CLC 1180 with error E020 with sub 0124

I have a CLC 1180. The problem is when it prints it stop on the Magenta color and has error E020 with sub 0124. I have change both the starter and also change the Toner Density Sensor Unit (FG6-2541-000). Now I can print single colors like yelow,cyan and black but when I try magenta it stops and gives the error. I also change the hopper sensor (FH7-7336-000). Anyone have any ideas?

    This is the second time I replaced the Magenta starter. The first time didn't help. Could it have been bad starter? Now I replace it a second time and all errors are gone. My thanks go out to everyone who help me sove this problem. These copiers are very sensitive, I will be back sometime in the future with another problem, I just know it.

Did you change the Magenta stater/ developer? A E020 code is saying that the toner desity is low. Try replasing the developer and run the ATDC for Megenta and see if that helps. You may have a problem with the developing ass'y it self. You may be able to take another colors dev. ass'y with the hopper open and see if the code goes away. The sub code 0124 means that it is the Magenta dev. ass'y

The error code E020 refers to a density problem with one of the Drum Units.

ur hopper motor has jammed and it is not allowing the toner to go to the developer just open the hopper motor and put it into the developer or remove the connecter attacted to the developer. it will work . there is a gear actually on the motor which breaks.

So the only sol. is to replace, if it is under warranty caontact the customer care..
Dont forget to rate me as fixya..

This is an error for the Drum units. The E020 is for toner concentration, the " 01 " is for Magenta and the " 81 " is for the concentration in the developer unit for the window sampling is below 70. Best thing to do is replace the Magenta Starter and do an initialization procedure in Service Mode. Better left to a Tech.

your back up data is currupt, you need to change your p-sens-p value check your door spect for all default value. after that clean your sensors that is found below the black developing assy. take machine off unplug from outlet replug turn machine on DO A GRADUATION ADJUST that should solve the problem / if not unplug the the same sensors , then repeat the first prod.
