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

SOURCE: Had paper jam. Now PIXMA IP5000 shows service

Print head might be stuck. Try opening the lid and sliding the cartridge tray over to the left. Check to make sure there is no piece of paper left jamming it. While you are at it, clean the base pad by dabbing with a piece of paper towel to remove excess ink. You may also want to remove the Print head itself and then reattach. Make sure there is no gunk buildup. Hope this helps.

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.

SOURCE: My canon ip1200 printer has stopped printing.

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

Error code 6A00


6A00 error on a Canon IP4200 is an AP Postion Error. This means one of three things. A problem with the sheet feeder, Logic board or the Purge Unit. Sadly these part are either working or not working and are difficult to repair. You could try resetting the EEPROM on the unit by entering service mode. A service manual will show you how to do that:
