    I tried what you suggested - turning the printer off at the power point and pulled out the connection from the compputer - and the problem persists! Nothing happened! Any other suggestions? Many thanks

Follow these steps to troubleshoot the problem.

The 6A00 is a mechanism jam code.

Probale causes
1.PR Lift shaft assembly
2.Sheet Feed Unit
3.Logic Board
Only your local Canon Dealer will know for sure!

Switch off and disconnect the printer from power supply. Also disconnect any other units (PC etc) to it. Leave the printer disconnected for 30 minutes. It should do a soft reset itself, then restart it.

    The only other thing I can think of is it is not reading the print head. Push down on print head and see if code goes away.



    You might want to call canon tomarrow though.



    Good Luck

SOURCE: Canon MP830 error code 6A00

The problem apparently is related to the purge unit located at the far right side on where the printhead moves back and forth.
there appears to be three common problems that causes the error, which is related to a paper jam error. 1) If its a new printer or even an older one, there are two sponges that collect ink and two plastic wipers located in purge unit may be loose or missing. Check to see if its it there. If not, it may actually be stuck somewhere.
2) there may some paper stuck somewhere around the printhead and or the purge unit or
3) there is a build up of gooey ink on the purge unit.
, I turned off the printer & unplugged it, move the printhead to the left and used long Qtips with Windex to clean up the ink around the purge unit including a little white plastic spring-loaded lever. also dampen the sponges with Windex. If you do this be careful not to dislodge the sponge or wipers. If you do, you can alway stick the pieces back in. After cleaning it, and checking the sponges and wipers are seated correctly, plug the unit back in and hopefully it will work fine. hope this helps.dont forget to rate as fixyaa

thanks and Godbless

HI,

Please the pixma off and open the lid.Now manually slide the cartridge-tray to the left.

Use a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored.See if it is stuck in a kind of upward position and look if the mechanism that moves the tray is released if not then touch it and it will be loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

Let me know if you still get the same error.

Thank you

That error means the purge assembly is jammed. Check for paper caught in the right side where the printhead parks, if all clear you will need a new purge assembly. A shop repair for sure....

SOURCE: Error Code 6A00, printer not working MP830

This error code means there's something blocking the movement of the cartridges carriage (print head carriage, the mechanism (that slides left-right) which carries the cartridges). Open the front panel door and try cleaning the mechanism, even a small piece of paper or hair can be the obstruction.

Don't forget to turn off and turn on your printer after you are done.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Error Code 6A00 for MP830


try simply moving the cartridge back and forth a few times first


Because: 6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit. Follow Canon's suggestion, take it or send the unit UPS to the Authorized Repair Facility. You will NOT be able to resolve the problem yourself.

Error code 6A00


Error Code 6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit. You cannot fix it by yourself because you do not have the tools to fix the printer.
You go to a Canons Support Page and ask for a replacement if it is still under warranty or you replace the printer with a new one.
