6A00 means the purge assembly is jammed or worn out. Part number QM2-3032-000 around
$30.00. It's the cleaning assembly on the right where the printhead parks when shut down.

Error code 6A00


Hi
Error 6A00
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.

I have a Canon MP830. I am getting an error message 6A00 with a blinking alarm light. Cannot use copy or scan funcitons. Eric


Hello

Error 6A00 is a sevice error related to your device, not a user error. This a very good device and should not give you much trouble.

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. Make sure that the printer is clean on the inside and everything that should be able to
move, can move freely. It is usually a clogging of ink which causes this problem. Hope this can help you.

Best regards
Andrea
