    This is the message that the printer is showing me...yes did realise I spelt it wrong.

    Thank you for your help

  • jenny_willia Dec 17, 2008

    Yes thats the printer. It has a flashing red light and at the bottom of the screen there is a printer icon, next to that it says Printer, and then next to that it states check printer screen (Error)?

  • jenny_willia Dec 17, 2008

    Ok....when I turn it back on it says Printer is warning up..... then the light starts flashing again (there is also a red light flashing in system monoitor area) when I go into system monitor there is no other information apart from the Check Printer screen (Error) which has replaced the printer warming up script!

    There are three speech bubbles which point to the printer however they are all empty! very confusing

    Thank you for your have been fab!

    Enjoy work!

    Jenny, Is this the exact wording from the printers screen, or is it being read from PC's print driver and it is asking you to look at the screen of the printer

    might nnot be in list cause it is a Canon nnnot Cannon;)

    Is this the exact wording ? check printer screen (error) that is being shown on the actual photocopiers display

    Is my pic the same as what you are talking about?

    1st step

    Power off and on copier, then tell me what happens

    Red light, and check printer screen is asking you to read the display panel and respond accordingly, ensure you are reading the LCD display fully, and there is not toner lights on or jam indicators

  • Soulvisitor

    Sound like the bubbles are surposed to be indicating jam location,(display set too dim?)

    I'd be openning all covers and hanldles, paper trays and ensuring all paper path is clear, including sorter and doc feeder. this machine should be under Maintence contract with your Canon Dealer, try ringing them or send me 10 000 dollars to inspire me to stay and fix your problem, rather than me going to work right now.. good luck, Bye... ;)

This is mainly caused by Power Problem in cannon 3200, Change the complete fuser assembly as one of the thermistors has gone open circuit, just by ordering up the single parts costs the same as buying the complete thing. Also, if required, reset the code *28* function.

Error E00020-01b0 canon clc 2620

Hi. This code means that the device has detected a problem with the yellow drum assemly. USUALLY you merely need to replace the yellow drum.However, when the device does a self check, the first color looked at is yellow. So in the event you have a larger problem, an error code for yellow would be the first the device would notice.I hope you understand my point. But I'd say you have a 95% chance of success if you replace the yellow drum assembly which is quick,easy and relatively cheap. I hope this helps and good luck!!! :-)

Error cannon pixma mp520

Turned it on, off many times as instructions suggest,
etc no dice. Reinstalled software, did everything including giving it a few taps.I was very seriously ready to buy a new one and trash this one, even checking flyers. I read where so my are having this same problem.
In my anger I started pushing all the buttons randomly and suddenly the green light stayed on.
Voila the crazy thing works fine again. Must have reset the glych somehow ?(I have no idea how)
Give it a try before giving up, who knows!!
