Canon Image Class MFC 8180c "Download Stanby"

I went to my office yesterday to find out my color Laser Printer (Canon Image Class MFC 8180c) went on "Download Standby". The LCD screen shows "DOWNLOAD STANDBY" and I have tried to reset it thrice, changed USB ports, changed my USB connector, telephone wires, upgraded software, and nothing seems to work. Is there a HARD RESET on the Printer? My printer is not printing, copying or faxing. Can anyone help?

    The previous person did not read my problem.

  • epicurra Mar 04, 2008

    I still can not get the "Download Stanby" and none of the buttons work while that message is on the LCD. Now what?

  • epicurra Mar 04, 2008

    "the canon standby download" is on the LCD of the printer. I think this has someting to do with a software in the printers, like a BOOT ROM or something like that? Software has to be updated using Canon Support Tool, via the USB port and System Software Version 60.02 or higher CD. How do I get a hold of that software system restore disk for Canon printers?

    Thanks, Jen

    Thanks, IB4G8000! I have accepted your answer - it wasn't entirely just the drivers, but I managed to get it up and running!

Here is a solution to a similar problem provided by soulvisitor in this thread:

"1) - Power ON printer while holding both the + & - buttons until “OKIUSER” message appears in LCD.
2) - Press + or – button until “ENGINE DIAG MODE” is displayed.
3) Press "ENTER", displayed will be "DIAGNOSTIC MODE XX.XX.XX S-MODE"
4) Press + or – button until “NV-RAM INITIAL” is displayed.

Half way, dont stop too long it will time out....
5) Press "ENTER" again.
6) Will appear "TABLE 1" message.
7) Press "ENTER" until "EXECUTING RESET" message appear. .....
..........the "NV-RAM INITIAL" message will BLINK.
Tada....This procedure reset TONER, DRUM, FUSER and BELT...life counts
8) power OFF printer, wait 10 sec, and power ON again..

To access Service Mode in C9300 power ON printer with 0, 1, 6, 7 at same time...you can do some good damage in there!! (I warned ya!)"

    It is the procedure to reset device to factory settings.

    Disregard my solution, was meant for a different model, sorry. I got very scarse documentation about your printer. Please re post the problem, if I find out the reset procedure I will post it back here.



    Thanks

    please disconnect printer from computer completely, let's get printer back on it's feet, then worry about seeing it on computer

    let's make sure that driver is best..see this link

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 04, 2008

    actually, your issue has been well read, and the links are useful. That error code does NOT appear on any of the Canon printer service or repair documents that are available. So, the LCD screen you are referring to is on the printer, or the computer?

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 04, 2008

    sheesh...nothing like a 'similar' solution. Let's see what Canon can tell us directly,


  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 04, 2008

    direct from Canon, who I'm on phone with now, to benefit the whole effort here..


    Uninstalling/Reinstalling the Software
    Removing MF Toolbox
    Removing MF Drivers

    If
    the drivers are not working properly, remove the drivers and install
    them again. When removing the software, remove the MF Toolbox first,
    and then the MF drivers. Even if you want to reinstall the software,
    you must still remove the currently installed software. Before you
    remove the drivers, make sure of the following:

    You have the installation software available for installation.
    No application is running on your computer.

    technicians at Canon will provide that information in short order, hang loose

  • Patrick Michaels
    Patrick Michaels Mar 04, 2008

    well..can't hang on much longer..call Canon cust service, and they'll route you to a technician..good luck on this one.

The hard reset you are referring is done by unplugging the printer from the main power source and leave it like that for about1o minutes, to allow the circuitry to cool down and reset itself.
If the printer is less than a year old, still covered under manufacturers warranty.
Hope it works.

I send or try to copy a document on the 8180c printer, it sets out the paper, but there is no image on the paper


If this was the case all the time, I would imagine you have an incorrect driver in the Laser Printer. You should be able to upgrade the drivers by contacting the the Canon Co.
If this is a new problem the static bar that runs across the drum has lost it's positive charge to produce the picture should be replaced ... its not cheap !
