  1. Problem similar on canon ip4300 was solved by removing semi dry ink from black sliding rail. White plastic slide was stuck to the right side (spring was still stretched when printing head I moved to the left). Slide the white plastic slide to the left and clean the rail. This slide must be free to move left and right.

1. Open the cover and wait for ink carriage to center
2. Pull out power cord
3. Pushed carriage to far left (should slide easily)
4. Used paper towel and wiped purge unit a lot of times (press down to soak paper towel with ink). Repeat until the paper towel is relatively clear.
5. Used diluted napisan (oxygen-based cleaning agent in the ratio of 1:3 with powder:water) and soaked paper towel
6. Repeat step 4 with wet paper towel. Repeat until purge unit is near-white.
7. Pulled and pushed clear plastic wiper (north of purge unit) and wiped it down
8. Slided carriage back to original position
9. Removed Print head cartridge and wiped out excess ink stuck on bottom.

Error6a00 canonip6700d

Hi dina,
This error code is for a sheet feed error so in english a paper jam.
Canon will offer you 2 choices if you contact them, send it or take it to be repaired at a hp store or let them swap it for a refurbished version.
There are no guaranteed fixes for this but you could have a look to see if there is any paper stuck inside even small bits and you could try to gently move the print head left and right, it will resist but just be gentle and wiggle it a bit, if that doesn't work use a little bit more force it will probably make a loud clicking sound but that's nothing too much to worry about as its just the cogs inside releasing and slipping.
Check carefully for paper as even small torn pieces could cause this error.
I hope this helps

Error 5b00 canon ip 6700d

Hi hamedan_nsr,

The 5B00 error code for Canon printers is the "Waste Ink Error Full" error. This means that the printer needs service, and will stay locked down until the Reset has been applied. Please be informed that Canon has changed all new printers over to the point that special "Service Tool" software is required to reset or "Service" anything in the printer. In the old days you could have easily and manually entered the Service Mode and manually reset the waste ink counter. Now you have to have the software to do this. The very bad news is that Canon is very tightly controlling and distribution of their Service Tool, and there is a different one for each model printer. Your only option is to take it to an authorized Canon service center and have them reset the printer. Most problem is that some people just apply the reset and never service the printer and sooner or later this will cause much bigger problems.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.
