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 message on Canon PIXMA MP830 says 6A00. What does it mean


6A00 means the purge assembly is jammed. The purge assy. is the cleaning station where the printhead parks. If your printhead is stuck on the right you'll need service, otherwise a wet Q-tip can clean the area and the slides on the side for it's squeegee. I usually just replace the purge assembly, around $29.00

I have a new canon MX850 all in one printer. Only had it a month and an error code 6A00 has come up on the LCD screen.


Error code 6A00 indicates purging operation error. Please observe purge unit first, it's located in right inside the printer. Is there broken paper disturb its function?. If there is no another material out there,means purge unit is faulty and you need to bring you printer to nearest service center.

Canon pixma mp800 error code 6A00


6A00 means you need a new purge assembly. That's the unit that cleans the printhead. Part number is QM2-3032-000 around $30.00 but a shop should install it.

Check printer and 6A00 flashing


6A00 indicates that "an error occurred in the AP motor
during purging operation". This is a service call error and requires that the printer be brought into a canon authorized service facility for repair. The service facility would be able to fully diagnose the problem and properly repair it.
