Re: ##345

Hi, Apparently that error code means that the the cartridge is jammed, check that there are no bits of stuff stuck there and try to maybe remove the cartridge and maybe if you have any realigning software run those on it.
There seems to be a lot of people with the same and similar problems and the Canon service tech didn't seem to know what to do, and most are out of warranty too.
Let me know how you go.

Xerox Dc12 9-345 error how i solve it please any body help me

The RAP does not lead you to the connector unless you trace the wiring in the BSD. This connector is located on an air duct on the bottom right hand corner of the IOT Drive PWB and acts as a double plug to connect on one side to the connector of the IBT Cleaner Blade home position sensor and the other side to a connector that leads to the IOT Drive PWB. After firmly plugging in the connector, the fault code went away. call 98413 40555

If you're in a hurry, save to disk or USB memory stick, and dash to Kinkos / Staples / Business Depot or any other copy center, to get it printed out.

If you've got time otherwise, shut printer off, then on, and try and print a test page using the buttons on the printer.

If successful, then proceed to the PC. Shut down, reboot, and check the printer status. If good, try to reprint.

Error 9-345

This is a failure of The IBT belt cleaner blade retraction mechanism. 2-3 hour job for a trained tech. It may not even need parts, it's just hard to do
