Actual is the state that “Fit to page” is not selected.
“Fit to page” automatically sets the enlarge/reduce scale so that the entire image fits
into the printable area or the border free area when border free layout is selected.
When the original image is smaller than general card size (approx. 54mm x 86mm),
the print margins will be different from the one that is defined by each layout.
The image placement uses the upper left corner as the origin and any margins that
occur during the fitting process occur along the bottom and/or right edge.

Following explains the basic components for the Print Head.
† PZT
PZT is an abbreviation of Piezo Electric Element. Based on the drive waveform
generated on the Main Board, the PZT selected by the nozzle selector IC on the
Print Head pushes the top of the ink cavity, which has ink stored, to eject the ink
from each nozzle on the nozzle plate.
Black
C#2
C#1
The basic operating principles of the Print Head, which plays a major role in printing,
are the same as the previous printer (Stylus Photo R300/R310); on-demand method
which uses PZT (Piezo Electric Element). In order to uniform the ejected ink amount,
the Print Head has its own Head ID (13-digits code for this Print Head for Stylus
CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3800/DX3850) which adjusts PZT voltage
drive features.
So, you are required to store the Head ID pasted on the Print Head into the EEPROM
by using the Adjustment Program when replacing the Print Head, the Main Board Unit,
the Printer Mechanism with new one. (Note: there are no resistor arrays to determine
the Head ID on the Main Board.) And then, based on the stored Head ID into the
EEPROM, the Main Board generates appropriate PZT drive voltage.

The Print Head has the Electric Poles (CSIC Connectors) to store the ink consumption
amount data into the CSIC chip mounted on the Ink Cartridge. By storing the ink
consumption amount data, this printer can detect the ink consumption status, such as
Ink Low/Out condition.

This section explains the process which the Printheads of On-Demand inkjet printers
eject ink from each nozzle.
1.
2.
Normal state:
When the printing signal is not output from the Main Board (C612 Main), or the
PZT drive voltage is not applied, the PZT does not change the shape. Therefore,
the PZT does not push the ink cavity. The ink pressure inside the ink cavity is kept
normal. (refer to Figure 2-4 (p.38): Normal state)
Ejecting state:
When the print signal is output from Main Board (C612 Main), the nozzle selector
IC located on the Print Head latches the data once by 1-byte unit. Based on the
drive waveform (common voltage) generated on the Main Board, the PZT selected
by the nozzle selector IC pushes the top of the ink cavity. By this operation, the ink
stored in the ink cavity is ejected from nozzles. (refer to Figure 2-4 (p.38):
Ejecting state)
OPERATING PRINCIPLES
2.2.2.2 Printing Method
The dot printing systems of CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3800/DX3850 are
variable dot printing systems.
† Variable dot printing
This printing mode is developed to improve the print quality on exclusive paper.
This mode is basically the same as variable dot printing mode used on other
products; micro dot, middle dot and large dot compose this mode. The printing dot
size varies according to the print data and this mode enables to output even sharper
image on exclusive paper.

2.2.3 Carriage Mechanism
The Carriage Mechanism consists of Carriage Unit (including the Print Head, CR
Encoder Board and PW Sensor), CR Motor, Timing Belt and CR Scale etc.
Following figure shows you each component for the CR Mechanism.
The above control and sequences correct the drive current value of the CR Motor
according to not only the mechanical load but also the variations of the motor and like.
In addition, the resultant CR drive current value is used to calculate a heating value,
and when the specified heating value is reached, wait time is provided per CR path for
printing.

† CR measurement sequence
To set the appropriate drive current value according to the variation of the CR
mechanical load, the mechanical load is measured in a CR measurement sequence
and saved into the EEPROM in a power-on or I/C change sequence. A fatal error
will occur if too much load is applied to the CR drive system.

† Heat generation control
Using low-cost DC motors, this product grasps the variations of the torque
constants, coil resistances and power supply voltages of the individual DC motors
adequately to carry out heat generation control according to individual differences.
† CR variation measurement sequence
The variations of the torque constant, coil resistance and power supply voltage of
the motor are measured in a CR variation measurement sequence when the CR
mechanical load is in the initial status and saved into the EEPROM. According to
the variations (individual differences) measured in this sequence, the voltage is
corrected to make the drive current value constant (without an individual
difference).

2.2.3.2 Carriage Home Position Detection
1.
Current position temporary detection sequence determines if the carriage is in the
carriage lock position and releases the carriage if it is locked.
2.
The carriage is moved to the left frame hit position and the carriage motor is
stopped.
3.
The position that is specified steps right from the stopping place is defined as an
origin, and from that time, positional information is monitored by the linear
encoder.
If the positional information could not be gained during detecting carriage home
position due to the following causes, fatal error occurs.
•ObstructioMns on the carriage path or other factors are giving too much pressure
on the MCR motor.
•CR linear encoder failure, CR linear scale defect, etc.

Revision A
For your reference, the top or the end of a paper is usually detected with the PE Sensor.
In case that the PE Sensor cannot detect the top of a paper in the paper loading
sequence, the printer indicates the “Paper Out error”. If the PE Sensor cannot detect the
end of a paper in the paper feeding sequence, the printer indicates the “Paper Jam
error”. As for the details, refer to Chapter 3 “Troubleshooting”.
2.2.4.1 Paper Loading Mechanism
The Paper loading mechanism consists of the Change Lever in the Pump Unit, the
Holder Shaft Unit (including the Clutch mechanism) and the ASF Unit.
The Change Lever and the Clutch mechanism play a major role in the Paper loading
mechanism as follows.
1.
ASF home position detection function
The ASF Unit on this printer does not have the ASF Home Position Sensor.
Instead of the ASF Home Position Sensor, the Change Lever and the Clutch
mechanism is used to detect the ASF home position.
When the Change Lever is set on the Clutch mechanism with the counterclockwise
rotation of the PF Motor pinion gear, the ASF home position is detected by this
lever for the paper loading operation. In this time, the printer cannot load a paper
from ASF Unit because the drive of the PF Motor is not transmitted to the LD
Roller Shaft.
2.
Paper loading function
When the Change Lever is released from the Clutch mechanism with the
clockwise rotation of the PF Motor pinion gear, the ASF home position detection
function is changed over to the paper loading function. Therefore, the printer can
load a paper from ASF Unit because the drive of the PF Motor is transmitted to LD
Roller Shaft.
During paper loading, paper is transported from the ASF Unit into the printer by the
rotation of the 2 cams of the LD Roller.
„
Cam (Large) : Hopper release
„
Cam (Small) : Paper Back Lever release
When 1 page paper is loaded, the cams mentioned above prepare the Hopper and Paper
Back Lever for the next paper loading operation, and the remaining paper is returned to
the standby position.
Figure 2-7 (p.43) and Figure 2-8 (p.44) show you the ASF paper loading sequence and
the operation of each mechanism.

When the PF Motor pinion
gear rotates CCW direction
(right side view), the
Change Lever pushes down
the Clutch lever as right
figure and the Clutch lock
tooth is disengaged from
the Clutch Gear. As the
result, the LD Roller Shaft
dose not rotate at all
because the drive of the PF
Motor is not transmitted. In
this time, the Hopper is also
pushed down by the two
cams on the LD Roller
Shaft, and the Paper Back
Lever is set to avoid that
papers are slipped down
from the paper set position.

2.2.4.2 Paper Feeding Mechanism
Following figure shows you the transmission path for the PF Roller & the Paper Guide
Roller and the EJ Roller & the Star Wheel.
The Paper feeding mechanism consists of PF Motor, PF Roller, EJ Roller, PE Sensor,
PF Encoder and PF Scale etc. The Paper feeding mechanism feeds a paper loaded from
ASF Unit by using pairs of rollers.
1.
One pair is the PF Roller and the Paper Guide Roller which is assembled in the
Paper Guide Upper Unit. The drive of the PF Motor is transmitted to the Paper
Guide Roller through the PF Roller.
2.
Another pair is the EJ Roller and the Star Wheel which is assembled on the EJ
Frame Unit. The drive of the PF Motor is transmitted to the Star Wheel through the
EJ Roller.
The top of a paper is loaded to the PF Roller from the ASF Unit in the paper loading
sequence. And then, when the PF Motor pinion gear rotates CW direction (left side

2.2.5 Ink System Mechanism
The Ink System Mechanism consists of Pump mechanism with Carriage lock
mechanism and Capping mechanism with Wiper mechanism. Following table lists the
function for each mechanism.
Table 2-4. Function for each mechanism
Mechanism
Capping mechanism *
Function
This is to cover the surface of the Print Head with the cap in
order to prevent the nozzle from increasing viscosity.
Wiper mechanism
This is to remove the foreign material and unnecessary ink on
the nozzle plate of the Print Head.
Pump mechanism
This is to eject the ink from the Ink Cartridge, the ink cavity and
the cap to the Waste Ink Pad.
Carriage lock mechanism
This is to lock the Carriage Unit with the Change Lever while
the Carriage Unit is at the home position.
Note : Like the previous printers (Stylus Photo R300/R310), this printer adopts the valveless
cap system. The air valve system used for the previous printer (Stylus COLOR 740)
have two functions by the CR position in the capping condition as follows.
OPERATING PRINCIPLES
Printer Mechanism
1) Valve closing condition (CL position)
By closing the air valve, the ink is forcibly absorbed from the Ink Cartridge
or the ink cavity by the Pump Unit and is ejected to the Waste Ink Pad while
the Carriage Unit is in the CL position.
2) Valve opening condition (Ink absorption position)
By opening the Air valve, the negative pressure is decreased and only the
ink inside the Cap is ejected while the Carriage Unit is in the further right
side than the CL position. (the ink is not absorbed from the Ink Cartridge or
the ink cavity.)
The following shows you the Carriage Unit position for each condition easily.
Printing area
CR home position
CL position
(valve closing condition)
Ink absorption position
(valve opening condition)
But, on the valveless cap system, the above 2) operation is done outside the
capping position. The Carriage Unit moves outside the CR home position and
the pump absorbs the ink inside the Cap.

EPSON Stylus CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3800/DX3850
Revision A
2.2.5.1 Capping Mechanism
The Capping mechanism covers the Print Head with the Cap to prevent the nozzle from
increasing viscosity when the printer is in stand-by state or when the printer is off.
When the Carriage Unit is in the
home position, the hook of the Slider
Lock Lever is not latched to the dent
of the Cap Frame.
In this time, the protrusion of the Cap
Slider Lever does not reach the
rightmost position of the Cap Frame.
† Wiper with the Cap unit
The wiping operation is controlled by the Carriage Unit movement. This operation
is usually performed with every CL sequence which is to absorb the ink from the
ink cartridge, the ink cavity by the Pump unit. Following figure shows you the
mechanism for the wiping operation.
Step 1
Step 2
Latched
Not latched
Capping position (CR home position)
When the Carriage Unit moves to the
left side from the Wiper setting
position, the Cap Unit is pulled back
by the tension force of the Extension
Spring 0.788.
In this time, the Cap Unit is
automatically set to the wiping
position because the hook on the
Slider Lock Lever is latched to dent
of the Cap Frame. And, the wiping
operation is performed according to
the Carriage Unit movement.
The Carriage Unit moves to the Wiper
setting position on the rightmost
position of the Cap Frame with keeping
the Cap covered.
In this time, the hook of the Slider Lock
Lever is latched to the dent of the Cap
Frame.

slider returns to the bottom
position completely.
(The broken line is the

2.2.5.2 Pump Unit Mechanism
1.
The PF Motor also controls the Pump Unit mechanism (including the Change Lever) as
well as the Paper loading/feeding mechanism. The drive of the PF Motor is always
transmitted to the Pump Unit. (And also, its drive is transmitted to the LD Roller
through the Clutch mechanism & the Change Lever.)
On this printer, the Pump Unit mechanism including the Change Lever plays a major
role expecting the ink eject operation. And, these operations control depending on the
PF Motor rotational direction as the following table below.
Following figure shows you the overview of the Pump Unit mechanism operation.
Ink eject operation (usual operation)
The ink is absorbed from the Ink Cartridge, the ink cavity and is ejected to the
Waste Ink Pad from the Cap when the Ink Tube is pressed by a roller in the Pump
Unit.

Carriage lock operation by the Change Lever
Unlike the previous printer (Stylus COLOR 680), this printer does not have the
Carriage Lock Lever with the Wiper.
Instead of the Carriage Lock Lever, the Change Lever is set to the front side of the
printer while the Carriage Unit is in the CR home position.
(As for the detailed mechanism for setting the Change Lever, refer to Figure 2-7
(p.43) Step 2)
2.2.6 Ink Sequence
† Initial ink charge
After the printer is purchased and the power is turned on for the first time, the
printer must perform the Initial Ink Charge to charge the ink inside the ink cavity.
When the Initial Ink Charge is completed properly, the printer releases the flag
inside the EEPROM. Initial Ink Charge will take about 107 seconds for Stylus
CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3800/DX3850. If the power is turned off
during the Initial Ink Charge, the CL3 will be performed at next power on timing.
† Manual Cleaning
The Stylus CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3800/DX3850 provides three
types of manual cleaning to clean air bubbles, clogged ink with viscosity or
foreign substances.
The manual CL can be performed by the Control Panel Operation, the Printer
Driver Utility and the Adjustment Program.
OPERATING PRINCIPLES

Revision A
Independently of the printing path after the previous CL, perform manual CL from
CL1 to CL3 in order if the cumulative printing timer counter is less than 9min.
Only when the cumulative printing timer counter is more than 9min, execute only
CL1.
Additionally, if the I/C is Ink Low or Out condition, any manual cleaning is
prohibited and it is displayed on the LED indicators.
† Timer Cleaning
Like the previous printers (Stylus Photo R300/R310), this printer dose not have
Lithium battery which is used for the backup power source for Timer IC. So, this
printer manages the printer off period or cleaning cycle by using the following
method.
The Printer Driver sends the timer command to the printer before printing. The
timer command is generated based on the PC’s timer and it consists of year,
month, date, hour, minute and second. As soon as the printer receives the timer
command from the Printer Driver, the printer stores its command in address
06<H> and 07<H> in the EEPROM. Then, it is compared with the latest CL time
which is stored in address 04<H> and 05<H> in the EEPROM. And, In case that
the timer cleaning period is over the specific period, the printer performs the timer
cleaning automatically. In this time, the printer stores the timer command in
address 04<H>, 05<H>, 06<H>, 07<H> in the EEPROM.
Maximum 2.03g of the ink is consumed in the timer cleaning. (1.015g of black ink
and 1.015g of color ink are consumed.)
† Flashing
Two different flushing operations are executed for the following reasons.
OPERATING PRINCIPLES
„
Pre-printing flushing
This is done before a start of printing to eliminate ink viscosity in the Print
Head nozzles.
„
Periodic flushing
This is done during printing to prevent ink viscosity in the Print Head nozzles
from increasing.

2.3.1 Scanner Carriage Mechanism
2.3.1.1 Scanner Carriage Unit Overview
The Scanner Carriage Unit is constructed of a CIS Board (including linear CCD), Rod
Lens Array, LED (light source), etc.
† CIS Board
This takes the light information read from the document by the Rod Lens Array
and converts it to digital information using the linear CCD.
† Rod Lens Array
Many rod-shaped lenses are arranged in parallel, and the upright multiple images
of each lens is overlapped to form a single continuous image. Compared to a
regular lens, this has the special ability to reduce the distances between images.
It can project at 1 to 1 size for imaging a linear CCD with a width identical to an
A4 size document.

Line type, color CCD sensor can scan 1 line in main scan direction (parallel to the
Scanner Carriage Unit) by one time. When scanning next lines after the second line in
sub-scan direction, CR driving moves the Scanner Carriage Unit, which has CCD
sensor inside, and scan the other lines. The scanned data is sent to the control board.
The scanned data for “n” lines and “n-1” line are processed consecutively.

The 5V formed by the Combination Motor Driver (IC9) of C612 Main Board is
stepped down to 3.3V by the Regulator (IC10), and it is then used as drive voltage
for many elements. In addition, when SPC shifts to low power mode, the 3.3V that
was stepped down by the Regulator (IC10) is stepped down to 1.5V by the
Combination Motor Driver (IC9) and elements that had been driven by 3.3V are
driven by 1.5V for suppression of power consumption.

Nozzle selector IC on the Print Head driver
The common driver (IC11) generates a basic drive waveform according to the output
signals from CPU (IC8). The basic drive waveform is amplified by the transistors Q9
and Q10 (the amplified one is called drive waveform.) and then transferred to the
nozzle selector IC on the Print Head driver board. Print data is converted to serial data
by the CPU and then sent to the nozzle selector IC on the Print Head driver board.
Based on the serial data, the nozzle selector IC determines the nozzles to be actuated.
The selected nozzles are driven by the drive waveforms amplified by the transistor Q9
and Q10. Refer to Figure 2-19 (p.56) for the Print Head driver circuit block diagram.
† Head common driver circuit
The basic drive waveform is generated in the common driver (IC11) based on the
following 13 signal lines output from the CPU (IC8); DATA0-DATA9, LAT,
RESET, and PSCNT.
By the DATA signal output from the CPU, the original data for the basic drive
waveform is written in the memory in the common driver (IC11). The addresses
for the written data are determined by DATA0-DATA9 signals. Then, the
necessary data is selected from the address and appropriate basic drive waveform
is generated. Generated basic drive waveform is transferred to nozzle selector IC
on the Print Head driver board through the transistor Q9 and Q10 and applied to
the nozzle PZT specified by nozzle selector IC.
† Nozzle selector circuit
Printing data is allocated to the four rows (the number of the head nozzle rows)
and converted into serial data by the CPU (IC8). Then the converted data is
transferred to the nozzle selector IC through the two signals lines (HS01 to HS02).
Data transmission from the CPU to the nozzle selector synchronizes with the LAT
signal and SCK clock signal. Based on the transmitted data, appropriate nozzle is
selected and the PZTs of the selected nozzle are driven by the drive waveform
output from the head common driver.

2.4.2.3 Motor Driver Circuit
CPU
(IC8)
CR/PF Motor drive circuit
The motor driver IC (IC9) on the Main board drives CR/PF Motor. This product uses
DC motor and performs constant current PWM drive.
Based on the output pulse (signal) from CR Encoder or PF Encoder, the CPU (IC8) sets
the appropriate drive current value for each operational action and outputs the value as
a special control signal to the Motor Driver (IC9). Then, based on the signal output
from the CPU, the Motor Driver outputs the motor drive current to the CR/PF Motor.
When no data has been received for 5 minutes, the CPU sets the Motor Driver current
value to 0, turning off the Motor Driver, in order to conserve electricity.
Scanner Motor Driver Circuit
The motor driver IC (IC9) on the Main board drives Scanner Motor. This product uses
PM type stepping motor and performs constant current bi-polar drive.
The Motor Driver IC (IC9) forms the motor drive waveform based on the signal output
from the CPU (IC8), controlling the Scanner Motor.
When no data has been received for 5 minutes, the CPU sets the Motor Driver current
value to 0, turning off the Motor Driver, in order to conserve electricity.

2.4.2.4 Combination Circuit
Revision A
RTC Circuit
This printer differs from previous models by using a combination IC that integrates the
reset circuit, EEPROM and RTC.
By adoption of the large-capacity capacitor (C9) for timer, the Power-off timer can be
backed up for about one week after power-off.
Reset Circuit
RTC IC (IC7) on the Main Board monitors the three voltage: +3.3V for the logic line,
+5V for the logic line and +42V for the drive line. Reset Circuit outputs the reset signal
to CPU (IC8) in the following case.
† +3.3V line reset circuit
The 3.3V line is monitored at the VDD port of IC7, and if an abnormal voltage is
detected, a reset signal for the CPU is output from the FRST port of IC7.

2.4.2.5 Sensor Circuit
CPU (IC8) on the Main Board monitors the status of the printer by several sensors.
However, unlike the previous product, ASF Unit on this printer does not have ASF
Sensor. Instead of ASF Sensor, Change Lever and the Clutch mechanism is used to
detect ASF home position. (As for the ASF home position detection, refer to “2.2.4
Paper Loading/Feeding Mechanism” (p.41).)
Revision A
† Scanner HP Sensor
Mounted in the Scanner Unit, this sensor detects whether the CIS Unit is inside or
outside the home position
„
Inside HP
„
Outside HP : A low signal is output to the CPU.
: A high signal output to the CPU.
† PE Sensor
This sensor is mounted at the right side center of the Printer Mechanism, and it
detects the presence/absence of paper when the paper passes through the Paper
Guide Rear. The PE Sensor is constructed of a transmissive photosensor and the
PE Sensor Lever.
„
Paper Absent
: Because the PE Sensor Lever does not interfere between
the photosensor terminals, a low signal is output to the
CPU.
„
Paper Present
: The PE Sensor Lever interferes between the photosensor
terminals, and a high signal is output to the CPU.
† CR Encoder Sensor
The sensor is composed of a transmissive photosensor mounted to the back of the
carriage and a linear scale mounted in the CR scan direction. Minimum resolution
of 1/180 inch is provided, and output to the CPU is a high signal for the black slits
on the linear scale and a low signal for transparent slits. Control of the CR Motor is
based on the output signal. The home position of the Carriage Unit is detected by
this sensor.
† PF Encoder Sensor
The sensor is composed of a transmissive photosensors mounted to the loop scale
of the PF Roller Unit left side and to the Main Board. Minimum resolution of 1/
180 inch is provided, and output to the CPU is a high signal for the black slits on
the loop scale and a low signal for the transparent slits on the loop scale. Control of
the PF Motor is based on the output signal.
† Thermistor (THM)
The thermistor is directly mounted on the Print Head driver board. It monitors the
temperature around the Print Head and determines the proper head drive voltage to
uniform the weight of the ink fired from the Print Head. This information is fed
back to the CPU analog port. When the temperature rises, the head drive circuit
lowers the drive voltage: When the temperature lowers, the head drive circuit rises
the drive voltage.

Note : Since CR Motor and PF Motor are DC motors, the resistance among the electric poles
varies. Therefore, judge if it is normal or abnormal based on if there is operation of the

4.2 Caution regarding Assembling/Disassembling
of the Printer Mechanism, and How to Ensure
of Quality on Re-assembled Product
On current low end models, we basically forbade to remove Housing Lower from
Printer Mechanism in your repair. This is because there is a possibility of Main Frame
deformation when a part (such as Ink System Unit) is removed from Printer
Mechanism without Housing Lower.
For this reason, we recommend that a new Printer Mechanism be replaced along with
the Housing Lower when a part cannot be replaced without removing the Printer
Mechanism.
On these models, you have to remove Housing Lower from Printer Mechanism when
replacing [Waste Ink Pads] with new one.
Therefore, we clarify caution regarding assembling/disassembling of the Printer
Mechanism without Housing Lower, and how to ensure of quality on repaired
production this section.
[Caution regarding assembling/disassembling of the Printer Mechanism]
1) Main Frame
(a) Control of assembled standard position.
[Reason]
• The assembled accuracy of each part composed of Printer Mechanism is
based on Housing Lower.
[Service treatment]
• Confirm that there is no gap between Main Frame and Housing Lower.
[Reference]
• To ensure the assembled accuracy, you have to control the assembled
standard position of main frame against X/Y/Z-axis direction.
[X-axis direction]
• Make sure that main frame is correctly placed on the groove of Housing
Lower.
• Make sure that there is no gap between Main Frame and Housing Lower.
[Y-axis direction]
• Make sure that main frame is correctly placed on the groove of Housing
Lower.
• Make sure that there is no gap between Main Frame and Housing Lower.
DISASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY
Revision A
[Z-axis direction]
• Align dowel of Housing Lower with positioning hole of Main Frame and
ensure there is no gap.
(b) How to assemble of ASF Unit/Main Board Unit/Paper Guide Upper Unit
[Reason]
• There is a possibility that main frame deformation is caused extra force in
assembling. As the result, printing failure/operation failure occurs.
[Service treatment]
• Hold the opposite side by hand while you are installing the above parts.
2) CR Guide Frame
(a) Control of vertical level
[Reason]
• There is a possibility that printing failure occurs by CR Guide Frame
deformation.
[Service treatment]
• Handle Front Frame in assembling/disassembling carefully.
3) Carriage Unit
(a) Handling of Carriage Unit
[Reason]
• If Carriage Unit is damaged in assembling/disassembling of your repair,
there is a possibility that vital problem occur in user’s further operation.
[Service treatment]
• Handle Carriage Unit in assembling/disassembling carefully.
[How to ensure of quality on re-assembled product]
We judge that the quality of re-assembled product is ensured if there is no problem
about the print result by adjustment program.

5.1 Overview
In this printer, it is necessary to perform appropriate adjustment in order to maintain
consistent printing function and quality, eliminate differences of each printer
mechanism’s characteristics. Therefore, in case that the combination between the
printer mechanism and the Main Board changes or the Print Head is replaced during
the repair service, you must input the correct adjustment value into the EEPROM on
the Main Board by using the Adjustment program.
This section describes the procedure for adjustments required when the printer is
disassembled and assembled for repair or service.
5.1.1 Required Adjustments
C H E C K
P O IN T
If you remove or replace the specific part in your service/repair, you have to perform
the appropriate adjustment as listed Table 5-1 below.
In case that any parts are removed and assembled on the repair
product while running the Adjustment program, make sure to
turn off the printer.

6.1 Overview
This section provides information to maintain the printer in its optimum condition.
6.1.1 Cleaning
6.1.2 Service Maintenance
This printer has no mechanical components which require regular cleaning except the
Print Head. Therefore, when returning the printer to the user, check the following parts
and perform appropriate cleaning if stain is noticeable.
C A U T IO N
„
„
„
„
„
Never use chemical solvents, such as thinner, benzine, and
acetone to clean the exterior parts of the printer like the
Housing. These chemicals may deform or deteriorate the
components of the printer.
Be careful not to damage any components when you clean
inside the printer.
Do not scratch the coated surface of the PF Roller Unit. Use
soft brush to wipe off any dusts. Use a soft cloth moistened
with alcohol to remove the ink stain.
Do not use cleaning sheet included in the media for normal
usage. It may damage the coated surface of PF Roller Unit.
If the adhesive surface of the cleaning sheet is set to the LD
Roller shaft side and used to clean the LD Roller surface, it is
no problem.
When using compressed air products; such as air duster, for
cleaning during repair and maintenance, the use of such
products containing flammable gas is prohibited.
If any abnormal print (dot missing, white line, etc.) has occurred or the printer indicates
the “Maintenance request error” (This error is displayed as “Maintenance call error” in
the STM3), take the following actions to clear the error.
† Print Head cleaning
When dot missing or banding phenomenon has occurred, you need to perform the
Print Head cleaning operation*1 by using the Print Head cleaning function. This
function can be performed by the control panel operation, the printer driver utility
and the Adjustment program.
In case that the cleaning sequence is performed by the control panel operation,
confirm that the printer is in stand-by state (the Power LED is lighting), and hold
down the Ink SW on the control panel for more than 3 seconds. Then, the printer
starts the cleaning sequence (the Power LED blinks during this sequence).
In case that you select and perform the manual cleaning by the printer driver
utility, the most appropriate cleaning mode is selected. The following is the
process to perform the Print Head cleaning from the printer driver utility.
As for the operation of the Adjustment program, refer to Chapter 5 Adjustment.
Note *1:
The Stylus CX3700/CX3800/CX3805/CX3810/DX3850/DX3850 has three modes
for manual cleaning, and even during printing, the appropriate cleaning mode is
automatically selected and performed according to various conditions. Therefore the
ink consumption amount for manual cleaning varies depending on each mode (Refer
to Chapter 2).
† Exterior parts
Use a clean soft cloth moistened with water, and wipe off any dirt. If the exterior
parts are stained by the ink, use a cloth moistened with neutral detergent to wipe it
off.
† Inside the printer
Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any paper dust.
† LD Roller
When paper loading function does not operate because friction of the LD Roller is
lowered by any paper dust, set the adhesive side up of the cleaning sheet (included
in the media) to remove any paper dust. Repeat loading the cleaning sheet several
times.

Revision A
Select the “EPSON Status Monitor 3” in the printer driver utility, and make sure
that the printer is in stand-by state by using the Status monitor 3. If the printer is in
stand-by state, the following figure is indicated on the monitor.
† Maintenance request error (Maintenance call error)
Ink is used for the Print Head cleaning operation as well as the printing operation.
When the ink is used for the Print Head cleaning operation, the ink is drained to
the Waste ink pads and the amount of the waste ink is stored as the waste ink
counter into the EEPROM on the Main Board. Due to this, when the waste ink
counter has reached the limit of the absorbing capability of the Waste ink pads, the
Maintenance call error is indicated on Status monitor 3 as following figure
Figure 6-1. Status Monitor 3 Indication
2.
Select the “Head Cleaning” in the printer driver utility, and perform the Print Head
cleaning. After performing the Print Head cleaning operation, print a nozzle check
pattern by selecting the “Nozzle Check“. If you repeat the Print Head cleaning
operation without selecting the “Nozzle Check”, CL1, the weakest cleaning, will
be repeated.
Figure 6-3. Maintenance error indication in STM3
In this case, replace to new Waste ink pads and clear the waste ink counter stored into
the EEPROM. The waste ink counter can be reset only from the Adjustment program
because this printer dose not have the waste ink counter reset function by the control
panel SW. As for the procedure, refer to Chapter 5 Adjustment.
In your repair activity, check the waste ink counter along with the firmware version,
Main Board checker program version and nozzle check pattern on the nozzle check
pattern printing. If the waste ink counter is closed to its limit, recommend that the
Waste ink pads will be replaced with new one. This is because the “Maintenance
request error” will may occur after returning the repaired product to the customer.
