Re: pls open cover

This could be caused by a series of things the best way is to check the error code. While powering up hold down MENU/SET
then you might see MAINTENANCE or you might get a machine error. enter 82 if you see maintenance. It should say Machine Error 00. Meaning no problem. Any other number will let a service tech know what the problem is. Press STOP then enter 99. It might reset at that point.

My cannon printer MX700 just now paper have jam inside. After i taken out of paper that jam inside my cannon printer have a error of 6A80 and it can't fixed. Pls help. Thanks.

The 6A80 indicates that the mechanism called the `purge unit' does not work correctly. In some cases after a paper jam, some paper gets in the unit. Try this:
Turn on the unit and open the cover. Hopefully, the printhead will come to the center. If it doesn't, unplug the printer and try to move the printhead by hand, to the left. Do not force it. If you are able, get a flashlight and inspect the area inside the unit to the right. There may be bits of paper in that area. Being careful, remove it with a tweezers or some such tool.
If you cannot see anything, then the machine will need to be dismantled for service. I recommend authorized service.

The paper jam could be in three places.

Open the cover of fixing section, its above bypass, and check for jamed paper


Open the transfer cover, these cover has handle and it goes by pulling toward you, and check for jamed paper.


In hight of first paper cassette, on left sideway of copier, beaneath the bypass are small door, open it and check for paper jams. Be sure that you closed them properly because if they arent closed the check printer cover message will arrise.

Recurrung jam message

if there's no paper jammed then a sensor might be dirty, the printer has several sensor along the path of the paper to detect its flow.

Paper jam

This is a very easy fix.
  • First, open the front cover.
  • Next pull out the black thing that is right there.
  • The cartridge is inside of the drum, and the drum is what you need to pull out.
So basically, when you open the front cover, you need to pull out the thing you see, and you need to pull it upwards for it to come out. The paper should be under it or behind. Hope this helps! If you need pictures, just email GOOD LUCK!

this error indicates 1 of the following.

the front cover is open
the back cover is open
paper jam

usually its the back cover, either its not fully closed or the swing gate inside is not in track with the sensor, it has to be pulled out realigned and put back in.)

also possible there is a little piece of paper jammed inside the front or back area.

thanks adi

My printer always said ''open back cover and then remove the paper jam'' what's that means? also can't print anything.

open the back cover to remove any paper jam on your printer, follow on it. Maybe there's a paper inside hanging in the ruler, take a look.
