† When the 999EPSON folder stores images, the camera is disabled from shooting

(the camera displays the “CF card full to its capacity” status) if the CF card runs
out of free space. Then the sequential number is reset to 100EPSON-EPSN0001.
At this point, EPSON folders without any image files are deleted.

† Also when EPSN9999.jpg is stored in the 999EPSON folder, the camera is

„ The default is 100EPSON.
disabled from shooting (the camera displays the “CF card full to its capacity”
status). Then, the sequential number is reset to 100EPSON-EPSN0001. At this
point, EPSON folders without any image files are deleted.
† File name
EPSN………….jpg
† Even after the camera is disabled from shooting, changing the resolution may
enable the camera to shoot again.
„ …………: Any of the numbers in the range of 0001-9999
„ The default is EPSN0001.jpg.
† Even after the camera is disabled from shooting, the camera is enabled to shoot
again if there is no EPSN9999.jpg file in the 999EPSON folder and a sufficient
free area is restored in the CF card by deleting image files.
1.3.18.2 Fundamental Functions
† The camera stores in its memory both the image folder numbers and the image file
numbers as serial numbers.
† Every time the camera takes a picture, the highest file number in the CF card is
assigned to the picture to ensure the sequence in which the pictures taken are
played back. The highest file number in the CF card is compared with the latest
serial number stored in memory. Then, the higher one is assigned to the picture
taken.
1.3.18.5 Others
† Once the “delete all” function is used in playback mode (locked images are not
deleted), all EPSON folders with no files are also deleted.
† Sequential numbering is kept even after the CF card is formatted.
† Sequential numbering reset function is not provided.
1.3.18.3 Defining the Highest File Number in CF Card
† If the folder of the highest number in the card is an EPSON folder, the highest file
number in that holder is defined as the highest file number in the memory card.
† If the folder of the highest number in the CF card is not an EPSON folder (ex.
“100CANON”), a new EPSON folder is created and given a number one higher
than the existing highest folder number. When a new picture is taken, an image file
with the number 0001.jpg is created as the highest file number in the CF card.

PhotoPC 2100Z
Revision A
2.1.3.2 Operating Principles of Power Supply Circuit
2.1.4 Operating Principles of Flash Circuit
The control IC (IC1) in the power supply circuit has a 2-channel control system. One
channel is used for voltage down by L81 to generate 3.3 V. The other channel is used
for voltage boosting and voltage down by the transformer T21 to generate four outputs,
namely, +3.3 V, +5 V, +18 V and -8 V.
The major functions of the flash circuit are to charge the flash capacitor at the flash
firing voltage and to fire the xenon flash lamp.
PC3.3V and PL3.3V are supplied from the 3.3 V of L81 by turning on and off the
switching circuit of Q91 and Q94.
Transformer T21 is a flyback circuit of +3.3 V.
The flash firing voltage is boosted to about 300 V by the oscillating transformer T3101
and charges the flash capacitor. The control signal ST_ON from the 8-bit CPU turns on
the transistor Q3105 to start flash charge. Flash charge is completed when Zener diode
D3106 sends the ST_OK signal to the 8-bit CPU.
The charge in the flash capacitor is applied to the trigger transformer T3102 by IGBT
Q3107 to fire the flash lamp. Flash firing is controlled by the DD_TRIG signal (5V
level).
+1.8V is generated from +3.3 V and stabilized by the regulator Q71.
+D3.3V is turned on and off by the switching circuit consisting of Q61 of +3.3 V.
+5V is stabilized by Q31.
+C18V is stabilized and turned on and off by Q41.
2.1.5 Fuses
+C16V is generated from +C18V and stabilized by Q161.
The power supply circuit has three fuses.
CM7V is generated from -8V and stabilized by Q51.
On the Main Circuit Board, a fuse is mounted for power to the motor.
BK_8V is generated by self-excitation transformer T1 and Q4.
The fuse for flash circuit is mounted on the Flash Circuit Board.
2.1.3.3 Power Supply Circuit on the Main Circuit Board
A power supply circuit (U1806) of 4.8 V is provided for motor drive.
To supply -32V for LCD brightness adjustment, the charge pump circuit U1603 is
provided.
2.1.3.4 Power Supply Circuit on Flash Circuit Board
The backlight is turned on by inverter (alternating current waveform) output of BK_6V
by t3103. The output connector is CN3104.

Disassembly and Assembly
Overview
injury from sharp metal edges.
The electrolytic capacitor (C3108) mounted on the circuit
board is to fire the flash and to be charged automatically
whenever the power is ON. Due to this, it may cause an electric
shock during the service procedure. Before starting repair, be
sure to discharge the camera, using the cement resistor. (For
details, refer to “Rear Cover Removal” on page 53.)
A lithium battery is installed on the main board of this camera.
Be sure to observe the following instructions when serving the
battery:
Keep the battery away from any metal or other batteries so that
electrodes of the opposite polarity do not come in contact with each
other.
Do not heat the battery or put it near fire.
Do not solder on any part of the battery. (Doing so may result in
leakage of electrolyte from the battery, burning or explosion. The
leakage may affect other devices close to the battery.)
Do not dismantle the battery. (The gas inside the battery may hurt
your throat. Leakage, burning or explosion may also be caused.)
Do not install the battery in the wrong direction. (This may cause
burning or explosion.)
Dispose of the used batteries according to government's law
and regulations.
To protect sensitive microprocessors and circuitry, use static
discharge equipment, such as anti-static wrist straps, when
accessing internal components.
To avoid dust explosion or ignition, never bring batteries close
to flame or throw them into fire.

name has an extension “c21”. If two or more program files with
an extension “c21” are stored in one CF card, proper selection
of the program to be executed by the camera will not be
ensured.
When storing a program in a CF card, pay attention to the
property of the file. If the property is “read only”, the camera
can not execute the program. And, check a mark on the archive
check box in the property, otherwise the camera can not
execute it too.
When all the adjustments to be made, perform “BC (Battery
Check) Compensation Values Writing” first. The other
adjustments can be performed in any sequence. These
adjustments include the initialization of the adjusted value
storage area in the camera.
Once “BC (Battery Check) Compensation Values Writing” is
performed, be sure to perform all the other adjustments
subsequently, without omitting any of them.
Once any error occurs during execution of an adjustment,
perform the same adjustment again under the same conditions.
(See "Explanation of Error Codes" on page 62)
If an error recurs, check for proper conditions under which the
adjustment is performed.
When performing any of the CCD adjustment, AF adjustment
and Strobo adjust, make sure that the lens cover is open.

How to use is the same as another extension “c21” files.
But, if you perform the above program once, you must
perform the adjustments again from BC adjustment to
