Question about Canon PIXMA iP6700D InkJet Photo Printer
I've try to to print something in my canon pixma ip6700d and it gave me an error A600. After this she didn't work anymore.
Your A600 is a paper path error, usually related to the purge unit. Try checking the purge unit for paper stuck in it.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.
Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code.
Almost 90% of the time is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move.
Look for paper, paper clips, push pins, screws flower bud pods or the like.
The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.
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.
The purge unit is a white plastic assembly (on the right side of the printer where the print head homes) that is spring loaded on rides on a rail.
You can try moving it back and forth about 5 times or so and clean the rail with a cleanex and putting a little bit of some light oil on it and then close everything up and try it.
If you found this useful all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.
