A C0040 error code indicates a problem with the suction deck fan. It has nothing to do with the paper lift motors.

The fan is accessed by removing the rear cover of the copier. It is right in the center. These are readily available (p/n 9313-1310-61) although they are not cheap (around $200 retail).

I can't get the paper drawer to go all of the way in. It is about 2 !/2 inches from going all the way in.


Is it possible you have the tray set for legal size paper. The design of this printer means that any paper size longer than letter results in the tray sticking out.

Code c0910


This error code means there is a paper lifting problem in the paper trays. Most common cause is improperly loaded paper. Check the trays to be sure all paper is loaded properly then turn off then back on, the MAIN power switch Not the one up on the control panel. If the code does not come back then your fine. If it does then pull out all of the paper drawers, reset the code again and then close each drawer one at a time waiting 15 seconds between each tray closing. If you close a drawer and it pops the code after a few seconds then that is the tray that is causing the problem. Double check that tray and if you can not get it to work then you will need service on that tray as it has a paper lift problem. Either the lift motor or the sensor. You can leave that tray popped open an inch or two and still use the copier with the other trays.
Good Luck and Thank You using Fixya.

F3 ERROR CODES


This code indicates a fault with the paper tray lift-up motor. F3-12 = tray 1, F3-22 = tray 2 etc. To clear this fault switch off at the power supply and empty the indicated tray of all apaper and jams. Operate the lift up section and then close the drawer with NO paper in drawe. Switch on again and after the machine boots up replace the paper in the drawer. This usually works fine unless there is a serious problem with the lift-up motor.

I was just switching on a copier machine ''Minolta Dialta di 522'' and it appear on the screen a message saying that there is an error 0990. What is that error and how can i solve it?


Most C0900 range codes and specifically the 990 code refers to paper tray lifting. Pull out the paper drawers and check all the paper. Reload all the trays carefully. Then open/close the front door or turn off/on the machine to reset. If the code goes away great. If not then open all of the paper drawers, reset the code with the drawers OPEN. Then close each drawer 1 at a time waiting 30 seconds between each drawer closing. Once you close a drawer the code will come up within about 10 seconds. This will tell you which drawer is causing the issue. You can leave it out a bit so you can use the machine until you either find the issue with the tray or get a service guy out to fix it.
Good Luck

HP Color LaserJet 8550DN input device failure, check cables and cycle power | error code: 66.01.02


This error message indicates a lifter malfunction has occurred. When the 2000-sheet input tray (Tray 4) is closed, the paper deck lifts the paper stack until it is just below the feed rollers. Photosensor flag PS34, the paper surface photosensor, determines when the paper stack is lifted into the feed position. When PS34 does not detect paper in the expected time, the printer reports a 66 error. SOLUTION: Follow the steps below to troubleshoot and resolve the issue.
  1. Turn the printer off, open and close the tray, then turn the printer back on to see if the error clears.
  2. Open the drawer and check for extra paper or items stored on the left side of the tray. This will prevent the tray from lifting due to excess weight or blocking the lift of the tray.
  3. Remove all the paper from the tray. Remove the tray guides and reseat them. Verify the guides are not bent or broken.
  4. Lift the paper deck manually to verify there are no obstructions in the path.
  5. Pull the tray out as far as possible and observe the white bushing on the back right side of the tray. If the white bushing is broken, the tray will not lift properly.

When I change to legal size, the paper tray can't


You might have to remove it or lift from the back, you shouldn't use the drawer to force it open.

Canon Laser Class 3175 facsimile, incoming faxes are being saved in memory, will not print. Cannot clear error message "check paper size".


The problem is that you have a fax saved in memory that is the wrong size for the paper you have in the drawer. Probably it is a legal size, whereas you have letter size in the drawer.Just place some legal size paper in the by-pass tray to print.
