1. Paper feed section
The paper feed system is in two ways: the tray feed and the manual
feed. The cassette is of the universal type and has the capacity of
250 sheets. It is attached and detached at the front cabinet, that is,
the front loading system.
The manual paper feed is single for the SF-2314 and multi for the
SF-2414/2514. (The multi paper feed unit (SF-MF14) is an option for
the SF-2314 only.)
In addition to the standard cassette (250 sheets), the optional cassette module (SF-CM14, 250 sheets) can be added.
ON
(Tray paper feed operation)
The cassette paper feed clutch (CPFC) turns on, the paper feed roller
shaft, the paper feed roller, and the takeup roller rotate. At the same
time, the roller release arm is lowered by the limiter spring. As a
result, the takeup roller falls by its own weight to reach the paper
surface, performing the paper feed operation.
When the PPD turns on, the MPFS turns off and the RRC turns on.
Almost simultaneously the MPFC turns off to return the roller and the
gate to the initial state.

2. Separation, transport section
4. Developer section
After passing the resist roller section, the paper is transported to the
transfer section. After transfer, the paper is separated from the drum
by the separation electrode and the drum separation pawl, then
transported to the fuser section by the transport belt.
4-1. General descriptions
(1) Two-component developer
The developer is composed of toner and carrier.
Carrier serves as a medium for attaching toner onto the electrostatic
image on the photoconductor drum.
By stirring toner and carrier, they are rubbed to be charged positive
(+) and negative (–) respectively.
Since developer will deteriorate to degrade copy quality, it should be
replaced regularly.
(2) Two-component magnetic brush development
The rotatable non-magnetic sleeve is provided over the magnet roller
and is rotated.
Carrier forms a magnetic brush on the sleeve surface by magnetic
force to attach toner onto the electrostatic image on the photoconductor drum.
(3) Developing bias
3. Fuser, paper exit section
When the photoconductor is charged and exposed to light (exposure), the surface potential (voltage) of the photoconductor will not
be lost completely. (The residual potential remains.)
Toner is attracted to the photoconductor by this residual potential,
dirtying the photoconductor. As a result, a dirty copy of white background is generated.
To prevent against this, a voltage of the same polarity and higher
than the residual potential is applied to the MG roller, preventing toner
from being attached to the photoconductor surface.
The toner image transferred on the paper is fused by the heat and
pressure of the upper and the lower heat rollers. After fusing, discharge static electricity on the paper with the discharge brush. Then
the paper is discharged to the copy tray.

5. Optical system
5-1. General descriptions
• The optical system is composed
of the fixed focus lens and six
mirrors.
Since the fixed focus lens is employed, No.4/No. 5 mirror base is
moved as well as the lens to change the distance between the
document and the drum (OID, Original Image Distance) for reduction and enlargement.
To move the lens and No.4/No. 5 mirror unit, he stepping motor is
driven by the signal from the main control PWB to allow zooming
of 0.70 to 1.22 (inch series: 0.64 ∼ 1.29) with 1% increment. (The
SF-2314 has no zooming function, and its lens and No.4/No.5
mirror base are fixed.)

Exposure is adjusted by changing the voltage of the copy lamp.
The copy lamp unit is provided with the AE sensor for detection of
the original density to adjust the light quantity of the copy lamp
according to the original density.

For exposure, the slit exposure system is employed where the light
source is moved. (The original table is fixed.)

(5) Lens home position sensor (LHPS)
This sensor is used to sense the lens position. The sensor output
signal serves as the basic signal to control the copy magnification
ratio.
(6) Lens base
The lens is mounted to this lens base. It is moved in the paper feed
direction in reduction copying, and in the paper exit direction in enlargement copying.
5–3
(7) Lens drive shaft
5-2. Basic operations
This shaft is to control the optical axis of the lens in zoom copying.
The lens follows on the slide base shaft.
(Relationship among the original, the lens and the image in each
magnification ratio)
Normal copy: The distance between the surface of original on the
table glass and the lens is made equal to the distance
between the lens and the exposure surface of the
photoconductor to make the original and the image
equal to each other.
(8) Lens drive wire
The wire is used to drive the lens base and the 4/5 mirror base.
(9) No. 4/5 mirror base
The No. 4/5 mirror is installed to this base. It is moved in zoom
copying in order to fit the distance between the original and the
photoconductor.
(10) Mirror motor
The mirror motor is a stepping motor, and used to move the copy
lamp unit and the No. 2/3 mirror base in order to obtain the rpm
corresponding to each magnification ratio.
(11) Mirror home position sensor (MHPS)
Used to sense the home position of the copy lamp unit. This sensor is
a photo transmission type sensor.
Enlargement copy: The lens is nearer to the original when compared
with the normal copy to shorten the distance between the original surface and the lens.
The No. 4/5 mirror base is positioned further
away from the lens to increase the distance between the lens and the exposure surface of the
photoconductor.
The distance between the original and the exposure surface of the photoconductor is greater
than that in the normal copy.
(12) No. 2/3 mirror base
The No. 2/3 mirrors are attached to this base. The mirror base is
scanned by the mirror motor.
(13) Copy lamp unit
This is composed of No. 1 mirror, the thermal fuse, the copy lamp,
the exposure adjustment plate, and the reflector, and is scanned by
the mirror motor.
(14) Thermal fuse
The thermal fuse is closely attached to the reflector in order to
prevent against abnormal temperature rise in the optical system. In
case of abnormal temperature rise, the power for the copy lamp is
turned off.
100V system (117˚C)
200V system (117˚C)
(15) Reflector
Reduction copy: When compared with the normal copy, the lens
comes closer to the photoconductor to increase the
distance between the original and the lens. The
distance between the lens and the exposure surface of the photoconductor is decreased.
The No. 4/5 mirror base is positioned further away
from the lens.
The distance between the original and the exposure
surface of the photoconductor is longer than that in
the normal copy.
Light from the copy lamp is reflected onto the original.
(16) Exposure adjustment plates
Three exposure adjustment plates are attached to the copy lamp unit
to adjust the exposure balance in the front and the rear frame direction.
(17) Mirror base drive wire
This wire is used to transmit the drive power of the mirror motor to the
copy lamp unit and the No. 2/3 mirror base to scan the mirror base.
(18) Lens drive motor
This is a stepping motor, which is used to move the lens and the No.
4/5 mirror base.
(19) AE sensor
The original density is detected with the intensity of the copy lamp
light reflected from the original. The measurement area is the mirror
base scan area of about 100mm at the center.
The element is a photo diode.
5–4
(Optical system dirt correction)
The SF-2314/2414 perform dirt correction by changing the copy lamp
intensity according to the dirt degree in the optical system (the copy
lamp unit, No. 1 mirror, No.2 mirror, No.3 mirror) to prevent against
remarkable degrading of copy quality.
The reference value is the AE sensor output value which is obtained
when the reference plate is exposed with the copy lamp voltage of
67.7V (135.4V) at power ON.
This value is checked with sim 44-02.

Step 2 (Discharging)
When the OPC drum is exposed to the discharge lamp light, positive
and negative charges are generated in the OPC drum CGL. The
negative charges move to the positive charges generated in the
aluminum layer in step 1, and the positive charges move to the
negative charges on the OPC drum surface charged in step 1. The
positive charges and the negative charges are neutralized each other
in the aluminum layer and on the OPC drum surface. As a result, the
OPC drum surface potential becomes 20V ∼ 30V.

5–7
Step 3 (Main Charging)
By negative discharging of the main charger, uniform negative charges are applied to the OPC drum surface.
The OPC drum surface potential is controlled by the screen grid
voltage to maintain the grid voltage at a constant level.
•
When the drum surface potential is lower than the grid voltage,
electric charges generated by discharging of the charger go
through the screen grid to charge the drum surface potential until it
becomes equal to the grid voltage.
•
When the drum surface potential virtually reaches the grid potential
level, electric charges generated by discharging of the charger
flows through the electrode of the screen grid to the high voltage
unit grid voltage output circuit, thus always maintaining the drum
surface potential at a level virtually equal to the grid voltage.
•
The main corona unit employs the scorotron system to charge the
photoconductor surface to a certain level uniformly.
In addition, the conventional corona wire is replaced with the
corona charging mechanism by saw-teeth plate (stainless steel
plate of 0.1 mm thick). In corona discharge, oxygen molecules in
the air are ionized to generate ozone (O3). The mechanism restrict
the generation of ozone.

Step 4 (Exposure)
Light from the copy lamp is radiated on the document, and the optical
image of the document is reflected by the mirrors and projected
through the lens to the OPC drum.
The lighter portion of the document reflects more light (high intensity)
to the OPC drum, and the darker portion of the document reflect less
light (low intensity) to the OPC drum. Positive or negative charges are
generated in the CGL of the OPC drum where lights are radiated.
Negative charges generated in the CGL move towards the positive
charges in the aluminum layer generated in step 3. While the positive
charges in the CGL move towards the negative charges on the CPU
drum surface generated in step 3. Therefore, positive charges and
negative charges are neutralized in the aluminum layer and the OPC
drum surface at the light radiating position, decreasing the OPC drum
surface potential. The CGL electric charge generating amount increases in proportion to the document density, that is, reflected light
intensity (the OPC drum surface intensity). Therefore, electric charges are generated less in the CGL layer corresponding to the lighter
density of document (higher intensity of the OPC drum surface), and
a greater quantity of the negative charges on the OPC drum surface
is neutralized, decreasing the OPC drum surface potential more.
On the contrary, electric charges are generated more in the CGL
layer corresponding to the darker density of document (lower intensity
of the OPC drum surface), and less quantity of the negative charges
on the CPU drum surface is neutralized, decreasing the OPC drum
surface less. Therefore, the OPC drum surface potential corresponding to the lighter portion of the document is lower, and that corresponding to the darker portion of the document is higher. Latent
static-electricity images are formed in the above manner.

Step 5 (Development)
Toner is attached to the latent static-electricity images on the drum
surface to change them to visible images. The two-component magnetic brush development system charges toner positively by friction
with carriers, and toner is attached to negative charges on the drum
surface. The potential in the darker document projecting area (low
intensity) is high (much negative charges) and attracts more toner.
The potential in the lighter document projecting portion (high intensity) is low (less negative charges), and attracts less toner.

the residual voltage (about –80V to –100V) in the lighter portion after
exposure.

Step 6 (Transfer)
The transfer paper is charged higher than the OPC drum surface
potential by strong negative discharge of the transfer charger, making
the binding force between the transfer paper and toner stronger than
that between the drum and toner, attracting toner to the transfer
paper.

Step 7 (Separation)
After transfer, the copy paper and the drum are negatively charged.
Since, however, the negative potential of the copy paper is higher
than that of the drum, a attraction force is applied between the drum
and the copy paper. To avoid this, AC corona is applied to the copy
paper by the separation charger to decrease the copy paper potential
to the same level as the drum surface potential. The attraction between the copy paper and the drum is weakened by this, allowing
separation of the copy paper by its own extending force. If the copy
paper is not separated by the separation charger, it is separated by
the separation pawl mechanically.

Step 9 (Discharging)
When the OPC drum is exposed to the discharge lamp light, positive
and negative charges are generated in the OPC drum CGL. The
negative charges generated in the CGL move towards the residual
positive charges in the aluminum layer, while the positive charges in
the CGL move towards the residual negative charges on the OPC
drum surface. Therefore, the positive and the negative charges are
neutralized in the aluminum layer and on the OPC drum surface,
removing the residual charges on the OPC drum surface. As a result,
the OPC drum surface potential becomes 20V ∼ 30V.

(5) Process correction system
1) Outline of the correction system
This model is provided with the correction system for the optical unit
and the photoconductor drum unit. The combination of the two correction systems provides stable clear copy.
These functions are to maintain the copy quality for a long time and to
correct the characteristics of the parts, and are controlled by the
software and invisible from the outside.

Drum rotating time
The photoconductor drum is subject to mechanical stress by the
cleaning blade, resulting in wear in the OPC layer. In addition to that,
the photoconductor drum receives optical stress from the copy lamp.
These stresses reduce the photo sensitivity of the photoconductor
drum, producing unnecessary dirt copy. This trouble is removed by
adjusting the copy lamp voltage. For this model, however, to reduce
the number of service calls, the copy lamp voltage is automatically
dropped according to the reduction in the photo sensitivity of the
photoconductor drum to correct it.
The drum rotating time from installation of a new photoconductor
drum is counted by the timer and the copy lamp voltage is corrected
in every mode. (Refer to Fig. 3.)
The correction is performed within the range of the max. supply voltage of the copy lamp. (The rotating time of the photoconductor drum
can be checked with Simulation 44-4.)
* The correction level is initialized by Simulation 46 or by replacing
the photoconductor drum.
* Replace the OPC drum for every 40K copies. After replacement,
be sure to reset the drum count value to "0" with SIM 24-7.
The replacement timing of the OPC drum is indicated by lighting
the OPC drum replacement lamp. The copy count of the OPC
drum can be checked with SIM 22-12.

The purpose of this correction is to maintain the copy density even
though the optical unit is contaminated and to reduce troublesome
cleaning of the optical unit.
When the lamp, the mirror, and the reflector are dirtied with dusts and
toner, the light quantity radiated to the photoconductor drum is
reduced, increasing the copy density and producing unnecessary
background copy.
The above trouble is removed by changing the copy lamp voltage to
adjust the copy density. It, however, requires serviceman’s operation.
In this model, the AE sensor senses dirt on the copy lamp, the mirror,
and the reflector, and the copy lamp light quantity is changed according to the dirt level to reduce the change in the copy density due to
the optical unit dirt.
When the optical parts are dirtied, the reflection rate is reduced to
reduce the quantity of light which is passed to the optical dirt sensor.
In this manner the dirt level is sensed.

(3) Image distortion adjustment
There are following two types of image distortion.
* Horizontal image distortion
* Vertical image distortion
Image distortion is generated mainly by insufficient parallelism of the
mirror and misalignment of the lens optical axis.
In this model, image distortion is adjusted by adjusting parallelism of
each mirror.
a. Horizontal image distortion adjustment

I. Summary
This adjustment is to adjust horizontal image distortion by setting
the horizontal optical axis of the copier and the horizontal optical
axis of each mirror in parallel with each other. The relative positions of the front frame and the scanner unit drive pulley of the
frame are changed to perform the above adjustment.
2) Remove the document glass.
Install the No. 1 and No. 2 scanner units to the specified positions, adjust the mechanical horizontal parallelism, and perform
the final adjustment while making copies.
3) Loosen the fixing screw of the No. 1 scanner unit wire.
II. Purpose
The purpose of this adjustment is to reduce horizontal image
distortion by setting the horizontal optical axis of the copier and
the No. 1 and No. 2 scanner unit horizontal optical axis in parallel with each other.

III. Note
Before starting this adjustment, the following items must have
been completed. If not, this adjustment cannot reduce image
distortion.
* The lens unit right angle adjustment must have been completed.
* The No. 4/5 mirror unit right angle adjustment must have
been completed.
IV. Cases when the adjustment is required
1) When the No. 1 and No. 2 scanner units are disassembled or
their part is replaced.
Wire fixing screw
2) When the scanner unit drive section is disassembled or its
part is replaced.
4) Manually turn the scanner unit drive gear to bring No. 2
scanner unit into contact with No. 2 scanner unit positioning
plate. When No.2 scanner unit makes contact with No.2
scanner unit positioning plate in the rear frame side simultaneously, the mechanical parallelism of No.2 scanner unit is
proper.
If one side of No.2 scanner unit makes contact with No.2
scanner unit positioning plate and the other side does not,
the parallelism is improper.
If the parallelism is improper, perform the procedure of step
5).

I. Summary
This adjustment is to adjust parallelism of the vertical optical axis
of the copier and that of each mirror to eliminate vertical image
distortion.
For adjusting vertical image distortion, the overall adjustment
and the right-left balance adjustment must be performed independently.
The overall adjustment is performed by changing the height of
No.4/5 mirror unit in the front frame side. The right-left balance
adjustment is performed by changing the right-left balance of
No.2 scanner unit rail.
The right-left balance adjustment must be performed in advance
to the overall adjustment.

I. Summary
In order to adjust the copy image position on a copy paper, the
lead edge position of an image on the photoconductor for the
lead edge position of a document on the document table is
changed with simulations 50-1, and the relative position of the
paper to the image position on the photoconductor is changed.
In the models which have no zoom copy functions, however, the
lead edge position of an image on the photoconductor for the
lead edge position of a document on the document table is not
changed.
The relative position of the paper is changed at OFF timing of
the scanner home position sensor after starting scanning to adjust the copy image position on the paper.
On the SF-2514, to adjust the copy image position on a copy
paper, the lead edge position of an image on the photoconductor for the lead edge position of a document on the SPF is
changed with simulations 50-1.
After adjusting the copy image position with the above procedure, the M.C grid OFF timing for the lead edge position of an
image on the photoconductor is changed with simulations 45-1
to adjust the void area.

5) Make a copy in the same manner as procedure 2), and
check the uniformity.
Repeat procedures 1) to 5) until proper uniformity is obtained.
VII. Troubles caused by improper adjustment
II. Purpose
The purpose of this adjustment is to improve separation in the
photoconductor section and in the fuser section and reduce dirt
on the fuser section pawl by obtaining the max. effective copy
area and the paper void area.
III. Note
If the proper void area is not obtained, the separation ability in
the photoconductor section may be degraded and dirt on the
fuser section pawl may be increased.
Before performing this adjustment, the following adjustments
must have been completed. If not, this adjustment cannot be
performed properly.
* Adjustment of paper pressure against the SPF resist roller
(Sim 51-2 set value must be properly set.)
* Adjustment of the copy image position on the copy paper

and to change the copy image position on the copy paper.
When the set value is changed by
"1," the copy image position is
changed by about 0.123 mm.
When the set value is made greater,
the copy image position for the copy
paper moves backward. When the set
value is made greater, the copy

This simulation adjusts the copy image position for the
paper. One of the set adjustment values is displayed on the
COPIES SELECTED display.
Adjustment value A: Corresponds to the time interval from
(SF-2414/2514)
the scanner unit starting and the
scanner home position sensor OFF to
reaching at the lead edge of the document. That is, this is the value used to
determine the optical document lead
edge reference position, and it must
be fit with the edge section of the
document reference plate.
If this value is improper, when the
copy magnification ratio is changed,
the copy image lead edge position for
the copy paper edge will fluctuate.
(Does not exist in the models which
have no zoom copy functions.)
Use the paper tray select key to select the display of adjustment value A, adjustment value B, and to select the set

According to this value, the paper
feed timing for the image on the
photoconductor drum is changed and
the copy image position on the copy
paper is also changed.
When the set value is changed by "1,"
the position of the copy image on the
copy paper is changed by about
0.123 mm.
When the set value is made greater,
the copy image position for the copy
paper moves backward. When the set
value is made greater, the copy image
position for the copy paper moves forward.

VI. Adjustment procedure
(Lead edge void area adjustment)
b. Void area adjustment
I. Summary
The copy image position on the copy paper is adjusted with
simulations 50-1, then the main corona grid ON timing for the
image lead edge on the photoconductor is changed with simulations 45 to adjust the lead edge void area.
In concrete, in the case of the document table mode, the adjustment is performed by changing the time interval from the scanner motor ON to the main corona grid ON. In the case of the
SPF mode, the adjustment is performed by changing the time
interval from the SPF resist roller ON to the main corona grid
ON.
On the other hand, the rear edge void is adjusted by varying the
OFF timing of the main corona grid after the PPD detects the
rear edge of paper and turns off.
There are two kinds of the rear edge void adjustment. One is in
the tray paper feed mode, and the other is in the manual paper
feed mode.
Selection of the adjustment mode is made by the paper feed unit
select button and the display lamp.

II. Purpose
The purpose of this adjustment is to improve separation in the
photoconductor section and in the fuser section and reduce dirt
on the fuser section pawl by obtaining the max. effective copy
area and the proper void area.
3) Set the adjustment value to "99."
Enter "99" with the numeric key, and press PRINT button.
III. Note
If the proper void area is not obtained, the separation ability in
the photoconductor section may be degraded and dirt on the
fuser section pawl may be increased.
Before performing this adjustment, the following adjustment
must have been completed. If not, this adjustment cannot be
performed properly.
4) With the document cover open, make several copies at
100%.
* Adjustment of paper pressure against the resist roller

Description
Used to adjust contact pressure between paper and the main body resist roller
or the SPF resist roller. (Amount of paper buckle at the resist roller)
Change the set value when the shift between the paper and the image varies.
(Operation/procedure)
When the simulation key operation is performed, the currently set value is
displayed on the COPIES SELECTED display.
Enter the set value with the numeral key and press the print button, and the
entered set value will be stored in the main PWB RAM.
The standard set value is 25. (Main body) 25 (SPF)
Tray paper feed mode:
Tray (upper) paper feed lamp ON
Manual paper feed mode: Manual paper feed lamp ON
SPF mode:
Upper and lower cassette paper feed lamps ON
The set value corresponds to the time interval between when the paper detector (PPD/SPPD) in front of the main body resist roller detects paper and when
the transport roller (TRC/SPFC) turns off.
The greater this time interval is, the greater the contact pressure between the
paper and the resist roller is.
@ The time interval can be set. The
greater the time interval is, the
greater the contact pressure between the paper and the resist
PPD
( SPPD)
roller is. If the contact pressure is
TRC
too great, a paper jam may occur.
(SPFC)
If the contact pressure is too
small, variations of image position
for the copy paper becomes
greater. This must be adjusted according to the paper quality.

The lens shift amount in zoom copy is changed to provide suitable magnification ratio.
There is a slight variation in each lens focal distance. If the lenses are shifted
in a same amount in zoom copy, suitable magnification ratio may not be
obtained. To correct this, therefore, each lens is shifted according to its focal
distance.
The lens must be shifted in accordance with its focal distance in zoom copy,

When the print button is pressed again, the copy lamp applying voltage changes from 80V (160V) to 50V (100V) by the increment of 5V. The AE sensor
output characteristics at that time are stored in the main PWB RAM.
At that time, the AE sensor gain is automatically adjusted.
This operation must be performed before the copy density adjustment in the

(Operation/procedure)
The adjustment is performed by changing the three set values A, B, and C.
The zoom machine has two set values, the SPF machine three, but the
normal machine only one.
When the simulation key operation is performed, warming-up is performed
and the ready lamp is lighted. Then the currently set value is displayed on the
COPIES SELECTED display. In the case of the zoom machine, there are
three set values. Every time when the tray select key is pressed, set values A,
B, and C is displayed in turn. In this case, the pause lamp status allows
monitoring the three set values.

Set all three set values A, B, and C to "0", make copies at 64% and 129% and
measure the shift between the copy paper lead edge and the copy image. Put
the measure values into the following formulas to obtain the rough values of A
and B.
L1 = Shift between 129% copy paper lead edge and copy image (mm)
L2 = Shift between 64% copy paper lead edge and copy image (mm)
L3 = Shift between SPF mode 10% copy paper lead edge and copy image
(mm) (Only in the SPF model)
A = 8.2423 x (L1 – L2)
It corresponds to the time required for the scanner to reach the document lead
edge image position from starting scanning.
It is, in other word, the value used to determine the optical position of the
document lead edge reference position of the document table, and must be
fitted to the edge section of the document reference plate.
If this value is not proper, the distance between the copy image lead edge and
the purpose edge is varied when the copy magnification ration is varied.
B = 16.0568 x L2 – 7.9661 x L1 (Only in the zoom model)
It corresponds to the timer required for the resist roller (RRC) to turn on from
when the scanner started scanning and reached the optical document lead
edge reference position.
This set value is used to determine the paper feed timing for the image
position on the OPC drum, and the relationship between the paper and the
image is changed.
C = 8.0906 x L3 (timer value) (Only in the SPF machines)
This set value is used to change the paper feed timing for the scanning start
timing (the image position on the OPC drum), and to change the relationship
between the paper and the image position.

B) Auto off mode (The energy-saving effect is greater than the
preheat mode. The machine enters this mode after passing a
certain time from completion of copying. When, however, the
machine is temporarily stopped by paper jam, paper empty, toner
empty (with the toner supply lamp ON), etc., the machine does not
enter this mode.)
(1) Energy saving function
There are two specifications of energy saving: International EnergyStar specifications, and the specifications for the other areas where it
is not required. It can be selected with the serviceman simulation.
(Only the software specification can be selected. Since the power
switch and machine mechanism are different, the machine of the
International EnergyStar specifications cannot be changed into the
machine of the other specifications.)
To save the power consumption, the energy saving function operates
when a certain time is passed under certain conditions.
There are following two modes of the energy saving.
•
The power switch is turned off to stop power supply to the
machine.
•
•
All the LED lamps on the operation panel are turned off.
•
The time from completion of the auto off mode to turning off of the
energy-saving lamp after returning to the ready state is the same
as the max. warm-up time after turning on the power.
[International EnergyStar specifications]
A) Preheat mode (The machine enters this mode after passing a
certain time from completion of the final operation.)
•
The fusing section temperature is lower than the normal ready
state.
•
•
The fan speed is reduced. (Patent avoidance)
•
Preheat is terminated when any operation is made (key input,
cassette loading, original setting, or other operation which the
machine can detect). The energy-saving lamp blinks. At the same
time, the fusing section temperature rises to the copy ready level
within 10 sec.
When the power switch is turned on, the auto off mode is terminated and the energy-saving lamp blinks.
At that same time, all the display lamps including the ready lamp
are turned on and the fusing section temperature rises to allow
copying.
@ Time
required to enter the preheat mode or auto off mode and
cancellation of the mode can be set by the user program. (For
details, refer to the descriptions on the user program.)
For cancellation of the auto off mode, however, the significance of
International EnergyStar is described on the Operation manual to
guide the user not to cancel the function as far as possible.
The energy-saving lamp is turned on and the other display lamps
are also turned on. (Including the ready lamp.)

(3) Start/stop control circuit
1 General
The circuit senses ON/OFF state of the power source to control
start/stop of the circuits.
The DC power section supplies power voltages (VH=+32V, VB=+24V,
VC=+10V, VD1=5V, VD2=5V).
After the power voltage reaches the specified level, the circuit operation is started. Before the power voltage falls below the specified
level, the circuit operation is stopped, preventing against malfunctions.

(4) Heater lamp control circuit
1 General
The heater lamp control circuit detects the heat roller surface
temperature with the thermistor, converts it into voltage level, and
outputs it to the CPU analog input pin.
The CPU converts the analog voltage into digital signal level, compares it with the value set by simulations, turns on/off the heater lamp
according to the level, and maintain the heat roller surface temperature at a constant level.

When the heat roller surface temperature is low, the thermistor resistance increases. When the surface temperature is high, the resistance decreases. The thermistor terminal voltage, therefore, increases when the heat roller surface temperature is low, and
decreases when the temperature is high. The thermistor terminal
voltage is inputted to the CPU analog port, and the CPU controls
on/off of the heater lamp with the input voltage level.
[When the heat roller surface temperature is lower than
the set temperature]
[High temperature protecting circuit in hung up of the
CPU]
c. When the internal traic turns on, a pulse is applied to the gate of
the external triac to allow a current to flow from the power source
through the heater lamp to the triac, thus lighting the heater lamp.
a. Since the thermistor pin voltage is higher than the set level, output
signal HL from the CPU becomes HIGH.
b. HL signal is passed through IC102, TR, and Q110 to the solid
state relay.
When, therefore, HL signal is LOW, the internal triac turns on.
The voltage at IC133 3 pin (reference voltage) is divided by R149 and
R150, and the thermistor terminal voltage is applied to IC112 9 pin.
When 9 pin voltage is lower than 8 pin voltage (the heat roller surface
temperature: about 230 degree C), IC112 14 pin becomes LOW. As a
result, HL signal is pulled to the GND level and the heater lamp
lighting signal is not generated. (IC112 output 14 pin is normally
HIGH (Open state).)
[When the heat roller surface temperature is higher than
the set temperature]
a. Since the thermistor pin voltage is lower than the set level, output
signal HL from the CPU becomes low.
b. HL becomes low, SSR is turned off, the external triac is turned off,
and the heater lamp is turned off.
[Q110]
Q110 protects the heater lamp from lighting due to trouble in the
harness of the heater lamp drive signal.

(6) Stepping motor drive circuit
1 General
1 General
The control signals of each load outputted from the CPU and I/O
cannot drive the load directly. The output, therefore, is delivered to
the load through the driver IC.
The driver circuit drives the lens drive motor.
A: Stepping motor phase A coil drive signal
B: Stepping motor phase B coil drive signal
A: Stepping motor phase A coil drive signal
B: Stepping motor phase B coil drive signal
2 Operation
The driver circuit forms a Darlington circuit with two transistors to
obtain a large drive current (load current) from a small input current
(I/O output current). When the driver input voltage is HIGH (+5V), the
transistor is turned on to flow a current in the arrow direction, operating the load. When the driver is turned on, the driver output pin
voltage is 0V.

Operation amplifier A performs I-V conversion of the original density
level (minute current) from the sensor. Operation amplifier B amplifies
the output of operation amplifier A to a suitable level for inputting to
the CPU.
The amplifying level is automatically set by selecting the AE gain
signal (AEG0 ~ AEG2) outputted from the CPU when simulations SIM
47 is executed.
AE operation is performed by the software in the control PWB. When
a reflected ray enters the sensor, a voltage corresponding to the light
quantity is inputted to the CPU. The CPU compares the input voltage
and the copy lamp application voltage and controls the copy lamp
voltage so that the exposure level corresponds to the original density.

•
When the pulse ON period is shorter, the CLV becomes higher,
and vice versa.
•
The pulse ON period rises at he AC zero cross timing and is driven
by the duty.
•
The copy lamp lighting signal generates positive pulses with C133
at falling of the CPU output, and inputs the pulses through the
two-stage transistor to the photo triac.
•
Section A in the figure shows the circuit which prevents against
application of an overvoltage to the copy lamp.
When the pulse on period is abnormally short, the DC level applied
to the IC112 10 pin becomes higher than the reference voltage of
11 pin, driving the 13 pin output to the GND level.
Therefore the lighting signal is not transmitted to R174 and later
section and the lamp is not lighted.
By setting the reference voltage to a level not exceeding the rated
voltage, an abnormal lighting is avoided.

The copy lamp is switched by the triac. At the rising of CLPWM signal
(V4), the trigger signal CL is sent to the triac to light the lamp. The
lamp will goes off later at the zero cross point of V1 waveform.
The CPU reads the control voltage level (CLV) corresponding to the
change in the copy lamp voltage, and compares it with the reference
level to change the ON period of the output pulse.
The CLV forms the same waveform as the copy lamp voltage
waveform where the Ac input’s full rectified waveform (FW) is disabled for ON periods of the pulse. It is converted into a DC level by
the low pass filter composed of C107 and R168, and is inputted to the
CPU.
control voltage at constant):
The FW peak at point V1 becomes lower to decrease the CLU
voltage at V3 .
Then the CPU shortens the output pulse ON period until the CLV
reaches the reference level, increasing the power applied to the
coy lamp.
2 When the Ac input voltage becomes higher (with the copy lamp
control voltage at constant):
The reversed operations of 1 are performed to lengthen the
output pulse ON period, decreasing the current flowing through
the copy lamp.
3 When the copy lamp control voltage is decreased:
The CLV reference level in the CPU is lowered. The output pulse
ON period is lengthen until the CLV reaches the level, decreasing
the power supplied to the copy lamp.
4 When the copy lamp control voltage is increased:
The reversed operations of 3 are performed, to shorten the output pulse ON period, increasing the power applied to the copy
lamp.

4. Operating section
(1) Outline
The operating circuit is composed of the key matrix circuit and the
display matrix circuit.
Key detection: Keys are detected with signal matrix of W0 (Q25) ∼
W7 (Q32) and KEY0 ∼ KEY2.
With W0 signal at LOW (GND) and W1 ∼ W7 at HIGH (open), the
level of KEY0 ∼ KEY2 is checked and "H" or "L" state of 4K, 2K and
3K in the key matrix is judged to judge ON/OFF.
For W1 ∼ W7, switching is made every 2 msec for judgement.

The LED is lit up by the signal matrix of MDL0 (Q1) ∼ MDL1 (Q2) and
F0 (Q3) ∼ F20 (Q23).
By turning on/off ports F0 ∼ F20 with the timing of MDL0 and MDL1,
the LED at the matrix cross point is lighted up.
