Question about Canon imageRUNNER C3200 Copier

1 Answer

Neither the finisher or lower paper cassettes are detected by my iRC3200 anymore. Both have been fine, and just recently stopped being detected. I've tried restarting and reseating the cables between the main unit and the addons to no effect.

    No luck. There's no paper stuck, and I can hear the microswitch clicking nicely if I listen closely when closing the finisher.

    It's not that they're not working, rather that they're not detected as being attached at all. E.g. the little picture of the printer in both the printer driver on my pc, and in the tray designation box on the printer interface has changed to show the unit without the add-ons.

    I have a canon tech coming to look at it today, so hopefully he'll be able to fix it.

    It turns out one of the power supplies had failed.

There is a inter lock on the sorter when you attach it to the copier that is not being pushed in and you minht have a sheet of paper in the back of cassettes. Pull the cassettes out and look in the back of the copuer.

Paper jam and no paper jam

Probably paper never being picked up and not feeding out of cassette which explains why you see a jam indicated but cannot find a jammed paper. Probably time to rebuild the cassettes.

Error 02 - 574

Main code 2X : Mechanism control system error
574 Failed to detect the T reel FG during search.

This means the take up reel stopped rotating during forward search. It shut down assuming tape was spooling loose into mechanism. Could be just a faulty cassette tape. A common problem is also when labels have been placed in the wrong places on the cassettes, stopping the lid from opening fully and stopping the reel reaching the reel motor drive.Manually eject the tape and try another tape. If the fault continues, have a look for something in the way under the cassette such as post it notes, paper clips, torn labels etc.
Have you had the unit serviced since you got it?
Could be time to get it to a service centre for help.

Paper cassette is not seated correctly. check for paper or objects blocking the cassette path. reinsert the cassette and press Start. keep getting this message. started after printing and installing...

I had this same problem and tried everything (I thought) to fix it. Then I saw the solution at:

Basically there is a plastic pin that tends to break off and stays in the area where the cassette is loaded. It takes up just enough space to keep the cassette from being pushed in all the way. The solution is to turn the printer off, unplug it, then lift up the printer so the broken pin falls out. Once it comes out, the printer will work fine again.

MFC886DN will not pick up the paper in the lower tray.

first, most common problem is the rear stopper in the cassette is pressed too tightly against rear of paper. leave 1/8" gap between stopper and rear of paper. if that doesn't help, pull cassette out and locate gear on left side of cassette bay and make sure it is not dislodged.

good luck,

Do you know how the cannon irc2620n comes apart ?

firstly, you may need four people, it's a heavy beast. But, you can remove the document feeder, all the cassette trays, the drum units which just pull out, the fineshir if there is one, the paper deck mto the right, the fixing assembly/duplex unit (two clips), Now try again with all this out and if need be - get two stronger guys.

I think you may need the service manual for disassembly procedures:
