    L6 is an error code with aproblem in the laser unit. If you turn the machine off and then back on does it clear the code, then go back into it or does it have the L6 flashing as soon as it is turned on?

    I did have my buttons confused a little and did not find AR-M205 manual, but found some close to the same generation.

    Press #

    press *

    press clear

    press *

    enter in 14

    press the start key

    If this doesn't work let me know and if there is an interupt key on the control panel.

    Thanks and good luck

All the buttons are non responsive and the copier flashes 40 U 2. I can't get it to clear or do anything.

U2 error code reset.

Go to simulation mode by pressing # * C * (press these four buttons as soon as possible) the display will go off, then enter 1 6 and press start key. The machine will restart automatically. However if the toner chip is defective, the error will not reset. Replace the toner chip if required.

Error code 20000

...Actually it probably says error code 020000...flash test.
Other error codes: 6 digits in codes:
left to right digits;
1- Battery Test 0= Pass; 1= Fail ( batteries have to be good and in place even if using power supply (100000)
2=Flash Test/ Flash Charging 0=Pass; 1= Fail (020000)
3= IR Sensor Test 0= Pass; 3= Fail (003000)
4= Camera Mod Test 0= Pass; 4= Fail (000400)
5= Memory Test 0= Memory o.k. or no sd card; (000000) 5= Memory Full (000050) 6= SD card locked (000060) 7= SD card damaged (000070) 8= Comms Error (000080)
6= Clock Test 0= Pass; 9= Fail (000009)

WHEN PERFORMING THESE TESTS, FOR THE FLASH TO TEST OK YOU HAVE TO COVER LIGHT SENSORS small glass items each side of lens.If you still have error, install good batteries, power on, drop batteries out, turn unit off, reinstall batteries and turn on again....if all this, you still have error, you probably have bad flash unit.

    Canon Pixma ip3000 flashing amber 6 times

    If the 6 flashes are accompanied by an on screen message #5400, this is a "Service Call Error" code.

    This code indicates the following;
    Internal temperature error [5400]
    The solution to this is the following part replacementl
    - Logic board ***'y (QM2-1548) *1

    *1: Before replacement of the logic board ***'y, check the waste ink amount (by service test print or EEPROM information print). If the waste ink amount is 7% or
    more, also replace the bottom case unit (QM2-1205) or the ink absorbers (QC1-4222 / 4223 / 4224 / 4263 / 4264 / 4864 / 4221 / 4257) when replacing the
    logic board ***'y.
    [See Section 3-3. Adjustment / Settings, (6) Service mode, for details.]

    Good luck!!!

    I had the error message L-4 .can you halp to fix this problem?

    L6 is a laser polygon motor fault, you need to replace the polygon motor in the laser unit, but try the reset code first sim 14

    May 19, 2008 | Sharp AR-5316 Advanced Digital Imager...

    1 Answer


    L6:The Main PWB sensed a Polygon motor lock signal error. 5-L6 only: Check the connector CN23 on the Main PWB and the wires and connectors on the Laser Module. If connector and wires are not damaged, replace laser module. What that normally means is the laser mirror motor has failed. That normal price for that item is normally over $300. Here is a parts dealer to contact to see if they have it in stock.

    Flashing error code

    Performing a Fault Reset 14 will reset your WorkCentre and will help to clear error codes.
    1. Find the pink Clear button on the Control Panel of the WorkCentre.
    2. Find the button below the word Auto.
    3. Press these buttons in the following sequence: [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] NOTE: All of the lights on the Control Panel should go out and the LED Display should go blank. If the lights do not go out, then repeat step 3 until they do. It may be necessary to increase or decrease the pace of the [Clear], [Auto], [Clear], [Auto] sequence.
    4. Press the [10's] key one time and the [1's] key four times to enter '14' in the LED Display, as if you were to make 14 copies.
    5. Press the green [Start] button.
    6. Press the pink [Clear] button two times.
    7. The WorkCentre should now warm up and come to ready.
    8. If the above steps do not clear the error code, repeat steps 3 to 6 a second time.
