The error code indicates high temperature issue of the printhead

first of all please turn off the unit....unplug the power cable
now remove the cartridge...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forth

clean the golden contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcohol

once done just turn on and check the status

let me know if you still recieve the error or not

in case after performing the above steps the issue still persists, then the unit may require service..maybe a printhead replacement

    Thank you for answering! Unfortunately, I believe there may be another cause. I get this message even after the printer has been off and unplugged for weeks. It followed a series of other error messages like ink out, maintenance cartridge replacement, etc. - all of which were incorrect. Now the print head assembly is locked on the right and will not move so I can't perform the steps you've mentioned, but I will try again. Thanks!

Hello Jc.Let me start by saying that despite the fact that you have properly been specific with the error code you have submitted, Canon is "fairly" specific in regards to the amount on detail in provides. I say fairly in really loose terms. The error 602 means that for any number of reasons when the copier went to boot" (begin to start up and read its directions as to what it is, who it is, and what it is capable of, it failed to get the instruction set (or failed to recognize the instructions) and therefore said "what"?!) as the copier sought to retrieve this info from the hard drive.That can mean that the partition of the hard drive that is was looking at contained corrupt information, or there was a communication interruption, or that the hard drive is going or gone bad. I know this sounds like a bunch of technical goblidy gook but you don't want to know what the 0101 means after the 602. It may not be too bad but brace yourself for the worst. That is that the hard drive may have went wheels up, or at a minimum all stored custom information is gone. The latter may be the best you can hope for. I am afraid that a "hail Mary" might be to power the copier of by way of the rear switch (or unplug if you are not familliar) and wait a few minutes.Restart and hope for he best. Otherwise you WILL need a technician to replace the hard drive and then they will have to reload the system software. I was reluctant to respond to your request for help as I cannot "fixya" and I will get a bad grade from the guys that run this site since I left ya hangin. But I could not resist trying to help you and to at least make sure you did not get raped by some "hungry for money" company. Please at least give a decent rating and I will keep my fingers crossed for you..................SPINAL

I have a canon IPF6300 large format printer and it is coming up with error code 03130031-2618

This code indicates a print head failure. First try replacing the Print Head, if however the problem persists things get substantially more complicated. Unless you are very techie it would be best to call a technician as further steps involve re-seating all the cabling to the Relay PCB and the Carriage Unit PCB. See more here.

6A00 error code

Unfortunitly this isnt an easy fix. IF you still have it under warranty you can contact Canon and the ywill fix it. If its not under warranty they can refer you to the nearest Canon repair center.

The 6A00 error is an internal error which can be caused by one of the following things.

- Sheet feed unit

- Logic board
- Purge unit

Best of luck..
