    This is how I just fixed a Canon MP800 all in one with the flashing green & orange lights (a series of 9) & error code 6800. Left it UNplugged from the electrical outlet over night(You have to give it HOURS UNplugged or this will not work). Plugged it in the next day & turned it on. First window now showed a different error iu30 or some such, & showed a graphic of the ink cartridges with problems recognizing them. Held down the RESET button until the graphic showed the first cartridge as ok, (the picture will change), let go and held down the RESET button again for the next cartridge & so on until all 5 were ok. The screen then changed to a menu asking me what language I would like. Used the arrow keys around the OK button to select English. Then pressed OK for that language. The screen then changed again & said it would have to do a printhead alignment & to put paper in the printer. I put paper in & pressed the OK button again. It took about 5 minutes for the print head alignment. The paper with the alingment marks came out printed correctly. The next screen showed a normal screen which usually defaults to the Copy properties. Turned the printer off & on again a few times & everything was fine. Have no idea how long this will last or what caused the problem, but it is fixed for now. Related Problems & Solutions Filter Problems by Issues:

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.

My cannon mp600 printer makes a whirling noise when i switch it on.and comes up with error 6B00. the noise sounds like the cartridges are struggling to move across

From reading up specifics...

i have a couple of different pixma printers but have done similar things...

Paper feed position error [6B00]

possibly something is jamming the paper feed... like a toy or pen down the back or a tiny piece of paper?

have a good look ... maybe blow out with AIR DUSTER ... (still no go?)then after that try turning printer upside down and give it a gentle shake, yes, really

be careful though

if helpful please rate
