Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Have tried simultaneous pus of ON/OFF and Stop/Reset. No joy.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam even though the paper is not actually jammed.so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon printer 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.
The purge unit is a white plastic assembly (on the right side of the printer where the print head homes) that is spring loaded on rides on a rail.move it back and forth (actually forward and back) about 5 times manually .till it moves freely completely.this will solve the problem in 99% cases. if it still has problem after that then:The problem is inside the printer. Turn off the printer and open the replacement ink compartment- move the inks holder far to the left- use a torch to check where the inks holder home and you'll see that there is a sponge a tiny rectangular shape come loose -use the twiter and put back in place (holder). the above procedure will definately solve your problem.

this is a PIXMA MP830? yes?
to clear memory, reset it.
Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.
To clear error messages displayed on the LCD or if the printer is not functioning as expected, it may be necessary to simultaneously press Stop/Reset and ON/OFF buttons.
Check / clean and clear a paper jam:
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
And finaly check that the lock switch is unlocked.
If you have done everything above, take out the print cartridges, let it sit for a moment without the cartridges and let it "ask for the cartridges back" or just turn it off and on again. Reinsert the cartridges and check if the issue is solved.
If the problem is not solved the unit will need service from canon.
