Re: download mode

Hmmmm.... Hello jubest. I am a bit concerned that you even know how to get into download mode. Download mode prepares the copier to be reprorammed. This is used when the engineers at Canon who designed the machine determine that through R&D and real world encounters decide to update the software/firmware to better hone the device's ability better function in the real world. I would not call it dangerous to life and limb or to the enviroment where the device is being used for an untrained person to enter download mode. But I can assure you that it is extremely easy to render the copier unusable, although it can still be used as a great place to put a fish bowl or a no smoking sign if you decide to play around with "download mode".

Hi there,
this means that there abnormal readings of temperature in fixing assy.

To get rid of the error you can do two things:


Press * ( add. function key )
press 2
press 8
Press *

This will allow you to enter service mode.


Under FUNCTION tab, choose CLEAR and choose ERR

This will clear E002 error.
Turn off and on.

If it works, that means that because of i.e. blocked vent cover, or too much of a/c,... had influence on temperature readings in fix. assy.

If that doesnt help, you need to replace fixing film assy.

Hope that helped

Canon ir 2200 help

For problems with the hard disk on the Canon ImageRunner (my model is 2220n):

Step 1: Unplug the unit (leaving power switch on), and then plug back in while holding down the 1 and 9 keys

Step 2: Wait. The hard disk will reformat - you should see at first a flashing white block in the upper right hand corner, then you will see white blocks building rows on the screen left to right with the screen eventually filling entirely. This may take an hour or more.

Step 3: After reformatting, your screen should say "Download Mode" at the bottom. Now just turn the machine off, unplug it for a few seconds, plug it back in, and then turn it on (you must switch power toggle off and then on - not sure if unplugging is necessary but it worked for me).

This site is great and has saved us at least $1,000 on copier repair this year - repairs that really didn't require a tech at all.

Good luck.
