Hello,

The problem is from the print head. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference.

Take care.

I have a Canon MP550 and after pressing ON button in few seconfs appeares message: ERROR CODE 6A80


[6A80] & Light Blinking 12 times = APP Position Error. An error occurred in the APP motor. Maybe foreign material or paper debris around the PURGE UNIT (at the printer most right hand side) or Auto Sheet Feed area.

I have a canon mx700 & have an error code 6A80 -need help


That error says there might be paper scraps stopping the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks, or something fallen into the slot where paper goes stopping the paper feed assembly. You just have to inspect closely with a flashlight before taking to the shop.

How do I re-set error 6A80? on my Canon PIXMA MX700 lcd display?


6A80 is APP position error.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.Check the sheet feeder.If this not help your printer need service.
