Try cleaning off the contacts on the ink carriage with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. The part that connects to the copper contacts on the printhead. You can't harm them by cleaning this way. And the alcohol evaporates pretty quick. Canon ink is 65% alcohol and this dissolves and cleans off ink residue on any part of the printer. Sometimes these contacts get dirty over time and won't read print heads installed any more. This fixes about half the printers like this I have problems with.
If cleaning doesn't help, and a new print head won't work, then the only fix is to replace the ink tank carriage assembly.

A possible paper jam has happen on the unit. Did you have an paper jam error before you have this problem?
You must clear any paper jam on the unit, check the unit for any stuck paper or object or check if there was misaligned parts inside.
Let me know for any clarifications.
Thank you for using fixya.

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.
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.
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.
