Canon iP 3300 printer service error 6502

1) As soon as i power on the printer it ejects the paper half & gives an error paper jam. Even after removing the paper completely from the printer it gives the error paper jam. This repeats continuously. I open the printer & checked is there any paper particles, I found nothing. I am not able to print any thing because paper jam error can not fix it.

2) Today as soon as i power on the printer head park on left side then start power light green & resume light orange blanks 19 times this may be the service error 6502. How to fix this error.

hope you will guide me to solve these problems. Thanks.

Re: canon iP 3300 printer service error 6502

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 and black to yello etc etc. (YOU MIXED THEM :) )
I hope it will help

Error 6502 came up on my viewing box and I cant get it to clear. I dont know what caused it exactly. I had a paper jam and I pulled the paper out of the rollers to clear it now I have error 6502 and I dont...

Pls do the following :-

Error code 6502 The Error code 6502 can occur in the printer as a result of ink tubes caught under housing and jammed the print head against the right hand side of the printer. The printer is unable to do anything now and it will give an alarm light only. To fix this issue, you need to unplug the printer and then plug it back. You need to press and hold the power button of the printer and click the Stop button twice. You can then release the Power button and press Stop button for four times. The issue will be fixed and you can start your print jobs.

I hope this solution will helpful for you

HPJ4680 says it has a paper jam. Opened all access doors, found no paper jam. Will even pick up a sheet of paper, feed it through the machine but then shows the same paper jam error message.

Hello and Welcome
If you are facing this error their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.

After it if still you have error then it is probably that your Canon printer is in need of servicing by a service professional.
So go to the Canon Service Center. If you want to get support on Call then
Call Canon Support by phone, at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666)

I hope this will surely help you.

The error 6502 is an "Ink tank position sensor error". It may be that the sensor is dirty and needs cleaning. Make sure you haven't got any bright lights shining into the printer.

Paparjam but we have no paper

There is a "sensor" that detects the "paper-jam" status.
That sensor is reporting that status, even though you cannot see the jam.

Contact your local CANON retailer, and place a service-call for their technician to come out and service your printer.

Canon ip 4500

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Error 6502

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.
