When the machine is turned on this error code F1-15 comes up on the display. The given description is "sorter problems, call for service." Any ideas? I've researched this code and found that it may be a stacker motor issue. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this code and possible solutions. Thanks

fuser assy either getting to hot or not hot enough. Fuser error codes cannot be reset by power cycling the machine even though that is what the display tells you to do. In order to reset the fuser error code you must enter the service mode & reset the code. To enter the service mode: press"Additional Functions" button (looks like a picture of a head with a star inside) press the #2 and #8 at the same time (simultaneously) press "additional functions" again The display should show a choice of copier,feeder,sorter,fax,or board service modes Select copier select clear select ERR press OK Turn power off & back on. ****IMPORTANT**** After clearing error stay at the machine to see if it comes to ready. The fuser assy can reach 139 degrees C.(Water boils @ 100C) The error can only be cleared through the service mode because a technician should inspect the fuser to verify there is nothing faulty that could possibly start a fire. If you enter the service mode & clear the error, power cycle the machine & during warm up the machine throws a code again- turn it off, unplug it & call a tech for fuser repair.
I can tell from the code this must be a Minolta copier or made by Minolta. The CoB60 code is a sorter failure code. This code must be reset by opening, then closing the sorter. By that I mean if you have a 10 bin sorter that hangs from the left side of the machine then you need to release the sorter away from the machine then close it back. Same thing with the 20 bin which sits on the floor. Pulling the sorter away then re-attaching is the only way to clear this code. Now if the code comes right back then there is a mechanical problem which must be repaired. The 60 code deals more with the stapler in the sorter. You can try reloading the staples but that rarely works. It is either a jammed staple or a problem with the stapler itself.
If you need further info just reply back with your specific model and issues.
Thank You for using Fixya.
All Cob codes on this series of Minolta copiers pertain to the sorter. Most all of the time you can simply open and close the sorter to reset the code. By open and then close I mean that the sorter must be pulled away from the copier then closed back.
Make sure there is nothing interfering with the movement of the sorter bins.
If opening/closing does not reset the code or if the code comes right back after resetting then the sorter will need service as dis-assembly/repair/re-assembly will be required. You can also unplug the large connector going from the sorter to the machine and use the copier without the sorter. If you have a 10 bin sorter that "hangs" from the side of the machine then you can leave the sorter attached and it will work fine unplugged. If you have the 20 bin sorter that sits on the floor then the sorter will have to be moved away from the copier if unplugged to prevent the machine from jamming. If you unplug the sorter be sure to turn the copiers power off before disconnecting the sorter.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
If the CH is blinking the cartridge is not installed correctly. Remove and reinstall cartridge.
If the CH is on constant, it is a sorter problem. Check sorter for paper jam or bins out of place, and sorter connection.
Try this press the "yellow/ca" botton, then enter 1-0-7, then press and hold the "red" stop" till the display changes. Once, it changes turn the Main power switch OFF. Not the one on the control pannel. Let it power down then turn it back ON. If the problem is still there try to turn the copier Off again and unplug the sorter/ finisher and turn the copier back ON. Is the problem gone, if so you may have to get a service person come in and repair the sorter. Good Luck.....
