The printer jams each time I try to print, and although I think it's clear, it still jams.

The ink and paper lights are blinking and the power light is not lit

Both the ink and paper flashed rapidly at the same time.

After intense searching on the net, I tried just about everything. SSC service utility did
Nothing. Turning printer off and on also didn’t help.

Turning printer off then pressing the paper and ink buttons, then turning power on, then waiting for both lights to flash, releasing them and pressing the ink button for 10 seconds also didn’t help.

After days of this I got frustrated, packed the POS back into the box and put it up for sale
On Craigslist. No takers… I was about to put it out to the curb ($540 printer sat in the box for almost a year) but decided to do one last google and found someone talking about the print head moving along the rail.

Suggestion was to turn printer off and see if print head traveled freely back and forth. Ok I thought, Pulled the printer back out of the box and set it up again. Reinstalled software and turned it on. Red lights flashing again! Ok, press the ink button to move head to home, then turn printer off. Then I tried to move head along rail. It moved freely a couple of inches to the left then stopped like something was blocking it.

Took my flashlight out and could not see anything in the way so pushed down on the cartridge cover and heard a “click”….. Duh! The freakin’ cover was not closed! Now the head would move left and right all the way so I turned the printer on and to my amazement NO more flashing red lights! I was both thrilled and depressed (at my stupidity) for not seeing this earlier.

I will post this everywhere I can to remind people that the cartridge cover is the FIRST thing you should check upon seeing both red lights flashing rapidly!!!!!

Printer stopped working. I just added new ink supply. Alarm light flashes. Printer status says "service error 6A00"--"check printer" "cancel printing and press the ok button." None of this works. And I...


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.

Blinking both the ink botton ligths and the botton paper


I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.

Turn the printer off. Open the cover and check for any foreign objects that can cause your print head not to move. Check if you have put the ink cartridges correctly and make sure that the cover for the ink tray is closed. Turn the printer on, if your going to see the same status of the lights, it will be a hardware issue.
