Hi ,

Welcome to JustAnswer

try this

switch off the printer and unplug it. lift the lid and move the cartridges over to the left out of the way. Using a damp cloth wipe all around where the cartridges normally rest. Put the lid down plugged in and switch it on

if that doesn't work then


Try cleaning the sponges.

The “sponges” are 2 hard pieces of absorbing plastic or something of the like. The "sponges" are located on the right under where the ink cartridge carrier "rests". Usually because of so much ink , it will be dark

use a pen tip popped both “sponges” out and rinsed them with water and check that they were once again white.

Try this and let me know

Thanks
Shidhin

The space is so limited to try and do what you ask I really can't locate the plastic sponges you suggested I remove and clean, what I tried to do is clean as much ink from the area below where the cartridge carrier sets with cotton swabs. Still have the error code 6A00. Any other ideas?
