The error code 6500 indicates that an internal error has occurred which may be resolved by resetting the printer.
What to Do. Turn off printer and unplug it. Plug in the printer again and turn it back on. If this does not solve the problem, service is required.
If your printer`s status displays “Printer in error state,” there may be a problem with the printer itself. Make sure the printer is turned on and connected to your PC by Wi-Fi or cable. Check it for low paper or ink, and be sure the cover isn`t open and the paper isn`t jammed.
An error 6500 “on” the printer (as contrasted to errors displayed on your computer) probably indicates a fairly terminal condition. I have not seen reports of this error on a Pixma iP6600D, but when this code is displayed on other Canon printers, it indicates a fault in the printer`s circuit board.
According to Canon, Error 06 indicates a fault of the sensor cleaning module.
An E5 or E6 error occurs when the scanner or printer is in an error state. Reset the printer. With the printer on, disconnect the power cord from the printer. Unplug the power cord from the power source.
1. Paper Jams. Paper jams are a common problem for printers, resulting in time-consuming and frustrating delays. It can occur when loose sheets of paper get stuck in the rollers or feeding mechanism of the printer.
E, 0, 8 E08 Ink absorber is almost full. The ink absorber collects excess ink after head cleaning or during printing. Ink usually goes into a bottle which eventually becomes full. There is a risk that ink can begin to spill.
Description. Support code 6800 generally indicates a failure with the logic board on your printer.
The 1688 support code signifies that the printer has detected that one or more of your ink cartridges is empty.
To clear the error manually push the UP, DOWN and PUMP buttons simultaneously, ensure the display clears before showing the temperature or error code again. If the display does not clear the reset was not executed correctly.
The Error Code 6 means that there was an issue communicating with the Google Play app on the phone (various possible reasons). 1) Reboot the device and try the purchase again.
There are several reasons for Error 6000 to appear, including a paper jam, an improperly seated ink tank, and more. Paper is jammed or there is an object inside the printer. The printer needs to be reset.
If you experience 6901 or 6910 error on your printer, turn it off and plug it directly into a known working outlet. Also, disabling IPv6 may help to resolve this issue. Follow the procedure below to disable IPv6: Temporarily turn off the power of all other devices on the network, including the router.
