Welcome to JustAnswer !! I am Andy and I will be glad to help you out with your issue today.

6500 is a PCI bus error. This means that the PCB (circuit board) in the printer is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.

If in warranty, send it to Canon for free repair. Else Canon will charge you for the repair and in that case it would be cheaper to buy a new printer.

I am sorry about that, but now days all such inkjet printers are kind of use and throw types. If not in warranty, in almost all the cases its cheaper to buy a new one.
