Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer pulled through a crumpled piece of paper. I cleared all paper, now the yellow light is flashing and I get error 6502. When I turn off printer and turn back on (have done this 10 times), it moves around then I get a scratching sound like the ink tanks can't get back to the right spot. I had to move the ink tanks manually to get the paper out. Again, the light flashes and error 6502

How do I clear paper jam


The flashing error code that indicates a jammed printer is the digital-age equivalent of a flat tire. Sooner or later it happens to everyone, so you'd better know how to get things moving again if you want to finish your print job.

1.Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred.

2.Turn off the printer.

3.Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

4.Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.

5.If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

6.If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

7.If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though.

8.Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

9.If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.

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.

Welll its not a canon but ew are in dire need. Our 16 month old OKI b4600 wont print.Error message says clear paper jam. cant find a jam swapped tray, cartridge/drum etc. No luck. Any suggested


Hi There and Welcome to Fixya,

Usually, paper jams can occur at the input location right at the bottom of the printer - always remember that even a tiny piece of paper can cause halt in printing, hence, the error message.

Here's what I'm suggesting for you to do :
  • Start with pulling out the tray from the printer and look for ANY crumpled/pieces/fragments of paper that could be tucked in.
  • At the bottom of the printer is the feed area - do the same thing and remove any pieces of paper.
  • Ensure that it's absolutely "paper fragment free" before returning the tray back at the printer.
  • Next, is to open the top cover and carefully remove the drum.
  • Remove any pieces or fragments of paper that you find.
  • Carefully slide back the drum, ensure that everything snaps into place.
  • Close the top cover.
  • Restart your printer.
I most certainly hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

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

My Canon i 560 s will not print and this is the error message, I followed instructions, no change, won't print, yellow light flashes ,"Operator error. Press the printer's RESUME button. If this doesn't...


Turn off your PC, turn off the printer. Open the printer and check for paper jams, push/pull the ink cartridge carrier left to right to ensure it also isn't jammed.

Only use a small amount of paper (10 sheets). Too much paper can sometimes block the feeder

Turn everything back on, try again.

Red light blinking on printer


I had this problem, and it turns out that there was still paper hidden in the machine, even though it was not obvious.  Even if you pull out paper from the top and check the tray, also do open the back and then open the flaps inside.  There can be a very crumpled and very well hidden piece of paper there!

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