Canon NP 6545 - Error E020

My copier (Canon NP 6545) was running and suddenly just stopped with the following message showing: E020 Switch the power OFF and ON again. I switched power off and on again but the copier will not start; the same message appears. I know this message deals w/toner or hopper or hopper motor, but don't know which one. Toner is full. Help!!!

Canon NP 6050 copier Error

E020 is a toner hopper motor error. This means that not enough toner is being sent to the developer box. It usually is a hard error, meaning that the part has to be changed.

Title : E020 Error Code Problem :
When you have followed all the steps from the troubleshooting guide in the Service Manual and still have not resolved the issue, here are some possible areas that might be related.

Solution :
1) Confirm that the toner and hopper sensors are being wiped completely.
2) Check the Gear Train on the hopper assy it may be locked up.
3) A possible bad hopper unit cable. FG5-5016-000. See The Parts Catalog page 620-2 item # 60.

That is a fuser realted issue. Not warming up properly.
Most likely a defective fuser. The over heat has opened, the heat element has gone bad.
Fuser more then likely needs replaced

Error e020

The developer unit is looking for toner from the hopper. E020 can also be the DC Controller or the developer unit itself. The toner cartridge is probably fine. This can be complicated to fix. The copier is probably still under warranty. It's better to call up Canon 1-800-828-4040 and have them send out a Certified Technician to fix this. Sorry I couldn't help more. Ray
