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

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.

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.

SOURCE: Service Error 6A80

That error says there is something jammed in either the purge assembly or the sheet feeder on the back not able to turn. The purge assembly is on the right where the printhead parks for cleaning.

That error says there might be paper scraps stopping the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, or something fallen into the slot where paper goes stopping the paper feed assembly. You just have to inspect closely with a flashlight before taking to the shop.

My cannon printer MX700 just now paper have jam inside. After i taken out of paper that jam inside my cannon printer have a error of 6A80 and it can't fixed. Pls help. Thanks.


The 6A80 indicates that the mechanism called the `purge unit' does not work correctly. In some cases after a paper jam, some paper gets in the unit. Try this:
Turn on the unit and open the cover. Hopefully, the printhead will come to the center. If it doesn't, unplug the printer and try to move the printhead by hand, to the left. Do not force it. If you are able, get a flashlight and inspect the area inside the unit to the right. There may be bits of paper in that area. Being careful, remove it with a tweezers or some such tool.
If you cannot see anything, then the machine will need to be dismantled for service. I recommend authorized service.

Solution #1: Press ON/OFF switch to reset the multifunction device


Reset the device when it is not functioning properly.

If the device is not functioning properly or to clear memory, reset it.


1. On the operator panel, press and hold the button for one second. (The display will go blank.)


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


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


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

My wife printed 3 pictures and then printer gave her a error code 6A80. I checked on error code and it said possible paper jam. I then looked inside the printed from the back to front and seen nothing....


This is sort of scenario could be caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.
