SOURCE: the error 6A81 comes up
This is a purge unit error. There maybe something jamming the purge unit or just a absorber out of place which is picking up on the carriage preventing it from moving correctly. if you can move the carriage away from the purge (its where the printhead/carriage parks its self on the right side of the machine) with no resistance then you can shine a torch into the machine and look at the purge unit. there maybe crumpled paper jammed in the purge. If all looks well then the purge may need replacing. Lastly the wiper on the purge may have stuck. It slides back and forth and they have been known to stick. just push it with a long screwdriver to see it it moves.
