It is because of Purge unit can be damaged or stuck. Probably you have to pulled apart the printer and check the purge unit.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Error Code 6A80 on the Canon MX700

Supply Guy,
Here is the solution.
I am going to describe 4 buttons on your printer. Then, I will tell you what to do with these buttons to resolve this error.
1. Look for the Black & White selection button (large white button w/ black diamond on it).
2. Look for small pink button (bottom left corner of your printer control panel).
3. Look for the OK button (big button in middle).
4. Look for the On/Off button (top left).

OK - here we go. With the printer turned off, do this:
1. Using four fingers, one on each of the four buttons, press them all and hold them down for 10 seconds.
2. Release the On/Off button - but keep holding the other 3.
3. After a few more seconds the printer will turn on. When it does this, you can release the other three buttons.

So, to summarize, you press all 4 buttons for 10 seconds, release the power button and wait for the printer to turn on. After it is on, let go the other 3.

Your error message should go away. If you don't hold the buttons all down simultaneously, the printer could go into Fax mode; just turn it off and try again.

Reset the device when it is not functioning properly.

1. On the operator panel, press and hold the button for one second. (The display will go blank.)


Note: It may be necessary to unplug the power cord if pressing the ON/OFF button does not shut off the printer.


2. Wait approximately ten seconds and then press the button again.

I have a Canon MP550 and after pressing ON button in few seconfs appeares message: ERROR CODE 6A80


[6A80] & Light Blinking 12 times = APP Position Error. An error occurred in the APP motor. Maybe foreign material or paper debris around the PURGE UNIT (at the printer most right hand side) or Auto Sheet Feed area.

How do I re-set error 6A80? on my Canon PIXMA MX700 lcd display?


6A80 is APP position error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output)
is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.Check the sheet feeder.If this not help your printer need service.
