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.

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

Can't send or receive faxes after fixing error code problem


your printer CHANGE PAPER TO
A4/LTR/LGL PLAIN
The paper size setting is set to a size other than
A4, letter or legal in fax receive mode.
The paper type setting is set to a type other than
PLAIN in fax receive mode.
Set the paper size setting to A4, letter or
legal and load paper of the same size.
Set the paper type setting to PLAIN.

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

Load paper error message when using legal paper. Paper tray is full and still get message. Loaded feeder tray and got clear paper jam. Yet letter size paper worked in the paper tray.


you have to program the paper size anytime you change the size of paper you use in a lot of panasonic machines. This is done through the
function" feature... go intofunction... general settings...scroll down to key operator mode...the code will be "00000000" (8- 0's) and it will be in one of the first screens up

''place paper in drawer''


Sounds like a paper sensor ; A little black arm that senses paper tray is full, when the tray lifts into position. You might pull the tray and with a flashlight look for any broken parts. I have seen these break when paper jams are removed. This is a Toshiba 2860 correct?
