Canon IRC 3100n error since sorter was removed

How can I reprogram the copier so it is not looking for the sorter. It keeps telling me to remove the paper in the tray that doesnt exist. I'm in REDONDO BEACH CA 90266 and I could use the help of a tech for a reasonable fee.

Wat is the problem E583

This is the sorter/finisher error therefore, it is related to the stacker. So remove and disconnect the sorter or ask the technician to look and check the main motor for the sorter if okey, then the stack sensors for the sorter must be checked if in position and comes ON withing specified time..

Error e000004-0010 how to solve

I'm not a Canon Copier Tec but I know E04's on Canons generally means heat/fuser error - ie fuser, usally fuser lamp, thermister or thermal fuse. Have fuser replaced.

Have it looked at, due to it requiring electrical knowledge, ie test heater lamp(open), thermal fuse(open), thermister(check for toner built up on face) with the user removed from printer (fuser=hot bit that paper goes threw, just before where paper exits to go to sorter) or just replace assem.

There maybe a reset required, on some canon models after problem has been fixed.

So here is a link with explaination of the reset on a canon model simular to yours

How do you detach the sorter from a canon np 6551. I've removed the screws and unplugged it. Is there a disconnect button or switch - I can see where it is connected with a metal "finger" but I can't get...

If you can remove the top cover from the sorter, you will see what holds the sorter to the copier. There are two brackets with 1 screw each. The screws are vertical into brackets. After removing both screws, each bracket will pivot away from the copier to free the sorter. Hiope this helps. PS. 1 bracket towards front, 1 bracket towards rear.

Error code E522. How to fix this?

You have an issue with your staple finisher, probably need to inspect the stapler unit itself to make sure nothing is jammed in it and it moves freely. If you can't clear the error then most likely the unit is defective.

Hope this helps,

Canon NP6560 getting error message E502

The error code has to do with you soret/finisher. Are the bins moving smoothly up & down? If not you may have a broken bin, also did you just have a paper jam and may be did not remover all of them? Also, did you check for a jamed staple? You can try this it may work..... Turn the copier Off and unplug the sorter and turn it back On. It may clear the code. When the copier comes to Ready turn it Off and reinstall the sorter back it to the copier and turn it back On. If it dose not work you may need a repair tech out to solve it

Check your stapler. If you removed a jam from the sorter you may have accidentally moved the stapler so it is not sitting at a 45 degree angle when you open the front door of the sorter. There's a little lever you can push to swivel the stapler, however don't try to force it. You may have to pry up the plastic lock that is under the stapler with a small screwdriver. Sometimes the stapler assy has to partially removed (slid to the front) of the sorter to be able to see what you're doing.
