Looking for actuator switch and fuses on canon pc-940 copier
Thank you for trying to help! :)
As I face the machine, in the right front corner is the on/off switch. In the back left corner is a box that the plug connects to.
Using either of these locations as a starting point, where would I look for the actuator switch? And where would I locate the fuse you discuss.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You can have this Error Code resolved, I am just not sure that it would be wise. These are the facts. You have a 10 year old machine which has an EO error code which means there is a problem with the Fusing Unit. The parts required to fix the error code are anywhere from $150.00 to $250.00 depending on if you go with the whole fusing unit or just the Fixing Film Assembly which is going to contain the defective part(s). There is some dis-assembly of the machine required in order to replace the parts. If you hire someone to do this you are looking at another $100 to $200 in labor depending on who you call. So you could easily spend $250 to $450 to repair the problem. These type of small copiers are sold brand new at Office Depot and other stores now days for $100.00. They will also have a USB port so you can hook it to a PC and use it as a printer. I am in the repair business and have been for 27 years. I would not recommend that any of my customers make a repair to this machine of this magnitude. I have in fact referred 2 of them in the last 5 months to go buy the new Canon D340 instead of repairing the old one.
Good Luck to you and Thank You for using Fixya.
1. Grasp the button on the left front side of the machine to open the top half of the copier.
2. Look for the black plastic toner cartridge on the right side.
3. Grasp a small handle on the right of the cartridge and pull it out of the copier.
4. Unpackage the new toner, pull the flexible toner seal out of the handle of the new toner cartridge.
5. Slide the new toner in place of the old and close the cover.
Instructions should also be provided with the new cartridge.
there are switch behind the front door that are activated by the front cover. you may have a broken or missing actruator pin on the front door. look very carefully on the door for anything that seems to be missing. if ther is just use a piece of paper to actuate the switch. jaime
before you go that far... plug the cannon into another outlet and see if the outlet is the issue... generally when a copier wont turn on its two things... you have power problems or your fuser is blown...
Why would a fuse have any thing to do with a clicking sound? If the fuser or fixing unit was having a problem you would get a error code. Have you replaced the toner or drum cartridge any time? If so, was the noise there before? If it was not recheck the installation and if you put the old parts back in and you have no noise, it has to be the new cartridge.... Good Luck
Well here is what I can tell you.
Open the front cover. Staring you right in the face should be a bar code/number sticker. Look forward from that and there shoule be a small plastic tab, about a half inch long and less then the thickness of a popsicle stick. It is the front cover interlock switch actuator. It may be broken off.
Or look for the opening where that tab should slide into the machine the switch may be dislogded or broken.
Probably that tab has broken off not actuating the switch on that cover.
