  1. Have you tried turning the printer on/off?
  2. Did you replace the cartridges with the power on or off? Most printers require you to replace them with the power on.
  3. Try replacing the new one with the old ones. Do you get the same display?
  4. On the printer, is there an alignment button?

Good luck!

Canon error code 6507


Hi

Try the following...

Reset the 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 problem persists contact canon customer support.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

I have a Canon MP510 printer and have changed the print cartridges many times for refills but am now always getting error 6502. I've tried turning it on and off, unplugging it, holding down power button...


hi,
you mentioned that you turn off and on these is on of the solution of your problem
but in your case it doesn't work

error 6502 arise when ink tanks not snapped properly
follow the steps below
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and pull open the paper output tray .
  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)
  3. Open the inner cover.


    CAUTION:
    a. Do not try to manually move or stop the Print Head Holder.
    b. Do not touch any metal parts.
  4. Press on the pushmark.gif mark on the ink tank until the ink tank snaps firmly into place.
note:
Make sure that the ink tank is inserted in the slot that corresponds to the ink tank's color.
5.Ensure that all the ink tanks are installed properly and the ink tank lamps light red.

1 -tank installed properly
2-not installed properly


6. check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.

  • - On: The printer is ready to print.
  • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
  • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
  • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

  1. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover).

    Note:
    1. When closing the scanning unit (printer cover), be careful not to jam your finger.
    2. When starting printing next time, the print head cleaning launches automatically.

Getting "inner cover is open" message


The inner cover is a flap on the inside in front of the carriage when it is at rest when the cover us open. You had to flip the inner cover down to access the ink cartridges.
Open the cover. The inner cover is in the center and need to be flipped up.
Good luck.

My mp600 keeps saying close inner cover-which is closed


I had the same issue, turning off didn't solve it.
There's a plastic flap the width of the print tray just inside that I flipped up and it solved this problem. It is directly in front of the ink tanks. I'm assuming we flipped it down and forgot about it. It seems it needs to stay up, although you wouldn't notice it when it flips down when you close the top, as it closes just fine with it down. It's easy to overlook. This took me a few hours to realize.

The top of the flap has a half circle cut out of it in the middle.

MP500 ink tank cannot be recognized error U043


I had the same problem. My mp630 is also only 4 months old. I replaced all colour ink cartrdiges(inc black), but was only able to release the function for detecting the ink levels for magenta and cyan. Yellow and black then started giving error message U043, with them alternating between working, but never working at the same time. Getting them all clicked in with the lights glowing red does not solve the problem, as once the printer cover is closed, the same error message turns up. The only thing that worked for me is moving the chip slightly out of alignment, by pushing the sliding chip holder, and I only had to do this twice before they all started working and the printer was unlocked.

When attempting to print, I receive an error message which states "Inner conver is open. Close the inner cover and press OK". However, the inner cover is closed...? I have opened and closed...


Are you looking at the canon error window picture that show up on your monitor: It is the front inner flap you see after you open up the two top "covers". I forgot I opened this one looking for a paper jam. The printer cartridges would not even move to the front with this flap opened. After I closed the inner flap it all works (after opening and closing the top two "covers" many times!

Canon MP600 printer


sounds like the inner cover is not seating properly. so, perhaps there is something amiss inside, making that cover not latch cleanly? do a visual inspection(got one of those dental type mirrors?).
