It says error code C0b63 what does it mean

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.

I can not give you a solution if you can not tell me which sorter you have. I asked wether you had a 10 bin sorter or 20 bin sorter. See previous question.

Minolta Copier's sorter bin won't close properly.

This 20 bin sorter uses an interlock switch and actuator to show that the sorter is properly attached to the machine. Pull the sorter away from the machine and look at the rear side of the copier that faces the sorter. There should be what looks like a spike mounted to the copier. That spike goes into a hole in the sorter which then actuals the switch. Make sure the spike is not broken or loose. Make sure the tray that the sorter sits on is not bent. Correct any issues with these 2 and you should be good to go.

ST216, J72.
1. Paper is caught on the flapper assembly (p/n 12TK-4510). The indexer is not adjusted high enough to have the flapper correctly positioned. This symptom usually occurs after the last copy enters the top bin. To properly adjust the indexer position, perform the following:
a. Power copier OFF.
b. Remove the front and rear covers.
c. On the sorter CB, set dipswitches SW1-1, SW1-2 and SW1-3 to the ON position.
d. Ensure both sorter interlocks are closed (PS208 and MS201).
e. On the sorter CB, press and hold PSW1 while powering ON the main body (code 70-00 will occur; this is normal).
f. Release PSW1, then press and release it one time. The indexer will lower to the adjustment position (approximately at the 4th bin).
g. Open the conveyance section.
h. Insert the indexer positioning shaft adjustment tool (p/n 7050K0020) into the access hole on the rear side frame of the sorter. The hole is located to the right of the conveyance door interlock switch (MS201). The shaft should be positioned under the indexer and into another hole in the front side frame.
Note: The indexer positioning tool is the same tool used for optics alignment on the 7050.
i. Rotate the indexer motor encoder plate to lower the indexer until it contacts the adjustment shaft.
j. Loosen the fixed screw located on the front side of the indexer.
k. Slide the front of the indexer up or down until it is positioned parallel with the adjustment shaft. Retighten the indexer fixing screw.
l. Loosen the screw that secures the PS203 4-slot encoder plate and adjust the 4-slot encoder plate until LED 1 is lit. Retighten the encoder plate.
Note: Either or both interlock sensor/switch (PS208/MS201) must be opened during this adjustment.
m. Remove the indexer positioning shaft and reset all 3 SW1 switches to the OFF position.
n. Power copier OFF/ON to return to the normal mode.

2. The sorter top front frame is slightly bent and not parallel with the rear top frame. This, in turn, allows the top cover to be out of position and bind the flapper gate (p/n 12TK-4510). This gate should normally open when the indexer lowers to bin 2, allowing the paper to enter the bins.
Reform the sorter top frame so the top cover, when mounted, does not bind the movement of the flapper gate.

3. Mylar guides are installed on the exit unit of the main body.
Remove the mylar exit guides when a sorter is installed. The guides help eliminate static when paper exits into the catch tray. When a sorter is installed, the guides can cause exit misfeeding.

4. The flag for the sorter entrance sensor (PS201) is stuck on the guide plate below the sensor. This happens when the top of the sorter is lifted as it is moved away from the copier.
Lift the top of the sorter and place the flag back into its proper position. Instruct the operators not to lift the top of the sorter when it is moved.

A E532 code deals with the sorter. Are the bins moving at all, also try to unjam the stapler. Also have you tried to let the machine warm up with the sorter moved away from the copier? How about this have you tried to turn the copier OFF then disconnect the sorters plug from the back of the copier and turn it back ON with the sorter moved away from the copier. If it works you are all set. I believe your copier is a older model and for the 10 bin sorter that it comes with may not be worth repairing. If it is a 10 bin sorter, it was never a good design from Canon, they work or don't work.. Good Luck...

Toshiba 3550 Document Feeder

1- you've already established that the jamming is coming from the sorter, since you said they jam as they exit the copier into the sorter bin.
2- check to see if the sorter is aligned, is one side higher than the other? is it crooked? are the wheels of the sorter turning as the paper exits the copier, is it plugged into the copier? does it show "connect sorter" when detached from copier?
if not the sorter board may be bad.It may need to be aligned ( not easy if not used to doing.)
