Canon Error Codes.

Often error codes pop up on printers and multi-functional devices, causing wide spread panic, as the ‘workhorse’ of the office ceases to function.

Repeatedly the solutions are relatively simply to execute and can be done in-house, so we’ve compiled this list of error codes for the Canon devices and what the solution might be, e.g. paper jam, out of paper etc.

For all other queries, please do not hesitate to contact our ‘fiendishly good’ (that’s what our clients say about us!) Service Department at [email protected] or 01 4097034 for assistance.

Here are the most common error codes and what they mean:

Error Code

Problem

Solution

001 Different sized originals were scanned without setting the printer to Different Size Originals mode. Check the originals and the settings and try again.
001 There is a paper jam. Check for paper jam, check the originals, check the settings and try again.
001 Different sized originals were scanned in the 2-Sided Original mode without setting the Different Size Originals mode. Check the originals and the settings and try again.
003 Communication has taken longer than the preset time (64 minutes), which caused an error. Lower the resolution or divide the document into several parts OR when receiving a document, ask the other party to either reduce the resolution at which the document is scanned, or divide the document into two or more parts before sending it.
005 The recipient did not answer within 35 seconds. Confirm that the recipient’s machine is able to communicate, and then try again
012 The document could not be sent because the receiving fax machine was out of paper. Ask the recipient to load paper into their fax machine.
018 The recipient’s machine did not respond when your machine redialed. Confirm that the recipient’s machine is able to communicate, and then try again.
018 The documents could not be sent because the recipient’s machine was performing another task. Confirm that the recipient’s machine is able to communicate, and then try again.
018 The settings on your machine do not match the settings on the recipient’s machine. Confirm that the recipient’s machine is able to communicate, and then try again.
019 Sending could not be performed because the memory of the Remote Fax server machine became full when sending a fax from the Remote Fax client machine. Wait a few moments, and then try again after the other send jobs on the Remote Fax server machine are complete.
019 The document could not be sent because the memory of the machine is full. Delete unnecessary documents and documents with errors to make more memory available.
019 There was a problem with the scanned image when performing direct sending. Perform direct sending again.
022 Forwarding could not be performed because all of the addresses stored in the specified group destination have been deleted, or a mail box is specified as the group destination. Try sending again.
022 Transmission via fax driver is not allowed. [Allow Fax Driver TX] is set to ‘Off’. Set it to ‘On’.
025 A telephone line not connected to the Remote Fax server machine was specified when sending fax from the Remote Fax client machine. First, check the telephone line number for the server machine. Then, set the correct telephone line number for the server machine in Remote Fax TX Settings on the client machine.
033 The recipient’s machine does not support confidential sending or subaddresses. Send the document without using confidential sending or subaddresses.
034 The destination for confidential sending specified for the recipient’s machine did not exist. Check the destination for confidential sending in the recipient’s machine and try sending again.
035 The recipient’s machine does not support the forwarding function or sub addresses. Directly send to the forwarding destination.
040 Sending could not be performed because there was insufficient memory available in the Remote Fax server machine when sending a fax from the Remote Fax client machine. Erase unnecessary documents and documents with errors from the Remote Fax server machine to increase the amount of available memory.
040 Divide the sending operation into multiple batches instead of sending the document to all destinations at once. Lower the resolution, and then try sending the document again.
040 Divide the sending operation into multiple batches instead of sending the document to all destinations at once. Lower the resolution, and then try sending the document again.
054 The sending process was interrupted because the user phone number and user name were not registered. Register the user phone number and user name, and perform sending again.
