Resetting the waste ink absorber on a Canon printer can resolve some error codes that appear when turning it on.

  1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
  2. Press and hold the Resume button (triangle inside a circle).
  3. Whilst it is held down, hold down the Power button. The green led light should come on.
  4. Keep the Power button held down. Release the Resume button and then press it twice. The light should go amber, then green again.
  5. Release the Power button.
  6. Press the Resume button four times and then press the Power button straight after to confirm the selected action (Reset Counter Absorber).
  7. Turn off the printer and then turn it on again

I have a canon printer MP550. It was working ok untill I chenged the yellow ink. I did everything alright but now when I want to print it gives me error 6C10. I tried to buy another yellow but does not...


It's probably a waste absorber issue.

A fix from FixYa Support:

1. Start with printer off
2. Press and hold resume Button (triangle in the circle) and click "Power" button. Green led should be on
3. While holding the Power button, release the Resume Button.
4. Without releasing the Power Button, click "Resume" button for two times and release Both Buttons.
5. Click "Resume" for four times then soon click "Power" button, to confirm the selected action (reset counter absorber).
6. Turn off the printer and turn on again

  2. Unzip downloaded file by WinZip, 7Zip, Izarc, etc
  3. Run GeneralTool.exe
  4. Select the connected USB port number from USB PORT
  5. Click LOCK RELEASE, and select the applicable model name in SET DESTINATION
  6. In CLEAR WASTE INK COUNTER, select MAIN or PLATEN. The selectedwaste ink counter will be reset. MAIN resets the main waste inkcounter, PLATEN resets the platen waste ink counter.
