Question about Panasonic FP-7735 Black and White Copier
What is an error code E3 40? My service company for this copier went belly up, no more support for me. I have this error code, sometimes I can hold the reset button & C button down when I turn it back on and get a few copies out before the E3 40 comes up again .What is this code can I fix it? Can I reset it? Where can I get the meaning for all the error codes it is not in my operating Guide???? Help
E3-40 is a toner density sensor error. It's probably toner getting built up on the sensor. It's located under the drum. It will look like 2 little LED looking things on a little circuit board about 3-4 inches long and half an inch wide. You can blow it out with canned air.
If that doesn't work, then the sensor needs to be replaced.

I just encountered the same error code. It is the problem with the toner density sensor which are located in a long skinny board which you will see hanging down on a plaster bracket after you remove the drum. There are 2 sensors. Try to clean the sensors and make sure the wire connected to it is seated firmly (that is all I need to do and my copier is working now). If still does not work, you may have to change the board, part # FFPEU0579 or FFPWB0579. To change the board, remove the white plastic clip holding the bracket and disconnect the wire. Push the bracket backward and it will drop down.
