    After replacing the yellow drum the error code changed to E000020-0125
    Could this be related to the other colors?

    Apparently the Error code E000020-181 is not for yellow drum cartridges of IRC3200 but something else I cannot figure out yet.
    On restarting the copier the problem gets solved and works fine.

    On progressive black print outs I notice the intensity of black toner keeps on reducing. Waiting for a help on this.

Hello Brass, This error code means that the yellow drum/developer unit has failed. Your machine has 4 drums, cyan,magenta,yellow and black. At best they are good for about 40,000 copies. You can order one online and it is fairly simple to replace. Let me know if I can help further.
