Canon PIXMA MP500 - "Error Code 6502"

I recently replaced my ink cartridges (everything was fine beforehand). When I went to print I received the "Error Code: 6502". I've tried a number of things to correct the problem including unplugging the printer, restarting it, hit the reset button 2 then 4 times, and the code is still there. Help!

Try holding the stop/reset button down for 10 seconds to see if the error clears. If it does not repost your error message to the forum.

Canon mp830 error code 6502


Hi Dee,
The error code 6502 indicates an ink tank position sensor error.There's no communication between the printer and the newly installed cartridges.To clear this,you have to remove the cartridges,check the plastic tape usually around them when new and make sure you COMPLETELY remove this tape.Ensure nothing is covering the chip or LED on the rear of the print cartridge.Also gently wipe out any appearing smudges.


Hope this helps.Thanks!

Changed ink cartridge and now have error 6502 - have no clue what that means, but it won't print - yellow and green light alternate flashing


Error Code 6502 appears generally after changing a cartridge.

Solution:
  1. Unplug the printer.
  2. Remove the faulty Cartridge
  3. Plug in the printer and press and hold power button
  4. Keep it held down. Press Resume twice, and this should reset the fault.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Canon MP630 error code 6502


Error 6502 is the ink tank position sensor error. Basically means the printer can't see the inks. Try reseating them. If this fails you need to send it back.

I change my ink cartrges and is sending a 6502 error!!! i am trying to reset the printer but it has been unsuccesfull... please help!!


Try holding the stop/reset button down for 5 to 10 seconds. If that still does not work, turn the printer off and on again...repeating the reset option for a few seconds. If it does not clear then you probably have a print cartridge problem.

Canon Pixma MP500 error


ok I figured out what to do. Open the over take out all your ink cartriages. Then flip the print head level on the left hand side up and squeeze the top of the print head (where all your ink sits on) and lift it up. You may want to blow off any dust that may be in there and put the peint head back and replace al your ink put the level down and you should be good to go if not you may have to replace the head.

Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502


Hello,

What is the brand name and model of your printer? Make sure that your ink cartridges are precisely the correct cartridges for the brand and model that you are using. From what I have experienced ... if you try to use a used ink cartridge you will recieve an error.
