Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Canon says you need to send it to them to fix.
Before you do, turn the printer off and try moving the carriage back and forth a few times. At the same time, look for any debris in the area that could be jamming the sheet feed unit.
Turn the printer back on and see if the error goes away. Several other people with this problem report solving it this way.

6A00 means you need a new purge assembly. That's the unit that cleans the printhead. Part number is QM2-3032-000 around $30.00 but a shop should install it.

Make sure that no piece of paper struck inside the printer head.Switch off the printer ,Remove the cartridge and clean it and fix it again.

Hope it works for you
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.
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.
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.
