Question about Canon PIXMA MP620 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Just installed new Canon PIXMA MP620. When asked to turn "on" button on, I get error message 6A80, "printer error as occured. Turn off power then back on again. If problem persists, see the manual" The manual does not address this problem. Live Tech support in closed on the weekend. I have turn the machine off and on several time with the same message appearing. HELP!
SOURCE: I have a canon mp620
(a) Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
(b) Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
(c) Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
(d) underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
(e) push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
(f) power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)

6A80 can be either a sheet feeder error or a purge unit error, either can be caused by paper scraps or other debris caught inside. You need to inspect closely with a flashlight and remove any scraps, beyond that you may need a shop to take apart and replace gears or even a purge assembly.

I had this problem with the ink carriage jammed at the left hand side of the printer. I operated the lever in a hole on the top left hand side and eased the carriage along to the middle and pushed it back onto it's runners. All OK now.

SOURCE: Message error 6A80
6A80 error is an APP position error caused by the APP motor during the purging operation as the printer starts up. Canon states that one of three components is likely to have failed, the sheet feed unit, purge unit or logic board. All of these will be almost impossible to get as a spare part. The only thing worth trying is an EEPROM reset that can be done using the service manual. Get a copy here: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4981053-canon-pixma-mp520-printer-service-manual
