    After a paper jam on MP830, error code 6502 appeared. Switching off and on inneffective - and error appears before any opportunity to clean heads. Disconnecting and reconnecting power ineffective. Canon site won't reveal any error codes, but suggests leaving turned off for 10 minutes. Did that and - Hey Presto! .....That didn't fix it either! Anyone know of a table of error codes for this thing?

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!

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.
