    Maybe. Do you know if you have the H1/K1 printer option or the R1/P1 kit? It should be on a label on the printer board and on the hard drive.

    BTW, if you pull out the PDL/IF pcb, (the board in the "cage" that the printer board connects to) then the copier will boot up without the error code and function as a copier only.

E677 is no system software on the hard drive of the Fiery Print controller. You may be able to find the system software at (but I doubt it). The System must be installed with a utility called PDL Downloader.

Error canon ir.6000 e0677

Sorry to say, but with a E0677 or E0644 it means that you are having a problem with your hard drive. You can try to flash the drive, but the HD will need to be replaced & flashed. The HD crashed. Good Luck

My computer is running very i decided that i need to erase all my hard drive where to go how to do it?:[

the first thing to consider is to check if you have a recovery disk and you have backed up all the important data, you can try and restore to the default factory settings and that will should solve the problems you might have some issues with the drivers but if you have a recovery disk you should be ok. The other solution would be to format the hard disk clean and do a fresh install of whichever operating system you prefere. I hope this helps and i have to add that I would need a lot more information to be able to help further. good luck

Hi, I've just bought a Sumvision Cyclone Primus 2TB and after connecting it to my laptop it installs the drivers. Once this is complete a Microsoft Windows pop-up comes up saying "you need to format...

Try putting the unit back on your laptop and using the windows disk management utility. The directions are below. Windows Vista is a bit differenct than either windows 7 or XP.

Right click on you "Computer" Icon in your start menu

A menu will open

Chose "Manage"

The Computer Management window will open

The Computer Management window is broken down into 3 sections.

The first section on the left side of the window shows a menu. Disk Management is on the lower portion of the menu.

The right side is separated into two sections, top and bottom. The top portion shows a list of active drives on the computer. The lower portion shows all drives connected to the computer. CD or DVD drives that have not disk will not show as active drives on the top section, but can be seen in the lower section.

The lower section will show the drive description, drive size and drive condition (online or off line) in small box on the left side of that section. Disk drives will designate a "Drive" and a number. Drive 0 is usually your internal hard drive. Then it would list drive 1, drive 2, etc, depending on how many internal and external drive sources you have connected to your computer. Then it will list your CD drives and generally show their drive letter assignments.

Next to the smaller section described above, is a larger section which shows the driver letter, size of the driver and condition (if working correctly will show "healthy")

This is the area you can right click and get a menu that will allow you to open, explore, mark the partition as active, change the driver letter, format the drive or delete a partition. (A note of caution here. Changing the driver letter on your main hard drive partition will cause windows to stop functioning. The main hard drive, or hard drive partition, is normally given the letter "C".) A hard drive may show two or more partitions with separate drive letters designated for each partition.

A drive that is having a problem may show that it needs to be formatted (status as Unformatted). This can be done from this window. An external drive, whether it is a hard drive or CD/DVD drive, can have the letter designator change done if you want to organize your external drives. There are times when a drive will not show up because the drive letter that they are programmed to use are taken. Most USB drives are programmed to us the letters "F" or "G". In this area, you can assign the USB drive any drive letter that is not being used and this will make it visible in windows.

See if this helps you manage the external disk and get it formatted so you can use it on your laptop.

If you found this answer helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

Chances are you haven't actually formatted the drive yet. If it hasn't been formatted you may get a code 'C-12CC'. This can be ignored in order to proceed to formatting the drive.

Bring the copier into service mode by first pressing the Utility key. Next, press the 'Counter List' button on the LCD. Now press 'Stop', then 0 and 0 again, 'Stop', then 0 and 1 (sequence: Stop->0->0->Stop->0->1). If the service code hasn't been changed, next enter 00000000 (eight zero's) and press 'Enter'.

Once in service mode press the 'Machine Adjust' button on the LCD screen, then 'Memory/Hard Disk Adjust', then 'Hard Disk Format'. Press 'Physical Format' since this is an initial format of a new drive. Now press the 'Start' key on the copier control panel to start the formatting process. Once the formatting is complete (this could take quite some time so be patient until you get an indication that the process has been completed) recycle the power.

If the format won't work, you may not have the right drive or the drive connected properly. If this is the case you can check the drive's connectivity by going back into service mode (as above), then press 'Machine Adjust', then 'Memory/Hard Disk Adjust' and 'Hard Disk R/W Check'. Press the 'Start' key on the copier control panel to start the check. If all is in order you will get a 'GO' indication at the end of the process. If there is a failure to read or write to the hard drive, you will get a 'NG' (no go) indication.

Hope this helps.

turn it off, hold down the 1 & 9 keys and turn it back on. The screen will cone up blank exept for a flashing block in the top left corner. Wait, for a long long time, 20-40 min or more, do not interupt it. The block will drop followed by another one, tetris style. When it is done it will say "download mode" . When it is done turn it off and back on. If this doesnt work (and there is a good chance it wont) then you need a new hard drive, which is not a job for an end user.
