    Thank You for sharing this service procedure with "regular users". I'm just asking myself how big is the waste ink absorber? My printer (MP540) is like new. Last week, I just replaced the original set of cartriges which has been depleted after the first three months of operation.

  • boxplay Sep 06, 2010

    Thank you! Options were to take to a service center or purchase a new printer. Was up and running in 6 steps!

  • greg910 Sep 10, 2010

    Thanks so much!!! This worked for me. I thought I'd have to take the printer in for service but after following these instructions it got my Canon MP640 unstuck from it's printing error 6C10.

  • jdholl40 Sep 12, 2010

    Tried this on my Canon MP640. Held down the two start buttons (black and color), as it doesn't appear to have a resume button. Followed the above directions exactly. It worked!

  • ckoleszar Nov 01, 2010

    Thank you! This fixed my Canon MX870 with the error 6C10.

  • njfenger Dec 07, 2010

    Thx, worked in the first try. But how can the display refere to the manual when the manual says nothing on the subject....
    Well I'm just glad its working :)

    Hi
    As I have seen most the ink waste is as big as 6 to 7 cm square and about the same in height and takes some time before it full; hope this helps.

  • atkinsonline Jan 13, 2011

    Thank you. This worked for me. I was ready to return my printer but I can now print a doc that was urgent.

    So far the notorious 6C10 has disappeared.

  • EsthervN Jan 13, 2011

    Thanks! This worked for me! Only thing is that when I turn the printer on again after a day or so, I get the same error and I have to repeat this procedure. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Any other tips?

  • atkinsonline Jan 13, 2011

    Thanks. This was the only to thing to fix my 6C10 error on my MP640

  • Philippe Desfontaine Jan 16, 2011

    Think for the last step, on my MP560 I had to click four times. The fourth time, I did not release the reset before clicking the power button,.

  • georgiebhoy Feb 01, 2011

    I have got the same problem in my mp640, I can get into service mode ok on the lcd screen, but when I press the resume button 4 times, nothing happens then the screen comes up on another line "Idle", no matter what combination of buttons I try , nothing happens on the screen, how do I reset the counter absorber please

  • thornz26 Feb 23, 2011

  • 1brcr1 Mar 06, 2011

    Hi. Not that clear when you say "click "Power" button"..then next step said holding power button...Well I just held power button and proceeded.........and it worked....nice to know there are people with knowledge on caring out real solutions--facing the factory saying "bring it in...WE have to fix it!!

  • kruegi Mar 21, 2011

    Thank you very much!!!
    No one had an idea what I have do to when the errror code 6C10 appears. My Canon MP620 is about 3 years old and there is no more guarantee. Your tip was saving me taking the printer to a service point or purchasing a new one.
    i had to do the procedure two times, but then it works.

    mr. pine you are the MAN. I was gonna buy another printer and router.
    this really works. thank you so much.

  • frangod Jul 07, 2011

    Many thanks. I thought I would have to pay almost the cost of a new printer to get this fixed at my local service centre. Another ploy by printer manufacturers to rid us of our money.

    It's a miracle! Thanks so much!
    After 10 months without using my MP540, now it show me error 6C10. I changed all inks (there are 5 of them), but the error persisted... Following the steps you mencioned, the machine began working properly again :) And it took me less than 1 minute! Many thanks!

  • Jeremy Haddock Nov 08, 2011

    I think this worked for me. I did it a little different. I have a Cannon MX870. I tried this once and it didn't seem to work. Then I did it again and instead of turning it off/on. I copied something. Then It printed fine. Hopefully it keeps working.

The ink absorber is used to contain the ink used to clean print head. If full, Canon says to contact them and have the needed part replaced. :(

You should replace the aborber if you have not already. You can get one from ebay.

Error message for Ricoh C410DN


When that message is displayed, the printer thinks the output tray is full of paper and it won't print any more because there is no room left to spit pages out. If the output tray isn't full of paper, the sensor that detects paper there might just be dirty or dusty.

That sensor is a black sensor that should be located just at the point where the paper exits the machine, above where the paper comes out. Blow some compressed air on the sensor to try to clean it off and see if that clears your error message.

according to cannon the Waste ink ABORBER not tank is getting full. To clear this error press resume and print button. But this will only fix your problem if at all for a short time as this is not considered user replaceable part. You can contact canon on line at http://consumer.usa.canon.com Good luck
