6A00 fix
There is a sponge to the right of the ink cart that gets pushed up to prime each ink cart. The sponge then drops back down when finished. The problem is that the sponge gets stuck up. Just give it a tap and it will fall down, turn off then on and all fixed

I did have a paper jam a couple days ago and am now getting a a600 error code on my mp530, any suggestions on how to reset this?


Hi,

A600 is a generic error message of a Canon Printer that points out to a hardware issue. No specific part is referred to so it's difficult to tell. You need to take this to the nearest service center to be checked and repaired, as what Canon techs advise.

The cartridge holder won't slide along - just says error message A600. Had just replaced a cartridge, and it did work at first, but not 5 mins later


Hi there

Error A600
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.
I will keep on helping.

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.
