L1 or L1-00 indicates Scanner movement failure. The scanner is the part under the glass that lights up and moves back and forth. So if you lift up the feeder so you can see the glass, turn the machine off for a few seconds then back on. Watch the movement of the scanner. It should move right and inch or two then back to the left. If all goes well the copier should come to ready. Lay a piece of paper on the glass and press the print button to watch the scanner movement. If it binds up or does not scan correctly there are 2 possibilities.
1) your scanner lock is engaged and is preventing the scanner from moving. Check the clear plastic dial located under the far left upper side of the copier, near where the paper exits the machine. Make sure it is in the unlocked position.
2) Your scanner rail is dirty and dry. This rail can be seen under the glass towards the back of the copier. The scanner rides on this rail. It is very common for these to get dirty and for the grease to dry up causing the scanner to freeze up on the rail. The glass must be removed and the rail cleaned and lubricated.
Just power off then on the copier to reset.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

What is error code f69 on a frigidaire electric range


Hello. You have a serious problem--that error code means L1 or L2(the 120v supply wires) may be shorted with the neutral on the incoming power supply. TURN OFF THE POWER!! Check the wiring at the terminal block. The neutral is the center post. L1 is usually black and L2 is usually red. The F68 and/or F69 error means high voltage or the above-mentioned condition. Once you have verified there is no incorrect polarity or voltage condition, then the main oven control board must be replaced. The part number you might need is 316562011. I hope I helped you!

What does L1 error code mean on an Electrolux dishwasher


The only solution I can come up with for this one is that L1 is a Leak Detector problem-When water is detected under the tub. I spent an hour researching this issue. I've never come across this one before.

L1-18 code


I don't see a reference to a L1-18. A L1 code is a scanner feed problem. I only show a L1-00 code. Sorry.

According to another source, the L1 error means "Scanner position error". Hope you find a solution, and not an expensive one.
