Error 6A00 in Canon MP810

Hello, I got a clarification request. I have my printer with that error, but seems that the problem is in those ink absorber cushions. I opened my printer to get to the place but now i dont know what to do with it. I took out the cushion and now i am not sure what to check. Do yo have any suggestions?

    here is a video.

    i just forgot to say that there are two cushions, i still have not found the smaller rectangular one, but it seems that for the moment that is not the problem.

    at the end of the video u can see a white part moves to the opposite side. then u hear a noise like little engine is being forced, and then the error appears.

    i think this cushion should also move , no? now it does not move at all.

    it means that i broke it for good ?

    thank you.

    this is a video.

    at the end of the video you can see that a white part moves all the way, then you hear a noise like a little motor forcing, then error occurs.

    this cushions are down, at first they were not so down, and now they dont move anymore, i pressed them down and now they dont come up, which i suppose they should move up or something.

    the rectangular cushion i still dont find it, but i think that is not the problem for now.

    any suggestions, please,

    thank you.

    well thankx for the help. i turned the gears. at first even when i turned the gear, the cushions did not come uo and the purge unit (i think the white plastic part) did not go back and forth. so i decided not to turn carfefullr the gear and started to desperately make it turn back and forth until the cushions came up. i still dont know where one of the cushions is, i guess is somewhere in there but if i tried to dismantle it even more, i m not sure i can put it back together.

    i turned on the printer and seems that everytime is a different error, (now purge unit moves ok), first time came up the error code 5110, next time, was error code 6502, i ll turn it off and on to see what error i have. (i m using re-filled tanks), maybe that can be a problem now.

    hey stellatorty,

    I did what you said and until now is working!, Althought I feel that I really did not fix it, because I just moved things around hopping that the object jamming it go somewhere else. The small cushion is still lost, but in the meantime is ok, thanks for the help.!

What colour is this cushion? You should not be able to access them without major dismantling of the printer. If it IS an ink absorber it will be white (other than where ink is)

    At the front right of the purge unit which is the unit with the cushion, you will see some white gears. Carefully with a small flatblade screwdriver you can turn these gears and the slide should operate and the cushion should lift. If it does not there may be something underneath jamming it.

How do I remove the print head from my Canon MP810 printer for a clean? :o)

I just replaced my MP810 printer head. Procedure: open printer - remove ink cartridges - Pick up arm located on right side of cartridge holder- remove printer head by picking up by the cartridge slots. Place new printer head in holder - replace printer cartridges - press arm down and your done....However, the error message stays on and reset procedure doesn't remove it. Canon tech support said their solution (because of distance from canon support) is to replace MP810 with comparable printer, which came to $299 with 15% discount and free shipping. My solution, I’m checking out other printers.

Error Code 6A00 is appearing and does not change no matter what I do (shut down, change ink cartridges, restart, etc). Any ideas? Thanks

6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is jammed and cannot move. If nothing is caught in it you will need to have it replaced. The part is around $30.00

Canon MP810 Error Code 6A00

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.

Mp810 printer

That error code refers to the AP position during the purge operation., basically is means there is an error in the purge unit of the printer, either the purge unit is out of position or there was a power issue while the printer was shutting down. So it could be as simple as removing any foreign object in purge unit or it could be the sheet feed unit, the logic board or the purge unit.
I hope this helps you to understand what the printer needs. Good Luck with it.

Cannon MP810 when turn on display error A600. There is also no light displaying on the printing cartridge.

A600 or 6A00. If 6A00 then the fault code is for the AP motor position error. Error lies with the sheet feed unit, Purge unit or Logic board.
