CHAPTER 2
BASIC OPERATION
In outline diagrams,
represents mechanical drive paths, and
indicates
electrical signal paths.
Signals in digital circuits are identified as ‘1’ for High and ‘0’ for Low. The voltage of
signals, however, depends on the circuit.
Nearly all operations of the product are controlled by a microprocessor; the
internal workings of the processor are not relevant to the serviceman’s work and,
therefore, are left out of the discussions. By the same token, no repairs are
prescribed for the PCBs at the user’s premises; for this reason, PCBs are discussed
by means of block diagrams rather than circuit diagrams.
For the purpose of explanation, discussions are divided into the following: from
sensors to DC controller PCB input ports; from DC controller output ports to loads;
and minor control circuits and functions.

CHAPTER 2 BASIC OPERATION
B.
Outline of Electric Circuitry
The NP-6317's main mechanisms are controlled by the microprocessor, PROM, and
EEPROM on the DC controller PCB.
1. Microprocessor (Q300)
• controls the copying sequence
• controls the control panel
• controls the main motor/scanner motor/mirror motor
• controls the scanning lamp/fuser lamp
• reads the analog signals
2. PROM (Q301)
• contains the sequence program
3. EEPROM (Q317)
• stores data that can be modified in the service mode (replaces conventional variable resistors
and switches)
Note:
EEPROM is a type of ROM in which data may be erased or stored newly.
For this reason, the NP-6317's RAM and RAM are not backed up by a lithium battery.
Note:
The NP-6317 is equipped with an A/D converter and, therefore, its microprocessor can read
analog signals.
Note:
The main motor (M1) is a brushless motor.
The scanner motor (M2) and mirror motor (M3) are stepping motors which use the oscillation
frequency of the crystal oscillator on the DC controller.

BASIC OPERATION
A.
Changing the Reproduction Ratio
The reproduction ratio across the drum is varied by changing the position of the lens and the
position of No. 4 and No. 5 mirrors. It is moved by the lens drive system. The reproduction ratio
around the drum is varied by changing the speed of the scanner. Figure 3-101 shows how the
position of the lens and mirror is varied to change the reproduction ratio across the drum.
Lens
No. 4/5 mirror
100%

Figure 3-101
The scanner drive system changes the reproduction ratio around the drum by varying the speed
at which mirror 1 moves relative to the peripheral speed of the drum. (The scanner consists of
mirror 1 and the scanning lamp.)
The mirror speed is higher than the drum peripheral speed for REDUCTION and lower for
ENLARGEMENT.
Note:
For DIRECT copying, the speed of the mirror is the same as the peripheral speed of the
drum.

CHAPTER 3 EXPOSURE SYSTEM
II. LENS DRIVE SYSTEM
A.
Outline
The lens is moved by the scanner motor (M2). Normally, the coupling gear is in its upper
position, and connects the scanner motor to the scanner drive capstan. To move the lens, the lens
solenoid (SL2) goes ON, causing the coupling gear to disengage from the scanner capstan gear and
engage with the lens capstan gear. The lens is a "floating element" type. In operation, the relative
position of lens elements (individual lenses) changes, and the focal length changes as a result, but
the changes are intended to optimize lens sharpness for each reproduction ratio, not to make the
lens function as a zoom lens. (The lens should not be dismantled.)
When the scanner motor rotates (CW), the lens will be moved to the left (for ENLARGEMENT) by the capstan and cable.
When the paper size is changed or when the copier is in the REDUCE mode, the blank exposure shutter moves in relation to the distance over which the lens travels, thereby blanking out the
width corresponding to the reproduction ratio.
The DC controller indicates 'E210' on the control panel in response to an error in the lens drive
system.

CHAPTER 3 EXPOSURE SYSTEM
III. SCANNER DRIVE SYSTEM
A.
Outline
The scanner is driven by the scanner motor (M2). The direction of rotation of the scanner motor
determines whether the scanner moves forward or backward. The forward speed of the scanner
motor is continuously variable to produce the required reproduction ratio. The reverse speed is
fixed regardless of the reproduction ratio (2.5 times the forward speed for DIRECT copying).
The distance that the scanner moves varies to suit the size of copy paper and the reproduction
ratio.
The control panel displays 'E202' in response to an error in the scanner motor (M2) or the
scanner home position sensor (Q5).

Timing of operations, i.e., I, II, and III shown in Figure 3-304, is with reference to the leading
edge of the first page of the document (fall of Q3 signal).
I: The distance traveled by the scanner from the leading edge of the original is determined by the
reproduction ratio and the copy paper size, just as for a normal copy.
II: This is roughly the same as I. If the forward distance traveled by the scanner is greater than 210
mm (220V, or 240V copier) the DC controller will judge that 210 mm is the leading edge of the
original. If the distance that the scanner moves forward is less than 210 mm, the point at which
the scanner reverses in I will be the leading edge of the second page of the document.
III: Same as I.

CHAPTER 3 EXPOSURE SYSTEM
IV. No. 4/5 MIRROR DRIVE SYSTEM
1.
Outline
The copier changes the reproduction ratio by varying the position of the No. 4/5 mirror and
moving the lens. Figure 3-401 shows the positions of the mirror and the lens according to different
reproduction ratios.
The mirror is driven by the mirror motor (M3), and its position is monitored by the mirror
home position sensor (Q4). The mirror is positioned with reference to the number of motor pulses
counted from the mirror home position.
When the power is turned on, the mirror motor (M3) continues to rotate clockwise until the
mirror home position sensor (Q4) turns on. Thereafter, it rotates counterclockwise for a specific
number of pulses to stop the No. 4/5 mirror at Direct position.
When a non-Direct ratio is selected during standby, both mirror and lens are driven accordingly.

Driving the Scanner Motor (M2) and the Mirror Motor (M3)
Figure 3-402 is a block diagram showing the drive circuit used for the scanner motor (M2) and
the mirror motor (M3). These motors are 4-phase stepping motors.
The pulse signals used to drive the motors (MIRRA, MIRRA*, MIRRB, MIRRB*) are generated by Q300 of the DC controller PCB; on the other hand, the motor select signal (MIRRCOM,
SCNCOM) is generated by Q300 and Q303.
The motor selected by the motor select signal is controlled for direction and speed by the pulse
signals from Q300.

Adjusting the Mirror Position (optical distance between No. 1 and
No. 2 mirrors)
Adjust the position of the mirror after attaching the scanner cable.
To adjust, relocate the fixing used for the
No. 1 mirror mount; loosen the two screws.
Note:
i. The cable tends to become slack as
more and more copies are made, requiring adjustment.
ii. If the horizontal reproduction ratio
becomes faulty because of inaccurate
optical distance between the No. 1
and No. 2 mirrors, the images on copies will become out of focus.
1) Draw a line 1 cm from both ends of copy
paper (A4 or A3) as shown in Figure 3505.
2) Make a copy of the sheet on which lines
have been drawn; call the copy obtained
this way "sheet A."
3) Place a blank sheet of paper on the
copyboard, and feed the sheet on which
lines were drawn in the manual mode; call
the delivered-sheet "sheet B."
• Sheet B will show contraction by heat.
4) Put the left lines on sheet A and sheet B
together, and adjust the position of the No.
1 mirror mount so that x and y in Figure 3406 are identical.

Mechanism
1.
Turning the Scanning Lamp ON and OFF
The microprocessor (Q300) on the DC controller PCB controls the lamp regulator. The scanning lamp goes ON when the scanning LAMP ON command (LOAN) is '1', and it goes OFF when
the signal is '0'.
2.
Controlling the Intensity of the Scanning Lamp
The intensity of the scanning lamp is controlled by the lamp shift signal.
The intensity of the scanning lamp is changed.
When the reproduction ratio is different than 100% changing the T-on time of the lamp shift
signal. The T-on time of the lamp shift signals is fixed to 5ms at 100%. During AE exposure,
however, the voltage (135 V) applied to the scanning lamp remains the same.
The adjusts the copy density using its development bias; see p. 10-18.
3.
Error Protection
The condition of the scanning lamp is monitored using the lamp check signal.
If the lamp check signal is received by the DC controller even when the lamp is off, the error
detection circuit generates the AC SHUTOFF signal to force the relay (K100) on the AC driver/DC
power supply PCB to go OFF, thereby cutting AC power supply (p. 3-39). In this case, E220 error
is displayed.
4.
Zero-Cross Signal
The board generates the zero cross signal that the DC controller uses to control the fixing
heater temperature. E261 is indicated on the control panel if an zero cross error is identified.

III. PRIMARY/TRANSFER CORONA CURRENT AND
GRID BIAS VOLTAGE CONTROL SYSTEM
A.
Outline
The circuit shown in Figure 4-102 controls the primary/transfer coronal current and the bias
voltage of the grid of the primary corona. Main functions are as follows:
1. Switching primary/transfer corona current ON/OFF
2. Maintaining primary/transfer corona current constant
3. Switching primary corona grid bias voltage
4. Switching primary corona grid bias ON/OFF
In order to eliminate the effect of changes in atmospheric conditions on the effectiveness of the
corona discharge, the current to the primary corona wire is maintained constant.
The primary corona and transfer corona currents are switched ON and OFF by the HVT ON
command (HVTON).
The grid bias voltage is switched by the GRID ON signal (GRDON).
B.

CHAPTER 4 IMAGE FORMATION SYSTEM
C.
Maintaining Primary/Transfer Corona Current Constant
If the primary corona current is greater than the correct value due to changes in the environment, the level (analog) of the feedback signal to the differential amplifier circuit will increase and
the output from the differential amplifier circuit will fall. As a result, the primary/transfer corona
current will fall. Similarly, if the primary corona current is too low, it will be increased.
If the output side of the high-voltage transformer supplying the primary corona assembly
should be overloaded, the current will be limited to a certain maximum.

a. During scanning, the DC controller PCB output GRDON is '0' and CUR-LEV is '0'.
Q9 goes ON and the comparator output is '0'.
Q8 goes OFF.
Current does not flow into transformer T4, and Q10 goes ON.
Bias is applied to the grid.
The surface of the drum is charged.
The voltage applied to the grid is fixed by the shield current.
b. When scanning is not taking place, the DC controller PCB output GRDON is '1', and CURLEV is '1'.
Q9 goes OFF and the comparator circuit output is '1'.
Q8 goes ON, and current flows into T4.
Bias is not applied to the grid.
Under the above conditions, the surface of the drum is not charged; hence, toner does not
adhere to it (blanking).
The timing at which the grid bias is switched may be varied using "C3" or "C6" in the service
mode (leading edge non-image width adjustment).

IV. CONTROLLING DEVELOPING BIAS
A.
Outline
The circuit shown in Figure 4-402 controls the developing bias. Its main functions are as follows:
1. Switching the AC component of the developing bias ON/OFF.
2. Regulating the voltage of the DC component of the developing bias.
The copy density can be controlled by varying the voltage of the developing bias to suit the
following variables:
1. Setting of the COPY DENSITY lever and recalibration dial
2. AE sensor output
The photosensitive drum gradually deteriorates with use, causing the potential (VL) of light
areas of the drum to increase, causing the copy density to be incorrect for a given setting of the copy
density lever. To compensate for this, a COPY DENSITY knob, which can be turned to raise the
DC bias by exactly the increase in VL, and thus produce clear copies again.

Operation
Switching the AC Component of the Developing Bias ON/OFF
The square wave generator operates continuously when the copier is switched ON.
a) When ACBON=1
AC bias switch circuit goes ON.
Output from the square wave generator is cut off.
As a result, AC bias is not supplied to the developing cylinder.
b) When ACBON=0
The AC bias switch circuit goes OFF.
As a result, the output of the square wave oscillator goes to the T1 drive circuit. This causes the
AC high-voltage transformer to generate a 1300V AC bias, which is supplied to the developing
cylinder.
Also, the output of the AC high-voltage transformer is rectified and supplied to the static
charge eliminator (approx. 3.2 kV).

V. DOCUMENT DENSITY MEASUREMENT SYSTEM
A.
Outline
There is an automatic density adjustment (AE) system which adjusts the DC component of the
developing bias to suit the density of the original. If the density of the original is more or less
uniform, the AE function varies the DC component of the developing bias to suit the density of the
original, so that copies of the correct density will be made.
B.
Operation
The scanner moves forward approximately 70 mm past the leading edge of the original and
stops momentarily. The scanning lamp goes ON for approximately 1 sec, the image density is read
by the AE sensor, and the sensor output is interpreted by the DC controller. The DC controller then
adjusts the DC component of the developing bias accordingly.

Reading the Output of the AE Sensor
The AE sensor consists of a photodiode (Q702) and an operational amplifier (Q701). If the
strength of light striking the photodiode is high, the output voltage (AE) of the amplifier will be
small. If the amount of light is small, the output voltage will be large.
The DC controller reads the output at a certain time after the zero-cross signal (ZXDP) is
received from the DC power supply.
The data representing the adjusted AE reference/slope values are written to EEPROM when
'C0' or 'C1' is used in the service mode.

VI. DEVELOPING ASSEMBLY/DRUM CLAENER
A.
Outlines
The paddle inside the drum cleaning unit and also the developing cylinder are rotated by the
main motor.
The amount of toner in the developing assembly is sensed by the black toner level sensor
(TS1).
When the amount of toner falls below the required quantity, the ADD TONER indicator on the
control panel will flash.
The toner collected by the cleaning blade is stored in the drum cleaning unit.
The developing assembly is pressed against the drum by a cam that presses against the developing assembly rail. (The cam is operated by the developing assembly release lever.)
B.
Remaining Toner Sensor
The black developing assembly has a piezoelectric type sensor (TS1) which senses if the toner
remaining in the hopper of the developing assembly is above or below the required level.
When the amount of toner in the developimg assembly is sufficient, the sensor output is '1'.
When it is below the specified level, the output is '0'.
The DC controller PCB checks for 40 sec during copying if the TONER EMPTY signal (TEP)
is being outputted. If the signal is outputted continuously for 40 sec, it is regarded as "TONER
OUT" and the DC controller PCB makes the ADD TONER indicator flash.

VII.BLANKING
A.
Outline
The area of the drum between the tailing edge of one copy and the leading edge of the next
would normally act as an all-black area and attract toner if a preventive measure were not taken.
This measure is to switch the primary corona OFF and the primary corona assembly grid bias ON.
When the copy (cassette) size is a non-default size or when the copier is in the REDUCE mode,
the light from the pre-exposure lamp is directed to the photosensitive drum by way of the reflecting
plate to prevent adhesion of toner; the blank exposure shutter is moved to open the exposure slit
making use of the movement of the lens.

Movement of the Blank Exposure Mechanism
1. When the copier is switched ON, the lens first moves in the direction of enlargement and then
returns to the home position. Next, the lens moves in the direction of reduction for blank exposure up to a point that corresponds to the cassette size. At the time, the blank solenoid goes ON,
and the blank exposure shutter moves in the direction of the arrow by the force of a spring.

CHAPTER 5 PICK-UP/FEEDING SYSTEM
I. PAPER PICK-UP ASSEMBLY AND FEEDER
A.
Outline
When the pick-up clutch solenoid (SL1) engages, main motor (M1) turns the roller, feeding a
sheet of copy paper to the registration rollers. The number of rotations of the pick-up roller varies
with the length of the copy paper.
The copy paper is fed by the registration rollers so that its leading edge is in line with the
leading edge of the toner image on the photosensitive drum. It then passes through the transfer,
separation, feed, fixing and delivery stages to the copy tray.
The copy paper is sensed by paper sensor (Q2 and Q5). If it does not reach or pass the sensors
within the specified period, the DC controller PCB judges that a jam has occurred and causes the
JAM indicator on the control panel to flash.
The cassette paper sensor (Q11) senses whether there is paper in the cassette. If there is not, the
CASSETTE PAPER EMPTY signal (CPEP) goes '0', causing the ADD PAPER indicator on the
control panel to go ON.

Identifying the Paper Size
The presence/absence of a cassette in the cassette holder and the size thereof are identified by
four switches (CST1 through CST4) provided in the cassette holder. Based on the combinations of
the switches which have been actuated, the microprocessor recognizes the presence/absence of a
cassette as shown in Tables 5-101 and 5-102 and, at the same time, determines where to reverse the
scanner and how to control the blank shutter.

CHAPTER 5 PICK-UP/FEEDING SYSTEM
D.
Pick-Up from the Multifeeder
The multifeeder pick-up roller and holding plate are driven by the main motor (M1). The presence/absence of paper is monitored by the multifeeder paper sensor (Q1).
When the Copy Start key is pressed, the multifeeder solenoid (SL3) turns on temporarily,
causing the claw 1 to disengage from the control ring. When the multifeeder pick-up roller rotates,
the holding plate starts to move up; the pick-up roller continues to rotate even after the multifeeder
solenoid turns off.
A specific time (Note 1) after the leading edge of paper has reached the pre-registration sensor,
the multifeeder solenoid turns on once again, causing the claw 2 to engage with the control ring
gear and, ultimately, stopping the control ring.
The multifeeder solenoid turns off once again as soon as the registration roller starts to rotate.
This causes the claw 2 to disengage from the control ring gear. When the multifeeder pick-up roller
rotates, the holding plate starts to move down. When the control ring makes a full turn, the claw 1
engages with the control ring to stop the ring.
Note 1:
May be varied using 'C4' of service mode.

CHAPTER 5 PICK-UP/FEEDING SYSTEM
II. JAM DETECTION
The copier has two sensors to sense whether copy paper is being fed normally.
• Pre-registration paper sensor (Q2)
• Delivery paper sensor (Q8)
A paper jam is identified by the microprocessor by reading signals from the sensors at predetermined times. In relation to the presence/absence of paper at a sensor at that time, it identifies if
paper is moving through the copier correctly.
If a jam occurs, the copier memorizes the number of copies that are still to be made and also
the copier settings. This information is stored in the copier, even if the power is cut off by opening
the front door as when resetting the copier.
The microprocessor identifies a jam in any of the following four cases. Also, the microprocessor judges that there is a jam if one of the sensors detects paper when the power is switched ON.

CHAPTER 6 FIXING SYSTEM
I. BASIC OPERATIONS
A.
Outline
The upper and lower rollers of the fixing assembly are driven by the main motor (M1).
The upper roller is heated by a single heater (H1: 900W). When the surface temperature of the
roller rises, the resistance of the thermistors (TH1/TH2) falls, so the voltage of the signal FIXING
ROLLER SURFACE TEMPERATURE signal (MAIN-TH/AUX-TH) also falls.
Whether the voltage of TH1 (analog) is above or below a certain level at a given time determines if the microprocessor of the DC controller causes the HEATER DRIVE command (HTRD)
to go '1' or '0'.
The copier is provided with the following three protection mechanisms:
• The microprocessor monitors the voltage of TH1 and TH2 and indicates 'E000' or 'E001' in
response to an error, i.e., ACOFF goes '0' to turn the relay (K100) OFF, thereby cutting the
AC power to the fixing heater.
• The fixing roller error detection circuit monitors the voltage of TH1 and TH2 and, when it
drops below 0.9V (equivalent of 215°C), turns HTRD OFF.
• The microprocessor monitors the signal of HTON. When the HTON signal is ON while the
HTRD signal is OFF, the microprocessor cuts the AC power.
• The thermal switch (F1) goes OFF when the temperature of its inside rises to 230°C to cut off
the power to the fixing heater.
Note:
The thermal switch (TS1) cannot be used after its contact has opened: the contact will not
return to its normal state at room temperature.

CHAPTER 7 EXTERNALS/AUXILIARY MECHANISMS
I. POWER SUPPLY
A.
AC Driver DC Power Supply
1.
Outline
The AC driver/DC power supply PCB is supplied with AC power when the door switch (DS1)
and the power switch (SW1) go ON.
On the other hand, the DC power supply supplies the main body with 24 VDC and 5 VDC.
24 VDC is used to drive the scanner motor (M2), main motor (M1), mirror motor (M3) fans
and solenoids as well as high-voltage transformer (HVT); 5 VDC is used by the sensors and ICs on
the DC controller PCB.
2.
DC Power Supply Circuit
The 24 VDC output voltage is generated by a S.M.P.S*. The 5V is derived by a step-down
circuit from the 24V DC output.
The S.M.P.S. and the step-down circuit are provided with an overcurrent and overvoltage protection mechanisms and are used to maintain the output voltage stable against line load variations.
3.
AC Drive Circuit
The DC power supply/AC drive PCB has an AC driver circuit and, based on the signals from
the DC controller PCB, controls the SSRs and relays on the DC power supply/AC drive PCB to
drive AC loads.
If the DC controller PCB detects an error, the ACOFF signal is generated to turn the relay
(SK101) on the DC power supply/AC drive PCB OFF, thereby shutting off the power to the LDN
and the fixing heater.
When the power is shut off, switch the copier OFF, and identify the cause; then, switch the
copier OFF.
Note that repeated short-circuiting and resetting can cause the built-in fuse to blow.
* S.M.P.S.; Switching mode power supply.

II. UNPACKING AND INSTALLING THE COPIER
When a piece of metal is moved from a cold place to a warm place, droplets of water form on
its surface. This phenomenon is known as "condensation" and affects the performance of machines.
The simplest way to eliminate condensation in the copier, any machines for that matter, is to leave
it alone until it warms to room temperature (at least one hour).

density of gray
scale No. 10 correct?
(See Note 3.)
NO
Is there a
difference in density
in the image area of a
reduced copy?
YES
Check the following :
1. Differences in density
between the near and
far sides of the copies.
2. Density of gray scale
No. 10.
3. Fogging in blank areas.

scanning lamp, reflector
plate, and mirror; clean
them if necessary.
Is the
density of gray
scale No. 10 too dark?
(See Note 3.)
NO

Make the following copies
(using test sheet NA-2 or
NB-3):
Copy density 5: 2 copies
Copy density 1: 1 copy
YES
Note 1 :
The distance between the grid and
photosensitive drum is determined by
the spacer mounted on the grid.
Check for deterioration or damage to
the spacer.
Note 3 :
No. 10 on the gray scale of a copy
should reproduce the density of No. 8
on the gray scale of the test sheet,
and no fogging in the background
should be visible.
Note 2 :
This changes the developing bias, but
not the intensity of the scanning
lamp.
Note 4 :
Turning the copy density knob clockwise too far past the proper position
will result in fogging in blank areas.

CHAPTER 10 TROUBLESHOOTING
III. IMAGE TROUBLESHOOTING
A.
Initial Check
1. Checking the Installation Environment
a. The line voltage should be within 10% of the voltage on the rating plate.
b. The copier should not be installed in a hot or humid location (such as near a water faucet or
humidifier), a cold area, near an open flame, or in a dusty location.
c. Do not install the copier in a location where ammonia gas is generated. (diazo copiers, etc.)
d. Do not install the copier in direct sunlight. If such a location is unavoidable, install curtains or
other means to block out sunlight.
e. Install the copier in a well-ventilated location.
f. Install the copier where it can be set level.
2.
Checking the Original
Determine if the trouble is due to the original or a malfunction of the copier.
a. The copy density lever should normally be set to 4.5 ±1.5.
b. Check if the original has a background color, such as yellow, which causes poor contrast.
c. Check the density of the original.
Examples:
Originals which are diazo copies or transparent originals: Copies are likely to be mistakenly judged as being foggy.
Pencil originals: Copies are likely to be mistakenly judged as having a light image.
3.
Checking the Copyboard Cover or the Copyboard Glass
If the cover or glass is dirty, clean it with a mild detergent or with alcohol. If there is damage,
replace the damaged part.
4. Checking Corona Assemblies
a. Check for dirt on the corona assemblies or abnormalities (such as scratches) on the corona
wires.
b. Clean the corona wires and wire shield plates of each corona assembly. (Replace the wires if
the dirt cannot be removed.)
c. Ensure that each corona assembly is installed correctly.
d. Make sure that the corona wire tension springs are not rusted.
5.
Checking the Transfer Feed Guides
If the transfer guides or feed guides are dirty, clean them with a moist cloth.

CHAPTER 10 TROUBLESHOOTING
8. Check the Copy Paper
a. Is copy paper recommended by Canon being used?
b. Has the copy paper absorbed moisture?
Open a now package of copy paper and make copies, then compare the copies.
9.
Others
When a copier is brought in to a warm room from a warehouse or other cold area in winter,
particularly when it is being installed, condensation may form inside the copier and cause various
problems.
Examples of problems:
a. The copy image may become light due to condensation in the scanner (lens, mirrors, etc.)
b. The drum may be cold (the electrical resistivity of the OPC will be high), causing the contrast
to be low.
c. Current leakage from the coronas may occur.
d. Paper may jam or fail to be fed satisfactorily due to condensation on the pick-up and delivery
guide plate.
e. The friction of the lower manual feed paper pick-up roller may be reduced, resulting in unsatisfactory paper pick-up.
If condensation occurs in the copier, switch the copier ON and leave it to stand for 10 to 20
minutes.
If a cartridge in its original sealed wrapping is taken from a cold place to a warm place and then
immediately unwrapped, condensation may form on it, resulting in image problems. To prevent
this, instruct the customer to leave the cartridge sealed in the room for a sufficient period to allow
it to reach the temperature of the room (between one and two hours) before unwrapping it.
Note:
When detects such as uneven density (differences in the density on the near and far sides of
the copy), lightness or fogging occur first make the adjustments outlined in Basic Image
Adjustment Procedures.

The DC controller PCB has a microprocessor that diagnoses the functions of the copier (particularly the sensors) at appropriate intervals. If this microprocessor detects an abnormality, it will
display the type of the abnormality on the indicator on the control panel.
The table below shows the various fault codes, their meaning, and the corresponding detection
timing.
Example of E000 code indication:

CHAPTER 10 TROUBLESHOOTING
Note:
After self diagnosis has been executed, the copier may be reset by switching if OFF and then
ON unless 'E000', 'E001', 'E002', 'E003' or 'E004' is indicated on the display.
This consideration is made to prevent the user from resetting the copier when the fixing assembly has a serious fault (open thermistor or others) that can damage the assembly.
Reset the copier as follows if 'E000', 'E001', 'E002', 'E003' or 'E004' is indicated:
1) Detach the switch cover (one screw).
2) Shift the main switch (SW1) to ON and continuously hold the main switch down so that the
main power does not turn OFF.
3) Press the service switch (SW300) on the DC controller PCB once.
4) Shift the main switch to OFF.
5) Attach the switch cover.
