    We have the same problem. After inserting a new magenta cartridge, the machine kept throwing a low ink exception on the printer display panel. Now it says the cartridge is empty, and won't print anything. It is an HP C6180 All-in-one

ERROR6502


Error 6502 is a ink tank position error, one of the contacts for the ink tank in the carriage could be bad, or simply a wrong cartridge installed. You can't use photo magenta in a magenta slot, or photo cyan in a cyan slot.

My printer was printing correctly earlier in the day. I have just replaced two of the ink tanks - the others all have sufficient ink in them. I now have washed out, incorrect colours.


Make sure you didn't put photo magenta or photo cyan where the regular magenta and cyan go, the photo colors are not dark enough, and don't make the proper colors when you print.

Canon i9950 prints green on photo paper


I had the same problem. Having checked other websites I came across the following which narrowed down the problem to the Photo Cyan / Photo Magenta ink tanks, and replacing the Photo Magenta one (although it was not empty) has successfully resolved the problem. Eveidently ink from the original one was not flowing and so caused the syan cast. (I experimented by subsequently removing the Cyan one which produced prints with Magenta cast)

TEXT OF POST I FOUND:-

That post is labeled "Cannon (sic) S9000 Print Head" and concerns a greenish hue error in all print quality levels OTHER THAN plain paper. In other words, all output designated as Photo Paper Pro, Glossy, High Resolution Paper, etc., results in output with enormous and unacceptable levels of green hue. All output designated as "Plain Paper" whether the output actually is on plain paper or photo paper pro, turns out well.

This problem is not unique to the S9000, as I experienced it identically with the S820 and predictably can occur in any printer with the six cartridge print head.

It is a frustrating problem because you know that the printer is physically capable of printing WITHOUT the hue (as it proves to you each time you choose a "plain paper" paper setting.)

Troubleshooting by reinstalling and updating the printer drivers, and uninstalling/reinstalling the ZoomBrowser EX, replacing the ink cartridges, and deep cleaning are all blind alleys.

A call to Canon support solved the problem for me with this simple and important revelation:

The Plain Paper setting is unique in its use of only 4 of the 6 cartridges. In the Plain Paper setting, only the black, cyan, magenta and yellow cartridges are utilized. The Photo Magenta and Photo Cyan are not utilized. In all higher resolution settings, i.e., in all other settings, all 6 cartridges are utilized.

It follows that if one's problem disappears when not using these two Photo cartridges (i.e., when printing at the Plain Paper setting), then the problem lies with these cartridges.

(In my case, I'd loaded a plain "Cyan" cartridge in the "Photo Cyan" slot during earlier trouble shooting and had forgotten to replace it with the proper Photo Cyan cartridge.)

Problems with magenta hues would admit of the same solution.

Hope that helps anyone else out there tearing out their hair trying to troubleshoot this. "

Problem with color quality - Canon PIXMA iP4000


i had this problem... its the ink! Check you are using magenta and NOT "photo magenta", and also that you are using "cyan" and NOT "PHOTO cyan"... basically photo cyan, photo magenta and photo yellow are not designed for the ip4000, if you check the smallprint on the box it does not list the ip4000.

This exact problem happened to me and it was driving me crazy. I think the "photo" versions of the inks are for printers that take two tanks of each colour, and the photo version is used for very subtle colours... so if you are ONLY using these inks, photos will appear washed out, yellow etc

Misreads ink tanks: says full ones are empty and there are 2 cyans, etc.


I had the same problem -- error message saying two cyan print tanks installed. Nothing helped (including disconnecting power cord). Then found I had an older cyan print tank still in its pack on hand, Installed that. No further problems. Assume this means print tank giving error is part of a faulty batch so am returning to retailer for refund from Canon.
