- Protect electrical parts from damage due to static electricity.
- Before removing a unit, after removing the power cord, allow the printer to sit for approx. 1 minute (for
capacitor discharging to protect the logic board ass'y from damages).
- Do not touch the timing slit strip film and timing slit disk film. No grease or abrasion is allowed.
- Protect the units from soiled with ink.
- Protect the housing from scratches.
- Exercise caution with the red screws, as follows:
i. The red screws of the paper feed motor may be loosened only at replacement of the paper feed motor
unit (DO NOT loosen them in other cases).
ii. DO NOT loosen the red screws on both sides of the main chassis, securing the carriage shaft
positioning (they are not adjustable in servicing).

(1) External cover removal
(I) Release the 2 hooks on the rear side of the printer (indicated by the blue circles).
(II) Release the hooks on the left and right side of the main case (indicated by the blue circle).
(III) While inserting the flat-blade screwdriver in the slots on the left and right sides of the printer front shown in
the figures below, release the hooks to remove the main case from the bottom case.

Be careful of wiring of the flexible cables and harness. Improper wiring or connection may cause breakage of a
line, leading to ignition or emission of smoke.
(I) Logic board ass'y wiring

(II) Paper feed motor side wiring
(3) Printer unit and bottom case unit assembly
In assembling the printer unit chassis into the bottom case unit, be cautious of the following points to protect the
waste ink tube from being pinched:
(I) At replacement of the platen unit (QM2-2202), purge unit (QM2-2208), waste ink tube (QC1-6458), or waste
ink tube holder (QC1-6460), fix the waste ink tube to the printer chassis and waste ink tube holder with tape (at
2 locations).
If the tube is pinched and blocked, proper purging is prevented, resulting in ink leakage or strange noise.
(No specific tape is specified. In the sample photo below, (1) is the orange tape, and (2) is a clear adhesive tape,
such as Sellotape or Scotch tape.)
1-17
(II) After securing the waste ink tube with tape, be careful not to damage the tube in installing the printer unit
chassis in the bottom case unit.
With the units assembled, the tube conditions are not visible. To confirm the tube is free from damage, perform
the manual purging 3 or 4 times, and confirm that no strange noise is heard.
[Example: The tube is pinched and blocked as it is not fixed with tape.]

(1) Paper feed motor adjustment
Perform the following adjustments when the paper feed motor unit is replaced:
1) When attaching the motor, fasten the screws so that the belt is properly stretched (in the direction indicated by
the blue arrow in the figure below).
2) After replacement, be sure to perform the service test print, and confirm that no strange noise or faulty print
operation (due to dislocation of the belt or gear, or out-of-phase motor, etc.) occurs.
Note: The red screws securing the paper feed motor may be loosened only at replacement of the paper feed motor
unit. DO NOT loosen them in other cases.

4. PRINTER TRANSPORTATION
This section describes the procedures for transporting the printer for returning after repair, etc.
1) In the service mode, press the Power button to finish the mode, and confirm that the paper lifting plate of the
sheet feeder unit is raised.
2) Keep the print head and ink tanks installed in the carriage.
[See Caution 1 below.]
3) Turn off the printer to securely lock the carriage in the home position. (When the printer is turned off, the
carriage is automatically locked in place.)
[See Caution 2 below.]
Caution:
(1) If the print head is removed from the printer and left alone by itself, ink (especially the pigment black ink)
is likely to dry. For this reason, keep the print head installed in the printer even during transportation.
(2) Securely lock the carriage in the home position, to prevent the carriage from moving and applying stress to
the carriage flexible cable, or causing ink leakage, during transportation.
Memo:
If the print head must be removed from the printer and transported alone, perform the following:
(1) Attach the protective cap (used when the packing was opened) to the print head (to protect the print head
face from damage due to shocks).

Part 2
TECHNICAL REFERENCE
1. NEW TECHNOLOGIES
(1) New ink tank system (PGI-5, CLI-8)
An LED is installed in each ink tank.
By the LED indication, wrong installation of the ink tanks will be prevented, and the remaining ink level can be
visually recognized with the ink tanks seated in the carriage.
The combination of the new pigment-based black ink with higher resistance against bleeding or marker pens and
the new dye-based inks with higher photo quality and weather resistance makes the new ink system strong in both
photo and text printing.
(2) Super-photo quality printing
By the FINE technologies, 1 pl of ultra-fine ink droplet is adopted. The iP4200 provides excellent super-photo
print quality without graininess at the maximum resolution of 9,600 dpi x 2,400 dpi*1, which is equal to that
of a 6-color printer.
*1: Printing at the minimum distance of 1/9600 inch between the dots.
(3) Speed
Approx. 51 sec. in 4 x 6 borderless printing (standard mode, PP-101, Full Page SCID No.2)
For reference: High-speed printing at 29 ppm in monochrome printing and 19 ppm in color printing have been
achieved.
(4) New functionality in Direct Printing
Plain paper is now usable in Camera Direct Printing from a digital camera or digital video camera, if both support
PictBridge.
File numbers can be printed on the images.
(5) Design
As the frame design, the printer consists of only the upper and lower cases along with the paper output tray of
4 slides (contributing to increase of the paper ejection speed). With the trays retracted, the printer is only 160
mm high (10 mm lower than the iP4000).
While keeping the functionality of retractable trays and cassettes, the round corners and edges of the upper
part of the printer give gentle impression in a compact body.
(6) USB 2.0 Hi-Speed supported
The printer supports USB 2.0 Hi-Speed, enabling high speed data transfer in use with the computer, OS, and USB
hub.

2. CLEANING MODE AND AMOUNT OF INK PURGED
To prevent printing problems due to bubbles, dust, or ink clogging, print head cleaning is performed before the start of
printing (when the cleaning flag is on), except in the following cases:
- Cleaning on arrival: Performed when the access cover is closed.
- Manual cleaning / deep cleaning: Performed manually.

However, this cleaning will be conducted up to 5 times from the printer installation, and no further
timer cleaning - 0 will be performed.
*2: The period of time since the previous cleaning is counted by Black and Color separately. For this
reason, the cleaning mode may differ according to Black or Color.
*3: When only the black ink tank is replaced, Black cleaning is performed. One of the color ink tanks is
replaced, Color cleaning is performed. Both the black and color ink tanks are replaced, All-at-thesame-time cleaning is performed.

*3: How to prepare and set the ASF sub-roller cleaning sheet:
1) Fold a sheet of plain paper lengthwise in half.
2-9
2) Fold the paper at approx. 60 mm from the end, and fold the folded end in half backward, as shown below.
3) Moisten the folded end portion (indicated by the blue circle in the figure below) using a wipe, and set the
paper in the ASF so that the moistened edge of the paper contacts the 2 sub-rollers. Then, fold the other end
of the paper along the ASF cover edge to hook the paper to the ASF cover, as shown below.
4) Press and hold the Resume/Cancel button until the Power LED blinks 3 times, then release the button to
perform the paper feed roller cleaning. See "Stand alone printer operation," for details. 2-10
* Occurrence level:
A: The symptom is likely to occur frequently. (Caution required)
B: The symptom may occur under certain conditions, but likeliness is assumed very low in practical usage.
C: The symptom is unlikely to be recognized by the user, and no practical issues are assumed.
