Re: Error P00

A few easy things to try. First off, have you power cycled the unit since checking for a paper jam? Often that will clear false errors. If not, look for the sensors. They should be somewhere along the paper path, and consist of a plastic lever that will be pushed down as the paper moves past them. Usually these levers have springs attached - if the spring comes off, it will register a paper jam. You'll probably have to take off some of the housing to get to them. I'm not sure this will help much, but since I found it I'll post it. The user's manual: If the sensor needs replaced (most often due to something simple like a piece of plastic breaking on it), you can order new sensor PCB assemblies (sensor and its small control board) here: They also sell a parts manual, but it's a bit pricey.

What causes the error code J?


The error code J in Fujitsu fi-6140 scanner is associated with Document jam or feeding related issues. J-0 error is paper jam error caused by paper protection sensor malfunction, J-1 is also paper jam caused by US sensor malfunction and J-2 multifeed error caused by poor performance or malfunction of US sensor error.

Canon DR9080c - getting error code P00 which means paper jam in the scanner but there is no paper in there & I have cleaned all the sensors! What else could this be?

This is a common problem in 9080C. When the top cover is closed, the sensor sends light and it is reflected thro the black cover in the bottom. Then the scanner assumes the cover is closed. Any obstruction is treated as P00 error. You will notice three small oval & round shaped clear plastic. Clean them with a brush and ensure the edges are clean. Light goes thru one side and come thro the other, which is sensed by the unit placed in the top cover.

I have a canon dr-7580 with a P00 error. I've blown it out but no paper found. what next

Use Qumatool to check if all the sensors are working okay. Normally sensors dont fail, there must be a small piece of paper (like the 'dot' of pre-printed stationery) sticking somewhere.

Canon error numbers are logical! Error starting with 'P' is paper related. If there is already soem paper inside the scanner while inititalising, u will get this error. Check for shreds of paper in the paper path. (Error starting with 'C' is Cover and 'E' isn Engineer reqd)

Canon Dr-9080C scanner

to check the page count install the driver and setup the scanner as a "scanner device" on your computer. Once you have done that , go to the "control panel" than "scanners and printers". Right-click on the device that says "Cannon DR-9080C" and select "properties". The device information will appear, than select the "counter" tab on the information box; the scan count will be listed.
