Canon PIXMA:
Inkjet liquid has to dry up. Does not matter if you leave it in or out, or try to repackage it.
If it was laser jet which infact uses powder like material would stay intact for long.
Hope that helped.

Error message 6A00 on a Canon PIXMA IP6600D

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.

my friend who is a computor t echnician came to see if he could fix it and he did. he had to go into my pixma ip6600d photo printer from the back of it and tilt it , he then discovered one of the inks were not fully in and thats why it wouldn,t move, he then pushed down on top of the 6inks with a pencil and the inks were all even and they started moving freely again. I hope this works for others as it is a great photo printer.

Canon pixma ip6600d omitting black ink

Many printers use color to make black, you may have to FORCE it to use the black ink cartridge for black or turn off something that is telling the printer to use the color cartridges for the black.

That's my educated guess anyway...

I do know that some printers do this, so I'm assuming this is what is giving you trouble. I don't know why it would print any different on a memory card than from the computer though...

How do i replace ink?

Turn the printer on and open the dark grey cover from front, this should move the Ink tanks into view, lift the arm on the left side of the tank to remove the old ink. insert the new one lock the arm back and close lid. If you provide an email address I can provide you with the PDF manual for your printer, or you can go to support and download the manual.
