Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer
I have a Canon Pixma ip4200 printer which has worked pretty well up until now. I printed 2 pages off and at the end of the second page a service error code 6000 appeared. I emailed their helpdesk and was told that it is a paper feed error and to send it for service to be repaired. It will cost £59.93, so I might as well buy a new one for that price if I can't do it myself! Does anyone have any idea how to solve this? Many thanks
I have canon pixma ip1200, and I encountered the same problem with yours..SERVICE ERROR 6000, i tried to do a lot of things in my printer, i tried to Turn it on and off but it doesn't fix my problem, then I read that error came from, paper feed and roller..then i tried to pull and roll the soft plastic of the roller at the left side of the printer (if you're facing the printer, make sure the printer is off) then i notice that something's blocking the roller and then i turned the printer on and that's it..it works again, so far i've encountered the problem 2 times and i did the same procedure at the second time i encountered the problem.. I hope this will HELP you..;-)

I can't tell you specifically what you should do to try and repair your printer, but I do have one suggestion, a link to a Service Manual and a probable reason why a service tech wants to charge you so much for a repair. If you look in the service manual, here is what it says regarding error 6000: ------------------------ Line feed error  Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Timing sensor unit (QM2-2683) - Timing slit disk film (QC1-6229) - Feed roller ass'y (QL2-0925) - Platen unit (QM2-2202) - Logic board ass'y (QM2-2670)*1 - PAPER FEED MOTOR (QK1-1502) ------------------------ In other words, somebody looked in the book and quoted you a price to replace all these parts. One very common problem for printers is that the paper feed rollers develop a slick surface and don't grip the way they are supposed to. If you're experiencing a paper-feed problem, you can try buffing the rubber feed rollers lightly with fine sandpaper to help them grip once again like they should. (I've repaired many printers doing nothing more than this.) Below is a link to the Service Manual for your printer. Hope this helps. http://noel.bouvet.free.fr/ip4200/Canon%2520Servicemanual_ip4200.pdf
