Canon mx850 Error code 6A00


Hello thank you for using FixYa.

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.As a Canon technology,I usually find the code almost 90% of the time it is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.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 etc.
I have found all those things in a purge unit.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.A
Canon Pixma MX850 Printer would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model & its always a paper path error or purge unit
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit,called a spittoon assembly,where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.That is why you will find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow

Error code 6A00 comes up. Data line and power cord


That error means the purge assembly is not working properly. Could be a scrap of paper stopping it from cycling properly. The purge unit is the cleaning assembly where the printhead parks, it has caps that draw ink from the printhead to clean and a squeegee to wipe off the excess ink. If the printhead comes to the center, unplug printer and check on the right. If nothing there you probably need a shop repair.

I have a new canon MX850 all in one printer. Only had it a month and an error code 6A00 has come up on the LCD screen.


Error code 6A00 indicates purging operation error. Please observe purge unit first, it's located in right inside the printer. Is there broken paper disturb its function?. If there is no another material out there,means purge unit is faulty and you need to bring you printer to nearest service center.
