1.6.11 Printer Protection for Heavy-Duty Printing
This printer has a printhead protection function to prevent it from overheating and to handle the printer when the
head driver voltage drops. If head temperature exceeds its maximum value, printing stops automatically until the
head temperature drops to a certain value before printing resumes. Printing resumes at a lower print speed at first.
However, as the head temperature decreases, print speed increases to normal speed automatically. If the head
temperature continues to increase at the lower speed, printing is stopped or resumed as temperature increases or
decreases.
If the voltage supplied to the head drive circuit drops below its minimum limit as a result of heavy-duty printing,
printing is interrupted immediately. When the power supply voltage recovers to a certain level, the remaining print
line is printed at hatf speed. This protective action occurs when half or more of the wires are activated mntinuously.

2.1 OVERVIEW OF PRINTER MECHANISM OPERATION
This section describes the printer mechanism of the Model-5J10 printer unit and explains how the printer works.
Model-5J10 has a printer mechanism that features a 24-pin impa~ dot printhead for serial printing. There are four
main parts to the printer mechanism: 1) the printhead mechanism, 2) the carriage movement mechanism, 3) the
paper advance mechanism, and 4) the ribbon advance mechanism. Each of these is described below.
2.1.1 Printhead Mechanism
The printhead mechanism consists of the printhead itself, the ink ribbon, and the platen. The printhead mntains 24
wires in a zigzag arrangement in two rows of 12. A drive coil is provided for each of these wires to make the wires
move in and out of the printhead and print dots independently of each other. The basic way that the wires are driven
is described in the four steps below.
1.
2.
3.
4.
The control circuit outputs the drive signal to the printhead drive circuit. This changes the printhead drive
voltage, and current flows through the corresponding pnnthead coil. The coil acts as a solenoid and generates
a magnetic force.
This induced force causes the plate to approach the coil md and the associated dot wire is rapidly ejected to
impact on the platen.
The dot wire presses the ink ribbon up against the paper as it hits the platen, and in this way prints a dot on
the paper.
As soon as the current through the coil is switched off, the force induced in the mil rod stops. The plate then
returns to its original position-(its position before the coil was energized) through the action “of the p~te spring.
After the dot wire hits the platen, the rebounding force of hitting the platen works together with the wire return
spring to pull the wire back to its original position in relation to the plate.

Figure 2-1. How the Printhead Works
Figure 2-1 shows the action of the printer mechanism when a single dot is printed.
The printhead tends to heat up aftera period of mntinuous printing. To minimize the possibility of the dot wire drive
coils overheating within the printhead and any loss of performance, the head is equipped with a thermistor that
detects the head temperature. When this thermistor detects changes intheprinthead temperature, thevoltagesignal
changes. This signal change is read by the control circuit for feedback mntrol.

2.3 CONTROL CIRCUIT OPERATION
The control circuit consists of two boards: the C107 MAIN board, which acts as the main board, and
the C062 PNL board, which acts as the control panel board. This section describes how these boards
work.
2.3.1 Control Circuit Operation Ovewiew
The printer CPU is an 8-bit CPU TMP90C041 running at 10 MHz. It oversees control of all the
components of the printer. The E05A50 gate array contains various memory management ftinctions
that control the assignment of the memoty and l/O areas, and it controls a head gate array IC2
(E05A86), a PU1501 or STK-67129 for the PF and CR motor driver, STA475A(IC4 - IC9) is transistor
array for the head pins drive, several sensor circuits and so on.

Figure 2-19 shows the reset circuit block diagram. The reset circuit issues the /RESET signal. Each
part of the control cimuits is initialized when this /RESET signal is received. The renditions when the
/RESET signal is output are described below.
When Turning on the Power Supply
Immediately after the power has been turned on, PST 529 (IC19) outputs the /PON pulse. E05A50
(IC1l) receives this pulse and then outputs the /DISC pulse. The electrical charge in the
capacitor(C29) is then discharged. After this, The /THLD port within E05A50 detects the low level and
then outputs the /RESET signal from the /OUT port of IC19. After a certain time has elapsed, the
charge in the condenser builds up again. The M-ILD signal is canceled and then the /RESET signal
is canceled.
Resets performed by the CPU itself (CPU self-reset)
The CPU outputs the /RESET signal if there is a /RESET request for E05A50 and E05A50 output the
/DISC pulse. ”

2.3.4 MOTOR, CR Drive Circuit
Figure 2-22 shows the MOTOR, CR driie circuit. An open-loop, constant-current drive control is used
to drive the MOTOR, CR. The motor is driven by 2-2 phase excitation and 1-2 phase excitation. 2-2
phase excitation corresponds to two 1-2 phase excitation steps. Thus, for each single step phase
change of a 2-2 phase excitation motor, the carriage moves 1/120 inch. For each single step phase
change of a 1-2 phase excitation motor, the carriage moves 1/240 inch.
The MOTOR, CR driie circuit of the STK-67128 detects the amount of current flow in the MOTOR, CR
coil and regulates it. The current flowing through the coil varies depending on the speed of the
MOTOR, CR.
The amount of current is set by the CPU via the E05A50 l/O port. Signals are sent to Vrefl or Vref2
on the STK-67128. The STK-67128 sets the coil current to mnespond to the MOTOR, CR speed.
Ports P60 to P63 on the CPU are used exclusively as phase control potts for the stepping motor.

2.3.5 MOTOR, PF Drive Circuit
The printer uses a stepping motor to advance the paper. The paper can be advanced for minimum of
1/380 inch. The nmtor is a 2-2 phase or 1-2 phase, constant-voltage drive type. P70 to P73 on the
CPU are the phase oontml ports forthe stepping motor. MOTOR, PF phase data output through these
ports. Cl to C4 are turned on and off within the PU1501(IC3) acoording to the phase data sent from
the CPU.
When the paper advanoe motor is running, the supply voltage to the mil of the MOTOR,PF is +35 V.
When the paper advance motor is not running and is in hold state, the supply voltage to the coil is +5
V. Switching between these two supply voltages oocursat the CPterminal of the PU1501(IC3) when
the switch is turned on or off.

2.3.6 Printhead Drive Circuit
Figure 2-24 shows the printhead drive circuit block diagram. The print data already is expanded to
create the image data. The CPU splits up this data three times and transfers this information to the
latch circuit within the Head Gate Array(lC2). The CPU samples the voltage of the +35 V line via the
A/D convertor (see Section 2.3.3). The CPU outputs a pulse via the CPU time output pori P63. The
length of this pulse corresponds to the voftage of the +35 V line. This pulse becomes the head drive
signal. In this way, Head Gate Array(iC2) outputs head drive signals (signals HD1 to HD24) that relate
to voltage level through the width of the pulses. These signals are output to the head for each of the
section of print data that were created by subdividing the data three times before sending.
By sampling the +35 V line voltage and determining the length of the head drive signal, it is possible
to maintain the energy supplied to the head at a mnstant level. If the voltage of the +35 V line is .
HIGH, the CPU shortens the output pulse. If the voftage of the +35 V line is LOW, the CPU lengthen
the output pulse.

‘) 4.3 CIRCUIT ADJUSTMENT
The C107 MAIN board contains variable resistor VR1, which is used for balancing the circuitry. When any of the
following parts are replaced, the circuitry must be balanced by adjusting the VR1.
R6, R7, TL431(IC1), and VR1
If the circuitry is not properly adjusted, the CPU A/D converter functions abnormally and causes irregular operation
of the printer.
4.3.1 Adjustment Process
Attach a digital multimeter to the check terminal TP1 (Vref voltage) on the C107 MAIN board. Turn the printer On
and adjust the variable resistor VR1 until a reading of 4.741 V is obtained.
