I had the same problem. Solution? I will sound stupid, but it worked for me. Check every phone cable. Unplug and replug it. I solved my problem by making my connections simpler. I think, one of my splitter was faulty.

I still not understand why. I tried to fax without any phones plug-on and it was not working neither.

I'm with "videotron.ca" for my phone line and I unplugged the line from the modem too, then replug it. Maybe it was just that!

A lot of people seem to have this problem. I called Canon twice and they made me change some setting in my printer but their solutions was not working. I put all the setting back to what they was and it still working now.

It is because of Purge unit can be damaged or stuck. Probably you have to pulled apart the printer and check the purge unit.

Error 6A80 indicates that "an error occurred in the APP motor
during purging operation". Either the sheet feed unit, purge unit, or logic board could be at fault.

I'd recommend bringing the unit into your local canon authorized service facility for complete diagnostic and repair.

Supply Guy,
Here is the solution.
I am going to describe 4 buttons on your printer. Then, I will tell you what to do with these buttons to resolve this error.
1. Look for the Black & White selection button (large white button w/ black diamond on it).
2. Look for small pink button (bottom left corner of your printer control panel).
3. Look for the OK button (big button in middle).
4. Look for the On/Off button (top left).

OK - here we go. With the printer turned off, do this:
1. Using four fingers, one on each of the four buttons, press them all and hold them down for 10 seconds.
2. Release the On/Off button - but keep holding the other 3.
3. After a few more seconds the printer will turn on. When it does this, you can release the other three buttons.

So, to summarize, you press all 4 buttons for 10 seconds, release the power button and wait for the printer to turn on. After it is on, let go the other 3.

Your error message should go away. If you don't hold the buttons all down simultaneously, the printer could go into Fax mode; just turn it off and try again.

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

Error message 6a80 mx700 printer canon what is this?


Hello

Ok, the error code you are getting refers to a paper jam, which the paper is usually torn from the big piece and stuck, you need to have a good lok to find it.
Most probably the paper was ripped inside, and one piece is stuck somewhere on a sensor. Usualy is the purge unit that clean up the print head, and it's located inside on the right side (printhead parking place).

Take a torch, lift up the scanner unit, with the unit ON, wait for the print head to come in the middle, move it to left to make more room, and check the right side, inside the unit.

Kind regards
Andrea

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.Check the sheet feeder.If this not help your printer need service.

Error 6a80


Error 6A80

I had this error and a Canon engineer showed me how to deal with this.

Basically there is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit".

(a) Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
(b) Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
(c) Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
(d) underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
(e) push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
(f) power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)

Hopefully error should go after you attempt this a few times!
