This is a "device Jam" code. sometimes the ink on the printhead dries and causes it to stick. try moving the printhead manually (power off). also if you can reach it, try sopping up the excess ink in the well (use a damp cloth, and wear gloves its nasty). also siome tiny peieces of paper can cause this too.

I have a canon mp830 error code 6a00.


That error means the purge assembly is jammed. Check for paper caught in the right side where the printhead parks, if all clear you will need a new purge assembly. A shop repair for sure....

On printer screen it is showing Error 6A00 and error code. Whats does this mean and how can I fix it


In my IP 3000 during a print suddenly on the 3rd page, a big "crunch" sound. Paper was jammed - error 5100 or smthg, and managed to remove the paper... but then error 6A00 came up. I found this post and was saved. Manually moved the print head left and right, turned the printer on/off. Still the same error. Then I noticed a piece of torn paper lodged inside. Removed that, got inky fingers, and finally got printer in working condition.
Try to clean any foreign object inside.May be it can help you.

Error Code 6A00


6A00 is a purge unit fault, if you have have a years canon warrenty i would call them and get a engineer out to investergate the fault, If not strip machine and and see if the purge unit is moving back and forward. it could be that the carriage unit is stuck on the purge and the carriage unit cant move.

Hope this helps

I have a canon mp830. I had the 6A00 error code.


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.

6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.

There is a flaky sensor .

Check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper.
