xii
Precautions
Precautions
Always observe the following general precautions when installing and servicing
the ColorPASS:
•
Report any shipping damage.
If there is any evidence of shipping or handling damage to the packing boxes or their
contents, save the damaged boxes and parts, call the shipper immediately to file a claim,
and notify your authorized service/support center.
•
Never alter an existing network without permission.
The ColorPASS will probably be connected to an existing Local Area Network (LAN)
based on Ethernet hardware. The network is the link between the customer’s computer,
existing laser printers, and other prepress equipment. Never disturb the LAN by breaking
or making a network connection, altering termination, installing or removing
networking hardware or software, or shutting down networked devices without the
knowledge and express permission of the system or network administrator or the shop
supervisor.
•
Never assign an IP address in ColorPASS Network Setup.
Only the network administrator should assign an IP address to a network device.
Assigning the ColorPASS an incorrect IP address may cause unpredictable errors on any
or all devices connected to the network.
•
Always disconnect power before opening the ColorPASS.
•
Use care when handling parts of the ColorPASS, as some edges on the unit may be sharp.
For example, be careful when:
• Accessing the DVD drive (keep the drive door closed when not in use)
• Plugging in cables at the back of the unit
• Removing the panels
•
Follow standard electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions while working on the internal
components.
Static is always a concern when servicing electronic devices. It is highly unlikely that the
area around the copier and the ColorPASS is static-free. Carpeting, leather-soled shoes,
synthetic clothing fibers, silks, and plastics may generate a static charge of more than
10,000 volts. Static discharge is capable of destroying the circuits etched in silicon
microchips, or dramatically shortening their life span. By observing standard precautions,
you may avoid extra service calls and save the cost of a new board.
When possible, work on a ground-connected antistatic mat. Wear an antistatic
grounding strap, grounded at the same place as the antistatic mat. If that is not possible:
• Attach a grounding strap to your wrist. Attach the other end to a good ground.
xiii
Preface
• When you unpack the ColorPASS from the carton for the first time, touch a metal area
of the copier to discharge the static on your body.
• Before you remove the side panel(s) and handle internal components, touch a metal
part of the ColorPASS.
• Leave new electronic components inside their antistatic bags until you are ready to
install them. When you remove components from an antistatic bag, place them on a
grounded antistatic surface, component-side up.
• When you remove an electronic component, place it into an antistatic bag
immediately. Do not walk across a carpet or vinyl floor while carrying an unprotected
board.
• Do not damage or remove the gaskets affixed to one edge of the side panels and around
the DVD (digital video disk) drive enclosure. The gaskets are designed to reduce
possible electromagnetic interference (EMI).
• Handle printed circuit boards by their opposing edges only, and avoid touching the
contacts on the edge of the board.
• Protect the thermal material on the base of the heatsink. If you remove the CPU
cooling assembly (for instance, when transferring the CPU to a new motherboard),
avoid touching the thermal material on the base of the heatsink. When setting the
heatsink aside, set it base-side-up.
• Never set any liquid on or near the ColorPASS or the copier.
Tools you will need
To install or service the ColorPASS, you should bring the following tools and parts:
• ESD wrist grounding strap and antistatic mat
• Wire cutters
• Needlenose pliers
• #0 and #1 Phillips head screwdrivers (non-magnetic)
• Flathead screwdriver
You should also bring this guide, documentation for any optional service kits you may be
installing, and any technical notes for the ColorPASS.

Introduction
The ColorPASS adds computer connectivity and highly efficient Adobe PostScript 3
printing capability to copiers. It is optimized for high-speed network communications,
processing, rasterization, and printing of continuous tone color and monochrome pages.
Features
The ColorPASS, as an integral part of the customer’s printing system, enables
users to:
• Send images over AppleTalk, TCP/IP, and IPX networks to print on
ColorPASS-supported devices.
• Spool print jobs and select a printing priority for each job. Users can control spooled
print jobs sent to the ColorPASS with remote user software running on networked PC
and Mac OS computers.
• Print files in color, gray-scale, and black-and-white.
• Use the copier as a high-resolution color scanner with Fiery Scan™ software.
• Use 136 resident fonts (126 Adobe Type 1 PostScript and 10 TrueType), plus two
Adobe Multiple Master fonts used for font substitution when printing PDF files.
Fiery Downloader™ or any third-party LaserWriter downloader, such as the Adobe
Font Downloader, can be used to download additional fonts.
• Use built-in ColorWise® color management and NetWise™ network features.

Introduction
How the ColorPASS operates
The ColorPASS enables the customer to use a copier as a printer and scanner. Users can
print to the ColorPASS from networked PCs running Microsoft Windows, from
networked Mac OS computers, and from networked UNIX workstations running
TCP/IP.
The custom-designed boards and system software of the ColorPASS are responsible for
efficient image processing and printing controls. The main functions of components and
software are described in the following paragraphs.
The ColorPASS uses specialized circuit boards, the motherboard, and the copier interface
board to process image data for printing and scanning images.
The motherboard includes a 2GHz CPU that controls the image data transfer to and
from the copier interface board and runs the interpreter. The interpreter rasterizes the
page description file and then compresses the image pattern into memory.
The interpreter sends compressed raster data through the image frame buffer memory to
the copier interface board. The copier interface board decompresses the image data and
sends it to the copier through the copier interface cable. The raster data supplied to the
laser in the copier charges the drum and renders the final image on paper at full copier
speed.
High-speed DIMMs (dual in-line memory modules) on the motherboard hold the image
data during printing. The ColorPASS is configured with two 256MB DIMMs for a total
of 512MB of memory.
When Fiery Scan uses the copier as a scanner, the ColorPASS acquires red, green, and
blue (RGB) image data from the copier, stores it in memory, and transmits it to the
computer that requested the scan.

Checking the customer site
Checking the customer site
Before you install the ColorPASS, check site conditions and inform the customer of any
installation requirements.
Copier model
❑ Is the service mode COPIER>OPTION>REMOTE set to 2?
❑ Is there space near the copier for the ColorPASS?
Make sure that there is space for the ColorPASS. Allow enough space at the back panel
for the cables to route easily and at the side panel so that the ColorPASS does not
interfere with use of or service to the copier (such as clearing a paper jam). You may need
to move the copier away from the wall so that its interface connectors are accessible.

Back panel
ColorPASS
20cm+ (8 in.)
Side panel
❑ Does the copier require service or adjustments?
Print the copier color test page before you install the ColorPASS.
If the copied image indicates that the copier needs adjustment, inform the customer.
After getting approval, complete the copier service needed.
Power
❑ Is there a dedicated, grounded electrical outlet for the ColorPASS near the copier?
Locate the grounded electrical outlet that will supply power to the ColorPASS. You
should not run the ColorPASS and the copier on the same circuit. Make sure to use a
surge suppressor for the ColorPASS if the customer has provided one.
• Do not use a 3-prong adapter in a 2-hole ungrounded outlet.
• Do not use an extension cord.
• Do not plug the ColorPASS into a circuit with heating or refrigeration equipment
(including water coolers).
• Do not plug the ColorPASS into a switchable wall outlet. Doing so may result in the
ColorPASS being powered off accidentally.

Preparing for Installation
Network
❑ What is the network cable and connection type?
• Unshielded twisted pair for 100/1000BaseT
❑ Is the network connection ready and tested for ColorPASS installation?
To verify that the network is functioning before you attach the ColorPASS:
• Ask the network administrator to print a document on a shared printer over
the network.
• Ask the network administrator to verify the computer and network requirements as
specified in Quick Start Guide.
System contact person
❑ Will the person responsible for the computers and the network be available at the time
set for installation? Find out the name of the system contact person.
Setting customer expectations
If the site is ready, installation takes about one hour. The customer should be informed of
the following:
• Some nodes on the network may be unavailable for up to one hour.
• The copier may be unavailable for up to one hour.
• The network administrator needs to be available during the installation for
network connectivity.
Equipment downtime and impact on the network can be minimized if the network
administrator installs a network connector for the ColorPASS and confirms network
functionality with the connector in place before the date scheduled for the ColorPASS
installation.
• The network administrator should have a networked computer available during the
installation. The appropriate software should already be installed. Documentation for
the networked computer and the network operating software should be available.
• The network administrator should install the user software shipped with the
ColorPASS (user documentation is also included) onto networked PC and Mac OS
computers that will print to the ColorPASS.
N OTE : This guide covers hardware installation and service. It provides general
information on connecting the ColorPASS to the customer’s network. Network setup

Checking internal connections
Checking internal connections
The most common causes of hardware problems are faulty and loose connections. Before
you conclude that any board or component has failed, remove, inspect, and reseat all
appropriate connections, and then check whether the problem still occurs.
TO
CHECK BOARD AND CABLE CONNECTIONS
N OTE : Follow standard ESD precautions while servicing internal components.
1.
Make sure you have powered off the ColorPASS (see page 4-4), removed all the cables
from the back panel, and removed the left side panel (see page 4-5).
2.
Position the ColorPASS so it is resting on its side and the internal components are
facing up.
3.
Inspect the boards to make sure they are firmly seated in their motherboard connectors.
Press down firmly on the boards to make sure each one is securely installed.
The standard board configuration includes the following (from top to bottom):
Connector PCI1—Empty
Connector PCI2—Copier interface board
Connector PCI3—Empty
Connector PCI4—Empty
Connector PCI5—Empty
4.
Inspect ribbon cables to see if they are intact.
Faulty ribbon cables are easily overlooked. Check the contact point between the cable
and the connector to ensure that they have not separated. If a ribbon cable appears
damaged, substitute it with a tested cable.
5.
Make sure that all ribbon cables and power supply cables are seated properly on
connectors (see Figure 4-6 on page 4-12).
Cable connectors are keyed to fit only when properly oriented.
6.
Make sure that the power, reset, and speaker cables are connected properly to the
motherboard. (For connector locations, see Figure 4-15 on page 4-23.)
Make sure that pin 1 of the speaker cable connector (marked with a triangle) corresponds
to pin 1 of the motherboard SPKER connector (see Figure 4-15 on page 4-23).
7.
Check the front panel fan cable and the CPU fan cable connections to the motherboard.
Gently straighten any bent pins with a pair of needlenose pliers. If, after tightening the
connections, you are still experiencing problems, it may be that one or more components
are still not getting power. If this is the case, see “Checking voltages” on page 4-43.

Service Procedures
Replacing the motherboard
Follow the procedures in this section to replace the motherboard. Failure to follow the
instructions in this section may corrupt the system (not easily repaired in the field).
If you are installing a new motherboard:
• Transfer the DIMM(s) and CPU from the old motherboard onto the new
motherboard.
• BIOS chips are not interchangeable. Do not transfer the BIOS chip from the old
motherboard onto the new motherboard. Doing so can damage the ColorPASS.
• Enter Service Mode and make sure the new motherboard solves the problem you are
troubleshooting before you update the system. (For details on Service Mode and
updating the system, see page 4-29.) Updating the system permanently customizes the
new motherboard. Once customized, the motherboard cannot be returned to
inventory or installed in another ColorPASS. If the new motherboard does not solve
the problem, do not update the system. Return the new motherboard and unused
dongle to inventory.
• Do not reinstall system software before updating the system. Doing so can result in a
permanent “Invalid License” error.
• Do not replace the HDD and the motherboard at the same time. Doing so in the
wrong order, and without updating the system, will cause the system to not function.
It is unlikely that both the HDD and the motherboard are defective; therefore, avoid
replacing both to solve one problem. If troubleshooting strategies (checking cables and
connections, and so forth) do not solve the problem and you suspect either the HDD
or the motherboard are at fault, use the following order to troubleshoot: replace the
HDD, install system software, and then check to see if the problem still exists. If it
does, perform other procedures, such as replacing the motherboard.
• Update the system using the dongle and the Restore/Update Server Software CD. For
details on updating the system, see page 4-29.

Replace the following board in its motherboard connector:
• Copier interface board in motherboard connector PCI2 (see page 4-18)
N OTE : When installing boards, make sure that the board connectors are properly aligned
with their connectors on the motherboard.
5.
Make sure all board mounting bracket screws for boards occupying back panel slots are
secured. Press down firmly on the top of the board as you insert each screw.
N OTE : Make sure unused slots have slot covers installed. Uncovered slots reduce the air
flow and could cause the ColorPASS to overheat.
4-28
6.
Reassemble the ColorPASS (see page 4-14).
7.
If you reinstalled the old motherboard, verify functionality (see page 4-16).
8.
If you replaced the motherboard with a new motherboard, proceed to “Verifying new
motherboard installation and updating the system” on page 4-29.

Motherboard
Verifying new motherboard installation and updating the system
After you install a new motherboard and reassemble the system, you need to:
• Verify the new motherboard installation in Service Mode (requires the dongle shipped
with the new motherboard).
Service Mode is a temporary state that allows you, before updating the system, to verify
that installing a new motherboard solves a problem with the ColorPASS (For reasons
to install a new motherboard, see Chapter 5, “Troubleshooting.”) Service Mode ends
automatically when you update the system (described below).
If you determine while in Service Mode that the problem you are troubleshooting is
not solved by installing a new motherboard, do not update the system. Reinstall the
old motherboard and return the new motherboard and dongle to inventory.
For detailed instructions, see “Entering Service Mode” on page 4-30.
• Update the system (requires the dongle and the Restore/Update Server Software CD
shipped with the new motherboard).
Update the system after verifying it in Service Mode. The ColorPASS will not function
permanently until you update the system.
The update process uses the Restore/Update Server Software CD along with the
dongle to transfer required settings from the old motherboard onto the new
motherboard via the HDD.
N OTE : Do not update the system prematurely. Update the system only after verifying it in
Service Mode. When you want to enter Service Mode, make sure the Restore/Update
Server Software CD is not installed in the DVD drive. If you boot the ColorPASS with
the Restore/Update Server Software CD in the DVD drive and the dongle attached to
the parallel port, the system will be updated automatically and the dongle will be
expended. Service Mode is unavailable once the dongle is expended. Remember that
once the system is updated, the motherboard cannot be used in another system.
For detailed instructions, see “To update the system” on page 4-32.

Service Procedures
Hard disk drive
The factory-installed HDD is formatted and loaded with system software, network
drivers, and printer fonts. The HDD is also used to store spooled print jobs. Available
space on the HDD is displayed on the Control Panel.
If you replace the HDD with a new one, you will need to install system software on the
new HDD. (Spare HDDs are shipped without system software installed.)
Do not replace the HDD and the motherboard at the same time. Doing so in the wrong
order, and without updating the system (see page 4-26), will cause the system to not
function.
It is unlikely that both the HDD and the motherboard are defective; therefore, avoid
replacing both to solve one problem. If troubleshooting strategies (checking cables and
connections, and so forth, see page 4-11) do not solve the problem and you suspect
either the HDD or the motherboard are at fault, use the following order to troubleshoot:
replace the HDD, install system software, and then check to see if the problem persists. If
it does, perform other procedures, such as replacing the motherboard (see page 4-26).
Proper handling
Improper handling can damage the HDD. Handle the HDD with extreme care:
• Use proper ESD practices when grounding yourself and the ColorPASS.
• Keep magnets and magnetic-sensitive objects away from the HDD.
• Do not remove the screws on top of the HDD. Loosening these screws voids
the warranty.
• Never drop, jar, bump, or put excessive pressure on the HDD.
• Handle the HDD by its sides and avoid touching the printed circuit board.
• Allow the HDD to reach room temperature before installation.

Service Procedures
System software service
System software resides on the HDD and is backed up the first time you power on the
ColorPASS from the factory. If necessary, you can restore the backup using the Restore
system option on the Restore/Update Server Software CD. This option allows you to
restore system software to the default configuration.
System software is also provided on two CDs that can be used to upgrade the system
software to a newer version or to reinstall the current version of the system software.
This section describes how to restore a backup of the system software using the
Restore/Update Server Software CD (see page 4-57) and how to install system software
from the system software CDs (see page 4-59).
Keep in mind the following when installing or restoring system software:
• Job Log—The list of jobs in the Job Log, any jobs in the queues, and archived jobs are
deleted. The network administrator can use Fiery Spooler to save a current list of jobs
(not the actual jobs) from the Job Log.
• Fonts—All fonts on the HDD are deleted when you install or restore system software.
Resident fonts are reinstalled when you reinstall or restore system software. Any
customer-supplied fonts will need to be reinstalled by the network administrator using
Fiery Downloader.
To determine which additional fonts were downloaded to the ColorPASS, print the
Font List before you install or restore the system software and again after you complete
the system software installation. Any fonts not listed after installation will need to be
reinstalled. For more information, see the Printing Guide.
• Configuration—Because the existing setup configuration is lost when you install or
restore system software, make sure to print a Configuration page before installing or
restoring system software so that you can reconfigure the settings in Setup (see
page 3-4).
• Adobe Acrobat and Command WorkStation––If Acrobat and Command
WorkStation software are installed on the ColorPASS, they will be deleted when you
install or restore system software. After installing or restoring system software, you
must reinstall the Acrobat and Command WorkStation software. For enabling the
DocBuilder Pro features of Command WorkStation and for more information, see
the User Software Installation Guide or the document included in the option kit.
• Other HDD content––Custom simulations, custom outputs saved on the HDD,
calibration data, FreeFormTM masters, and cached PPML objects are deleted when you
install or restore system software. Print FreeForm masters and save a copy of any
custom simulations before installing or restoring software so that this content can be
restored later. For more information, see the Color Guide.
4-56
4
System software service
• Compatibility—When upgrading the system software, make sure the latest user
software is installed onto all computers that print to the ColorPASS. Using
incompatible versions of the system and user software may result in system problems.
Restoring backup system software
Restoring backup system software returns the system to its default configuration and is
useful for troubleshooting system problems. It is a faster and more convenient method
than reinstalling system software from the system software CDs. If restoring backup fails
or if you are replacing the HDD, updating to a more recent version of the system
software, or changing languages, then you need to reinstall system software from the
system software CDs.
N OTE : Do not interrupt the system while the Restore function is in progress. If you do,
the restore process may fail and you will have to reinstall system software from the CDs.
TO
RESTORE BACKUP SYSTEM SOFTWARE
1.
If you have not done so already, first give the network administrator the opportunity to
print the Job Log and save any custom simulations. Also, print the following from the
Functions menu (if possible):
• Configuration page—lists any installed options, patches, or upgrades; records the
customer’s current Setup configuration. The Setup configuration is reset to the default
configuration when you restore the backup system software.
• Font List—lists the fonts currently on the HDD. These include the original fonts that
came installed on the ColorPASS plus any additional fonts that the customer may have
installed. All fonts are deleted when you restore or install system software. The network
administrator can use Fiery Downloader to reinstall customer-supplied fonts after
system software reinstalls the original fonts. To determine which customer-supplied
fonts need to be reinstalled, print the Font List before you restore or install system
software and again after you restore or install system software. Any fonts not listed after
restoration or installation need to be reinstalled.

This chapter does not attempt to provide troubleshooting information for attached
computers such as PCs or Mac OS computers, for copiers, or for extensive networks.
You should refer problems in these areas to the appropriate service departments and
network administrators.
When performing the service procedures described in this chapter, follow the precautions
listed in “Precautions” on page xiii.
The terms “replace” and “replacing” are typically used throughout this manual to mean
reinstallation of existing components. Install new components only when necessary. If
you determine that a component you have removed is not faulty, make sure to reinstall it
back in the system.

Troubleshooting
Preliminary on-site checkout
Most problems with the ColorPASS are caused by loose board or cable connections;
therefore, this section describes the quick checks you can do to locate and fix obvious
problems. This section first describes how to eliminate any problems with external
connections to the back of the ColorPASS, and then addresses checking internal board
and cable connections. It is a good idea to check external and internal connections before
replacing any components.
N OTE : First, verify that the network is functioning, no unauthorized software or hardware
is installed on the ColorPASS, and there are no problems with a particular print job or
application. The on-site administrator can help you verify these issues.
For problems that persist after you have checked the external and internal connections,
this section goes on to provide a comprehensive list of internal and external checks that
may help you fix the problem.
This section includes the following:
• “Checking external connections” on page 5-3
Describes the quick checks you can do to make sure the problem is not caused by a
loose connection at the back of the ColorPASS.
• “Checking internal components” on page 5-4
Describes the quick checks you can do to make sure the problem is not caused by a
loose board or cable connection inside the ColorPASS.
• “Inspecting the system” on page 5-5
Provides a more comprehensive checklist for checking the ColorPASS internally and
externally. If your initial checks fail, you may want to go through this checklist before
concluding that you need to replace a cable or component.
To troubleshoot problems according to specific symptoms, see Table 5-2 on page 5-13.
Locate symptoms listed in the table to help you determine possible causes and steps to
remedy them.

Troubleshooting
Checking internal components
To check the internal components, you must remove the side and front panels
of the ColorPASS.
Before you remove the ColorPASS’s panels, be aware of the safety precautions you should
take when handling the ColorPASS. Use ESD precautions when handling printed circuit
boards and electronic components. To review the safety precautions, see “Precautions” on
page xiii.
Use the guidelines in Chapter 4, “Service Procedures.” when disassembling, checking,
and reassembling the ColorPASS.
TO
CHECK INTERNAL COMPONENTS
1.
Shut down and open the ColorPASS (page 4-4 and page 4-5).
2.
Before you touch any components inside the ColorPASS, attach a grounding strap to your
wrist and discharge any static electricity on your body by touching a metal part of the
ColorPASS.
3.
Inspect the inside of the ColorPASS (see page 4-11).
Make sure no foreign materials have been dropped into the chassis.
• Look for obviously loose boards and reseat each board securely in its connector on
the motherboard.
• Look for cables that are obviously loose. Reseat each connector firmly.
• Make sure each connector is properly aligned with its mating connector. If the pins are
offset from each other, the board affected will not function properly.
4.
5-4
Reassemble the ColorPASS and verify functionality (see page 4-14 and page 4-16).

Preliminary on-site checkout
Inspecting the system
If your initial checks of the cable and board connections do not fix the problem, you may
need to inspect the system on a component-by-component basis, as described
in Table 5-1. A comprehensive inspection allows you to verify that each hardware
component is properly installed and configured, and helps you avoid replacing expensive
components unnecessarily.
If the system you are servicing does not meet a condition listed in Table 5-1 and it is not
obvious what action(s) you should take to fix the problem (for example, if the system
hangs before reaching Idle), locate the symptom in Table 5-2 on page 5-13 and perform
the suggested action(s) given for the condition.

Troubleshooting
Error messages and conditions
To address specific error messages or conditions, see Table 5-2 on page 5-13. Use the
table to locate the problem or symptom you want to fix, read about the possible causes,
and then perform the suggested actions to solve the problem.
N OTE : Do not replace the HDD and the motherboard at the same time. Doing so in the
wrong order, and without updating the system, will cause the system to not function.
It is unlikely that both the HDD and the motherboard are defective; therefore, avoid
replacing both to solve one problem. If troubleshooting strategies (checking cables and
connections, and so forth.) do not solve the problem and you suspect either the HDD or
the motherboard are at fault, use the following order to troubleshoot: replace the HDD,
install system software, and then check to see if the problem still exists. If it does, perform
other procedures, such as replacing the motherboard.
If replacing a component does not correct the problem, make sure you install the old
component back in the ColorPASS.
