Where is meter reading on canon imageRunner C5180i color copier?

Hi sophie,
Look to the far right of the operator contol panel, past the 9 key pad and you will see a "little button" called COUNTER check. Press it and it will tell you your meter reading.This screen can be configured "by a service tech" to allow you to view the count of up tp 6 different meter counts depending on the function you wish to monitor. The basic meter reading is named "101". That because there are hundreds of funtions that are always monitored and they name them 101,102,103 etc. 101 counts the number of sheets of paper that have exited the copier. "102" does the same except it counts 11x17 [ledger] as 2 copies as 11x17 is really 2 letter size sheets. So my company uses this meter for billing purposes so we ADD the 102 meter to the list of viewable meters. Again this can be configured to the customers needs or the service provider needs. You can set it to view just black and white, just color, or even how many copies were made at 64%. its wild. But the 101 meter is the default and cannot be removed or altered. I sure how I helped you. Please let "FIXYA" know.The pat me on the head when I do good. :-) Take care . SPINAL

When checking the meter reading on my canon ir c5185, there are the following codes before the totals: 101 102 108 230 321 322. Can you tell me their meanings?

Hello joe,hope you are well.Canon copiers have literally hundreds of "meters " that the device is constantly monitoring.Things like the number of 11x17 scans,reports printed,incoming faxes,outgoing faxes,prints at 600 dpi....etc.Its wild.The device is capable of displaying to the customer a total of six meters.The displayed meters may be customized for the customer by a technician as per the customers request or needs.Each meter is named by a number,for example "101".That particular meter indicates the total of how many sheets of paper(regardless of size) that have successfully exited the machine.102 meter indicates the total number of sheets that have been output using 8.5 X 11' as the basis.So a sheet of 11x17 paper would increment the 101 meter once,but the 102 meter would "click" twice.For billing purposes my company keeps an eye on the 102 meter to maximize profit,as it should be.Now how Canon determined the display of the other meters you see is a mystery.Again there is a meter named 958,which is the number of documents scanned to the MAILBOX. So, to completely answer your question: 108 is the total black and white copies made regardless of size.230 is just color and monocolor regardless of size.321 is{your gonna love this one}color prints on 11x17.322 is color prints on 8.5x11.So there ya' go! TMI city!!! Hope this helps.

Myprint totals say zero.

Press the counter check button. What counters do you see. There can be up to 6 different ones I believe. What counter numbers do you see e.g. 101: Total 1
Counters to display can be set using Service Mode. Press Additional Functions > 2,8 > Additional Functions.
Default's are COUNTER1: 101, COUNTER2: 103, COUNTER3: 201, COUNTER4: 203. COUNTER5, COUNTER6 none.
You could try entering those counters.
The counters could have been reset. It is apparently possible but certainly not advisable to do so without permission from Canon.

Canon NP 6050 Copier - number of copies

I would say that is not the correct meter. The meter is only 6 digits long, maybe 7 it's been awhile scine I looked at one. You probly have a meter of 0136012. There is only one hard counter / meter in the copier. It's not even the serial number?? Good luck
