SOURCE: My CAnon MP 610 has a service error 6A00. What is

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.


All I ask is 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.

SOURCE: service error 6A00

The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. A sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, screws, cookie crumbs, cake, toast you get the idea. Get yourself a can of compressed air and blow the paper roller out, also a slightly damp paper towel and gently clean off the paper feeding rollers.
Anywho this should fix you up. good luck, please post rating, thank you kindly





















































































































Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its 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 a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

SOURCE: Canon ip5200 Service Error 6A00

This might have something to do with canon's absurd print cartridge limitation agreement.... where the print cartridge will only print for a certain limit and then locks

Turn the printer off.
Open the top cover and move the printer cartridge to the left.
On the right you can see a white part.

Turn the printer on.

Turned printer on and it comes up with Error Code 6A00


AP position error will trigger the 6A00 error code. An error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. As per service manual, you will need to replace the sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit.

6A00 is the error when the purge assembly is broken or jammed. You need a shop to install a new one since the entire print engine has to come out to replace it.

Check printer and 6A00 flashing


6A00 indicates that "an error occurred in the AP motor
during purging operation". This is a service call error and requires that the printer be brought into a canon authorized service facility for repair. The service facility would be able to fully diagnose the problem and properly repair it.

Cannon MP810 when turn on display error A600. There is also no light displaying on the printing cartridge.


A600 or 6A00. If 6A00 then the fault code is for the AP motor position error. Error lies with the sheet feed unit, Purge unit or Logic board.
