Error message E100

I'm getting an E100 error on our machine.The scanner light only goes halfway, and returns to the starting position and then the E100 error comes up.I was an electronic technician for twenty years, but I have never repaired a printer copier before-I am currently a business owner/partner and if possible, I'd like to repair it myself whether it is an electronic or mechanical problem.Thank you!.......dr

    as with the others, my copier comes on, asks what size page I would like, then the alarm sounds and the error message E100 comes up; it is then impossible to perform any function at all or to get any button to respond. I have tried turning the machine off however the same situation just repeats and repeats. I have only just bought the copier second-hand and have not been able to use it at all; could the move have caused the problem....according to the previous owner it was in perfect working order and had recently been serviced, thank you.

Sorry I couldn't find a free one anywhere, but here you can get the service manual for all the other canon pc models for $11.99 if that would be any use to you; Also had no luck with a user manual, canon do not appear to acknowledge this product on any of their sites that i have found although it is listed in many other places. It does sound like a mechanical problem though - somehow the drive belt or pulley is out of sync, blocked by something or damaged - Hope this helps :)

Error E100

The most common cause for E100 is the drum unit. At the rear of the drum unit should be a small peg pointing into the machine. This gets broken off. It's purpose is to opperate a laser cut off shield when the drum is removed so to prevent laser exposure. If peg is missing laser will not be detected by the system and give E100. Can be repaired or will require a new drum if it has done more than 40 to 60K copies.

Machine error AE on brother MFC 6800

The error is from the scanner. It is possible the scanner lock on the underside of the scanner has shifted and not allowing the scanner to correctly return to the home position. Try Checking the scanner lock and make sure it is not in the locked position. Then turn off and on your machine while holding the menu/set button. the machine will come up either with an error or in maintenance mode. either way enter 99 and see what you get. Maintenance mode is a dangerous place to play around in. 99 exits maintenance mode. 91 resets all parameters to factory setting except stored locations like phone numbers and location information. 01 resets every thing to factory. DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING IN MAINTENANCE MODE. CCDHP is scanner home position sensor. It will probably reset just by turning the machine off and on.
good luck.
