You still have a small piece of paper in there. If you have an air can, spray the air into the printer ports area, if not, tilt the macine towards you and lightly tap the back side and try to dislodge it....

When trying to print from the cassette get paper jam error but no paper is jammed. It doesn't even pick up the paper in the cassette. The error will not clear. Any suggestions as to what to do? It will...


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Somewhere in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if it is jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years; it is not just used in one model. And it is always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow. Move back and forth several times (with the power off)

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on


Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

  1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.

  1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

  2. Reinstall the paper tray.


Paper is jammed inside the machine:


  1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.

  4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.

  5. Gently move the print head to the center.

    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



Thanks for using fixya......

When i turn my printer on the light flashes green once and then orange 5 times. cannot get past this stage - any ideas?


Here are all the flashing explanations:

Two flashes: Out of paper or paper feed error

Reload the paper correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

Three flashes: Paper jam

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, reload the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.

See Paper Jams

Four flashes: Empty ink tank

If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. After printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it may cause damage to your printer.

Refer to your Quick Start Guide for instructions on how to replace an ink tank.

Five flashes: No print head installed/Defective print head

Install the print head. Also, ensure that the protective tape has been removed.

If reinstalling the print head does not solve the problem, replace it with a new one. Contact the Customer Care Center.

Eight flashes: Waste ink tank almost full

The printer has a built-in waste ink tank for the ink used during print head cleaning. Eight flashes indicates that the waste ink tank is nearly full. Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact the Customer Care Center.

Won't print


Sounds like a piece of paper is stuck inside the machine. Open all access doors and check. Remove the printer cartridge and reinsert. Make sure the print job has been purged from the queue.

TROUBLE PRINTING



These are following cases for this symptom.

If the access indicator flashes in green:

The data size of the image is large and it takes longer to process it for printing. Printing will start as soon as the data processing finishes.

If the paper error indicator flashes on the LCD:

The paper is jammed. Turn off the printer and turn it on again, take out the paper tray, and then remove the jammed paper from the paper outlet. If you cannot remove the jammed paper, consult with your Sony dealer or service facility.

If no indicator is lit or flashing:

The thermal head may be overheated. Leave the printer until the head cools down and the printer resumes printing.

Paper jam- now prints with lines


Paper jams are often caused by bits of paper left in the printer. If you can't get to it by opening any access panels, then the printer may need to be disassembled. Check all your access panels first. If that doesn't do anything, visit Staples or an Office Supply Store like that, and purchase a pack of Printer Cleaning Paper. The one I have, the paper is sorta folded like an accordian, and you get some spray to spray the paper. Run that thru the printer according to instructions a couple times. Are you able to remove your printhead? Check that for buildups. Lastly, how long have you had it? Canon printers offer a one year warranty. Good Luck!
