Question about Canon PIXMA iP3000 InkJet Photo Printer

Error 6B00 On the iP3000, I received this error which says, "A problem has occurred with the printer mechanism". All I did was move it from one room to another and everything is hooked up the same. What went wrong?

A JWalker posted on April 17, 2007, it is the "squeegie" thing.
This is located on the right side (as you face the printer) and is held by a little white plastic holder with a spring attached to it.
The round track seemed to be mucked up with ink. If the squeegie is closest to the front of the printer, gently move it towards the rear with a pencil tip. I used the eraser end and some tissue to make a large Q-Tip, loaded it with windex and wiped down the round track and it works again.
Note; When moving the squeegie towards the rear, it will clear the mucking and the spring will take over and move it to the proper position allowing cleaning of the rail.

Same problem error 6A00: The head cleaning process leaves ink to dry on plastic small parts in the area where the heads park and may cause some mechanism to stick if printer left unused for some time. Try to move carefully on everything you find in the area after moving the heads away. I just did this, something went click, and the printer is good as new again. Problem now is my inex finger is black with printer ink...

Hey anyone who is in denial! I have a Canon Pixma ip300 and i previously had a Service Error 6b00. I had no idea what I was doing, so I cleaned out the strip along the bottom where that little thing that holds the ink is. Also I put down the little door (for faxes??) with the logo Canon on it with the printer cover open. I then pushed down the thing that holds the ink at the same time. I fiddle with the door/ink holder than turned the printer off/on, then I shut the little door and pressed resume... and it printed!! Hoorayy! Hope this helps. Pardon my bad "computer speech"

I also have an Ip3000 which has performed very well for a few years. Yesterday it came up with Error 6A00 and would not work. Canon will not tell you what the code means but my local exasperated (Yes they have trouble with Canon too! ) told me it was a 'paper path error' and it would cost A$200 to fix it when the printers cost less than that new. I pulled the casing off it ( unneccessary ) and discovered ink soaked paper rubbish under the place where the print head parks. I removed it all carefully and my Ip3000 and I are friends again. I have used all types of generic ink tanks and they all work well. I like the printer but I am deeply resentful of the way manufacturers manipulate the public in this way.

Canon PIXMA IP3000 ERROR 5100 i receive this code error, ¿how can i fix it?


Try
Solution 1:
Clean the timing strip.

Solution 2:
The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.
Hope it works for you: Pineworks

how many blinks do you see in the led indicator? if it is 5 blinks then the problem is the printhead. if it is 2 blinks, then problem is in the feeding mechanism. if the problem is the later, then you might have to bring the unit to an authorize service center to have it checked.

Canon Computer Pixma printer ip3000


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.
