Re: canon irc3220 error 246-0001

Hello tech. I am scratching my knoggin since I can't find an error 246 in the service manual and the Canon website had no such reference. There is however an E248 which I believe is a "bingo" for your problem (but after 20 years of copier B.S. I never say never to undocumented error codes). So I will presume it is an E248 and here is why. E 248 means the ID stored on the EEPROM of the reader controller does not match the ID of the SRAM pcb. In fact there is an article on the Canon support center website I am viewing now regarding this.The only way to fix this problem (according to Canon) is to formally involve their Engineering group by way of contacting Canon support group and have them escalate the problem all the way to the engineering group.You know how anal Canon is. But again there is some question about the error codes. I truly wish I could be of more heart ,mind and time are on YOUR side. Good Luck member of the "copier hell " brotherhood! :-) I'll clear a paper jam in your honor!

Canon iRC3220 can print but not copy....

try re-seating the Ribbon Connectors between the Reader Controller PCB, CCD Unit, and the Interface PCB found in the Reader Unit. You can also try reseating the SD-RAM DIMM's on the Main Controller PCB.
If message is still appears replace the Sub Main PCB (FG3-2855-000)

What is error code E000025 0002 for a Canon Color Image Runner C3380i and how do you fix it?


You should look at the 4 sensors behind the grey front plate, behind the front door, toner fall from hopper assembly on it and cause these codes ( each color cause a different code ), you should order a modified cable guide that protect sensors from toner and replace it after cleaning these sensors.

If the error code still appear you should change the toner supply motor ( each color have a different code ) or the PCB relay Kit (if i remember well you should also verify somme connectors on this PCB that can cause this problem)
