Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by

Tips for a great answer:
Waste ink full reset
These are the instructions which worked for me on my Canon pixma mp470:
1) Close the print head cover, and turn off the printer. While pressing the Resume/Cancel button, press the Power button. (Do not release the buttons. The LED lights in green to indicate that a function is selectable.)
2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)
3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.
4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)
5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)
6) Power off then back on and test.
It is my pleasure to guide you.
I have done some extensive research on your 'error 6C10'.
I have looked at the following:
PIXMA MP500 Printer
Canon Pixma MP500 Service Manual
2-2. Service Call Errors (by Cyclic Blinking in Orange (Alarm LED) and Green (ON/OFF button), or Alarm LED Lit in Orange)
Cycles of blinking in orange (Alarm LED) and green (ON/OFF button) 16 times
Error [Error code] Valve sensor error [6C00]
Conditions An error occurred in the valve sensor during cleaning.
Solution(Replacement of listed parts, which are likely to be faulty) - Logic board ***'y (QM2-3078)
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.
