Sorter for Canon NP-6545

We are a non-profit organization that has one of these BP-6545 copiers that was donated for use in our office. The copier works great! (Has well over a million copies). Our problem is the sorter. Appears the motor does not work. We have some folks looking for the parts, however, they ar claiming there is no tag on the Sorter with S/N, Model, etc. Does anyone have any idea how to locate a sorter identification for this machine. We are gratful for any help. Thanks, Ron L.

Hello bohicarrl,
I tried to place a hyperlink in this field from the Canon website to see if I could go around their tight security regarding sharing of info. It just went to their tech website but was blank as far as data and gave no opportunity to navigate the site.I know this of little if any help but since the s/n and model sticker is missing I am left with this useless bit of info. That "older" model machine was marketed with it appears with 3 styles of sorter. And they only post the parts for 1 of them (I am surprised they even give that). But, the models were the K1,J1 and H1. The H1 is the one they still have posted and I would not want to try to give you part incorrect part numbers to repair a problem that we are not sure of. I am so sorry I could not be of more help. I don't work "FOR" FIXYA, I just try to help people by way of Fixya. I have been working on copiers for over twenty years at the end of a whip (lol) and i enjoy helping people at my pace and liesure. Take care and good luck. .........spinal..........

Does the canon NP6545 have a removable hard drive?

Hello Kevin,
No, this is an analog device. There are of course basic digital components that have resided on copiers for years, and there is a small amount of RAM that your copier uses. But there is absolutely no fear that your copier has A: a hard drive......B: anyway of retaining even the most simple image. The Canon "NP" series was the predecessor to the "IR" series that could brag to have a hard drive. Canon has had digital copiers since @ 1985 and was on the cutting edge of digital devices in that respect. But "on board " hard drives weren't on copiers available to the public at the time your copier was manufactured. One "give away" is sorter bins.If you have sorter bins that means your copier can't "remember" images and must scan your document every time it needs to deposit a redundant image it the cascading trays. Or, it will "recycle" the originals every time it needs to make a new set. If you can "scan once, print many" then you have a hard drive. Hope this helps. Take care. :-) SPINAL

Code e532 what is it and can i fix it


Errors that start with a E5xx is usually a fault with the sorter or finisher accessory.

Check that the accessory is not jammed or incorrectly mounted.

Try disconnecting it to see if the copier works without it.
