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.

SOURCE: Canon pixma all in one mp500 error code 6A00

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.

I have a canon MP550 which has thrown up the error 6C10. I have tried the solutions suggested at FixYa, but to no avail. My printer's only 6 months old. Any suggestions? Regards Jan


It is my pleasure to guide you.


I have done some extensive research on your 'error 6C10'.


I have looked at the following:

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.

Error 5110


It's a carriage error, open your printer cover and look for obstructions. If you don't see anything, remove and reinstall your cartridges, both color and black.

Test the printer.

Hope this helps. Have a nice day!

Please rate me :)

Error 5110 showing on my mp500 printer from it being switched on, can't do anything with it


5110 is carriage lift mechanism error.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.
