Question about Canon Pixma MP500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This could be the problem - Take out your catridges and slide the cart over towards the left a bit. You will need a little mirror for this. Look through the rectangular cutouts at the bottom of the carriage, and find what looks like 2 very tiny black sensors. I think these pick up the lights from the LEDs in the cartridge, and I spilt ink on these while refilling my carts. Take a cotton bud and clean these off. As soon as I did this the error went away and printer is 100% OK again. (This was an MP530 - but should be similar) Cheers.

6A00 is a problem with the sheet feed unit.
Manually move the print head left and right, and turn the printer on/off. I would also inspect the rollers for ANY debris... it can often be fixed by using "canned air" and blowing the interior out completely.

It is my pleasure to guide you.
I have done some extensive research on your 'error 6C10'.
I have looked at the following:
PIXMA MP500 Printer
Canon Pixma MP500 Service Manual
2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (ON/OFF button), or Alarm LED Lit in Orange)
Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (ON/OFF button) 16 times
Error [Error code] Valve sensor error [6C00]
Conditions An error occurred in the valve sensor during cleaning.
Solution(Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y (QM2-3078)
I realize that the '6C00' error is not exactly your but the manual does not have the 6C10. You can download that at the above link.
I also look at the http://www.retrevo.com/support/Canon-MP500-Multifunction-Printers-manual/id/259bh640/t/2/ Canon Pixma MP500 Users Guide Manual. There are several codes but not the 6C10. You can download this above as well.
Good luck and please post back that you are successful, giving thumbs up, or if I can be more helpful.
