Question about Canon imageRUNNER 5000 Copier

1 Answer

I moved the copier and have a problem with an imagerunner 5000 S

I powered up the main unit and connected the finisher and recieved a message "check the finisher"

Also I receive a note on the screen top left with a tiangle fllowed by Reset unit 1.

There's an animated picture showing the font door of the copier opening and closing.

Is there something I can do to reset he machine?

Thank you
Tony Schweiker

I have canon ir3750. When I switch on the machine it goes to the start screen , The screen displays wait message, for about 3 minutes and than nothing happens and then the error code message comes up...

This is an error in the communication with the scanner. Check or reseat the connectors from the scanner , check to see if the scanner even moves during initialization ( power supply for it may be bad ), check/replace reader controller, scanner board, or main controller of copier. I've not seen this error before. Good luck.

The copier is saying: Turn the main power switch (on the main unit's right side) OFF & ON again. If the machine still does not operate normally, contact your service representative with the error...

The shutter open sensor does not go on. (The shutter does not open.)

1. Check the shutter home position sensor. Is it normal? 2. Check the wiring between the finisher controller PCB and the stack feeding motor and between the finisher controller PCB and the shutter open/close clutch. Is it normal? 3. Is there a fault in the shutter mechanism? 4. Try replacing the stack edging motor and the shutter open/close clutch.

Canon Imagerunner 5000 error E000001-0000

Sort of, since both are fuser temperature related. First, the error needs to be cleared. Turning off/on won't do that.

You could go into service mode and clear the error (*28* > copier> function > clear > err > ok. Then turn the copier off, then on again and watch it heat up. I always monitor the temperature to make sure it's in the acceptable range (190 C or around that range).

If it happens often I'd have the thermistors changed. If it still happens, check the connectors in back of the fuser. They may need to be shimmed.
