Hello and Welcome 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 technology,I usually find the code almost 90% of the time it 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 etc. I have found all those things in a purge unit.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.A Canon Pixma MP970would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model & its always a paper path error or purge unit I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit,called a spittoon assembly in an HP,lexmark & other ink jet 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 why you 'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow

install the software for the canon solution menu and it nearly gives you pictures of what to do. In a nut shell use the cd label print from the canon solution menu and when you hit print it prompts you what to do. Put the cd on the black tray hiden under the front of the printer. Open the front grey trap door. Reach in and pull down a the black inner tray. There is a small curved half circle cutout for your finger to pull this down. Don't be scared to pull it down it won't break. Place the cd holder with the arrow pointing into the printer and advance it up to the point equal with the arrow on the black tray bit that you just pulled down. Fire off the print button and and the machine autochecks the position and does the rest for you.
this is straight from canon.com
