SOURCE: Hi there , my canon MP630 has all of a sudden 6c10 error ?

That error says that either something is jammed in the purge assembly, the unit on the right that cleans the printhead, or the purge assembly is stuck or broken. If you unplug the printer with the carriage in the center you can use a flashlight to inspect the area on the far right where the printhead parks.

You have a "Valve Cam sensor error". Usually caused by paper debris inside the printer, probably near the purge unit.

Have a ggod look inside and see if you can see any bits of paper.

The above suggestion worked short term, but in about a couple of hours, I'd get the same old error code again. Finally, I found a solution that worked for my MX860 on fixya.com written by "pineworks". The link is as follows: http://www.fixya.com/support/t4097826-aborber_full_error_message

Don't know if you've found an answer to this problem yet, but I had the same issue for about three months. Finally, I found a solution that worked for my MX860 on fixya.com written by "pineworks". The link is as follows: http://www.fixya.com/support/t4097826-aborber_full_error_message

For months, I've had to power off, disconnect from computer, and power on again to kick-start the printing. It was driving me crazy. So far, "pineworks" solution has been a permanent one. Been about a week and have had no problems yet.

SOURCE: 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.

I'm getting an error message when trying to print


Error 6C10 appears on certain Canon printers. It is a "valve cam sensor error". Here are some things to try to fix it:

Solution 1:
  • Move the printhead to the center.
  • Disconnect the printer and check on the right: is the purge unit ok? Is there a paper jam or piece of paper stuck in it?
Solution 2:
  • Do a reset of the printer by performing the following:
    • Turn the printer Power ON
    • Hold down the "Resume" button (triangle in a circle) for 15 to 20 seconds.
Solution 3:
  • Power off the printer.
  • Open the door.
  • Power on.
  • When the cartridge is in the center, close the door.
Solution 4:
  • Open the lid and allow the ink cartridge carrier to center itself.
  • Looking to the right, you will see a row of white rollers behind the carrier.
  • At the end of the rollers there is a small, clear piece of plastic that sticks up. Take a small piece of a paper towel and wipe all of the ink off this piece of plastic. When that is clean move on to the ink pad.
  • About 1 inch, towards the front of the printer from that piece of plastic, is a small square, about 1/2 inch per side, that is a small foam pad. This is where the excess ink is collected.
  • Take a piece of paper towel and press into the foam. Do this until the paper towel is no longer collecting ink. Close the lid, turn off the printer then turn it back on.
Solution 5:
Solution 6:
  • Remove case and look for the micro switch that is being pressed by one of the purge unit cams. Clean the switch and the cams. If the problem does not clear, replace the micro switch.

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!

Error 6C10 keeps coming up on my Cannon Prixma ip3600 and it will not print. I had a look at a few other blog posts and tried a reset using the power and reset button, but no koy. Any ideas?


6C10 error (valve cam sensor error) is a mechanical problem in the purge unit area where the valve cam sensor is located (on the purge unit just behind the power switch button). On my experience, the movable gear assembly (with spring on top) can't move downward to move the other gear that is connected to the valve cam therefore the sensor is not sensing any movements.

Solution:
1. Open the entire top cover.
2. Locate the purge unit (the area where the ink carriage rests when not in use).
3. Move the carriage to the middle of the printer to access the purge unit.
4. Try to gently move the gear assembly downward using your finger or a screw driver to loosen the stuck gear.
5. Turn on the printer to test.

I am getting a 6C10 Error on a Canon MX882 printer


This is a valve cam sensor error. Whats that you wonder? Well power up the printer and when you hear the motor start up ,pull out the mains plug. Open the main cover so you can see the printers engine. The carriage is where the printhead is and thats where you put the ink tanks. Slide the carriage all the way to the left. At the right end (where it normally parks) is the purge unit. This is where the valve cam sensor sits. I suspect you will find a lump on very inky paper sitting ontop of the purge unit. Remove it or whatever you find clogging it up and hopefully all will be well.

Good luck

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.

6c10 error on my canon mp630. There does not appear to be any paper debris and I have been turning the rotten thing off and on for weeks now to get it to work


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
