Question about Canon MF8050Cn AllInOne Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have a Canon MF85050 Image color class laser printer. It has given me one problem after another. The lasted problem is it won't print documents from the computer. It says it is not connected and check the power source. Yet 2 days ago it was working. It seems to work on and off. I have disconneted all cords and power and reconnected still it won't print. It is new but we had to buy another brand laser printer and it works every time. But that is only black and white. I thought a color laser printer would work. My husband has the back and white "brother" printer. So - I want to fix this! What suggestions?

    Your emailed solution won't work on my PC it is an IMAC with Intel 2. Any other solution? I have been using my husband "Bother" laser printer. But it only prints in black and white.

Won't print System Error E100 in window

E100 means a beam detect failure of the laser that "writes" the image to the drum. There are 3 logical causes. The laser scanner unit has failed.Next down the list is the DC controller has failed.Last, the Image Processing Board has failed. The code indicates the laser is not coming on which would lead you believe that it would be the primary cause.The laser unit has a detector inside that looks for the laser and reports success or failure to the image processing board.The DC controller is resposible for turning on the laser and its ouput. That's why there are at least 3 variables.
