Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
Clean the rollers down where the paper sets in the printer. Do not use cheap generic matte coated paper. Some generic matte coated paper will leave a film on your rollers and cause them to not grip the paper.
I had to reread your first post the mention of what to
do with all the photo paper. I see you mean that you don't use matte
photo paper you use matte heavy weight paper. I guess I mean that as a
question! That is the only thing that works for me with no smearing
problems. I haven't found one that is thick enough for a good feel. I
used an avery matte paper that has a coating for photo but it just
feels very light. Doesn't smear and looks sharp but very light weight.
What brand do you use ?
The top-loading sheet feeder accommodates approximately 150 sheets
(depending on weight), and the front feeder is good for around 100
sheets. Actual media sizes supported by the main feeder (top-loading) include A4, B5,
A5, Letter, Legal, Envelopes (DL size or Commercial 10), 10x15cm(4" x 6"),
10x18cm, 13x18cm, 20x25cm, and Credit Card (54x86mm), while the front
feeder is less accommodating with just A4, Letter, and B5.
CANON PIXMA IX IP 4000 - error 5100 and error 6502
While testing the printer the cover must be closed! So if you have a CISS in your printer you have to close the cover after replacinq cartridge because after that replacinq the printer is testinq the cartridges also with the blinkinq LEDS which are installed on the ink's! There is a light LED sensor under the cover which detects the blinking. So if you have destroyed the LED on chips or if you covered them with glue OR if you will leave the cover opened and press cover-open detection button with a pen (then the day ambient light will come inside to cover) you will get an error 6502 or error 5100. I think that the same error will come with all printers which use CLI8 CLI-8 cartridges. Remebre that the blinking led have to be clean and blink after installing new cartidge.
Other reason is that you mixed the chips ang give i.e. chip from yellow to blue and blue to i.e.red. and black to yello etc etc. (YOU MIXED THEM :) ) I hope it will help
You may have overloaded your paper feeder with heavy card stock and caused a very tiny jam that you have not found yet so that it will act oddly as it is. Look right up inside unit with a torch and down back where the paper goes in.Try printing on plain a4 agian, place a small stack in feeder, reset paper guides too. Also could be your paper sensor, fixable under warranty.
