OK CAREFULLY take out the toner bottle, then open close the front door, then power off the machine, wait 10 sec, then power the machine up with the toner bottle out, only add the bottle when it ask for toner

C0072 copy error

The error code C0072 deals with the toner hopper. I would remove the toner bottle and close the front door and wait till the copier comes to ready and make a copy, if it works install the toner and see what happens. The problem may be in the toner bottle holder.... There is a "HP" sensor that may be dirty or broken. Good Luck

Minolta ep 5000 error c0072

A C0072 error code deals with the toner bottle. Remove the toner bottle and close the front door and let the machine warm up. Make one copy and install the toner bottle again. The toner holder may have not been in the correct position. If it continues, you may need to call a service person. Good Luck

Code C0072

You did not give the model number? So, I'm going to guess, did you just add a new toner? If so remove the new toner bottle and close the door / cover and see if the copier comes to ready? If so, make a copy and when the copy is done install the toner bottle. The error code C0072 deals with the toner hopper motor. If the code will not clear, then you may have a broken gear in the hopper drive unit. Good Luck

Minolta 6100 displays message C0072

Are you certain it is a Minolta 6100? The only 6100 I am aware of is a Magicolor 6100 color printer. My service manual for that model lists no service code C0072.
C0072 is a common Minolta copier code which pertains to the toner add system. I had a service call the other day for C0072 and it was the toner cartridge not fully "locked" in to it's receptacle, so you can start there. Opening and closing the front door on most Minolta's will reset this code.
Good Luck
