Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Our mp530 is giving error code 6a00. I have swabbed ink out of the pad area that the ink cartridge docks and it appears that the pad has gotten stuck in the down position. It will not pop back up in spite of being swabbed with alcohol. What next?

Hi

The excess ink is dragged across the printed paper and smears the page with streaks of ink.
The excess ink dries fast and cloggs the printhead.
The black ink on the color ink printhead can contaiminate the other colors and ruin the print quality.
To resolve these 3 problem, try to replace the ink cartridges.


If not, try to remove and reinstall the wiper blade back in place. You will need to take the printer apart and take out the purge unit and re-install the wiper blade. If the blade is broken, you will need a new purge unit.

My Canon MP530 is giving 6A00 error message and alarm light is flashing along with copy button. i have replaced empty ink cartridges with new ones. Can anyone help, please?


Error code 6A00 indicates an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You need to replace sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit to fix it. Before replacement of the logic board assy, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit when replacing the logic board assy.

I'm getting an error code of 6A00 on my Canon Pixma MP530


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.

MP530 KEEPS GIVING US A C510 ERROR OR A 6A00 PROBLEM HOW DO WE SLOVE THIS.


6A00 means the purge assembly on the right where the printhead parks is jammed or stuck. You can look to the right if the carriage is not stuck on the right, see if there is paper or something caught in there. After that it will need a new purge assembly, around $40.00

Getting error code 6A00-Canon PIXMA MX850 all-in-one printer


The error indicates that the slide the cartridges run on has debris buildup or a component of the printer is blocking the cartridges ability to slide.

Steps to fix...
1. Unplug printer from power source
2. Slide the cartridges to the middle and inspect the slide for a buildup of "gunk" or pieces of debris. Remove what you see and clean the slide with a lint free rag and isopropyl alcohol
3. Look for any part of the printer that may have become dislodged or moved from vibaration and use and try to put it back in to place.
4. Get some "canned air" at any computer or office supply store and blow the printer out thoroughly.
Plug the printer back in and it should work again.
