HI Guys 6A00 error usually cant't be fixed according to the service centre, I was lucky and actually bought an extended warranty, the service centre said that the MP530 are a good printer and worth fixing as they don't see many at all compared to other models and other brands. There was a broken piece of hardware that something to do with the print carriage. cheers vailey

Try deep cleaning the black cartridge in the Maintenance section of the printers properties. Print head might be clogged cli-8m

If the line is on the back of the paper then you have a dirty paper pushing roller - you will need to dismantle the printer partially for a thorough cleaning.
If the line is on the printed side and it's there only when you scan or copy a file then the scan unit sensor is faulty. The only way to fix that is to replace the sensor and that would cost more than a new printer.
If the line is on the printed side and is there whatever the source of the printed file it means that the memory buffer from the processor of the printer has a faulty cell. There is nothing that can be done to fix that - the processor, and the entire printer with it, is dead.
Sorry, time for a new one.

This is always the problem on Canon PIXMA MP Printer models. Its internal panel board inside is so sensitive to colors. What you will do is go to your printer and there you will find out its properties and or maintenance to solve the problems on ink. Just try to clean up your printer using the maintenance part of your printer. Keep trying to do this until the color becomes satisfied to your looks. Good luck!

Ink absorber (waste ink pads) is a sponge pad that is located under the chamber where you insert the cartridges. You can locate the waste ink pads to the right of the cartridges. Open the cover, move the cartridges to the centre, and then press the pad of absorbent paper towel onto the waste ink pads. This will absorb a lot of ink in the pads and that will remove the warning after you reset the printer waste ink tank counter. Another thing you can do is to completely replace the waste ink pads or maybe take a hot water towel and clean it till the time you see no ink residue on the towel & then let it dry out. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The error code of 6500 is a PCI bus error and this is a Service Error Code. Typically this is an internal error of one of the ASIC chips on the logic board and can only be repaired by replacing the logic board at the Canon Service Center.

It sounds like you may have a print job stuck in the printer queue. This will happen from time to time. So we need to clear the memory on the system.

To do this unplug all connection from the printer this include the power cord. Next hold down the power button for about 45 seconds. This will make sure that all the power is cleared from the system. Next reconnect the printer to see if you still have trouble.

If you still have trouble check all computer that you own and make sure there is not any print jobs in the print queue. If you still have trouble and/or need help checking the print queue let me know the make and model of your computer, as well as the operating system you have as this could be a configuration issue.

Always check the USB and Power Cables first. If that isn't the problem uninstall and reinstall the printer on the computers.

these machines only have one sensor that gives the paper jam message, and its not uncommon for a foreign object to find it way inside and hold the little black lever open and give you a false paper jam message.
so first remove all paper from both the cassette and rear feed, then use a torch/flashlight to look inside, you might need to open the rear door and look in there as well.

If the lights are flashing fast this indicate they are empty and the printer will not work proper until replacing ..Even if the black it is just changed..it might not work if the others are flashing quick indicating cartridge empty for good..They do start to flash when it is almost empty (but the flashing are rare ..and is just an warning to change them ) ..in this case it might work to print black ..but if they are already empty ...it might display an error and do not let you print until replace them ..
In this case you may still try to make a printing in black ..but you have to reset the printer first ..
Unplug power and USB cable.
Open door and hold power button.
Connect power.
Close door, then release power button.
here is the manual in case you need it ..
