The error code means AP Position Error .

Manually move the print head left and right, turn the printer on/off. If you still get the same error. Then check for a torn paper lodged inside. Removed it printer will be working .

Hi...there's a couple things you can try:
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.
Double check that your ink tanks are seated right too
As far as the noise goes (and possibly related to the error code) be sure that your scanner is UNLOCKED...
With the machine turned OFF:
Open the document cover, look on the tray where the glass is -- and then look to the LEFT side of the glass and you will see pictures of an opened lock and a closed lock and a little switch...
Make sure the switch is next to the UNLOCKED position.
WAIT 5 seconds or so and then turn the unit back on.

If you STILL have the error code, try these two types of resets:
To clear the memory:

  1. On the operator panel, press and hold the <ON/OFF> button for one second. (The display will go blank.)

  2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the <ON/OFF> button again.

  3. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting another job request.
To do a stop/reset:
To clear error messages displayed on the LCD or if the printer is not functioning as expected, it may be necessary to simultaneously press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF buttons.
  1. With the printer powered on, PRESS AND HOLD DOWN the <Stop/Reset> button then press the ON/OFF button.

  2. Once the printer is powered off, hold down <Stop/Reset> and then press <ON/OFF>.
If none of the above clears it up, you may have to have the machine serviced.. check to see if you are still under warranty...
thank u rate me!!
think it will solve ur problem....

4. Used paper towel and wiped purge unit a lot of times
(press down to soak paper towel with ink). Repeat until the paper towel is relatively clear.

ratio of 1:3 with powder:water) and soaked paper towel

    1. Do a print head cleaning

    2. Print the nozzle check pattern

    3. - repeat steps 1-2 up to two times -

    4. Do a print head Deep Cleaning (Note: the Print Head Deep Cleaning Procedure uses a lot of ink)

    5. Print the nozzle check pattern (This will print a test page using all nozzles in the print head)

    6. - repeat steps 3-4 up to two times -
    The
    printhead can also become clogged or blocked with paper debris or
    solidified ink. If your print quality is poor or your printer will not
    print at all, it may be time to change your printhead.

On printer screen it is showing Error 6A00 and error code. Whats does this mean and how can I fix it


In my IP 3000 during a print suddenly on the 3rd page, a big "crunch" sound. Paper was jammed - error 5100 or smthg, and managed to remove the paper... but then error 6A00 came up. I found this post and was saved. Manually moved the print head left and right, turned the printer on/off. Still the same error. Then I noticed a piece of torn paper lodged inside. Removed that, got inky fingers, and finally got printer in working condition.
Try to clean any foreign object inside.May be it can help you.

Service error 6A00 in my canon ip 5200 printer. what should i do


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.

Error code 5200 means the print head temperature is too high. The only was to resolve this error is either replace the print head or replace the logic board. The print head is available, part number QY6-0061 but you will struggle to find a logic board. The only other thing you can try is resetting the EEPROM on the logic board, this sometimes clears the error. A service manual will show you how to do this: http://www.tradebit.com/filedetail.php/4546483-canon-pixma-mp830-printer-service-manual
