Cannon 3200 when machine has warmed up error code 000732-001

This is a reader communications error. It's been a long time since I worked an IR-C3200 copier but all cables must be plugged in. They will only go where they were intended to go. Reseat all those cables and good luck, other wise you have a professional help problem. Make sure all the cable checks are done with power off. Then power up agai n and see what happens.

Hello jen,
Look on the operator control panel and you will see a little button below the power button. It says counter. Press it and look at the counter named "101". This counter represents the sheets of paper (regardless of size) that have successfully exited the device. The other counters you see, well, lets just say they are of no value. Now you could have a tech come out and "configure" the counters you see.My company sets the device to display "102"(counts 11x17 as 2 clicks), "109"(just black and white),"124"(color). Have a good day and please let "FIXYA" know I helped you. :-) SPINAL

Hello, I have a problem with my c3200! looks like yellow, and color looks faded. The image I'm trying to print looks all faded. Any help would be great thank you for your time

Try running the gradient/color adjuster (do a full test). It's in Additional Functions screen.
The C3200 series is known for this and many other issues. Most of the customers that I met has since switched to a Xerox color machine that has much better results (Docucolor series for print shop/marketing type work, and the WorkCenter 7600 series for high end office work. Both same body design, different engine/system software)

Error Code E000020-0225

Wedm/Craig. I will glady help you, and I am extremely confident that I am correct. More importantly I wish to to help you avoid The "COPIER DUDE COMPANY" taking a large chunk of your cash. I work for a "COPIER DUDE COMPANY" and we charge $200 just to say "yep, you have a problem". So lets start from square one and please forgive me if I get long winded and redundant. You tagged onto a request for help initiated by a customer called Brassmonkey who had a code of E000020-0181.This code means that when the copier attempted to calibrate each color (cyan,magenta,yellow and black) as it does from time to time to maintain optimum copy quality, the target values for yellow could not be achieved. Not even close. Yellow is the first color the copier checks and is used as a reference for the rest of the color calibration.Therefore it tends to be the primary error code in the event of a problem. Now here is where it gets hairy. Hang with me here. A patch of color is placed on what is called a transfer belt. This belt is where the image/copy is created prior to it being transferred to the paper. In fact, there is a point in time where the color copy you requested exists on this plastic belt, held by a staic charge, and is waiting to be pushed onto the paper as it goes through the machine. So when the copier goes thru periodic calibrations, again it makes a yellow "patch"....looks at it....... reajusts....looks at it... until it hits the optimum target of quality. And it does this for every color. So, now to the NUTS of it all. You have a drum&developer "unit" for each color.One dual unit for each. They are fed toner as they need it. Any one unit can fail due to shear normal use,and this is not a function of toner.{I have seen weird shit that defies logic before but toner is on the wierd shit list} Now, at some point the "plastic transfer belt " fails. So no matter how new the drum/developer units are, the "medium" from which the colors are being judged by cannot provide a valid measurement. Its like an old guy like me trying to read small print with scratched glasses. New text does not mean I can read it better. So now you have an 000020-0225 code. This means that the magenta color calibration failed.This tends to lean toward the transfer belt(scratched glasses) being worn. Two color calobration failures make ya wonder. Canon says that under the best of conditions the tranfer belt is good for 300K. These are all remote troubleshooting suggestions but at least you will have the benefit of these details. And the transfer belt is A: not real expensive and B: not labor intensive. I hope this helps. Good luck and take care. ............SPINAL........

Copy Problem

this could be two things first, the transfer belt is slipping. It can be cleaned on the inside of the belt and the rubber drive roller. second, the laser units need to be timed, its not hard to do but a service tech will need to do both. it should be running great. the 3200 is a great box
