This machine employs the center reference system.
Since the digital copier is not provided with the tray size detection feature, formatting and center distribution are performed not by the actual
paper size but by the paper size specified by the computer.

D. System outline
The GDI-PWB is provided with IEEE1284 I/F on the host side, and the
16-bit bi-directional data bus I/F and UART on the machine side.
Transfer of image data with the IMC-PWB is performed with this 16-bit
bi-directional data bus. Command status information with the engine is
processed with UART.
This unit is installed to the position of PCL-PWB on the conventional
AR-235/275.
JBIG compression data sent from the host are transferred to the IMC
PWB, where the data are extracted to be VIDEO data, and sent
through the MCU PWB to the LSU.
M-bus
∗ Top margin
CCD
The set value is received from the digital copier, and data are made
according to the set value.
∗ Left margin
Since the paper size sensor is not set, the digital copier cannot recognize the size and direction of paper which is actually inserted.
Therefore, the left margin is set according to the paper size specified in
the print data sent from the computer, and print process is performed.
If the computer does not specify the paper size, or in the case of the
custom size, the left margin is set according to the default paper size.

in the half tone image of graphics, keep the relationship between +V1
and +V2 at the default and change it.
When the image quality is deteriorated because the user selects the
OHP mode and use other than the recommended OHP, decrease the
transfer current to adjust deterioration of black background picture
quality. If some of characters are not printed, increase the transfer current.

When the machine enters the self-diagnosis mode. If detected when the power is
turned ON or reset, checking is made again.
! ! ! MAINTENANCE REQUIRED ! ! ! When the maintenance counter or the developer counter reaches the specified
count. If detected when the power is turned ON or reset, checking is made again.
(3) Status Message
D. Handling of transmission data
Counter information
In E-mail Alerts and E-mail Status, a transmission task is generated
regardless of the job which is under process in the machine. These
tasks are processed in the following rules:
When schedule driven is set, the total counter, the copy counter, and
the printer counter are displayed in a mail address for general. These
information items are supplied from the controller MIB. The "total
counter" means the "effective paper counter" controlled by the MCU.
Timer information
For schedule drive message, the Printer controller controls transmission time by means, and transmits a mail.
Timer setup is made from the Web setup page.
• When the machine receives a mail transmission request during a job
process (copy scan, copy output, print output, other process) of the
machine, it performs transmission process regardless of the job.
• When the machine receives a mail transmission request under other
situation, if the job is triggered during transmission process, the job
is started.
• When the machine receives a mail transmission request during the
simulation mode, the request is accepted and transmission process
is started.
• When the machine receives a mail transmission request during the
key operator program, it is accepted and transmission process is
started.
• When the controller sends two or more requests during a job, only
the last request is accepted.

(1) NOTE FOR THE USE OF LEAD-FREE SOLDER THREAD
When repairing a lead-free solder PWB, use lead-free solder thread.
Never use conventional lead solder thread, which may cause a breakdown or an accident.
Since the melting point of lead-free solder thread is about 40°C higher
than that of conventional lead solder thread, the use of the exclusiveuse soldering iron is recommendable.
(2) NOTE FOR SOLDERING WORK
Since the melting point of lead-free solder is about 220°C, which is
about 40°C higher than that of conventional lead solder, and its soldering capacity is inferior to conventional one, it is apt to keep the soldering iron in contact with the PWB for longer time. This may cause land
separation or may exceed the heat-resistive temperature of components. Use enough care to separate the soldering iron from the PWB
when completion of soldering is confirmed.
Since lead-free solder includes a greater quantity of tin, the iron tip
may corrode easily. Turn ON/OFF the soldering iron power frequently.
If different-kind solder remains on the soldering iron tip, it is melted
together with lead-free solder. To avoid this, clean the soldering iron tip
after completion of soldering work.
If the soldering iron tip is discolored black during soldering work, clean
and file the tip with steel wool or a fine filer.
