Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3220 Color Copier

Error code E000003-0001

I am getting an error every time this copier turns on. The screen tells me that I need to turn off the copier completely and then turn it back on. I have done this numerous times and had no result. After about 30 seconds, the screen turns off and will not accept any input. None of the buttons are doing anything either. At this time I do not have the luxury of getting a technician out to my facility. Any ideas would be great.

Unfortunately you need a tech, unless you are a handyman.
there is a problem with the fuser,
either the thermistor ( heat regulator)
the thermofuse ( fuse)
or the heat lamp has gone bad

The error code means there is some thing wrong the fixing unit. I believe it for to many paper jams in the fixing unit. Remove all of the paper jams and to rest it > Turn the Main power Off and when turning the copier back ON, press and hold the utillity button till the screen changes and the Trouble rest show on the display screen. Press the "OK" and let it do it's thing & then turn it off and back ON. Good Luck

Error msg E000001-0000 What can we do

that is a thermistor error code. there are several causes for this. the thermistors are dirty, the upper fixing roller is damaged or it might have paper wrapped around it, or the connecter on the back of the fixing frame has a hair line crack in it. now you can clear this code if you you think there isn't anything wrong with the afore mentioned items.

you have to get into service mode. first you will have to shut the copier off at the main power switch and turn it back on once the error code pops up on the screen you will need to get into service mode.
you hit the
additional funtions button
then the 2+8 at the same time
then additional funtions button again
once in service mode you will need to follow the following steps

hit the copier tab
then the funtions tab middle of screen across the top
then hit the clear tab
then the err tab and hit the ok button to clear error

now you only have like 30 seconds give or take to get into service mode and to clear the error code before the machine shuts down if you don't get in fast enough dont worry shut the copier off and turn it back on and keep trying till you get in and clear it. trust me it took me several tries my first time i realized this myself.

I have a Functional Problem. The little wrench shows on the User Tools / Counter button location and on the screen. The Functional Problem code looks like SC542-00. It tells me to shut off copier and turn...

SC542: Fusing temperature warming-up error The fusing temperature does not reach the fusing standby temperature within 135 sec (35CPM machines) or 145 seconds (45CPM machines) after the main power switch is turned on. - Possible causes - • Fusing thermistor defective or out of position • Fusing lamp open • Fusing thermofuse open • BICU defective • Power supply board defective • Poor fusing unit connection
Sometimes by going into service mode and then turn off copier and back on will clear this message or while in service mode do an error clear. But most of the time it is the thermistors in the fixing unit needs to be cleaned or replaced. I would probably call in the techs.

L4-03 is a lock of the fusing motor. It's likely you need to have the fuser rebuilt. You can try resetting the error by turning off the main power switch (located behind the front door under a little plastic cover) and back on. It's likely the error will come back. There's a cleaning screen on the lower fuser roller which gets gummed up with toner and sticks to the lower fuser roller causing it to seize and the motor not to be able to turn causing the L4-03.

A 50 Service error is a fuser error. Turn the printer off for at least 10 minutes, then turn it back on. If the error is still there, you can try reseating the fuser, but be sure to let the fuser cool completely before touching it.
If you still have the 50 Service error after reseating the fuser, you might need a new fuser.
You can access the fuser by opening the rear door. It's located directly above the paper tray. There are two screws that hold it in place. Remove those two screws, and the fuser slides outs.
Hope this helps.
