Try manually moving the print carriage a few times. The problem is normally a stuck piece of paper or object. If you have any compressed air, try using that to blow out any dust or paper particles.

CAN NOT CONNECT TO MY PRINTER TO PRINT DOCUMENTS


First check if the printer is already installed into your computer.
Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270

If not please do the following:
1. Check if your printer is connected to the computer via USB, and check if you properly plugged in the power supply.
2. Look for the software or installer of your printer. Insert the CD to the CD-Rom and Install it until the setup completes.
3. After the installation of the printer, click Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270
4. Then try to print out some document. Just click File>Print and choose your Printer e.g.(Canon Pixma MG5270) then click the O.K. button to print the document.

Yellow and Green light keep blinking and wont let my printer do anything. Any ideas Canon PIXMA iP4500 plug into a new IMAC. Thanks Kelly


IP4000 6A00 error and green and orange blinking for 12 times.
Open the top of the printer, move the ink-cartridges to the left.
Look in the opening you get.
You will see a white plate with two transparent guides on this.
do not touch the transparent guide plate.
On the most right white arm push a little downwards with a pencil or a plastic pin.
May be you have to push on the grove a little more to the back .
You will see that the plate will move a very little and this obstruction for moving the cartridges and rollers is gone.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

6A00 error code is coming up on my PIXMA MP 500 Printer!


A 6A00 is a purge unit error. Either jammed or stuck or has gone bad. Check your purge unit. It"s the "wiper" which stop the printer

When the ink carrier is centered (automatic when the lid is open) look down to the right of it (far right) about a 2 o'clock position and see the squeegee thing.
It is supposed to be all the way back. Look for any paper residue or foreign objects.
Then take a small screwdriver and pushed on the hard plastic part (not the top where the rubber squeegee fins are) toward the back.

It may help to clean around it with cotton swabs and alcohol (very gently).
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
