My Canon printer MP630 has 6A80 error. I have turned off power as shown but with no result! Have checked the manual & tried again without success! Please can you help me?!


I suspect you have had a paper jam and removed the paper. However some still remains inside the machine. Its most probably around the purge unit. When the carriage parks on the right side of the machine, the purge unit rises to cap the carriage so your print head does not dry out. Open the internal cover so you can see the carriage. If it is anywhere other than at the far right side of its travel then kill the power by unplugging from the mains supply. Now the carriage is free to push. push it all the way to the left side. Shine a torch into the printer and you will see the purge unit on the right side. It has two black oblongs of rubber that mate with the print head. There will be paper scraps around it.Or it may be stuck and with a long screwdriver you can push it gently backwards to free it. If none of this helps and the carriage is stuck on the right side then again kill the power and rotate the long black roller that is under the carriage. Do this while gently trying to push the carriage to the left until its free to move then follow the above again.

Cannot remove the paper jam


To clear the message Paper Jam from the display, follow the steps listed below:

NOTE: images shown below are from a representative product and may differ from your Brother machine.


STEP A. Check for and remove any jammed paper or foreign objects in the machine

  1. Unplug the Brother machine from the power outlet.


    Caution Before you unplug the machine from the power source, you can transfer your faxes that are stored in the memory to your PC or another fax machine so you will not lose any important messages. Refer to the Related FAQs in the end of the page for information. (only for applicable models)

  2. Lift the scanner cover using the plastic tabs or finger holds, located on the left and right side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.


    jam_coveropen.gif

    Caution DO NOT touch the encoder strip. The encoder strip is a clear plastic strip in front of the white vinyl band (outlined in red as shown in the picture below). If the encoder gets markings or debris on its surface, it may cause other problems.

    20090511_02.gif






  3. Verify the location of the print head. The print head is a black square object, located behind the encoder strip. The print head moves from left to right.




  4. Move the print head to the middle using your fingers.


    Caution DO NOT touch the encoder strip (marked in red shown below).
    20090511_04.gif

  5. Check for and remove any ripped paper or a foreign object in the left corners or underneath the print head.


    Hint The ripped paper may be very small. Using a flashlight will help you to find the ripped paper.

  6. Turn the machine around and open the Jam Clear Cover (1). Look inside the machine and remove any jammed paper.

    jam03.gif

  7. Close the Jam Clear Cover. Make sure the cover is closed properly.


    jam05.gif

  8. After removing all of the paper scraps, Close the scanner cover by lifting the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the green scanner cover support down and then close the cover.

  9. Remove the paper tray (1) from the machine.

    jam01.gif
  10. Place one of your hands under the LCD unit and into the opening of where the paper tray was.

    jam_exit_roller.jpg

  13. Look in-between each of the black exit rollers for a piece of stuck scrap paper. (A flash light may need to be used if you are having trouble locating the paper scrap).

    jam_paper_scrap_stuck.jpg

  14. Using a pair of tweezers, the paper scrap can be easily removed from the exit rollers.

  15. Place the machine gently down onto the surface.

    • If no paper scraps were found inside the machine, please check the paper in the tray. If the paper is slightly curled, the print head will catch the edge of the paper and tear it. To resolve the issue, the paper in the tray must be replaced and continue to STEP 16.

    • If paper scraps were found and removed from the machine, continue to STEP 16.


  16. Put the paper tray back into the machine.

    20090511_09.gif

- If the print head is on the right side:

  1. Plug the power cord back into the power outlet and wait for the machine to stop making noises.


  2. Press the Stop/Exit key for approximately 5 seconds until the print head moves to the middle.


  3. Unplug the machine from the power outlet.


    Caution Make sure to unplug the machine. The print head may move and injure your hand. Before you unplug the machine, you can transfer your faxes that are stored in the memory to your PC or another fax machine so you will not lose any important messages. Refer to the Related FAQs in the end of the page for information. (only for applicable models)

  4. Examine the right side of the machine where the print head had been positioned and underneath the print head and remove any pieces of ripped paper or foreign objects.


    Tweezers may be used with caution to remove paper scraps or the foreign objects.


    Hint The ripped paper may be very small. Using a flashlight will help you to find the ripped paper.

  5. After confirm the paper scraps or the foreign objects in the right corners or underneath the print head, go to STEP 6.

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Carriage jam on hp photosmart printer


The print carriage may get stuck on either side or in the middle of the printer. The Carriage Jam: Open Door, clear carriage jam, and then press OK to continue error message may display on the front panel of the all-in-one.

Solution
The print carriage is the device which contains the print head and moves left to right during printing.
Figure 1: Carriage Assembly

To resolve this issue, follow the steps below in the order presented.

Step one: Print a Self Test

Follow the steps below:
1. Press the Setup button.
2. Select Print Report and press OK .
3. The self-test page should print. If it prints a test page, there is no need to follow the remaining steps, as the error message may be false. Make sure the printer now prints from the computer (if installed on one). If it does not print, proceed to the step two.

Step two: Clear the paper path

Follow the steps below to clear the printer of any jammed paper and reset the printer.
1. Leave the printer on and then disconnect the power cable and the USB or Ethernet cable from the back of the printer. Do not reconnect them until instructed to later.

NOTE: Make sure the printer is on before disconnecting the power cord. Failure to disconnect the power cord from the rear of the unit can cause damage when removing jammed paper.

2. Open the top access door.

Figure 2: Opening the top access door

3. Make note of where the carriage is stuck and look for jammed paper. A paper jam can cause the error message and the carriage stall. Some paper may be jammed in different locations than those shown in the photos below.

Figure 3: Paper jammed on the left side

Figure 4: Top view of paper jammed on the left side

Figure 5: Paper jammed on the right side

Figure 6: Top view of paper jammed on the right side

NOTE: Do not use any tools or other devices to remove jammed paper. Always use caution when removing jammed paper from inside the unit.

If the carriage is stuck on the right side:
a. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
b. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
c. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.

If the carriage is stuck on the left side:
d. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
e. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
f. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.

If the carriage is stuck in the middle:
g. Check for any paper or object that may be restricting the carriage.
h. Move carriage all the way to the left side.
i. Check the paper path all the way to the right side and remove any paper still in the printer.
j. Move carriage all the way to the right side.
k. Check the paper path all the way to the left side and remove any paper still in the printer.
4. Remove the rear access door or duplexer (if installed) from the back of the printer.
5. Check for and remove any paper still in the printer.
6. Replace the rear access door, and close the top access door.
7. Reconnect only the power cable. If the printer does not automatically turn on, press the Power button.

NOTE: The printer may go through a warm-up period of up to two minutes. Lights may flash and the carriage may move. Wait until this warm-up period is complete before going to the next step.

8. If the Power light is on steady, print a self-test page as done in Step one.

If the Power light is not on steady and the carriage is still in a stalled position, proceed to the next step.

Step three: Plug the printer directly into a wall outlet

Verify that the printer is properly connected to a suitable power source by following the instructions below.
1. Verify that the computer and the printer have a three-prong power plug.
2. Remove the printer cable from any power strips or surge suppressors, and plug it directly into a grounded (three-prong) wall outlet.
3. Try the print job again to see if this step resolved the issue.

NOTE: If the printer prints when plugged directly into a wall outlet while disconnected from any power strips or surge suppressors, the power strip or surge suppressor may not be allowing sufficient voltage to reach the product.

4. If this did not resolve the issue, proceed to the next step.

Step four: Service the product

If you have completed all of the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.hope this helps
