Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
This error code indicates a jam. The most common jam is a paper jam, which you can fix yourself by removing the cover and examining the internals for any stuck pieces of paper. They may be small from being torn and jammed through the machine, however it is likely there is one there. Your manual may give information on how to automatically clear a jam, however this does not always work. If you see any pieces of paper in the machine you will want to remove them and try again.
Also, There seems to be a considerable number of people who have encountered this error code on various Canon printers. Below is a forum you may want to read.
From what I am gathering from the forum is that this is a mechanical error of some sort with the prime culprit being the print head / slider mechanism. I hope this printer is still under warranty as it may require service.
Below is a post from one of the forum participants who also have a MP500 and got the same error code:
"I have a Canon Pixma MP500 and I got the 6A00 error. When I moved the cartridges to the left that white thing attached to the spring underneath was stuck. I just pushed it toward the back of the printer and cleaned underneath it....LOTS of ink. It works great now. Canon should mention this in their manual and have it as one of the maintenance options that you can do. But hey of this was the case then they wouldn't make their $60 to fix the problem. A CAVEMAN CAN DO IT! Lol."
Note - If the problem persists, that would confirm a hardware failure and needs you to contact Canon for repair / replacement options.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
