Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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.
Voila, problem solved!

SOURCE: 6A00 error
The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....
apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Error code 6A00
6A00 error on a Canon IP4200 is an AP Postion Error. This means one of three things. A problem with the sheet feeder, Logic board or the Purge Unit. Sadly these part are either working or not working and are difficult to repair. You could try resetting the EEPROM on the unit by entering service mode. A service manual will show you how to do that:
If that helps please rate my solution
