No need for manuals and such, the foam goes in the track under where the carriage travels. It is only there to catch any overspray when you make a borderless print. Your printer will work fine without it, but you can just lay it back in the track, it's not glued or fastened. You should look inside to make sure the other end pieces aren't sticking up to catch on the printhead.

My Canon Pixma MP500 is printing only black.


Hey, Sound like something is wrong with the color cartridge. Replace the color one and try again. If that fails you might have to replace the printer as it doesn't sound like the problem is software related.

Foam fell out of printer now printer jams


There are no foams inside the printer for normal operation. Unless this is the one that was inside it during shipping but you were not able to remove it. In any case if you are not having any problems then you are good to go. dont worry about it.

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.
