MAGNETIC OPTION CARDS
Horizontal Magnetic and MICR interface cards for managing the optional magnetic units can be connected to the
motherboard:
• Horizontal magnetic unit - interface card code XYAB3124 - to connect to the special connectors on the
motherboard;
• MICR unit - interface card code XYAB1564 - to connect to the special connectors on the motherboard.
Horizontal magnetic unit
This device can read/write horizontal magnetic stripes. It consists of a mobile magnetic printhead that operates
across the insertion slot with a specific controlled-movement mechanism.
It operates across the entire insertion slot of the printer and does not involve any particular constraints as regards
positioning of the passbook inserted.
The operation on the stripe is carried out exerting controlled pressure on the passbook to guarantee uniform
distance between the printhead and the magnetic support.
– R/W reference standards: DIN ISO 32744, IBM 3604, ANSI;
– alignment: autoborder;
– error rate: <1/10000 (after three automatic retries).
The following figure provides an illustration of the interface card that is connected to the special connectors on the
motherboard.

MICR reader
The MICR (Magnetic Ink Character Reader) reader technology allows CNC7 / E13B characters printed on cheques
to be read.
The reader, located inside printer, operates crosswise to the direction of movement of the paper.
It comprises a read head able to operate also on passbook magnetic stripes, fitted on a specific mechanism that
guarantees correct traverse during work phases.
The read range is equal to the size of the slot. A position restriction on the right-hand side of the feeder is accepted.
If present, this restriction must be highlighted by a graphic sign on the top lip of the slot.
The interpretation SW must be able to recognize the font of the check being read automatically (objective).

SCANNER
A fast color scanner with a resolution of 600 dpi is included. The scanner features a fixed lower image acquisition
element (CIS) and a mobile upper element that moves from the top down when activated. This action makes it
possible for the printer to maintain the same throughput, in terms of documents managed, as the standard
PR2 plus.
When only the upper element is present, a specific closing element replaces the shape of the lower scanning
element. The layout of the two scanners takes into account the fact that it must be possible to activate these at the
same time, eliminating optical disturbances (shadow images) that may occur with particular types of paper.

Chapter 2 - INSTALLATION
GENERAL INFORMATION FOR INSTALLATION
For optimum printer operation and to avoid servicing for causes that do not depend on the product, comply with the
information provided below.
Power supply
Check that the electrical outlet to which the printer is connected has a ground connection and is suitably scaled to
provide the power required by the machine. An outlet without a ground connection may cause malfunctions and
generate safety problems.
Do not connect the printer to power supply lines shared with appliances that may cause electrical disturbances and
excessive variations in voltage (fans and air conditioners, large photocopiers, lift and goods-lift motors, radio TV
transmitters and signal generators, high frequency safety devices, etc.).
Normal office machines (calculators, typewriters, small photocopiers, terminals and PC) may be connected on the
same line provided that they do not cause too many disturbances.
Environmental conditions
The environmental conditions in which the product may remain for an indefinite time are those indicated by AB
quality objectives: normal, conditioned office environment (environmental temperature 15/35 0C, relative humidity
15/85% HU).
Variations in environmental conditions such as to cause condensation must be avoided both during storage and
functioning. Dust, dirt and smoke may cause excess wear of moving parts, short-circuits (in the presence of high
humidity) and read/write errors during the various operations. High temperatures and low levels of humidity may
cause problems due to static electricity.
Locating the machine
•
The printer must be installed on a flat, firm, vibration-free surface.
•
Do not install the printer close to ventilation systems, sources of heat or points exposed directly to the rays of
the sun.
•
Do not obstruct the ventilation slots of the printer.
•
If the machine is fitted inside a cabinet, check good ventilation to avoid dangerous overheating.
•
Install the machine in a position that does not prevent removal of documents along the paper paths.

CALIBRATING THE PHOTOSENSORS
Machine photosensors are calibrated at the factory. Changes in the electrical characteristics of the photosensors or
the use of particular paper may require further calibration at the customer site.
Machine photosensors that must be calibrated are:
•
«Paper present» photosensors
Consist of two LEDs and two photo-receivers and are the first to detect insertion of the document in the front
slot. The light beam is transmitted by optical fibers.
•
«Front paper alignment» photosensors
Housed in the same mechanical unit as the paper present photosensors, indicated in this manual as front
photosensors assy. The front paper alignment photosensors check alignment of the document before this
moves close to the printhead. They consist of four LEDs and the same number of photo-receivers, all coupled
by optical fibers.
•
«Autoborder» photosensor
Is fitted on the printhead and detects the presence of the paper in order to measure the position of the first print
column. This photosensor also permits (if selected from set-up) control of printing interrupt functions if the paper
is narrower than the print line sent by the system.
The position in the machine of the individual photosensors is shown in the following figure.

To carry out the photosensor calibration procedure, proceed as follows:
1. Open the printer cover. Check that the printhead is positioned on the left (end of carriage).
2. Power on the printer, with the cover open, keeping the three
console keys pressed.
3. Wait for the acoustic signal that indicates access to the calibration and adjustment procedure.
4. Close the printer cover.
4 LEDs are illuminated while the READY LED flashes.
5. Press the STATION1 key twice and wait until the LED "insert
paper" (STATION 2) illuminates. The printer logic will read the
current and voltages present on the photosensors when
paper is absent.
2
6. Into the front slot, insert a sheet in Mylar (code 473245H01)
and press the STATION2 key. The sheet is inserted
completely in a way that it covers all the photosensors. At the
same time, the printer logic will perform a reading of the
currents and voltages present on the photosensors for the
paper present status.
7. Press the STATION2 button. Wait for the end of the movement that introduces and ejects the sheet.
8. If, after ejection of the sheet, there are no faults, the console LEDs will remain off; subsequent re-insertion of a
sheet of A4 paper will permit printing of the values read and selected for each individual photosensor.
9. Verify that the values printed for every photosensor are included within the limits indicated in the following figure.
If the values respect the limits, the sensors are functioning correctly. On the other hand if any value is
anomalous (outside or very near to the limit), it means that the photosensor is either dirty or very near breakage
point.
– 1 - Minimum value acceptable greater than or equal to 3500.
– 2 - Maximum value acceptable less than or equal to 1500.
– 3 - The difference between the acceptable values for B and the acceptable values for A must be
at least 3000.

Printing photosensor calibration values
Bi-directional printing speeds up the writing of the printer, but it could reduce printing quality if a misalignment
occurs between the lines written from left to right and vice-versa. To eliminate this defect, you can optimise the
alignment of bi-directional printing through calibration.
Calibration must be performed for each of the following printing modes:
•
Very High Speed Draft, High Speed Draft
•

Measuring document length
It is necessary to measure the width of the form to permit faster management of the magnetic stripe of the
passbooks. Selecting, via set-up, the "STRIPE HANDLING: FAST" item, (see page 4-17) the value read with the
form measurement procedure will be used to determine the position of the magnetic stripe and for positioning of the
stripe above the magnetic head (without having to make several measurements of passbook width). This
considerably reduces passbook management time.
To carry out this calibration, proceed as follows:
NOTE: if this type of management is to function correctly, the same passbooks as measured must be
used.
To carry out this calibration, proceed as follows:

15. Insert an A4 sheet and the printer will print the correct values
(see example on side).
MICR ADJ APK: 57, 47, 52, 51, 47
MICR ADJ PRG: 26, 28, 26, 25, 27
MICR ADJ VAL: 26
MICR ADJ RES: OK
16. Always check the value "MICR ADJ RES": OK This value is of great importance; it certifies that the MICR head
is working correctly.
17. Proceed to check the JITTER.
Checking the JITTER
1. At the end of the procedure for calibrating the MICR,
all the LEDs on the printer will be illuminated.
2. Insert the JITTER board, code XYAB4581, being careful to keep the magnetic band of the board in a horizontal
position, oriented downwards and aligned completely to the left.
3. The printer performs a magnetic transaction.
4. Re-insert the JITTER board with the magnetic band in a horizontal position, oriented downwards and aligned
with the centre.
5. The printer performs a magnetic transaction.
6. For the third time, insert the JITTER board with the magnetic band in a horizontal position, oriented downwards
and aligned completely to the right.
7. The printer performs a magnetic transaction.
8. Insert an A4 sheet.
9. The calibration values are printed (Magnetic Test) - Refer to the figure on the following page.
10. Check that the result of the tests is OK for all the measurements.
11. Switch off the printer.
NOTE: if only the Horizontal Magnetic option is present, during the calibration phase the printer requests
only testing of the JITTER.

Calibrating the scanner
1. Open the printer cover.
2. Power on the printer, with the cover open, keeping the three console keys pressed.
3. Wait until the acoustic signal that indicates that the calibration and adjustment procedure has begun.
4. Close the printer cover.
5. Press the STATION2 key and wait until there is a complete
mechanical reset of the printer.
6. Press the STATION2 key again.
7. Insert the scanner calibration sheet, code XYAB3976, with the opaque face turned upwards and aligned
completely to the left.
8. Wait for calibration of the CIS on the scanner front/back.
9. Wait for calibration of the front/back left /TOF margin.
10. Introduce an A4 sheet for printing the calibration parameters. See the figure on the following page.
For the calibration parameters printed, check:
•
The presence of the FRONT SCAN and the REAR SCAN;
•
That there are no failures. Failure: None;
•
that the values of the parameter "Mechanical scan pixel overlap" for the FRONT SCAN and for the REAR SCAN
are both less than 20/300". In the case that these values are higher, repeat the calibration paying maximum
attention to aligning the calibration sheet completely on the left.
After the calibration, during the self-test phase, the printer indicates: Scanner front/rear present.
NOTE: to print the calibration parameters without changing the current values, just enter the procedure for
printing the calibration values for photosensors: the scanner values will be printed after those for
the photosensors.

Chapter 5 - MACHINE DIAGNOSTICS
POWER-ON SELF-TEST
The PR2 plus features a set of diagnostic tests that are activated automatically at power-on.
At the end of the self-test phase, if no errors have been detected,
the printer switches to READY status (ON and READY LEDs on
the console on).
Any FW or HW faults are highlighted by LEDs on the console.
ERROR MESSAGES
In the following are shown two tables indicating the meaning of the LEDs in relation to the type of error situation
encountered during the auto-diagnostics phase. The first refers to printers with the serial number 8.xxx.xxx, the
second to printers with the serial number 1.xxx.xxx.
Faults are classified as follows:
1. Non-recoverable fault. Blocks the machine and is eliminated only by switching off the printer and carrying out
the necessary repairs.
2. Fault that can be recovered by the operator eliminating the problem (paper jam) and then pressing the
STATION1 key with the cover open.
3. Anomaly recoverable by calibrating the printer (for example, calibrating photosensors).

MACHINE DIAGNOSTICS
A technique for carrying out the operation is described below that may guide the less expert service engineer.
The operator who has detected a malfunction is able to provide information about operating status and the error
signals output by the printer when the fault occurred.
Repetition of the fault, where possible, may make it easier to trace the problem.
For diagnostic purposes, it is important to check whether the fault is repetitive or occasional.
Operating condition analysis
Working environment
•
Certain problems may be caused by the environment if this is too cold, hot or damp.
•
The machine must not be positioned close to air conditioning system outlets or exposed to the rays of the sun.
•
Check that the internal ventilation slots are not obstructed especially if the printer is installed in a cabinet.
•
Certain forms, documents or office accessories placed close to the machine may reduce internal ventilation
with consequent overheating.
•
Avoid leaving on the cover or in the vicinity of the printer, staples, elastic bands or other small objects that could
be sucked inside.
Accessories and forms
•
Check that the accessories fitted on the machine are original and in good condition.
•
Check that the documents inserted in the printer comply with machine specifications and are in good condition
as described in the section “DOCUMENTS THAT CAN BE HANDLED BY THE BASIC MACHINE” on page 1 3.
Printer operating status
•
Check for any dirt or paper and ink on inside parts of the machine that may affect the performance of the
various devices.
•
Check for any internal damage due to insertion of documents with paper-clips, metal staples, pins or sample
holders.
•
Check lubrication of all parts for which this is prescribed. See the section “LUBRICATION” on page 6 - 1.
Identifying the problem
Examining all the information gathered (from the Operator, printer error signals, analysis of documents on which the
fault has been encountered, repetition of the error when the machine is started, etc.), trace and isolate the problem
that has occurred on the machine and which must be eliminated.
In some cases, the fault may be caused by more than one problem: it is important therefore to separate the various
problems and deal with these one by one.
XZAC4219-05
Service Manual
5-13
Tracing the cause
According to your experience, and referring to information provided in this chapter, follow a logical path to trace the
fault, from the most likely cause to the most remote possibility, until you have identified the faulty part.
Eliminating the fault
Carry out the repair so that the machine can perform all its functions.
Testing the machine
Once the machine has been repaired, carry out a general cleaning and complete test of the machine possibly with
the Operator present, to check that the problem has been eliminated and that no other faults have occurred.

FAULT CLASSIFICATION
To simplify the tracing of faults, these have been divided into:
•
Faults at power-on;
•
Faults during writing of the document;
•
Faults with document handling.
The most frequent faults encountered and possible remedies are listed for each assy.
The classifications provided cannot cover all the faults that may occur; if the fault is not amongst those classified, it
may be useful to refer to the description of a similar fault.

Chapter 6 - MAINTENANCE
This chapter examines the cleaning and lubrication operations, and a number of mechanical adjustments necessary
for correct operation of the printer.
CLEANING
For correct functioning of the printer, it is suggested to clean parts of the machine periodically and after each
servicing.
Cleaning the case
Switch off the printer, disconnect it from the power outlet and clean the case with a damp cloth; do not use corrosive
substances such as solvents, alcohol, benzene or products with abrasive components.
Cleaning the paper paths
Clean all paper paths including the paper feed rollers of the insertion slot, taking care to remove any scraps of
ribbon or paper that may be deposited on parts and also any foreign objects.
LUBRICATION
Although operations for restoring the lubrication and grease levels are not normally required during the life-time of
the printer, it is nevertheless the responsibility of the field technician during every service intervention to check
them. When it is necessary to replace mechanical parts that were originally greased, proceed applying a same
level of grease.
The only points that may require restoration of lubrication (with oil) are:
•
Print carriage sliding shaft
•
Carriage felt.

PROCEDURE FOR CLEANING / REPLACING THE PHOTOSENSORS
Use a jet of compressed air from a spray can to blow accurately through the paper insertion slot to remove any dust
from the photosensor units for document presence/alignment. After opening the upper structure, blow into the
optical fibre zones, pointing the jet of air inside the paper passage area to remove any dust that may be present in
the optical fibre nozzles.

FIRMWARE AND CHARACTER GENERATORS
Machine firmware
In addition to that separate from the generator and from the set characters, the management firmware of the printer
is controlled independently in load operations in order to facilitate immediate access for modifications to the
characters area.
The basic memory of the printer is a 1-MB Flash EPROM on which the management FW, character generators and
characters sets are held and can be replaced on line.
A second Flash EPROM (optional) with the same capacity, able to contain complex character sets or high volumes
of macros and logos, can be installed on the motherboard.
The machine firmware comprises the following emulations:
•
Olivetti environment: STD 12/14 controlled protocol with native PR2 E environment and PR40+ and PR2845
emulation. Industry standard emulation IBM Proprinter II and Proprinter X24.
•
IBM environment: Emulation protocol 9068 with coverage of the 4722 model, Industry standard emulation IBM
Proprinter II and Proprinter X24.
•
Wincor-Nixdorf environment: Emulation protocol SNI 4915 with coverage of models 4905, Industry standard
emulation EPSON LQ 2550.
