Question about Canon PIXMA MP620 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hello, I have no idea what this error code means and can't find any detils anywhere. I have reinstalled, updated drivers, checked connections/ink/paper and everything I can think of.
Does anyone know where I can find a list of error codes, am getting no joy with user manuals/google etc.
Thanks in advance, Jon.
I got the same code on my ip3600, and stumbled across a quick fix which may work for yours.
1. Turn power off
2. Open cover as if you're going to change a cartridge
3. Turn power on
4. When printhead is in position to change cartridge, close the cover
That's all I did, and it seemed to work.

I figured it out. It has nothing to do with the above solutions (no offense). I came to this site and performed their suggestions with no luck. "A" for effort though. The problem is related to the scanner/ copier. When you use the scan or copy option, when you're done you have to turn off and on the printer and open and close the scanner lid. Then open the printer up and physically with your hands reset the print head (this means monkey with it until the red lights come back on and it's not all the way to the right in the printer). If you need to consult your manual, you will find more help under: "Troubleshooting, Print Head Holder Does Not Move to the Position for Replacing". This is verbatum from the manual. Did the trick.

Try to reset the printer --

The original printer port has stopped communicating and you would like to try reconfiguring the printer completely using the installation software.
You recently reformatted your computer's hard drive and reinstalled your operating system.
You are switching to an Ad hoc environment with different security settings.

Hey, solved it! I have had this problem before and it sux but unlike last time where we had to throw the printer away this time was fixable. I took the paper out of the top tray and put it all in the bottom tray. Then when it was opened I was pushing the cartridge back and forth back like 50 times to lubricate the rail. This seemed to work, unless it was the 9 or 10 restarts i did. (Mine had no lights on the ink cartridges and the printer wouldn't align to the middle)

For my Canon MG6100, I was getting the 6C10 error and the printer would not progress beyond startup. All of the other solutions for related Canon printers did not work, but I did learn that this error is sometimes related to the ink and the print head.
So I took the ink out, and while the power was off removed the print head and cleaned it (GENTLY!!!!) with a Q-tip, being extremely carefull not to touch the print nozels.
When I replaced the print head and then the ink, the printer worked just fine after I powered it on. Hope this lasts, and helps others that have this problem with the newer MG printers.
Whether it was the cleaning, or mearly removing and replacing the print head that solved the problem, I'll never know. But the printer is now "fixed", so I don't really care anymore.

I had this same problem, too. Tried to fix it for about three months and just had to do what "dmbeal" suggested. This would work for a temporary period of time, then back to Error 6C10 again.
I finally found a suggestion by "pineworks" that has solved it completely. Following is the link: http://www.fixya.com/support/t4097826-aborber_full_error_message
Thanks "pineworks"! This problem was driving me crazy.

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.
