Try removing cartridges and manually claening the heads with cleaning solution and cotton bud (q-tip) replace. Print. No luck? Now try uninstalling and reinstalling printer.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502

Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message 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 extinguished.

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 go.

Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before 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 again and 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 useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.

Not Familiar with brand "X".. Know about brand "X" washing powder anmd "DAZ". I take it is not the same.

OH! I hate the words "Just Formatted My Computer". Ypou have actual answered your own question, please please say you have the "OLD PRINTER PROG" or a copy lurking on a long forgotten copy CD?

Yes! it will be trial and error, reload the old version of your printer. New updates sometimes leave out differant suppliers and their progs, infact they may have fallen out, we will never know.

As a matter of interest, reinsert the old cartridge and see if it sees that though empty, then if fails to see that you have your answer.

Were's is "WV" I'm in the UK. Hope all works?

E2 error => paper jam (no paper)

E3 error => paper jam (take out the jammed paper)


I would reset your printer if this keep comming out.

1.Switch the Printer ON by pressing the Power Button (Make Sure Paper is not Loaded)

2.Once switched on, hold down the Power Button (DO NOT RELEASE)

3. Now press the Cancel Button and let go of it

4. Now Release the Power Button

5. Wait...

6.The INK LED will light up,

7. After a while it will attempt to print a sheet but because there is no paper the resume button will blink
Now press cancel

You have completed the steps and now should be able to print if not attempt this again from STEPS 1-7



If you would like to save money, try refill kit by "ROADINK".
Not only they are easy, but also the printing quality is good.
For your better understanding pls check out my youtube video.
And will see how easy ink refill can be done.

Pixma MG 2120 won't scan


You may need to download canon's navigator program to retrieve the scan. The printer driver will not do that. Just google "canon navigator (plus your printer model) and the program should come up.

I have a PIXMA iP4300 and just want to use it for black and white document printing. My 'M' and 'C' color cartridges ran out a while ago and I disposed of them but didn't replace them...


Hello,
Most of the Canon printers form the PIXMA iP series block printing when one of the cartridges is empty. You have some options: 1) change the cartridges (with original or compatible) 2) buy a chip resetter and reset the empty cartridges chip so they can cheat the printer that they are full. This way you will clog the nozzles of your print head and the printer will become useless and won't print.
That's why I suggest you to but even cheap compatible cartridges and replace them.
Hope this helps. Alex

My cannon pixma MP150 just won,t print or do anything, it is connected to the computer alright & the computer says that it is connected but it just won,t print or scan, can you please suggest anything...


probably you need to download the driver for windows 7 in the canon website.(www.canon.com.sg) if this doesnt solve your problem check the led and display of your printer. if the led blinks alternately in orange and green it means that your printer needs to be brought to an authorized service center for resetting and diagnostic.
