The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Somewhere 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 it is jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years; it is not just used in one model. And it is 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 an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow. Move back and forth several times (with the power off)


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

Canon MP830 Error Code 6AOO


The error seems to indicate a failed sheet feed, check the paper path to see for any stuck bits of paper, however I have heard that this can also be caused by a flaky sensor in the paper path.....

apparently the best way to deal with this is to turn it upside down and give it a shake.

hope this helps

Error 6aoo can't clear it


Take off the side and top covers off to reveal the print head. There is a device that slides back and forth and acts like a window cleaners squeegie on the printhead. This mechanism might be stuck at its full extention rather than being back at its starting position. Turn on the printer and make sure that it moves if it doesn't push it a little bit not to hard. It may have been blocked from dry ink. Do not force any part of the covers. There are little arrows in the plastic indicating where the snap locks are, stick a flat head screw driver in to release. Trial and error will release the right ones first. Some are hidden under or on opening covers so keep looking. Use damp rag to clean. If you have no experience with this type of thing I would suggest going to a canon repair shop.
