Error


Error 6A00 checked under the print cartridge home position for any remnants of paper. There was no paper but there was a build up of ink on some clear plastic strips. Cleaned them off and it will resolved the problem. I hope this may work for some others also.

Cannon Mp600. I have an error code 6A00


Try
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.

My Printer says error code 6A00 What do i do?


Try this especially if the printer had not been used for some time.
Switch it off, open the lid and manually (GENTLY!)slide the cartridge-tray to the left. Then you can see if a piece of paper or ink stucks it. Gently degunk the base pad with a little isopropyl alcohol on a Q-tip and ease the mechanism back.

How do I solve error message 6A00 on canon printer?


Turn switched it off, open the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left. Use a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored. It turned out to be stuck in a kind of upward position and somehow the mechanism that moves the tray is released so nothing happens when you switch on the printer.

Touching it snapped it loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

Please let me know.

I switched it off, opened the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left.

Then I used a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored. It turned out to be stuck in a kind of upward position and somehow the mechanism that moves the tray is released so nothing happens when you switch on the printer.

Touching it snapped it loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.
