PC745 error code - what is it. Source for manual?

I was given a Canon PC745 copier. No cartridge so I just replaced with new one. Unit comes on, Orange indicator (error code?) next to copy quantity shows something like a figure 8 and a zig zag. Code is flashing. Any idea what this means? I tried to find an on-line manual, but no luck.

Canon PC745: When I make copies they come out dirty on one side of the paper. I replaced a toner cartridge, cleaned with air duster. Did not help.

You need to clean ALL the mirrors in the optics of the machine. Including the really hard to get at mirror in the middle underside.

The Unit where you've put the toner cartridge could be to far from the drum. Make sure your developer unit (unit where you've put the cartridge in) is locked in place.
