Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

6A00 code with Alarm light

The printer was working fine. Than all of sudden one sheet of paper partially printed with a corner of the sheet torn off. After searching for a while found the piece of paper near the printer heads. I notice when you turn the on and off button the catridge heads do not move or reset. The code will not change nor will the printer do anything. Help!

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

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

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.
