    C-1105 on FS-534 in Filthy Environment

    This post is just an FYI. We have a 287 in the dirtiest environment I've ever seen in my 31 years servicing copiers and I've seen some REALLY dirty environments over the years. The C-1105 code first appeared on this machine after it was in their office for about a year and a half. I cleaned the sensors and put the belt back on and it lasted for another 4 months before coding again. Each time, the belt comes off the drive gear for the eject assy. It comes off because so much gritty dirt gets in the tracks, the arm assy. just gets stuck coming up on the back side. The only fix is to clean the 4 tracks involved as good as possible (I use long wooden shafted cotton swabs), including around the u-turn at the back where it gets stuck. Then lube the tiny white rollers and pivot points on each side. I've gotten this fix to last a year and that's about the best that can be expected in the environment it's in.

    Since pictures are worth a thousand words, here is one I cobbled together on my phone after going on this call with the same code a year after the last time.

    Started in the copier service business in the fall of 1988 and have worked at the same company since then, now the senior tech, since 2004.

    It's in the shipping office of a galvanizing plant. It's open to the plant and outdoors probably 30-40% of the time. It is something special. I usually have to wash my coat or jacket when i get home (in the winter) just because there is no clean surface to put it on. I have to leave the cleaning rag out of my toolbox just so I can clean the outside of it so I don't get dirt all over my pants on the way out.

    I used to have Canon faxes in an iron foundry. These were the only Canons I ever worked on with black covers, and black everything else. And everything in the office was black too. In my naivete, on the first visit I scrubbed all the covers to get the beige back. Before I'd left it was mostly black again. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Worst one I had was in a factory that made disc brake pads.

    You could literally taste the dust when you walked in and the stuff stuck to your skin and was a pain to clean off.

    I can only guess that the life expectancy of the workers there was quite low as I never saw any of them wear a face mask, ever!

    Looks about identical to the ones I have out at a remote mine in Alaska. Thankfully, I don't have any more "underground" machines, but the ones located in the Ball Mill look exactly like yours. It's bad enough that I won't sell them a brand new machine, because it's too cruel to place a pristine device in such an environment.

    Having the same issue. I know this is an old post, but I've been having the same error code, same finisher, on a c368, and you guessed it, a dirty location, a 2nd floor office area inside a refinery plant. I'm glad to have found this post, however, this ejector piece came off one of the belts and after trying to put it back on, I've had to order the torsion coil spring for it. Should I just go ahead and replace the entire Ejector Unit (p/n: A3EPPPDE04)?

    I got you beat..this is a phosphate mine..This is a machine inside a building..People work here without and breathing protection..The acid in the air condenses to a powder, gets sucked into machine..You can write you freaking name in this..The acid also corrodes board contacts. And this is only 1 of 1/2 dozen machines subjected to this..When my tech sent me these I was like "are these outside the building". I don't rememebr the exact name of the chemical, but it's used in fire extinguishers, except on airplanes because it will eat aluminum frames..

    I'd replace the whole ejector unit, pita but saves a callback next week.
    We know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two.
