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.


All I ask is 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.

My MP830 has showing error 6A00?


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. 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.

Part number QM2-3032-000 around $30.00. It's the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks when shut down.

Erro 6A00


Hi,
The 6A00 is a Canon code for paper path jam. In the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 .
The purge unit is stuck and not able to move freely .Move the purge unit back and forth for around 10 times and then restart printer ,it should work fine .
If you still get the error code then purge unit needs replacement.

Hope this helps .

Error Code 6A00 is appearing and does not change no matter what I do (shut down, change ink cartridges, restart, etc). Any ideas? Thanks


6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, is jammed and cannot move. If nothing is caught in it you will need to have it replaced. The part is around $30.00

6A00 error


The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....

apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.

hope this helps

Error Codes 6A00 and 5C10


I tried everything suggested on other posts (cleaning paper feeds and making sure rollers were free, moving carriage back and forth manually, etc)., but nothing worked. With it still plugged in, I turned the whole thing upside down and shook it. It hummed and buzzed, and moved the carriage a couple of times. Viola, problem solved. Go figure.
