Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies
My grandparents have had a Canon PIXMA MP500 printer (that previously worked just fine) and I just installed it onto their new (to them) computer but error code 6502 comes up on the display every time that I turn it on. I know that they have replaced the ink cartridges and i have looked at every question that has to do with this on this website but nothing is working. Does anyone know what this error code means and how to fix it?
What is the brand name and model of your printer? Make sure that your ink cartridges are precisely the correct cartridges for the brand and model that you are using. From what I have experienced ... if you try to use a used ink cartridge you will recieve an error.

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.

6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.
