Welcome to Fixya

Try this troubleshooting steps:

Open the top of the printer, move the ink-cartriges to the left. Look in the openening you get. You wil see white plate with two transparant guides on this. Do not thouch the transparant guide plate
On the most right white arm push a little downwards with a pencil or a plastic pin. May be you have to push on the grove a little more to the back. You will see that the plate will move a very little and this obstruction for moving the cartriges and rollers is gone. Restart the printer then try to print again.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I have an error code of 6A00. I dont know what this is and how to correct it


Hello,
AP position error [6A00] means that an error occurred in the AP motor during

you better contact a tech because it is not that simple to fix if you have no tech expirience.

Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

What does error code 6A00 mean?


6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Take it or send the unit UPS to the Authorized Repair Facility. You will NOT be able to resolve the problem yourself.

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.

Printer wil not print there is a err 6a00


Your A600 is a paper path error, usually related to the purge unit. Try checking the purge unit for paper stuck in it.
          To say in detail ERR 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. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. 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.The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement.            The purge unit is a plastic assembly (on the right side of the printer where the print head homes) that is spring loaded on rides on a rail. move it back and forth about 5 times, close everything up, and restart. Note the the purge unit is NOT the print head! to be more specific: Take out all the ink cartridge, push the cartridge holder back and forth and clean the inside without taking it apart.
            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. here goes, the purge unit.

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..
