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
Have you replaced the ink cartridge recently?
Service error 6502 is an ink tank position sensor error.
Service error 6502 generally means that your ink cartridge chips cannot be recognised. The primary cause of this is the blockage of the LED. Ensure that no tape, glue etc is covering the chip or LED on the rear of the cartridge.
Problem more prevalent on third party replacement cartridges or ink systems.
