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.

6A80 error is an APP position error. It means that an error has occured when the motor was runnin during the purging operation on startup.

Canon specifies that on of three parts of the printer might be faulty to create this error. The sheet feeder, purge unit or logic board. This is a link to the official service manual:

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 6A80


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.

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!!
