The C1 error is displayed when the motor tries to pull more than 26 amps to run.

This indicates a problem with the motor or motor controller.

Overloading or excessive suds can also cause this error.

If you like to make a few more checks then the image below contains the instructions for entering the diagnostic test mode.

Its a short cycle that runs all of the components so the operation of each can be checked.

I hope this helps but an intermittent C1 error can be hard to pin down.

From the service manual....

"C1 = Average current limit Or Instantaneous current limit.

If a status signal comes back from the motor controller that a current
limit has been breached, the unit will return to standby mode and
display either CA for average current limit trip or Cl for
instantaneous current limit trip.

Average current trip occurs if there is a 2 second average of current
draw greater than 5.55 amps
at the motor windings.

Instantaneous current trip occurs if there is a spike of 26 amps
instantly at the motor windings.

This may signify problems with the drive motor, thermal protector, or
motor controller. Over-loading the unit may cause this problem."

I keep getting an error message and it stops, Error message C1 and there is nothing with the bobbitn


Try hitting the F8 key after the Laptop starts booting, and when the list of options comes up, select boot in safe mode. If you are unable to get to the options screen, then search on the C1 error code on Google, and look at the tips on resolving the problem.
You will need to make note of the full error code, ie C1xxxxxxx.

I have error code E000732-0001 on Canon imagepress C1


Error :
E732 code

Workaround :
E732 code is a Reader communication error.
If the Reader is disconnected from the Printer a E732 code will result. Once the Reader is disconnected the logic on the MAIN-Controller is changed to a "0". The copier is now set up to be a Printer only, and will not recognize the Reader.
To correct this, you must enter service mode, COPIER>OPTION>BODY>W/SCNR and set that to "1". Then you must turn the copier off, then on.
To enter service mode: press "Additional Functions" then "2" and "8" together, then "Additional Functions".

C1 error code


CL code stands for overloaded motor. Motor is drawing to many amps and cuts out. I suspect a failing motor or something binding that causes the motor to draw to many amps. Don't know how to fix it.
