how would i know this error is for which printer so i am assuming it's cannon.
Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges
with chips will give error mesaages like 6502 or other types of error
meaasge to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing
and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often
resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.
When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is
First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both
are held down at same time
When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let
resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button
Then press resume button four times, power button should be
releasedbefore doing this.
Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will
not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15
seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally
solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.
Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been
disabled,the low ink warnings are showing againand they will have to be
disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears
the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be usefull
if you need some warranty work done on you printer after the chips had
been disabled. Canon does warn that disabling the chips may result in
the printer's warranty being voided
