Introduction
The following rules apply throughout this Service Manual:
1. Each chapter contains sections explaining the purpose of specific functions and the relationship between electrical and mechanical systems with reference to the timing of operation.
In the diagrams,
represents the path of mechanical drive; where a signal name accompanies the
symbol, the arrow
indicates the direction of the electric signal.
The expression "turn on the power" means flipping on the power switch, closing the front door, and closing
the delivery unit door, which results in supplying the machine with power.
2. In the digital circuits, '1'is used to indicate that the voltage level of a given signal is "High", while '0' is used
to indicate "Low".(The voltage value, however, differs from circuit to circuit.) In addition, the asterisk (*) as
in "DRMD*" indicates that the DRMD signal goes on when '0'.
In practically all cases, the internal mechanisms of a microprocessor cannot be checked in the field.
Therefore, the operations of the microprocessors used in the machines are not discussed: they are explained
in terms of from sensors to the input of the DC controller PCB and from the output of the DC controller PCB
to the loads.
The descriptions in this Service Manual are subject to change without notice for product improvement or other
purposes, and major changes will be communicated in the form of Service Information bulletins.
All service persons are expected to have a good understanding of the contents of this Service Manual and all
relevant Service Information bulletins and be able to identify and isolate faults in the machine."

Inks contain an organic solvent, which is not harmful to the human body, though.
When an ink comes into the hands or any other part of your body, wash it away thoroughly. Be careful not
to lick an ink or allow it to come into contact with your eyes.
In the event of eye contact, immediately wash with water thoroughly and obtain medical attention.
Also, if you have swallowed an ink in a large quantity by mistake, obtain medical attention immediately.
Inks contain a pigment and would not come off once they adhere to clothing.
1-41
Chapter 1
b. Ink mists
As the printhead jets an ink against paper to print, traces of ink mists floating during printing or springing
back from the paper are produced in the print station. Such ink mists are collected by mist collection air flow
into the printer. The uncollected portion of ink mists could smear the platen unit, carriage unit, exterior
surfaces and the purge unit, and their surrounding areas.
Such smears could in turn spoil the paper or your hands or clothes during servicing. Wipe such smears off
with a soft cloth moistened with water and wrung carefully.

1.7.2 Other Precautions
1.7.2.1 Printhead
0013-1936
a. Handling the printhead
Do not unpack the printhead until it is ready for immediate use.
When mounting the printhead on the printer, remove protective caps 1 and 2 in this order by holding them
by the lugs. To prevent possible damage to the nozzle section, do not replace protective cap 2 on the
printhead once it has been removed.
After the printhead is removed of its protective caps, assemble it into the printer promptly to prevent the
nozzles from being clogged by foreign matter adhering to the printhead to or a dried ink.
Depress the printhead fixer lever until it clicks into position.
To prevent the problems of nozzle clogging and poor ink suction that may be caused by adhering foreign
matter, never touch the nozzle section and the ink port of the printhead or never wipe their surfaces with
tissue paper or the like. Remember also to keep hands of the electrode section.
The printhead cannot be disassembled/reassembled or rinsed in water.
Memo:
A clogged nozzle or poorly sucked ink could result in a print defect, such as a periodic print void or poor
coloring. If these problems persist even after cleaning, replace the printhead with a new one.

b. Capping action
The printer performs a capping action at the end of printing or when it stands by in the wake of an error
occurrence, to protect the printhead and prevent ink leaks.
If the printer has been powered off by inadvertently disconnecting the power cord from the wall outlet,
reconnect the power cord to the wall out and turn on the power key. When the printer starts up successfully
to enter online or offline mode, turn off the power key.
Failure to perform a capping action successfully could result in problems, such as printhead nozzles clogged
by a dried ink or inks leaking from the printhead.
c. When leaving the printer of service
Even when the printer is out of service, store it with the printhead mounted on it.
Leaving the printer with the printhead removed from it could allow foreign matter to adhere to the printhead
or dry an ink, resulting in clogged nozzles to cause print defects.
If the printhead is drained of inks for shipping purposes even though it is kept mounted on the printer, the
nozzles could dry, resulting in print defects.
d. Ink conductivity
The inks used are conductive. If an ink is found to leak to the mechanical assembly, wipe it off with a soft
cloth moistened with water and wrung thoroughly. If an ink is found to leak to the electrical assembly, blot
it with tissue paper or the like and wipe it off thoroughly. If wiping off a leaking ink thoroughly is difficult,
replace with a new component.
Energizing the printer with the electrical assembly being wetted with an ink could cause damage to it.
Never connect the power cord to the wall outlet while the electrical assembly is wet with an ink.
1.7.2.2 Ink Tank
0012-6229
a. Opening ink tanks
Do not unpack ink tanks until they are ready for immediate use.
When placing an ink tank in position, shake it slowly seven to eight times before opening it. Without
shaking, the ingredients of the ink might settle, resulting in degraded print quality.
Once an ink tank is opened, mount it in the printer promptly to prevent any foreign matter from sticking to
the ink port.
b. Handling ink tanks
1-45
Chapter 1
To prevent foreign matter from infiltrating the ink passage to impair ink suction or print quality, never touch
contact [3] or ink port [4] of ink tank [1].
Depressing ink tank cover [2] of the printer would cause a needle to pierce the ink port, linking the ink
passage of linking ink tank [1] to the printer.
Do not lift up and down ink tank cover [2] except for purposes other than replacing ink tank [1].

1.7.2.3 Handling the Printer
0013-1880
a. Protecting against electrostatic breakdowns
Pieces of clothing rubbing each other could build up static electricity, producing static charges in human
bodies to cause harm to an electrical component or corrupt its electrical characteristics.
You are strongly advised never to touch the printhead contact of the carriage.
[1]Contact with the printhead

F-1-22
1-46
Chapter 1
b. Securing the carriage in position
The carriage is mechanically locked by the lock arm in the purge unit at the same time as the printhead caps
itself at the end of printing.
Before shipping the printer, secure the carriage at the home position with a belt stopper so the carriage won't
be damaged when it is released from the lock arm or inks won't leak during transit.
F-1-23
c. Contact of Linear Scale/Carriage Shaft
Please do not touch a linear scale and the carriage shaft when the inside of the top cover is opened, and execute
maintenance.
When touching a linear scale and the carriage shaft, it might cause defective movement of the carriage and a
defective print.

a) The printer driver on the host computer transmits print data, including command data, to the printer after
compressing the image data, without resolution, color and 12-color binarization conversion.
To achieve high-quality image output, the image processing table data used for image data color conversion and
binarization conversion are generated as command data to meet the Media Type and other specifications of the
printer driver.
b) This printer receives print data from the individual interfaces on the main controller, transmitting the received
print data to ASIC (IC1).
2-2
Chapter 2
c) The main controller decompresses the print data transmitted to the ASIC and gets it through resolution, color
and 5-color binarization conversion while loading the data into DDR-SDRAM from time to time.
It also converts the print data to 5-color binary equivalents of image and command data.
d) The ASIC (IC1) generates image data synthesized with mask data within the ASIC in sync with the discharge
time while loading the data into DDR-SDRAM from time to time.
e) The ASIC (IC2) collects printhead information from EEPROM mounted on the printheads and the printer
temperature from the latch IC on the carriage board and transmit them to the ASIC (IC1).
The ASIC (IC1) also receives mask pattern data from the firmware installed in flash ROM.
f) The ASIC (IC1) converts the image data synthesized with the mask pattern to data associated with the
printhead information and the printer temperature, transmitting the data to the printheads as a print signal. It
transmits heat pulses to the printheads at the same time to optimize head driving.
g) The printheads convert the received print signal from a serial signal to a parallel signal for each row of nozzles
and ANDs it with the heat pulses for perform printing.
h) The ASIC (IC1) controls the general aspects of image processing and print drive control by detecting the
status of the individual printer components with reference to the adjustment values stored in EEPROM. SDRSDRAM is used as work memory.
i) The ASIC (IC2) controls the general aspects of drive control by controlling button actuations and message
displays on the basis of the firmware installed in flash ROM.
2.1.3 Print Driving
0013-5398
Print and control signals are transferred via the carriage relay PCB and head relay PCB to the printheads to
discharge inks from the nozzle assembly at printing.
Each printhead has 12 trains of nozzles arranged in a zigzag pattern.
This printer uses one printhead.
(In installed state, from left to right, C, M, Y, MBK, MBK, BK)
Print signals directed at each nozzle train are even-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-EV) and oddnumbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-OD). These are transferred in timing with a data transfer clock (HxCLK) and data latch pulses (Hx-LT).
The Heat Enable (Hx-x-HE-x) drive control signal enables inks to be discharged from the nozzles.
1. Pint drive control
Each train of nozzles in a printhead has 2,560 nozzles.
Ink discharge nozzles are selected split in 40-, 20- or 10-nozzle blocks according to the Block Enable
information in the even-numbered nozzle data and odd-numbered nozzle data.
Each selected block of nozzles is impressed with a Heat Enable signal generated with variable pulse widths
according to the head rank, head temperature and printer temperature for optimized ink discharges. The nozzles
are driven by heater boards in the nozzles to discharge inks. Optimal nozzle blocks are selected according to
the print path.
The diagram below illustrates the relationship between a 40-block nozzle and nozzles driven.

2. Print drive timing
Each printhead houses 12 trains of nozzles, which share the same data transfer clock (Hx-CLK) and data latch
pulses (Hx-LT).
Even-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-EV), odd-numbered nozzle data (Hx-x-DATA-x-OD) and the
Heat Enable (Hx-x-HE-x) signal are generated for each nozzle train and controlled individually.
Printing is carried out in two ways through reciprocating motion of the carriage.
An encoder sensor mounted on the carriage generates a 150-dpi-pitched linear scale detection signal
(ENCODER_A) and a signal (ENCODER_B) shifted 120 degrees in phase. The direction of carriage motion
is detected from the status of the ENCODER_B signal relative to the leading edge of the ENCODER_A signal.
The printhead is driven using a 2400-dpi timing signal (internal signal), which is generated by dividing the
ENCODER_A signal detected at the 150 dpi timing into 16 equal sections.
Printing in the forward direction is triggered at the leading edge of the detection signal (ENCODER_A).
Printing in the backward direction is carried out the same way as printing in the forward direction but at the
trailing edge of the detection signal (ENCODER_A), when the order of heated nozzles is reversed depending
on the sequence of transfer of even-numbered nozzle data and odd-numbered nozzle data.

2.2.2 Operation Sequence at Power-off
0013-5400
Turning off the power switch cuts off the drive voltage supply, launching a firmware power-off sequence as
shown below.
If the power cord is disconnected from the wall outlet or the top cover or any other cover is opened, the printer
cancels the ongoing operation and shuts down immediately. Since printhead capping may or may not have
been carried out properly, reconnect the power cord to the wall out and turn on the power switch. Making
sure that the printer has entered online or offline mode, turn off the power switch.
Hold down for at least once second

2.2.3 Print Control
0017-4712
1. Print mode
This printer is capable of fast, high-quality printing without blur and non-uniform density by changing the
carriage operation, media feeding, other printing methods according to the selected media type, print quality,
print data and so on.
Printing is performed for each color using a maximum of 16 paths in each print mode according to the selected
print quality.
This reduces density irregularities caused by the variation in the amounts of ink discharged from individual
nozzles. In addition, it shifts the printing timing so that the current ink layer is nearly fixed before the next ink
layer is applied, thus minimizing bleeding.
Even in the same mode, the printer operates in a different way depending on the media setting made using the
printer driver.
a) Draft mode
In the draft mode, image data is thinned out and a single band (equivalent to the width of a nozzle array) is
printed using one path.
To use this mode, select "Draft" under "Print Quality" in the printer driver.
b) Standard mode
In the standard mode, a single band (equivalent to the width of a nozzle array) is printed using 1-6 (1, 2, 4 or 6)
paths.
To use this mode, select "Standard" under "Print Quality" in the printer driver.
c) High quality mode
In the high quality mode, a single band is printed using 2, 4 or 8 paths.
To use this mode, select "High" under "Print Quality" in the printer driver.
d) Highest quality mode
In the high quality mode, a single band is printed using 8, 12 or 16 paths.
To use this mode, select "Highest" under "Print Quality" in the printer driver.

2.2.4 Print Position Adjustment Function
0012-6248
This printer supports a print position adjustment function to adjust the vertical and horizontal print position and
the bidirectional print position of the print head mounted on the carriage and the feed rate.
Print position adjustment work in two modes: automatic adjustment, in which print position adjustment patterns
printed are detected by a multisensor attached to the lower left part of the carriage, and manual adjustment, in
which print position adjustment patterns that are slightly modified from one another are printed, so that visually
verified adjustment values can be set from the operation panel.
To make print position adjustment, A4-or-larger-sized roll media or cut media are needed.
2.2.5 Head Management
0012-6249
This printer supports a nozzle check function to spot non-discharging nozzles in the printhead. When the printer
detects a non-discharging nozzle, it starts cleaning the printhead automatically to correct its discharge failure.
If cleaning does not work, the printer backs up the non-discharging nozzle with an alternative nozzle
automatically to ensure unfailing print performance.
Detection timings (automatic): Power-on, open carriage cover detection, print start (check timing variable by
selecting Nozzle Check from the system menu)
2.2.6 Printhead Overheating Protection Control
0012-6251
When an abnormal temperature rise in the printhead is detected, overtemperature protection control launches.
Overtemperatures could occur in the printhead after a spell of print operations without the nozzles being filled
with inks.
Overtemperature protection control prevents non-discharge failures and damages that might result from an
overheated printhead.
overtemperature protection control is implemented on the basis of the temperature detected by the head
temperature sensor for each nozzle. When an abnormal temperature is detected in any nozzle train,
overtemperature protection control is exerted at one of two levels according to that temperature.
Protection level 1
If the head temperature sensor (DI sensor) has detected a temperature higher than the protection temperature, it
halts the carriage temporarily at the scan end position in the direction of travel according to the carriage scan
2-14
Chapter 2
status.
Printing resumes when the printhead radiates naturally to cool down to below a predetermined temperature or
when 30 seconds or longer have elapsed since the detection of the temperature higher than the protection
temperature.
Protection level 2
When the head temperature sensor (DI sensor) has detected an abnormal temperature, the printer shuts down the
print operation immediately, moving the carriage to the home position for capping, with an error indication on
the display.
2.2.7 Pause between Pages
0012-6252
An inter-page function is available to prevent ink rubbing, which keeps paper just printed hanging above the
platen and waiting for a predetermined period of time before delivery.
The wait time is user-programmable from the print driver. This feature is particularly useful on paper that takes
time to dry after printing.
A 30-second drying time is set automatically for borderless printing.
2.2.8 White Raster Skip
0012-6253
This printer supports a white raster skip function to bypass carriage scanning in a consecutive sequence of voids
in print data for added throughput.
2.2.9 Sleep Mode
0012-6255
The printer has sleep mode to save on its standby power requirement.
The printer transitions to sleep mode automatically when it has been left idle or no print data has been received
for a predetermined period of time while the printer is online or offline.
The printer exits sleep mode when any operation panel key is activated or print data is received from the host
computer.
The time to transition to sleep mode is variable from the operation panel.
(Default: 5 minutes)

2.3 Printer Mechanical System
2.3.1 Outline
2.3.1.1 Outline
0012-6256
The printer mechanism is broken down into two broad sections: the passage and paper passage.
Consisting mainly of a carriage unit that houses ink tanks and a printhead, and a maintenance cartridge, the ink
passage supplies, circulates, sucks and otherwise handles inks.
The paper passage consists of such mechanical components as a paper unit and is designed to feed, convey and
deliver paper in two ways.
A summary description of each mechanical component is given below.

0013-6730
The ink passage comprises ink tanks, a printhead, caps, a waste ink collector, ink tubes interconnecting the
mechanical components, and a suction pump that is driven to suck inks. It supplies, circulates, sucks and
otherwise handles inks.
The ink passage (per color) is schematically shown below, along with the ink flow.

Chapter 2
a) Supplying inks from the ink tanks to the ink supply valve assembly
The ink tanks each contain an ink to feed the printhead.
Head differences allow the inks to flow from the ink tanks to the ink supply valves.
b) Inks flowing from the ink tanks into the subbuffer
As the inks flow from the ink tanks to the subbuffers due to head differences, air infiltrates the ink tanks through
air passages in the subbuffers to keep its internal pressure constant.
When the ink stored in a subbuffer exceeds a predetermined level, it flows into the absorber under the ink tank
through the air passage.
c) Supplying inks from the ink supply valves to the printhead
The ink stored in an ink tank flows to the printhead when the suction pipe is driven with the ink supply valve
opened and the head capped.
As an ink is sucked from the caps, it flows into the waste ink absorber under the maintenance cartridge or purge
unit.
d) Ink supply while printing
The ink supply valves are kept open while printing, so that inks are being constantly fed to the printhead under
the negative pressure of the nozzle assembly caused by discharging inks.
Further, waste inks sucked in a cleaning operation and inks from borderless printing flow into the waste ink
absorber under the maintenance cartridge and into the waste ink box.
When an ink tube filled with ink, opening all whole ink passages (by opening both the ink supply valve and the
printhead fixer lever with an ink tank yet to be installed) could cause the ink in the ink tube to flow backward
due to a head difference, leaking through the hollow needle in the ink tank.
As a precaution, never open all the ink passages at the same time while the ink tubes are filled with inks.
e) Agitating the ink in an ink tank
To prevent the pigment ink stored in a tank from settling, the ink needs to be agitated.
The ink supply valve is continuously opened and closed to cause the ink to flow back into the tank for agitation.
Each ink tank contains an agitating plate to aid in agitating of the ink. (An agitating plate is also installed in the
dye ink tank.)
-Operation timing: Whenever a new tank is installed or 168 hours have expired since the agitation was last
carried out (agitation is carried out regardless of whether printing or cleaning is in progress).
-Ink supply valve open/closed: 30 times (30 seconds)
If 336 hours or more have elapsed, the ink supply valve open/closed count and the time to the next session of
agitation are varied according to the elapsed time.
2-18
Chapter 2
2.3.2.2 Ink Tank Unit
2.3.2.2.1 Structure of Ink Tank Unit
0013-6934
a) Ink tanks
Each color-specific ink tank is filled with 130 mL of ink (90 mL for the starter ink tanks bundled with the
printer). The ink level in each ink tank is memorized in EEPROM attached to the tank and is detected as a dot
count on the basis of the EEPROM information.
When an electrode attached to a hollow needle detects no continuity, it displays a message reporting that the ink
tank is nearly empty. If the dot count reaches a predesigned value in this state, an ink out condition is assumed.
b) Ink port
Depressing the ink tank fixer lever on the printer would cause would cause a hollow needle to pierce the ink port
sealed by a rubber plug, linking the ink passage of the ink tank to the printer.
c) Air passage
Depressing the ink tank fixer lever on the printer would cause an open hollow needle to pierce the air passage
sealed by a rubber plug, releasing the internal pressure of the ink tank to keep it constant.
d) Notches for preventing incorrect installation
Ink tanks are furnished with a notch for preventing incorrect installation. If the installation of an ink tank in
incorrect position is attempted, the notch would interfere with it, preventing its installation.
The ink tank fixer lever won't lower without the ink tank fully inserted to reach the mounting position, so the
ink cannot be supplied.
e) Agitating plate
Assists in the agitation of pigment inks during ink agitation carried out to prevent their settlement.

f) Ink supply valves
Located halfway between the ink tanks and the ink tubes, the ink supply valves prevent the leakage of inks that
might otherwise be caused by the opening of the ink tubes on the side of the ink tanks during their replacement.
The ink supply valves are caused to open and close by the valve open/close mechanism that is activated by
driving the valve motors.
The ink tank unit comprises two tank bases, each integrated for a set of three colors, and six-color ink tubes.
The color-specific ink supply valves are linked with the valve cams so they will open and close at the same time
for all colors.

2.3.2.5 Purge Unit
2.3.2.5.1 Functions of Purge Unit
To maintain high print quality, the purge unit performs maintenance of the nozzles o the printhead.
The purge unit supports a capping function, cleaning function, and ink supply function.
0013-8022
a) Capping function
The capping function presses the cap of the purge unit against the face plate on the nozzle section of the
printhead to prevent nozzle drying and dust adhesion.
Capping is performed when printing is complete, at the start of the suction operation, and when switching to the
standby state due to an error.
The capping function also establishes the ink passage between the printhead and purge unit.
b) Cleaning function
The cleaning function restores the printhead to the state where ink can be easily discharged from nozzles. This
function includes the following three types of operations.
- Wiping operation
This operation is performed to remove paper fibers and dried ink from to the face plate.
- Pumping operation
This operation is performed to remove ink from the nozzles and fill the nozzles with fresh ink.
- Maintenance jet operation
This operation is performed to spray ink from the nozzles to the cap, borderless ink jet tray, an paper to remove
bubbles in the nozzles and dust and other foreign particles.
c) Ink supply function

a) Caps
The caps cap the nozzle assembly in the printhead during cleaning. The part of the caps that comes into contact
with the face plate of the nozzle assembly is made of rubber. Two caps are in position to meet the printhead
mounted on the printhead (six trains of nozzles).
These caps cap the nozzle assembly to suck inks from the printhead by means of the suction pump.
The caps are elevated by the cap cam that is driven by the purge motor when the carriage moves to the home
position, capping the nozzle assembly to protect it.

b) Wipers
The wipers are driven by the purge motor to wipe the face of the printhead.
A pair of two wiper blades are installed to ensure wiping performance.
The wiping operation operates on a slide wiping basis, sliding the wiper blades via wiper cams through the
rotation (normal) of the purge motor. Wiping is executed by the wiper blades moving at a constant speed to the
front of the printer after the end of a print or suction operation.
A wiper blade set perpendicularly to the head wipes the entire face of the printhead, followed by a narrower
blade wiping the nozzle assembly.
The wiper blades are cleaned after wiping before they are replaced at the wiping position to maintain wiping
performance.
Wiper blade cleaning is carried out by scraping off the inks that have been wipe off from the head with the ink
scraper. The wiper blade is subjected to wet wiping, whereby it is pressed against an absorber impregnated with
glycerin for added wiping removal performance. The quantity of glycerin used (tank capacity: 50 mL) is
managed by counting the number of times the wiper blade has been pressed against the absorber. When this
count falls to equal any of the following values, either a replacement warning (continued print available) or
replacement required indication (service call error) is issued:

c) Pump
The pump (suction pump) is a tube pump that pressurizes the ink tubes with rotating rollers to generate a
negative pressure for sucking inks.
A single tube is sequentially pressurized by a pair of rotating rollers to control the level of ink suction. The
timing at which the rotating rollers rotate is detected by the pump cam sensor, with the distance of rotation being
controlled by the driving of the purge motor.

0013-7525
a) Maintenance cartridge
The maintenance cartridge holds about 1000 mL of used inks (about 867 g: including the evaporation of
moisture from the used inks).
b) Used maintenance cartridge ink detection
Used maintenance cartridge ink detection is monitored with regard to a dot count.
When the used ink reaches 80% of the cartridge capacity, the waning message "Maintenance C Space Check"
is displayed to tell that the maintenance cartridge is nearly full.
Further use of the maintenance cartridge will cause the appearance of the message "Replace Maintenance
Cartridge" to report that the maintenance cartridge is full.
When this error is displayed, the printer assumes that the used ink tank is full, shutting down its operation even
while it is printing until the maintenance cartridge is replaced.
The maintenance cartridge houses EEPROM, so that engine firmware can control the status of the maintenance
cartridge by writing to and reading from the EEPROM content.

0013-9654
Do not remove the printhead once they are installed, as this may cause the nozzles to dry out or accumulate
foreign matter. Also the head must be capped and stay in the carriage while transporting the printer. In spite of
this precaution, shocks incurred during transportation can still damage the print heads. Print the "Nozzle Check"
before moving the printer, print the "Nozzle Check" after installing in a new location, and compare the two
printouts. If any deterioration is evident in the output quality, replace the printhead with new ones.
This subsection describes how to transport the printer.
When moving the printer to another place on the same floor of the building, move it slowly so that it does not
receive any shocks. Follow the steps shown in "1. Moving the printer on the same floor".
When moving it elsewhere, follow the steps shown in "2. How to transport the printer to a different floor".
Always hold the carrying handles at the bottom of the printer when lifting and moving the printer. Holding the
printer by its cover can deform the cover.
Moving or transport operations where the printer needs to be temporarily tilted or stood upright must be
performed by service personnel.
1. Moving the printer on the same floor
1) Turn off the [Power] button, and check that the heads are capped.
2) Open the upper cover, and mount the belt stopper.
When mounting the belt stopper, be careful not to move the carriage by applying too much pressure. If the
carriage moves when the heads are capped, the rubber part of the cap may touch the nozzles on the heads and
damage the printhead.
3) Close the upper cover.
4) Remove the roll holder from the roll holder slot.
5) Remove the interface cable and power cord from the printer.
6) If the printer is mounted on a stand, unlock the casters on the stand.
7) Hold the printer carrying handle at the bottom, and then slowly move the printer.
If the printer is subjected to strong vibrations when it is moved, it can cause ink leakage or damage to the
printhead. Be sure to move the printer slowly and carefully.
2. How to transport the printer to a different floor
Follow the steps shown in a) When the printer is operating properly. When the printer is not operating properly
due to breakdown or a power-supply problem, follow the steps shown in b) When the printer is not operating
properly.

To prevent the waste ink from leaking, drain the ink, and then remove the maintenance cartridge. Package the
removed maintenance cartridge so that the waste ink does not leak from it.
1) Turn on the [Power] button on the printer.
2) Remove the roll holder from the roll holder slot.
3) Enter the Main menu, and then select "Maintenance" > "Move Printer". Follow the instructions in the
messages, and remove all of the ink tanks.
Put the removed ink tanks in the plastic bag with the ink supply part upward and close the opening.
It takes about 4 minutes to complete the "Move Printer" operation.
- "Move Printer" cannot be selected when "MTCart Full Soon" is displayed.
In this case, replace the maintenance cartridge first.
- Never disconnect the power cord, or open the covers while the "Move Printer" operation is in progress since
this can cancel the operation. If the "Move Printer" operation is canceled while in progress, the printer will
remain in offline mode, and it will not switch to online mode. "Ink
Filling" is performed when the power is turned back on after canceling so repeat "Move Printer" from the
beginning.
4) Once the "Move Printer" operation is completed, turn off the [Power] button.
5) Open the upper cover, check that the heads are capped, and then use the belt stopper to secure the carriage in
place. (PRODUCT DESCRIPTION > Safety and Precautions > Other Precautions > Handling the Printer >
Fixing the carriage.)
When mounting the belt stopper, be careful not to move the carriage by applying too much pressure. If the
carriage moves when the heads are capped, the rubber part of the cap may touch the nozzles on the heads and
damage the printhead.
6) Close the upper cover.
7) Disconnect the interface cable and power cord from the printer.
8) Wait 15 minutes after "Move Printer" and then remove the maintenance cartridge and package them so that
used ink does not leak from them.
Check that used ink is no longer leaking after removing the maintenance cartridge. If it is leaking, install the

4.3.17 Draining the Ink
0012-6385
There are two methods of removing the ink, using a manual method or automatic method.
When the ink is drained, the ink inside the ink passage totaling about228g(about38g x 6colors) is drained as
waste ink.
To prevent ink leaks, be sure to always remove the ink inside the ink passage when disassembling or
transporting the parts of the ink passage section.
1. Automatic ink drainage
Automatic ink drainage is performed by going to the Main Menu and selecting "Maintenance" > "Move Printer".
It takes about 4 minutes for automatic ink drainage to be performed.
Perform automatic ink drainage again if a power outage or other cause shuts off the power during the operation
for automatic ink drainage.
2. Manual ink drainage
A syringe or other implement is used to remove the ink inside the ink passages one color at a time in the event
of a printer electrical failure, firmware error, or malfunction in supplying power to the printer.
Manual Ink Drainage Procedure
(1) Remove ink tank cover. Refer to "Disassembly/Reassembly" > "Point to Note on Disassembly and
Reassembly" > "External cover"
(2) Move the carriage onto the platen. Refer to "Disassembly/Reassembly" > "Point to Note on Disassembly and
Reassembly" > "Opening the Cap/Move the Wiper Unit".
(3) Turn the cam[1] in the direction of the arrow, and then press the link[2] to open the ink supply valve.

4.5.2 Procedure after Replacing the Feed Roller or Feed Roller Encoder
0013-9977
Feed roller eccentricity is factory-adjusted (correction of variation in the paper feed amount per rotation). It is
necessary to adjust feed roller eccentricity after replacing the feed roller or feed roller encoder.
In the service mode, perform automatic adjustment of feed roller eccentricity.
Service mode : SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > PRINT PATTERN > LF TUNING
Media type : Photo glossy paper
Media size : Media having awidth equal to or larger than that of A2-size paper
If adjustment cannot be done properly by selecting "SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > PRINT PATTERN > LF
TUNING" (auto adjustment), carry out manual adjustment.
Service mode : SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > PRINT PATTERN > LF TUNING2
Media type : Photo glossy paper
Media size : Media having awidth equal to or larger than that of A2-size paper
Check the printed pattern and enter values for adjustment.
4.5.3 Procedure after Replacing the Carriage Unit or Multi Sensor
0013-9980
a) Multi Sensor Recalibration
Since multi sensors have individual electrical specificity, the following are recalibrated at the factory, namely,
the optical axis of the sensor, the sensor gain for measuring the printhead height and color reproduction.
Accordingly, carry out the following adjustments in the service mode whenever replacing the carriage unit or
multi sensor.
The multi sensor reference plate must be replaced at the same time whenever the carriage or the multi
sensor is being replaced.
-Service mode : SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > GAP CALIB.
-Service mode : SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > PRINT PATTERN > OPTICAL AXIS
Media type : Photo glossy paper
Media size : Media having a width equal toor larger then that of A2-size paper
4-33
Chapter 4
4.5.4 Procedure after Replacing the Head Management Sensor
0012-6394
Since the distance between the head management sensor and the carriage unit varies among printers, the optical
axis is factory-adjusted to adjust the non-discharging detection position. When you have replaced the head
management sensor or performed assembly/reassembly of surrounding parts that can change the distance
between the head management sensor and the carriage unit, reasjustment is required
Peform the readjustment in the service mode.
Service mode : SERVICE MODE > ADJUST > NOZZLE CHK POS.

1. Overview
Targets of troubleshooting are classified into the troubles displayed on the LCD (i.e., warnings, errors, and
service calls) and the troubles not displayed on the LCD.
Warnings and errors are displayed on the printer's LCD along with a code comprising alphanumeric characters.
2. Precautions for Troubleshooting
1) Check the environmental conditions and the media used.
2) Before starting troubleshooting, check that the connectors and cables are connected properly.
3) If you repair the printer with its external panel detached without disconnecting the AC cord from the outlet,
take great care to prevent electric shock and short-circuiting of PC boards.
4) Countermeasures to take after completion of troubleshooting are described starting with the most probable
component that can cause the trouble determined by troubleshooting. If there are two or more equally
probable components, countermeasures are described starting with the component that requires the easiest
repair. After performing each countermeasure step, carry out test printing to check whether the problem has
been solved. If not solved, try the next countermeasure step.
5) After completion of troubleshooting, check that all the necessary connectors and screws have been
installed securely.
6) After completion of replacement or repair of a component, be sure to carry out test printing to make sure
that the trouble has been solved.

7.2 Special Mode
7.2.1 Special Modes for Servicing
This printer supports the following special modes in addition to the service mode:
- PCB replacement mode
- Download mode
- Counter display mode
0014-3355
1. PCB replacement mode
This mode is used when replacing the main PCB or MC relay PCB.
By executing this mode,
- Backup data of the settings and counter values stored in the MC relay PCB are moved to the new main PCB.
- The data such as the settings and counter values are copied to the MC relay PCB.
a) Entering the PCB replacement mode
Follow the same procedure as that for entering the service mode.
(With the "Paper Source" button and "Information" button pressed down, turn on the "Power" button.)
When the printer starts up, compare the serial number memorized in the main PCB's EEPROM with that
memorized in the MC relay PCB's EEPROM. If they do not match, or no serial number is memorized in either
EEPROM, enter the PCB replacement mode.
While you are in the PCB replacement mode, the MESSAGE LED, roll media LED, and ONLINE LED are lit.
b) Procedure
Select "CPU BOARD" or "MC BOARD" using the [
] and [
] buttons, and then press the [OK] button
to determine it.
- CPU BOARD
Select this after replacing the main PCB.
The data in the MC relay PCB is copied to the main PCB.
- MC BOARD
Select this before replacing the main PCB.
The data in the main PCB is copied to the MC relay PCB.
Use this when the MC relay PCB is a new one.
c) Exiting the PCB replacement mode
Turning off the Power button of the printer allows you to exit the PCB replacement mode.
For details on how to replace the PCB, see Parts Replacement Procedure > Disassembly/Reassembly > Points
to Note on Disassembly and Reassembly > Boards.
2. Download mode
Use this mode only when updating the firmware without performing initialization.
a) Entering the download mode
1) Turning off the Power button of the printer.
2) With the "Stop" and "Information" buttons pressed down, turn on the Power button of the printer.
* Keep pressing the above buttons until "Initializing" appears on the display.
7-32
Chapter 7
b) Procedure
When "Download Mode/Send Firmware" is shown on the display, transfer the firmware.
When downloading of the firmware is completed, the printer is turned off automatically.
3. Counter display mode
Use this mode to view only printer counter information.
a) Invoking counter display mode
1) Press the [MENU] button to keep [Information] > [System Info] selected.
2) Press the [ ] button whole holding down the [MENU] button + [OK] button to invoke counter display
mode.
b) How to view counter display mode
- S/N: Unit serial number
- CNT: Number of copies printed in A4 terms (unit: copies)

0014-1949
The printer indicates errors using the display and LEDs.
If an error occurs during printing, the printer status is also displayed on the status monitor of the printer driver.
The following three types of errors are displayed on the display:
- Warning
Status where the print operation can be continued without remedying the cause of the problem. This can,
however, adversely affect the printing results.
- Error
Status where the print operation is stopped, and the regular operation cannot be recovered until the cause of the
problem is remedied.
- Service call error
When a service call error occurs, the error is not cleared and the error indication remains on the operation panel
even if the printer is powered off and on again. (Occurrence of the service call error is indicated again at poweron.)
This measure is taken to prevent user's recovery of the service call error and damages to the printer.
Service call errors can be cleared, however, by starting up the printer in the service mode.
For how to take actions against warnings and errors, refer to "Troubleshooting".
