Question about Fujitsu Lifebook C1020 Notebook
The folk at Sharp are very protective of their info - and tell me I have to go to a local repair agent - I did that and he quoted me $1200 to come and have a look - no details of what he could/would do - just a price !
I'd like to know a bit more if I can - I'm able to fix just about anything (electrical/IT background) but I can't fix it unless the problem is described in English to me.
The Error Codes are not available in the user documentation or on Sharp websites that I can find. Can anyone help me please?
There is a harness that extends from the scanner unit (the part that has the lamp in it and moves back and forth when you make copies) to the MCU unit ( a large board in the back of your copier). Usually the first thing to chk is that. It is possible your MCU board is bad, or it is possible the connector has come loose, or the IMC board on the scanner unit is bad. You can go online and download the Sharp service manual for your unit and it gives a decent assembly and disassembly diagram that will enable you to see where this harness connects to and from. The cost of that 207 unit is not worth 1200.00 you could replace the entire unit for 2000.00 if you shop online. If you were a sharp techie there are several simulations and tests that could be done to pinpoint the problem otherwise it is a process of elimination. But with that said ...here is what the Sharp manuals says.
E1 00 Content IMC PWB communication trouble.
Detail An abnormality occurs in communication
between the MCU PWB and the IMC PWB.
Cause IMC PWB-MCU PWB harness abnormality.

It sounds like you have a laser scanner unit error. you can replace this yourself it might be tricky at first but you said you got some sort of background on fixing things. If i were you i would check ebay amazon and sites like that or see if the manufacture's website offers the part.
