Getting into service mode on a CLC5000

All the info I can find says to enter *-28-* to enter the service mode on a Canon CLC 5000. So... where is the * ??? The unit powers up to a "Ready to copy" screen and there is no asterisk on the numeric pad or LCD touch screen.

    Bingo... and thanks for the help. Note: you have to hold the 2 and 8 keys for a second or two before pressing the "Alternate Functions" button a second time.

    Here is the manual but it says the same thing. I think you will be looking for the recall key instead of the * key. I have more resources that I can email you. Post to this thread if you are interested.

    OK, I have been wondering about this one and I think I got it figured out. On the left side of the machine there is a button that says "additional functions". You will have to lift up the flap. Use that key instead of the * key. Try that and PLEASE reply back. I'd like to know if that is the case. Thanks.

after of remplacement, you have reset de web alarm,

when you relocate all that pieces in her order, turn on the copier, then after this send the error code, push the buttons in this secuence...

( * ) ( 2 and 8) thogether ( * ) to enter service mode

then push ( func )
