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."

1.7 Safety and Precautions
1.7.1 Safety Precautions
1.7.1.1 Moving Parts
0013-3746
Moving parts of the printer include the carriage unit driven by the carriage motor, the carriage belt, the ink tube, the flexible cable, the feed roller drives the feed
motor, the pinch roller, and the purge unit driven by the purge motor.
To prevent accidents, the top cover of the printer is locked during printing. If the top cover is opened in the online/offline mode, the carriage motor, feed motor,
and other driving power supplies are turned off.

1.7.1.2 Adhesion of Ink
0013-3747
(1) Ink passages
Be careful not to touch the ink passages of the printer to prevent the printer, workbench, ands, and clothes from being stained with ink.
The ink flows through the ink tank unit, carriage unit, purge unit, maintenance jet tray, maintenance cartridge, and the ink tubes that relay ink to individual units.
F-1-27
1-17
Chapter 1
- Although the ink is not harmful to the human body, it contains organic solvents.
Ink may contaminate the surrounding parts. Carry out the work with due caution. If your hands are stained with ink, wash them with a plenty of water.
Be careful not to allow the ink to get into your mouth or eyes.
If the ink gets into your eyes, flush them with water well and see a doctor.
In case of accidental ingestion of a large quantity of ink, see a doctor immediately.
Since this ink contains pigment, stains will not come out of clothing.
(2)Ink Mist
Since the printhead prints by squirting ink onto the media, a minute amount of ink mist is generated in the printing unit during printing. The generated ink mist is
collected in the printer by the airflow. However, uncollected ink mist may stain the platen, carriage unit, exterior, and purge unit.
These stains may soil the print media or hands and clothes when servicing the printer. Wipe them off carefully with a soft, well-wrung cloth.

1.7.1.3 Electric Parts
0013-3748
The electric parts of the printer are activated when the printer is connected to the AC power supply.
At the left rear of the printer are the main controller, power supply, and interface connector. The carriage relay PCB is incorporated in the carriage unit, and the
operation panel is on the upper right top cover.
When serving the printer with the cover removed, be extremely careful to avoid electric shock and shorting electrical devices.

1.7.2 Other Precautions
1.7.2.1 Printhead
0013-1929
1. How to Handle the Printhead
Do not open the printhead package until you are ready to install the head.
When installing the printhead in the printer, hold the knob[1] and then remove the protective cap 1[2] and protective cap 2[3] in that order.
Do not reattach the protective cap 2[3] to the printhead because the cap may damage the nozzles[4].
To prevent the nozzles from getting clogged with foreign matter or dried ink, install the printhead immediately after you remove the protective caps.
Also make sure to press down the locking lever of the printhead until you feel a click.
In addition, to prevent clogging of the nozzles with foreign matter and improper supply of ink, never touch the nozzles[4] or ink port[6], or wipe it with tissue paper
or anything else.
Do not touch Electriacl contact[5].
Also, never attempt to disassemble/reassemble the printhead or wash it with water.
MEMO:
If the nozzles are clogged or an ink suction problem occurs, white lines can appear on the printout a constant frequency or color dulling can occur. If this problem
is not resolved by cleaning operations, replace the printhead with a new one.

[5] Electrical contact
[3] protective cap 2
[6] ink port
2. Capping
The printer will perform the capping operation when printing has ended or during standby due to an error, in order to protect the printhead and avoid ink leakage.
If the power cord is accidentally unplugged, turn off the Power button, reconnect the power cord, and then turn on the Power button. Confirm that the printer starts
up properly and enters to the "Online" or "Offline" status, and then power off the printer using the Power button.
Improper "capping operation" may cause clogged nozzles due to dried ink or ink leakage from the printhead.
3. When the printer is not used for a long time
Keep the printhead installed in the printer even when it is not used for an extended period of time.
If the printhead is left uninstalled, a printing failure may arise from closed nozzles due to depositing of foreign matter or dried ink when it is reinstalled.
Even if the head remains installed, the nozzle may dry out and cause a printing failure if the ink is drained for transport.
4. Conductivity of Ink
The ink used in this printer is electrically conductive. If ink leaks to into the mechanical unit, wipe clean with a soft, well-wrung damp cloth. If ink leaks onto
electrical units, wipe them completely using tissue paper. If you cannot remove ink completely, replace the electrical units with new ones.
If electrical units are powered with ink leaked onto them, the units may damage.
Never connect the power cord when ink has leaded onto the electrical units.

Chapter 1
1.7.2.2 Ink Tank
0013-1924
1. Unpacking the Ink Tank
Do not unpack the ink tank until you are ready to install it.
When installing the ink tank, be sure to shake it slowly 7 to 8 times before unpacking it. Otherwise, the ink ingredients may precipitate and degrade the print quality.
To prevent foreign matter from entering the ink port, installed the unpacked ink tank in the printer immediately.
2. Handling the Ink Tank
To prevent foreign matter from entering the ink flow path and causing ink suction and printing problems, never touch the ink port and contacts of the ink tank.
When you press down the ink tank cover, the needle enters the ink port, allowing ink to flow between the printer and ink tank.
Do not raise or lower the ink tank cover except when replacing the ink tank.

After completion of printing, the carriage is mechanically locked by the lock arm in the purge unit at the same moment the printhead is capped.
Before transporting the printer, secure the carriage at its home position using belt stoppers[1] so that the carriage does not become separated from the lock arm and
damage or ink does not leak.

F-1-33
3. Handling the Maintenance Cartridge
When removing the maintenance cartridge form the printer, use caution so that waste ink does not spatter.
4. Refilling the Printer with Ink
After removing the ink from inside the printer using the automatic or manual ink draining procedure to disassemble/reassemble or transport the printer, refill the
printer with ink as soon as possible upon completion of the work.
If the ink remaining in the printer dries up, mechanical parts may be seized and malfunction may result.

2.1.2 Print Driving
0013-5168
During printing, print signals and control signals are issued to the printhead via the carriage PCB in order to discharge ink from the nozzles.
On a printhead, six arrays of nozzles are provided in six arrays in a staggered pattern.
This printer uses a pair of printheads.
(The Y, PC, C, PGy, Gy, MBk, PM, M, Bk, R, G, B nozzles are mounted in this order from the left.)
Even-numbered nozzle data and odd-numbered nozzle data -- which are print signals -- are sent to each nozzle array in sync with the data sending clock and data
latch pulse timings.
Drive control signals include a Heat Enable signal and a Sub Heat Enable signal. The Heat Enable signal is used to discharge ink from nozzles. The Sub Heat Enable
signal is used to raise the printhead temperature to a suitable value to maintain the ink discharge amount constant.

2.2.3 Print Control
0013-4132
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 or two paths.
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 or 16 paths.
To use this mode, select "Highest" under "Print Quality" in the printer driver.

2.2.4 Print Position Adjustment Function
0012-6498
This printer has a printing position adjusting function to adjust the lateral and longitudinal printing positions and bidirectional printing position of the printhead
mounted on the carriage as well as the media feed amount.
The printing position can be adjusted in two ways: "automatic adjustment" by which the multi sensor installed at the lower left of the carriage reads the printing
position adjusting pattern and "manual adjustment" by which a print position adjusting pattern is printed with the printing conditions changed little by little to allow
the user to enter the visually checked adjustment value from the operation panel.
Printing position adjustment requires A4-size or larger roll media or cut sheet.
2.2.5 Head Management
0012-6499
This printer has a nozzle check function to detect any non-discharging nozzle. When a non-discharging nozzle is detected, the printer performs the print head cleaning operation. If the problem persists after completion of the print head cleaning operation, the non-discharged nozzles are automatically backed up by other nozzles.
Detection timing (auto):
Non-discharging nozzles are checked at the following timings:
- Power-on
- When the carriage cover is opened
- When printing starts (The check timing can be changed by selecting System Setup > Nozzle Check from the main menu.
2.2.6 Printhead Overheating Protection Control
0012-6501
This printer performs printhead overheating protection control when an abnormally high temperature is detected in the printhead.
The printhead can overheat, for instance, when the print operation continues for some time with no ink supplied to the nozzles.
The overheating protection control function prevents a print head nozzle from becoming clogged or damaged due to excessive heat.
Overheating protection control is performed based on the temperatures detected by the head temperature sensors in the nozzle arrays. If overheating is detected in
a single nozzle array, overheating protection control is performed at either of the following levels according to the temperature.
Protection level 1:
If the printhead temperature sensor detects a temperature above the limit, the carriage stops at the scan end position printer in the direction of travel according to
the carriage's scan status.
Then, wait control is performed to allow the printhead to cool naturally. When the printhead temperature drops below the prescribed value or 30 seconds have lapsed
since detection of the abnormal temperature, printing resumes.
Protection level 2:
When the head temperature sensor detects an abnormally high temperature, printing stops immediately, the carriage is moved to the home position, and the printhead
is capped. In this case, an error code is shown on the display.
2.2.7 Pause between Pages
0012-6502
To prevent ink blots form forming, this printer has a "pause between pages" function to hang down the printed paper from the platen to dry it and delivers it after
lapse of the specified wait time.
The user can set the wait time using the printer drive. This function is particularly useful for printing on film-type sheets that requires extra long time to dry.
For borderless printing, 30 seconds of drying time is automatically set.
2.2.8 White Raster Skip
To improve the printing throughput, this printer has a white raster skip function to skip the carriage scan operation for continuous blank segments in print data.
0012-6504
2.2.9 Sleep Mode
0012-6505
This printer has a Sleep mode to reduce the standby power.
The printer automatically enters the Sleep mode (Power Save mode) when neither user operation nor data reception occurs for a preset period of time in the online
2-4
Chapter 2
or offline mode.
The printer wakes from the Sleep mode when the user presses any button on the operation panel or data is received from the host computer.
The time until the printer enters the Sleep mode can be changed from the operation panel. (Default: 15 minutes)

2.3 Printer Mechanical System
2.3.1 Outline
2.3.1.1 Outline
0013-4298
The printer mechanism can be broadly divided into two major components: the ink passage and paper path.
The ink passage consists of an ink tank, a carriage unit having a printhead, a purge unit. and a maintenance cartridge unit which are used to supply, circulate, and
suck ink.
The paper path consists of a cassette pick-up unit, roll feed unit, paper feed unit to support four types of media feeding, transport, and ejection.
This section provides an overview of these mechanical components.

The ink passage consists of ink tanks, printhead, cap, waste ink collection unit, ink tubes for connecting the mechanical components, and an ink suction pump which
is operated to suck ink. These components are used to supply, circulate, and suck ink.
A schematic diagram of the ink passage (for one color) and the ink flow are shown below.

Absorbent material under the purge unit
a) Ink supply from ink tank to ink supply valve
The ink tank contains ink to be supplied to the printhead.
Ink flow from the ink tank to the ink tank supply valve due to the fluid level difference.
b) Ink flow from ink tank to sub-buffer
Ink flows from the ink tank to the sub-buffer due to the fluid level difference, and air enters the ink tank through the air passage of the sub-buffer, maintaining the
pressure inside the ink tank constant.
If the ink in the sub-buffer exceeds the predetermined level, the excessive ink flows to the absorbent material under the ink tank.
c) Ink supply from ink supply valve to printhead
Ink is supplied from the ink tank to the printhead by opening the ink supply valve, capping the head, and operating the suction pump.
The ink sucked from the caps flows to the maintenance cartridge or the waste ink absorbent material under the purge unit.
d) Ink supply during printing
During printing, the ink supply vale is held open to allow ink to flow from the ink tank to the printhead constantly due to the negative pressure generated by discharging of ink.
The waste ink used for printhead cleaning and borderless printing flows to the waste ink absorbent materials under the maintenance cartridge and purge unit in
addition to the waste ink box.
If all of ink passages are opened (no ink tank is installed, the ink supply valve is opened, and the printhead fixer lever is opened) when the ink tube is filled with
ink, the ink in the ink tube may reverse-flow due to the fluid level difference and ink may leak from the hollow needle of the ink tank.
Do not open all of the ink passages at the same time when the ink tube is filled with ink.
e) Agitation of ink in the ink tank
Ink in the ink tank is agitated to prevent precipitation of pigment-based ink in the ink tank.
This function is implemented by reverse-flowing ink to the ink tank by opening and closing the supply valve in succession. Inside the ink tank is provided with an
agitation plate to assist agitation of ink. (The agitation plate is also provided in the
- Operation timing: When a new ink tank is installed or when 168 hours have lapsed since the previous agitation (the agitation is performed irrespective of the
whether the printer is printing or cleaning its head)
- Ink supply valve opening/closing count: 30 times (every 30 seconds)
If 336 or more hours have lapsed, the ink valve opening/closing count and the time until the next agitation are changed according to the length of the tame lapsed.
2.3.2.2 Ink Tank Unit
2.3.2.2.1 Structure of Ink Tank Unit
0013-4300
a) Ink tank
Each ink tank contains 130 ml of ink (the starter ink tank supplied with the printer contains 90 ml of ink) for each color. The amount of ink is memorized in the
EEPROM mounted to the ink tank.
The amount of the ink remaining in the ink tank is detected as a dot count according to the data memorized in the EEPROM.
When the electrodes mounted to the hollow needle detect a con-conductive state, a message appears on the display to indicate that the ink is nearly empty. If the
dot count reaches the prescribed value, the ink tank is considered to be empty.
b) Ink port
When the ink tank lock lever is pressed down, the hollow needle enters the ink port (covered with a rubber plug), establishing an ink passage between the printer
and ink tank.
c) Air passage
2-7
Chapter 2
When the ink tank lever of the printer is pressed down, the hollow needle enters the air passage (covered with a rubber plug) and thus the internal pressure of the
ink tank is released, maintaining the internal pressure constant.
d) Notches for preventing incorrect insertion
The ink tanks have notches for preventing insertion. Wrong ink tanks cannot be installed in place due to these notches.
The ink tank lock lever can lowered to start ink supply only when the ink tank has been installed in place.
e) Agitation plate
The agitation plate assists the ink agitation which is performed to prevent precipitation of ink.

f) Ink supply valve
The ink supply valve is located between the ink tank and ink tube to prevent ink leakage from occurring when the ink tube on the ink tank side is opened during
replacement of the ink tank.
The ink supply valve is opened and closed by the valve open/close mechanism which is driven by the valve motor.
The ink tank unit consists of two tank bases each of which contains ink tanks for three colors and the ink tubes for six colors.
The ink supply valve for each color is driven by the valve cam though a link. Ink supply valves for all colors are opened and closed at the same time.

The carriage PCB and main controller PCB are connected with a flexible cable.
c) Carriage drive function
The carriage motor moves the carriage back and forth on the platen via the carriage belt.
d) Printhead maintenance function
The printer performs the printhead cleaning operation such as printhead wiping and suction at the home position of the carriage.
The cleaning operation accompanied by ink suction is performed only at the left cap.
e) Nozzle check function
The printer detects a non-discharging nozzle using the head management sensor attached to the maintenance jet tray by discharging ink with the carriage stopped
at the maintenance jet tray.
f) Media thickness adjustment function
If the gap between the printhead face and the media increases due to the difference in media thickness, cockling, curling, and so on, more ink mist is generated. In
reverse, if the gap decreases, the head can touch the media surface more frequently.
To maintain the proper gap, the remote lifter is driven to adjust the head height automatically according to the selected media type, media supply method, printing
conditions (borderless/priority print type), environmental conditions (temperature/humidity), and the result of measurement by the multi sensor.
The relationship between media types and head heights (from the platen) is summarized in the table below. Note that the head height is adjusted with priority given
to the media gap measured by the multi sensor.

b) Wiper unit
The wiper unit operated by the purge motor wipes the print head face.
The printer is provided with a pair of wiper blades for better wiping performance.
The wiping operation is performed by a "slide wipe" method by which the purge motor rotates (in the normal direction) to slide the wiper blade via the wiper cam.
It is performed by a constant-speed movement toward the front of the printer as viewed from the printer front.
The wiper blade, which is positioned at right angles to the print head, wipes the entire printhead face, and then the narrow blade is used to wipe the nozzle arrays.
After wiping, the wipe blades are cleaned before they are set at the wiping position so that the maximum wiping performance is obtained.
During the wiper blade cleaning, the ink removed form the head is rubbed off by the in scraper.
Absorbent material soaked with glycerin is pressed against the wiper blades to enhance the wiping performance. The amount of glycerin used (tank capacity: 50
ml) is managed by counting the number of times the wiper blade is pressed against the absorbent material. When the count reaches the following value, an advance
notice of replacement (printing can be continued) or a request for replacement (service call error) is displayed.

0013-4161
a) Maintenance cartridge
The maintenance cartridge can contain up to approximately 957 ml (approx. 1021 g ) of waste ink (including the moisture evaporation in the waste ink).
b) Detection of waste ink in maintenance cartridge
The quantity of waste ink in the maintenance cartridge is measured by counting dots.
When the quantity of waste ink collected in the maintenance cartridge reaches 80% of the cartridge capacity, a warning message "MTCart Full Soon" appears to
indicate that the maintenance cartridge is nearly full.
If printing is continued, an error message "Maint Cartridge Replace Cart" appears to indicate that the maintenance cartridge is full.
When this error occurs, the printer judges the maintenance cartridge as being full of waste ink and stops printing immediately. The printer stops even if printing is
in progress, and it will not operate until the maintenance cartridge is replaced with a new one.
The maintenance cartridge incorporates an EEPROM. The engine firmware reads and writes the contents of the EEPROM to control the maintenance cartridge
status.

Troubles subject to troubleshooting are classified into those shown on the display (warning, error, and service call) and those not shown on the display.
2. Precautions for Troubleshooting
1) Check the environmental conditions and the media used for printing.
2) Before performing troubleshooting, make sure that all connectors and cables are connected properly.
3) When servicing the printer with the external cover removed and the AC power supplied, be extremely careful to avoid electric shock and shorting electrical
devices.
4) In the following sections, the troubleshooting steps are described such that the component related to the most probable cause of the problem will be repaired or
replaced first, being followed by components with less problem probability. If multiple components have the same problem probability, the steps are described
begging with the easiest one.
After performing each step, check to see if the problem has been resolved by making test prints. If the problem persists, proceed to the next step.
5) After completion of the troubleshooting, check that all connectors and cables have been reconnected and screws have been tightened firmly.

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
0013-2122
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
7-11
Chapter 7
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.
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.

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 power-on.)
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".
