ERROR CODE 6502
1 – With the printer unplugged, remove the ink cart to the right.
2 – Plug in the printer; press the power button (Do not release the power button and then press the resume button twice in succession). Now release the power button, and press the resume button 4 times.
3 – The beeper my sound once, then with the printer unplugged (your printer should reset) open the printer and this process should be finished.

I had the same error after unsucessful cartridges detection for days and days. I used the above tecnique and it did the job.
I just want to make this solution a bit more clearer
1- Turn your printer on and when the cartridges holder come into the centre UNPLUG the main power and take the right hand side cart.
2- Plug in the main cord into your printer and apply the above in # 2 solution. (I had a look into my printer catalog and couldn't find the RESUME key, but I just pressed the RESET key which is in right hand side medium size round key with red triangle circle mark) and it did the job.

My MX922 printer worked well this morning. All cartridges have ink but ALL lights under the cartridges are on and print comes out blank. There are no error codes or anything abnormal displayed


This problem is mainly happens to all inkjet printers. If your printer print blank pages then please at least once go to official site of Canon and check whether there is any printer/scanner drivers update is available or not. If yes then download it. Also check your ink cartridges. Because if there is no print on paper that means your ink might be dry.Sometimes it clog the print head. If your ink cartridges get dry change it. Or you should clean your printer's print nozzle by using printer's control panel. I hope all these suggestions helps you. If doesn't then watch Canon MX922 Manual English

How does one rest ink chip on Canon Prixma MP 980?


I believe you have to press resume to get the non chipped carts to work.At this time there ar no resets available other than the resume.
You will void your warranty.
Call Canon and tell them the printer is not working and take advantage of your 1 year warranty and only use Canon inks from now on or until reset is available.
If you want you can mention that you USED non Canon ink.

Nothing get printed


Could be your ink cartridge is already dry, its 8 month could make your cartridge to dry out. Or if it is with some print head then it is maybe clogged also.

Canon pixma ip3000 won't print


Check usb cable if they are installed firmly and correctly. Check proper voltage input though designed as Autovolt system.
Try plugging the usb cable on another free usb port or you may try another computer to check if your printer works.
See if there are blinking lights and error codes. You can google for its error codes.
Check flex cable continuity, maybe some rodents have eaten it.
Remove ink cartridge, turn the power off and clean cartridge contacts including the holder contacts, turn it on and return cartridges. You may try borrowing a working ink cartridge of the same type from a friend.

Cannot recognize ink cartridge


I have about 6 canon printers with a 3in 1 using PG40 and CL41. I have never encountered the problem you have. I have looked into some other sites and noticed a number if CLI-8 cartridges being replaced by Canon. I think there are only 2 probable problem areas, he cartridge or the software you are using. I suggest you call up Canon and complain about this problem. Seems like you got the printer 6 months or so ago. You should able to get to do something like replace the printer or cartridges. I'm assuming that you don't refill or have your cartridges refilled so the contact points should not be messy w/ ink. You can try cleaning the contact points on the cartridges and printer. But I'd call Canon and explain to them the situation and see if they can solve your problem. Solve I'm implying is to replace your cartridges or printer. Let me know if this helps.

Ink tank


Users having problem like ink cartridge is only partial used, but error code appear to check ink cartridge, maybe trying to taking out and putting back, it works sometime and problem occurs again,
  • By replace a new ink cartridge will sure help as the partial used one would be faulty already, and if you are using Canon ink cartridge, do call up Canon to report the issue and they will exchange a new ink cartridge for the faulty partial used cartridge as it due to the unique feature that Canon has build on the ink cartridges not properly done, which resulted to be faulty. Canon's purpose is to prevent the usage of 3rd party ink cartridges.

Canon Pixma MP610 CARTRIDGE PROBLEM


HI. Try holding the reset button for 6 seconds to overide the error. This may dissable the chip so it won't report but will allow you to keep printing. Simply check the ink tanks visually.

Refilling will give the same error too, again dissable the error.

Are you using official Cannon cartridges or "ink refill" cartridges? Did you reset your ink levels in the software?
