GENERAL
FEATURES
A.
This high-speed, non-impact (low-noise) printer is based on electrophotography, electronics
and laser technology.
B.
The printer is compact and easy to carry. The internally-storable, front-loading paper
cassette enables you to save an occupation space for the machine; the printer can now
be installed in a smaller place.
C.
The charging roller, developing cylinder, photosensitive drum and cleaner of the printer
are combined into a single assembly called an ”EP-ED cartridge”. The cartridge can be
replaced by the user when necessary without a need of service call. High printing quality
is maintained by a simple cleaning procedure.
D.
Laser beam safety is designed into the printer. The printer is approved by the US Center
for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH).
E.
Paper can be fed in two ways, by the multi-purpose paper feed tray and paper cassette.
F.
Maintenance is easy with print component units which are directly detachable, and they
require no adjustment after reassembly.

SAFETY INFORMATION
3.1 Laser Safety (110 ~ 120V Model only)
This printer is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the US Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation
Control for Health and Safety Act of 1968. This means that the printer does not produce
hazardous laser radiation,
Since radiation emitted inside the printer is completely confined within the protective
housings and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any
phase of user operation.
I-6
3.2 CDRH Regulations (110 ~ 120V Model only)
The center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the US Food and Drug
Administration implemented regulations for laser products on August 2, 1976. These
regulations apply to laser products manufactured from August 1, 1976. Compliance is
mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The label shown below indicates
compliance with the CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed in
the United States.
MANUFACTURED :
BROTHER INDUSTRIES, LTD.
15-1, Naeshiro-cho, Mizuho-ku Nagoya 467, Japan.
This product complies with FDA radiation
performance standards , 21 CFR chapter 1
subchapter J.
Figure 1.2
Caution: Use of controls, adjustments or performance of procedures other than those
specified in this manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
3.3 Additional Information
When servicing or adjusting the optical system of the printer, be careful not to place
screwdrivers or other reflective objects in the path of the laser beam. Be sure to take off any
personal accessories such as watches and rings before working on the printer. A reflected
beam, though invisible, can permanently damage the eyes.
Since the beam is invisible, the following label is attached to the inside of covers where
danger of exposure to laser radiation exist.

STORAGE AND HANDLING OF EP-ED CARTRIDGES
An EP-ED cartridge is influenced by the storage conditions even if it is sealed in its package,
so its life depends on the way in which it is used or stored. EP-ED cartridges should be
handled carefully.
5.1 Storage of Sealed EP-ED Cartridges
When storing sealed EP-ED cartridges in a warehouse or workshop, the storage conditions
shown in (25) Environmental conditions on Page 1-5 must be met. Follow the instructions
below:
1) Avoid direct sunlight.
2) Do not store cartridges on a surface that is subject to vibration.
3) Do not hit or drop the packages containing cartridges.
4) The cartridges should be stored horizontal when they are removed from the body (with
their label side upside).
5) Avoid putting the cartridges near a CRT screen, a disk or a floppy disk (to keep their data
from being destroyed).
5.2 Storage of Unsealed EP-ED Cartridges
Each EP-ED cartridge contains a photosensitive drum that has an organic photoconductor
(OPC) which deteriorates when exposed to strong light. It also contains toner. The user,
therefore, should be fully informed about the correct storage and handling of EP-ED
cartridges.
(1)
(2)
Storage requirements
1)
Avoid places exposed to direct sunlight or near a window. Do not leave an EP-ED
cartridge in a car in warm or hot weather even if it is in its storage box.
2)
Avoid places with a too-high or too-cool temperature and/or humidity. Also avoid
places exposed to sudden temperature or humidity changes (such as near an air
conditioner outlet).
3)
Avoid dusty places or places exposed to ammonia fumes or other harmful fumes.
4)
Do not store an EP-ED cartridge in a temperature above 40°C.
EP-ED cartridge life
The effective life of an EP-ED cartridge is 2.5 years from the date of manufacture
(printed on the cartridge.) The expiry year and month (date of manufacture plus 2.5
years) is shown on the EP-ED cartridge box. An EP-ED cartridge used after the expiry
may produce low-quality printing, so a cartridge should be used within the stated
period.

THEORY OF OPERATION
This chapter describes the printer functions, the relationship between the electrical systems and
mechanical systems, and the timing of operations. Striped conduits (
) indicate mechanical
linkages; solid thin arrows (
) appearing with a signal name indicate the transmission of
single control signals and outlined thick arrows (
) indicate the transmission of groups of
signals.

The power necessary for driving the printer is supplied by the main motor, the paper feed motor
and the scanner motor.
The main motor is controlled by the main motor drive signal (MDRIVE) output from the main
PCB, and the paper feed motor is controlled by the paper feed motor drive signal output from
the main PCB, and the scanner motor is controlled by the scanner motor drive signal (SDRIVE)
output from the main PCB.

In response to the print signal transmitted from the external device, the main PCB generates the
drive signals (DATA,VOFF) for the laser diode and sends the signals to the scanner unit.
The laser diode in the scanner unit generates a laser beam modulated by DATA.
The modulated laser beam is aligned into a parallel beam by a collimator lens and a cylindrical
lens and then brought to the scanning mirror which is rotating at a constant speed.
The laser beam reflected by the scanning mirror focuses on the photosensitive drum via the
focusing lenses arranged in front of the scanning mirror.
The path of the beam coming through the focusing lenses is reflected by the reflective mirror.
As the scanning mirror rotates at a constant speed, the laser beam scans the photosensitive
drum at a constant speed.
As the photosensitive drum rotates at a constant speed and the laser beam scans the drum, an
images is formed on the drum.

3. IMAGE FORMATION SYSTEM
3.1 Outline
The image formation system is the main part of the printer. The print information, after input from
the video controller circuit into the engine controller circuit as a TVDO signal, forms a toner image
on the photosensitive drum.
Then the toner image is transferred onto the paper by the transfer charging roller. The image
formation system is composed of the photosensitive drum the charging unit, the developing unit
and the cleaning unit.
3.2 Printing Process
The major part of the image formation system is contained in the cartridge, as shown in Figure
2.5.

Electrostatic latent image formation stage
This stage has two steps, which together produce a pattern of electrical charges on the
photosensitive drum.
At the end of the stage, negative charges remain in the unexposed ”dark” area. Charges are
absent from the ”light” areas, where the laser beam struck (exposed) the drum surface.
Since this image of negative charges on the drum is invisible to the eye, it is called an
”electrostatic latent image”.

AC bias

DC bias
Figure 2.9
As preparation for latent image formation, a uniform negative potential is applied to the
photosensitive drum surface. The printer uses the charging method that directly charges the
drum for the primary charge.
The primary charging roller consists of conductive rubber. In addition to DC bias, AC bias is
applied to the primary charging roller to keep the potential on the drum surface uniform. This DC
bias is changed with the developing DC bias.
This charging method has advantages such as lower applied voltage, less ozone generation,
etc., compared with the corona charge system.

When the laser beam scans the drum surface, it causes the charge to be neutralized in the areas

3.2.2
Developing stage
Development places particles of toner onto the areas of the drum that have been cleared of
charge by the laser beam. This makes a visible image. This printer uses the toner projection
development method with a single-component toner.

Note: The charges on the light areas on the photosensitive drum are shown as positive in this
figure. Actually they are negative, but they are more positive than the developing
cylinder and explanation is simplified by regarding them as positive.
As shown in Figure 2.11, the developing unit consists of a developing cylinder and rubber blade.
The developing cylinder rotates around a fixed internal magnet. The single-component toner
consists of magnetite and a resin binder, and is held to the cylinder by magnetic attraction. The
toner is an insulator, and acquires a negative charge by friction due to the rotation of the cylinder.
The areas on the drum that were exposed to the laser beam have a higher potential (are less
negative) than the negatively charged toner particles on the developing cylinder. When these
areas approach the cylinder, the potential difference projects the toner particles onto them. This
is called toner projection, and the latent image on the drum becomes visible.

An AC bias is applied to the developing cylinder to help project the toner particles to the drum
surface and improve the contrast of the printed image. The center voltage of the AC bias (1600
Vp-p) varies with the DC bias voltage.
The IMAGE DENSITY ADJUSTMENT signal (sent from the Engine CPU to the high-voltage
power supply) changes the DC bias, and thus the potential difference between the cylinder and
drum. This changes the density of the print.
This printer has a stirring mechanism to supply toner in the cartridge smoothly to the cylinder.

Transfer stage
In the transfer stage, the toner image is transferred from the drum surface to the paper.
Step 4
Transfer
Photosensitive
drum
Paper
Transfer charging roller
Figure 2.13
A positive charge applied to the back of the paper attracts the negatively charged toner particles
to the paper. The printer accomplishes transfer by using the charging roller method. Advantages
compared with the corona transfer method are as follows:
•
Low transfer voltage that is less than half that for corona transfer.
•
Less ozone generation.
•
The paper is supported by the transfer charging roller and photosensitive drum, so feed is
more stable.
Reference:
If the image on the photosensitive drum is not completely transferred to the paper due to
jamming, etc., the toner may adhere to the transfer charging roller. The printer removes the toner
from the transfer charging roller by switching the transfer voltage between positive and negative
in sequence. During wait, initial rotation, and last rotation, the printer sets the primary DC voltage
to zero, and sets the charge on the drum to zero. In this case, the transfer voltage is made
negative to remove the negatively-charged toner on the transfer charging roller to the drum. The
transfer charging roller is thus cleaned.

To stabilize the paper feed and prevent small white circles from appearing in the printed image
at low temperature and humidity, the charge on the back of the paper is reduced by the static
charge eliminator after transfer.

3.2.4
Fixing stage
The toner image transferred to the paper in the transfer stage is held only by electrostatic
attraction and slight physical adhesion, so even a light touch will smear the image.
In the fixing stage, the toner image is fixed by heating the paper and applying pressure. This
fuses the toner particles to the paper to make a permanent image.

The upper roller surface is PFA-coated. The upper and lower roller surfaces are grounded via
a diode to prevent the negative potential of the upper roller becoming higher than that of the
lower roller, resulting in the toner being drawn to the lower roller, and adhering to the lower roller
surface.
3.2.5
Drum cleaning stage
In the transfer stage, not all the toner is transferred to the paper. Some remains on the
photosensitive drum. This residual toner is cleaned off in the drum cleaning stage so that the
next print image will be clear.

3.3 Operation
When the engine controller circuit receives a print signal (PRINT) or a pre-feed signal (PRFD)
from the video controller circuit, the engine controller circuit drives the main motor to rotate the
photosensitive drum.
After the drum surface is charged negatively by the primary charge roller, the laser beam
modulated by a DATA signal scans the drum surface to from a latent image on the drum.
The latent image formed on the drum surface is converted into a visible image by the toner on
the developing cylinder and then image is transferred onto the paper by the transfer roller unit.
Then the residual toner is removed from the drum surface with the cleaner blade.
The cartridge also has a toner sensor. When the output from this sensor falls below a certain
level, it warns that the EP-ED cartridge will be out of toner with an alarm.

4. PAPER PICK-UP/FEED SYSTEM
4.1 Outline
If a tray1 paper pick-up roller solenoid drive signal (PUCL1) is input to the circuit while the paper
feed motor is rotating, the paper pick-up solenoid comes on and the paper pick-up roller solenoid
is engaged. As a result, the paper pick-up roller rotates to feed paper down to the photosensitive
drum.

The paper position is controlled by the registration sensor so that the leading edge of the paper
is aligned with the leading edge of the image on the photosensitive drum. After this operation,
the paper is deliveried to the face down tray via the fixing unit. Paper ejection is detected by the
paper ejection sensor; if printed paper has not reached or not cleared the paper ejection sensor
in a specified time, the printer judges that a paper jam has occurred. In this case a paper jam
is noticed to the external devise by a status signal.
4.2 Cassette Feed
When the fixing rollers reach the specified temperature while a cassette with paper is in the
printer, the READY lamp changes from flashing to lighting.
When the engine controller circuit receives PRNT or PRFD signal from the video controller
circuit, the paper feed motor starts rotation. About 0.2 seconds later, the printer actuates the
tray1 pick-up roller solenoid and the pick-up roller makes one rotation. This feeds paper to the
photosensitive drum.

4.4 Paper Jam Detection
The printer has a registration sensor and a paper eject sensor at the paper outlet to detect
whether the printed paper has been fed correctly. A paper jam is detected by whether the paper
is present at the sensor at the check periods programmed in the engine CPU memory. If the
engine CPU detects a paper jam, the main motor, paper feed motor and scanner motor is turned
off immediately and the jam status is transmitted to the video controller circuit.
A paper jam is detected in any of following conditions:
1)
Paper exists at the paper ejection sensor or the registration sensor when power is
switched on. (JAM REAR or JAM INSIDE)
2)
Paper has not reached the registration sensor within a specified time (JAM TRAYS).
3)
Printed paper has not passed through the registration sensor within a specified time (JAM
INSIDE (1) ).
4)
Printed paper has not reached the paper ejection sensor within a specified time (JAM
INSIDE (2) ).
5)
Printed paper has not passed through the paper ejection sensor within a specified time
(JAM REAR).

CHAPTER III ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Electric signal levels are expressed by ”High” (approximate the supply voltage) or ”Low”
(approximate 0V). Signals with hyphen or slash, such as -FSRD or FSRD/, are low-active and
signals without hyphen or slash, such as FSRD, are high-active signals.

LOW-VOLTAGE POWER SUPPLY ASSY
4.1 Outline
The low-voltage power supply assy consists of the low-voltage generating block (hereinafter the
DC block) and the heater drive circuit block to turn the heater on (hereinafter the AC block).
When the power switch (SW1) is turned on, AC power is supplied to the low-voltage power supply
assy.
The DC block generates +5 VDC, and +24 VDC.
When the heater is turned on, AC power is supplied to the AC block under control of the heater
on-off signal from the engine controller.
+24V output is reserved in the DC block, for the cooling fan for the low-voltage power supply
assy.
4.2 Protection Functions
Each of the power supply circuits, +5V, and +24V, has a protection function to prevent the circuit
from accident by automatically cutting off the power supply in the case of a over-voltage or overcurrent of the load.
When the cooling fan stops to rotating, an over-voltage protection or a short-circuit protection
function is activated, and all the DC power supplies are cutoff.
In this case check and clear the cause on the load after turning the power switch (SW1) off, and
then switch the power on again at least one minute after the power shut-down.

HIGH-VOLTAGE POWER SUPPLY ASSY
5.1 Outline
The High-Voltage Power Supply Assy supplies the high-voltage for the charging roller, the
developer cylinder and the transfer roller according to the engine CPU’s control signals.
The block diagrams are shown Fig 3.10 and 3.11.
5.2 Operation of the Components of the High-Voltage Power Supply Assy
(1) Primary charging
When input signal/HV1AC gets the Low level, the primary high-voltage AC is applied to the
primary charging roller. And when input signal/HV1DC gets the Low level, the primary highvoltage DC is applied to the primary charging roller. The primary high-voltage DC changes with
developer bias DC according to values of the input signal DNSTY which is for print density
adjustment.
(2) Developer bias
When input signal/DBAC gets the Low level, the developer bias AC is applied to the developer
cylinder. And when input signal/DBDC gets the Low level, the developer bias DC is applied to
the developer cylinder. The developer bias DC changes according to values of the input signal
DNSTY which is for print density adjustment, like the primary high-voltage DC.
(3) Transfer charging
Transfer bias is controlled by the input signals HVT1 - 4 and HVTFB. When the input signal/
HVT1 gets the Low level, negative high-voltage is applied to the transfer roller. When the input
signal/HVT2 gets the Low level, positive high-voltage is applied to the transfer roller. When the
input signal/HVT3 gets the Low level, positive high-voltage about 1100 times that of the input
signal HVT4 is applied to the transfer roller. The input signal HVTFB has voltage about 1/1100
times the positive voltage generated on the transfer roller. Once the engine CPU is informed of
this voltage, the bias applied to the transfer roller can be known.
Note: The HVT2 signal generates high-voltage irrespective of the HVT4 signal.
(4) Toner sensing
Voltage levels of the input signals TONER1 and TONER2 allow the engine CPU to check if the
cartridge is set or not and if toner is empty. The TONER1 carries the voltage generated at the
toner sensor and the TONER2 carries the developing bias output value.

CHAPTER IV MECHANICAL SYSTEM
Safety Precautions
To prevent the creation of secondary problems by mishandling, observe the following precautions during maintenance work.
(1)
Always turn off the power before replacing parts or units. When having access to the power
supply, be sure to unplug the power cord form the power outlet.
(2)
Be careful not to lose screws, washers, or other parts removed for parts replacement.
(3)
Be sure to apply grease to the teeth of gears.
(4)
When using soldering irons and other heat-generating tools, take care not to damage the
resin parts such as wires, PCBs, and covers.
(5)
Before handling the PCBs, touch a metal portion of the equipment to discharge static
electricity, or the electronic parts may be damaged due to the electricity charged in your
body.
(6)
When transporting PCBs, be sure to wrap them in conductive sheets such as aluminum
foil.
(7)
Be sure to reinsert self-tapping screws correctly, if removed.
(8)
Unless otherwise specified, tighten screws to the torque values listed below.

(9)
When connecting or disconnecting cable connectors, hold the connector bodies not the
cables. If the connector has a lock, always slide the connector lock to unlock it.
(10) After repairs, check not only the repaired portion but also that the connectors and other
related portions function properly before operation checks.
Notes
• On the next page is a disassembly order flow which helps you access the object

CHAPTER VI TROUBLESHOOTING
1.
INTRODUCTION
1.1 Initial Check
(1) Operating environment
Check if:
1)
The source voltage stays within ±10% from the rating voltage shown on the rating
label.
2)
The printer is installed on a solid, level surface.
3)
The room temperature is maintained between 10°C and 32.5°C. The relative humidity
is maintained between 20% and 80%.
4)
The printer is not exposed to ammonia fumes or other harmful gases.
5)
The printer is not located in a hot or humid area (such as near water or a humidifier), in
a cold place (such as outlet of an air conditioner), near open flames or in a dusty place.
6)
The printer is not exposed to direct sunlight.
7)
The room is well-ventilated.
(2) Printer paper
Check if:
1)
A recommended type of print paper is being used (if the paper is too thick or too thin,
or tends to curl, paper jams or paper feed problems may occur, or prints may be
blurred).
2)
The print paper is damped. [If so, use fresh paper, and check whether the print quality
improve or not.]
(3) Consumables
Check if:
1)
The message "16 TONER EMPTY" is not shown on the status display when a
cartridge is installed in the printer . [If the message is displayed, replace the cartridge
with a new one. If blank spots occur on prints, take out the EP-ED cartridge and slowly
rock it to distribute the toner evenly.]
(4) Others
Check if:
The transfer guide and feed guide are clean. [If not, clean them with a damp cloth.]
Condensation:
When the printer is moved from a cold room into a warm room in cold weather,
condensation may occur inside the printer, causing various problems as below:
1)
Condensation on the optical surfaces such as the scanning mirror, lenses, the reflection
mirror and the protection glass may cause the print image to be light.
2)
If the photosensitive drum is cold, the electrical resistance of the photosensitive layer
gets high, making it impossible to obtain a correct contrast in printing.
3)
Condensation on the pick-up guide and feed guide plates may cause paper feed
troubles.
If condensation has occurred, wipe the effected units or parts with a dry cloth.
If an EP-ED cartridge is unsealed soon after moved from a cold room to a warm room,
condensation may occur inside the cartridge, which may cause incorrect image. Instruct the
user to allow the cartridge to come to room temperature before unsealing it. This will take
one to two hours.

SAFETY INFORMATION
3.1 Laser Safety (110 ~ 120V Model only)
This printer is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the US Department of Health and
Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according to the Radiation Control for
Health and Safety Act of 1968. This means that the printer does not produce hazardous laser
radiation,
Since radiation emitted inside the printer is completely confined within the protective housings
and external covers, the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase of user
operation.
3.2 CDRH Regulations (110 ~ 120V Model only)
The center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the US Food and Drug
Administration implemented regulations for laser products on August 2, 1976. These
regulations apply to laser products manufactured from August 1, 1976. Compliance is
mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The label shown below indicates
compliance with the CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed in
the United States.
MANUFACTURED :
BROTHER INDUSTRIES, LTD.
15-1, Naeshiro-cho, Mizuho-ku Nagoya 467, Japan.
This product complies with FDA radiation
performance standards , 21 CFR chapter 1
subchapter J.
Figure 1.2
Caution: Use of controls, adjustments or performance of procedures other than those
specified in this manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
I-6
3.3 Additional Information
When servicing or adjusting the optical system of the printer, be careful not to place
screwdrivers or other reflective objects in the path of the laser beam. Be sure to take off any
personal accessories such as watches and rings before working on the printer. A reflected
beam, though invisible, can permanently damage the eyes.
Since the beam is invisible, the following label is attached to the inside of covers where
danger of exposure to laser radiation exist.

4. PAPER PICK-UP/FEED SYSTEM
4.2 Cassette Feed
When the fixing rollers reach the specified temperature while a cassette with paper is in the
printer, the READY lamp changes from flashing to lighting.
When the engine controller circuit receives PRNT or PRFD signal from the video controller
circuit, the paper feed motor starts rotation. About 0.2 seconds later, the printer actuates the
tray1 pick-up roller solenoid and the pick-up roller makes one rotation. This feeds paper to the
photosensitive drum.

4.4 Paper Jam Detection
The printer has a registration sensor and a paper eject sensor at the paper outlet to detect
whether the printed paper has been fed correctly. A paper jam is detected by whether the paper
is present at the sensor at the check periods programmed in the engine CPU memory. If the
engine CPU detects a paper jam, the main motor, paper feed motor and scanner motor is turned
off immediately and the jam status is transmitted to the video controller circuit.
A paper jam is detected in any of following conditions:
1)
Paper exists at the paper ejection sensor or the registration sensor when power is
switched on. (JAM REAR or JAM INSIDE)
2)
Paper has not reached the registration sensor within a specified time (JAM TRAYS).
3)
Printed paper has not passed through the registration sensor within a specified time (JAM
INSIDE (1) ).
4)
Printed paper has not reached the paper ejection sensor within a specified time (JAM
INSIDE (2) ).
5)
Printed paper has not passed through the paper ejection sensor within a specified time
(JAM REAR).

CHAPTER III ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Electric signal levels are expressed by ”High” (approximate the supply voltage) or ”Low”
(approximate 0V). Signals with hyphen or slash, such as -FSRD or FSRD/, are low-active and
signals without hyphen or slash, such as FSRD, are high-active signals.

MAIN PCB
1.1 Outline
The Main PCB consists of the Video Controller Circuit and the Engine Controller Circuit.
The Video Controller Circuit performs the following functions.
(1)
Converts data received from an external device, such as a personal computer, through
Centronics parallel interface or RS-232C serial interface into video data and transfers it
to the Engine controller circuit.
(2)
Displays the current printer status in LED and LCD, and enables settings from the control
panel.
The operation sequence of the printer controlled by a microprocessor in the Engine Controller
Circuit. The Engine Controller Circuit outputs signals to drive the various loads on the laser
diode, scanner motor, main motor, etc. according to the print commands and image data from
the external device.

(2) ASIC/Gate Array Block
•
HG51CS265FD (Hitachi) - 208-pin QFP
Controls the address decoder, timers, interfaces (Centronics and RS-232C),HRC and GSC.
•
µPD65632GC (NEC) - 100-pin QFP
Controls the I/O ports and others.
(3) Font Cartridge/Card Block
•
Font cartridge (option)
The font cartridge has a 64MB memory area and is controlled by the 16-bit bus.
The address bus a buffer LS244 and the data bus, a buffer LS245.
•
Font Card (option)
The font card has a 64MB memory area and is controlled by the 16-bit bus.
The card is supplied with 12V power because the flash card requires 12V power supply when
writing or erasing data.
The address bus is buffered by LS244 and the data bus, is buffered by LS245.
(4) Centronics/RS-232C interface block
•
Centronics parallel interface
Data transmission and reception are controlled by the HG51CS265FD .
•
RS-232C
Data transmission and reception are controlled by the HG51CS265FD .
The ADM202JRN serves as driver/receiver.
(5) SIMM block
•
SIMM (Single-Inline-Memory-Module) allows memory extension up to 66MB
•
2 SIMM sockets are available.
•
SIMM should be of 72-pin type and its access time should be less than 80 ns.
•
6 types of SIMM (1MB, 2MB, 4MB, 8MB,16MB and 32MB) can be combined:
1MB MH25632BJ-7 (MITSUBISHI), HB56D25632B-7A (HITACHI)
2MB MH51232BJ-7 (MITSUBISHI), HB56D51232B-7A (HITACHI)
4MB MH1M32EJ-7 (MITSUBISHI), HB56A132BT-7A (HITACHI)
8MB MH2M32EJ-7 (MITSUBISHI), HB56A232BT-7A (HITACHI)
16MB THM324000BSG-70 (TOSHIBA)
32MB THM328020BSG-70 (TOSHIBA)
1)
The SIMMs have its printed marking on the PCB by silk screen: SLOT1, and
SLOT2, respectively. The SIMMs should be set in the order of SLOT1 - SLOT2.
2)
SIMMs should be set in the order of its memory size and in the order of SLOT No.
Example: 2 SIMMs: 1MB, and 4MB
SLOT1 - 4MB
SLOT2 - 1MB
III - 2
3)
The attached Printer SIMM map shows the memory map for 2 SIMMs combined.
(6) ROM block
ROMs store the CPU control program and font data. ROMs are two 16Mbit masked ROMs and
two 8Mbit masked ROMs.
Optional sockets are available for two 8Mbit EPROM (µPD27C8000DZ-120 - NEC or equivalent) for expansion.
ROM access time should be less than 120nsec.
8Mbit EPROMs can be used instead of a 16Mbit masked ROM.
(7) DRAM block
DRAMs are used for receiving buffer or working area of the CPU. The DRAM block contains
four 4Mbit DRAMs, thus having 2MB memory capacity in total.
The refreshing method is CBR (Cas Before Ras).
DRAM access time should be less than 80nsec.

CHAPTER IV MECHANICAL SYSTEM
Safety Precautions
To prevent the creation of secondary problems by mishandling, observe the following precautions during maintenance work.
(1)
Always turn off the power before replacing parts or units. When having access to the power
supply, be sure to unplug the power cord form the power outlet.
(2)
Be careful not to lose screws, washers, or other parts removed for parts replacement.
(3)
Be sure to apply grease to the teeth of gears.
(4)
When using soldering irons and other heat-generating tools, take care not to damage the
resin parts such as wires, PCBs, and covers.
(5)
Before handling the PCBs, touch a metal portion of the equipment to discharge static
electricity, or the electronic parts may be damaged due to the electricity charged in your
body.
(6)
When transporting PCBs, be sure to wrap them in conductive sheets such as aluminum
foil.
(7)
Be sure to reinsert self-tapping screws correctly, if removed.
(8)
Unless otherwise specified, tighten screws to the torque values listed below.

(9)
When connecting or disconnecting cable connectors, hold the connector bodies not the
cables. If the connector has a lock, always slide the connector lock to unlock it.
(10) After repairs, check not only the repaired portion but also that the connectors and other
related portions function properly before operation checks.
Notes
• On the next page is a disassembly order flow which helps you access the object
component.
• Unless otherwise specified, the disassembled parts or components should be
reassembled in the reverse order of removal.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: REGULATIONS
Federal Communications Commission Compliance Notice
(For U.S.A. only)
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a
Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful
interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses,
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in
accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio
communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will
not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful
interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by
turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct
the interference by one or more of the following measures:
– Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.

For Your Safety
To ensure safe operation the three-pin plug supplied must be inserted
only into a standard three-pin power point which is effectively grounded
through the normal household wiring.
Extension cords used with the equipment must be three-conductor and be
correctly wired to provide connection to ground. Incorrectly wired
extension cords are a major cause of fatalities.
The fact that the equipment operates satisfactorily does not imply that the
power is grounded and that the installation is completely safe. For your
safety, if in any doubt about the effective grounding of the power, consult
a qualified electrician.
Wiring Information (For U.K. only)
Important
If the mains plug supplied with this printer is not suitable for your socket
outlet, remove the plug from the mains cord and fit an appropriate three
pin plug. If the replacement plug is intended to take a fuse then fit the
same rating fuse as the original.
If a moulded plug is severed from the mains cord then it should be
destroyed because a plug with cut wires is dangerous if engaged in a live
socket outlet. Do not leave it where a child might find it!
In the event of replacing the plug fuse, fit a fuse approved by ASTA to
BS1362 with the same rating as the original fuse.
Always replace the fuse cover. Never use a plug with the cover omitted.
WARNING - THIS PRINTER MUST BE EARTHED
xii
REGULATIONS
The wires in the mains cord are coloured in accordance with the
following code :
GREEN AND YELLOW
: EARTH
BLUE
: NEUTRAL
BROWN
: LIVE
The colours of the wires in the mains lead of this printer may not
correspond with the coloured markings identifying the terminals in your
plug.
If you need to fit a different plug, proceed as follows.
Remove a length of the cord outer sheath, taking care not to damage the
coloured insulation of the wires inside.
Cut each of the three wires to the appropriate length. If the construction
of the plug permits, leave the green and yellow wire longer than the
others so that, in the event that the cord is pulled out of the plug, the
green and yellow wire will be the last to disconnect.
Remove a short section of the coloured insulation to expose the wires.
The wire which is coloured green and yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter “E” or by the safety
earth symbol , or coloured green or green and yellow.
The wire which is coloured blue must be connected to the terminal which
is marked with the letter “N” or coloured black or blue.
The wire which is coloured brown must be connected to the terminal
which is marked with the letter “L” or coloured red or brown.
The outer sheath of the cord must be secured inside the plug. The
coloured wires should not hang out of the plug.

ABOUT THIS PRINTER
Features
This printer has the following standard features. When you need more
information on how to use a particular feature, turn to the page indicated at
the end of the paragraph.
High Speed and Quiet Laser Printing
This printer uses electrophotography technology by laser beam scanning so
that it can print at a speed of 12 pages per minute. The controller utilizes a
high speed 32-bit RISC microprocessor and special hardware chips. The
quiet printing will not bother you working in your office or at home: max.
49 dB A (printing)/40 dB A (stand-by).

Compared with a 300-dpi engine, the quality of the output is far superior.
See page 4-28. By utilizing the 300-dpi mode, the printer can also print
300-dpi data, if necessary. (In HP emulation you can select a horizontal
1200-dpi mode by special control command. See page Appendix-52.)
High Resolution Control
The high resolution control (HRC) technology provides clear and crisp
printouts and improves even the 600-dpi resolution. See 4-30.
Maintenance-Free Toner Cartridge
The toner cartridge can print up to 6,000 single-sided pages. The one piece,
easy-to-replace toner cartridge does not require difficult maintenance. Just
install it. See 2-7.
Advanced Photoscale Technology
This printer can print graphics in 256 shades of gray in HP® LaserJet 4+™
emulation and BR-Script level 2, producing nearly photographic quality.

CHAPTER 1 GENERAL
Universal Paper Cassette and Manual Loading
This printer loads paper automatically from the paper cassette. Since the
paper cassette is a universal type, a number of different sizes of paper can
be used. Even envelopes can be loaded from the multi-purpose tray and the
upper paper cassette. In addition, the multi-purpose tray allows you to load
paper sheet by sheet. See 3-15 for auto loading and 3-16 for manual
loading.
Three Interfaces
This printer has a high speed bi-directional parallel interface, an RS-232C
serial interface, and a modular input/output (MIO) compatible interface.
If your application software supports the bi-directional parallel interface,
you can monitor the printer status. It is fully compatible with the
industry-standard bi-directional parallel interface. See page 2-17.
The RS-232C serial interface is an industry standard so that you can
connect it to any computer using a standard serial cable. See page 2-17.
The MIO interface allows you to install a commercial MIO-compatible
card. If you install the card, you can use one more interface port for features
such as networking or printer sharing. See page 5-6.
Automatic Interface Selection
This printer can automatically select the bi-directional parallel, RS-232C
serial, or MIO interface depending on the interface port through which it
receives data. With this feature, the printer can be connected to more than
one computer. See page 3-5.
Five Emulation Modes
This printer can emulate the Hewlett-Packard® laser printer-LaserJet 4+
(PCL® 5e), PostScript® Level 2 language emulation (Brother BR-Script
Level 2) printers, the industry-standard HP-GL™ plotter as well as
EPSON® FX-850™, and IBM® Proprinter XL® printers. You can print
with all application programs that support one of these printers. See page
3-1.

its memory so that it can print larger graphics and more fonts without
additional memory.
Memory Expansion
This printer has 2-Mbyte or 4-Mbyte of RAM as standard. It can be
expanded up to 66 Mbytes. The memory should be expanded to 6 Mbytes in
total or more to enjoy 600-dpi or APT printouts in the BR-Script 2 mode.
When you select duplex mode with an optional duplex unit installed, the
memory should be expanded to 10Mbytes in total or more to enjoy 600-dpi
duplex printing. See pages 4-28 and 5-7. (The standard memory fitted can
vary depending on the printer model and country.)

SOFTWARE COMPATIBILITY
Before working with your application software, you need to set up or install
the printer driver in your software. Locate the printers that your application
software supports and install the desired printer driver. Each software
package differs in the way the printer driver is selected. Read the software
manual and follow the setup or installation procedures.
Be sure to select the printer emulation mode that matches the installed
printer driver. This printer emulates particular printer models of the
following manufacturers. Since this printer has been factory set with the
automatic emulation selection on, you may not need to select the emulation
mode. When necessary, select the appropriate printer emulation mode with
the panel switches according to the printer driver installed in your
application software. See “CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL.”

USER’S GUIDE
To get the most out of this printer, you need to install the printer driver for
this printer or the HP LaserJet 4+ and select the HP LaserJet 4+ emulation
mode: this is the best combination. When any other HP LaserJet series
printer driver is installed, select the HP LaserJet 4+ emulation mode. When
any other printer driver is installed, select the HP-GL, BR-Script 2,
EPSON, or IBM emulation mode according to the installed printer driver.
You may find difficulty in printing EPS file format pictures with the HP
LaserJet 4+ mode. In this case, it is better to select the BR-Script 2 mode.
An asterisk (*) indicates the best or recommended combination of the
printer driver and emulation mode. Be sure to use any of these best or
recommended combinations if circumstances permit. When an emulation
mode other than the HP mode or BR-Script 2 is selected, the printout may
differ slightly from the printout that the target printer produces.
For Windows 95 or Windows 3.1 users, to get the best performance from
your printer, install the driver supplied with your printer.
3–2
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
AUTOMATIC EMULATION SELECTION
This printer has an automatic emulation selection function. When the
printer receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the
emulation mode. This function has been factory set to ON.
The printer can select the emulation among the following combinations:
EPSON/IBM Priority
Auto Selection Mode
EPSON (default)
HP LaserJet 4+
BR-Script 2
HP-GL
EPSON FX-850
IBM
HP LaserJet 4+
BR-Script 2
HP-GL
IBM Proprinter XL
To get the most out of this laser printer, we recommend you use the HP
LaserJet 4+ emulation mode, which is a true laser printer mode. Since the
HP LaserJet 4+ mode takes the highest priority in the automatic emulation
selection, you can start using the printer as it is with the factory settings in
most cases.
When the automatic emulation selection is active, you can check the
current emulation on the display. When the printer is in ready, print, or wait
states, the display reads as follows:

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you use the automatic emulation selection, note the following:
• Once the emulation is automatically changed, it is not changed again
for a short period of time. This time period is called “Time Out” and it
can be set with the EMULATION switch. The factory setting is 5
seconds.
• The EPSON or IBM emulation mode priority must be selected, as the
printer cannot distinguish between them. Since the factory setting is the
EPSON emulation mode, you might need to select the IBM emulation
mode with the EMULATION switch when you need to use this
emulation..
• Try this function with your application software or network server. If
the function does not work properly, select the required emulation mode
manually using the printer panel switches or use emulation selection
commands from your software.
3–4
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
AUTOMATIC INTERFACE SELECTION
This printer has an automatic interface selection function. When the printer
receives data from the computer, it automatically selects the bi-directional
parallel, RS-232C serial interface, or MIO interface as appropriate.
When you use the parallel interface, you can turn the high-speed and bidirectional parallel communications on or off with the MODE switch. For
further information, see “MODE Switch” in Chapter 4. Since the automatic
interface selection mode has been factory set to ON, simply connect the
interface cable to the printer.
When you use the serial interface, you need to have the same
communications settings on both the printer and computer. Since the
automatic interface selection mode has been factory set with certain
settings, you may be able to simply connect the interface cable to the
printer if your computer has the settings listed below.
Communications Parameters
Baud rate (data transfer speed)
Code type (data length)
Parity (data error check)
Stop bit (data separator)
Xon/Xoff (handshake protocol)
DTR (ER)
Robust Xon
Factory Settings
9600
8 bits
None
1 stop bit
ON

OFF
If a commercial interface card has been installed in the MIO card slot, it can
be selected automatically.
When necessary, select the interface or the serial communications
parameters manually with the MODE switch (INTERFACE MODE) on the
printer. For further information, see “MODE Switch” in Chapter 4. For the
settings on the computer, see the manual of the computer or software you
are using.
3–5
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you use the automatic interface selection, note the following:
• Once the interface is automatically changed, it is not changed again for
a short period of time. This time period is called “Time Out” and it can
be set with the MODE switch. The factory setting is 5 seconds.
• The communications parameters [ baud rate, code type, parity, stop bit,
Xon/Xoff, DTR(ER), and Robust Xon] must be set for the serial
interface. Although they have been factory set as shown in the above
table, you may need to change them with the MODE switch.
• This function takes a few seconds to work. If you want to speed up
printing, select the required interface manually with the MODE switch.
If you constantly use only one interface, we recommend that you select that
interface in the interface mode. The printer allocates all of the input buffer
to that interface if only one interface is selected.

USER’S GUIDE
Printer Settings
You may operate the printer with the panel switch settings unchanged.
They have been factory set. When necessary, change and store them in the
printer memory as user settings.
There are two types of printer settings available on this printer:
1. User Settings
2. Factory Settings
Remember that the user settings override the factory settings. The user
settings are effective until other settings are made or they are restored to the
factory settings.
User Settings
Although the printer settings have been factory set, you can change them
with the control panel switches. Since this printer has a memory, you can
store the panel switch settings in the memory as “User Settings.” They are
recalled every time you turn on the printer.
In addition to the current settings, you can save two more sets of user
settings with the MODE switch and restore to them with the RESET switch.
The current settings are cleared after restoring one of the saved user
settings.
Factory Settings
The printer settings have been set at the factory before shipment. They are
called “Factory Settings.” Although you can operate the printer with these
factory settings unchanged, you can tailor the printer by making user
settings.
✒ Note
Changing the user settings does not affect factory settings. You cannot
modify the preset factory settings.
The changed user settings can be restored to the factory default settings
with the RESET switch. For further information, see “RESET Switch” in
Chapter 4.

Using Envelopes
Avoid using envelopes with the following characteristics:
• Smooth or shiny surfaces
• Protection cover at envelopes’ adhesive parts
• Sealing flaps that have not been folded at purchase
• Sealing flaps as shown below
• Three or more layers of paper in the marked area
• Each side folded as shown below
Fig. 3-3 Envelope Information
3–13
USER’S GUIDE
Before loading envelopes in the cassette, check the following:
• Envelopes should have a lengthwise sealing flap.
• The sealing flaps should be crisply and correctly folded (irregularly cut
or folded envelopes may cause paper jams).
• Envelopes should consist of two layers of paper in the following
marked area.
Feeding Direction
Fig. 3-4 Envelopes
✒ Note
If envelopes get smudged during printing, set the print density to a higher
value in the ADVANCED MODE with MODE switch for darker printouts.
To adjust the print density setting, see “Checking the Printed Test Pattern or
Demo Page” in Chapter 2.
• Envelope joints that are sealed by the manufacturer should be secure.
• All sides should be properly folded without any wrinkles or creases.
3–14
CHAPTER 3 BEFORE WORKING WITH THE PRINTER
Cassette Feed
The printer can feed paper from the multi-purpose tray, the upper or the
optional lower paper cassette. You can select the multi-purpose tray as a
paper cassette with the FEEDER switch. Since the auto paper feed
mode has been factory set, the printer usually feeds paper from the
upper paper cassette. When the optional lower paper cassette is installed
and the upper paper cassette runs out of paper, the printer automatically
switches to the lower paper cassette. When the lower paper cassette
runs out of paper or it is not installed, the printer automatically switches
to the multi-purpose tray (T1>T2>MP) and feeds from there as long as
they contain paper of the same size. When necessary, select the feeder
with the FEEDER switch. For further information, see “FEEDER
Switch” in Chapter 4. For information about the lower paper cassette,
see “LOWER TRAY UNIT” in Chapter 5.
✒ Notes
When you load paper into the multi-purpose tray or the paper cassette, note
the following:
• If you use the multi-purpose tray, the paper size has to be manually set
in the MP TRAY SETTING mode with the FEEDER switch.
• If your application software supports paper size selection on the print
menu, you can select it through the software. If your application
software does not support it, you can set the paper size with the MODE
switch.
• The paper size has been factory set to letter for 110/120V models or A4
for 220/240V models. If you want to use other sizes of paper or
envelopes, change the paper size in the PAGE FORMAT MODE of the
FORMAT MODE with the MODE switch. For paper size selection, see
“MODE Switch” in Chapter 4.
• If you use pre-printed paper in the cassettes, please note that the paper
should be loaded with the printed side face down and the top of the
paper to the front of the cassette. If you use pre-printed paper in the
multi-purpose tray, the paper should be loaded with the printed side
face up and the top of the paper towards the printer.
You can set the paper size for the paper cassette with the MODE switch in
the PAGE FORMAT mode. The printer automatically detects the paper size
you set in the paper cassette. If you load a different size of paper in the
paper cassette from the size selected with the MODE switch or through
your application software, the printer prompts you to set the proper size of
paper as follows:
LOAD PAPER
↔ **** SIZE
( **** indicates the paper size you have selected with the MODE
switch in the PAGE FORMAT mode or through your application
software.)

Manual Feed
When you set paper in the multi-purpose tray with the setting MANUAL
FEED = ON selected with the FEEDER switch, the printer loads paper
only from the multi-purpose tray regardless of the previous feeder
selection. When you select the setting PAPER IN = CONT in the MP TRAY
SETTING mode, the printer loads paper automatically from the multipurpose tray. When you select the setting PAPER IN = STOP, the printer
waits for you to press the SEL key to start printing. You can set the paper
feed mode and the paper size with the FEEDER switch. For further
information, see “FEEDER Switch” in Chapter 4.
✒ Notes
When you feed paper manually, note the following:
• If your application software supports a manual feed selection in the
print menu, you can select it through the software. Since the software or
command setting overrides the switch setting, you do not need to set the
manual feed mode and the paper size with the FEEDER switch.
• If you use pre-printed paper in the multipurpose tray, please note that it
is inserted with the pre-printed side face up. Insert the top of the page
towards the printer in the multi-purpose tray.

4–5
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you press the SEL switch, remember the following:
• All other switches—except the SEL switch—are operational only when
the printer is off-line.
• If the printer is not in auto emulation mode, the LCD displays the current
emulation by pressing the SEL key to take it off-line, but you cannot
enter other emulation modes. To make settings in other emulation
modes, press the EMULATION switch and select the emulation.
• The SEL switch works as a “quick exit” switch. If you are lost in the
display menus or you want to quickly exit the display menu, press the
SEL switch. You can exit quickly from any depth of the display menu to
the on-line ready state. If you have already made a setting effective by
pressing the SET switch and then press the SEL switch to quickly exit,
your setting (whether made by accident or on purpose) will remain
effective. Pressing the SEL switch will not cancel any setting.
SET Switch
Pressing the SET switch allows you to select certain items on the display or
make the displayed menu or setting effective. The switch also works as an
execute switch to perform the displayed function.
When you press the SET switch, the printer stores the settings you have
selected into the memory as “User Settings.” Every time you turn on the
printer, it is reset according to these user settings. They remain effective
until you make new settings or restore them to the factory settings. For
factory reset, see “RESET Switch” in this chapter.
✒ Note
When you press the SET switch to select a setting, an asterisk appears at the
end of display for a short time. Since the asterisk indicates the selection, you
can easily find the current setting when you scroll through the display.
▲ (UP) or ▼ (DOWN) Switch
Pressing ▲ (UP) or ▼ (DOWN) switch scrolls the menus and settings
forward or backward respectively on the display. Press or keep pressing the
switch until you access the desired item.

The above high-speed and bi-directional settings are used for the
bi-directional parallel interface of this printer. The bi-directional parallel
interface is compatible with the IEEE 1284 standard bi-directional parallel
interface. Although it uses the same cable, hardware, and software as the
bi-directional parallel interface, to use its enhanced capabilities—such as
bi-directional communication between the computer and printer and faster
transmission of data—you need a printer driver or software that supports
these features. Check with your software vendor to see if your software
supports bi-directional parallel features.
■ Serial Interface
When you intend to use the serial interface, be sure to select the same
communications parameters on both the printer and computer. You must set
them for the automatic interface selection, too.

USER’S GUIDE
✒ Notes
When you make settings in PAGE FORMAT MODE, note the following:
• The letter size has been factory set for 110/120V model. The A4 size has
been factory set for 220/240V model.
• When you use a smaller size of paper than that specified in the PAGE
FORMAT MODE, be sure that the print area is smaller than the paper
size, or the inside of the printer will get stained with toner. It is
recommended that you perform a test before actual use: for this test, you
could use a letter or A4 size of paper to see the printed area is
completely inside the paper size you are going to use. This simple test
will help prevent toner from being incorrectly applied to the inside of
your printer, which may cause later print jobs to be smudged with toner.
• The factory settings of the right/left margins and lines vary according to
the paper size and orientation. See the tables below.
• The top and bottom margins have been factory set to 0.5” in the HP
emulation mode and to 0.33” in the non-HP emulation modes.
• The setting margins are subject to the current page orientation. The
display shows the current orientation with “P” for portrait and “L” for
landscape.
• Images offset outside the print area are not printed.
■ About Right and Left Margins
The settings range of the right and left margins are subject to the page
orientation as follows. The right margin should be placed 10 columns
greater than the left margin: minimum text width = 10 columns.
If the orientation is changed, the margin settings are restored to the factory
settings. If the paper size is changed and the right and left margins exceed
the paper size, they are restored to the factory settings: if they do not exceed
the paper size, they remain effective.
The following table shows the settings range in columns. The factory
settings are printed in bold.

CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
■ About Line Settings
Setting the number of lines/page automatically sets the line spacing or line
feed pitch. If the paper size is changed, the number of lines/page changes
accordingly. The new setting is calculated with the following expression
and the remainder, if any, is ignored. However, the line feed pitch and the
top and bottom margins remain effective.
# of Lines/Page =
Page Length – (Top Margin + Bottom Margin)
Line Feed Pitch [Vertical Motion Index (VMI)]
The setting of lines/page is subject to the current paper size and orientation.
For example, when letter-sized paper is used, the printer can print 60 lines
per page in portrait orientation. If the orientation is changed, the line
settings are restored to the factory settings in that orientation.
The following tables show the factory settings in each emulation mode.

Even if you set the resolution to 600 dpi in this mode, the printer may not be
able to print large files at 600 dpi because of insufficient memory. However,
it automatically decreases the resolution to 300 dpi to print them. While the
printer is printing, the display prompts “01 PR300 … .”
If the printer cannot print files even at 300 dpi, the “MEMORY FULL”
error occurs. See “TROUBLESHOOTING” in Chapter 7.
This automatic resolution decrease function works in the BR-Script 2 mode
and other emulation modes with the page protection on. See also “PAGE
PROTECTION” in this chapter.
When you want to print without decreasing the resolution, you must expand
the memory capacity of the printer to 6-Mbytes or more.

USER’S GUIDE
Select the ID with the ▲ or ▼ switch and press the SET switch again, so that
the printer saves the font with the selected ID.
✒ Note
When you see an asterisk on the display, the ID number has been used for
another font. If you select the used ID number, the old font is erased and
replaced with the new one.
Whatever font you have selected with the FONT switch, the printer saves
the font as a bitmapped font as long as the print size is no more than 24
points, so that the printer can print it faster than when they are not saved. It
is recommended that you save the scalable font you frequently use for faster
printing.
Since the flash memory card or the HDD card is in the upper card slot A of
the printer and fonts stored in the card behave in the same way as they
would if they were in a dedicated Font Card, you can select the saved fonts
as “SLOTFONT A” with the FONT switch or the font selection command
from your software. For font selection, see “FONT Switch” in Chapter 4.
You can check the saved fonts by printing the list of fonts with the TEST
switch. See “TEST Switch” in Chapter 4.
✒ Notes
When you save the primary or secondary font, note the following:
• The font is temporarily stored in the RAM of the printer before it is
saved on the card. If the font data exceeds the RAM capacity, a memory
full error occurs. You can clear this error with the CONTINUE switch.
As not all the font data has been stored in RAM, you cannot save the font
to the card. When the font data is saved, the printer is reset to ensure as
much capacity as possible in RAM. If any data remains, it is printed out.
• If you have saved the font at 600-dpi resolution and change the printer
resolution to 300 dpi, the printer cannot print the saved font.

✒ Notes
When you use the FONT switch, note the following:
• The FONT switch is effective in the HP LaserJet 4+, EPSON FX-850,
and IBM Proprinter XL modes. However the settings are subject to the
current emulation mode. Note that the FONT switch does not work in
the BR-Script 2 mode.
• If the application software supports font and symbol/character set
selection, you do not need to set them with the FONT switch. The
software or command setting overrides the switch setting.
• If you want to use optional fonts other than the printer’s resident fonts,
be sure to install a font cartridge/card that has your desired fonts. The
printer automatically selects the font that has exactly the same or similar
characteristics as those you set through the software or with a command.
If the installed font cartridge/card happens to have a font of similar
characteristics, the printer will print with an unexpected font.
• You can store the fonts you require on a flash memory card or HDD card
only in the HP LaserJet 4+ mode or BR-Script 2 mode when one is
installed. See “CARD OPERATION.”

FORM FEED Switch (REPRINT Switch)
The FORM FEED switch works in two ways according to the DATA lamp
status.
Form Feed
When the printer is off-line and there is data remaining in the printer
memory, the DATA lamp comes on. Pressing the FORM FEED switch
executes a form feed and prints out the remaining data. The display may
look as follows:
01 PRINT 001P T1
If you set the number of copies with the COPY switch and press the FORM
FEED switch during copy printing, the printer suspends the form feed
operation and the display shows the following message:
07 FF PAUSE
Pressing the SEL switch again resumes the form feed operation.
When no data remains in the printer memory and you press the FORM
FEED switch, the printer ignores this switch operation and the display
shows the following message:
No Data !!!
✒ Note
If you want the printer to print out the remaining data automatically, you can
set the auto form feed function with the MODE switch. See “AUTO
FORMFEED” in Chapter 4.
Reprint Function
You can reprint the same page of data without sending it from the computer
again. When you press the FORM FEED switch with the DATA lamp off,
the printer reprints the same page. You can use this function in order to
recover printing when a paper jam has occurred.
After printing is finished, set the printer off-line and press the FORM FEED
switch once, so that the printer prints the last page of data.
4–61
USER’S GUIDE
When you press the FORM FEED switch one or more times during
reprinting, you can set the number of pages to reprint. The printer reprints
the same page the number of times you press the switch.
✒ Note
The reprint data remains in the printer’s memory until the printer is reset or
the emulation, or some settings are changed. After you have reprinted
confidential data, be sure to reset the printer to clear it from the printer’s
memory.
4–62
CHAPTER 4 CONTROL PANEL
CONTINUE Switch
If there is a problem with the printer, it automatically suspends printing and
goes off-line. Pressing the CONTINUE switch may ignore the error and
resume printer operation.
The function of this switch varies according to the CONTINUE mode set
with the MODE switch.
Since the CONTINUE mode has been factory set to MANUAL, you need to
press the CONTINUE switch to recover from a printer error message. If you
set the mode to AUTO, the printer attempts to resume the operation without
pressing the CONTINUE switch.
For further information, see “CONTINUE MODE” in Chapter 4.

✒ Notes
When you select a feeder, note the following:
• The “FEEDER=TRAY2” message appears only when the optional
lower tray unit has been installed.
• The FEEDER=AUTO setting allows you to optimize your printing
environment. This setting allows a print job to continue uninterrupted
when a paper out condition occurs. The default setting is AUTO. This
setting allows a common printing situation: Loading the same size and
type of paper in all paper trays. This allows your print job to continue
without error if one of the paper trays becomes empty. The printer will
automatically select another tray if one tray becomes empty.
• When you select the FEEDER=AUTO, the printer automatically
searches for the paper size you set with the MODE switch in the PAGE
FORMAT mode and loads the paper from the paper source that contains
the selected size of paper. If all of the upper and lower paper cassettes
and the multi-purpose tray contain different sizes of paper and one paper
cassette runs out of paper, the printer stops printing without
automatically changing to the other paper source to feed paper. It
prevents a different size of paper from being printed by mistake.
• If you have the same size of paper loaded but of different type (i.e.:
FORM “A” in Tray 1, Form “B” in Multi-purpose Tray) it is
recommended to change the feeder setting from AUTO to Tray 1. This
setting will allow the printer to pause when a paper empty condition
occurs, allowing you to load the correct type of paper, then press SEL to
finish to print job.

Selecting the Optional Fonts
After you have installed the optional font cartridge/card, you can select
optional fonts by any of the following methods:
1. Through your application software
2. With a font selection command
3. With the FONT switch
When you select fonts through your application software, follow the
instructions specific to your software. Refer to your software manual if you
need assistance. When you select fonts with a font selection command,
embed the font selection command in your program. See the Technical
Reference Manual, which is optionally available for this printer.

the following:
• You do not need to be concerned about the FONT switch setting. The
software or command setting overrides the switch setting.
• Be sure to install the font cartridge/card that has your desired fonts. The
printer automatically selects the font that has exactly the same or similar
characteristics as those you set through the software or with a command.
If the installed font cartridge/card happens to have a font of similar
characteristics, the printer will print in an unexpected font.
To select fonts with the FONT switch, follow these basic steps:
1. Print out the list of optional fonts in the PRINT FONTS C mode with
the SHIFT and TEST switches.

Toner Cartridge
A new toner cartridge contains enough toner to print approximately 6,000
A4/Letter-size single-sided pages at about 5% coverage (if the print density
is set at level 8).
You can check the current page count or the number of printed pages with
the MODE switch (PAGE COUNTER). For further information, see
“MODE Switch” in Chapter 4.
✒ Notes
Toner consumption varies according to the image coverage on the page and
the print density setting.
• The greater the image coverage, the greater the toner consumption.
• If you change the print density setting for lighter or darker printing,
toner consumption varies accordingly. To adjust print density setting,
see “Checking the Printed Test Pattern or Demo Page” in Chapter 2.
Toner Empty Message
Check printed pages, page counter, and display messages periodically. If
the display shows the following message, the printer has almost run out of
toner or the toner is not evenly distributed inside the cartridge.
16 TONER EMPTY
Although you can print between 30 and 100 additional pages after the toner
empty message first appears, be sure to replace the toner cartridge with a
new one before it becomes completely empty.
You can select the printer’s action when the “TONER EMPTY” message
appears, whether to stop or continue printing. See “ADVANCED MODE”
in Chapter 4.

Cleaning the Printer Exterior
Clean the printer exterior as follows:
1. Turn off the printer and unplug the power cord.
2. Remove the paper cassette and optional font cartridge/card.
3. Open the multi-purpose tray.
4. Wipe the printer body with a soft cloth to remove dust from it.
Dip the cloth in water and wring it out thoroughly for cleaning.

■ Toner Scatter
If toner scatters around printed characters and stains the printed page, clean
the printer interior. See “Cleaning” in Chapter 6.
Fig. 7-13 Toner Scatter
If the same print problem occurs after cleaning, take any of the following
actions:
• Make sure that you use paper, OHP films, or envelopes that meet
specifications.
• Check for glue on the paper. Glue causes toner to scatter.
• If toner scatters over the entire printing surface, adjust the print
density. See “Checking the Printed Test Pattern or Font List” in
Chapter 2.

If an entire page is printed in black, make sure that the toner cartridge is
properly installed. Never use heat-sensitive paper, or it may cause this
problem.

■ White Page
If nothing is printed on pages, make sure that the toner cartridge is not
empty, the sealing tape is removed from the toner cartridge, or you use
paper, OHP films, or envelopes that meet specifications.
If a stack of paper is not fanned, more than one sheet may be loaded at a
time, which may cause blank pages to be ejected.

■ Dropout
If nothing or part of a page is printed, make sure that the toner cartridge is
not empty or the toner is evenly distributed in the cartridge. Take the proper
action, referring to “Unclear Printouts” in this section.
Also, make sure that you use paper, OHP films or envelopes that meet
specifications. Moist paper causes this problem.
If the print density is set too low, this problem may occur. Adjust the print
density to the proper setting. See “Checking the Printed Test Pattern or Font
List” in Chapter 2.

Appendix–4
APPENDICES
Test printing on paper, especially envelopes, is
recommended before making a large purchase. The
following types of envelopes are
not recommended for use.
• Envelopes with thick and/or crooked edges
• Damaged, curled, wrinkled, or irregularly shaped
envelopes
• Extremely shiny or highly textured envelopes
• Envelopes with clasps
• Envelopes of baggy construction
• Envelopes not sharply creased
• Embossed envelopes
• Envelopes already printed with a laser printer
• Envelopes pre-printed on the inside
• Envelopes that cannot be arranged uniformly when
placed in a pile
✒ Notes
• An area 15 mm (0.6”) from the edges of the envelope will not be
printed.
• Avoid feeding labels with the carrier sheet exposed. Otherwise, your
printer will be damaged.
• When feeding OHP film, the use of a recommended type for laser
printers will ensure optimum printing. For detailed information on the
specification or purchase, please contact your nearest authorized sales
representative or the place of purchase.
■ PAPER
The printer is designed to work well with most types of xerographic and
bond paper. However, some paper variables may have an effect on print
quality or handling reliability. Always test samples of paper before buying
to ensure that it provides desirable performance. Some important
guidelines when selecting paper are:
1. Supplier should be informed that the paper or envelopes will be used in
a laser printer.
2. Preprinted papers must use inks that can withstand the temperature of
the printers fusing process. (200 degrees centigrade)
3. If selecting a cotton bond paper, paper having a rough surface such as
cockle or laid finished paper, or paper that is wrinkled or puckered may
exhibit degraded performance.
Appendix–5
USER’S GUIDE
✒ Note
The manufacturer neither warrants or recommends the use of any particular
paper. The operator is responsible for the quality of paper used with the
printer.
Paper Types to Avoid
Some types of paper might not perform well or may cause damage to your
printer.
Types of paper to avoid are:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Highly textured paper.
Smooth or shiny paper.
Paper that is coated or has a chemical finish.
Damaged, wrinkled or prefolded paper.
Paper exceeding the recommend weight specification specified in the
manual.
6. Paper with tabs and staples.
7. Letterheads using low temperature dyes or thermography.
8. Multipart or carbonless paper.
DAMAGE OR OTHER DEFECTS CAUSED BY THE USE OF
PAPERS LISTED UNDER “PAPER TYPES TO AVOID” WILL NOT
BE COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE
AGREEMENTS.
■ ENVELOPES
Most envelopes will perform acceptably on your printer. However; some
envelopes will have feeding and print quality problems because of their
construction. A suitable envelope should have edges with a straight, well
creased folds and should not have more than two thickness of paper along
the lead edge. The envelope should lie flat and not have baggy or flimsy
construction. Purchase quality envelopes only from a supplier who
understands that the envelopes will be used in a laser printer. All envelopes
should be tested prior to use to ensure desirable print results.
Envelope Types to Avoid
1. Envelopes constructed with a paper with a weight that exceeds the
paper weight specifications for the printer.
2. Poorly manufactured envelopes with edges that are not straight or
consistently square.
3. Envelopes with “baggy” construction or folds that are not sharply
creased.
4. Envelopes with transparent windows, holes, cutouts or perforations.
Appendix–6
APPENDICES
5.
6.
7.
8.
Envelopes with clasps, snaps or tie strings.
Envelopes made with smooth or shiny paper.
Envelopes that are rough, highly textured, or deeply embossed.
Envelopes which do not lie flat or that are curled, wrinkled, or
irregularly shaped.
9. Envelopes having an open flap with an adhesive that seals the envelope.
USE OF ANY OF THE ENVELOPES LISTED ABOVE MAY
CAUSE DAMAGE TO YOUR PRINTER. SUCH DAMAGE IS NOT
COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE
AGREEMENT.
✒ Note
The manufacturer neither warrants nor recommends the use of a particular
envelope because envelope properties are subject to change by the
envelope manufacturer. The entire responsibility for the quality and
performance of the envelope lies with the customer.
■ LABELS AND OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES
The printer will print on most type of labels and transparencies designed for
use with a laser printer. Labels should have an adhesive that is acrylic-based
since such material is more stable at the high temperatures in the fusing
unit. Adhesives should not come in contact with any part of the printer,
because the label stock may stick to the drum or rollers and cause jams and
print quality problems. No adhesive should be exposed between the labels.
Labels should be arranged so that they cover the entire page with the only
exposed spaces being lengthwise down the sheet. Using labels with spaces
may result in labels peeling off and causing serious jam or print problems.
All labels and transparencies used in this printer must be able to withstand a
temperature of 200 degrees centigrade (392 degrees Fahrenheit) for a
period of 0.1 seconds.
Label and transparency sheets should not exceed the paper weight
specifications described in the User’s Guide. Labels and transparencies
exceeding this specification may not feed or print properly and cause
damage to your printer.
The entire responsibility for the quality and performance of labels and
transparencies lies with the customer.
DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE USE OF UNSATISFACTORY
LABELS OR TRANSPARENCIES IS NOT COVERED UNDER
ANY WARRANTY OR SERVICE AGREEMENTS.

CCITT G3/G4 and TIFF (original command)
One of the unique features of the PCL mode of this printer is it supports
CCITT G3/G4 type data compression and TIFF format.
■ CCITT G3/G4 (Raster Graphic Mode 1152)
The printer’s PCL mode supports CCITT G3/G4 type graphic data
compression.
This format is popular in optical document storage area as this compression
is effective to store black and white type pictures.
Compression mode for CCITT G3/G4 is 1152 and the command becomes
ESC * b 1152 M.
As G3/G4 format does not have picture size/resolution information, the
printer requires a header at the beginning of the picture data. The header
size is 94 byte. Both the header and the picture data are transferred by one
transfer graphics data command (ESC * b ### W). Normal PCL transfer
graphics data command has a limitation of the data size and ### should not
exceed 32767. Unlike other mode, mode 1152 is special and this mode does
not have 32767 byte size limitation.
Print model is not applied to this type of raster graphics.
The mode 1152 graphic data consists of the following data structure. The
picture data follows the header.

You have to specify mode 1152 by sending ESC *b1152M command for
each graphic data transfer.

■ TIFF Format (Raster Graphic Mode 1024) & Advanced Photoscale
Technology
The printer’s PCL mode supports TIFF Version 5.0 file format as a format
to transfer raster graphics data.
Mode set command for TIFF file format is ESC *b1024M.
One transfer graphics data command (ESC*b###W) should contain whole
TIFF file.
In mode 1024, transfer graphics data command byte count does not have a
limitation of 32,767 byte.
The printer supports both ‘MM’ (big endian) format and ‘II’ (little endian)
format.
Print model is not applied to this type of data transfer.
The printer has some limitations on the TIFF file format.
1. Tags position has to be prior to the picture (strip) data.
2. Compression tag --- Tag ID:259
The printer supports 1, 2, 3, 4 and 32773.
1: no compression (Bits/Sample=1,4,8)
2: CCITT G3 MH (Bits/Sample=1)
3: CCITT G3 MR (Bits/Sample=1)
4: CCITT G4 (Bits/Sample=1)
32773: Pack Bit

3. Sample/pixel --- Tag ID:277
This value should be 1. This means the printer accepts only
monochrome TIFF file.
4. Bits/Sample --- Tag ID:258
The printer supports 1, 4 and 8.
If you specify 4 or 8 and the printer resolution is 600 dpi, the
printer prints that page utilizing APT.

Horizontal 1200-dpi Image Format Mode(Raster Graphic Mode
1027)
The printer supports 1200 dpi printing for special image formats in 1200
dpi mode.
We recommend that the installed printer memory is 10 Mbytes or more for
1200 dpi printing.
To set 1200 dpi mode,
1. Set 1200 dpi printing mode by using the following PJL command:
@PJL SET RAS1200MODE = ON
2. Choose PCL mode with the following PJL command:
@PJL ENTER LANGUAGE = PCL
(If you select a mode other than PCL mode, 1200 dpi printing mode cannot
be selected.)
The PCL Mode set command for 1200 dpi Image Format is ESC *b1027M.
The transfer raster data command (ESC*b###W) then transfers horizontal
1200 dpi data.
<1200 dpi Graphic Data Compression Format>
This compression format consists of blocks of data 64 dots down the page
starting from the leading edge of the paper.
Ex.)
If the graphic data extends over three bands as shown in the
following diagram, it transfers the data as three blocks of data:
ESC*b##W <Block 1> <Block 2> <Block 3>

<Compressed Image Data>
Data compression compresses the original image data word by word (16
bits).
The compressed data consists of both horizontal compression which uses
16 bit, 8 bit and 4 bit repeating patterns within 1 word or 2 words of data,
and vertical compression which indicates to repeat the same data as in the
previous line with 1 word of data.
y Non-compressed data
When the most significant bit in the first 2 bytes is 0, the printer goes into
non-compression mode. The following 11 bits then indicate the number of
words of data, and the least significant 4 bits are not used. After that, the
image data follows word by word.

ESC i n … n \
Creates bar codes or expanded characters according to the segment of
parameters “n … n”. For further information about parameters, see the
following “Definition of Parameters.” This command must end with the
“ \ ” code (5CH).
[Definition of Parameters]
This bar code command can have the following parameters in the parameter
segment (n … n). Since parameters are effective within the single command
syntax ESC i n … n \, they don’t take effect in the subsequent bar code
commands. If certain parameters are not specified, they take the default
settings. The last parameter must be the bar code data start (“b” or “B”) or
the expanded character data start (“l” or “L”). Other parameters can be
specified in any sequence. The prefix of each parameter can be a lower-case
or upper-case character: for example, “t0” or “T0”, “s3” or “S3”, etc.
■ Bar Code Mode
n = “t0” or “T0”
n = “t1” or “T1”

readable line below the bar code. Human readable characters are always
printed with OCR-B font of 10 pitch and all the current character style
enhancements are masked. Note that the default setting is subject to the
bar code mode selected by “t” or “T”.
■ Quiet Zone
n = “onnn” or “Onnn” (nnn = 0 ~ 32767)
Quiet Zone is the space on both side of the bar codes. Its width can be
specified using the units which are set by the “u” of “U” parameter. (For
the description of “u” or “U” parameter, see the next section.) The
default setting of Quiet Zone width is 1 inch.

This parameter specifies the height of bar codes or expanded characters
as above. It can take the prefix “h”, “H”, “d”, or “D”. The height of bar
codes is specified in the “u”- or “U”-specified unit. Note that the default
setting of the bar code height (12 mm, 18 mm or 22 mm) is subject to the
bar code mode selected by “t” or “T”.

n = “a2” or “A2”
n = “a3” or “A3”
Upright (default)
Rotated 90 degrees
Upside down, rotated 180 degrees
Rotated 270 degrees
■ Bar Code Data Start
n = “b” or “B”
Data that follows “b” or “B” is read in as bar code data. Bar code data
must end with the “ \ ” code (5CH), which also terminates this
command. The acceptable bar code data is subject to the bar code mode
selected by “t” or “T”.
• When CODE 39 is selected with the parameter “t0” or “T0”:
Forty three characters “0” to “9”, “A” to “Z”, “-”, “ . ”, “ (space)”, “$”,
“ / ”, “+”, and “%” can be accepted as bar code data. Other characters
cause data error. The number of characters for bar codes is not limited.
The bar code data automatically starts and ends with an asterisk “ * ”
(start character and stop character). If the received data has an asterisk
“ * ” at its beginning or end, the asterisk is regarded as a start character
or stop character.
• When Interleaved 2 of 5 is selected with the parameter “t1” or “T1”:
Ten numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data.
Other characters cause data error. The number of characters for bar
codes is not limited. Since this mode of bar codes require even
characters, if the bar code data has odd characters, the zero character
“0” is automatically added to the end of the bar code data.
• When FIM (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter “t3” or “T3”:
Characters “A” to “D” are valid and 1 digit of data can be printed.
Uppercase and lowercase alphabet characters can be accepted.
• When Post Net (US-Post Net) is selected with the parameter “t4” or
“T4”:
Characters “0” to “9” can be data and it must be terminated by a check
digit. “?” can be used in place of the check digit.
Appendix–70
APPENDICES
• When EAN 8, EAN 13, or UPC A is selected with the parameter “t5” or
“T5”:
Ten numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data.
The number of characters for bar codes is limited as follows.
EAN 8:
EAN 13:
UPC A:
Total 8 digits (7 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 13 digits (12 digits + 1 check digit)
Total 12 digits (11 digits + 1 check digit)
A number of characters other than above causes data error and the bar
code data is printed as normal print data. If the check digit is incorrect,
the printer calculates the correct check digit automatically so that the
correct bar code data will be printed. When EAN13 is selected, adding
“+” and a 2-or 5-digit number after the data can create an add-on code.
• When UPC-E is selected with the parameter “t6” or “T6”:
The numerical characters “0” to “9” can be accepted as bar code data.
(1)
8 digits
Standard format. The first character
must be “0” and the data must be terminated by
a check digit.
Total 8 digits = “0” + 6 digits + 1 check digit.
(2)
6 digits
The first character and the last
check digit are removed from the 8 digit data.
*1: For 8 digits, “?” can be used in place of a check digit.
*2: Adding “+” and 2- or 5-digit number after the data creates
an add-on code for all 6 and 8 digit formats.
• When Codabar is selected with the parameter “t9” or “T9”:
Characters “0” to “9”, “-”, “ . ”, “$”, “/”, “+”, “ : ” can be printed.
Characters “A” to “D” can be printed as a start-stop code, which can be
uppercase or lowercase. If there is no start-stop code, errors occur. A
check digit cannot be added and using “?” causes errors.
• When Code 128 Set A, Set B, or Set C is selected with the parameter
“t12” or “T12,” “t13” or “T13,” or “t14” or “T14” respectively:
Code 128 sets A, B and C are individually selectable. Set A encodes
characters Hex 00 … 5F. Set B encodes characters Hex 20 … 7F. Set C
encodes numeric pairs 00 … 99. Switching is allowed between the code
sets by sending %A, %B, or %C. FNC 1, 2, 3, and 4 are produced
with %1, %2, %3, and %4. The SHIFT code, %S, allows temporary
switching (for 1 character only) from set A to set B and vice versa. The
“%” character can be encoded by sending it twice.
Appendix–71
