    Fix for Canon Printer Error 6A80 in Mac?

    Trying to print with my Canon Printer which recently I synced with my Mac but it just gives the error message as 6A80. What might be the reason behind this error? Have anyone came across the same before? Kindly provide me the information to resolve it soon as possible. Thanks.

    Just try to follow the below mentioned workaround to resolve the issue in your Mac soon,

    STEP 1: Switch off your printer completely.

    STEP 2: Now hold the four buttons 1) Black Photocopy button 2) Red Cancel button 3) Ok button 4) On/Off button for around 5-10 seconds.

    STEP 3: Now release only the on/off button.

    STEP 4: Release all the other buttons once the printer gets started again.

    STEP 5: Now try to print from your Mac which should be working fine without any issues.

    :: First you need to check the printer whether is connecting properly to the system or not.

    :: Try to add again the printer device and for that open the preference tap and search the
    Canon Printer under the printer option. Now try to delete and then add the printer again.

    :: Then try to restart the Mac system and then Check it is working or not

    :: If not then disconnect the printer and then reset the printing system and for that you need to trash

    the folder Canon Printer.

    :: Then connect the printer again and check it is working or not.
