Error code 6500 on my mp8630...unplugged everything for hours...the printhead will not move back into place

Hello thanks for using FixYa
To solve error 6500 First try this:
  • Reset the printer:
  • Turn the printer off with the Power button
  • Disconnect the data cable from the printer.
  • Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in.
  • Turn the printer on. If this works you have solved the problem
If not try the next step
  • After confirming that the printer is powered on,open the paper output tray
  • Open the top cover and wait until the print head moves to the center.
  • Open the inner cover and check that ink tanks are properly seated.
  • Press down on each ink tank until a click is heard.
  • Close the inner cover and top cover.

Also do you have any kind of data equipment like a camera connected, if so this could be causing the problem as well. Unplug it if so and see if this is the problem after the above steps

I hope this helps, because Canon doesn't even have support for an error code 6500.
If it all fails the final & best option is to take it back where you purchased it or contact Canon service center about the error code. They will surely solve it.

I hope this solution was helpful for you.
Please give me token of appreciation as FOUR THUMBS
(given below to this solution) "it if it helps you"

Thanks & Keep using FixYa

My canon mp830 printer is saying error 6500 and i cannot get it to do anything, i have un plugged and re plugged and nothing. what does this error code mean?

The service error 6500 refers to "other hardware error". This error results from printer hardware failure & nothing much can user do instead of replacing the malfunctioning hardware. 6500 is generally logic board error code. If the printer is under warranty, you can ask for replacement

$7 is the charge for the service provided.

I can't even fax from the machine with error code 6500 showing. Thus, it isn't just a printing problem.

Error code 6500 on the MP830 is for a PCI bus error. The Canon service manual suggests the remedy is to replace the Logic Board. That wouldn't be cost effective if you could even get the spare part.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Error code 6500

That's a strange error for that machine, a network error? I would try removing the printhead and see if the error changes to printhead not installed, could just be a defective printhead which can cause strange errors.
