My printer is printing all the images 'shifted', almost as if the paper is being moved up and down slighty as it is printing, such that type is going up and down and images looked 'stepped'. This especially seems to happen with the magenta. I've tried cleaning and deep cleaning (which cleared up some of the smudging; now it prints clearly, but shifted...), and I've tried aligning the heads, both auto and manually to no avail. I've tried printing files from different applications (Quark, PSD, PDF) and they are all the same.
Would this have anything to do with my refilling cartridges too often? Do I need to get all new, Canon ink refills?

You might want to double check to make sure that your printer takes two color cartridges? If I remember correctly, the Pixma takes one black and one color cartridge? If you put a color cartridge in the black ink assembly that would cause it to stop printing.
Double check and make sure that you have one black cartridge in the correct place and one color on the other side.
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.
