    Problems solved thankyou.
    It looks like the print heads need to dip down into the small sponges underneath the white plate at the end of the start motions.
    If the white sliding bit with spring does not move out of the way the heads can’t dip all the way down.
    Before I found this solution I have read about other problems like rubbish on the sponges or the sponges being displaced.
    I just moved the white plate back and forwards and all cured.

    Thank you so much. Works with Canon MP610….

    Thanks for the solution. Just want to add that after I turned my printer back on, the printer took several minutes to reposition itself and I could hear something moving every few seconds. After you turn the printer back on, you may just want to leave it alone and wait for 5-10 minutes before trying to print anything.

  21. David says:

    I have a canon ip4300 with the error 6A00

    The picture was unclear to me until i pressed randoms things and discovered what the picture was trying to tell me.


    where the arrow is, there should be two rectangular ink pads the one on the left longer then the one on the right, the one on the right has a white plastic square above it. press down on that. then turn on printer, and everything should be a-ok 🙂

    hope that helped 🙂

  22. Marco says:

    GREAT!!! This was the solution for my ip5200r problem! Just bought some new cartridges and errror code. After studying the photo a saw the problem and solved it. Above the ink stuff resevoir(long one and rectangle one) there was a white plastic L shaped thing that was overlapping the ink reservoir. I pushed it back and bingo!

    David if you are still having a problem I will be looking for a reaction in this blog. Leave your email so I can help you!

    Hi Marco,
    I’ve been having the same problem on and off for a few months. Ran across this fix on another site. Its been working up till now. but now the sponge holder stays up and the wiper slider seems to be forward and hanging up the sponge holder.
    I puch the wiper back and the sponge holder drops down. Even tried pushing the wiper back and forth many times to free it up, but it keeps getting stuck with the sponge holder and giving the A600 errror code. I dont know why they made this this way. I’ve had two canons but never again. It lasts till the warranty then messes up. They’ve lost me for sure. cause the don’t stand behind theyre product even knowing this problem. Do you have any more detail or ideas to fix this. thanks, ed

  30. Manuel says:

    Great Marco!!, easy, fast and cheap solution. I thought that I would have to buy the new one.
    Thank you very much.

  31. carlos says:

    I have owned an MP830 for about 5 years with constant use and never had an issue. Until recently. I started to get the Error code 6A00. I tried it all until you illustration and now Its worked . It looks like the Ink droplets builds up along the track and creates a gunk in that inner white moving part. Which then prevents it from moving during the start up mode. I think it comming close to upgrading to a new wireless system anyways. Kudos !

  32. Maureen Crisp says:

    Ola, Manuel Carlos!

    We are having the same problem! Have located the “white thing” but the spring has dropped off it. We need to take off the whole of the top part of the machine to access the area, but cannot see how the top comes off. Can you describe how to take off the top of the machine?

    With thanks – Peter and Maureen Crisp.

  33. Henrik (Denmark) says:

    Hi there,
