Error code 6A00


[6A00] or Light blinking 12 times = AP position error. It's mean there is an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You may need to replace Sheet feed unit, logic board or purge unit. Thank you

Error 6A00 when attemnpting to print from Canon IP3000 printer.


Hi,


According to the service manual of the printer, the Error 6A00 is one of the Service Call Errors (by LED blinking in orange and green alternately 12 times.) The name of error is “AP position error [6A00]”. The sheet unit (QM2-1220) or Logic board ***’y (QM2-1520) may be faulty. And the replacement of the part is needed which is likely to be faulty.
It means that you have to waste money.
But you can try the solutions below:
Solution 1:
It looks like the print heads need to dip down into the small sponges underneath the white plate at the end of the start motions. Just move the print head carriage (white plate) back and forwards a few times.

Solution 2:
Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. This may be 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 its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.
Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.
Solution 4:
After trying the solutions above to reset the error:
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.


I hope it helps.

All the best.

MP830 has a 6A00 code


The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam and seems to be a very common problem with these printers. Click Here to read some resolutions to this issue that may or may not work for you.

Error code 6A00


6A00 error on a Canon IP4200 is an AP Postion Error. This means one of three things. A problem with the sheet feeder, Logic board or the Purge Unit. Sadly these part are either working or not working and are difficult to repair. You could try resetting the EEPROM on the unit by entering service mode. A service manual will show you how to do that:

Error Code 6A00


I have the Canon Pixma iP4000R printer. I had an error code of 6A00 and my power light was blinking/flashing green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange-green-orange (12 oranges).

I tried the “waste ink counter reset reset” procedure: Power on while holding the stop/reset button and pushing the service button twice, then pushing the stop/rest button 4 times to clear the error, but that didn’t work.

My ink cartridge carrier wasn't moving-staying in the center. I thought I had a paper jam.

I looked at a few blogs about my error on other Canon Pixma models and they kept talking about “sponges”.

The following is what I discovered that cleared my error and now my printer is back to printing!

The “sponges” are 2 hard pieces of absorbing plastic or something of the like. I was looking for a softer material like the long thin gray foam strip material in my printer. The 2 "sponges" on my Pixma iP4000R were next to each other-one was rectangular and one was square-like. Originally they were white but the ink made them black/navy.

The "sponges" are located on the right under where the ink cartridge carrier "rests".

I didn't see the sponges at first, as there was a white backwards “L” shaped plastic piece that had a spring attached to it. The “L” shaped piece was moved forward out of its place. I used my pen tip and pushed that piece back and found that the rectangular "sponge" had popped out of its place.

I used a pen tip popped both “sponges” out and rinsed them with water and voila they were once again white. I think the rectangular one had so much ink on it it popped itself out of place.

My error is gone and I can print again!
