printer will return to normal operation only you cycle power for restarting this printer.
5.2 Calibration
CX400 unit had been calibrated at the factory for using with SATO standard ribbon and media. Other ribbon/media combinations
may or may not index properly with these settings. You might need to perform various calibrations to adapt the variance caused
by the particular Media & Ribbon.
5.2.1 To Calibrate Media Sensor
You might need to perform “Media Sensor Calibration” if Printer frequently skips a blank label, the variance for “Printing
position” in every label is too obvious, or the image on printed label is not located as what you set.
The Calibration for media sensor can be done by clicking the Calibration Buttons in the Label Wizard CX software or the
Windows Printer Driver. If it is not convenient for you to calibrate Media Sensor with those application software, this sensor
calibration also can be performed by directly sending “ Printer Commands for Media Sensor Calibration” to printer.
1. Install well the Media and Ribbon ( TT mode )
2. You can calibrate the Media Sensor with Application S/W.
SATO /ARGOX Technical Documentation

CX400 Technical Manual (Rev 1.00)
Or you are also able to directly send out a group of commands to printer for calibrating the media sensors in either Imark(Reflective )or Gap(See-Through ) mode. Two groups of commands for Bar & Gap mode sensor are listed below,
<In Reflective mode >
<ESC>A
<ESC >CI1
<ESC>CA
<ESC>Z
< In Gap mode >
<ESC>A
<ESC>CI2
<ESC>CA
<ESC>Z
3. Once the Media sensor calibration is activated in step 2, the printer will feed several labels ( 6 inches) to perform this
calibration. After this printer completely stops feeding label, this calibration had been well.
< note 1 > < ESC> = 0x1B,
< note 2 > The ribbon must be installed in the printer when calibrating in the thermal transfer mode.

5.2.2 Calibration for Ribbon Sensor
The calibration for Ribbon sensor might need to be performed while the particular Ribbon & Media you installed makes this
printer fails to detect ribbon out or the end of ribbon. Actually it is not necessary to perform this calibration except the installed
Ribbon & Media are very particular.
The calibration for ribbon sensor is used for the printer to keep the characteristics of ribbon sensor, ribbon and media. The printer
always checks the ribbon existence during printing under TT (thermal transfer) mode. Once the printer mis-detects the ribbon you
must make a ribbon calibration for them. Two steps are required to do it.
Step 1 è To Install both Ribbon and Media , then
1. Send a group of commands to the printer.
<ESC>A
<ESC>&I1
<ESC>Z
2. Wait for five seconds to make sure the printer to finish checking.
Step 2 è Remove the Ribbon and Install the Media,then
1. Send a group of commands to the printer.
<ESC>A
<ESC>&I0
<ESC>Z
2. Wait for five seconds to make sure the printer to finish checking.
After Step1&2 have been done the calibration ribbon sensor is completed.
<Note>You can also put the end-mark ribbon (in general it is in silver color) under the ribbon sensor (right under print
head) at step B.
5.2.3 Calibration for Dispenser Sensor
The calibration for dispensor sensor is used for the printer to keep the characteristics of dispensor sensor and media. The printer
checks the label existence after printing, when the printed label is removed the printer continues printing for the next label
automatically. Once the printer mis-detects the label you must make a calibration for them. Two steps are required to do it.
Step 1 è Putting a label on the plastic plain under the dispenser sensor, then
1. Send a group of commands to the printer.
<ESC>A
<ESC>&P1
<ESC>Z
2. Wait for five seconds to make sure the printer to finish checking.
Step 2 è Removing the label from the dispenser sensor, then
1. Send a group of commands to the printer.
<ESC>A
<ESC>&P0
<ESC>Z
2. Wait for five seconds to make sure the printer to finish checking.
After both above steps 1&2 have been done the calibration for dispenser is completed.

3. The binary file downloaded to CX400 for updating the F/W in corrupted case must be led with
the prefix commands. “Prefixed commands + binary data” can be sent to CX400 by entering “
Copy <prefix Commands file>+< Binary Data file> LPT1: “ in DOS prompt.
The syntax of Prefix is :
<Prefix >: 0x1B+0x24+0x33+"Start offset(1 byte)"+"Data Count(1 byte)"
"Start offset" èTo Define the Starting offset for programming the On-Board Flash ROM.
The actually Starting Offset is got by multiplying "Start offset(1 byte)"

The major Components in Main Controller are:
Micro-controller (U6)
SH7034 ( External 16 Bit & Internal 32 Bit in Data Bus) is based on Hitachi SH1 as its CPU Kernel and
integrated with lots of on-chip peripherals which are required to build a system like this Label Printer. These rich
on-chip Peripherals, Timer, DMA controller, Interrupt Controller, DRAM Controller, A/D convert , Serial
communication interface, Pattern generator and I/O ports make the Electrical H/W for this printer be compact and
high performance.

CX400 Technical Manual (Rev 1.00)
FLASH memory (U8,U9)
Two ”one M bytes FLASH ROM” ( SMD Type, Total size is 1 M x 16 bit )are put on the main board to store the
firmware, character and bar code fonts.
DRAM (U10)
An one M word EDO DRAM( 1 M x16 bits) is put on the Main Board. Normally the volatile data, like working
buffers and Parameters, are allocated here. The controlling signals for EDO DRAM are provided by the DRAM
controller built in SH-7034.
EEPROM (U7)
EEPROM is the memory device to save the parameters, which could be set by user and should be permanently
retained. The total size of EEPROM on board is 1024 bit ( 128Byte ).
RS232 Tranceiver (U4)
To convert the serial port signal to/from micro-controller to RS232 voltage level .
CENTRONICS interface (U13)
The data come from the Host (LPT Port On PC) are latched in U13(74374) then read out by the Micro-controller.
Output Ports (U11,15)
These output ports in U11& U15 are for controlling Motor, LED, Media Sensor, 24 V Relay and PE & Fault of
Centronic.
DC/DC converter (U20,L1,D2)
A regulator to convert 24 V DC to 5 V DC as the Vcc source for the most of components on main board.
Motor Driver (U16,17 )
These 2 ICs on U16,17 provide the mechanism to control and drive a bipolar stepping motor with chopper
control of the phase current. Stepping Motor can be smoothly and properly driven forward/backward rotation by
controlling “the Current levels & Driving Phase” in these 2 Driver IC.
Relay (RY2)
In order to prevent the Print Head from being damaged by the unknown state in Strobe, Data-In, Clock. … of Print
Head, when the printer is switched on , 24 V DC should be definitely disconnected from Print Head. RY2 provides
the mechanism to disconnect “24V” with Print Head during the transient period while power being on .
For printing. image, 24 V must be applied to Print Head by controlling this Relay.
Extension slot (JP11)
This slot is designate for the connection of all the optional extension modules.
Config. Jumper ( JP 7 )
System Configuration Jumper
Booter/Normal (JP5 )
If JP5 being set at “Normal” position, the program on the FLASH ROM(U8,U9) will be executed after power reset. On the
other hand, the Program on Expansion Board will be executed firstly after power on when JP5 being set at “BOOTER” position.
In case the program & data on Flash ROM (U8,U9 ) are corrupted completely( even the data in boot sector are corrupted too) ,
the program on expansion board can be executed by CPU to upgrade a new program into on-board Flash ROM while JP5
being “BOOTER” position.
Normally JP5should be set at NORMAL position to run the program fetched from On-Board Flash ROM.
