Welp, I pulled out my screwdriver and fiddled around just a bit and got documents to feed again (yay!). I do not believe this is a permanent fix, though, but it was enough to get my document scanned in without me having to feed each sheet manually.

Step 1: Open the document feeder cover. Easy to do, you just stick your hand under it and lift up. It has a little pressure because of the latch but it is designed to give way when you lift hard enough. Once it's open, pull out the little black plastic piece that keeps the cover from swinging all the way open.

Step 2: Unscrew the ADF motor/gear assembly cover. There's a single screw holding it in. Once you unscrew it, you'll need to pull up on the left side of the cover until it pops upward, then you need to push the cover towards the left until it is freed up from the rest of the cover. This one was a little tricky. Several times I thought I might break it (before I realized that I needed to push the cover towards the left) so try not to apply unreasonable force while you're doing this.

Step 3: Close the document feeder cover, put your documents in the feeder and start your scan. Use your fingers to fiddle with the gears while the ADF motor is running and trying to feed documents. I'm not sure if I flicked the little gear upward or downward to get the documents to feed, but one of those ways got the documents to start feeding. Once it started feeding the first page, it seemed to work well for the rest of the pages without me having to fiddle with it anymore.

I am guessing that there is some level that controls the location of the middle gear that needs to be oiled, but I didn't go any further to try and make that happen. Hence this is probably just a temporary fix for now.

Putting it back together is pretty straightforward. Just do the reverse of what you did to get it open.

Hope this helps someone!

Hi!

The U052 error means that the 'chip' fitted to the Cartridge is not responding . They fit these chips to try to prevent refilling or using a 'compatible' replacement cartridge

You have to move the chip from the Canon cartridge to the 'compatible' and the chips are particularly sensitive to static / damage. Many people end up blowing the chips during the swap over

Please rate this solution.
Thanks

Hi there

This answers 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.
Incidentally, the 6A00 error pertains to all Canon printers made in the last several years, its not just used in one model.

And it’s always a paper path error or purge unit.

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 where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.

Also clean the purge unit out make sure all is clean.


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.

Someone, somewhere, suggested removing the cartridges and then the printer head, putting them back, and unplugging and then rebooting the printer. I do believe this has solved my problem. I had been living with the horrid grinding sound for many months, and now it is gone. I am crossing my fingers that this will last, because otherwise it's been a great all-in-one.

use a lint free cloth with a touch of rubbing alcohol or buy a tin of dust-off. The glass is nothing more than glass so don't be afraid of keeping it clean. You just need to be careful not to use anything that can scratch the surface. Be sure to leave the lid open to allow it to dry before scanning.

There is not an easy fix for this sadly. "Head temperature sensor rank" is typically a case of calling a technician or chucking it in the bin depending on how much the printer is worth to you.

I would do all of the following and see if yo can clear this code. It is not on any Canon list of possible codes, so I have no idea what it means., but let's do this:
Turn off the printer and unplug it. Remove the print cartridges. Look at them, are they leak free? Look into the cartridge holders. Are they clean?. Dried ink or blobs should be cleaned off with a little alcohol and a Qtip.
Are the little wire holders bent or broken? Do they look exactly the same?
Turn the printer back on reinstall the cartridges.Check in your printer preferences/services and clean your cartridges. Turn the printer back on reinstall the cartridges.Check in your printer preferences/services and clean your cartridges.
Now turn it off again and unplug it. Open the paper jam door and gently push the paper roller forward until it clicks. At the same time, look for even the tiniest scrap of anything in there. Close the paper jam door and plug your printer back in. Restart your computer.
If the problem is not solved. You may need to reinstall the printer. Do You have your original disc? Be sure to do a clean install. ( Turn off all running programs in the lower right corner including your virus control. Also go to Toolbar>tools>internet options>general>and delete all you cookies and temporary internet files.) Turn off and unplug your printer.
Reinstall the software. When it is finished if it has not told you to plug your print back in do so now. Restart your computer and turn your printer on.
I hope this helps. Good luck to you.

The spot in which the paper is fed into could have a fence/blocker. Use wood or a little hunk of aluminum to only allow 1 sheet. You could get fandy and use a rod that could also be mounted on the font.Be crea8tive and good luck.
