The printer says error code 6c10, then to turn on and off, and if problem persists to look in the manual. Can't find the manual, this happened after I have changed the black ink cartilage. My printer is the canon mx860.

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

Whenever i turn on the printer i get a error 6C10


This error is related to the ink absorber/waste ink tank located internally in the printer. Normally you would have to send your Canon to be serviced to resolve this problem, but there is a video turotial on YouTube that shows how to reset this error: Canon MP550 Ink Absorber Reset (6C10 Error Code) - YouTube

MG8120 6C10 error


The error code indicates an issue with the purge unit.
This usually requires a repair\service of the unit.

first of all please turn off the unit....unplug the power cable
now remove the cartridge...manually slide the carriage assembly\ printhead back and forth
also clean the rail against which the assembly slides with a tissue ensuring that there is no ink residue on it
clean the golden contacts of the cartridges and the printhead with a cotton swab dipped in little alcohol
once these steps have been done follow the below steps as well
manually move the printhead to far left
on the far right there is a little white plastic tab that is spring loaded
just check that if its not getting jammed
push the tab towards the front of the printer
once done just turn on and check the status

in case still the issue persists and you get the same error code, then it is an issue with the purge unit.. if the unit is within warranty cover please contact Canon and get the unit serviced...if not, you need to contact a repair tech for physical replacement of the part..however, my personal suggestion is that a repair will not be cost effective

It wont print


Double check that the error isn't 6C10. I also thought I had an 8C10 error also and that's how I found your unanswered question! But I couldn't find any other internet reference to 8C10 but I did find a YouTube fix for a 6C10 error message. So I got my reading glasses and looked again. Sure enough it was a 6C10 error! I followed the instructions for the 6C10 error fix (resetting Ink Absorber Reset) and my printer is now functioning. Bonus note: My printer is a MP620 and the reset was for a MP550. Same error number though! and also same solution. By now your printer has probably crossed that printer rainbow bridge... but hopefully someone else will need your help? With my reset, I am going to run my $$$ ink cartridges out instead of maintenancing the absorber and then toss mine as well!

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:

2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (ON/OFF button), or Alarm LED Lit in Orange)

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.

  • First do printer off
  • Press and hold resume Button & click Power button. By doing this green led should be on
  • While holding the Power button,release the Resume Button
  • Without releasing the Power Button, click Resume button for 2 times and then release both Buttons.
  • Now Click Resume for 4 times then soon click Power button,to confirm the selected action reset counter absorber
  • At the end turn off the printer and turn on again

I have a Canon PIxma MP620 and am getting the Error code 6C10. I've tried many of the suggested 'fixes' listed but so far no luck. I did do some scanning recently, but now even when I move the printer head...


This seems to work with many Canon models and is worth an attempt on your printer.


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

Canon PIXMA IP3600 Service error 6C10, and doesnn't print at all


Try keeping the paper only in the bottom tray (there's a tray in the bottom) Try pulling any paper out of the top and just close that top tray. Open up the head so that u can see the ink cartridges and turn the printer on and off and maybe it will center itself again. If it's still not working (even if lights aren't red and print head wont align in the center) try manually moving the head back and forth like 18 times so you can lubricate that rail in the back that's holding it. After that, re-turn it off and on again.
