OVERVIEW OF MAINTENANCE
– 1.1 –
1-1. Cautions in maintenance
CAUTION
• To prevent the ink from getting into your eyes, be sure to wear safety goggles and
gloves when cleaning the print head or replacing the S pump assembly or if the
ink is anticipated to scatter. If the ink sticks to your hand, the skin may be damaged.
• Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the manufacture.
Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's instructions.
• Do not get ink drops on the FPC or connectors when connecting or disconnecting
the damper. Doing so may cause short-circuit or inferior contact resulting in abnormal
ink discharge.
Be careful when handling ink.
• Properly and carefully connect the FPC cable of the slider PCB from the main PCB
according to the connector number. Failure to do so may cause short-circuit of the
power supply.
• Do not turn the power off during firmware upgrading. Doing so may disable restarting.
Following cautions have to be taken when conducting maintenance works.
• Be sure to fully understand precautions given in “For safe operation” in the Instruction Manual for the
JV3 series.
• Be sure to accurately grasp problems since misoperation can be the cause of the problem.
• Be sure to secure a sufficient space for maintenance.
• Be sure to turn off the power switch and disconnect the power plug from the receptacle.
• In the case where it is necessary to conduct test with the electrical box cover opened, caution should be
taken to avoid electric shock hazards in the electrical box.
• In the case where it is necessary to conduct maintenance works with the power on, carefully observe the
movement of the head. (Keep any part of your body away from the moving parts.)
• Shift the paper (in the X-direction) and the head (in the Y-direction) using the jog keys. If it is necessary
to shift the paper and the head by hand with the power turned off, exercise care to shift them slowly.
• Do not tilt the plotter with the ink cartridges filled with ink. Doing so can give rise to leakage of ink.
(In particular, do not position the plotter in such a way, when ascending/descending the stairs, that the
maintenance station is lower than the ink station.)
In principle, the following procedure should be taken in prior to the transportation.
1) Discharge ink from the tube in accordance with the description given under “Discharge cleaning” in
the maintenance.
2) Detach the waste ink tank.
3) Fix the head with the head stopper.
• If the main unit is removed from the legs and placed directly on the floor, be careful of the following points.
• Unplug the takeup unit power cord.
• Remove the waste ink tank. (Plug the tube up with a cloth to prevent ink from spilling over.)
• Set up the roll holder and take-up device to the upper position.
• Double Pole / Neutral Fusing.

Media
• Basically, 360 x 360 dpi is not recommended.
• In the 360 dpi mode, the dot diameter is small and therefore
the density is low and banding is remarkable.
360 x 540
• Use for high-speed output applications is recommended.
• 6-pass specification or higher is recommended.
• Tarpaulin
(For draft purpose)
In the 6-pass specification or higher mode, the amount of feed
is small and the accuracy improved, allowing banding to be
reduced by software processing.
In addition, good fixing and drying characteristics can reduce
banding caused by beading.
720 x 720
• Basically, 720 dpi is recommended.
• 8-pass specification or higher is recommended.
In the 8-pass specification or higher mode, the amount of feed
is small and the accuracy improved, allowing banding to be
reduced by software processing.
In addition, good fixing and drying characteristics can reduce
banding caused by beading.
• If the desired density cannot be obtained, double painting is
recommended.

EXPLANATION OF OPERATION
– 2.1 –
2-1. Explanation of electrical components
2-1-1. Operations
* The slider of the JV3 is provided with three heads with inline arrangement, with 180 nozzles (at 180dpi
intervals) x 2 rows (2 colors) for each head.
* The ink in the ink chamber is discharged by vibrating the piezo-electric element of the head. The JV4
uses four different vibration waveform modes: the V1 (Variable1) mode which enables four gradations
(without L, M, and S) with 360 dpi resolution, the V2 (Variable2) mode which enables four gradations
with smaller dots with 720 dpi resolution, the N1 (Normal1) mode which enables high-speed two
gradations (1.0) with 360 dpi resolution, and the N2 (Normal2) mode which enables high-speed two
gradations with 720 dpi resolution.
However, note that the Normal waveform modes are not used when normal data is received from the
host PC. (Some Variable waveforms are represented in two gradations.)
Since the driving frequency (or the scanning speed of the head) depends on each waveform, Y-directional
position adjustment is required for each waveform.
* The main PCB is provided with two FPGAs (HDCs) which generate the driving signal (COM waveform) to be applied to the piezo-electric element of one nozzle row for two heads. The COM waveform
is applied in synchronization with the scale interval of each linear scale and, at the same time, the nozzle
data is transferred to the head. Y-directional position adjustment can be made in units of one dot or less
by adjusting the timing of the COM waveform for each nozzle row.
Since the ink discharge performance depends on each head, the COM waveform is corrected automatically
based on the head ID registered and the ambient temperature detected. (If the head ID is not registered
correctly, no ink may be discharged.)
* The main PCB is provided with the FPGA (PDC) in charge of image processing to which the 128MB
DSRAM picture memory (PRAM) is connected. As for the data output from the host PC, the command
is analyzed by the CPU and the image is transferred to the memory through high-speed DMA. Since the
PRAM has the ring memory configuration, head scanning is started when data for each scanning has
been stored. Since only an image with 180 dpi resolution can be formed into the X direction in each
scanning, the image with the target resolution is completed while making required amount of paper
feed.
* Stepping motors, sensors, and many other IO devices are connected to the JV3. Therefore, if all of them
are connected directly to the main PCB, it becomes difficult to handle wires and replace the PCB. To
avoid this, the number of signals has been reduced through serial signal transmission with the main PCB
using IO PCBs. This signal processing is performed by the FPGA (PDC) mounted on the main PCB.

2-1-3. Main PCB
The SH-3 (RISC, 133MHz) from Hitachi is used as the CPU.
The program of the CPU is stored in the flash memory. This program can easily be upgraded
on site through the interface.
During upgrading, the program is downloaded to the PRAM by the CPU and then stored in
the flash memory of the CPU.
When the receive data is read from the interface, the CPU loads the data in the picture memory
through the PDC-CTR. The picture memory consists of a 128 MB DSRAM.
The PDC-CTR performs necessary mask processing, performs X-Y conversion, then transfers
it to the HDC-CTR PCB with 8-bit width.
Upon reception of data transmission, the HDC-CRT generates the COM signal for driving
Head to Head 3, creates nozzle data, then transfers data to the Slider PCB through the HDCFPC
cable.
It is provided with an absorption fan and cutter drive circuit, Paper width sensor, temperature
sensor, Ink cartridge 1-3 presence/absence sensor, Ink cartridge 1-3 end sensor, Ink cartridge
1-3 read circuit.

Ink system
Ink system is the general term of a mechanism specific to ink-jet printing system for
protecting a nozzle against troubles such as clogging and recovering it if it should be in
trouble.
Head capping
Head capping is a mechanism for automatically capping the nozzle so as to prevent it
from drying. As long as the head is on the station in the right-hand side cover, it is capped.
Clogged nozzle
In such an event that a specific nozzle fails to discharge any ink because the ink in the
head has thickened or the nozzle itself has dried up, the nozzle called the “clogged nozzle.”
Deflection
A finished state of a drawing on which lines are not plotted straight since a specific nozzle
has failed to discharge ink straight on the paper because of the dust-accumulated or damaged
nozzle surface.
Satellite
Discharged ink is shot as main drops or satellite drops.
If satellite drops are contained in main drops, the ink shot may shift.
Head cleaning
Recovers normal ink discharge by removing bubbles in the head and foreign objects on
the head surface.
Wiping
Wipes the nozzle surface with wiper rubber surface to fix the condition of nozzle holes in
order to remove foreign objects or ink leakage on the nozzle surface.
Flashing
Make idling discharges of ink which may thicken at the point of the nozzle, for refreshment.
Ink suction
Absorbs ink from nozzle by means of the ink suction pump.
Sleep refresh
If the front power switch is turned off when the main power switch is on, the sequence of
power-on R nozzle refresh R power-off is automatically repeated at fixed intervals to
prevent nozzle plugging.

2-2-2. Brief explanation of the ink system
The ink system control mainly contains the following functions.
• Processing when turning the power on
• Processing when starting plotting
• Refreshing operation
• Standby operation
• Ink end monitoring
• Head cleaning operation
• Replacement of ink cartridge
• IC chip function

– 2.15 –
Processing when power is turned ON
If it is anticipated that the ink will have thickened while the power was OFF, and if there
is expected to be danger that the uncapped nozzle will be dry when the power is turned
ON, then cleaning action is executed to restore the ink ejection condition to what it was
originally.
While the power is OFF, the timer incorporated into the main unit is backed up by a
battery. After about 7 years this battery discharges to a voltage at which the timer can no
longer operate. Accordingly, the maximum measurable time during which the power is
OFF is 7 years.
Processing when plotting starts
Even if the nozzle has been capped, since the ink gradually thickens it is necessary to
measure the time during which the unit is on standby with the nozzle capped. When
plotting starts, either ink is ejected from all nozzles or all of the nozzles are cleaned, by an
amount corresponding to the measured standby time, to avoid defective ink ejection on
account of increased ink viscosity.
Refreshing operation
During plotting, only some of the nozzles discharge ink. To prevent nozzles that are at
rest from drying and ink from thickening, the head is moved onto the cap inside of the
station, at fixed intervals, and ink is ejected from all nozzles to maintain stable ink ejection.
The “refresh interval” and the number of times that ink is ejected can be varied by varying
the “refresh level” on a menu that is open to the user.
Standby state
To prevent the nozzle from drying, the head is automatically carried back to the station
unless the next scanning starts after three seconds have passed after the completion of the
last scanning.
Ink end monitoring
At fixed intervals a sensor monitors the ink level, and detects the following.
• Ink remains: Plotting is possible.
• Ink near end: Plotting is possible (ink cartridge replacement is recommended).
• Ink end: Plotting is not possible (plotting is suspended, and the system waits for ink
cartridge replacement).
• No ink cartridge: Plotting is not possible.

Remarks

Ink cartridge replacement
When an error occurs because ink has run out or an ink cartridge has not been installed,
the user should replace the ink cartridge, or if there is none, install one. In particular,
when ink has not yet passed through the head at all (when the plotter is shipped from the
factory), initial filling of ink is carried out so that ink will pass from the ink cartridge
through the tube to the head.
Miscellaneous
a) The cap inside the station must be kept at the proper humidity to prevent the nozzle
from drying out. For this reason, whenever the head is put into or taken out of the
station, ink is ejected to keep the nozzle moist. Conversely, if so much ink has been
ejected that the nozzle is too moist, ink is ejected from inside the cap to the waste ink
tank with the pump mechanism to keep the humidity at its optimum level.
b) This unit has a paper width sensor mechanism and a cutter mechanism in the head; the
paper width detection action and the paper cutting action make it necessary for the
head to move in and out of the station. The actions described in a) are necessary in this
case also.
– 2.17 –
2-2-3. Parameters related to the ink system
To control the ink system, the following two items of parameter groups are stored on the
Flash memory.
• Ink parameters 1 → Any change of ink parameters 1 is prohibited since they are used to
control the ink system.
• Ink parameters 2 → Any change of ink parameters 2 is prohibited since they are used
for experiments and evaluations in MIMAKI Development Division.
• Ink parameters 3 → Any change of ink parameters 2 is prohibited since they are used
for experiments and evaluations in MIMAKI Development Division.
Ink parameters 1
Parameters to be used to control the ink system such as the parameters for the humidity
control inside the cap, etc. are saved on . Parameter values are updated and managed by
the firmware. They are saved when turning the power off.
If any of these parameter values should be changed, the ink system would be out of control.
They must not be changed from the factory-designated initial settings.
Ink parameters 2, Ink parameters 3
Control constants used for the ink system processing are saved on. They must not be
changed since they are used by MIMAKI Development Division for experiments and
evaluations.
• When the main PCB has been replaced (meaning that the Flash memory has
been initialized), the following procedure must be followed to match ink parameters
1, which control the ink system, to the actual situation.
1. All heads are cleaned once (soft cleaning is sufficient) → the indication of ink amount
inside the cap must be matched to the actual situation.
2. The number of times that wiping has taken place is set to the value before the
replacement. → ink parameters 1 No. 8
3. The running meter parameter is set to its value before the replacement.
→ #Adjust -REPLACE COUNTER (page 5.15).
• The ink system is controlled so that MIMAKI-brand ink be discharged in stable
condition. Operation with non-MIMAKI brand ink is not guaranteed.

2-2-4. IC Chip Function
IC chip detecting timing
The read timing of the IC chip is shown below.
• When the power is turned ON
• When the carriage is inserted
• When plotting is completed
• During ink system operation (Cleaning, Initial Filling, and Filling)
If the following result appears after reading the IC chip, replace the ink cartridge or attach it
correctly to avoid errors.
Until errors are avoided, all ink system operations (Initial Filling, Filling, Cleaning, Flashing,
Wiping etc.) and ink discharge operation are disabled.
For error solution, refer to [3-2-2. Ink-related components and other components].

• Make this adjustment only if a problem occurs when the media is normally set and
the following pattern is plotted using a combination of MIMAKI-brand Grossy White
PET(SPC-0111) and MIMAKI-brand colorant ink.
Reason : This adjustment changes the reference value for media correction. With
this change, the four types of [SET UP - MEDIA COMP.] for the user are all changed
and therefore the user needs re-adjustment.
