I am getting a System Error E021, what does this mean?

In my home office this error message came up, E021. I opened the Printer cover, closed it, unplugged and replugged and got a Paper Jam message. I removed the paper jam and did the cover/plug routine. Now I have a message CHECK PRINTER OPEN AND CLOSE COVER. But I can't find anything wrong! I have been searcing for an explanation of the error message online, but haven't found that either. my printer may be infested by aliens.
The best advice I can give is to reseat the various parts (drum and toners).

Prepare New Y Cart is the error message. I see it

The copier is almost out of yellow (Y) toner so it is telling you to make sure you have a spare one available for when it does run out. Get it prepared/ordered. It will eventually tell you that it is time to replace the yellow toner.

Canon Imageclass MF8180c says prepare new K Cart, what does that mean?

It is telling you that you need to replace the black "K" toner cartridge. It has the yellow "Y", magenta "M", cyan "C"and black "K" cartridge. You need to have the drum roll over until you can see the black cartridge when you open the printer top.

System Error E197

I get that error sometimes, i called Canon they don't know any solution for that error code, i always fix it by turning off the machine and turn it back on, and it work just fine, but i keep getting it once every two week, its something has to do with the Voltage on the machine, it may not get enough power, or is getting more power.
