Question about Canon Pixma MP800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I paid for the premium Fixya plan for theM P 800 canon

With the canon service sheets now in my hard drive,I have tried the various on off reset button combinations to no avail.
The sheet lists the 6A00 error as being --error in A P motor--fixed sheet feed unit--logic board assy.--or purge unit.
How can I isolate each one of these and test its function please?

Hi
Try it
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.

1 Answer

Absober is full


The canon printer needs to be serviced by the service center for canon.

Try calling 1-800-OK CANON to schedule service, or go to the following site:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_ip_series/pixma_ip1800#ServiceAndSupport

Ink Absorber Replacement Options This printer has an ink absorber that takes in ink during the printing and print head cleaning processes. The cleaning process is necessary in order to keep the print head nozzles from becoming clogged. Over the life of the printer, the amount of ink that the ink absorber has absorbed is calculated by the printer. Eventually, after substantial use, the printer will enter an error condition when the ink absorber is nearly full. At this point, printing is still possible by pressing the button on the printer. To protect the printer from damage, you will not be able to print at all once the ink absorber is full.
Canon recommends having the printer serviced before the absorber becomes full. We are aware that there are many "do-it-yourself" Web sites that offer instructions for making this repair. Replacing the ink absorber is a complicated and potentially messy procedure. Even if the ink absorber is successfully changed, the ink absorber counter must be reset. Be aware that if you attempt this procedure, it is at your own risk.

So many suggestions to 6C10, but this is a manufacturer defect. Where can I write to CANON?


Try this:If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.
  1. On the operator panel, press the <ON> button. (The display will go blank.)

    Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON button does not shut off the printer.

  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON> button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
