Question about Canon PIXMA MX850 multifunction InkJet Printer

Canon Pixma MX850 says it's out of paper when there is paper

On my Canon Pixma MX850, it printed a couple of pages and then said there was no paper. There was plenty of paper. It said if that was the case, to press the feed switch. I did that and nothing happens. The switch appears to be a dud. Turning off the machine, restarting, etc. does nothing. I can't print anything because no matter how much paper there is in the machine, it says there's no paper. Frankly, I've found this machine in general to be a huge disappointment. I would not recommend it to anyone.

The feed switch changes the paper feed from rear feed to tray feed (paper tray is under the output bin). If you have paper in the rear feed, the green light should be on top of the printer icon left of the feed switch. If you have paper in the tray, the light should be on the bottom of the printer icon.

Canon mx850 Error code 6A00


Hello thank you for using FixYa.

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.As a Canon technology,I usually find the code almost 90% of the time it is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.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 etc.
I have found all those things in a purge unit.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.A
Canon Pixma MX850 Printer would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model & its always a paper path error or purge unit
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit,called a spittoon assembly,where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.That is why you will find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow

I have a Canon MX850 and when I print something landscape there is a line down one side of the page....how can I fix this. The line is in the actual image.


Does the line actually look like many little dots? If this is what I think it might be, then it is just the way it is. The machine has little spiked wheels in the paper path to reduce the amount of contact it has with the media, these spiked wheels can get dirty and start having ink stick to them and cause lines. See if you can see the wheels from where the paper comes out and try cleaning them with water dampened Q-tips.

I can't figure out how to get my Canon PIXMA MX 850 printer to print the last page first and the first page last so that the pages are in order.


In the printing Preferences dialog box, go to the Page Setup tab, and near the bottom you will see an option "Print from Last Page". Put a check mark in this box.

Canon MX850 - paper feed


Look carefully because it is a cassette on the bottom of your canon mx850... so the solution is: or you fill that cassette or you switch your canon (it is a button for that) to take the paper from the top...

Pixma MX850


I was working on the Pixma mx850 for 3 weeks now. I have found that you need to reset the using back to factory default. On the display look for the "printer head" cleaning and alignment. Go through the steps that it gives you for printer head cleaning. Print a test page. have you tried to copy in "black/whte" and not color? that will use the large black and not the small black cartrdge. Try a couple of black circles in "paint" if your running windows XP. make a test page of your own and print it.

Duplex printing flips page


That should be a setting somewhere in the printer or the print driver on the computer.
Here's a link to the manuals that comes with it.
