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 tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, 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 or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is 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'll 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.

Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

Canon Pixma MP800 error code 6A00 - what does it mean


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Canon says you need to send it to them to fix.

Before you do, turn the printer off and try moving the carriage back and forth a few times. At the same time, look for any debris in the area that could be jamming the sheet feed unit.

Turn the printer back on and see if the error goes away. Several other people with this problem report solving it this way.

Error Codes 6A00 and 5C10


I tried everything suggested on other posts (cleaning paper feeds and making sure rollers were free, moving carriage back and forth manually, etc)., but nothing worked. With it still plugged in, I turned the whole thing upside down and shook it. It hummed and buzzed, and moved the carriage a couple of times. Viola, problem solved. Go figure.
