    Hello,

    Is there anyone who might have worked on a Minolta RP603Z microfilm
    reader/printer over the years? I have a machine that is giving a
    constant C2 error (High Voltage transformer malfunction error). This
    problem used to occur very intermittently but has now become constant.
    Any ideas?

    No one anywhere near here knows how to fix this old machine and I would
    like to get it going for the local Genealogy centre

    TIA

  2. Does it work or not when it errors out?

    I'm not familiar with the machine, but have had the same problem with
    other machines (different error code number but the same error). The
    most common cause if it is laser based would be the corona wire shorting
    or arcing against metal. Certain models of Toshiba copiers have this
    problem often.

    Thanks for that, I'll check it and make sure there isn't some
    contamination etc in that area.

    Hi Homer,

    Error stops the machine instantly when it appears. Paper is part way
    through when this happens but the error code is not paper related. On
    this machine all error code stop the machine instantly.

    The problem sounds exactly like what happens to Toshiba copiers. They
    also stop working with the paper part way through. A quick fix is to
    either shorten the corona wire or shorten tne tensioner spring. The
    error code on them is C970
