Ink-jet Technology
Overview
Thermal ink-jet technology involves applying heat to a tiny
measure of ink until it expands and forms a bubble. As the
bubble continues to expand and burst, it is propelled
through one of the nozzles on the ink cartridge. This process
is repeated up to 8,000 times per second.
The monochrome ink cartridge on the Color StyleWriter
6500 contains 300 black nozzles. The color cartridge
contains 64 nozzles of each color (cyan, magenta, and
yellow).

Special Servicing Considerations - 14
Special Servicing Considerations
Default Settings
After replacing the logic board you must use the Color SW
6500 Default Settings Utility to download customer default
settings to the replacement logic board. The Color SW 6500
Default Settings utility is on the Companion CD (path:
Diagnostic Utilities/Color SW 6500 Utilities).
If the settings are not reset, the carriage will not center
when the access door is lifted, making it impossible for the
customer to insert/remove print cartridges. Therefore, it
is important for the printer to be set from “manufacturing
mode” to “customer mode” after a logic board is replaced.
Refer to Additional Procedures for more information.
Basics
Special Servicing Considerations - 15
X-Y Calibration
After replacing the logic board or mechanical assembly on a
Color StyleWriter 6500, you must use the Color SW 6500
X-Y Calibration utility to set factory default carriage values
in printer memory. The Color SW 6500 X-Y Calibration
utility is on the Companion CD (path: Diagnostic Utilities/
Color SW 6500 Utilities).
Refer to Additional Procedures for more information.
Capping Unit
If a Color StyleWriter 6500 printer is brought in for
service, and the customer has had the printer for awhile,
replace the purge unit (922-2912) which contains the
capping assembly.
Basics
Special Servicing Considerations - 16
Mechanical Assembly Screws
Important: Do not touch/remove the screws on the Color
StyleWriter 6500 mechanical assembly for any reason.
Doing so will put the printer out of alignment and will
require installing a new mechanical assembly.

Interpreting the Diagnostic Test (Continued)
Print Cartridge
• Nozzle Patterns: The black and colored nozzle test patterns verify that dots on each print
cartridge are firing correctly. If dots are missing, refer to the “Print Quality” section in
Troubleshooting.
• Banding Test: If the nozzle test passes, the dark patches of the banding test should be
relatively smooth and uniform. Horizontal bands of lighter and darker areas indicate line feed
errors from drag, worn mechanical parts, or cartridge errors.
• Left/Right Registration Test: The left/right registration test measures the printer’s ability to
print a smooth vertical line. Half of the line is printed while the carriage moves to the left, the
other half, while the carriage moves to the right. The line should be straight without gaps;
otherwise, the encoder strip, carriage motor, drive belt, paper motor, or main logic board could
be damaged.
• Print Skew Test: The print skew test measures the print margins to ensure the paper moves
through the printer properly and printing does not appear tiltled.

Extended Diagnostic Test
The extended diagnostic test show detailed information on the print cartridges and also prints
out the contents of the Non-Volatile Memory (NVM). The top section of the test will show if
any nozzles are out. Random nozzle outs are due to the print cartridge; cleaning will often
clear them (see Print Head Cleaning Procedure in this section). The NVM contains
information such as page count, pen count, xy settings, and last error trap. The test prints
this information in hexadecimal format.
To print the Extended Diagnostic Test page:
1
With the printer on, press and hold the Power button.

Print Cartridge
• Nozzle Patterns: Check the black and color nozzle patterns for any poor print quality. The top
section of the test will show if any nozzles, primitive (blocks), or addresses (ladders) are out.
Check the “stair-step” patterns for missing dots (gaps in the diagonal lines).
Check each primitive and address to determine whether or not any addresses or
primitives are missing. A missing primitive (seen as a box missing in the pattern) or
a missing address (seen as a missing column of horizontal lines) will cause 12 to 22
nozzles to drop out.
Missing nozzles can be caused by bad print cartridges, incorrectly installed print
cartridges, mis-aligned purge units, a bad mechanical assembly. First try cleaning the
cartridges. If that does not solve the problem, try replacing the flexible ribbon cable,
or the mechanical assembly.
Additional Procedures

Interpreting the Extended Diagnostic Test (continued)
Printer Information
• NVM: The Non-Volatile Memory (NVM) works in tandem with the purge unit and allows the
printer to keep track of numerous operations. This information is held in memory, even when
the printer is shut off. The NVM contains information such as page count, pen count, xy
settings, and last error trap. The Extended Diagnostic Test prints out this information in
hexadecimal format. To read the NVM grid on the Extended Diagnostic refer to “Interpreting
the NVM Grid” in this chapter

Final Test
The Final Test is used at the end of the manufacturing line to verify correct printer
operation and can, therefore, be useful in service situations. Similar to the extended
diagnostic test, it prints out detailed tests of the print cartridges, including showing if
entire addresses or primitives are out. In addition, it tests the xy alignment, bi-directional
printing, line feed, and skew.

Interpreting the Final Test Page
All interpretations refer to the Final Test page shown on the preceding page.
• X, Y Alignment Blocks: Check the X, Y Alignment Block patterns across the top right side of
the page. White space should be visible between the colored and black areas in all four
corners. If not, X, Y alignment could be set wrong, or parts could be missing from the carriage
assembly. Refer to the X-Y Calibration topic in this chapter for more information.
• Nozzle Patterns: Check the black and color nozzle patterns for any poor print quality. The top
section of the test will show if any nozzles, primitive (blocks), or addresses (ladders) are out.
Check the “stair-step” patterns for missing dots (gaps in the diagonal lines). Check each
primitive and address to determine whether or not any addresses or primitives are missing. A
missing primitive (seen as a box missing in the pattern) or a missing address (seen as a
missing column of horizontal lines) will cause 12 to 22 nozzles to drop out. Missing nozzles
can be caused by bad print cartridges, incorrectly installed print cartridges, mis-aligned purge
units, a bad mechanical assembly. First try cleaning the cartridges (see Print Head Cleaning
Procedure in this chapter for more information). If that does not solve the problem, try
replacing the flexible ribbon cable, or the mechanical assembly.
Additional Procedures
Printer Tests - 19
Interpreting the Final Test Page (continued)
• Bi-Directional Test Pattern: The seven sets of five vertical lines test bi-directional printing.
One of the middle five sets should have almost no horizontal offset between the sections of
the lines. Offset can be caused by the incorrect assembly, encoder strip (or bent encoder
spring), carriage motor, or drive belt.
• Line Feed Pattern: The long, thick vertical bar on the left of the page tests line feed.
Prominent horizontal white lines or dark spaces in this bar indicate line feed problems which
may be caused by the paper motor or mechanical assembly. This test is intended to find gross
line feed errors, which result in either small white breaks/lines or dark lines/bands in the print
pattern.

Print Head Cleaning Procedure
The main purpose of the cleaning routines is to clear any
clogged nozzles in the print cartridges, but it can also be
used to detect printer problems. Each successive cleaning
routine uses more ink, the priming routine being
particularly ink intensive. Each cleaning routine prints
out the same page at the end. If the cleaning routines show
no improvement after three attempts, try new print
cartridges.
Types of Cleaning Routines
While holding the power button down, choose one of the
following cleaning routines:
• Standard cleaning: Press the resume button 7 times
• Deep cleaning: Press the resume button 8 times
• Priming: Press the resume button 9 times
Additional Procedures

Cleaning Procedure
Caution: Do not get the
printer’s ink on your hands
or clothes. Although the ink
is water soluble, it contains
dyes that will stain.

• The second line is black from the black pen
• The next three lines are cyan, magenta, and yellow. These lines can be used to detect a
missing color (often yellow).
– Note: Print quality problems such as missing colors or dots are almost always due to faulty
print cartridges. If the cleaning routines do not solve the problem, try new print cartridges.
• Scaling Test: The scaling test demonstrates the printer’s ability to scale fonts. If all the “A’s” are
the same size, replace the main logic board.
• Bleed Test: All possible color combinations are printed edge-to-edge to test the paper for
bleeding.

Fiber Track Cleaning
Small fibers can attach themselves to ink residue on the
carriage unit or ink cartridge and drag through the wet
ink on the page, causing fine streaks of ink or print
smear. These streaks are called “fiber tracks.”
To clean ink and debris from around the ink cartridge
nozzle plate and the carriage unit, perform the following
steps.
1
Remove the ink cartridges. Refer to “Replacing Ink
Cartridges” later in this chapter.
Caution: Do not leave the ink cartridges uncapped for
more than 8 minutes, or the nozzles may clog.

Replacing Ink Cartridges
Caution: Each ink cartridge contains a print head that
sprays the ink onto the paper. Treat the print head gently
so you don’t damage its tiny nozzles.
Caution: The carrier holds the ink cartridges and moves
them back and forth when you are printing a document.
Don’t slide the carrier by hand or you will damage the
printer.

default settings to the replacement logic board. The Color
SW 6500 Default Settings utility is on the Companion CD
(path: Diagnostic Utilities/Color SW 6500 Utilities).
Important: If the settings are not reset, the carriage will
not center when the access door is lifted, making it
impossible for the customer to insert/remove print
cartridges. Therefore, it is important for the printer to
be set from “manufacturing mode” to “customer mode”
after a logic board is replaced.

Note: The text on the transparency should line up
below the byte numbers on the test page. The
transparency also has numbers running down the left
hand column, beginning with 00. The second row is
20, the third row is 40, and so on. Lining up these
