1. Front-loading.
- Thecopier is designed to aCCept cassettes from the frOnt for ease of use (two cassettes holding 250 sheets
each).
- The copier is given two cassette holders, thereby eliminating the need forcassetle replacement in making
copies of different sizes.
- The copier’s multifeeder allows you to feed multiple postcards (NP21 20)
2. Full line of auto mechanisms.
- The copier has an auto paper selection mechanism as standard, which selects paper of the correct size
in response to placement of a document.
- With the auto reproduction ratio selection mechanism, the copier calculates the correct reproduction ratio
according to the specified copy size.
- The AE (auto exposure) mechanism ensures crisp reproduction of newspapers and blue-print documents.
- Thecopier’s auto-stafifeature lest you press the COPY START key during the wait period so thatthe copier
will start making copies as soon as it becomes ready (NP2120).
3. HQ jumping toner.
* The copier uses Canon? own HQ (high quality) jumping toner for reproduction of clear characters and
photos.
- The toner is of a single-component type, which provides stable images.
- In addition, a 30-dia. high sensitivity OPC drum is used to enable enhanced image reproduction and a
compact copier design.
4. Man-machine interface.
- As many as 21 copies (A4, landscape) may be made per minute.
. The zoom mechanism allows reduction down to 50% and enlargement up to 200% of the original image.
- The page separation mode serves to speed up copying book-form documents.
- The copier accepts documents as small as a postcard oras large as A3.
- With the CT unit (option), the copies may be in red, green, blue, or brown.
5. A variety of options to choose from for full automation.
The copiercommunicates with its options at a higher speed than ever, resulting in more output
* With options, up lo 21 copies/min; 1:l (A4, landscape).
- ADF-Al for automatic document feed.
- Sorter-Al for automatic sorting and grouping (20 bins).
- MS-Al for automatic sorting and grouping (IObins).
- Control Card V (configured as built-in) for copy volume control (up to 200 depts.).
- Stapler Sorter 1 O-BI for stapling copies sorted in its ten bins.

This block consists of the first three steps of the
image formation process; at its end, the areas of the
drum corresponding to dark areas of the document
areleftwith negativecharges, andthoserepresenting
light areas are rid of negative charges.
The pattern of charges so formed is not visible to
the human eyeand, therefore, iscalled an electrostatic
latent image.

Inthisstep,orpre-conditioningexposure,thesurface
of the drum is exposed to light from the preconditioning exposure lamp. All charges remaining
on the surface of the drum from the preceding copy
cycle are eliminated in preparation for exposure by
theprimarycorona. Suchcharges, if leftastheyare,
could result in copies with uneven density.

Primary corona exposure
Figure 2-8
Figure 2-6
In this step, the drum is exposed by the primaiy
corona. As a result, its surface will cometo have a
uniform layer of negative charges and maintain
primary potential.
The surface potential of the drum is determined
by the value of the grid bias’grounded by way of a
constant voltage element.
5. Step3
As shown in Figure 2-8, the developing assembly
consists of a developing cylinder and a magnetic
blade; the developing cylinder itself is made up of a
magnet fixed in position and acylinder which rotates
around the magnet.
The black developer is a single-component
developer of magnetite and resin. The developer
has insulating properties and is charged to a positive
potential by friction with the rotating cylinder.
The color developer is a fixed-ratio mixture of
carrier (iron powder) and toner (resin).
By friction with the rotating cylinder, the iron
powder is charged to a negative potential, and the
toner to a positive potential.

Aconcentrated magneticfield develops between
the magnet and the tip ofthe blade, and the developer
is attracted to the magnetic field.
The magnetic field holds the developer it has
attracted virtually immobile and creates a collection
of developer particles hanging from the tip of the
blade. Asthecylinderrotates, thedeveloperparticles
leavethe magneticfieldtodepositthemselvesonthe
cylinder in a thin, uniform layer.
Since both thedeveloping cylinder and blade are
given AC bias and DC bias (negative component) at
the same time, the resulting waveform of the
developing bias has a larger negative component
than positive.

8. Step 6 Separation
D C bias
Figure 2-10
During copy operation, the toner is attracted to
the drum by the work of the surface potential of the
drum as well as the developing bias (at time of
positive component), and it turns the electrostatic
latent image to a visible image. The excess toner is
repelled by the surface potential ofthe drum and the
developing bias (at time of negative component).
A DC bias affects copydensity; a larger bias, Le.,
approaching OV, increases the density but, at the
same time, tends to cause fogging.
7 Step 5 Transfer
\ Static eliminator
Figure 2-12
In this step, the paper is separated from the drum
making use of the rigidity of the copy paper. Thin
paper, with little rigidity, however, tends to remain in
contact with the drum; to prevent such a condition,
the static eliminator is charged to a positive potential
to facilitate separation by weakening the static
attraction between the drum and copy paper.

A. Blank Exposure Mechanism
The blank exposure mechanism is used to remove
the potential from the non-image sections of the
drum in the REDUCTION mode or lo suit paper
sizes; see p. 3-37.
The light from the pre-exposure lamp is reflected
by the reflecting plate and directed onto the
photosensitive drum.
The non-image section between two sheets of
copy paper is kept free of toner by lowering the grid
bias of the primary corona unit, instead of using the
blank exposure mechanism to remove the potential
of the drum.
B. Ozone Filter
The fan unit is equipped with an ozone filter, which
breaks down the ozone generated by the coronas
into oxygen by catalytic action.

OPERATIONS AND TIMING
Inoutlinediagrams,-- representsmechanícaldrivepaths,andmindicateselectricalsignal
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 copier are controlled by microprocessors; the interna1 workings of
these processors are not relevant to the serviceman’s work and, therefore, 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.
Forthe purpose of explanation, discussions are divided into the following: from sensors to DC

B. Electrical Circuitry
The copier is controlled by the two microprocessors
and communication LSI on the DC controller PCB,
each of which functions as follows:
1 Microprocessors 1
Q301 (master)
. Controls the copy sequence.
. Controls the document size identification.
Note:
The main motor (Mi) is a synchronous motor
thatusesthefrequencyofthepowersupplyas
referente. The scanner motor (M2) and lens
motor (M3), on the other hand, are stepping
motors that use the oscillation frequency of
the crystal oscillator built in the DC controller.
As such, luctuations in the power supply frequency during copy operation in turn fluctuate
the main motor (MI), causing the copies to
carry expanded or contracted images.
Q302 (slave)
. Controls the stepping motor.
. Outputs the image formation control signals.
Q304 (IPC)
. Controls the serial communication with ADF
and sorter.
Note:
With the built-in A/D converter, the copie&
microprocessors can read both digital and
analog signals.

B. Lens Drive System
1. Outline
The lens unit is driven by the lens drive motor
(M3).
The lens drive motor also serves to move the
blank exposure shutter and is switched by the blank
shutter solenoid (SL4); see p. 3-37. When the blank
shutter solenoid (SL4) goes ON, the drive is transmitted to the lens drive pulley to move the lens unit.
WhenthepowerisswitchedON, SL4goesON to
rotate the lens drive motor, thereby moving the lens
to the home position. When the lens reaches the
home position, the lens drive motor rotates in reverse; it then stops after the signa1 plate has left the
sensor (Qi) and a specific number of pulses has
been generated, positioning the lens at the DIRECT
position.
Likewise, the lens is first moved to the home position also for both enlargement and reduction operations; it is then moved and positioned at a point
suited to the specified reproduction ratio.

The scanner motor changes its direction of rotation
to move the scanner forward and in reverse. When
the scanner moves forward, the motor speed is
changed to suit the specified reproduction ratio;
when the scanner mover in reverse, however, its
speed is constant regardless of the reproduction
ratio (3.5 times as fast as when moving forward).
The distance over which the scanner moves
varies according to the length of the copy paper and

D. Document Sìze Identification
1. Outline
The copier is equipped with auto paper selection
and auto reproduction ratio selection mechanisms.
These mechanisms call for identification of the
document size as described below.
To enable such identification, three circuits are
attached under the copyboard glass (Figure 3-21);
when the copyboard cover is lowered, the DC controller checks the output of these circuits twice,
thereby identifying the document as Ledger, Legal,
Letter, or Mini.
The document identification circuit causes its
LED to emit light to illuminate the document; the reflected light is then checked by the phototransistor,
whose output is sent to the DC controller.
2. Mechanism
The DC controller checks the output of the document identification circuit when the copyboard cover
is lowered to about 20 deg. (SW4 ON) and about 1
sec second afterthe over has been lowered to about
5 deg. (SW5 ON).
The DC controller recognized the presente of a
document if the two measurements are identical:
conversely, it recognizes the absence of a document
if the measurements are different.

(The thickness of the arrows represents the degree of the level.)
Figure 3-19
When a document is present, the light reflected
by the document is checked by the document identification circuit; therefore, the output of the circuit is
constant regardless of the angle of the copyboard
cover.
When no document is present, the output of the
circuit from the first measurement is low or none at

reflected by the document sheet.
If the document is too thick and, therefore, if only

on the output level of this time.

C. Controlling the Scanning
Lamp
1. Outline
The scanning lamp iscontrolled bythe DC controller
PCB as follows; see Figure 3-24.
- Turns the scanning lamp ON and OFF.
* Controls the scanning lamp intensity.
2. ivlechanism
a.
Turning the Scanning Lamp ON and OFF
The microprocessor (slave; Q302) on the DC
controller PCB causes the transistor (Q324) to
goON,therebycausingthescanninglamp(LAl)
to go ON; the lamp goes OFF when Q324 goes
OFF.
b. Controlling the Scanning Lamp Intensity
The intensity of the scanning lamp is varied by
controlling the voltage supplied to it in response
to the level of the intensity adjustment signa1
(LINT) from the DC controller PCB.
The LINT signa1 varies between 10 and 16 V
as determined by the copy density correction
lever, controlling the voltage supplied to the
scanning lamp so that it varies between 50 and
75 V (phase control).
WhentheCTunitisused,thevoltageapplied
to the scanning lamp is raised by about 1.8 V as
opposed to when the black developing assembly
is used so as to increase the intensity of the
scanning lamp. A constant voltage (70 V),
however, is applied to the scanning lamp during
AE exposure for both the black developing assembly and CT unit.
c. Error Identification Circuit
The scanning lamp is monitored using the lamp
ON signa1 (LIGHT).
lf the scanning lamp ON signa1 (LIGHT) is
present on the DC controller for about 20 sec
continuously, the error identification signa1 generates the AC power OFF signa1 (ACOFF) to cut
off the AC power; see p. 3-47.

3. Copy Density Correction Lever
The copy density correction lever serves to prevent foggy images caused by deterioration of the
photosensitive drum. The copy density correction
lever changes the intensity of the scanning lamp,
and a higher frees the copies of fogging.

The copier has an automatic exposure (AE)
mechanism, which controls the DC component of
the development bias according to the density of the

3. Fteading the AE Sensor Output
The scanner is moved forward about 70 mm from
the image leading edge with the scanning lamp kept
ON; the AE sensor reads the document density, and
the output is sent to the DC controller.
Based on the output from the AE sensor, the DC
controller controls the DC component of the development bias.
The AE sensor consists of a photodiode (Q702)
and operation amplifier (Q701); when the light received by the photodiode (reflected by the document) is strong, the output voltage (AE) of the
operation amplifier is low; on the other hand, if the
The DC controller reads the output (AE) of the AE

main motor.
The level of toner inside the black developing
assembly is monitored by the toner sensor (Q9):
and, whenthefevelfalls belowaspecifiedvalue, the

The CT unit cannot be replenished with tener;
replace the CT unit as a whole when it runs out of
toner.
The toner collected by the cleaning blade is
stored inside the drum cleaning unit.
Thedevelopingassemblyisbrought intocontact
with the photosensitive drum together with the
developing assembly rail by the developing assembly release lever.
the Toner Level
A piezoelectric oscillator toner sensor (Q9) is
provided inside the black developing assembly to
monitor the level of toner.
Theoutputofthetonersensorremains’i’as
long
as a specific level of toner is inside the assembly;
whenthetonerdecreases belowthelevel,theoutput
goes ‘0’.
The DC controller reads the output signa1 for 5
sec aftercopy operation is over; if the signa1 remains
‘O’continuously, it recognizes ‘no toner 1’. When ‘no
toner 2’ is recognized, the DC controller flashes the
ADDTONERindicatorandprohibitscopyoperation.
The CT unit is not equipped with a toner level
detection mechanism, or the cleaning unit is not
equipped with a waste toner level detection mechanism.
3. Torque Limiter
If a large load is imposed on the photosensitive

H. Blank Control
2. Controlling the Blank Exposure Shutter
1. Outline
The copier uses the light from the pre-exposure
lamp to black out the non-image section in the
REDUCE mode or section not in contact with the
drum in the DIRECT mode.
The blank exposure shutter serves to control the
area over which the light is directed.
The blank exposure shutter is operated by the
drivefrom the lens drive motor (M3) by way of gears
when the blank shutter solenoid (SL4) is OFF.
The lens drive motor first returns the blank exposure shutter to the home position (at Q2); it then
rotates in response to the drive pulses from the DC
controllersuitedtothereduction ratio, therebysliding
the blank exposure shutter.
To black out (white out) the non-image section
between two copies, the copier changes the potentialonthegrid biasoftheprimarycoronaunit instead
of using blank exposure; see p. 3-29.
To black out the non-image section for reduced
copies or section not in contact with the drum in the
DIRECT mode, the light of the pre-exposure lamp is
directed against the drum by way of the reflecting
plate, thereby preventing adhesion of toner on the
drum.

1. Controlling the Transfer
Corona Wire Cleaning
Mechanism
2. Cleaning Niechanlsm
1. Outline
The copier has an automatic cleaning mechanism for the transfer corona wire; cleaning is executed when the power switch is turned ON or when
the fixing assembly is 1OO”C/212”F or below.
The wire cleaner is moved by the cleaner motor
(M4) back and forth once along the wire (about 20
sec).
When the wire cleaner mount moving folward by
M4 actuates the microswitch (SW9) located at the
rear of thetransfer rail, M4 rotates in reverse to move
the wire cleaner in reverse.
The wire cleaner stops when the wire cleaner
mount actuates the microswitch (SW6) located in
front of the transfer rail (home position). If SW6 is not
actuated, the COPY START key on the control panel
remains red for 90 sec even after the wait period is
over.
If the power is turned OFF in the middle of
cleaning operation, the wire cleaner mount stops
where it is. If the transfercorona assembly has been
dertached in this condition, attach it back to the
copier while holding the wire cleaner at the rear by
hand.

A. Outline
Figure 3-39 shows the basic construction of the
pick- up/feed system.
When the pick-up clutch solenoid (SLI or SL2)
goes ON while the main motor (MI) is rotating, the
drive of the main motor causes the pick-up roller to
rotate, thereby movingthe paperto feeder roller 1 or
2.
Afterhaving passedthroughthefeederroller,the
copy paper is moved by the registration roller so that
the leading edge of the image on the photosensitive
drum and that of the copy paper match; thereafter,
the paper is sent to thetransfer unit, separation unit,
feeder unit, fixing assembly, delivery unit, and to the
copy tray.
The path along which the copy paper moves is
provided with photointerrupters (Q3, Q5) servicing
as the pre- registration and separation sensors and
withacontactsensor*(SW8),asthedeliverysensor.
If the paper fails to reach or pass the sensors within
a specific period oftime, thecondition is identified as
a jam and the JAM indicator on the control panel
starts to flash.
The counter increases by one when the delivery
sensor (SW8) detects the trailing edge of the copy
paper.

have been actuated, the microprocessor recognizes
the presence/absence of a cassette as shown in
Table 3-4 and, at the same time, determines where
to reverse the scanner and how to control the blank
shutter.
The presence/absence of a cassette in the cassette holderand thesize thereof are identified byfour
switches (CSTI through CST4) provided in each
cassette holder.

C. Fixing Assembly and Delivery Assembly
1. Controllfng theFfxfng RollerTemperature
The upper and lower rollers of the fixing assembly and the delivery roller of the delivery assembly
are driven by the main motor (Mi).
The upper roller has a built-in heater (Hl ,90 W),
which heats the roller.
The DC controller monitors the surface temperature of the upper roller by a thermistor (TH) to make
sure that it will remain as specified.
The specifics of the control are as follows:

The copier is equipped with the following four
types (or three types if NP2020) of protection
mechanism to prevent the fixing heater from
going ON at the wrong timing.
The microprocessor monitors the voltage of
TH1 ; when it finds an error, it issues EOOO or
EOOO. (See the SERVICE HANDBOOK.)
If the voltage of TH1 lowers to about 1 .O V or
lower (220°C equivalent), the error detection
circuit cuts off the power to the fixing heater
regardless of the output of the microprocessor.
(See p. 3-57.)
lf the temperature of the thermoswitch exceeds
230°C. the thermoswitch goes OFF to cut off
the power to the fixing heater.
If the SSR ON detection PCB detects the activation of the SSR, it sends the SSR ON signa1
to the DC controller PCB. In response, the DC
controller PCB compares the output timing of
the HTRD signa1 and the SSR ON timing,
issuing E004 upon identification of an error
(applies to NP2120 only: see the SERVICE
HANDBOOK).
Note:
Do not use the thermal switch (TS) once it has
opened; it cannot serve fts purpose unless
cooled to 0°C or less, not returning to normal
at ambient temperature.

2. Oil Application Roller
The upper fixing roller is provided with an oil
application roller for cleaning and application of oil.
Normally, the oil application roller remains away
from the fixing roller, and it comes into contact with
the upper fixing roller only when copy paper passes
through.
The mechanism is driven by the oil application
rollersolenoid (SL3); SL3 goes ON as soon as copy
paper reaches the separation sensor (Q5), thereby
bringing the oil application roller intocontact with the
upper fixing roller.
SL3 remains ON for about 4 seconds as timed by
the microprocessor; however, it goes OFF as soon
asthemainmotorstops

The lamp regulator generates LIGHT=l (scanning lamp ON signal) at all times as long as the
scanning lamp is ON.
The above conditions cause the No. 2 comparator of Q309 to generate ‘1’. thereby charging the
capacitar (C333).
C333 becomes fully charged about 20 seconds
thereafter: and output ‘1’ of the No. 2 comparator is
sent to the negative (-) input side of the No. 3
comparator. As a result, the output of the No. 3
comparator of Q309 goes ‘0’.
T h e above conditions generate ACOFF=O,
thereby causing the relay (RLI) to go OFF.
The copier can be reset after activation of the
errordetection circuit by turning it OFF and then ON.

The error detection circuit is found on the DC
controller PCB and serves to monitor the fixing
temperature and scanning lamp; Le., abnormal rises

F. Jam Detection
The copier monitors the movement of copy paper
using the following three sensors:
* Pre-registration sensor (Q3)
- Separation sensor (Q5)
- Delivety sensor (SWB)
Jams are identified in terms of the presencel
absence of paper at respective sensors at such
times as programmed in the microprocessor in advance.
The copier has mechanisms that remember the
“remaining number of copies” and the “copy modes”
in response to a jam, and such data are retained for
about ten minutes after the front cover is opened,
cutting out the power.
The microprocessor holds the following five jam
detection sequences and, further, it identifies a jam
if paper is detected at time of power-on.
When the copier identifies a jam, it immediately
stops operation and cuts out power to the fixing
heater (HI); at the same time, it flashes the ‘JAM’
indicatoron the control panel, indicating the location
of the jam.
No count is taken for jams which activate these
mechanisms.

2. Protection Mechanism for Power Supply
Circuit
A. DC Power Supply
The DC powersupply is equipped with protection
mechanisms to cut off the power should any of the
loads suffer a shorl because of an error.
The protection mechanism for 24V power is the
over-current detection mechanism in the switching
regulator (Q204); upon activation, the circuit also
cuts off 12V and 5V outputs. For 12V power, a
current fuse serves to protect against an over-current.
The protection mechanism for 5V power makes
use of the over-current detection circuit of the regulator(Q207);upon activation, theoutput ofonly5Vis
cut off.
For24V power, an over-voltage protection circuit
isadditionallyprovidedusing aZenerdiode(ZD201)
and thyristor (Q208).
The output, after activation of these protection
mechanisms, can be recovered by turning the door
switch OFF, correctingthe relevant load, and turning
the door switch ON once again.
If only 12V has been cut out, the door switch
should be turned OFF, the relevant load should be
corrected, fuse (FU202) should be replaced. and the
door switch should be turned ON once again.
1. Mechanism
The DC power supply PCB is supplied with AC
powerwhenthedoorswitchandPOWERswitchare
turned ON.
On the DC power supply PCB, the AC power is
rectiiied and smoothed out. lts voltage then is
lowered by the transformer (T201); thereafter, it is
made available in 24V, 12V. and 5V by filters and
regulator.
For 24V power, the output voltage is checked; it
is fed back to the switching regulator (Q204) by way
of a photocoupler (Q205) for stabilization.
5V power is stabilized by the regulator (Q207).

2. Protection Mechanism
1. Mechanism
TheprotectionmechanismoftheDCpowersupply
for options makes use of the over-current protection
circuit inside the switching regulator (QIOI).
It is also equipped with an over-voltage protection
circuit identical with that for the DC power supply of
the copier itself.
The output. after activation of the protection
mechanism, can bereturnedbyturningoffthepower,
correcting the relevant load oftheoption, and turning
the power ON once again.
The DC power supply for options supplies the
document feeder and sorter with 24V power.
The transformer (Tl 01) lowers the voltage of the
130 VDC from the copier and filters it to produce an
output of 24 V. The output voltage is then checked
and fed back to the switching regulator (0101) by
way of a photocoupler (Q102) for stabilization.

mechanical drive paths, and = indicates electrical signa1
Signals in digital circuits are identified as ‘1’ for High and ‘0’ for Low. The voltage of signals,
however, depends on the circuít.
Nearly all operations of the copíer are controlled by microprocessors; the interna1 workings of
these processors are not relevant to the serviceman’s work and, therefore, 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
controllerPCBinputports;from DCcontrolleroutputportstoloads;andminorcontrolcírcuitsand

1. BASIC CONSTWUCT~ON
A. Outline of Electrical Circuitry
The paper deck pedestal is controlled by signals
from its host copier and from its own controller.
The copier sends signals as programmed in
advance to the controller inside the pedestal.
In response to the signals from the copier and
from its own microswitches and sensors, the pedestal3 controller generates signals to drive iti motor
and clutches.
Figure Z-201 is a block diagram showing the
relationship among the pedestal3 majar circuits.
The pedestal is supplied with 24 V, 5 V, and 115V
VAC by the host copier.

1. Releasing the Pick-Up Roller
E. Releasing the Pick-Up and
Separation Rollers
The paperdeck isof a front loading type; as such,
the deck is pulled out for a supply of paper.
When the deck is pulled out, the pick-up and
separation rollers are released; this design facilitates positioning of the deck and clearing of jams
The pick-up roller is released as soon as the grip
of the deck is pulled.
When the latch on the grip comes off the cam on
the edge of the roller release shaft, the arm on the
rollerreleaseshaftrisesandthepick-uproller, inturn,
is raised.
On the other hand, when the latch on the grip
pushes up the cam upon insertion of the deck. the
arm lowers and, in turn, the pick-up roller is lowered.
The arm is also used to release the pick-up roller
during pick-up operation.

Discussion will be limited to thevariable resistors (VR), LEDs, and checkpins that can be used in the field from
among those the copying machine is equipped with.
Those not discussed are for adjustment at the factory only, and adjustments and checks using them call for
special tools and instruments as well as high accuracy. Do not touch them in the fields.
