Re: Error Code 6B00

Canon MP600 6B00 Error Code: I started off removing the ink tank holder (held in place by the grey lever) and cleaning it with an alcohol solution and paper towel.  When the ink tanks are not in use they slide to the right side and rest on a pad that collects excess ink.  Mine was loaded up and gel like so I cleaned it as well.  WITH THE INK TANKS REMOVED I placed my MP600 upside down on the table with a towel underneath to protect the lid. I then gave it a few good hits on either side of the lower paper tray.  WORKED FOR ME!

Unbelieveable, It does work! Forget about paying to get fixed or about buying another printer. Try this first, and please, thank the guy who posted this fix, he is saving us at least $200 bucks.

Canon mp600 printer repeated error code 6B00

After reading through earlier problem fixes, I inserted a piece of Card right through the feed system then taped all the covers and loose paper feed trays closed with masking tape. Picked the whole unit up, turned it upside down and shook it up and down and side to side quite hard. Put it back in place on the desk, undid all the tape and plugged both cable back in and switched it on. It went through a long startup process, spat out the card sheet and has worked OK since then (about 15 sheets printed).
Thanks for all the ideas in earlier fixes.

Error code 6B00

6B00 is a paper feed position error, the paper feed is not returning to the home position, or the encoder wheel was damaged. You can try to manually turn that large roller, and then power up again, but if it doesn't help you'll need a shop repair.
