Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Have a Canon MP830. in the middle of printing, it came up with error code 6A00, and now all it does is flash the alarm light and copy light. how to fix?


http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp830#BrochuresAndManuals

I would download the manual for windows 7 and see if the 'alarm and copy light flash' error is listed. I could not find it referred to in the support area of the canonusa.com website. Also, you could call 1-800-OK CANON and talk to a rep. about this problem.

Good luck on this repair.

I have a Canon MP830. I am getting an error message 6A00 with a blinking alarm light. Cannot use copy or scan funcitons. Eric


Hello

Error 6A00 is a sevice error related to your device, not a user error. This a very good device and should not give you much trouble.

It could be down to use of none canon inks glogging the ourge unit up after time, it could be due to paper or objects in the purge, i would take the covers and inspect the purge and make sure that it moves back and foward. Make sure that the printer is clean on the inside and everything that should be able to
move, can move freely. It is usually a clogging of ink which causes this problem. Hope this can help you.

Best regards
Andrea
