    I have a canon pixma iP4600 and the "service error 6A80" came up the second time I tried to use the printer. Tried switching on and off, switching PC off etc but no luck.

    I have a Canon Pixma MX700 and an error message is coming up 6A80. I looked at print head containing ink tanks. It is not moving from the left to the middle when you open it. Still stuck. I believe that it causes the error 6A80. We need to contact Canon Representatives. Is another way to fix it?

    Just received my new Canon PIXMA MP620.  When asked to push on button I get same message/error code: 6A80 "Printer error has occured.  turn off printer then back on again.  If problem persists. see the manual"  The manual does not address this problem.  Can you help?

    I bought the Canon mp620 a few weeks ago. Last night after printing 3 sheets of paper, I noticed the yellow light flashing. The error code was this 6A80. I was instructed to turn off the power and then turn it back on again. This did not work.

    I went to Canon's support site and it says for this error, I need to have the unit repaired. Is there a user serviceable way to fix this?

Put the colors out of the printer and do it on and off a few times and put the colors back in and a few times on and off again, that was working on my 6a80 problem.

Greetings Pieter.

My Canon MP520 has a 6A80 error and now the printer head is also stuck on the far right side.


6A80 error is an APP position error caused by the APP motor during the purging operation as the printer starts up. Canon states that one of three components is likely to have failed, the sheet feed unit, purge unit or logic board. All of these will be almost impossible to get as a spare part. The only thing worth trying is an EEPROM reset that can be done using the service manual. Get a copy here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4981053-canon-pixma-mp520-printer-service-manual

Canon MP520 Error 6A80 has occurred -


Hi @ all,

i got the same problem. I did some google search and found the tip below:

  1. Start with printer off
  2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click “Power” button. green led should be on
  3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.
  4. Without releasing the Power Button, click “Resume” button for two times and release Both Buttons.
  5. Click “Resume” for four times then soon click “Power” button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
  6. Turn off the printer and turn on again
But doing this another menue appeared and i pressed okay and swithched the printer off. I did 3 times and finally the error disappeared. Now i am really happy because my printer is still working. Hope it will help you to fix your problems with this error.

Error cannon pixma mp520


Turned it on, off many times as instructions suggest,
etc no dice. Reinstalled software, did everything including giving it a few taps.I was very seriously ready to buy a new one and trash this one, even checking flyers. I read where so my are having this same problem.
In my anger I started pushing all the buttons randomly and suddenly the green light stayed on.
Voila the crazy thing works fine again. Must have reset the glych somehow ?(I have no idea how)
Give it a try before giving up, who knows!!

Cannon PIXMA MP520 Problem: Error code


I had this problem with the ink carriage jammed at the left hand side of the printer. I operated the lever in a hole on the top left hand side and eased the carriage along to the middle and pushed it back onto it's runners. All OK now.
