That drum is $1500.00 retail price and takes 2 hours labor to replace it. There is no way out. Buy the drum and they can get it installed in 2 hours

Paper start to feed but stop. printer continue to run but paper stop.

I had this same proble. Go to Canon website. The solution is to get the discounted swap program. It usually costs less than $50 to get a refurbished direct replacement or even upgrade. I've had to do this twice and now switched to HP mainly and they have similar program

Loose drum on lavamat

I'm sorry to say, this means that the main bearings on the drum have failed. This is NOT a job for the uninitiated DIY enthusiast as it will mean stripping the machins and removing the drum from the chassis, splitting it, removing pressed in bearings and then sourcing and re-fitting new bearings.

To be frank, the cost of a bearing set (if they are replaceable , and most are) will be about £20 (($30) or so. But its a long and horrible job if you haven't done it before. I know professionals who claim they can do a bearing change in under an hour, I've done a few and it takes me about 2 hours by the time I've ripped the machine apart and reassembled it after the bearing swap. A local repairer will probably attend and swap out your defective drum for a refurbished one and then take yours away so he can refurbish it and put it back in his stock. Sadly, this will take the price up to the point where you need to question if the expense is worth it or do you get a new machine instead.

I have a canon imagerunner c3200, I recieved an error message 2004b0, which after lookin at the website found it was the black drum so I changed it out. Then I recieved the error messege 2003b0 which I am...

Hi Lil,
You have been absolutely correct in every way. The problem is that the 3200 you are dealing with has an internal counter for the Cyan drum that can only (according to all documentation I can find and as I was told in class) be reset by the chip that resides on the drum that needs to be replaced. Better put,whenever a new drum is put in,a chip within the drum resets a counter on the copier.The copier monitors the usage of the drum from that point forward using a few variables.And even though you may not see a problem the device will at some point give a code such as yours which means end of life, Canon's words not mine. This is to protect the copier from undue stress that could lead to genuine damage.So by putting a functional drum from one machine into another will not "change" the copier's mind. I searched thru the service modes and there is no true way to reset/fake that counter out as it needs a new drum chip to reset it it. There is a drastic way to do it I suppose which is a main controller reset, But that is more involved that many techs want to deal with, as it is pretty involved as to putting all the factory values(different for every machine) back in and all network settings etc.... .I wish I could have helped more, but I feel I have helped a bit.At least if you need a tech you will be even MORE intelligent than you already are. NOTE* we are assuming that none of the MANY others things that can simulate drum failure are not in play. Take care :-)

E000 system error - looks like we have to replace the drum unit, however quotations to do this range from US$700+ to US$1000. Do you have any suggestions for a company on-line that would have a drum unit...

firstly these isnt drum unit fault, E000 means fixing temperature trouble. The drum unit fault is when you have streaks on copy.
For drum try on e-bay or find local KATUN representative for cheaper Drum.

You can try to clear error, do next:

press MENU and #, select CLEAR, ERR and OK, if not helps these means that you need to change the fixing assy.

Drum replacement

I found the old manual for the machine and fortunately there was a diagram of how the mechanism should look. It turns out that the cover plate does not go at the top but over the roller bar. Once I put it in its correct place, it was a snap to fix.

It will not copy after I emptied the waste container.

There really isn't enough information given to give a proper solution. This copier has the drum light come on steady or flashing to indicate the waste toner needs to be removed. I don't know if you're a technician or not but lay people have emptied the toner cartridge instead of removing the drum, removing the cap on top of the drum, emptying the waste toner , replacing the cap on the drum, then putting the drum back into the copier. I've never had a copier keep the drum light on after doing this.

Let me know if you need more help.

Canon NP7130 copier

Make sure that the black plastic arm just to the right of the gray drum release handle is in the proper position. This arm sometimes gets knocked out of position when engaging the tube of new toner. When the copier is clammed closed, this will sometimes come down on the right side of the post on the bottom front cover. This will move the developer far enough away from the drum to make blank copies. Hope this helps.
