Question about Canon imageCLASS D880 All-In-One Laser Printer

3 Answers

I have got a CANON ImageClass MF3240, and I can not get it Started, it was working perfectly fine, but now it won't even start or light a led from the front panel. I've checked the power cord with a multimeter and also the power inlet of the printer, as a Result, I had everything powered right. It seems like the power won't go to the START button, so it can be turned on. How can I get this fixed?

    Hi Steve, I had checked the fuse already, it is a 250V 10A. And when the power is on, 120VAC passes through (also measured with multimeter) . I'm not sure if the power supply board could be the one causing the problem, because whenever is powered on, I don't have any voltage in the other boards. Or could be that they need to wait until the START button gives them the power signal to turn them on. I've also checked the Control Panel board, specially the buttons, to see if one of them was not working right, or could be open all the time, but all of them are working good.

    Appreciate, thanks

    Hi, the fuse is perfectly fine, I've checked it, and measured 120VAC when powered. Thanks for the info, I'm still looking for the component that is not letting the printer work at all..

    No, I don't see any burnt track at all in the Power Supply board or boards.

If no led light would turn on, try to use other power cords. If it still does not light us a led, then this is already a hardware problem with the printer as the power supply went defective. You need to have that changed. Contact your nearest Canon authorized service center for repair. If this unit is still under warranty, the you can save cost.

This sounds like a fuse, hopefully. You will have to take the unit partially apart to get to the power supply board to investigate. Not sure if these manuals will help you, or if you already have them, but here is a site to download free manuals:

If you have too many problems checking this out, you may need a service manual, and you might check with canon support:

I couldn't run down a service manual on the net, so contact Canon if you need one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hi, i am glad to see you have done the normal checks with the volt meter, but there is an internal fuse for these, you will have to gain access to the power supply inside, on or around the power supply should be either a 3 or 5 amp clear fuse, these are not your normal type fuses like you get in the plug, but these are slightly longer and clear glass........do not except this answer yet please, no thumbs up till you fix the problem, then can you thumbs up and accept the answer thanks...............

    hi no ,this should defiantly have power up to all the boards in the system, this actually does sound like the power rectifier may have blown is the board showing any signs of burnt tracks? or burnt soldered connections?

    hi again well in that case you have 2 items that may have gone, first the DC control pcb, which if you ask me is the culprit, or the HV transfer pcb, which may also be at fault as these are both power regulated pcb's that send power to the system, you might be best off asking a canon engineer about these, as there are so many different types i would not want you to order the wrong part, but i think you will find it was the first one, the DC control board pcb at least this gives you some idea what you will be asking them and if it is possible that , that could be the cause of your fault...

Tip

Canon ImageClass MF3240 paper jam fix


The Canon ImageClass MF3240 continues to show "paper jam" error even if someone followed all the possible fix to remove the jam. After clearing the paper in all access doors (both front and back), the printer still gives the paper jam error. Also, if you have tried restarting the printer several times to no avail and the red light keeps blinking, here is the fix to what is most probably been causing the paper jam problem of Canon ImageClass MF3240.

1. Turn off the printer and pull out all plugs and power cord that is attached to your printer.

2. Remove the paper tray at the bottom and let the printer lie at its back so that you can see underneath.

3. Get a flashlight and look closely for the sensor located underneath the printer. The sensor is located in a small square hole, just above the small black plastic "lever" (looks like a small hockey paddle) on the left side of the gray rubber roller. Move the lever so that you can freely look closer on the hole.

4. Notice because there could be a tiny paper shred stuck inside and this causes the sensor to detect a paper jam.

5. Get a small tweezer to remove that paper out.

6. Next, let the printer stand normally and return the tray back.

7. Re-plug all cables and start your printer. That's it!
