Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer
Error 6A00 has no specific cause and no specific solution/fix. Sometimes, it's caused by Paper Jam, sometimes Waste Ink Tank Full, sometimes Carriage Problem and still many more.
Simplest Trick: Open the front cover, pull the cartridges with the carriage and leave them somewhere on the passage, now close the cover and turn off the printer, again turn it on. If it's not a fatal error, there'd be no more problem and no more error displays on the screen.
First try this, open the hood (front cover), after the cartridges moved towards the other end/side, look at the other side (the side where the cartridges were sitting before it moved to the other side). You'll see the Waste Ink Tank Pads (sponge), remove them and clean them (they should have been soaked with ink, so use a hand-glove). Remove the pads and squeaze or wash and dry them, after they are cleaned and dried, reinstall (re-seat) them. Now power on the printer and check again.
Secondly, (remove the cartridges before you begin) open the doors and look for paper jam or anything inside the passage and through the paper passage. Use a blower to blow all the dust and clear them out. Now turn off the printer and leave it for few minutes while you clean the cartridges, again switch on the printer, install the cartridges. Now see if it's still there or not.
Try turning the printer up-side down, shake it (do this while the machine is off) and again reboot it. Once again check the status.
Push in a photo paper (or similar thicker paper) into the sheet feeder, do this several times and again reboot the printer.
If the problem even after all these are done, let me know.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi. This is a common issue for canon printers. Error means print head carriage is stucked. Try the carriage a few times and blow some compressed air inside there might be foreign object stucked in the carriage.
all the best!
