Canon Pixma MP500

I have a problem with my all in one printer CanonMP500
Error code 6A00
Printer making bad noise !
Have turned off and on - no paper jamb detected - can't think what else to do. At the moment it won't print because 2 inks have run out. I don't want to put in new inks if the printer is a 'goner' !!

Have just received a reply from you

for error A600 -paper jamb - remedy did not work - Is that error the same as error 6A00 ?

Hello my friend, check if print head carriage has stuck and move the carriage a few times. You can also blew some compressed air around to clear any foreign objects.Also you can try moving the cartridge back and forth a few times and when you do that restart your printer .If still doesn't work you should take it to a repair shop.Good luck:)

Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

Pixma MP500 has a ERROR code 6A00 and the printer


Hi there

This answers with a titch more detail.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.
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.

And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit.
The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model.

And it’s always a paper path error or purge unit.

The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.


That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Also clean the purge unit out make sure all is clean.


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.

Printer wil not print there is a err 6a00


Your A600 is a paper path error, usually related to the purge unit. Try checking the purge unit for paper stuck in it.
          To say in detail ERR 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. 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.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.            The purge unit is a plastic assembly (on the right side of the printer where the print head homes) that is spring loaded on rides on a rail. move it back and forth about 5 times, close everything up, and restart. Note the the purge unit is NOT the print head! to be more specific: Take out all the ink cartridge, push the cartridge holder back and forth and clean the inside without taking it apart.
            Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit. here goes, the purge unit.

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

Error 6A00


I just had the same problem :( I dont have a true fix, but I slid out the cartridge to the left and back in. I read it had to do with a timing mark somewhere. When I powered it back up. It went back to normal
