Canon MP 830 Error 6a00

I've tried everything listed in the maual and on the forums including turning it upside down as my last resort. Any other ideas, other than don't buy Canon home printers (I've already come to that conclusion after one warranty return in year 1 and this problem in year 2)?

Thanks,

Jim

Thats because 6a00 is a service error not a user error, 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, who ever told you to turn it upside down is having a joke., that will never work. Some times it could be gearing on the back on the purge.

I would ask for a service engineering, depending where you live i have a few contacts. Mp830 is a very good product and you shouldnt have alot of problems.

I have a Cannon MP830 printer, that is displaying a 6A00 error on LCD, and the orange alarm light is flashing. Also the ON switch is not working, I have to unplug it to turn off the power. Checked under the hood, it appears that the purge thingy.. is not sliding at all. With the power turned off, I can easily push it from side to side. No paper jam or anything blocking that I can see. Any ideas on how to fix, or what is wrong. It was working fine this morning. This occured trying to send a fax. Hope you can help. cheers

Canon MP 830 showing error code 6A00. alarm light flashing, no lights on ink cartridges.


6A00 is AP position error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

MP 830 flashes between the copy button and hazard light(triangle symbol with squiggle in it)12 x.then starts the same 12x after a short pause.It will not do anything..whats the problem?


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.

My canon mp 830 all-in-one printer says 6A00,


no need to reset your printer, the things your should do is you just open the over at the back of your printer, then you can see a paper hang on, then please remove it, then try to print, if it does not work open also the tray which is your bond paper stored, just see if there is also a bond paper hang, then remove it, then print again, that the cause of paper jam 


 Good Luck!!
 Nice

6A00 error


The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....

apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.

hope this helps
