It's a mechanical error. The mechanism just below the printhead might be stuck. It could happen when the printer is not used for some time, the ink around the mechanism dried up. To fix this, you need to clean that mechanism. Try to move the printhead carriage to the left to expose the mechanism below it, this is the part of the printer that clean the printhead. Use a lint free cloth with some rubbing alcohol and wipe that mechanism clean especially the rubber that looks like a wiper. You will know when it's fixed when you try to slide that mechanism to the right or towards the back of the printer it should snap back freely to where it should be. Check also if there are any object, a tiny piece of paper maybe, that is keeping the mechanism from moving freely.

6A00 error code


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit. I would get in touch with Canon, to hopefully get it repaired. Not much you can do yourself sadly.

Error code 6A00


Hi
Error 6A00
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.

Receiving error code 6A00, and alarm light is


That error says the purge unit is broken. You will need to have the purge assembly replaced.
It's # QM2-3032-000 but a shop should replace it for you.
