    Default Canon iP4600 printer service error 6C10

    Hi all,

    This error came out of the blue. When the On button is pressed, the green light flashes and after a time both the Resume button and On button flash alternately. No amount of un and replugging the power and USB cables makes any difference. Drivers reinstalled.

    The 6C10 error has been variously described as both a "Reset Canon Printer ink absorber" error or a "Valve Cam Sensor" error. I don't know where the valve cam sensor is located and I've found little info on the net. They say this sensor could be blocked by paper debris but I have no way of telling.

    This printer was bought new, has had relatively little use and mainly serves to print CDs/DVDs.

    There's a foam strip running almost the full width inside the printer and it looks 95% clean. I don't know if that's the "ink absorber".

    There is a button-push sequence designed to place the iP4600 into service mode, where you can reset the ink absorber but so far this has done nothing.

    If anyone here has some know how, your input is much appreciated!

    Thanks

    Drivers will not help its a hardware fault, yes the foam bit is the ink absorber. If the machine is under warranty get it looked at. A quick google showed 6C10 is not waste ink absorber.

    Ok thanks nedkelly.

    Here's one site that refers to 6C10 as an ink absorber error. But there's a lot of misinformation on the web so who knows.

    My printer is out of warranty

    Did you do this?
    Yes - again and again. Makes me wonder if it was an absorber error.

    its not an absorber error, it is the valve cam sensor
    Valve cam sensor error or Error Code 6C10
    Condition: The valve cam sensor was faulty at power-on or when purging was attempted.
    Problems and Solutions:

    • check for foreign material or paper debris around the purge drive system unit;
      - remove foreign material.
    • Replace
      - Purge drive system unit
      - Logic board

    You're right nedkelly. Don't suppose you happen to know where the valve cam sensor is located on the iP4600?
