Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Error code 6A00

My printer misfed a piece of paper - so it was tattered after coming through. It now no longer prints anything and only alarms with the error code 6A00. I can't copy or print. I pulled a small shred of paper out of the feeder but did not help.

It looks like it's a mechanical jam problem. If it is still under warranty, then I suggest you call canon and arrange with them to get it fixed or replaced ASAP.

Alarm blinking, I restrated printer, replaced ink jet and cleared printing queue but still error code comes up and won't work . error 6A00.


6A00 is AP position error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output)
is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
