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

The solution i have found for this is to remov the print head and clean it manually with a Q-tip and either rubbing alcohol or commercial degreaser (depending on what you have available). This error is caused by ink sticking to the print head due to irregular cleaning of it.
1. Get your printer so that it is at the "home" screen. To do this you may have to follow the procedure at http://www.fixya.com/support/t5998845-error_code_6c10_mean
2. Open the lid of your printer and remove the ink cartridges, carefully placing them upside down on a surface you don't mind possibly dirty-ing up a bit.
3.. Remove the Print Head. This can be done by flipping up the grey arm that closest to you on the head assembly. Once the arm is pppped up, remove the print head itself (the black object towards the back of the assembly.
5: on the bottom of the print head that you have just removed, use a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol / degreaser to clean the ink off of it. Be careful not to put to much pressure on anything.
6. Throw it all back together and you should be good to go.

I'm getting the error message 6C10. What is going on?


This error seems to be related to the Ink Absorber being full, this runs of a counter and not off the actual amount if ink, so re-setting it once or twice should be fine. Try this method below.I found this solution from another user on FixYa.
  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
I hope this helps, If so please rate this response Thank you for supporting the Fix-Ya Community

MX870 Error 6C10


I installed a Canon MX870, Winxp SP2, I also have a stand alone Canon printer I550, and HP Scanjet 5370C, a wireless modem, all of these units are usb hookups. The computer takes almost 5 minutes to boot up when the canon MX870 is installed. It lockes up My Computer, Explorer.Exe. It finally comes in but why so long? I was afraid to buy an all-in-one unit and now maybe I wish I didn't. I removed the Canon MX870 and the computer works great. Can anyone help?

Just purchased, refurbished, Canon MX870 printer is giving me a 6c10 error...how do I clear the error?


Try to follow these steps:
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.
hope it will solve the issue, do rate the solution if got help

Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Printer works with Snow Leopard OS?


The MX870 is compatible with Mac OS X, all versions. I think the CD that comes with the unit will have the Mac Snow Leopard drivers on it, but if not you will be able to download them here.
