Make sure the unit is powered off before continuing.

On the right hand side of the print head holder - just to the right of the print cartridges is a lever. If you raise this lever the print head can be removed. When you have cleaned off the debris carefully replace the head and then lock the lever in position. Then run nozzle check, cleaning cycle then a head alignment process before printing again.

Canon MP970 prints blank pages. How can I FIX that problem?


Some times when you get a new cart. a fine film can be blocking the
exit hole,check that this is clear by shaking the cart. up and down
over a large piece of paper ,if you do not get any ink out ,take a small
pin and gently insert it into the exit hole and move it around in a circle,
don't go to deep,then try shaking it again..? Another idea is to replace
all the carts.(colour ones also) as some printers wont work unless you
do this, after changing carts. disconect your printer from mains supply
and leave for about 15 minuets to reset..Hope this works for you
good luck. T.C.

Error 6A00 on the Canon Pixma MP970


Hello and Welcome

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 MP970 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 in an HP,lexmark & other ink jet printers,is 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 'll 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

My mp760 says incorrect print head or remove foreign object from printer but i can't see anything stuck in there.


Make sure that there is no piece of paper stock between the print head and the side of the printer, the print head is the assembly that runs left to right during printing, you may find a paper or other object blocking the assembly from complete the travel to the right or the left. If all clear you need to replace the print head assembly.
Good luck.

Output jam on canon mp970


Hello there this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

A piece of paper got stuck in the printer. I pulled it out,but now the print of the words is flawed. How do I clean the printer heads?


If the paper tore, piece it together and make sure there is no paper bits left stuck in the paper feed-path.

Failing that, remove the cartridges and then remove the print head. Wash it under warm water. Dry with paper towel or toilet paper by blotting it gently. Then run a nozzle check and a nozzle clean.

Canon MP970 5100 error


I had this same problem. I took a flash light, moved the ink carriage and was able to feel around and find a small wad of paper. After removing it, I noticed a large amount of ink build-up running along UNDER the ink carriage. I took a damp Q-tip and got off as much as I could. To my surprise, it worked.
