, then release it. It will tell the printer that refilled ink tanks are installed. Therefore, allowing printing to continue.

SOURCE: Refilled ink cartridges not recognizby printer.

Hi, I have the same printer. There is no such thing as a special chemical added to the ink. The cartridge has a memory chip and remembers the number of droplets used by each cartridge. This is Canon's way of getting you to buy THEIR INK at outrageous prices. You need to reset the ink level indicator on each cartridge that you refill. Then be sure to refill the ink cartridge before it gets too low. Check out a CIS system that are available for this brand of printer. Don't buy into this special bogus ink story.

Error code 6500


*Error Code - [6500]

*Conditions - The PCI bus error is detected by the ASIC.

*Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y

The service error 6500 refers to "other hardware error". This error results from printer hardware failure & nothing much can user do instead of replacing the malfunctioning hardware. 6500 is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.

Turn on and error 6500 displays? How to fix?


The Service Manual for the MP500, which is very close to the MP450, indicates that the error code of 6500 is a PCI buss error and this is a Service Error Code. Typically this is an internal error of one of the ASCI chips on the logic board and can only be repaired by replacing the logic board at the Canon Service Center.

If you want to take the time to try and repair it, you can take the unit apart and search for a loose connection, or unplug and replug all connections. Other than that, you can sell it for parts.

Good luck

My new canon pixma MP450 has an error code of 6500 on the display panel. Can you please tell me how to fix it


this is printer logic motherboard problem

The 6500 error code is a logic board error code. The PCI Bus error is detected by the ASCI. Sounds like it needs new logic board. but i suggest you to first of all you can try to reset your printer -

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button (if available).
2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in.
4. Turn the printer back on. If this works you're done, if not try the next step.

1. After confirming that the printer is powered on, open the paper output tray.
2. Open the top cover and wait until the print head moves to the center.
3. Open the inner cover and check that ink tanks are properly seated.
4. Properly seated
5. Press down on each ink tank until a click is heard.
6. Close the inner cover and top cover

if reset method not works for you then you go for the new logic board replacement .


Hope this helps. Please rate my response.
Thanks.
Have a good day.

Canon PIXMA MP450 "Servic Error 5100"


Try this... it worked on my MP450... Turn the printer on and open the lid, it shows the cartridges. Now let the cartridges settle to the left. You can notice that the cartridges run on a metal belt. It might be dirty, mine showed a black stripe on it. Take a cloth, a cleenex will be fine and clean it up. Move the cartridges to the right (force them with your hand) and clean the part of the belt left behind them. Now turn it off, close it up and turn it back on. It should work

Hi, my canon pixma mp450 is not feeding the paper thru properly.


We had the same problem so we opened the screws up at the back, gave it a shake and suddenly a asweet wrapper appeared. We then put the screws back in and it started printing again! Good Luck!
