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
Regards GM

    This did not work Grant. Is the resume button on an MX870 also the "Stop" button? Its the only one with triangle in a circle.

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!

Canon printer 6c10 error


Did you try IPA to clean the absorber then leave it to dry COMPLETELY. Also some printers have a small electrical connection to detect when the absorber is at capacity, check these contacts.

Error 6C10 cannon pixma MG6170 Problem


This appears to be the " absorber full error message".
This message is never due to the operating system, from what I read.
This is a hardware error.
I am afraid I was not able to dig up a direct solution to this answer. The manufacturer (Cannon) requests you have one of their repairmen come to repair it.
This link is to another 6c10 error problem, perhaps it can help you.
