Typically the 0x6********* errors point to a carriage jam on the printer.  I'll need to know the exact model of the 6500 series of printer that you have to point you to the right steps to clear up this problem.  Do you have the E709a, E709n, E710a, or E710n model of the 6500 series?

i have a E709n with the above printer error.  I tried removing the cartridges and unplugging etc as per the troubleshooting information on the website - error message still comes up.

I would recommend a partial or semi-full reset on the printer. However I cannot post these steps in the forum as it is against HP policy. 

 

If you would like, I could private message you the steps or you could private message me and I will send them to you.

 

Best of luck,

Kyle
