Canon mp830 error code 6502


Hi Dee,
The error code 6502 indicates an ink tank position sensor error.There's no communication between the printer and the newly installed cartridges.To clear this,you have to remove the cartridges,check the plastic tape usually around them when new and make sure you COMPLETELY remove this tape.Ensure nothing is covering the chip or LED on the rear of the print cartridge.Also gently wipe out any appearing smudges.


Hope this helps.Thanks!

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.

That error says it's a ink tank position error, make sure there are no paper scraps in the paper path, and you might clean the encoder strip with a q-tip and water. Make sure the carriage can move freely from one side to the other.

Canon Pixma IP600D - error code 6502


Sometimes the Canon printers which use PG-5BK/CL-8 colour cartridges with chips will give error massages like 6502 or other types of error message to do with the cartridges, which has the orange light flashing and the printer will not work. Follow this procedure which quite often resets the printer and allows it to resume printing.

When error is indicated, turn power switch off so green light is extinguished.

First hold down resume button and then hold down power button so both are held down at same time

When green light comes on, continue holding down power button and let resume button go, then press resume button twice. Then let power button go.

Then press resume button four times, power button should be released before doing this.

Wait until printer settles down, if power is off, turn on. If power will not come on, remove power cord from back of printer, then wait 15 seconds before plugging back in again and turn power on. This normally solves the error problem - if not go through same procedure again.

Incidentally, you may find that if the chips had previously been disabled, the low ink warnings are showing again and they will have to be disabled once more. This would indicate that the above procedure clears the firmware memory of the disabling of the chips, this may be useful if you need some warranty work done on your
printer after the chips had been disabled.

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.
