Dear troughton


I had this error (6A00) on a MP760 after a couple of months of not using it.

I switched it off, opened the lid and manually slid the cartridge-tray to the left.

Then I used a piece of tissue to clean the base-pad where the heads are stored. It turned out to be stuck in a kind of upward position and somehow the mechanism that moves the tray is released so nothing happens when you switch on the printer.

Touching it snapped it loose. Remove all ink residue, move the tray back to its most right position and close everything.

maybe you can succseesfull like me



post me in back

oke,thx

cropp

My Canon MP530 is giving 6A00 error message and alarm light is flashing along with copy button. i have replaced empty ink cartridges with new ones. Can anyone help, please?


Error code 6A00 indicates an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You need to replace sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit to fix it. Before replacement of the logic board assy, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit when replacing the logic board assy.

Error message 6A00? on Canon MP830 - mrssage occurs on switching printer on - tried to switch off and on again and same error message appears


That error, 6A00, says that the cleaning station is either stuck or broken. If the printhead is not stuck on the right, pull it out to the center and look inside with a light and see if paper scraps or something is stopping it. There is also a spring loaded squeegee that could be stuck on the rubber cups and needs to be gently pushed to the rear. If The squeegee is stuck you need to use a wet Q-tip and clean the tracks it rides on and it shouldn't stick again. If these things don't help you will need a shop to replace the purge unit. about $20.00 plus labor charges. It is too complex to replace at home.

Printer is flashing orange in equal increments. When printing, I get the error message 6A00. It tells me to turn the printer off then on again. I turn it off an on again, but this does not fix the problem....


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.
