  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

How to fix code 6000 mx922

The 6000 error is a generic internal error code. Unfortunately, it could mean one of many things. To resolve the 6001 error, please follow the following steps:

1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the power cord and USB cable.
2. Remove paper from the automatic sheet feeder (in the back).
3. Gently pull jammed paper out, if any.
3-1. If paper is visible from the ASF, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.
3-2. If paper is visible from the paper output slot, use both hands to pull the paper out slowly.
4. If the paper tears and a piece of that remains inside the printer, open the printer cover and remove the paper from inside the printer.
5. Check ASF with a bright light to check for obstructions. Remove any if found.
6. Open the rear cover to check if the paper is jammed.
7. Pull out the cassette and check if the paper is jammed inside the cassette area.
8. Load paper back into the ASF or cassette.
9. Reconnect the power cord, turn on the printer and confirm that the Alarm light is off. (If there was any jammed paper remaining in the printer, the paper may be automatically ejected.)

If the above procedure does not resolve the error, the unit would require service:

Erreur code 6000

Error 6000 may be a paper feed error. Perhaps there's a paper jam, but it may be a malfunction (a.k.a the printer is broken).
Is it still under warranty? If so, contact Canon immediately to get it repaired.
Canon's 800 number is 800-828-4040. There hours are 8 A.M. to midnight Eastern Time., last I checked.
Good luck! and please rate me if this information helped you. Ex2bot

Error code 6A00 print head not moving. Sometimes

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.

Printer error 6000, on a canon Mp610 printer. i tried what the manual said [disconnect USB cable... etc] shut down, restart. printer still says error!!!!

6000 says the paper feed is not able to roll. Either something has fallen in to stop the rollers, or the encoder on the left hand side is too dirty to see the marks on the wheel.

When the printer is turned on the following message occurs - 6000

The error code: 6000 is explained in the service manual as "Paper feed error".

It could be a sensor issue or something that's fallen down/into the printer that's jamming rollers or similar.

I'd check for any paper jams, foreign objects in the rear paper feed, etc..

Given that you have a MP540 I'm guessing it may still be in warranty so if that doesn't solve it I'd recommend taking it back to your retailer and getting it resolved.

Can I ask if this has done this since purchase or just started doing it?

Canon MP960 Error - Paper Output Slot

Sounds like you made the right checks for jammed paper. Try uninstalling the printer, disconnect the printer from the computer and then with the printer disconnected, re-install the software. During the software installation the program will ask you to connect the printer. Only then connect it. When finished it should work. If not we can look at other solutions. Bud
