Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Cannon MP830 printer, that is displaying 6A00 error

I have a Cannon MP830 printer, that is displaying a 6A00 error on LCD, and the orange alarm light is flashing. Also the ON switch is not working, I have to unplug it to turn off the power.

Checked under the hood, it appears that the purge thingy.. is not sliding at all. With the power turned off, I can easily push it from side to side. No paper jam or anything blocking that I can see.

Any ideas on how to fix, or what is wrong. It was working fine this morning. This occured trying to send a fax.

Hope you can help.
cheers

Yup, the purge thingy needs to be replaced. part number QM2-3032-020. Around $20 bucks for the part, not easy to change.

SOURCE: MP830 6A00 error, On switch also wont work

Hi
Seen this lots
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: 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.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

On printer screen it is showing Error 6A00 and error code. Whats does this mean and how can I fix it


In my IP 3000 during a print suddenly on the 3rd page, a big "crunch" sound. Paper was jammed - error 5100 or smthg, and managed to remove the paper... but then error 6A00 came up. I found this post and was saved. Manually moved the print head left and right, turned the printer on/off. Still the same error. Then I noticed a piece of torn paper lodged inside. Removed that, got inky fingers, and finally got printer in working condition.
Try to clean any foreign object inside.May be it can help you.

Canon MP 830 Error 6a00


thats because 6a00 is a service error not a user error, It could be down to use of none canon inks glogging the ourge unit up after time, it could be due to paper or objects in the purge, i would take the covers and inspect the purge and make sure that it moves back and foward, who ever told you to turn it upside down is having a joke., that will never work. Some times it could be gearing on the back on the purge.

I would ask for a service engineering, depending where you live i have a few contacts. Mp830 is a very good product and you shouldnt have alot of problems.
