Thank you for contacting to Fixya regarding your printer error message 0504.

I would like to inform you that error 0504 refers to encoder strip.

The encoder strip is most likely the problem. Unplug the power from the printer. Open the front cover and move the cartridge carrier to the center. You should see a white ribbon cable, a thin plastic strip and a black belt with teeth.
The thin plastic strip is the encoder strip. It rides in a sensor on the back of the cartridge carrier that you will not be able to see. Reach in with the first finger of either hand and carefully strum the strip as if playing a guitar.
The strip will need to be lowered slightly and brought towards you slightly. Please be careful not to break the strip or your printer will not function. Once you believe the strip is set correctly, plug the power back and try printing the self test. If it slams to the left again, the strip is not yet set correctly.
If you cannot repair the strip, please let us know so that we can assist you further.
Please Note: Fixing the encoder strip is a delicate procedure. During the troubleshooting, if the strip breaks, you will not be able to use the printer.

Next, try to print the self test.

My printer is showing error as "hardware alarm +1308 +131 --- 000004+0381+1317" wat could be the problem


The hardware error indicated on your printer is indicating that the printer is encountering problems when moving the print head.


This error can be indicated if there is any thing which may be preventing print head movement, things you can check include;

The printer ribbon is not jammed and is located correctly in the printer,
You can also check to ensure there is no paper jam of loose paper which may prevent print head movement,
You can also check the carriage shaft to ensure it is free from paper dust or any other obstructions.
With the printer powered off, the print head should slide freely across the width of the printer, you can then see if there is any obstruction to the printhead

On Canon Pixma MP830 printer the alarm is blinking and the window read error 6500. I can't find that number of the manual. What do I have to do in order to print again. Thanks. ...


Hello,

The error 6500 refers to other hardware error. This error results from printer hardware failure and the only solution is replacing the malfunctioning hardware.

It is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you better ask for replacement.
