1 Operation
M2 (drum) is a motor driven by 24 VDC. It
drives the drum, toner guide roller, toner
conveyance screw, and separation claw
swing. The flywheel mechanism adopted
for M2 ensures accurate and steady
rotation.
M2 starts rotating when the START button
is pressed and stops when the specified
time lapses after completion of second
paper feeding of the last copy.
When either one of the front-left and
front-right doors of this machine opens,
MS1 (interlock MS/R) or MS2 (interlock
MS/L) actuates to stop supplying the DC
power to the motor, causing M2 to stop.

1 Operation
L1 (exposure lamp) is a xenon lamp driven
by the inverter circuit. The xenon lamp can
emit a constant light intensity and
generates less heat than other lamps, so it
does not require the light intensity control
circuit that has been used in the existing
machines, requiring no thermal protector
circuit. However, since L1 is held lit when
the exposure unit is stationary in the ADF
mode, FM9 (scanner cooling) is installed
in the read section.

PS309 (original size/2), PS310
(original size/1), and VR301 (original

2 Platen mode
When the ADF is closed and PS51
(APS timing) turns on, L1 (exposure
lamp) turns on and the CCD detects
the reflected light to detect the
original size in the main scanning
direction. Since ADF is still open at
this time, the black level of the sky
shot (outside the original) and the
white level of the original (inside the
original) are detected according to
whether an original is present. At this
time, the original size in the
sub-scanning direction is detected
using PS63 to PS65 (APS/1 to
APS/3). When the ADF is closed
completely and PS311 (ADF
open/close) turns on, CCD reads the
white level of the platen cover and the
black level in the original. Among the
two original sizes detected as
discussed above, the larger size is
determined as the original size in the
main scanning direction.

a Explanation of operation
M15 is a 3-phase brushless DC motor
which is driven by the 3-phase bipolar
method. The current flowing through the
coil is switched according to the position
of the rotor detected by the position
sensor (magnetic sensor) in the motor.
This motor rotates the polygon mirror to
scan the laser beams from LDB (laser
driver board) in the axial direction of the
drum. Its rotation is held constant by
PLL control.

Two beams are emitted per laser diode. Two
lines of image data is written per scan.
The write start reference position is detected
by the index sensor board. The ICB has an
E-RDH function to store digitized image
data. Various editing functions can be
performed based on this data.
1 Operation
a Image processing
The following processing is performed
by the ICB (image control board):
1 Automatic offset control (AOCl)
The IC on the A/D converter board
(ADB) automatically adjusts the
analog offset voltage of the CCD
sensor output so that it is at the lower
limit of the A/D converter level.
2 Automatic gain control (AGC)
During shading correction, the white
reference plate is read to adjust the
analog amplification factor of the CCD
sensor output so that the read level is
at the upper limit of the A/D converter
level.

The image control board (ICB) sends
image data on a pixel basis to laser
driver board (LDB) according to the
control signals from the PRCB (printer
control board).
LDB causes the laser light to be emitted
for a period corresponding to the image
data. This laser light is radiated onto the
drum surface.
1 Maximum power control (MPC)
Image control board (ICB) informs
LDB (laser driver board) of the
maximum output value and sets that
value for the laser beam emission.
LDB store this value and maintain the
laser beam level using the APC (Auto
Power Control).

and PS/2 (PS7), causing a paper loop to
form against the pre-registration rollers
which are not turning. In this way, paper
skew is corrected.
Length: When paper pushes the paper
size detection actuator, the paper size
PS/2-1/2-2 (PS6/PS12) and the paper
size PS/1-1/1-2 (PS5/PS11) turn on.
Thus, the paper size is automatically
determined according to the
combination of the on/off states of these
PSs.
Width: When the side guides of the tray
are slid, the rack gear of the side guide
(front) turns the paper size VR/1/2 gear.
Thus, the paper size is automatically
determined according to the change in
the resistance value of the VR.

1 Operation
a Paper up drive control
When Tray 2/3 is loaded, M16/17 (tray
up drive/1/2) turns on to lift the up/down
plate in the tray. When PS2/8 (tray
upper limit/1/2) detects the upper limit of
paper as the paper up/down plate in the
tray goes up, it turns on and
consequently M16/17 goes off, causing
the tray to stop going up. When PS2/8
turns off after paper is fed, M16/17 goes
on again to move the paper up/down
plate upward. The up/down plate in the
tray is lowered mechanically by its own
weight.

When paper feed starts, paper is fed to
the pre-registration roller by the feed
roller and pick rollers. The fed out paper
operates the actuator of the paper feed
PS/3 (PS13), turning it on. The feed and
pick rollers remain on for a specified
time after the actuation of the paper
feed PS/3 (PS13) causing a paper loop
to form against the pre-registration
rollers which are not turning. In this way
paper skew is corrected.
Length: When paper pushes the paper

ADU reverse roller sequentially.
Normally, the ADU gate is closed and
it has no drive mechanism; it is
opened by the rigidity of paper.
When the paper reverse PS (PS42)
detects the trailing edge of paper and
consequently turns off, the
reverse/exit roller and ADU reverse
roller start rotating in the opposite
direction, feeding the paper back
toward the fuser unit. However, since
the reverse/exit gate is closed, the
paper is fed to the MFP exit roller via
the path outside this gate. Thus, the
paper is ejected with the print side
down.
Reverse/exit paper path selection
The reverse/exit selection gate in the
fuser unit determines whether the paper
is to be ejected straight or reversed and
ejected. The paper gate is operated by
the reverse gate SD (SD7) installed in
the ADU.
Because paper is reversed in the
reverse/exit section in the ADU, the
reverse/exit section is provided with a
reverse/exit gate to switch between the
forward and backward paper
conveyance paths. This gate has no
drive mechanism and it is opened by the
rigidity of the paper.
a Reverse/exit operation
Normally, the reverse/exit selection
gate opens when the reverse gate SD
(SD7) is turned off. The paper fed by
the exit roller in the fuser unit is fed,
through the path under the
reverse/exit selection gate, to the
reverse/exit section in the ADU by the
decurler roller. Normally, the
reverse/exit gate in the reverse/exit
section is closed. This gate is opened
by the rigidity of the fed paper,
allowing the paper to be fed to the
reverse/exit roller, ADU gate, and

b Straight ejection
When paper is ejected straight, the
reverse gate SD (SD7) is turned on to
close the reverse/exit selection gate.
The paper fed by the paper exit roller
is fed to the paper exit roller with the
print side up.
c ADU paper conveyance
In the two-sided copy mode, the
paper finished with printing on the
front side is fed, through the path
under the reverse/exit selection gate,
into the reverse/exit section just like
the reverse/exit operation. Then, the
paper is fed to the ADU by the
reverse/exit roller and ADU reverse
roller. These rollers do not rotate in
the opposite direction even when the
paper reverse PS (PS42) detects the
trailing edge of the paper, allowing
the paper to be fed until the
reverse/exit PS (PS46) turns off.
ENWW
Non-stack paper feed mechanism
In the two-sided copy mode, the ADU
reverse roller starts rotating in the
opposite direction when the reverse/exit
PS (PS46) detects the trailing edge of
paper and consequently it turns off. The
paper is fed toward the reverse/exit
section. However, since the ADU gate is
closed, the paper is fed to the ADU
conveyance roller/1 through the path
above this gate. Thus, the paper is
reversed and fed to the ADU exit,
without being stacked in the ADU.
The reversed paper is fed by ADU
conveyance rollers 1-4.

ADU pre-registration mechanism
In the ADU, paper is looped by the ADU
pre-registration roller to correct paper
inclination in the conveyance section. The
ADU pre-registration roller stops when the
loop roller motor (M6) stops; however, the
ADU conveyance roller continues to feed
paper at a constant speed, forming a paper
loop between the ADU pre-registration roller
and ADU conveyance roller. As a result,
paper inclination is corrected. When M6
starts, the ADU pre-registration roller starts
rotating to feed the paper to the second feed
section. An ADU conveyance MC (MC13) is
provided to turn on/off the drive force of ADU
conveyance rollers 1 and 2 in order to stop
the looped paper temporarily and to adjust
the loop size. In addition, an ADU
deceleration MC (MC2) is provided to turn
on/off the drive force of ADU conveyance
rollers 3 and 4. The ADU conveyance MC
(MC13) is turned on/off only when the paper
length is 325 mm or longer. If the paper
length is less than 325 mm, it stays on
during copying.

roller is driven by M8 (reverse/exit). The
ADU reverse roller is driven by M9 (ADU
reverse). The exit conveyance roller and
MFP exit roller are driven by M7 (paper exit).
M4 and M7 are controlled by PRCB (printer

controlled by PRCB (printer control board)
via ADUDB (ADU drive board).
Related signals are PS30 (fuser exit), PS37
(paper exit), and PS42 (paper reverse).
1 Operation
a Reverse/exit selection gate control
2 Paper reverse/exit
Because SD7 (reverse gate) has
been turned off to open the
reverse/exit selection gate, paper is
fed to the reverse/exit section in ADU
by the paper exit roller and decurler
roller driven by M4 (fuser).
3 ADF conveyance
Same as paper reverse/exit.
c Reverse control
M8 (reverse/exit) starts when the
START button is pressed, and it stops
when PS37 (paper exit) turns off at
detection of the trailing edge of the last
sheet of paper. Its rotational speed and
direction change when paper is ejected
or reversed, or is fed to ADU.
1 Paper reverse/exit
The reverse/exit selection gate is driven
by SD7 (reverse gate). Normally, the
reverse/exit selection gate is open to
guide paper to the reverse/exit section
in ADU. When paper is ejected straight,
SD7 is turned on to close the
reverse/exit selection gate.
The paper fed from the fuser unit is
then fed to the reverse/exit section via
the reverse/exit selection gate.
Normally, M8 and M9 are rotating in
the forward direction at a low speed,
feeding the paper to the ADU reverse
section.
When paper is ejected straight, SD7 is
turned on when the START button is
pressed and it is turned off when PS37
(paper exit) turns off at detection of the
trailing edge of the last sheet of paper.
When PS30 (fuser exit) detects the
trailing edge of paper and
consequently turns off, M8 and M9
start rotating in the forward direction
at a high speed, feeding paper to the
ADU reverse section continuously.
When PS42 (paper reverse) detects
the trailing edge of paper and
consequently turns off, M8 and M9
start rotating in the opposite direction
at a high speed, feeding the paper in
the paper exit direction.
b M4 (fuser) control
M4 (fuser) starts when the START
button is pressed, and it stops when
PS37 (paper exit) turns off at detection
of the training edge of the last sheet of
paper.
1 Straight paper exit
Paper is fed to the paper exit section
straight by the paper exit roller driven
by M4 (fuser) because SD7 (reverse
gate) is turned on to close the
reverse/exit selection gate.

2 ADF conveyance
The operation performed from the
moment PS30 (fuser exit) turns off at
detection of the trailing edge of paper
to the moment M8 (reverse/exit) and
M9 (ADU reverse) start rotating in the
forward direction at a high speed, is
the same as reverse/exit.
When PS46 (reverse/exit) turns off at
detection of the trailing edge of paper,
M8 starts rotating in the forward
direction at a high speed, proceeding
to feed the next sheet of paper.
After a lapse of the specified time
from detection of the trailing edge of
paper by PS46, M9 starts rotating in
the opposite direction at a low speed,
feeding paper to the ADU
conveyance section. When PS45
(ADU paper reverse) detects the
trailing edge of paper and
consequently turns off, M9 starts
rotating in the forward direction at a
low speed, proceeding to feed the
next sheet of paper.
d M7 (paper exit) control
M7 (paper exit) turns on when the
START button is pressed. The OFF
timing is different between paper
straight exit and reverse/exit.
1 Paper straight exit
The paper fed from the fuser unit by
the exit roller is ejected by the MFP
exit roller driven by M7 (paper exit).
M7 is always rotating at a constant
speed and it is turned off when PS37
(paper exit) turns off at detection of
the trailing edge of the last sheet of
paper.
ejected by the exit conveyance roller
and MFP exit roller which are driven
by M7 (paper exit) rotating at a high
speed. After a lapse of the specified
time from turning off of PS42 (paper
reverse) at detection of the trailing
edge of paper, M7 (paper exit) starts
rotating at a low speed to even up the
edges of paper in the exit tray. When
PS37 (paper exit) is turned off at
detection of the trailing edge of paper,
M7 starts rotating at a high speed
again, proceeding to eject the next
sheet of paper. When PS37 detects
the trailing edge of the last sheet of
paper, M7 (paper exit) stops. If
finisher is provided, M7 is always
rotating at a high speed.

Fuser heater lamps
Two halogen lamps are used for the
fuser upper roller and one halogen lamp
is used for the fuser lower roller to
reduce the warm-up time and ensure
reliable fuser.
*2
Cleaning
Cleaning web is used to clean the fuser
upper roller. The web SD (SD2) in the
MFP turns on/off to drive the cleaning
web wind-up shaft via the ratchet
mechanism and gears, thus supplying
cleaning web from the cleaning web
unwinding shaft. SD2 is controlled
according to the copy count, and
cleaning web supplied about 0.025 to
0.05 mm/copy. Cleaning web containing
silicon oil is pressed against the fuser
roller (upper) by the pressure roller.
Pressure roller Cleaning web unwinding shaft

Jam detection
When a jam occurs in the fuser exit
section, the paper exit guide plate
(lower) is pressed down, causing the
fuser exit PS (PS30) to detect a jam via
the jam detection plate and actuator.

The fuser roller (upper) is heated by L2
(fuser heater lamp 1) and L3 (fuser heater
lamp 2), and the fuser roller (lower) is heated
by L4 (fuser heater lamp 3). The PRCB
(printer control board) detects the
temperature of the fuser roller (upper) using
TH1 (fuser temperature sensor/1) and TH2
(fuser temperature sensor/2), and controls
L2 and L3 via DCPS (DC power supply unit).
1 Operation
a Temperature control
The PRCB (printer control board) turns
on the fuser heater lamp circuit in DCPS
as soon as the SW2 (sub power) is
turned on, holding L2 (fuser heater
lamp/1), L3 (fuser heater lamp/2), and
L4 (fuser heater lamp/3) lit until the
fuser roller (upper) reaches the
specified temperature. L2, L3, and L4
are turned on/off under the control of the
TRC1 (triac/1), TRC2 (triac/2) and
TRC3 (triac/3).
b Protection against abnormal
temperature rise
114
MFP unit explanation
Thermostats are used to prevent the
temperature of the fuser rollers from
rising abnormally. TS1 (thermostat/U)
and TS2 (thermostat/L) are used for the
fuser roller (upper/lower). As these
thermostat are of the noncontact type,
those do not touch the fuser roller
(upper/lower).
The operating temperature of the
thermostats are as follows:
TS1: Opens at 180° C
TS2: Opens at 110° C

Parts that operate when SW1 (main power)/SW2 (secondary power) is on
a Operation performed when SW1 (main
power) is on
When SW1 (main power) is turned on,
AC power is supplied to DCPS (DC
power supply unit). As a result, DCPS
supplies 5 VDC and 12 VDC to the
status management and control circuit
on ICB (image control board), HD-105,
and Q3639A. ICB supplies 5 VDC to
OB1 (operation board/1).
b Operation performed when SW2 (sub
power) is on
If SW2 (sub power) is turned on when
SW1 (main power) is already on, DCPS
supplies 24 DVC for driving various
loads. Thus, all boards are energized
and initialization of this machine starts.

Original conveyance process
The ADF consists of an original feed section, conveyance section, reversal section, and original
exit section.
The original face up on the original feed tray,
is fed from the topmost original. The fed
original is not conveyed to the original glass.
Instead, it is read when it passes the ADF
glass placed in the conveyance path.
The ADF operation consists of single side
original copy mode, double side original
copy mode, mixed original copy mode and
Z-fold mode. Each has a different
conveyance path.
Single side original copy mode
(single side to single side, single side to
double side)
The original set in the original feed tray is
pressed to the pick roller by the original
pressing board. The pick roller and feed
roller pre-feed the original until the original
registration PS/1 (PS304) turns on and
original reaches the registration roller.
6 ADF overview
After completing the registration loop, the
registration roller re-feeds the original and
the original is conveyed to the read section.
The original is conveyed by the conveyance
roller. The scanning starts when the original

original exit reversal roller feed the original

The original is read when it passes over the
ADF glass. The original that has been read
is ejected to the original exit section by the
original exit roller, passing along the
circumference of the original exit guide. The
next original is pre-fed if there is one.
Reversal roller
Reverse gate
The original is conveyed to the edge of the
reverse gate until it stops when the specified
time has passed since the PS304 detects
the trailing edge of the original. The original
flips over and the reverse gate closes. The
reversal roller and the original exit reversal
roller turn to the reverse direction, and feed
the original to the read section.
Next original
Double side original copy mode
(single side copy, double side copy)
The order by which the original is scanned is
2 → 1 → 4 → 3 during the double side
original copy mode; the back side is scanned
first, then the front side.
The original set on the original feed tray is
pre-fed by the pick roller and feed roller until
the original registration PS/1 (PS304) turns
on and original reaches the registration
roller. Then, the reverse gate opens, and the
registration roller conveys the original to the

Mixed original copy mode
The mixed original copy mode supports both
the same series original and different series
originals, and the size of the original is
determined by the ON interval of the original
registration PS/1 (PS304). In single-side
original copy mode (with out AMS) and
double-side original copy mode, the
conveyance path of original is same as
normal conveyance path. In single-side
original copy mode (with AMS), the
conveyance path of original is same as that
in double-side original copy mode.
For details on size detection, refer to the
section Original size detection control.
Z-fold original copy mode
Original exit reversal
roller
Original exit gate
The original is now reversed again, and the
reading of the front side of the original is
conveyed to the read section by the reversal
roller and the original exit reversal roller in
the same manner as scanning the back side
of the original starts.
In the Z-fold original copy mode, the length
of the original is determined by the ON
interval of the original registration PS/1
(PS304).
The length is detected for the first sheet of
original. The conveyance path of the original
is the same as the single-side original copy
mode and the double-side original copy
mode.
The original that has been scanned passes
under the original exit gate, and is ejected to
the original exit section by the original exit
roller. The next original is conveyed to the
reversal section if there is one.

Original exit path switching
During the double side copy mode, the
up/down movement of the original exit
gate determines whether to eject the
original, or to feed the original to the
reversal section to scan it again.
The exit gate drive SD (SD302) turns
on/off during the double side copy
mode. To scan the back side, the
original exit gate goes down to convey
the original to the reversal section.
When both sides of the original are
read, the original exit gate lifts to exit the
original to the original exit tray.

Original feed is performed by the pick roller
and feed roller driven by M301 (original
feed). Original conveyance is performed by
the original conveyance roller driven by
M302. Original is fed when MS301 (cover
open/close MS) and PS311 (ADF open/close
PS) are turned on.
12
ADF unit explanation
ENWW
The forward rotation of M301 releases
the pressure on the original pressing
plate.
1 Operation
During the single-side original copy, the
conveyance switches to low speed
when the specified time has passed
after PS305 (original registration /2) has
turned on. During the double-side
original copy, the reverse gate opens
and the original passes through the
reverse gate to be conveyed to the
reversal section at high speed. (For
details on reverse and conveyance
control, refer to Original reverse and
conveyance control.)
a Pressing original against roller and
pre-feeding original
1 Pre-feeding the first sheet of original
By pressing the START button, M301
(original feed) rotates backwards at
high speed (MC301 (original feed
MC) is on) to raise the original
pressing plate. Since M301 rotates
backward at high speed, the original
feed starts by the action of the pick
roller and the feed roller. M301 stops
when a specified time has passed
after the original has turned PS304
(original registration PS/1) on.
2 Pre-feeding the second and
subsequent originals
When the currently scanned original
is conveyed and PS304 (original
registration /1) turns off during the
single side original copy mode, M301
(original feed) rotates backward at
high speed (MC301 (original feed
MC) is on), the prefeeding of the next
original starts. During the double-side
original copy mode, M301 rotates
backward at high speed after a
specified time when the scanning of
the back side of the first sheet of
original has completed, and the
prefeeding of the next original starts.
M301 stops after a specified time
after the original has turned PS304
on.
b Original conveyance operation
When the control signal is received from
the MFP after the pre-feeding operation
of the original has completed, M301
(original feed) rotates forward at high
speed (MC301 (original feed MC) is on).
The registration roller rotates and the
original is conveyed at high speed.
ENWW
c Scan operation
1 Single-side original copy mode:
The low-speed rotation of M302
(original conveyance motor) starts in
the same timing as the conveyance
procedure described above, and the
original is conveyed by the
conveyance roller. The scanning
starts when the specified time has
passed after PS306 (original
conveyance) has turned on.
2 Double-side original copy mode:
The back side of the original is
scanned first, then the front side. The
scanning procedure is the same for
both sides. M301 (original feed)
rotates backward at high speed
(MC301 (original feed MC) is on), and
the original is conveyed from the
reversal section to the read section.
Then it switches back to low speed
when the specified time has passed
after PS305 (original registration /2)
has turned on. At the same time,
M302 (original conveyance) starts
rotating to scan the original.
The scanning operation is the same
as for the single-side original copy.
Original feed/conveyance/exit section 13
ADF unit explanation
Each of these features is controlled by
PRCB (printer control board) and driven by
SCDB (scanner drive board).
d Scanning the last sheet of original
When PS301 (last original) turns off
while scanning is in progress, currently
scanned original is processed as the
last original. The pre-feed of the original
stops, and with PS302 (original setting)
turned off, the original feed tray is
detected as empty. M301 (original feed)
and M302 (original conveyance) stop
when the specified time has passed
after the original has passed through
PS303 (original exit) and original
ejection has completed.
e Original skew detection control
PS307 (original skew/F) and PS308
(original skew/R) are provided to detect
the inclined leading edge of the original
during conveyance. PS307 and PS308
are placed at the front and back of the
pre-scan conveyance path and
determine the inclination in interval at
which the leading edge of the original
turns these switches on. A skewed
image caused by original inclination is
corrected through image processing
and image data is written.

The original exit gate which switches the
original exit path is driven by SD302 (exit
gate drive). The reverse gate, which
switches the original feed path during
double-side original copy mode, is driven by
SD301 (reverse gate drive). SD303
(pressure roller release) releases the
pressure on the original exit reversal roller.
Ejection of the original and conveyance to
the reversal exit are performed by M302
(original conveyance), which rotates the
conveyance roller and original exit roller.
M301 (original feed) drives the reversal roller
16
ADF unit explanation
ENWW
1 Operation
a Original ejection operation
During the single side copy mode and
when copying the front side in the
double side copy mode, the original exit
gate lifts upward because SD302 (exit
gate drive SD) is turned off. Therefore,
scanned original is ejected to the
original exit tray by the action of the
original exit roller. PS303 (original exit
PS) detects the original ejection.
b Reversal operation for double side
original copy
1 The first sheet of original
When PS304 (original registration/1)
turns on and pre-feed of the original
has completed, SD301 (reverse gate
drive) receives a signal from the MFP
and turns on to open the reverse
gate. M301 (original feed) rotates
forward (MC301 (original feed MC) is
on), and the registration roller,
reversal roller, and original exit
reversal roller convey the original to
the reversal section at high speed,
passing through the reverse gate.
M301 stops when a specified time
has passed after PS304 has detected
the trailing edge of the original. (The
original is conveyed to the reversal
section until the trailing edge crosses
over the reverse gate.) During this
time, SD301 turns off and the reverse
gate closes.
2 Second and subsequent original
When PS305 (original registration/2)
detects the trailing edge of the front
side of the first original, SD301
(reverse gate drive) turns on to open
the reverse gate.The second and
ENWW
subsequent originals are thus
conveyed to the reversal section in
the same manner as the first original.
c Feeding the back side
When the reversal operation for the
double-side copy mode described
above has completed, high speed
backward rotation of M301 (original
feed) (MC301 (original feed MC) is off)
conveys the original to the read section
by the action of the reversal roller and
the original exit reversal roller. When
M301 rotates backward, SD302 (exit
gate drive) turns on to lower the original
exit gate, and the original exit path
switches from the original exit tray to the
reversal exit. When the specified time has
passed since PS305 (original
registration /2) is turned on by detecting
the leading edge of the original, SD303
(pressure roller release SD) turns on
temporarily according to the original
size. By SD303’s turning on, the
pressure on the original exit reversal
roller is released. This enables the
leading edge and the trailing edge of the
original to pass each other. When a
specified time has passed since the
back side of the original starts to be
scanned, SD303 turns off, at the same
time, M301 has been switched to low
speed forward rotation (MC301 is off).
The original exit reversal roller rotates in
the reverse direction, and the original is
conveyed to the reversal exit again. As
soon as scanning of the back side of the
original has completed, SD302 turns off,
and after the predefined time, M301 is
switched to high speed rotation. It stops
after the specified interval.
d Feeding the front side of the original
The original, which is conveyed to the
reversal section, is conveyed to the
read section again in order to scan the
front side. Since SD302 (exit gate drive)
is off, the scanned original is ejected to
the original exit tray.

The size of the original placed in the original
feed tray is detected by PS309 (original
size/2), PS310 (original size/1), and VR301
(original size VR).
Each of these features is controlled by
PRCB (printer control board) and driven by
SCDB (scanner drive board).
1 Operation
a Normal copy mode
PRCB detects the original size from the
combination of the following signals:
1 Drum axis direction size detection
A guide plate is connected to VR301
(original size VR) and the resistance
value varies with the position of the
guide plate. This is used to determine
the vertical dimension of the original.
2 Original feed direction size detection
The horizontal dimension of the
original is detected with the on/off
combination of PS309 (original size
/2) and PS310 (original size PS/1).
b Mixed/Z-fold copy mode original size
detection
Size detection during mixed and Z-fold
copy modes are performed as follows:
1 Drum axis direction size detection
The vertical dimension of the largest
original is determined by the position
of the guide plate.
18
ADF unit explanation
ENWW
2 Original feed direction size detection
In Z-fold original copy mode, the
length of the first original is detected.
The ON interval of PS304 (original
registration/1) after the original
passes the registration roller is used
to determine the horizontal dimension
of each original.

closes, HCI up/down motor (M100)
rotates and the up/down plate
connected to the up/down wires rises.
8 HCI unit explanation
The up/down plate automatically lowers
by 120 mm when the top cover is
opened.
Subsequently, it is lowered by 120 mm
each time HCI tray down drive switch
(SW100) is pressed.

Remaining paper detection
The HCI is equipped with a remaining
paper detection gear which rotates
together with HCI up/down motor
(M100) driving the up/down plate.
The remaining paper detection gear has
an actuator to turn on/off HCI remaining
paper detection PS1 (PS102), HCI
remaining paper detection PS2
ENWW
Each sensor is turned on/off according
to the rotating position of the remaining
paper detection gear and since this is
linked with the up/down position of the
up/down plate, the remaining paper
quantity in the HCI can be determined
by monitoring the on/off of each sensor.
The remaining paper quantity detected
with the four sensors is displayed on the
MFP display.

First paper feed control
2 Start of second and subsequent
papers
When PS106 (HCI feed) is turned off
by the preceding paper.
3 OFF timing
When the MFP M7 (paper exit) turns
off.
b Interlock
The power supply line of M101 (HCI
paper feed) is equipped with MS101
(HCI interlock/1) and MS102 (HCI
interlock/2). When the top cover is
opened, MS101 turns off, and when the
jam access door is opened MS102 turns
off, thereby cutting off the power supply
to M101.
The first paper is fed by the pick roller and
the feed roller, driven by M101(HCI paper
feed) via MC101(HCI feed MC). The pick
roller and feed roller touch the paper when
SD100 (HCI first feed) is on, feeding the
paper to the conveyance roller. Then, SD100
(HCI first paper feed) turns off to release the
pick roller and feed roller from the paper.
The conveyance roller is also driven by
M101, by turning on MC102 (HCI first feed
MC), paper is fed to the MFP.
The related signals are: PS100 (HCI top
cover open/close detection), PS106 (HCI
feed), PS107 (HCI first feed), and PS110
(HCI jam access door open/close detection).
1 Operation
a First paper feed timing
1 Start of first paper feed
At predefined interval after the START
button is pressed.
10
HCI unit explanation
Furthermore, the top cover is equipped
with PS100 (HCI top cover open/close
detection) and the jam access door is
equipped with PS110 (HCI jam access
door open/close detection) and when
either of these doors is opened during
paper feed, the M101 drive signal is
turned off to stop the paper feed
operation.
c Internal heater
The HCI is equipped with HTR101 (HCI
internal heater) to protect the paper
from humidity. HTR101 is directly
controlled by the MFP PRCB (printer
control board) rather than by the HCIDB
(HCI drive board).

3 Others
The up/down plate descends by
120 mm each time SW100 is pressed
until PS101 turns on to indicate the
bottom limit of the up/down plate.
b Up/down plate ascend timing
1 ON timing
When the top cover is closed and
PS100 (HCI top cover open/close
detection) is turned on, M100 (HCI
UP/DOWN) rotates forward to raise
the up/down plate.
2 OFF timing
When the top cover opens or closes, M100
(HCI up/down motor) rotates forward or
backward to move the up/down plate up or
down. The up/down plate descends by
120 mm each time SW100 (HCI tray down
drive) is pressed while the top cover is
opened.
The related signals are PS100 (HCI top
cover open/close detection), PS101 (HCI
lower limit detection), and PS109 (HCI upper
limit detection).
1 Operation
a Up/down plate descend timing
1 ON timing
When the top cover is opened and
PS100 (HCI top cover open/close
detection) is turned off, M100 rotates
backward to lower the up/down plate.
When SW100 (HCI tray down drive)
turns on by pressing, M100 rotates
backward to move the up/down plate
down.
2 OFF timing
M100 turns off at predefined interval
after PS100 turns off or SW100 turns
on. This in turn lowers the up/down
plate by 120 mm.
When the up/down plate rises and
PS109 (HCI upper limit detection)
turns on to indicate the detection of
the topmost paper, M100 (HCI
UP/DOWN) turns off and stops the
up/down plate.
The up/down plate also stops when
the top cover is opened and PS100
(HCI top cover open/close detection)
turns off.

which is driven by the gate drive motor
(M712).

Bypass gate
The bypass gate is located on the path
to the stacker. This gate changes the
conveyance path of the next sheet while
the stapling is being performed, saving
time and improving performance. This
gate is used for small size papers (A4,
B5, and 8.5 by 11). The gate changes
the feeding direction of the second
sheet so that it is laid over the first
sheet. The first and second sheets will
be conveyed to the stacker
simultaneously.
The bypass gate SD (SD705) drives the
bypass gate.

Open/close of paper exit opening
When paper is conveyed to the stacker,
and it is larger than B5R in the vertical
length (feeding direction), it does not fit
the paper exit opening. This mechanism

1 Operation
In the sort or group mode, PS704 (finisher
entrance) detects the rear end of the
paper. After a predefined time period,
M702 (shift) operates. Its rotation triggers
the shift (travel) of the shift moving
section. The shift roller, rotated by M701
(finisher conveyance), carries the paper
while the shift operation is being
performed.
The completion of the shift operation is
detected by the change of PS718 (shift
HP) signal, from off to on, and then M702
is deactivated.
After a predefined time period has elapsed
since M702 was deactivated, it is
activated again. M702 stops when PS718
(shift HP) signal changes from on to off.
This operation allows the shift moving
section to return to its original position to
wait for the next paper to be shifted.
This sequence of actions is repeated for
each sheet to achieve offsetting of paper.

exit arm will not operate. This is
because the paper exit arm may come
into contact with the paper, which is
waiting for a process at the folding

opening is monitored using the tray
upper limit PS (PS702) and the stapler
paper exit upper limit PS (PS707). This
distance is kept constant to avoid
misalignment of delivered sheets.
The counting program, built in the
finisher, counts the number of delivered
sheets on the main tray during
continuous copying. When the total
number of delivered sheets reaches a
maximum (values are predefined
depending on type/size of paper), the
copying operation is suspended.

In the staple, folding, stitch-and-fold,
tri-folding modes, the widthwise alignment
operation of the paper carried into the
stacker section is performed by the
alignment plate/U. The space between the
two alignment plates/U extends or shrinks by
means of the rotation of the M705
(alignment/U). The finisher CB (finisher
control board) controls the operation of
M705 through the RB (relay board).
The related signals are PS705 (stacker
entrance) and PS708 (alignment HP/U).
1 Operation
The finisher operation signal from the
MFP lets M705 (alignment/U) rotate so
that the space between the two alignment
plates/U will become narrower. The
rotation of M705 stops when the plates
reach their waiting positions that provide a
little wider space for the paper to be
accommodated.
When PS705 (stacker entrance) has
detected the trailing edge of the paper and
a predefined time period has elapsed, the
alignment plates/U horizontally oscillate to
align the paper. The oscillation is provided
by the normal and reverse rotations of
M705. This paper alignment action is
repeated each time a sheet of paper is
fed.

Staple control
1 Operation
a Staple
Upon completion of the alignment
operation by the alignment plates, M709
and M714 (stapler /R and /F) initiate the
operation of pushing the needles into
the paper. After a predefined time
period has elapsed, M710 and M715
(clincher /R and /F) start bending of the
needles. The stapling operation finishes
when PS732 (clincher hp /R) and
PS733 (clincher hp /F) as well as
PS730 (stapler hp /R) and PS731
(stapler hp /F) detect the clinchers and
the staplers at their home positions (off
to on).
b Staple clogging detection
During the stapling action, if one or
more signals from PS730, PS731
(stapler hp /R and /F), PS732 and/or
PS733 (clincher hp /R and /F) do not
return to on within a predefined time
period since they have changed to off,
the MFP recognizes that a needle
clogging error has occurred. In this
case, M709, M714 (stapler /R and /F),
M710, and M715 (clincher /R and /F)
initiate reverse rotations to return the
staplers and the clinchers to their home
positions.
c Cartridge detection
SW701 and SW703 (cartridge /R and
/F) in the staplers detects whether the
cartridges are properly installed or not.
If the cartridge is not found or is

Mechanism
After the paper has been stopped by the
tri-folding stopper, it is bent along the
surfaces of the upper folding roller and
the tri-folding roller. Then the paper is
carried through the contact surface of
the two rollers, which completes the
second folding operation.

1 Operation
a Automatic sheet feeding (online)
1 When the MFP's START button turns
on, M201/M202 (tray up/down/U/L)
are driven in forward, which lifts the
up/down plate/U/L until PS204/PS209
(tray upper limit/U/L) are activated.
2 Concurrently, while M203 (PI
conveyance) is driven at low speed,
SD201/SD202 (sheet feed/U/L) and
MC201/MC202 (conveyance/U/L)
comes on and sheets are fed into the
finisher stacker.
3 When the last sheet on the up/down
plate/U/L is fed and PS203/PS208
(sheet setting/U/L) comes off, the
no-sheet-signal is sent to the MFP,
causing the first feed of MFP to stop.
After that, when PS202/PS207 (no
sheet/U/L) comes off, M201/M202

1 When the PI control panel's START
button turns on, M202 (tray
up/down/L) is driven in forward, which
lifts the up/down plate/L until PS209
(tray upper limit/L) is activated.
2 Concurrently, while M203 (PI
conveyance) is driven at low speed,
SD202 (sheet feed/L) and MC202
(conveyance/L) comes on and all
sheets set in the up/down plate/L fed
into the finisher stacker.
3 The finisher carries out the required
finishing processes (stapling,
tri-folding, etc.).
4 PS207 (no sheet/L) comes off, M202
(tray up/down/L) is driven in reverse,
which lowers the sheet tray until
PS210 (tray lower limit/L) is activated.

c Sheet conveyance
When the sheet fed from the paper
feed unit at low speed turns
PS201/PS206 (PI passage /U/L) on,
M203 (PI conveyance) changes its
rotating speed to high-speed. At this
time, as MC203 (registration) turns
off, the sheet is pressed against the
conveyance rollers /U/L to form a
loop. MC203 turns on when a
specified time has passed since
PS201/PS206 turned on, and the
drive force of M203 is transmitted to
the conveyance rollers /U/L. This
causes the sheet whose bend is
corrected by loop formation to be
conveyed into finisher.
When the sheet turns PS206 off,
MC203 turns off after a specified
time. With the same timing, MC203
changes its rotating speed to
low-speed and comes into feeding
operation for the next sheet.
d Detection of sheet size
VR201/VR202 (sheet size/U/L) detect
the sheet width.
Sheet length is detected by the
combination of PS203/PS208 (sheet
setting/U/L) and PS212 (sheet
size/L).

Movement of the standby position
of the punch unit
When the punch mode is selected, the
punch shift motor (M802) runs to move the
punch unit so that the paper edge sensor
mounted on the punch unit is placed inside
of the side edge of paper by 5 mm. However,
if the paper size is Letter, Legal, or
5.5 by 8.5R, the sensor is positioned by
10 mm inside.
The above operation is not generally
performed in the non-punch mode, however,
for the paper sizes shown below, the punch
unit is moved to the position located inside of
the side edge of paper by 10 mm in order to
secure the easy feeding of paper when
conveyed.

Formation of a registration loop
The finisher conveyance motor (M701) turns
off temporarily to stop conveyance of paper
when the specified time has passed since
paper exit PS (PS37) detected the leading
edge of the paper. Thus the paper is pressed
against the entrance roller forming a loop to
correct the bend. When the specified time
has passed, M701 turns on to restart
conveying the paper.
The above operation is not performed when
conveying a large paper (220 mm and
longer in direction of conveyance) and in the
non-punching mode.
When punching the paper conveyed from PI,
the loop is formed on the PI's side. For
details, refer to Q3636A SHB.

Correction of the punch position
The punch unit positioned inside of the side
edge of paper by 5 mm or 10 mm performs
the following procedures to correct the
punch position so that the punch is always
centered on the paper. The punch position is
corrected by moving the punch unit to and
fro during conveyance of the paper.
● When finisher entrance PS (PS704)
detects the leading edge of the paper, the
punch unit is moved backward temporarily
until the paper edge sensor detects the
side edge of the paper. If punching is
performed for the paper conveyed from PI,
the time when PI passage PS/U (PS201)
or PI passage PS/L (PS206) detects the
leading edge of the paper becomes the
starting point.
● Subsequently, the punch unit moves back
frontward until the paper edge sensor
re-detects the side edge of the paper
(Detection of side edge reference
position).

center of the paper. The distance and
direction of this movement differ from
paper sizes. Only when moving backward,
the punch unit makes a stop at the side
edge reference position.

In the punch mode, the finisher conveyance
motor (M701) turns off to stop the paper
conveyance temporarily when the specified
time has passed since the finisher entrance
PS (PS704) detected the trailing edge of the
paper, and holes are punched.
During punching, the drive force of the
punch motor (M801) is transferred to the
shaft to rotate the shaft once. As the shaft
rotates, the eccentric cams at both ends of
the shaft rotate to lower the punch edges,
making holes in the paper.
After the punch is finished, the punch unit
moves to the side edge reference position
when the specified time has passed since
the trailing edge of the paper is detected by
PS704, which makes a standby status for
the punch process for the following paper.

The punching operation can be divided
into the movement of the punch unit and
the punch movement that makes holes. In
the punch mode, these movements are
performed for every sheet of paper, while
in the non-punch mode these are not
performed. However, the movement of the
punch unit is performed for some paper
sizes even in the non-punch mode.
PKDB
The movement of the punch unit is driven by
M802 (punch shift) and the punching
operation is driven by M801 (punch). M801
is DC motor, and rotates once per punch.
Related signals are PS801 (punch HP),
PS803 (punch shift HP), and paper edge
sensor.
With power turned on, M802 (punch
shift) runs to move the punch unit to the
position where PS803 (punch shift HP)
is turned on, which makes a standby
state. This position becomes the
standby home position of the punch
unit.
b Moving the standby position of the
punch unit
When the punch mode is selected,
M802 (punch shift) runs to move the
punch unit so that the paper edge
sensor mounted on the punch unit is
located inside of the side edge of paper
by 5 mm. However, if the paper size is
Letter, Legal, or 5.5 by 8.5R, the sensor
is positioned by 10 mm inside. Either of
these positions becomes the standby
position in the punch mode.
The above operation is not generally
performed in the non-punch mode,
however, for the paper sizes shown
below, the punch unit is moved to the
position located inside of the side edge
of paper by 10 mm in order to secure
the easy feeding of paper when
conveyed.

Punch section 13
Punch kit unit explanation
Mechanism
Back-and-forth movement
of punch unit
1 Operation
c Detecting the side edge reference
position
When the finisher entrance PS (PS704)
detects the leading edge of paper, M802
(punch shift) runs again to move the
punch unit backward temporarily until
the paper edge sensor detects the side
edge of the paper. If punching is
performed for the paper conveyed from
PI, the time when PS201 (PI
passage/U) or PS206 (PI passage/L)
detects the leading edge of the paper is
the starting point.
Subsequently, M802 runs inversely to
move the punch unit frontward until the
paper edge sensor re-detects the side
edge of the paper. This position
becomes the side edge reference
position.
d Moving the punch position
When the side edge reference position
is detected, M802 (punch shift) moves
the punch unit again so that the center
of punch edges is positioned to the
center of paper. The distance and
direction of this movement differ from
paper sizes. Only when moving
backward, the punch unit makes a stop
at the side edge reference position. The
direction of the movement from the side
edge reference position to the punch
position classified by paper sizes is as
follows:
Frontward:
A5 / A5R / B5R / A4 / A4R / B4 / A3 /
Letter / 8.5 by 14 / 5.5 by 8.5 /
5.5 by 8.5R / 8K / 16K / 16KR
Backward:
B5 / F4 / Letter R / Ledger
e Forming a registration loop
M701 (finisher conveyance) turns off
temporarily a specified time after PS37
(paper exit) detects the leading edge of
the paper to form a loop at the entrance
roller. If punching is performed for the
paper conveyed from PI, the loop will be
formed on the PI's side.
f Punch movement
When finisher entrance PS (PS704)
detects the trailing edge of the paper,
M801 (punch) runs and performs the
punch movement. For some paper
sizes, the punch movement is executed
before completing the correction of the
punch position for the punch unit. To
avoid this, switch the conveyance speed
on finisher to a low speed only for such
paper size.
Paper size
A5 / 5.5 by 8.5R
Other sizes
Conveyance speed
345 mm/s
670 mm/s
If punching is performed for the paper
conveyed from PI, the time when the
trailing edge of the paper is detected by
PS206 (PI passage/L) is the starting
point.
g Paper edge sensor
To detect the side edge of the paper, the
paper edge sensor mounted on the
punch unit is used. The paper edge
sensor consists of 5 sensors shown in
the below figure. Which sensor is used
depends on the paper sizes.

The series of movement from “c.
Detecting the side edge reference
position to “d.” “Moving the punch
position” is performed per each paper,
and these movements correct the punch
position.

a Punch waste full detection
PS802 (punch waste full) detects
whether the punch waste box is full.
When the punch waste box becomes
full, PS802 turns on to send the “punch
waste full” signal to the MFP.
Upon receipt of this signal, the MFP
displays a related message on the
control panel.
b Punch waste box detection
PS804 (punch waste box set) detects
whether the punch waste box is
attached.
If the punch waste box is not attached,
PS804 turns off to send the “punch
waste box not attached” signal to the
MFP.
Upon receipt of this signal, the MFP
displays a related message on the
