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.

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.

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

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!

6C10 error cannon printer MP640


This error could appear on these Canon Pixma printers: MP110, MP540, MP630, MP620, MP640, IP3600...

Solution 1:
  • Move the printhead to the center.
  • Disconnect the printer and check on the right: is the purge unit ok ? No peace of paper ?

Solution 2:
  • Do a reset of 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.

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.

It's a canon mp550 - when I start to print he gives de error 6C10 - en I must put the printer off ans on - but after 20 times he still gives this error.


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
