SOURCE: Canon Pixma 210 series has an error code 6000, won't print or scan

Hope this helps
With thanks to a canon tech 
Ok Well again I will repeat this answer with a titch more detail.
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. As a Canon tech, 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. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. 
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

SOURCE: Canon Pixma MX850 won't scan - says 'set the pc to start scan'

Do you have more than one PC connected to the scanner? I have both a PC and a Mac connected to it, and I think my scanner is trying to connect to the Mac, which requires image capture software to be installed, rather than the PC. Don't know how to tell it to go to the PC, though...

SOURCE: mx canon mx320 wont scan,

You go on your computer open the start menu and go to devices and printers. Click on it. Click on your Canon Mx320 icon. Then it will say scanner management and you click on Scan Photos or Documents. The printer is just waiting for you to do it from the computer. From there you can preview the scanned photo or documented.<br /> <br /> Press "OK" in the printer as well.

Npinter is probelems 5b00 how to solft probelems


Hi
Not perhaps as helpful as we would both prefer but all the manual (which can be found here:-
Canon PIXMA MX410
and downloaded and installed to your computer) says about this 5b00 error is:- "The machine error has occurred. Contact the service center."
A slightly better idea is on the Canon site here

Good Luck

You will have a utility on your PC Named "Windows Fax and Scan" this is in my opinion the easiest and most accessible utility to use.
