6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
The print head carriage would have been stuck and try manually
moving the carriage a few times and the problem would be resolved.
Try blowing some compressed air around hoping to clear any foriegn objects.
Notice whether some piece of torn paper lodged inside.

Hope it helps.

Fault/error 6A00 for my canon MP830 flash light and no paper (fault) roller defect can I fix this ? John

6A00 is AP position error.Possible problems in:
- Sheet feed unit (QM2-1220)
- Logic board assembly (QM2-1520)
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

My canon mp610 is showing fault no 6A00 any help would be great bob chasey

6A00 indicates that "an error occurred in the AP motor
during purging operation". This is a service call error and requires that the printer be brought into a canon authorized service facility for repair. The service facility would be able to fully diagnose the problem and properly repair it.

Canon M P 800

All the best
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.

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.
