    I too have this problem. I called Canon, paid the $9.99 for them to tell me to turn the printer off and back on... which of course did not fix it. I have taken all I can apart on the ink carriage looking for those "sponges" ... to no avail :( All I have now are black fingers and an error code grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

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.

Canon pixma mx892 front door flap broke - was printing but now I get lots of clicking noises and then a message telling me to power off. The rear paper tray does work but lots of clicking.


What's the error message? Did it give you an error number?

My first thought: That printer detects if the front door is fully open, and if it's not, it gives you an error message and makes you turn it off and on. So look at the hinges where the door was connected and see if you can see the switch that tells the printer whether the door is open. Then figure out how to move that switch to the "open" position.

I hate that front door.

Copier will not copy feed paper oeven try-justs makes agrinding noise


Dear
Pl. do test as per following.
1- empty paper tray.
2- pull the toner cart. and close the door.
3- power ON the printer. Listen the sound of initial motor run,
(If smooth not grinding noise, check the toner cart OPC drum for jam. If yes check the fusser drive gear and fusser gear and assembly)
If all are ok.
4- Check the paper pick up roller shaft, (sometimes it takes a bunch of paper and jammed if you forcible pull the bunch in reverse direction the shaft may gets bend cause the grinding noise during paper pickup. in that case you have to replace the paper pickup shaft.
Thanks.

There seems to be a grinding noice coming from the bottom of the copier. It will feed paper from either source, the tray or the manual feed, and then the copy gets caught and shuts down the copier and you...


Diagnosing noises over the internet is an impossible task unless it is a known problem on a particular model. usually grind noises are casued by something trying to turn something that wont. It maybe something as simple as a siezed drum. As you have not stated what model of copier you have, i am sorry but i cannot proceed any further.

Fax output error


Pretty sure your paper tray button is set to get paper from the bottom paper cassette which is the tray that slides into the bottom of the printer.

If you switch the paper tray selection button* to use the rear feed tray you'll probably find it will print faxes sucessfully or you can put paper in the cassette tray...



*The paper tray selection button is just under (and slightly right of) the "Memory Card" button and has an icon image of the printer with two LED's (top and bottom). These lights indicate which of the trays is currently selected...


Hope that helps.

Canon PIXMA 530 grinds away


I had a persistant grinding noise about 30 seconds after the printer finished printing. It's been going on about 2 months. I did one thing which seemed to work. So try opening the cover on the back of the machine by lifting upward on the gray lever in the middle of the back of the machine. Leave this cover open during and after printing. The grinding noise went away.

GRINDING NOISE or PAPER JAM


If you are not a technical person best thing to do is to show it to an expert. grinding noise means some part in the machine is running with the friction. and might brake something or scratch something. Find out persons who work on photocopiers in your area either samsung or Xerox. as this model comes with both the companies and Xerox people are generly better than samsung people.

Paper transport does not work; terrible grinding noise


I took mine apart from the back and put it back together and it worked. It is probably due to moving it and the bottom paper tray alignment gets out of whack. I inspected all of the gear train and didn't find any worn or missing teeth. I suspect a paper jam started it and the user turned the printer around to open the back door. Since the handles are on the printer the tray doesn't move with it which allows it to separate and possibly jam a pickup drive gear.
