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.

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.

Error 6A00 mp500 canon

6A00 is a purge unit error, the station that cleans the printhead on the right hand side. Usually the wiper is jammed into the cleaning pads because of ink buildup. Water on a Q-tip can help clean that area or you may need a new purge assembly about $29.00

I got an error 6a00 what can i do on canon Pixma 530

Hi there.
6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit. Canon has had problems with this for a long time on the MP500, 530, 780 and other Pixma printers. I really hate putting this in writing and don't want to be sued, but Pixma printers are notorious for having more problems than they are worth. That being said, you won't like my answer. If your printer is not under warranty, you are out of luck. If it is still covered, go to canon's website (if you are in the U.S. the website is www.usa.canon.com) and they will send you a refurbished unit or a new print head. Or you can go to http://www.beckscrs.com and try that, too. Please let me know how you make out. I'm really sorry about your printer.

Error 6A00

I just had the same problem :( I dont have a true fix, but I slid out the cartridge to the left and back in. I read it had to do with a timing mark somewhere. When I powered it back up. It went back to normal
