By the way , your user guide stinks as well. And if I don't get an appropriate answer soon, I will go back to the site I purchased it from and post as much bad advertising that I can.

6A00] or Light blinking 12 times = AP position error. It's mean there is an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You may need to replace Sheet feed unit, logic board or purge unit. Thank you

Error code 6A00 comes up. Data line and power cord


That error means the purge assembly is not working properly. Could be a scrap of paper stopping it from cycling properly. The purge unit is the cleaning assembly where the printhead parks, it has caps that draw ink from the printhead to clean and a squeegee to wipe off the excess ink. If the printhead comes to the center, unplug printer and check on the right. If nothing there you probably need a shop repair.

My printer is giving me an error code - 6A00. Can you tell me what this means?


6A00 is mainly a problem with the sheet feed unit.

but Probale causes can be 
1.PR Lift shaft assembly 
2.Sheet Feed Unit 
3.Logic Board

solution :Switched it off, opened the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left.used a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored.Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

Voila, problem solved!

Error code 6a00


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.

Getting error code 6A00-Canon PIXMA MX850 all-in-one printer


The error indicates that the slide the cartridges run on has debris buildup or a component of the printer is blocking the cartridges ability to slide.

Steps to fix...
1. Unplug printer from power source
2. Slide the cartridges to the middle and inspect the slide for a buildup of "gunk" or pieces of debris. Remove what you see and clean the slide with a lint free rag and isopropyl alcohol
3. Look for any part of the printer that may have become dislodged or moved from vibaration and use and try to put it back in to place.
4. Get some "canned air" at any computer or office supply store and blow the printer out thoroughly.
Plug the printer back in and it should work again.
