I can print from my computer but I cannot scan, fax, or copy. The only lights on the printer that light up is the Alarm light. I do not know whether my printer is on or off. not sure what the problem is. I can press the power button and it starts to make noise but I cannot see anything in the display.

SOURCE: Error code 6A00, alarm light flashing, no copy, print or fax function working

I had the fatal 6A00 error on my out-of-warranty MP830 and I was ready to give up and buy a different printer. Per Canon website it says that you need to send it for repairs.

Goggling the error message, I was able to find a solution to this error that doesn't require sending the unit to Canon. . The problem apparently is related to the purge unit located at the far right side on where the printhead moves back and forth.

Based on the postings, there appears to be three common problems that causes the error, which is related to a paper jam error. 1) If its a new printer or even an older one, there are two sponges that collect ink and two plastic wipers located in purge unit may be loose or missing. Check to see if its it there. If not, it may actually be stuck somewhere. 2) there may some paper stuck somewhere around the printhead and or the purge unit or 3) there is a build up of gooey ink on the purge unit.

The gooey ink turned out to be my problem and apparently quite a few others. Following someone else's advice, I turned off the printer & unplugged it, move the printhead to the left and used long Qtips with Windex to clean up the ink around the purge unit including a little white plastic spring-loaded lever. I also dampen the sponges with Windex. If you do this be careful not to dislodge the sponge or wipers. If you do, you can alway stick the pieces back in. After cleaning it, and checking the sponges and wipers are seated correctly, I plug the unit back in and worked fine. Problem solved!

I can't send faxes on my Canon Pixma MP530 on digital phone line


They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:

Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.

You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

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
