Paper feed limit switch error.
If under warranty - return for a new one. The cost to repair is more than buying new.

Error 6500 - CHECK PRINTER message - how do I fix it


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 .............

Pixma MP170 all in one printer error on led screen ''check printer 6500'' alarm light and power light flashing.


Light blinking 20 times or Error Code [6500] = Hardware Error.
You will need to replace the QM2-3210-000 LOGIC BOARD ASSY.
But it's not worth to do the repair job.
Suggest you consider to purchase a new machine.
Thank you.
