Canon IP5200R printer. Green & red led`s flash 20 times, pause & repeat. print head will not come out of park position on righthand side. Fault occurred while printing a photo error 6500 displayed

    I tried the reset before I contacted fixya. The next suggestion in the service manual was the logic board but this is not guaranteed to fix the problem as far as I can see. As this will be an expensive item I don`t think it will be worth trying although I like the printer & there is no similar replacement. I have stripped the unit with difficulty as there doesn`t seem to be any good instructions on the web. The one fault I have found is that the surplus ink tube was blocked. I doubt this will cure the problem but have yet to re-assemble the chassis into the case. Have you any tips for this?

    How much is a logic board, will this definately fix the problem or would i be better replacing it? I do like this printer & would like to keep it.

Hello!

Error 6500 or green and red flashes 20 times, mean hardware error. Particularly, the Logic Board Assembly

There are two possible fix: first is to reset the printer's waste ink counter and the second is to replace the Logic Board Assembly (part # QM2-2733)

Reset the Waste Ink Counter:
1) With the printer power turned off, while pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press and hold the
Power button. (DO NOT release the buttons. The Power LED lights in green to indicate that a
function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (DO NOT release the Power
button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button 2 times, and then release both the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)
4) When the Power LED lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button 4 times (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the Alarm and Power LEDs light alternately, Alarm in orange and Power in green, starting with Alarm LED.)

How do I change the print cartridges?


  • Open the printer cover and prop it up with the support brace located on the right-hand side of the cover.
  • Remove the black FINE ink cartridge from its container and locate the protective tape. Gently remove the protective tape used to cover the print head nozzles and electrical contacts.
  • Insert the black FINE ink cartridge into the printer slot labeled "B." It will rest on a slight angle. Push the cartridge up and back until it clicks into place.
  • Repeat the process for the color FINE ink cartridge, placing it in the slot labeled "C."
  • Raise the printer cover slightly to loosen the support brace. Fold the brace inward and replace the cover to its closed position.
  • A green LED light will flash on top of the printer. In about a minute, the LED stops flashing and displays "1." Once the "1" appears, you're ready to print.

    Canon i550 LED error sequence: 7 orange +1 green flash


    According to Canon 7 orange flashes indicates a print head fault. Solution they recommend is to take it to one of their service agents. Problem is that replacement print heads are not cheap and it is usually more economical to replace the printer. You could try taking the print head to a cartridge refiller and have it professionally cleaned (cost you nothing or next to nothing) and see if that solves the problem.

    Canon Pixma 210 series has an error code 6000, won't print or scan


    Hope this helps
    With thanks to a canon tech 
    Ok Well again I will repeat this answer with a titch more detail.
    The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. 
    Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
    I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

    Procedure to reset Printer canon MP145 and Canon MP160 with Error Code Message for Printer Canon MP145 and Canon MP160, you can find error code message the end of this post:
