Hi. I have a Canon MP540 printer. It was working fine until I moved it around a few minutes ago. Now it shows error 6A80 that isn't changing even when I switch the printer off and on again. Any tips on how...

Switch off the printer.Please disconnect the printer from the computer. Clean the printer inside with compressed air if you can otherwise open the printer cover and see there is no dirt/grit/paper stuck up. Replace the cove and the reconnect to the computer and switch it on. If it still shows the error then I am afraid you have to show it to a technician as some component has been displaced when it was moved.

Canon PIXMA iP4600 - error 6A80

Hello someone else here had this problem, this is what he posted: "Same problem with a Canon MP540 fresh from the box. Turned out to be the print head unit was not returning fully to the home position ie extreme right. My Fix : When the scanning unit cover is raised the print head unit moves left for access, look in the vacated area to the right, in particular the small black sponge where the head normally parks. I found a small spring jammed in beside the sponge, removed it and all is well. Don't know what the spring was meant to do but everything is working fine without it.On the MP540 the head unit now glows red, presumably meaning all is well... "

Error 6A80

Error 6A80 indicates that "an error occurred in the APP motor
during purging operation". Either the sheet feed unit, purge unit, or logic board could be at fault.

I'd recommend bringing the unit into your local canon authorized service facility for complete diagnostic and repair.

Error 6A80

I had this error and a Canon engineer showed me how to deal with this.

Basically there is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit".

(a) Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
(b) Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
(c) Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
(d) underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
(e) push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
(f) power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)

Hopefully error should go after you attempt this a few times!
