Hi,
The error code means paper path jam.
Inside your printer a paper path sensor has been activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
So please check for any stuck paper, debris
The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.
Also clean the purge unit out make sure all is clean

Hello, I got an error message 5C10. What does that


I just had this error message appear on my computer screen and the 6A00 on my MP830 printer at the same time. I heard this error mean a few things (paper jam, ink carriage stuck), though not sure what it does actually mean. I moved the carriage back-and-forth, blasted compressed air and checked for paper jams. When nothing worked, I looked inside and saw a lot of spilled ink, I'm guessing from not using genuine Canon ink. I blotted the inside with paper towels (use gloves!!),especially the far right, and took out the ink cartridges and blotted the carriage. I replaced everything, powered the printer off and on, and it worked fine. I would suggest first to slide the carriage back-and-forth and look for paper jams before cleaning the ink. Hope this works for you.
