If you look inside the printer on the right hand side you will see the head cleaning mechanism.
The 6A00 error means that this head cleaning mechanism is jammed. If you push the cleaning pad down gently with a cotton bud or blunt end of a penci it will fall into its normal position and may reset after you turn the power on.
If it doesn't then you have options.
If you are still under warranty then contact canon otherwise you may need to strip the printer covers off and clean all of the ink build up away from the mechanism and possibly need to replace the return springs that return the carriage to its home position.
I have had this problem a few times and the release worked for the first 4 months but then i had to strip it down, clean the mechanism and replace the spring with a similar one.

My Canon Pixma MP600 printer has an error coming up of 6A00


Hi
Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: 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.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
