Re: Canon imageRunner 105

Hello PE. I will tell you what the code means and although we can reset the code, if the PROBLEM still exists I am afraid the code will of course return when the copier performs a diagnostic. By telling you the reason for the failure perhaps you can fix the problem and therefore MR. COPIER wont be pissed. :-) This code means that the paper supply referred to as tray "B" has a problem.The lift motor for that paper supply could not (or the copier believes it could not) successfully lift the paper to the correct paper heighth required to feed the paper. This explanation may help you correct the problem.Now to clear the code. On the operator control panel next to the nine key pad is a button that says "additional functions". That button will be part of a 3 step process. Press the the additional function button>>>> next press the numbers 2 and 8 together at the same time>>>> then back to additional functions button.This is a 1,2,3 process that should be executed in a smooth but timely fashion. This will bring up a new window on the screen. Ther will be several "blocks" on the screen and one will say COPIER. Press copier.Then a new screen appears with several tabs across the top. One of those tabs will say FUNCTION. Press function.The screen will be filled with an assortment of blocks and one will say CLEAR. Press clear, and a new set of blocks will appear.One of the new set will say ERR. Press err and then in the lower right hand corner you will say a block saying "OK". Press ok. Now unplug the machine and wait a few seconds and plug it back in.You WILL have successfully erased the error code and the machine will perform its power on diagnostic as if nothing was ever wrong. However if the problem still exists the copier will see it and the code will return. If it does, you can perform the process again but this time pull tray "B" out so the copier cannot run a diagnostic on it. This is merely a workaround and will allow you to use the copier and its remaining paper supplies. As to what specifically the problem with paper tray "B" is could be several things, all of which would require a tech to come out. I must assume that is what you are trying to avoid (as would I ....$$$$$) I hope this helps you and I wish you the best. SPINAL

How to repair fixing unit of copier machine it replies Error C6000

I assume that your printer is a Kyocera Mita and probably one from their KM range. I proceed on this basis.
It is possible to reset this using U163 in Maintenance Mode to reset the code. If the error still persists it is to do with the fuser unit. I found many error codes for many printers and the particular page of relevance to you is here:
Error Codes Kyocera Mita KM2540 Code C6000
It is for the KM2540 but you can change models easily using the drop down menu in the centre of and near the top of the page.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Ir 3300 000001-0002 error

Title : E001 Error Code That is Not Resetable Error : paper jam
When the machine powers up the E001 error code is displayed but cannot be reset. (Note: The reset procedure for an E001 code is COPIER>FUNCTION>CLEAR>ERR)
Workaround :
In this case, the Main Power Supply PCB Assembly was replaced. The machine was powered up and the E001 code was able to be reset. The part number for the Main Power Supply Assembly is FM2-0260-000.
Remember, if the fixing unit circuitry has an open or a short, the code may not reset. Be sure to confirm the fixing unit wiring and try resetting the code before replacing the Main Power Supply Assembly. Canon USA, Inc. Systems & Technical Support Division1-800-528-2830

Error code C4 is a fuser error code for a Sharp copier. You will need to reset the error code in service mode. You may have to fix the problem with the fixing unit before you can reset the code. You did not give a make or model of the copier you have. Good Luck

I looked up the e000 and it said it's for the fuser using not heating up and 001 error code and it is that the fuser unit is overheating. So seem to me you have a bad fuser unit.

Canon PC-850 E002 Error Code

After some searching, it appears that this error is common on all Canon Copiers. It means that "Fusing unit not heating up" This is most likely due to a bad fusing unit, or a component the fusing unit. Recommend replacing Fusing Unit.
