    I get Error code 6A00 whenever I try to print. I turned the printer off and turned it back on and still got the error code. I tried moving the printer head back and forth, which worked once -- for a while. Now the code has come back up and the former solution isn't working.

There is a device that slides back and forth and acts like a window cleaners on the printhead.When this printer is off the printer head can be tilt sidewise freely by hand which allow easy access to the mentioned cleaner sponge tab located below the head in its docking position. The mechanism that drives the sliding squeegie relies on a spring for it to return. The spring sometimes isn't strong enough to over come the gluey ink and so the whole thing jammed up which is probably what the code means - jammed mechanism. Try cleaning this mechanism and carefully moving it.

Erro 6A00

Hi,
The 6A00 is a Canon code for paper path jam. In the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 .
The purge unit is stuck and not able to move freely .Move the purge unit back and forth for around 10 times and then restart printer ,it should work fine .
If you still get the error code then purge unit needs replacement.

Hope this helps .

Canon pixma mp800 error code 6A00

6A00 means you need a new purge assembly. That's the unit that cleans the printhead. Part number is QM2-3032-000 around $30.00 but a shop should install it.
