Turn of the copier and hold down the 1 and 9 and turn the power back on. you shoule see a black screen with a little block in the upper corner. the blocks will fall to the bottom. when this is done cycle the may take 30-60 minutes.
this is like a scandisk on a computer and will try to repair itself. If this does not work a service tech can try to format and reload sys software.

The error indicates the abnormal rotation of the fixing film. Mostly the film tear off at fixing film assembly. The film may be replaced at less cost as 3rd party service or the fixing film assy. replaced as geuine spare.

The other problem may happen, as rotation sensor failure or DC-CON pcb. but these are very rare.

If you have an external hard drive, you can use software such as Acronis, to make a copy of that drive to save everything in an image. Get a new drive to install in place of the old one. Next you can use Acronis to copy the image on the external hard drive, back to the computer, onto the new hard disk in your computer.

turn it off, hold down the 1 & 9 keys and turn it back on. The screen will cone up blank exept for a flashing block in the top left corner. Wait, for a long long time, 20-40 min or more, do not interupt it. The block will drop followed by another one, tetris style. When it is done it will say "download mode" . When it is done turn it off and back on. If this doesnt work (and there is a good chance it wont) then you need a new hard drive, which is not a job for an end user.
