Question about Canon Pixma MP450 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.

SOURCE: Ink Cartridge Refill Error E5
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.

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.

The service error 6500 refers to "other hardware error". This error results from printer hardware failure & nothing much a user can do except replacing the malfunctioning hardware. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response Thanks, Joe
6500 is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.
