That code indicates that there is a problem with the waste toner bottle either being too full, which means that it must be either emptied or replaced, or that the sensor that senses the amount of toner is defective. You should have got an E-31 code in conjunction the C-7 980. the only thing that you can do is change the waste toner bottle, after that you're going to have to get technical help in person. Sorry. Let me know if this helps.

E 07 is indeed the waste toner bottle that is to full! The solution is simple but messy. Remove the drum unit from the machine, at this point it would be wise to seperate the drum and developer tank. You do this by inserting a small flat screwdriver into the piepie that is atached to a pressure spring, it is located on the side of the assembly were the two units join. Note there is one on each side of the unit! On the drum section there is a piece of plastic covvering that is held inplace with a screw. this cover is on the side of the drum towards the front end. Be carefull, alot of used toner is going to be spilt now. To assemble just follow instructions in reverse. If by a chance you replace the drum unit back into the machine and it does not work anymore. Then run the DEV setting again! Hope this clears things up and is of help!

My photocopier km 3060 displays error code c0120.what is the problem and the solution

I have found a list of error codes at the link below and your code is described as;
Drum EEPROM error Reading from or writing to EEPROM cannot be performed. Poor contact in the connector terminals. Defective drum unit. Error Codes Kyocera Mita KM3060
It looks therefore like a drum unit problem which probably requires a replacement drum unless you can check and improve the contacts in the connector terminals.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Kyocera Mita 1500 Error code 6000

This C6000 error code is triggered by a few things all having to do with the fixing heater wire. Ask your technician to check the thermistor, the thermal cutout and the connection between the thermistor and the power supply board. My guess would be that the power surge overloaded the power supply board. This is not something that can be reset and may require new parts.
The manuals that describe the error codes are only available to Kyocera technicians, sorry.
