1. Precautions
1.3. ESD precautions
Certain semiconductor devices can be easily damaged by static electricity. Such components are commonly called
“Electrostatically Sensitive (ES) Devices” or ESDs. Examples of typical ESDs are: integrated circuits, some field effect
transistors, and semiconductor “chip” components. The techniques outlined below should be followed to help reduce the
incidence of component damage caused by static electricity.
CAUTION
Be sure no power is applied to the chassis or circuit, and observe all other safety precautions.
1) Immediately before handling a semiconductor component or semiconductor-equipped assembly, drain off any
electrostatic charge on your body by touching a known earth ground. Alternatively, employ a commercially available
wrist strap device, which should be removed for your personal safety reasons prior to applying power to the unit
under test.
2) After removing an electrical assembly equipped with ESDs, place the assembly on a conductive surface, such as
aluminum or copper foil, or conductive foam, to prevent electrostatic charge buildup in the vicinity of the assembly.
3) Use only a grounded tip soldering iron to solder or desolder ESDs.
4) Use only an “anti-static” solder removal device. Some solder removal devices not classified as “anti-static” can
generate electrical charges sufficient to damage ESDs.
5) Do not use Freon-propelled chemicals. When sprayed, these can generate electrical charges sufficient to damage ESDs.
6) Do not remove a replacement ESD from its protective packaging until immediately before installing it. Most
replacement ESDs are packaged with all leads shorted together by conductive foam, aluminum foil, or a comparable
conductive material.
7) Immediately before removing the protective shorting material from the leads of a replacement ESD, touch the protective
material to the chassis or circuit assembly into which the device will be installed.
8) Maintain continuous electrical contact between the ESD and the assembly into which it will be installed, until
completely plugged or soldered into the circuit.
9) Minimize bodily motions when handling unpackaged replacement ESDs. Normal motions, such as the brushing together
of clothing fabric and lifting one’s foot from a carpeted floor, can generate static electricity sufficient to damage an ESD.

2.2.6.1. Feeding
If feeding from a tray, the drive of the pickup roller is controlled by controlling the clutch. The on/off of the clutch is
controlled by controlling the general output port or the external output port. While paper moves, occurrence of Jam
is judged as below.
Item
Description
JAM 0
•
After picking up, paper does not reach the Feed Sensor within a predetermined time.
or
•
After picking up, if the feed sensor is not on, re-pick up will be initiated. After re-picking up, if the
feed sensor is not on after certain time, it is JAM 0
•
Even though the paper reaches to the feed sensor, the feed sensor does not detect the lead edge of
the paper.
•
After the leading edge of the paper passes the feed sensor, the trailing edge of the paper does not clear
the sensor the feed sensor after predetermined period of time.

2.2.6.2. Transfer
The charging voltage, developing voltage and the transfer voltage are controlled by PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). The
each output voltage is changeable due to the PWM duty. The transfer voltage admitted when the paper passes the transfer
roller is decided by environment conditions. The resistance value of the transfer roller is changed due to the surrounding
environment or the environment of the set, and the voltage value, which changes due to the environment, is changed through
the AD converter. The voltage value for impressing to the transfer roller is decided by the changed value.

2. Product Specifications and Description
2.2.6.3. Fusing
The temperature change of the heat roller’s surface is changed to the resistance value through the use of a thermistor. The
Main Board uses the resistance value of the Thermistor and converts it to a voltage value through the use of an AD
converter, the temperature is decided based on the voltage value read. The AC power is controlled by comparing the target
temperature to the value from the thermistor. If the value from the thermistor is out of controlling range while controlling
the fusing, the error stated in the below table occurs.
• Open Heat Error
When the engine operates the warm-up process, if the temperature of the fixing unit is not higher than a specified
temperature within a predetermined time, the engine defines Open Heat Error. When this error is detected, the engine
stops all functions and keeps the error state. Also, the engine informs the error status of the main system, so it can take
appropriate action; and then the error message is displayed at LCD window or LED informing the error status of the user.
• Low Heat Error
When the engine is at stand-by, printing or warm-up mode, if the temperature of the fixing unit is lower than the
specified temperature at each state and the lower temperature state is maintained during the specified time, the engine
defines Low Heat Error. When this error is detected, the engine stops all functions and keeps it at the error state. Also,
the engine informs the error status of the main system, so it can take appropriate action; and then the error message
is displayed at LCD window or LED informing the error status of the user.
• Over Heat Error
For overall engine state, if the temperature of the fixing unit is higher than the specified temperature and the temperature
state is detected for a specific duration, then the engine defines Over Heat Error. When this error is detected, the engine
stops all functions and keeps it at the error state. Also, the engine informs the error status of the main system, so it
can take appropriate action; and then the error message is displayed at LCD window or LED informing the error
status of the user.
2.2.6.4. LSU
LSU receives the image data from PVC or HPVC and make the latent image on OPC surface. It uses the single beam,
LD. The errors related to LSU are as follows:
• By Lready
When the printing is started, the engine drives the polygon motor of LSU. After the specified time is elapsed, if the
motor is not in a ready status, the engine detects the error that the polygon motor is not in a ready status. If this error
happens, the engine stops all functions and keeps it at the error state. Also, the engine informs the error status of the
main system and the error message is displayed at LCD window or LED informing the error status of the user.
• By Hsync
When the polygon motor is ready, the LSU sends out the signal called Hsync and used to synchronize with each image
line. So, if the engine does not detect consecutively the signal for a fixed time, it defines the Hsync Error. If this error
happens, the engine stops all functions and keeps it at the error state. Also, the engine informs the error status of the
main system and then the error message is displayed at LCD window or LED informing the error status of the user. LSU
Error Recovery: If the LReady or Hsync error happens, the paper is exited before the error code is initiated. The engine
mode is changed to recovery mode and the engine informs the main system of the engine mode. The engine rechecks
the LSU error, if the error does not reoccur printing is resumed.

6.2. Glossary
The following glossary helps you get familiar with the product by understanding the terminologies commonly used with
printing as well as mentioned in this user’s guide and service manual.
802.11
802.11 is a set of standards for wireless local area network (WLAN) communication, developed by
the IEEE LAN/MAN Standards Committee (IEEE 802).
802.11b/g/n
802.11b/g/n can share same hardware and use the 2.4 GHz band. 802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11
Mbps, 802.11n supports bandwidth up to 150 Mbps. 802.11b/g/n devices may occasionally suffer
interference from microwave ovens, cordless telephones, and Bluetooth devices.
Access point
Access Point or Wireless Access Point (AP or WAP) is a device that connects wireless communication
devices together on wireless local area networks (WLAN), and acts as a central transmitter and
receiver of WLAN radio signals.
ADF
An Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) is a scanning unit that will automatically feed an original
sheet of paper so that the machine can scan some amount of the paper at once.
AppleTalk
AppleTalk is a proprietary suite of protocols developed by Apple, Inc for computer networking. It
was included in the original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP
networking.
BIT Depth
A computer graphics term describing the number of bits used to represent the color of a single pixel in
a bitmapped image. Higher color depth gives a broader range of distinct colors. As the number of bits
increases, the number of possible colors becomes impractically large for a color map. 1-bit color is
commonly called as monochrome or black and white.
BMP
A bitmapped graphics format used internally by the Microsoft Windows graphics subsystem (GDI),
and used commonly as a simple graphics file format on that platform.
BOOTP
Bootstrap Protocol. A network protocol used by a network client to obtain its IP address automatically.
This is usually done in the bootstrap process of computers or operating systems running on them. The
BOOTP servers assign the IP address from a pool of addresses to each client. BOOTP enables 'diskless
workstation' computers to obtain an IP address prior to loading any advanced operating system.
CCD
Charge Coupled Device (CCD) is a hardware which enables the scan job. CCD Locking mechanism is
also used to hold the CCD module to prevent any damage when you move the machine.
Collation
Collation is a process of printing a multiple-copy job in sets. When collation is selected, the device
prints an entire set before printing additional copies.
Control Panel
A control panel is a flat, typically vertical, area where control or monitoring instruments are displayed.
They are typically found in front of the machine.
Coverage
It is the printing term used for a toner usage measurement on printing. For example, 5% coverage
means that an A4 sided paper has about 5% image or text on it. So, if the paper or original has
complicated images or lots of text on it, the coverage will be higher and at the same time, a toner
usage will be as much as the coverage.
CSV
Comma Separated Values (CSV). A type of file format, CSV is used to exchange data between
disparate applications. The file format, as it is used in Microsoft Excel, has become a de facto standard
throughout the industry, even among non-Microsoft platforms.
DADF
A Duplex Automatic Document Feeder (DADF) is a scanning unit that will automatically feed and
turn over an original sheet of paper so that the machine can scan on both sides of the paper.
Default
The value or setting that is in effect when taking a printer out of its box state, reset, or initialized.
DHCP
A Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a client-server networking protocol. A DHCP
server provides configuration parameters specific to the DHCP client host requesting, generally,
information required by the client host to participate on an IP network. DHCP also provides a
mechanism for allocation of IP addresses to client hosts.
DIMM
Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM), a small circuit board that holds memory. DIMM stores all
the data within the machine like printing data, received fax data.

share information with each other across the network.
DNS
The Domain Name Server (DNS) is a system that stores information associated with domain names in
a distributed database on networks, such as the Internet.
Dot Matrix Printer
A dot matrix printer refers to a type of computer printer with a print head that runs back and forth
on the page and prints by impact, striking an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like a
typewriter.
DPI
Dots Per Inch (DPI) is a measurement of resolution that is used for scanning and printing. Generally,
higher DPI results in a higher resolution, more visible detail in the image, and a larger file size.
DRPD
Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection. Distinctive Ring is a telephone company service which enables a
user to use a single telephone line to answer several different telephone numbers.
Duplex
A mechanism that will automatically turn over a sheet of paper so that the machine can print (or
scan) on both sides of the paper. A printer equipped with a Duplex Unit can print on both sides of
paper during one print cycle.
Duty Cycle
Duty cycle is the page quantity which does not affect printer performance for a month. Generally the
printer has the lifespan limitation such as pages per year. The lifespan means the average capacity
of print-outs, usually within the warranty period. For example, if the duty cycle is 48,000 pages per
month assuming 20 working days, a printer limits 2,400 pages a day.
ECM
Error Correction Mode (ECM) is an optional transmission mode built into Class 1 fax machines
or fax modems. It automatically detects and corrects errors in the fax transmission process that
are sometimes caused by telephone line noise.
Emulation
Emulation is a technique of one machine obtaining the same results as another. An emulator
duplicates the functions of one system with a different system, so that the second system behaves like
the first system. Emulation focuses on exact reproduction of external behavior, which is in contrast
to simulation, which concerns an abstract model of the system being simulated, often considering
its internal state.
Ethernet
Ethernet is a frame-based computer networking technology for local area networks (LANs). It defines
wiring and signaling for the physical layer, and frame formats and protocols for the media access
control (MAC)/data link layer of the OSI model. Ethernet is mostly standardized as IEEE 802.3. It
has become the most widespread LAN technology in use during the 1990s to the present.
EtherTalk
A suite of protocols developed by Apple Computer for computer networking. It was included in the
original Macintosh (1984) and is now deprecated by Apple in favor of TCP/IP networking.
FDI
Foreign Device Interface (FDI) is a card installed inside the machine to allow a third party device
such as a coin operated device or a card reader. Those devices allow the pay-for-print service
on your machine.
FTP
A File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a commonly used protocol for exchanging files over any network
that supports the TCP/IP protocol (such as the Internet or an intranet).
Fuser Unit
The part of a laser printer that fuses the toner onto the print media. It consists of a heat roller and
a pressure roller. After toner is transferred onto the paper, the fuser unit applies heat and pressure
to ensure that the toner stays on the paper permanently, which is why paper is warm when it comes
out of a laser printer.
Gateway
A connection between computer networks, or between a computer network and a telephone line. It is
very popular, as it is a computer or a network that allows access to another computer or network.
Grayscale
A shades of gray that represent light and dark portions of an image when color images are converted
to grayscale; colors are represented by various shades of gray.
Halftone
An image type that simulates grayscale by varying the number of dots. Highly colored areas consist of
a large number of dots, while lighter areas consist of a smaller number of dots.
HDD
Hard Disk Drive (HDD), commonly referred to as a hard drive or hard disk, is a non-volatile storage
device which stores digitally-encoded data on rapidly rotating platters with magnetic surfaces.
