I can't tell you specifically what you should do to try and repair your printer, but I do have one suggestion, a link to a Service Manual and a probable reason why a service tech wants to charge you so much for a repair. If you look in the service manual, here is what it says regarding error 6000: ------------------------ Line feed error [6000] Solution (Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Timing sensor unit (QM2-2683) - Timing slit disk film (QC1-6229) - Feed roller ass'y (QL2-0925) - Platen unit (QM2-2202) - Logic board ass'y (QM2-2670)*1 - PAPER FEED MOTOR (QK1-1502) ------------------------ In other words, somebody looked in the book and quoted you a price to replace all these parts. One very common problem for printers is that the paper feed rollers develop a slick surface and don't grip the way they are supposed to. If you're experiencing a paper-feed problem, you can try buffing the rubber feed rollers lightly with fine sandpaper to help them grip once again like they should. (I've repaired many printers doing nothing more than this.) Below is a link to the Service Manual for your printer. Hope this helps.

Hope this helps
With thanks to a canon tech 
Ok Well again I will repeat this answer with a titch more detail.
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam. Some where in the paper path a sensor is activated indicating paper jam so the printer will give off a 6A00 code. As a Canon tech, I usually find the code, almost 90% of the time, is related to the purge unit being jammed with something and not being able to move. 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. And yes I have found all those things in a purge unit. The offending item needs to be removed or the purge unit needs replacement. A Pixma MP830 would still be under Canon warranty, get it into a shop and save yourself the hassel. 
Incidently, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model. And its always a paper path error or purge unit.
I forget myself so here goes, the purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, lexmark, and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing. That is why you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it. It also has a an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

I got an error with my canon ip1900 it says "paper jammed" i press Resume but nothings happen it's just repeating the error "paper jammed" what i need to do?

You need to open the printer and remove any piece of paper no matter how small. This can be causeed by even a small sliver of paper or even paper dust. It can also be the paper sensor but thats very uncommon.

Take the paper out fan and restack it. Then open up the printer and clean it as best you can. Put everything back in and close it up and you should be printing.

What does error 6000 mean on Canon MP630? It keeps telling me it's printing then the paper runs through without anything being printed on it. Thanks for any help.

Error 6000; Fehler 6000.

"Error 6000 is a mechanical problem of paper-input." (Hotline)
Remove paper-tray and check the rail inside as deep as you can see. (look for stuff!) Then try again. All other atempts are hopeless and send it to service.

Ich habe die abstrusesten Antworten im Net gelesen:
z.B. "Fehler 6000 bedeutet, dass die maximale Anzahl der Drucke erreicht ist und das Gerät wegzuschmeißen ist!"
Ich habe beim Service angerufen. Die meinten, es liegt ein mechanischer Fehler im internen Papiereinzug vor.
Das Gerät muss eingeschickt werden. Reparatur von eigener Hand aus nicht möglich.
Papiereinzug? Ich habe dann die Schublade einmal ganz rausgezogen und nach Störteilen auf der Schubladenbahn gesucht.(und gefunden!) Tatsächlich ging die Schublade danach sehr leicht wieder rein und der Drucker lief wieder. Alle anderen Recherchen sind m.E. vertane Zeitverschwendung!
