Error code 6A00 indicates an error occurred in the AP motor during purging operation. You need to replace sheet feed unit, logic board assy and purge unit to fix it. Before replacement of the logic board assy, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or more, also replace the ink absorber kit when replacing the logic board assy.

Copy and Alarm Button Flashing


Regarding your Pixma MP830 printer inquiry (Canon PGI-5 / CLI-8 ink cartridges) and A200 error message, most likely the built-in PRINTHEAD is reaching it's end-of-life and may need to be replaced with a new one. Typically, the average printhead only produces ~4000 to 5000 pages before it electrically fails.
For information on PRINTHEAD failures, please refer to our support page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=2934

However, let's run thru the full checklist to screen out additional variables:

Canon A200 Error, Troubleshooting:

Replace ink cartridges if they are empty:
At the risk of stating the obvious (frequently not so obvious in the heat of the moment), find out if the ink cartridges are empty. When in doubt, try a new Canon original ink cartridge to see if this corrects the error.


A data cable of print head is open:
Did you just replace an ink cartridge? Perhaps you shifted a data cable to the print head.


Replace PRINTHEAD if it is damaged. Refer to Canon.com for replacement part.


Turn off the printer for some time

In other troubleshooting tips we have advised any inkjet printer not seeing regular usage to run a test print page. If you are making heavy usage of a Canon inkjet printer, consider giving it a break. This will avoid saturating the printhead with heat, prolonging useful service life.


Update the printer driver:

If you have followed all this with no success, from the printer menu (not computer) push the buttons to get a demo or test page. If everything is ok when you do this, however you get the service error code A200 when you try to produce something productive, odds are good, the print driver the computer is using has gone south (corrupt). When printing on a network, a corrupt printer driver can spread like an unwanted virus. Depending on the network, a driver that has gone rogue may be seen as an updated driver, which network will 'helpfully spread' as an update.

CAUTION: Be advised, the use of compatible/clone cartridges (i.e. sold thru the internet from China) are known to be problematic and may cause printer errors and/or permanent PRINTHEAD failures. We do NOT suggest refilling these types of ink cartridges.....refilling of original/genuine ink cartridges is only suggested!

-----------------

However, if your printer works routinely after inserting a brand new Canon OEM (original) PGI-5 and CLI-8 ink cartridge(s) in it, this will confirm the cause of failure.

Won't scan. alarm light is on say's out of ink but has been refilled all buttons when pushed dubble beep.


Your refilled cartridge didn't get the ink level chip reset. Your printer will refuse to print, scan, copy, etc.. until you replace the cartridge that's "empty." I would return the cartridge to the refiller you purchased it from and buy a refill from Cartridge World. These simple problems do not happen with Cartridge World refills.

If the ink was refilled, you need to reset or get a new chip for the cartridge. If it is a new Canon ink they will exchange it. Sometimes the pins in the carriage get bent and then they can't read the chip on the cartridge.

The alarm button is flashing and have service error messages for the following: 5C10, 6A00,5C00


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 mp530 getting error message 6a00


HI Guys 6A00 error usually cant't be fixed according to the service centre, I was lucky and actually bought an extended warranty, the service centre said that the MP530 are a good printer and worth fixing as they don't see many at all compared to other models and other brands. There was a broken piece of hardware that something to do with the print carriage. cheers vailey

Alarm light on, Display indicates error message: Check Ink U150 M


I added my post today with the same problem, and thought I'd share what I since learned. Apparently this "Alarm light/U150" is common with several Canon models. The U150 indicates a faulty electronic chip (on the ink cartridge). Though I tried cleaning the sensor with isopropyl alcohol, and also tried removing all the cartridges, unplugging the printer for 45 seconds, then reconnecting,etc. as I had read might help, I still had the same frustrating problem. Contacting Canon was the solution that worked for me. First I emailed, but decided I didn't want to wait for their response. A call to Canon Tech Support (1-800-385-2155) was quick and painless. They will more than likely send you a new cartridge, but you'll need to have your serial # & date of purchase handy.

AP position error [6A00] the Sheetfeed unit or the main logic board has failed need to purge unit. Give it a good tank cleaning, possibly replace cartridges. Is it still under warranty? Have you contacted Canon?
