Canon Printer Error 6000


You are unable to print and receive the message Error 6000 on the computer or printer display screen.


When experiencing this error it has been the result of a deep paper jam with pins, paper or other miscellaneous objects.


If you are unable to resolve this yourself then you should have it repaired by the provider or manufacturer.


    1. The only way is to remove the inks and then turn the printer upside down if nothing falls out then the jam itself could be one of two things, one it could be a false jam and not exist and the printer will need to be repaired at a service centre or two the object causing the jam is trapped and will again need to be repaired. Hope this helps, I would not shake or hit the printer as this can dislodge internal workings of the printer and cause more damage.

  1. I had the same problem and it was this simple: there was something blocking the automatically opening door of the printer. Removed the obstacle and it works fine.

  2. Removing ink and turning upside down worked, even tho didn’t see anything fall out. Thanks!

  3. Removing the ink and turning it upside down worked for me too, Thanks Satu Taylor!!!!! Saved me a BUNCH!!!!

  4. I had this now. Lego part of my kid block the roller to move on.
    I removed the lego part, and now it is working well

  5. In desperation I turned upside down and shook the printer violently – it worked!! tiny sliver of photo paper fell out.
    Printer seem ok now. Thanks for advice.
