*1: General notes:
- Make sure that the flexible cables and wires in the harness are in the proper position and connected correctly.
[See 3-2. Special Notes on Repair Servicing, (1) Flexible cable and harness wiring, connection, for details.]
- Do not drop the ferrite core, which may cause damage.
- Protect electrical parts from damage due to static electricity.
- Before removing a unit, after removing the power cord, allow the printer to sit for approx. 1 minute (for capacitor discharging to protect the logic board
ass'y from damages).
- Do not touch the timing slit strip film and timing slit disk film. No grease or abrasion is allowed.
- Protect the units from soiled with ink.
- Protect the housing from scratches.
- Exercise caution with the red screws, as follows:
i. The red screws of the paper feed motor may be loosened only at replacement of the paper feed motor unit (DO NOT loosen them in other cases).
ii. DO NOT loosen the red screws on both sides of the main chassis, securing the carriage shaft positioning (they are not adjustable in servicing).

3-3. Adjustment / Settings
(1) Paper feed motor adjustment
Perform the following adjustments when the paper feed motor unit is replaced:
1) When attaching the motor, fasten the screws so that the belt is properly stretched (in the direction indicated by the blue arrow in the figure below).
2) After replacement, be sure to perform the service test print, and confirm that no strange noise or faulty print operation (due to dislocation of the belt or gear, or
out-of-phase motor, etc.) occurs.
Note: The red screws securing the paper feed motor may be loosened only at replacement of the paper feed motor unit. DO NOT loosen them in other cases.
(2) Gear phase adjustment
In attaching the lift transmission gear (QC1-4327), adjust the phase so that the protrusion of the lift transmission gear (QC1-4327) fits into the recess of the
carriage shaft cam R (QC1-4382), as shown in the figure below.

4. PRINTER TRANSPORTATION
This section describes the procedures for transporting the printer for returning after repair, etc.
1) In the service mode, press the Power button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the sheet feeder unit is raised.
2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage.
[See Caution 1 below.]
3) Turn off the printer to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the printer is turned off, the carriage is automatically locked in place.)
[See Caution 2 below.]
4) To further secure the carriage to prevent movement from the home position during transportation, make and use a fixing tool in the following procedures:
i. Fold an A4-sized paper 5 times, and wrap it twice with tape, as shown in Figure A below (to prevent the fixing tool from caught into the inside of the
printer).
ii. Insert the fixing tool between the carriage and the main case unit, and securely fix it with tape, as shown in Figures B and C below.
Note: The tape should be similar to the polyester tape used at shipment, which will not easily be torn or removed, or leave adhesive on the unit when
removed.
Leave a sufficient length of tape to fix the tool so that the tape end is easily seen even when the access cover is closed, so that the user will
remove the tool from the returned printer without fail.
Figure A:
Figure B:
Figure C:
Caution:
(1) If the print head is removed from the printer and left alone by itself, ink (especially the pigment black ink) is likely to dry. For this reason, keep the print
head installed in the printer even during transportation.
(2) Securely lock the carriage in the home position, to prevent the carriage from moving and applying stress to the carriage flexible cable, or causing ink
leakage, during transportation.
Memo:
If the print head must be removed from the printer and transported alone, perform the following:
(1) Install both the black and color ink tanks (to prevent the nozzles from drying).
(2) Attach the protective cap (used when the packing was opened) to the print head (to protect the print head face from damage due to shocks).

TECHNICAL REFERENCE
1. NEW TECHNOLOGIES
(1) Multi-paper handling
Paper feeding through the auto sheet feeder and the front cassette, automatic duplex printing, and CD-R / DVD-R direct printing is available as a standard feature.
- Auto sheet feeder: Supports credit card size and sticker sheets as well as conventional paper types and sizes.
- Front cassette: Except credit card size and sticker sheets, supports the same types and sizes of paper as the auto sheet feeder.
- Automatic duplex printing unit built-in: By using Photo Paper Plus Double Sided, a photo album can be created automatically.
- CD-R / DVD-R direct printing unit built-in: By incorporating CD-R / DVD-R tray feeder functionality into the printer, CD-R / DVD-R direct printing can
be performed without using a CD-R tray feeder.
Front loading and operation without any lever settings offers easy and quick printing.
(2) New design
- Complete renovation to a new generation printer design
- Elegant-looking housing with mirror finished surface
- Various features and functionality in a compact body comparative to the i850 in size.
(3) Automatic duplex printing unit installed as a standard feature
For the following paper types and sizes, automatic duplex printing can be performed:
- Type: Plain paper, Super White Paper (double-sided plain paper), Photo Paper Plus Double Sided (double-sided glossy photo paper)
- Size: A5, B5, 5" x 7", A4, LTR

2. CLEANING MODE AND AMOUNT OF INK PURGED
To prevent printing problems due to bubbles, dust, or ink clogging, print head cleaning is performed before the start of printing, except in the following cases:
- Cleaning on arrival: Performed when the access cover is closed.
- Cleaning by dot count: Performed after ejection of paper (or after printing on the back side of paper when auto duplex printing is performed).
- Manual cleaning / deep cleaning: Performed manually.

small sized paper (such as 4 x 6), when a
larger sized paper (such as A4) is printed.
- With Photo Paper Plus Double Sided or
postcards, the phenomenon is likely to be
noticeable and to be complained of by
users, as printing is performed on both
sides of such paper.
In borderless printing, printing is performed
to the size slightly larger than the paper size,
and ink off the paper is absorbed by the
platen's ink absorber. Absorbed ink may
attach to the platen rib(s) after several dozen
sheets are printed, causing soiling at the
