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.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

6A00 means the purge assembly is jammed. That's the unit that cleans the printhead. Sometimes it will last a while when cleaned, but I just replace them.
QM2-3032-000 about $20.00 but much easier at a shop.

    It has a jammed purge assembly, QM2-3032-000, about $20.00 but best done in a shop.

This is a sheet feeder error and you will need to thoroughly clean the paper path and make sure that there are no pieces of paper in the pathway and that all sensors are clear of dust, paper, debris etc. Then

1. Remove any paper from the Auto Sheet Feeder and Cassette.
2. Select the paper source with [Feed Switch].

3. Press [Menu] repeatedly until 3.MAINTENANCE> appears.
4. Use [<] or [>] to select <ROLLER CLEANING>.
5. Press [OK].
6. When cleaning has finished, repeat steps 3 to 5 for a total of three times.
7. Load A4- or letter-size plain paper in the selected paper source and repeat steps 3 to 5 additional three times

Canon MP830 error code 6A00


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
