CHAPTER 1 PRODUCT INFORMATION
1 FEATURES
1.1.1 Compact color printer
The depth dimension of this printer is narrowed down by miniaturizing the image formation system units such as ITB unit, rotary, etc. The weight of it is reduced by adopting a
molded-plastic body frame, simplifying mechanical units, and making the multi-purpose
tray the only pick-up source in the printer.
1.1.2 Reduced wait time and low power consumption
This printer has realized wait time reduction and energy saving as compared to the models
using the roller fixing method by adopting the on-demand fixing method.
1.1.3 EP-87 DRUM CARTRIDGE
The drum cartridge, ITB unit, and ITB toner case are integrated into the EP-87 drum cartridge. This allows the burdensome replacement procedure of consumable parts to be minimized for users. It resulted in the enhancement of user maintenance.
1.1.4 Employment of Canon Advanced Printing Technology
With Canon Advanced Printing Technology, data can be processed within a host computer.
This frees the printer from the PDL conversion and image processing, increasing the
speed perforance and reducing the cost.

3 SAFETY INFORMATION
3.1 Laser Safety
The laser/scanner unit emits invisible laser beam. DO NOT disassemble the unit as the
laser beam can possibly damage your eyes. The unit cannot be adjusted in the field. The
following label is attached to the cover of the unit:
F01-301-01
3.2 Toner Safety
Toner is a harmless substance composed of plastics and a small amount of pigment.
If you get toner on your skin or clothes, remove as much as possible with dry tissue and
then wash it with cold water. If you wash in hot water, the toner gels and becomes hard to
remove. As toner easily decomposes vinyl material, do not let it come into contact with the
material.
3.3 Ozone Safety
An infinitesimal amount of ozone gas (O3) is generated during corona discharge from the
cleaning charging roller used in this printer. The ozone gas is emitted only when the printer
is operating.
The printer meets the ozone emission standard decided by the Underwriters Laboratories
Inc. (UL) when it is shipped from the factory.
3.4 Power Supply Safety
Note that even if the power switch is turned off, the current still flows to the primary side
of the power supply unit.
Unplug the power cord before disassembling and reassembling the printer.

CHAPTER 1 PRODUCT INFORMATION
5.4.2 Storing the unsealed cartridges
A drum cartridge contains a photosensitive drum coated with an organic photoconductor
(OPC) that deteriorates when exposed to strong light. A toner cartridge contains toner. Advise the customer correct storing and handling of the cartridges.
a. Storage precautions
1) Store the cartridge always in its protection bag.
2) Avoid areas exposed to sunlight or near windows. Do not leave a cartridge in a car for a
long time, as the inside of the car can get extremely hot.
3) Avoid areas that get extremely hot and humid or extremely cold and dry. Also, avoid
areas where the temperature can change suddenly.
4) Avoid a salty air environment or areas exposed to corrosive gases, such as aerosols.
5) Store the cartridge in the temperature range 0 to 35 °C.
6) Keep cartridges away from computer CRT displays, disk drives, and floppy disks.
7) Keep the cartridge out of reach of children.
b. Handling precautions
1) Before installing a new toner cartridge in the printer, distribute the toner evenly as
shown in F01-503-04. Rocking it any other way may result in toner leaking from the
developing cylinder.
After installing a new cartridge, print three to five test patterns to check for toner leakage
to avoid image defects.
2) Before transporting the printer, remove all the cartridges.
Place the removed cartridges in their protection bag to avoid exposing them to light.
3) Do not expose all the cartridges to sunlight or strong light, since they are sensitive to
light. Otherwise, it may result in image defects.
4) Do not touch or scratch the surface of the photosensitive drum.
5) Do not stand all the cartridges on end or turn them upside down. Labeled side of the
cartridges should be facing up always.
6) Do not attempt to disassemble any cartridges.
7) Do not touch the waste toner detection window on the drum cartridge.

7.2 Canon Advanced Printing Technology (CAPT)
The term Canon Advanced Printing Technology (hereafter (CAPT) refers to a system of
processing data in which printing speed is reduced and operation is made easier for more
user-friendly printing in a Microsoft Windows environment. In CAPT, the following takes
place so as to generate output as fast and as easily as possible:
• Instead of converting the print data coming from the application into the printer's page
description language (PDL), it turns it into resource data which is GDI-compatible.
• It turns the resulting GDI-compatible source data into dot matrix data on the host computer and sends the result to the host computer.
• It allows making selections to set up a printing environment using dialog boxes on the
host computer.

CHAPTER 2
OPERATION AND TIMING
1. This chapter describes the printer functions, the relationships between mechanisms and
circuits, and the timing of operations. Mechanical linkages are indicated by black and
white lines (
), the flow of control signals by solid arrows (
), and the
flow of groups of signals by outline arrows (
).
2. An active-high signal is indicated by “H” or by a signal name without a slash in front of
it, such as “PSNS.” An active-low signal is indicated by “L” or by a signal name with a
slash in front of it, such as “/SCNON.”
A signal that is “H” or has a name without a slash is active at the supply voltage level
(indicating that the signal is being output), and inactive at ground level (indicating that
the signal is not being output).
A signal that is “L” or has a slash in front of its name is active at ground level, and inactive at the supply voltage level.
There is a microcomputer in this printer. But as the internal operation of the microcomputer cannot be checked, an explanation of the operation of the microcomputer has been
left out.
As it is assumed that no repair will be made to customer circuit boards, the explanation
of board circuits is limited to an outline using block diagrams. So there are two types of
circuit explanations; (1) everything from the sensor to the input sections of the major
circuit boards, (2) everything from the output sections of the major circuit boards to the
loads. These are explained with block diagrams according to the function.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
2.2.3 Motor/fan control
This printer utilizes three DC motors and three stepping motors.
One of the three DC motors is used for image formation, the second one, for image formation/paper feed, and the third one, as a fan motor to avoid a temperature rise in the
printer. Two of the three stepping motors are used for image formation, and the other, for
paper feed. Since the printer transfers toner in four colors onto the same areas on the ITB,
subtle changes in motor speed may result in color misregistration. The DC motors used for
image formation are controlled high-precisely for rev fluctuations caused by loads.
The specifications of motors used in this printer are listed in T02-202-01.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
a. Main motor control
This control is utilized to drive the main motor (DCM701).
The DCM701, a three-phase, eight-pole DC motor with a built-in drive circuit, drives
each roller used for paper feed and image formation.
The DC controller drives the motor by controlling the MAIN MOTOR ACCELERATION
(/MAIMACC) signal and MAIN MOTOR DECELERATION (/MAIMDEC) signal.

The operations of the main motor are discussed next.
The CPU in the DC controller rotates the motor by setting the /MAIMACC signal “L”
through the ASIC.
The CPU monitors the MAIN MOTOR SPEED DETECTION (MAIMFG) signal. The
CPU out-puts the /MAIMACC signal when the motor does not reach specified revs, and
outputs the/MAIMDEC signal when it exceeds a specified rev. Then, the CPU controls these
signals to adjust the motor revs to a specified value.
The CPU determines a main motor failure, then stops the printer engine, and notifies the
failure to the video controller, under the following conditions:
1) The period of the MAIMFG signal does not satisfy a specified period within 100 ms after the start of main motor drive.
2) The period of the MAIMFG signal goes out of a specified period continuously for more
than 1 seconds after it once reaches the value.

b. Developing rotary motor control
This control is utilized to drive the developing rotary motor (DCM703).
The DCM703, a three-phase, eight-pole DC motor with a built-in encoder, drives the developing rotary.
The DC controller drives the motor by controlling the DEVELOPING ROTARY MOTOR

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
The operations of the developing rotary motor are discussed next.
The CPU in the DC controller outputs the two signals (ROTMON, /ROTMPWM) to the
developing rotary motor driver (IC103) after receiving a print command. The IC103 rotates
the DCM703 by outputting the MOTOR DRIVE signal to the DCM703 based on the two
signals. In parallel with it, the CPU monitors the DEVELOPING ROTARY HOME POSITION DETECTION (ROTHPS) signal.
There is a home position flag located on the developing rotary. It interrupts the sensor
(PS51) as the rotary rotates. This allows the ROTHPS signal to output “L”.
The CPU monitors the two ENCODER DETECTION (ENCSNS1, ENCSNS2) signals
output from the encoder (Note) of the DCM703 when the output of the ROTHPS becomes
“H”. It detects motor speed from a time difference between the ENCSNS1 and ENCSNS2
signals. It controls the output of the /ROTMPWM signal to adjust the revs of the DCM703
to a specified value.
The CPU determines a developing rotary motor failure, then stops the printer engine, and
notifies the failure to the interface controller, under the following conditions:
1) When the CPU cannot detect ENCODER DETECTION signal within 5 seconds after
the start of the developing rotary motor drive.
2) When the pulse count for ENCODER DETECTION signal does not fit in the prescribed
range, (within ± 200 of a targeted pulse count memorized by CPU )after a period of time
from the start of the drive when the developing rotary motor becomes Ready.
The encoder used in this printer consists of a disk, reflective sensor, and detection unit. The disk is installed on the motor shaft. The disk rotates as the
motor does. The disk has reflective areas and interrupting areas alternately
located on its surface. The sensor strikes light to the rotating disk and sends
the monitoring results of the reflected light to the detection unit. The detection unit monitors the results constantly. It generates the two ENCODER
DETECTION (ENCSNS1, ENCSNS2) signals based on the tim-ing of detecting the reflective and interrupting areas on the disk and sends the signals
to the DC controller.

d. Cooling fan
The Cooling fan, a DC brushless motor with a built-in Hall device, cools off around the
fixing unit, power supply unit, high-voltage power supply PCB, and cartridge.
The CPU (IC101) controls the cooling fan.
The CPU outputs the FAN DRIVE (FAN1D) signal after receiving a print command from
the interface controller and rotates the cooling fan. After the completion of a print operation,
the CPU rotates the fan for a specified period based on internal temperature by monitoring
the internal temperature detection thermistor (TH3). Then it stops the fan.(Refer to the table
below)
The CPU monitors the FAN LOCK DETECTION (/FAN1S) signal while the cooling fan
is rotating. If the signal remains “H” continuousl y for more than 10 seconds, the CPU determines a fan failure, then stops the printer engine, and notifies the failure to the interface controller.

PRIMARY TRANSFER CURRENT FEEDBACK (TR1S) signal sent from the primary
transfer high-voltage generation circuit and performs rated current control.
In full-color printing, as four toner layers in each colors are piled up on the
ITB in primary transfer, the holding force of toner weakens as the transfer
process progresses for the 1st color, 2nd color... Therefore, after transferring the first color, the primary transfer DC (positive) bias is increased for
the toner in the rest of the colors to gain the holding force of the toner.
2.3.5 Secondary transfer bias generation
The secondary transfer bias is output to transfer a toner image on the ITB onto paper.
Two kinds of the biases, DC positive bias and DC negative bias, are generated in the secondary transfer high-voltage generation circuit in the high-voltage power supply circuit. The
DC positive bias is output to the secondary transfer roller in toner transfer. The DC negative

The high-voltage power supply circuit applies these secondary transfer biases to the secondary transfer roller according to a sequence.
The following are the biases applied at each sequence:
• Print bias (DC positive):
This bias is applied to the secondary transfer roller to transfer a toner image on the ITB
onto paper in a print sequence.
• Cleaning bias (DC negative):
This bias is applied to the secondary transfer roller to return residual toners adhered on
the secondary transfer roller to the ITB in a warm-up or last rotation sequence.
The values of the secondary transfer bias vary according to the DC controller.

This control circuit has the following four controls and functions:
Heater temperature control - Maintains the fixing heater at a specified temperature.

the power source to which the printer is connected.
Protective function - Shuts off the power supply to the fixing heater when the heater is
overheating.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
The surface temperature of the fixing heater is detected with the two thermistors (TH1,
TH2) attached to the heater.
The main thermistor (TH1) is for fixing temperature control and the sub thermistor is for
temperature rise detection at the end of the heater. When the surface temperature of the
heater increases, the resistance levels of these two thermistors (TH1, TH2) are reduced and
the voltage levels of the FIXING HEATER TEMPERATURE DETECTION (FSRTH1,
FSRTH2) signals change.
The CPU (IC101) in the DC controller monitors the voltage levels of these two signals
(FSRTH1, FSRTH2) and outputs the FIXING HEATER DRIVE (FSRD) signal based on the
voltage level through the ASIC. In the fixing heater drive circuit, the fixing heater is controlled with this signal so that the temperature of it is adjusted to a specified value.
This printer performs the following fixing temperature controls according to a heater temperature condition:
1) Start-up temperature control: The fixing unit activation time is changed according to a
heater temperature at start-up.
2) Print temperature control: The temperature of the fixing heater is adjusted to a target
temperature during a print operation.
3) Between-sheets temperature control: The temperature of the fixing heater is set lower
than a target temperature to prevent a temperature rise of fixing film between sheets during a continuous print operation.
When printing narrow paper in mono-color continuously, throughput is decreased to provide more space in between sheets when the detection temperature by the sub thermistor exceeds 260 °C and the width of paper is less
than 210 mm, since the fixing film may overheat on its ends.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
c. Flicker prevention function
This function is utilized to prevent flicker caused by attaching lighting apparatuses to the
AC power source to which the printer is connected.
The heater drive circuit uses a triac to switch AC power. If the user connects lighting apparatuses to the power supply, to which the power connector is connected, the current flowing into the heater increases. This decreases the voltage level of the AC line and results in
flicker.
To prevent flicker, the printer utilizes a zero cross circuit that monitors the AC line voltage. The CPU detects ZERO CROSS DETECTION (ZEROX) signal to find the most suitable conductivity timing.

d. Protective function
This function detects an abnormal temperature rise of the heater and shuts the heater off.
This printer utilizes three protective functions performed by the following parts, to prevent an abnormal temperature rise of the heater:
1) CPU
2) Fixing heater safety circuit
3) Temperature fuse
Each protective function will be discussed in the following:
1) Protective function by the CPU
The CPU monitors the output voltages (FSRTH1, FSRTH2) of the main/sub thermistors.
When the FSRTH1 drops to less than 1.8V (equivalent to 245 °C or higher), or the
FSRTH2, to higher than 2.2V (equivalent to 315 °C or higher), the CPU determines a fixing
unit failure and executes the following:
1. Sets the FIXING HEATER DRIVE (FSRD) signal “L” through the ASIC and shuts off
the heater.
2. Sets the RELAY DRIVE (RLD) signal “L” through the ASIC.
3. Sets the RELAY DRIVE (RLD-) signal “L” through the fixing heater safety circuit.
4. Turns off the relay (RL301) through the relay drive circuit and shuts off the heater.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
2) Protective function by the fixing heater safety circuit
This circuit monitors the output voltages (FSRTH1, FSRTH2) of the main/sub thermistors.
When the FSRTH1 drops to less than 0.6V (equivalent to 300 °C or higher), or the
FSRTH2, to less than 2.4 V (equivalent to 340 °C or higher), the relay (RL301) is turned off
and the heater is shut off.
3) Protective function by the temperature fuse
When the temperature of the heater rises abnormally and the temperature of the temperature fuse (FU101) exceeds about 280 °C, the fuse melts and the heater is shut off.
e. Fixing unit failure detection
The CPU determines fixing unit failures under the following conditions 1) - 9), turns off
the relay (RL301), shuts off the heater, simultaneously notifies the failure to the video controller:
1) Abnormal high temperature detection by main thermistor
If the heater temperature remains higher than 245 °C (equivalent to about 1.8 V) for one
second or longer at the main thermistor, the CPU determines abnormal high temperature
detec-tion by main thermistor.
2) Start-up abnormality 1
If the heater temperature remains lower than 120 °C for one second or longer beyond 20
seconds after the start of power supply to the heater at the main thermistor, the CPU determines a start up abnormality 1.
3) Start-up abnormality 2
If the heater temperature does not exceed the temperature 5 °C below the target temperature for paper path temperature control even once within 75 seconds after the start of power
supply to the heater.
4) Low temperature detection during temperature control
If the heater temperature remains lower than 120 °C for one second or longer during temperature control, the CPU determines low temperature detection during temperature control.
5) Broken main thermistor wire
If the voltage (FSRTH1) output from the main thermistor remains higher than about 3.2 V
(equivalent to 20 °C or lower) for 0.5 second or longer, the CPU determines a broken main
thermistor wire.
6) Abnormal high temperature detection by sub thermistor
If the heater temperature remains higher than 315 °C (equivalent to about 2.2 V) for one
second or longer at the sub thermistor, the CPU determines abnormal high temperature detection by sub thermistor.

7) Abnormal low temperature detection by sub thermistor
If the heater temperature remains lower than 75 °C for 2 seconds or longer beyond 20 seconds after the start of power supply to the heater at the sub thermistor, the CPU determines
abnormal low temperature detection by sub thermistor.
2.4.3 Low-voltage power supply PCB
a. Outline
This circuit converts AC voltage input from the power supply receptacle to DC power and
supplies it to each load.
The AC power is supplied to the low-voltage power supply circuit by turning on the
power switch (SW1).
The supplied AC power is converted to the DC power required in the printer: +24 V, +5 V,
and +3.3 V. +24 V is supplied to drive loads such as the motors, solenoids, clutches, etc. and
to the high-voltage power supply circuit. +5 V is supplied to the laser driver circuit, BD circuit, and interface controller. +3.3 V is supplied to the interface controller, sensors, etc., and
the ICs, etc. in the DC controller.
+24 V can be divided into +24 VA and +24 VB. +24 VB is supplied from the low-voltage
power supply PCB to the motors and optional units constantly. +24 VA is supplied to the
high-voltage power supply circuit, developing rotary motor, toner cartridge motor, solenoids/clutches, etc. through the door open detection switch (SW2). It stops power supply
when the door switch is turned off by opening the top cover. It also functions as the DOOR
OPEN DETECTION (/DOORS) signal and the CPU detects a door open with this signal.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
b. Protective function
The low-voltage power supply circuit utilizes overcurrent/overvoltage protective functions. They automatically shut off an output voltage to prevent a power supply circuit failure
due to excessive current flow caused by a short-circuit on the load side or abnormal voltage
generation.
When the DC voltage is not output from the low-voltage power supply circuit, the
overcurrent/overvoltage protective function may be activated. If it is activated, turn off the
power switch (SW1) and rectify problems on the load side. Turn back on the switch. Be sure
not to do so within 3 minutes after turning it off.
The circuit contains two power fuses (FU1, FU2), which break and shut off the power if
overcurrent flows through the AC line.
2.5 Video Interface Control
2.5.1 Outline
The interface is used for communications between the interface controller and DC controller.
The interface controller monitors the statuses of the printer constantly using the video interface. When the printer is ready for a print operation, the video controller sends the
VIDEO signals through the video interface and the DC controller turns on/off the laser
based on those signals.

Types of the video interface signals and their purposes are described in the following.
Note that input or output parenthesized with < >, angle brackets, indicates the one on the
interface controller side.
• /TOP (VERTICAL SYNCHRONOUS) signal: <input>
This signal is a vertical scan line (sub scan line) synchronous signal and a reference signal
in the laser beam vertical direction. The interface controller sends the VIDEO signals for
each color in sequence to the DC controller within a specified period after the /TOP signal is
input. Then it aligns the leading edge of an image with that of paper.
• /BDO (HORIZONTAL SYNCHRONOUS) signal: <input>
This signal is a horizontal scan line (main scan line) synchronous signal and a reference
signal in the laser beam horizontal direction. The interface controller sends the VIDEO signals synchronized with each /BDO signal to the DC controller within a specified period after the /TOP signal is input. Then it determines the starting position of an image.
• VDI1, /VDI1, VDI2, /VDI2 (VIDEO) signals: <output>
These signals are the image information that should be printed by the printer engine. The
laser driver turns on/off the laser diode based on the signals.
These signals are differential signals. When the VDI signal is “H” and the /VDI signal is
“L”, the laser diode emits light.
• SCLK (SERIAL CLOCK) signal: <output>
This signal is a synchronous signal output from the interface controller when the DC controller and interface controller transmit/receive statuses and commands. A command is output from
the interface controller in synchronization with the falling edge of the SCLK signal .A status is
captured in synchronization with the rising edge of the SCLK signal by the video controller.
• SC (STATUS COMMAND) signal: <input/output>
This signal is a bi-directional signal to transmit/receive serial data between the interface
controller and DC controller. The interface controller and DC controller transmit/receive statuses and commands with the signal.
• /CCRT (STATUS CHANGE NOTIFICATION) signal: <input>
This signal is for notifying changes in a specified status of the printer to the interface controller. The interface controller makes inquiries about which status has changed through the
SC line after receiving the /CCRT signal.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
The laser/scanner unit adopted a “twin beam method” (Note) which scans two lines simultaneously with two laser diodes for high-speed laser scanning with the motor revs restrained. The operation sequence of the laser/scanner unit is discussed in the following:
1) The DC controller rotates the four-sided mirror when a print command is sent from the
interface controller, and then rotates the scanner motor.
2) When the scanner motor starts to rotate, the DC controller emits light from the laser
forcefully with the LASER CONTROL signal and then starts to control the rotation of
the scanner motor.
3) The DC controller rotates the motor at a specified speed with the SCANNER MOTOR
SPEED CONTROL signal.
4) The DC controller sends the VIDEO signals to the laser driver circuit after the rotational
speed of the motor reaches its target value.
5) The laser driver PCB emits light from the two laser diodes according to these signals.
6) The two laser beams strike the four-sided mirror rotating at a specified speed through
the collimator lens and cylindrical lens.
7) The laser beams reflected off the four-sided mirror focus on the photosensitive drum
through the focus lens and reflective mirror located in front of the four-sided mirror.
8) When the four-sided mirror rotates at a constant speed, the laser beam striking the photosensitive drum scans on the drum at a constant speed.
9) When the photosensitive drum rotates and the laser beam scans on the photosensitive
drum, at each specified speed, a latent image is formed on the drum.
Twin beam method
Two laser diodes (LD1, LD2) are built into the laser unit. In one scanning
operation, the laser unit emits light from the LD1 and LD2 and writes two
lines simultaneously. This enables a two-fold printing at the same print
speed.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
The DC controller sends the VIDEO (VDO1, /VDO1, VDO2, /VDO2) signals for image
formation and the LASER CONTROL (CNT0, CNT1, CNT2) signals for changing the operation mode of the laser, to the logic circuit in the laser driver IC. The laser driver performs
the laser control responsive to a combination of the CNT0, CNT1, CNT2 signals.

The following four controls are performed with the LASER CONTROL signals:
1) Laser emission control
2) Automatic power control (APC)
3) Horizontal synchronization control
4) Image mask control
The following describes each control performed in this control.
3.2.2 Laser emission control
In this control, the laser diodes (LD1, LD2) are turned on/off based on the VIDEO signals.
When the laser drive IC goes into print mode, the laser driver PCB turns on the laser diodes with a specified amount of light or turns it off according to the VIDEO (VDO1, /
VDO1, VDO2, /VDO2) signals sent from the interface controller.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
3.2.3 Automatic power control (APC)
This control is utilized to maintain amount of light emitted from the laser diodes at a
specified amount.
There are two kinds of the APC, initial APC (Note:1) and between-lines APC (Note:2).
They perform in the same way. The control procedures are described below.
1) When the laser driver IC goes in to LD1 force on mode, the laser driver circuit emits
light from the LD1 forcefully.
2) The light amount of the laser diode is detected by the photo diode (PD). Then it is converted to voltage level and compared with the reference voltage (voltage level equivalent
to a target laser light amount) in the comparator.
3) The laser driver circuit controls the laser current until the voltage level of the LD1 laser
light amount reaches the standard voltage.
4) Then, when the laser driver IC goes into LD force off mode, the LD1 is turned off forcefully. The laser driver circuit stores the adjusted laser light amount in the C16.
5) After the light amount adjustment of the LD1, the laser driver IC goes into LD2 force on
mode and the laser driver circuit emits light from the LD2 forcefully. The laser light
amount of the LD2 is adjusted in the same way the LD1 is done. The laser driver circuit
stores the adjusted laser light amount of the LD2 in the C18.
Note 1. The APC performed at scanner motor start-up. It adjusts the laser
light amount and detects a laser failure. (See page 2-35 for details
on laser failure.)
Note 2. The APC performed during the print period. It performs the laser
light amount adjustment for one line before the first line starts to be
written.
3.2.4 Horizontal synchronous control
This control is utilized to determine a starting position in the image horizontal direction.
The control procedures are described below.
1) The DC controller outputs the LASER CONTROL signals in a combination of which
the laser drive IC goes into LD1 force-on mode or LD2 force-on mode during the
unblanking period (Note) and emits light from the laser diodes (LD1, LD2) forcefully.
2) Each laser beam is sent to the BD PCB located on the scanning path of laser beams.
3) The BD circuit detects these laser beams and generates the BD INPUT (/BDI) signal.
The signal is sent to the DC controller.
4) The DC controller generates the HORIZONTAL SYNCHRONOUS (/BDO) signal
based on the/BDI signal and sends the /BDO signal to the interface controller.
5) The interface controller, after inputting the /BDO signal, outputs the VIDEO (VDI1, /
VDI1,VDI2, /VDI2) signals to the DC controller so that the starting position in the image horizontal direction is determined.
The unblanking period is a period while light is emitted from the laser diodes in non-image areas.

This control is utilized to avoid laser beam emission on the non-image areas during periods other than the unblanking period.
The DC controller let the laser driver IC go into LD force off mode to turn off the laser
diodes (LD1, LD2) forcefully while the laser beam scans on non-image areas during periods
other than the unblanking period. This status is called an image mask status, which the laser
diodes (LD1, LD2) do not emit light even though the VIDEO (VDI1, /VDI1, VDI2, /VDI2)
signals are input during this period. Control timing for the image masking is determined
based on paper size information sent from the interface controller.
If the length of paper measured with the registration sensor (PS711) is longer than paper
size information, the DC controller puts the image masking forcefully to avoid soiling the
secondary transfer roller.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
3.2.6 Laser failure detection
The DC controller detects a condition of the control in order for the laser control to be
performed properly.
If the laser current monitor signal (PDOUT) cannot be detected when the scanner motor is
started up or when APC is under way, the DC controller will assume the condition to indicate a fault in the scanner block and stop the printer engine; at the same time, it will communicate the fact to the interface controller.
3.3 Scanner Motor Control

The control is utilized to rotate the scanner motor in order to strike laser beams to a

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
3.3.2 Scanner motor speed control
This control is utilized to rotate the scanner motor at a constant speed by the DC controller controlling the scanner motor drive IC.
The scanner motor, which is integral with the scanner motor drive circuit, is a 3-phase,
12- pole DC brushless motor with a built-in Hall device.
The operations of the scanner motor control are described in the following.
After receiving a print command, the CPU in the DC controller sets the SCANNER MOTOR ACCELERATION (/ACC) signal “L” through the ASIC and then the scanner motor
starts to rotate.
The /BDI signal is sent from the BD circuit as the CPU emits light from the laser forcefully during scanner motor rotation. The ASIC compares a period of the /BDI signal with
the reference clock in the frequency comparator. Then it controls the scanner motor revs by
controlling the /ACC signal and /DEC signal until the revs reach a specified value.
3.3.3 Scanner motor failure detection
The DC controller determines whether the scanner motor rotates at specified revs by
monitoring the /BDI signal sent from the BD circuit.
The DC controller determines a optical unit failure or BD error, stops the printer engine,
and notifies the failure to the interface controller, under the following conditions:
1) Optical unit failure
If the detected period of the /BDI signal does not satisfy a specified range within 20 seconds at scanner motor start-up, or if the /BDI signal cannot be detected for 0.5 second
after the detected period of the signal has satisfied a specified range, the DC controller
determines a optical unit failure.
2) BD error
If the input period of the /BDI signal is not within the range of +/-1.7% of the scanner
motors specified revs during a print operation after the motor has reached its specified
revs, the DC controller determines a BD error.

4 IMAGE FORMATION SYSTEM
4.1 Outline
The image formation system, which serves as the nerve center of the printer, forms a toner
image on paper.
It consists of a developing cylinder, four toner cartridges containing toner, a drum cartridge containing the ITB, photosensitive drum, etc., a developing rotary storing the toner
cartridges, and a fixing unit, etc. These parts are controlled by the DC controller.
After receiving a print command from the interface controller, the DC controller controls
the developing rotary, laser/scanner unit, high-voltage power supply circuit to form an image based on the VIDEO signals on paper.
The toner cartridges and drum cartridge come with built-in memory tags that store cartridge usage condition information, etc. The DC controller performs reading and writing.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.2 Image Formation Process
An image formation process is the basic procedures of operations for image formation.
The process can be divided into 5 blocks and 12 steps. By performing steps in each block,
a toner image is formed on paper.

4.2.1 Electrostatic latent image formation block
This block comprises three steps, which forms an electrostatic latent image on the photosensitive drum.
After the completion of the last step in this block, negative charges remain in areas on the
drum surface exposed to laser beams. Negative charges are removed from areas exposed to
the laser beams.
An image with negative charges on the drum is called an “electrostatic latent image” since
it is invisible to the eye.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.2.2 Developing block
This block is comprised of two steps (see Step 3 and Step 4). In this block, the image becomes visible by utilizing a developing method called contact development method, where
the toner is transferred onto the electrostatic latent image on the drum surface. In this method,
developing cylinder adheres closely to the photosensitive drum to push up the toner.
Toner (development agent) used in this printer is non-magnetic single-component toner,
composed of resins, etc.

Step 3: Auxiliary development
In this step, CPU applies DC bias onto the toner that was not charged by frictional electrification. Here, the toner becomes uniformed negative potential. The printer charges the uncharged toner by applying DC bias onto the blade inside the EP-87 toner cartridge.
The DC bias is also used as developing bias.
Step 4: Development
The toner is adhered onto an electrostatic latent image on the photosensitive drum in this
step.
The toner is insulators, and acquires a negative charge by friction due to the rotating cylinder and the blade.
When the negatively charged toner makes contact with the drum, exposed areas on the
drum are more positively charged than that on the cylinder. Then the toner charged about the
same as the cylinder adheres onto the exposed areas on the drum. The latent image on the
drum becomes visible.

4.2.3 Transfer block
This block comprises three steps, which transfers the toner image on the drum surface
onto paper.
Step 5: Primary transfer
The toner on the drum is transferred onto the ITB in this step.
A DC positive bias is applied to the primary transfer roller opposite to the drum in order
to charge the ITB positively. Then the negatively charged toner on the drum is transferred
onto the positively charged ITB. This procedure is repeated for each color (Y, M, C, Bk).
In full-color printing, as toners in four colors are piled up on the ITB, the holding force of
the toner weakens as the transfer process progresses for the 1st color, 2nd color... Therefore,
after transferring the first color, the DC positive bias is increased for each color in order to
supplement the holding force of the toner.

Step 6: Secondary transfer
The toner on the ITB is transferred onto paper in this step.
A DC positive bias is applied to the secondary transfer roller to charge the back side of a
fed paper. This allows the toner on the ITB to transfer onto paper positively.
At the completion of secondary transfer, a DC negative bias is applied to the secondary
transfer roller to avoid soiling the back of paper with the toner on the ITB.

Step 7: Separation
The elasticity of paper causes the paper to separate from the ITB in the step.

4.2.4 Fixing block
A toner image transferred onto paper in the transfer block can be smeared easily by hands
since only the electrostatic attraction holds the image on paper.
The toner on paper is melted and mixed by heat and pressure applied to it and then the
image becomes permanent.
Step 8: Fixing
This printer utilizes the on-demand method which has low thermal capacity. The temperature warm-up is quicker and there is no need of power supply to the heater during the
standby status. Consequently, the wait time has shortened and the power saving has been realized.
A DC negative bias is applied to the fixing film to strengthen the holding force of the
toner on paper and prevent the toner from scattering.
The fixing film surface is coated with fluorine to prevent an offsetting.

This block comprises the following four steps:
Residual toner
In the secondary transfer step, not all the toner on the ITB is transferred
onto paper. Some toner remains on the ITB. This toner is called the residual
toner.
Step 9: Auxiliary ITB cleaning roller charging
In this step, the holding force of the residual toner on the ITB is strengthened to prevent
the toner from falling from the ITB and scattering in the printer.
A DC positive bias is applied to the auxiliary ITB cleaning roller to charge the residual
toner on the ITB positively. Then the residual toner is pressed to the ITB.

stopper solenoid (SL93) is driven to lock the rotary.
The rotary performs engaging operations of the rotary and of the memory tag contacts,
with the engaging motor (PM704). (See the memory tag engaging control on page 2-60 for
details on an engaging operation of the memory tag contacts.)
There are two sensors for the rotary, which performs position detection and engaging detection.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.3.2 Developing rotary rotation control
This control is utilized to rotate the rotary during a print or toner cartridge removal operation in order to move each toner cartridge to its specified position.
The DC controller moves the rotary by turning on/off the developing rotary motor
(DCM703) as monitoring the position of the rotary with the developing rotary home position sensor (PS51). When the rotary stops, the DC controller drives the developing rotary
stopper solenoid (SL93) to lock the rotary.
The DC controller monitors the PS51 to determine the stopping position of the rotary. It
detects the position of the rotary from time for four cartridge flags located on the left side of
the rotary to pass the PS51.
The four cartridge flags are for detecting the developing positions for each cartridge. The
DC controller determines a cartridge developing position when these flags interrupt the
PS51, and stops the rotation of the DCM703.
The flags are used for detecting the removing position for each cartridge also. The DC
controller rotates the DCM703 for a specified period from the position at where each flag
interrupts the PS51 and then stops it. This position will be a removing position for each cartridge.
The DC controller will assume any of the following conditions to be a fault in the developing rotary locking mechanism and will stop the printer engine and, at the same time, communicate the fact to the interface controller:
1) The home position detecting flag cannot be detected by PS51.
2) A fault exits during the period of detection between flags by PS51.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.3.3 Developing rotary engaging control
This control is utilized to engage a developing cylinder in the rotary to the drum in order
to transfer the toner image on the drum onto the ITB.
In rotary engaging control, the DC controller switches the rotational direction of the engaging motor (PM704) and moves the rotary to either of two positions, engaging position
and disengaging position.
At the time of rotary engaging (travelling from a disengaging position to an engaging position), the DC controller rotates the engaging motor clockwise for a specified period. This
allows the rotary engaging cam to rotate and then the engaging plate is pressed out. The developing cylinder is engaged to the drum.
At the time of rotary disengaging (travelling from an engaging position to a disengaging
position), the DC controller rotates the engaging motor counterclockwise and instructs the
reverse operation of rotary engaging. Then the developing cylinder is disengaged from the
drum.
A mechanism used in this control is also used in a memory tag contact engaging operation. (See the memory tag contact engaging control on page 2-60 for details.)
Developing rotary position detection is performed by the DC controller monitoring the
rotary engaging sensor (PS712). (See page 2-57.)

4.3.4 Developing rotary position detection
This printer has a function of detecting the rotary engaging position between the rotary
and drum determined in the developing rotary engaging control.
This detection is performed by the DC controller monitoring the output of the engaging
sensor (PS712). The DC controller determines either of three modes: print, initial, and
memory tag communication, from whether the engaging detection flag located on the end of
the drive gear shaft interrupts the PS712.

period to switch the mode to initial mode in order to prepare for the next operation. When
the output is “L”, the DC controller cannot determine whether the printer is in initial mode
(#2 in the table above) or memory tag communication mode (#3 in the table above). In such
a case, the DC controller rotates the engaging motor counterclockwise for a specified period
to switch the mode to print mode. Then it rotates the motor clockwise for a specified

The DC controller determines a developing rotary engaging mechanism abnormality,
stops the pirnter engine, and notifies it to the interface controller under the following conditions in engaging failure detection:
1) The PS712 does not output “L” even if the engaging motor rotates counter clockwise for
a specified period (0.2 seconds) at developing rotary disengaging.
2) The PS712 does not output “H” even if the eng aging motor rotates clockwise for a

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
This toner cartridge is structured with a developing cylinder, and stirrer. The EP-87 toner
cartridge motor rotates these parts.
The memory tag is installed in each cartridge. The engaging motor rotates as required to
operate the memory tag contact cam. This allows the memory tag contact on the printer side
and that on the cartridge side to contact each other, and enables the DC controller to communicate with each toner cartridge.
Toner level detection is performed with an LED (light emitter) and a photodiode (light receiver) on the developing rotary/toner level detection circuit.
The functions and controls that the cartridge have are described next.
4.4.2 Memory tag
The memory tag is a non-volatile memory built into the toner cartridge. It stores cartridge
usage condition data. The DC controller reads and writes memory data constantly to detect
the usage conditions of each toner cartridge.
The DC controller reads and writes to the memory tag through the memory tag contacts.
The memory tag contacts are disengaged from the memory tag normally. However, when
the DC controller reads and writes to the memory tags in each toner cartridge, it performs
memory tag contact engaging control (see page 2-60 for details). The DC controller starts
memory data communication as the toner cartridge contacts with the memory tag contact.
After receiving memory data, the DC controller updates the information with specified timing and writes it to the memory tags for each cartridge.
The DC controller instructs the memory tag to read or write under the following conditions:
<Read>
• Power is turned on.
• Top cover is closed.
<Write>
• After 50 papers printing.
• When a Change Has Occurred to the Data on the Lives of Parts.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.4.3 Memory tag contact engaging control
This control is utilized to contact memory tag contacts on the printer side with that on the
toner cartridge side in order to enable communication between the memory tags in each
toner cartridge and the printer.
The DC controller moves the memory tag contact to either of two positions, engaging position or disengaging position, by switching the rotational direction of the engaging motor
(PM704).
At the time of memory tag contact engaging (travelling from a disengaging position to an
engaging position), the DC controller rotates the engaging motor counterclockwise for a
specified period. This allows the memory tag contact engaging cam to rotate. Then the contact is pressed out and engaged to the memory tag.
At the time of memory tag contact disengaging (travelling from a engaging position to a
disengaging position), the DC controller rotates the engaging motor counterclockwise and
instructs the reverse operation of the contact engaging. This allows the contact to be disengaged from the memory tag.
A mechanism used in this control is also used in a developing rotary engaging operation.
(See 2-55 for details.)
The developing rotary position detection is also performed by the DC controller monitoring the rotary engaging sensor (PS712). (See page 2-57.)

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.4.4 Cartridge presence detection
This detection is utilized to detect the presence of the cartridge.
When the power is turned on or the top cover is closed, the DC controller reads in data
(cartridge ID) from the memory tags in each toner cartridge. When the DC controller successfully reads data, it determines a cartridge presence.
If the DC controller determines a cartridge out, it notifies the error to the interface controller.
4.4.5 Toner cartridge life detection
a. Outline
This detection is utilized to detect whether the toner cartridge has reached the end of its
life.
When the power is turned on or the top cover is closed, the DC controller monitors the
following two items. It determines an toner cartridge end-of-life if either of the items
reaches its specified value.
a. Developing cylinder life (usage hour)
b. Toner level
The life of the toner cartridge is indicated to the interface controller in 2 steps (warning,
end of life); the printer engine will be stopped only when the end of life has been reached.
The life of the developing cylinder and the level of remaining toner are checked as follows:
b. Developing cylinder life detection
The life of the developing cylinder is detected by the DC controller monitoring the cumulative usage hours of the developing cylinder, which stored in the memory tag.
Developing cylinder usage hour (DC application time) data sent from the DC controller is
written in the memory tag in the EP-87 toner cartridge. The DC controller updates data with
specified timing. If updated data, developing cylinder cumulative usage hours, reaches a
specified value, the DC controller determines a developing cylinder end-of-life.
c. Toner level detection
This printer utilizes a through-beam sensor for toner level detection.
The toner level is detected by the DC controller monitoring the toner level detection unit
structured with a light emitter (LED) and a light receiver (PD) (Note:1).
After the start of a print operation, the DC controller emits light from the LED with the
LED DRIVE (P3.3V) signal. The light emitted from the light emitter passes through the
light guide in the cartridge and enters into the cartridge. The light passes through it and
again the light guide. Then the light is detected at the light receiver and output as the
TONER LEVEL DETECTION (TONS) signal to the DC controller. The DC controller detects the toner level from the cumulative detection time of the TONS signal during one rotation of the stirrer in the cartridge.
The DC controller determines that the toner level is low when the cumulative detection
time of the TONS signal exceeds a specified value (Note:2).

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
A memory tag is installed into the drum cartridge. The memory tag contact makes contact
with the memory tag in the cartridge constantly when the cartridge is installed in the printer.
The waste toner detection is performed by an LED (light emitter) and a photodiode (light
receiver) on the waste toner detection circuit.
The functions and controls of the cartridge are discussed next.
4.5.2 Cleaning roller engaging control
In this control, the two rollers, the ITB cleaning roller and auxiliary ITB cleaning roller,
are engaged/disengaged from the ITB to clean residual toners on the ITB.
The operations of this control are described in the following:
1) At printing, the DC controller checks that the two rollers, ITB cleaning roller and auxiliary ITB cleaning roller, are at their home positions (Note:1) in secondary transfer roller
position detection (see page 2-76).
2) At the timing of the start of secondary transfer, the DC controller let out the roller engaging clutch (CL2). This transmits the drive of the main motor (DCM701) to the engaging cam.
Then the roller bushing is pushed out and the two rollers start to engage to the ITB.
3) At this point, the DC controller is monitoring the output of the PS714, When the output
becomes “L”, it lets out the CL2. This allows the cam to stop and the two rollers to stop
at each engaging position.
4) After a print operation, the DC controller let in the CL2 again for 0.2 seconds. This disengages the two rollers from the ITB.
5) The DC controller monitors the output of the PS 714, When the output becomes “L”, it
lets out the CL2. This allows the cam to stop and the two rollers to stop at each home
position. Then, it is ready for the next print operation.
Note 1. The home positions of each roller are positions at where the rollers
are disengaged from the ITB by the roller bushing.
Note 2. The operation of the engaging cam used in this control is also used
in the secondary transfer roller engaging control. (See the secondary transfer roller engaging control for details.)

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.5.4 Detecting the ITB Home Position
The machine checks the ITB home position to ensure the correct image write start position using the ITB home position sensor (PS71), which checks the position with reference to
the home position detection faces (4 light-blocking faces) found on the edge of the ITB belt
as follows:
1) When it receives the print command, the DC controller starts to rotate the ITB belt.
When PS71 detects a light-blocking face, it sends TOPSNS to the DC controller.
2) The DC controller assumes the first TOPSNS signal to indicate the home position
(HP1), and increases the count each time a new light-blocking face is detected (HP2,
HP3, HP4).
3) In the case of full color operation, the DC controller uses these signals to generate the
vertical sync signal (/TOP) 4 times, and sends them to the interface controller. Thereafter, the DC controller receives video data of each color from the interface controller 4
times, and draws images of individual colors on specific points on the ITB.
The DC controller monitors the TOPSNS signal at all times, and will identify a fault in
the ITB home position sensor in the event of the following condition; as a result, it will stop
the printer engine and, at the same time, will communicate the nature of the fault to the interface controller.
1) When the power is turned on, at the end of a print job, or the upper cover is closed, the
TOPSNS signal cannot be detected at specific intervals.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.5.6 Checking the Life of the Drum Cartridge
a. Outline
The machine uses the following mechanism to check the life of the drum cartridge.
When the power is turned on, the upper cover is closed, or a print job is over, the DC controller checks on the following 2 items, and will assume that the cartridge has reached the
end of its life if any of them reaches a specific value:
• life of photosensitive drum (hours of use)
• amount of waste toner
The life of the drum cartridge is indicated to the interface controller in 2 steps (warning,
end of life); the printer engine is stopped only when the end of life has been identified.
The following mechanisms are used to detect the end of life of the photosensitive drum
and the level of waste toner:
b. End of Life of the Photosensitive Drum
The end of life of the photosensitive drum is checked by the DC controller by monitoring
how long the photosensitive drum has been used with reference to the data stored in the
memory tag. The memory tag retains data on the period during which the photosensitive
drum has been used (i.e., length of primary AC application + number of drum rotations) sent
by the DC controller.
The DC controller updates the data each tine the power is turned on, the upper cover is
closed, or a print job is over; when the cumulative period of use reaches a specific level, it
will identify the condition as indicating the need of replacement of the drum cartridge.
c. Waste Toner
The machine is equipped with a mechanism to find out when the image cartridge becomes
full of waste toner. The detection is undertaken by the DC controller by monitoring the output of the waste toner detection mechanism, which consists of a light-emitting member
(LED) and a light-receiving member (PD) as well as a PCB.
The DC controller causes the LED to emit light using the LED drive signal (P3.3V); the
light from the light-emitting member reaches the cartridge along the light guide mounted to
the cartridge. The light them moves through the cartridge, and is detected by the light-receiving member after passing along the light guide; the result is then sent to the DC controller in the form of the waste toner detection signal (WASTONS).
The DC controller checks the level of waste toner with reference to the cumulative period
of WASTONS for each single rotation of the stirring plate inside the cartridge when the
power is turned on, the upper cover is closed, or a print job is over, and will assume that the
cartridge is full of waste toner if it finds that the level has reached a specific value.

4.6.2 Secondary transfer roller engaging control
This control is utilized to perform an engaging/disengaging operation between the secondary transfer roller and ITB in order to transfer the toner on the ITB to paper.
The operations of this control are described in the following:
1) At printing, the DC controller checks that the secondary transfer roller is at its home position (Note:1) in secondary transfer roller home position detection (see page 2-76).
2) At the timing of the start of secondary transfer, the DC controller let in the roller engaging clutch (CL2). This transmits the drive of the main motor (DCM701) to the engaging
cam. Then the engaging lever is pushed out and the secondary transfer roller starts to engage to the ITB.
3) At this point, the DC controller is monitoring the output of the PS714, When the output
becomes “L”, it lets out the CL2. This allows the cam to stop and the secondary transfer
roller to stop at its engaging position.
4) After a print operation, the DC controller lets in the CL2 again for 0.2 seconds. This disengages the secondary transfer roller from the ITB.
5) The DC controller monitors the output of the PS714, When the output becomes “L”, it
lets out the CL2. This allows the cam to stop and the secondary transfer roller to stop at
its home position.
Note 1. The home position for the secondary transfer roller is the state in
which it is disengaged from the ITB.
Note 2. The operation of the engaging cam used in this control is also used
in the cleaning roller engaging control. (See the cleaning roller engaging control for details.)

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.6.3 Secondary roller position detection
This printer has a function of detecting the engaging position of the secondary transfer
roller between the roller and ITB.
The home position of the roller is detected by the DC controller monitoring the roller engaging sensor (PS714) and FEEDBACK (TR2S) signal for the secondary bias.
The DC controller detects whether the roller is at its home position (Note) when the
power is turned on or the top cover is closed. This detection is performed by a flag located
at the end of the engaging detection gear interrupting the PS714. When the roller is at its
home position, the PS714 outputs “L”.
When the engaging detection gear is not at its home position; the PS714 is “H”, the DC
controller rotates the main motor and let in the roller engaging clutch (CL2) for a specified
period to return the gear to its home position.
Then the DC controller detects the position of the secondary transfer roller, engaging and
disengaging, by monitoring the FEEDBACK (TR2S) signal for the secondary transfer bias.
When the roller is at its engaging position, the resistance of the roller increases and the
value of the TR2S signal decreases since the roller contacts with the ITB. When the roller is
at a disengaging position, the resistance decreases and the value increases.
If the value of the TR2S signal does not vary when the CL2 is on, the DC controller stops
the printer engine and notifies a secondary transfer roller engaging mechanism abnormality
to the interface controller.
The home position for the secondary transfer roller is the state in which it is
disengaged from the ITB.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
4.7 Image stabilization calibration control
4.7.1 Outline
This printer performs image stabilization control using the image density detection function (see note) in order to reduce image density variations caused by changes in environments, deterioration of the drum or toner, etc.
Two kinds of the image stabilization controls, image density calibration (D-max) control
and image halftone calibration (D-half) control, are executed as necessary.
Specified conditions to perform image stabilization calibration control are listed in the
following:
• Power is turned on.
• Cartridge is replaced.
• After printing 800 images or more (mono color: 800 pages, full color: 200 pages)
• After 12 hours in the absence of a print command
• In response to a command for execution from the interface controller
Image density detection function
This printer has functions of striking light to image density patterns in each
color formed on the ITB and measuring the density of the patterns from the
amount of reflected light.
The DC controller emits light from the density sensor and strikes the light
to each detection pattern. Then the reflected light off the patterns is received
at a light receiver and returned to the DC controller as the IMAGE DENSITY signals.
The DC controller converts the input IMAGE DENSITY signals (analog
values) to density values (digital values) and stores them.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
If the DC controller cannot receive any light at the light receiver during image density detection, and notifies a density sensor abnormality warning to the interface controller.
If values detected with the density sensor is out of a specified range, the DC controller
initializes the image density and notifies an image density out of guaranteed range warning
to the interface controller.
4.7.2 Image density calibration (D-max) control
This control is performed to stabilize the image density of the printer engine.
The DC controller forms density patterns in each color on the ITB as varying the developing bias when specified conditions are met. Then the DC controller measures the density of
the patterns with the density sensor and controls the developing bias to obtain a proper density based on the measured density.
4.7.3 Image halftone calibration (D-half) control
This control is utilized to measure a halftone density output from the interface controller
in order for the interface controller to perform halftone calibration, and to return the measurement results to the interface controller.
The DC controller forms image detection patterns for each color on the drum with a
proper developing bias specified in the D-max control based on image data sent from the
interface controller. Then the DC controller measures the patterns with the density sensor
and returns image data to the interface controller. The interface controller performs the halftone calibration to obtain an ideal halftone image based on data.

5 PICK-UP/FEED SYSTEM
5.1 Outline
The pick-up/feed system, which consists of various kinds of feed rollers, plays a role in
paper pick-up and feeding.
This printer utilizes the multi-purpose tray for a pick-up source and the face-up tray and
face-down tray for a delivery source.
The presence of paper on the multi-purpose tray is detected with the multi-purpose tray
paper sensor (PS718).
The DC controller drives each roller by controlling two motors, two clutches, and one solenoid.
Three photo interrupters (PS1, PS711, PS720) on a paper path detect the reach or passage
of paper. If paper does not reach or pass each sensor unit within a specified period, the CPU
in the DC controller determines a jam and notifies a jam occurrence to the interface controller.
The configuration of the motors, solenoids, and sensors are indicated in F02-501-01.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
5.2.2 Multi-purpose tray pick-up
When printing from the multi-purpose tray, paper on it is fed into the printer one by one.
The following describes the multi-purpose tray pick-up operation:
1) When a print command is input from the interface controller, the DC controller drives
the main motor (DCM701) to rotate the ITB.
2) Within a specified period after the start of the DCM701 rotation, the multi-purpose tray
pick-up solenoid (SL92) goes on.
3) After a lifting plate for the multi-purpose tray has moved up, the multi-purpose tray
pick-up roller starts to rotate. This allows paper on the tray to be fed into the printer.
4) After a multiple-fed paper is removed with the separation pad, paper is sent to the registration roller.
5) After the skew of paper is corrected with the registration shutter (see page 2-84 for details), a feed speed is changed based on a paper type specified from the interface controller in feed speed control (see page 2-85 for details).
6) Then, the DC controller let in the registration clutch (CL1) within a specified period in
ITB home position detection function (see page 2-68 for details). This allows the drive
of the DCM701 to transmit to the registration roller and paper to be fed to the secondary
transfer roller.
7) The DC controller press the secondary transfer roller against the ITB in secondary transfer roller engaging control (see page 2-74 for details). Simultaneously, it lets in the
roller-engaging clutch (CL2). This allows the drive of the DCM701 to transmit to the
secondary transfer roller. Toner is transferred onto paper on the ITB and paper is fed to
the fixing/delivery unit.

CHAPTER 2 OPERATION AND TIMING
5.2.3 Skew correction function
This function is utilized to correct the skew of the paper to be fed, using the registration
shutter method.
The operations of this function are discussed below.
When paper is fed to the registration roller, the leading edge of paper is pushed against
the registration shutter to correct a skew (1). Paper is warped as the feed roller keeps pushing it when it is pushed against the shutter (2). The shutter is lifted up by the stiffness of paper as paper warps, and paper passes through the shutter (3). It allows the skew of paper to
be corrected.

5.2.5 Internal temperature detection
This printer utilizes a function of detecting the internal temperature in order to prevent a
temperature rise in it. The internal temperature detection thermistor (TH3) is provided for
this function.
If the DC controller detects that the internal temperature exceeds the temperature ceiling
(Td) by the TH3 in continuous printing, it widens a space between sheets to prevent an internal temperature rise.
If the temperature goes below the temperature floor (Tu), the DC controller returns the
space between sheets to normal.

5.3 Fixing/Delivery Unit
5.3.1 Outline
The fixing/delivery unit is structured with a fixing unit, which fuses toners onto paper,
and a delivery unit, which feeds paper out to the delivery tray.
The operations of the fixing/delivery unit are described in the following:
1) Paper on which toner is transferred on the ITB on, it on the ITB is fed into the fixing
unit.
2) The toner on paper is melted and mixed by the fixing film and pressure roller and paper
is delivered out the fixing unit.
3) Paper delivered out the fixing unit is detected with fixing delivery paper sensor (PS1)
and delivered out onto a delivery tray.
4) This printer utilizes two kinds of delivery sources. If the face-up cover is opened manually, paper is delivered faced up from there. If the cover is closed, paper is delivered
faced down onto the face-down tray.

5.4 Jam Detection
To detect the presence of paper and whether paper has been correctly fed, the following
paper sensors are provided:
• Registration sensor (PS711)
• Fixing delivery paper sensor (PS1)
• Fixing front paper sensor (PS720)
• Paper feed sensor (PS717)
The CPU in the DC controller determines whether a paper jam has occurred by checking
for the presence of paper at the sensor unit at the timing stored in the CPU. If the CPU determines a jam, it stops a print operation and notifies the jam occurrence to the interface
controller.
Occurrence timings for each jam are listed below. A specified period is timed at a normal
speed (1/1-speed).
5.4.1 Pick-up delay jam
When the leading edge of paper does not reach the registration sensor (PS711) or paper
feed sensor (PS717) within a specified period (t) after the start of a pick-up operation, the
CPU determines a pick-up delay jam.
t = Approx. 1.1 seconds (multi-purpose tray), approx. 1.7 seconds (250-sheet paper
feeder), approx. 2.8 seconds (500-sheet paper feeder)
5.4.2 Pick-up stationary jam
When the trailing edge of paper does not pass the registration sensor (PS711) within a
specified period (t) after the start of a re-pick-up operation (the registration clutch is on), the
CPU determines a pick-up stationary jam.
t = Approx. 3.4 seconds (any pick-up source)
5.4.3 Fixing unit wrapping jam
CPU detects fixing unit wrapping jam, when there are any print papers inside the fixing
front paper sensor when turning on the power or after closing the upper cover.
5.4.4 Delivery delay jam
When the leading edge of paper does not reach the fixing delivery paper sensor (PS1)
within a specified period (t) after the start of a re-pick-up operation (the registration clutch is
on), the CPU determines a delivery delay jam.
t = Approx. 2.3 seconds (any pick-up source)
5.4.5 Delivery stationary jam
When the leading edge of paper does not pass the fixing delivery paper sensor (PS1)
within a specified period (t) after it has passed the registration sensor (PS711), the CPU determines a delivery stationary jam.

The paper feeder has functions of picking up the paper set in the cassette and feeding it
into the printer. Pick-up/feed operation for the 250-sheet paper feeder is discussed below.
6.2.1 250-sheet paper feeder
The pick-up/feed operation in the 250-sheet paper feeder is described in the following:
1) After receiving a print command from the interface controller, the DC controller sends
the PICK-UP SOLENOID DRIVE (OP1SLD) signal to the 250-sheet paper feeder
driver circuit.
2) The driver circuit lets the pick-up solenoid (SL9) go on after receiving the OP1SLD signal from the DC controller. This allows the drive of the main motor in the printer to
transmit to the pick-up roller. Then the pick-up roller rotates.
3) The pick-up roller makes one rotation by the drive of the SL9 and picks up paper in the
cassette. Then paper is sent into the printer after multiple-fed paper are cleared by the
separation pad.

CHAPTER 4 TROUBLESHOOTING
1 PREFACE
1.1 Malfunction Diagnosis Flowchart
The malfunctions that occur in the printer are mainly classified to five factors; “image defects”, “paper jams”, “transport defects”, “malfunction”, and “malfunction status.”
If a malfunction occurred in the printer, a service engineer is to find the factor according
to the malfunction diagnosis flowchart and to clear the problem following the action step for
each malfunction.
Make sure the following points at the execution of troubleshooting.
• Make sure that the connector has no poor contact when measuring a voltage at the specified terminal of the connector.
• Make sure to touch metal part of the pr inter, before handling PCBs, to discharge static
electricity, as it can cause damage to the PCBs.
• The laser/scanner unit cannot be adjusted in the field, so do no attempt to disassemble it.

CHAPTER 4 TROUBLESHOOTING
Note 1. Before executing a test print, make sure to select the same pick-up
source and delivery source that were used when the malfunction
occurred according to the information given by the user.
If information is not available, make test prints with all feasible
combination of a pick-up source and delivery source in the printer,
and find out the factor.
Note 2. The image defect occurred at the user side might not re-occur on its
test print. In this case, make a test print from external device and
infer the defective part(s) by the output image. Then, find defective
part(s) according to the item, “ima ge formation troubleshooting.”
1.2 Initial Check
Check the following items before you diagnose malfunction. If any failure is found, a
service engineer is to clear the problem and to give the instruction to a user.
1.2.1 Installation environment
a. The power voltage is ±10 % of the rated voltage.
b. The printer is securely installed on a level surface.
c. The room temperature is kept between 10 and 30 °C, and the relative humidity, between
10 and 80 %.
d. Avoid sites generating ammonia gas, high temperature or high humidity (near water faucet, kettle, or humidifier), cold places, open flames, dusty area and sites the wind blows
in from the air-conditioning duct.
e. Avoid sites exposed to direct sunlight. If unavoidable, advise the customer to hang curtains.
f. A well-ventilated place.
g. Make sure that the power cord is inserted to the printer and the outlet securely.
1.2.2 Paper checks
a. The recommended paper for the printer is used.
b. Paper is not damp.
c. Paper is not dirty.
1.2.3 Paper sets
a. The amount of paper in the pick-up source is within specifications.
b. Paper is correctly set on the selected pick-up source.
c. The size guides are aligned with paper.
1.2.4 Cartridge sets
a. Make sure the EP-87 toner cartridges in each color are set in the printer properly.
b. Make sure the EP-87 drum cartridge is set in the printer properly.

4-3
CHAPTER 4 TROUBLESHOOTING
1.2.5 Fixing unit sets
a. Make sure the fixing unit is set in the printer properly.
1.2.6 External cover sets
a. Make sure the top cover and memory cover are closed securely.
1.2.7 Condensation
During winter, if the printer is brought from a cold place such as a warehouse into a warm
room, condensation will appear inside the printer, causing various problems.
Ex.)
a. Condensation in the optical system (four-sided mirror, reflective mirror, lens, etc.) will
result in a light print image.
b. As the photosensitive drum is cold, the resistance of the photoconductive layer is high;
this will lead to incorrect contrast.
If condensation appears, either wipe the parts with dry cloth, or leave the printer on for
10 to 20 minutes.
If the EP-87 toner cartridges are opened soon after being moved from a cold room to a
warm room, condensation may appear inside the cartridge and may cause various problems.
Be sure to instruct the user that it is necessary to leave the printer for one to two hours at
a room temperature to allow it to acclimatize to the temperature.

CHAPTER 4 TROUBLESHOOTING
1.3 Test Print
The machine is capable of generating engine test prints. If the machine has suffered a
fault, generate a test pint to help identify the location of the fault.
When the engine test print is made, a test print pattern (horizontal lines) in four colors,
magenta, cyan, yellow, and black, is printed as shown in the figure below.
A test pattern can be made by pressing the test print switch located on the front side of the
printer (see F01-401-01) once when the printer enters standby status.
The multi-purpose tray is the only possible pick-up source for test print. The optional paper feeders cannot be used.

4 STATUS AND ERROR INDICATIONS
4.1 Outline
The printer is not equipped with a status display (LCD), and it uses a PC’s display to indicate its status, error codes, and messages as needed. The screen that appears on the PC’s display is referred to as the status window. (See the diagram below.)
The status widow is a screen used to communicate to the user the state of the printer by
means of messages and animations. A message is indicated in the message areas (one main
and the other, sub). A user message is one used to prompt the user for action, while a service
message is used to prompt the service person for action.

4.2 Service Messages
A service message is indicated in response to a fault occurring in the printer, and such a
fault is referred to as a “service error.”
A service error is indicated in the message area of the status window screen, and its details are shown in the sub message area in the form of a code (e.g., Exxx, in which xxx represent a 3-digit number).
The following is a lit of service messages; for detailed instructions on actions to take, see
6. “Malfunction Status Troubleshooting” in Chapter 4.
