Hi
All the best
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.

SOURCE: Canon iP6700D error 6A00

6A00 is a purge assembly error, thats the cleaning unit on the right where the printhead parks. Look on the right with a flashlight and see if there's paper, or anything that doesn't belong. If the wipers are jammed into the pad assembly, you will need a new purge unit, best changed by a shop.

Code 6A00 is comming up whenever I try to print. kindly advise me how to solve


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.As a Canon technology,I usually find the code almost 90% of the time it is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.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 etc.
I have found all those things in a purge unit.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.A
Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model & its always a paper path error or purge unit
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit,called a spittoon assembly in an HP,lexmark & other ink jet printers,is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.That is why you 'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow

I turned my printer on and it read a code: 6A00. Canon 1p6700d


it's a mechanism jam often caused by the print head sponge/cleaner.
You can sometimes move the cartridge cradle away from the parked position and get into the sponge/wiper and just clean it with warm water.
It seems to happen if the printer hasn't been used for a couple of months and things start to dry out.

Error code 6A00 comes up on the Canon Pixma iP6700D. We have moved the carriage manually, it doesn't move when the printer starts. Thank you. Kilian Kuntz


That error code tells you that the purge assembly is stuck. If the carriage is locked on the right you will need a shop to open it up and release it. If it's not a paper scrap or something stopping it, you will need a new purge assembly. Around $30.00 to replace.
