This is an eye opener -- I always promised myself I wouldn't buy an all-in-one and I did.. I am on my 2nd model and now have the famous error 6A00 and 6800. Through much internet searching I found some advice -- more than I got from Canon. I went to the right side after gently moving the print head to the left and seached and there was a small piece of paper in there and I thought my problem was solved. I then printed only to find each sheet would feed incorrectly and the corner on the right side would fold for every sheet and then more paper ended up on the left side creating crinkled paper and finally the 6800 error. Nothing clears this error and now I am back to no printing. I have black fingers and am totally frustrated! My best advice -- if you are buying an all in one get the additional 3-yr contract and the thing will get replaced.

When trying to print, paper gets jammed, screen comes up with 'error code 6A00'


Hi
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.

Service error 5c10, error code 6a00 wored


6A00 is the error when the purge assembly is broken or jammed. You need a shop to install a new one since the entire print engine has to come out to replace it.

Service error 6A00


It looks like the print carriage was stuck. Turn on off the printer, manually move the ink cartridge back and forth a few times, look underneath for dirt or small piece of paper (usually happens when you have jammed paper) or use a blower to clean any foreign objects.

One of two error messages comes on: (1) 5C10 or (2) 6A00, as well as the yellow alarm button and it won't print. I couldn't find anything in the path of the print head holder. PLEASE HELP! Thanks.

6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Follow Canon's suggestion, take it or send the unit USPS to the Authorized Repair Facility.
You will NOT be able to resolve the problem yourself.
if you paid for warrantie it can be replace 4 an other one
