(2) Outline of print process
Semiconductor laser
This printer is a non-impact printer that uses a semiconductor
laser and electrostatic print process. This printer uses an OPC
(Organic Photo Conductor) for its photoconductive material.
First, voltage from the main corona unit charges the drum surface and a latent image is formed on the drum surface using a
laser beam. This latent image forms a visible image on the
drum surface when toner is applied. The toner image is then
transferred onto the print paper by the transfer corona and
fused on the print paper in the fusing section with a combination of heat and pressure.

Step-3: Developing (DC bias)
A bias potential is applied to the MG roller in the two component magnetic brush developing method, and the toner is
charged negative through friction with the carrier.
Non-image area of the drum surface charged with negative
potential repel the toner, whereas the laser exposed portions
where no negative charges exist, attract the toner. As a result,
a visible image appears on the drum surface.
Step-1: DC charge
A uniform negative charge is applied over the OPC drum surface by the main charging unit. Stable potential is maintained
by means of the Scorotron charger.
Positive charges are generated in the aluminum layer.

A Laser beam is generated from the semiconductor laser and
controlled by the print pattern signal. The laser writes onto the
OPC drum surface through the polygon mirrors and lens. The
resistance of the OPC layer decreases for an area exposed by
the laser beam (corresponding to the print pattern signal). The
beam neutralizes the negative charge. An electrostatic latent
image is formed on the drum surface.

Step-7: Optical discharge (Semiconductor laser)
Non-image area
Before the drum rotation is stopped, the semiconductor laser is
radiated onto the drum to reduce the electrical resistance in the
OPC layer and elimate residual charge, providing a uniform
state to the drum surface for the next page to be printed.
When the electrical resistance is reduced, positive charges on
the aluminum layer are moved and neutralized with negative
charges on the OPC layer.

Step-4: Transfer
The visible image on the drum surface is transferred onto the
print paper by applying a positive charge from the transfer
corona to the backside of the print paper.
Charge by the Scorotron charger
Function
The Scorotron charger functions to maintain the surface potential of the drum even at all times which. It is used to control the
surface potential regardless of the charge characteristics of the
photoconductor.
Basic function
A screen grid is placed between the saw tooth and the
photoconductor. A stable voltage is added to the screen grid to
maintain the corona current on the photoconductor.
As the photoconductor is charged by the saw tooth from the
main corona unit, the surface potential increases. This increases the current flowing through the screen grid. When the
photoconductor potential nears the grid potential, the current
turns to flow to the grid so that the photoconductor potential can
be maintained at a stable level.
Process controlling
About DC 5.2kV
Function
Step-5: Separation
The print pattern signal is converted into an invisible image by
the semiconductor laser using negative to positive (reversible)
developing method. Therefore, if the developing bias is added
before the drum is charged, toner is attracted onto the drum. If
the developing bias is not added when the drum is charged, the
carrier is attracted to the drum because of the strong electrostatic force of the drum.
To avoid this, the process is controlled by adjusting the drum
potential and the grid potential of the Scorotron charger.
Since the print paper is charged positively by the transfer
corona, it is discharged by the separation corona. The separation corona is connected to ground.
Step-6: Cleaning
Toner remaining on the drum is removed and collected by the
cleaning blade. It is transported to the waste toner collecting
section in the cleaning unit by the waste toner transport roller.
Basic function
Voltage added to the screen grid can be selected, high and low.
To make it easily understood, the figure below shows voltage

Start
1) Because the grid potential is at a low level, the drum potential is at about –400V. (Carrier may not be attracted though
the carrier is pulled towards the drum by the electrostatic
force of –400V.
2) Developing bias ( –400V) is applied when the photoconductor potential is switched from LOW to HIGH.
3) Once developing bias (–400V) is applied and the photo conductor potential rises to HIGH, toner will not be attracted to
the drum.
Stop
The reverse sequence takes place.
Retaining developing bias at an abnormal occurrence
Function
The developing bias will be lost if the power supply was
removed during print process. In this event, the drum potential
slightly abates and the carrier makes deposits on the drum because of strong static power. To prevent this, the machine incorporates a function to retain the developing bias for a certain
period and decrease the voltage gradually against possible
power loss.
Basic function
Normally, the developing bias voltage is retained for a certain
time before the drum comes to a complete stop if the machine
should stop before completing the normal print cycle. The
developing bias can be added before resuming the operation
after an abnormal interruption. Therfore, carrier will not make a
deposit on the drum surface.

Sensor scanning area
1) How to scan documents
The scanner has sensors that are arranged in a line. These sensors
scan a certain area of a document at a time and deliver outputs sequentially. When the line is finished, the next line is scanned, and this
procedure is repeated. The figure below shows the case where the latter two sections of an image which are scanned are shown with solid
lines and the former two sections which are being transmitted are
shown with dotted lines.
The direction of this line is called “main scanning direction,” and the
scanning direction “sub scanning direction.”
In the figure above, one line is divided into 4 sections. Actually, however, one line is divided into thousands of sections. For scanning, the
light receiving element called CCD is used.
The basic resolution indicates the scanner capacity. The basic resolution is expressed in dpi (dot/inch) which shows the number of light
emitting elements per inch on the document.
The basic resolution of this machine is 400dpi.
In the sub scanning direction, at the same time, the motor that drives
the optical system is controlled to scan the image at the basic resolution.

the CCD element (image sensor) where images are formed. This system is known as the reduction image sensor system. Photo energy on the CCD element is converted into electrical signals (analog signals). (Photo-electric conversion). The output signals (analog
signals) are converted into digital signals (A/D conversion) and passed to the MCU (main control/image process section). The resolution at that time is 400dpi.
The mirror unit in the scanner section is driven by the mirror motor.
The MHPS is provided to detect the home position of the copy lamp unit.

Since the upper heat roller is conductive when copy paper is
highly moistured and the distance between the transfer unit and
the fusing unit is short, the transfer current leaks through the
copy paper, the upper heat roller and the discharging brush.

Paper feed is made in two ways; the tray paper feed and the manual paper feed. The tray is of universal-type, and has the capacity
of 250 sheets. The front loading system allow you to install or remove the tray from the front cabinet.
The general descriptions on the tray paper feed and the manual paper feed are given below.
A. Cassette paper feed operation
1. The figure below shows the positions of the pick-up roller,
the paper feed clutch sleeve, and the paper feed latch in the
initial state without pressing the COPY button after lighting
the ready lamp.
The paper feed latch is in contact with the projection of the
clutch sleeve.
2. When the COPY button is pressed, the main drive motor
starts rotating to drive each drive gear.
The pick-up drive gear also is driven at that time. Since,
however, the paper feed latch is in contact with the projection of the clutch sleeve, rotation of the drive gear is not
transmitted to the pick-up roller, which does not rotate therefore.

3. After about 0.1 sec from when the main motor start rotating,
the tray paper feed solenoid (PFS) turns on at a moment.
This disengages the paper feed latch from the projection of
the clutch sleeve, transmitting rotation of the pick-up drive
gear to the paper feed roller shaft, rotating the pick-up roller
to feed the paper.
6. To release the resist roller, the tray paper feed solenoid and
the resist solenoid are turned on by the paper start signal to
disengage the resist start latch from the clutch sleeve
projection, transmitting rotation of the resist drive gear to the
resist roller shaft. Thus the paper is transported by the resist
roller.
7. After the resist roller starts rotating, the paper is passed
through the pre-transfer guide to the transfer section. Images are transferred on the paper, which is separated from
the OPC drum by the drum curve and the separation section.

from detection of paper by PPD1, the tray paper feed
solenoid (PFS) turns on so that the clutch sleeve projection
comes into contact with the paper feed latch to stop the
pick-up roller. Then the pick-up roller rotates for about 0.15
sec so that the lead edge of the paper is evenly pressed on
the resist roller, preventing against skew feeding.

opens and the manual take-up roller is pressed to the surface of the paper to start paper feeding.
4. The lead edge of the transported paper is pressed on the
resist roller by the transport roller. Then the paper is
stopped temporarily to make synchronization with the lead
edge of the image on the OPC drum.

(1) Image distortion adjustment
2) Remove the document glass.
There are following two types of image distortion.
● Horizontal image distortion
● Vertical image distortion
In this machine, the image distortion is adjusted by changing
the parallelism of mirrors (copy lamp unit, No. 2/3 mirror unit).
a. Horizontal image distortion adjustment
I. Summary
Parallelism of mirrors can be made by installing the copy
lamp unit and No. 2/3 mirror unit to the reference position.
However, it must be checked by making a copy, and must
be adjusted if necessary.

4) Manually turn the copy lamp unit/No.2/3 mirror unit drive
gear to bring No.2/3 mirror unit into contact with No.2/3
mirror unit positioning plate. When No.2/3 mirror unit
makes contact with No.2/3 mirror unit positioning plate in
the rear frame side simultaneously, the mechanical parallelism of No.2/3 mirror unit is proper.
If one side of No.2/3 mirror unit makes contact with
No.2/3 mirror unit positioning plate and the other side
does not, the parallelism is improper.
If the parallelism is improper, perform the procedure of
step 5).

1. Outline
Fig. 4 shows the block diagram of the ASIC.
The ASIC is composed of the following three blocks; the image process section, the print control section, and the I/F section.
The image process section processes the image data from the CCD PWB according to the operation mode, such as shading, AE
process, resolution conversion. and zooming.
The print control section outputs the image-processed data during copying to the LSU (Laser unit) in synchronization with writing
timing of the LSU.
The I/F section controls communication of interface (IEEE1284) with the host PC and controls DRAM of send/receive data buffer with
the host PC. (Only for models with the printer function)
The ASIC is controlled by the CPU which writes the operation mode and the set values necessary for each operation mode to the
ASIC control register.

(4) Heater lamp control circuit
(1) Outline
The heater lamp control circuit detects the heat roller surface
temperature and converts in into a voltage level, which is inputted to the CPU analog input pin.
The CPU converts the analog voltage into a digital signal level
and compares it with the set value of the simulation to turn
on/off the heater lamp according to the level, maintaining the
heat roller surface temperature at a constant level.

The lower the heat roller surface temperature is, the greater the
thermistor resistance is, and vise versa.
Therefore, the lower the heat roller surface temperature is, the
higher the thermistor terminal voltage is, and vise versa. The
thermistor terminal voltage is inputted to the CPU analog port.
The CPU controls ON/OFF of the heater lamp by this input voltage level.
[High temperature protect circuit in case of CPU hung up]
For IC119 3pin (reference voltage), +5V is divided by the resistor.
The thermistor terminal voltage is inputted to IC119 2pin.
When, therefore, the voltage at 2pin becomes lower than the
voltage at 3pin (when the heat roller temperature is about 220
C - 230˚C), IC119 1pin becomes HIGH, and the HL signal is
lowered to the GND level through IC114, stopping generation of
the heater lamp ON signal. (IC119 1pin is normal LOW.)
(6) Toner supply motor drive circuit
The IC101 is the motor control IC, which generates the pseudo

c. When the internal triac turns on, a pulse is applied to the
gate of the external triac. Consequently a current flow from

(7) Main motor drive circuit
The main motor is driven by the MM signal from ASIC. While
the main motor is rotating, the MM signal is driven to HIGH and
passed through IC114 to the control circuit in the main motor to
rotate the main motor. The MMLD signal is kept HIGH until the
main motor speed reaches the specified rpm, and passed
through the selector to the CPU.
[In case of the thermistor open]
The voltage at IC119 6pin over the voltage at 5pin to drive the
output THOPEN at 7pin to LOW. This is passed through the
selector to the CPU and the trouble code “H2” is displayed.

(2) Operation
The driver circuit forms a Darlington circuit with transistors.
Therefore a large drive current is obtained from a small current
(CPU output current). When the driver input voltage is HIGH
(+5V), the transistor turns ON to flow a current in the arrow
direction, operating the load. When the driver is ON, the driver
output terminal voltage is 0V.

(9) Power circuit block diagram
Block diagram
The power circuit is composed of the main section, the high voltage circuit, the FW signal section, and the heater lamp drive circuit.
The main section directly rectifies the AC power current and switch-converts with the DC/DC convertor, and rectifies again and
smoothes to form each DC power.
In the high voltage circuit section, the 24V output of the main section is switch-converted by the DC/DC convertor and rectified and
smoothed to form the high voltage output.
The FW signal section fullwave-rectifies the AC power to supply signal output at the timing of 0V.

Circuit descriptions
(1) Main section
a. Noise filter circuit
The noise filter circuit of the DC power is composed of
L and C as shown in the figure below. It reduces normal
mode noises and common mode noises which come
from and go to the AC line.
The normal mode noises are noises which are
generated in the AC line or the output line and are attenuated by C4B and C3. The common mode noises
are noise voltages generated between the AC line and
GND, and are attenuated by L1 and L2. The noise composition is bypassed to GND through C4 and C5.
b. Rectifying/smoothing circuit
The AC voltage of 50(60)Hz is full-wave rectified by the
rectifying diode DB1 and smoothed by the smoothing
capacitor C6.
TH1 is the power thermistor which limits a rush current
flowing to C6.
C. Invertor circuit
The DC voltage from the rectifying/smoothing circuit is
supplied to the secondary side of transformer T1 by
switching operation of FET Q1.
For switching, the RCC (Ringing Choke Convertor) system is employed.
FET Q1 is turned on by the starting resistors R20 and
R1 to generate a voltage between terminals 4 and 6 of
transformer T1 and between terminals 2 and 3 simultaneously. Then a voltage is applied to the gate of FET
Q1 to oscillate high frequency.
The actual line in the circuit diagram shows the current
to turn ON FET Q1, and the dotted line shows the current loop through which the energy accumulated in the
transformer is discharged when FET Q1 is turned OFF.
Voltage across Q1 drain and source (VDS)
Q1 drain current (ID)
d. Rectifying/smoothing circuit on the secondary side
The high frequency pulse generated by the invertor circuit is dropped by transformer T1, rectified by diodes
D51, D52, and D53, and smoothed by capacitors C51,

(2) FW signal
The AC input voltage is full-wave rectified by D5 and D6.
When the voltage is divided by resistors R18, R19, and
R27 and decreased below 2.5V, the shunt regulator IC7 is
turned OFF to turn OFF photo coupler PC3, and turn ON
transistor Q3. LOW level output of FW signal is provided.
e. Control circuit
The secondary side outputs (24V series, 5V series) are
detected by the output voltage detecting circuit, and the
detected signal is fed-back through photo coupler PC1
to the control transistor Q2 to change the ON period of
FET Q1 in the primary side invertor circuit, stabilizing
the output voltage.

Circuit description
The Two transistors connected in series to the transformer are switched on/off by the control signal (CL-) from the MCU. By this
switching operation, the signals are converted into switching pulses and a high frequency power is supplied to the CL (Xenon lamp)
by the transformer.
(11) CCD PWB operational description
The CCD PWB is provided with the CCD (Charge-Coupled Device), the differential amplifier which amplifies CCD signals, and the
AD convertor which converts the amplified signals into digital signals.
The DC power and the pulse supply pins necessary for operating the CCD image sensor are the power source (CD pin), GND (SS
pin), shift pulse (SH pin), transfer pulse (φ1 pin), (φ2 pin), reset pulse (/RS pin), clamp pulse (/CP pin), and sampling (/SP pin).
Photo data are stored in the light receiving element at the center of the CCD by the SH signal. Even number pixel data are sent to
one of the two shift registers which are positioned at both ends of the light receiving element, and odd number pixel data are sent
to the other shift register. The time interval between inputting two SH signals is called the photo accumulation time.
The signals are transfered to the register, then to the shift register sequentially by transfer pulses φ1 and φ2 and to the floating
capacitor section where electric signals are voltage-converted. Electric charges from the even number pixel shift register and the odd
number pixel shift register are flowed to the floating capacitor section alternatively.

The /RS signal is the reset signal of the CCD output signal. The CCD output is expressed as electric charges equivalently accumulated in the capacitor. Therefore, to take the CCD output data one pixel by one pixel, one output data must be cleared after it is outputted. The /RS signal is used for that operation.

The /SP pulse signal is the peak hold signal of the signal voltage.
The output signal from the CCD is amplified by about 4.7 times greater in the differential amplifier circuit in the CCD PWB.
Differential amplification is made for the signal output (OS) and the compensation output (DOS).

The amplified CCD signal output is sent to the clamp circuit. In the clamp circuit, the black level is clamped to 2V at the BCLK signal
timing by the analog switch. The clamped voltage is maintained for one line by the coupling capacitor. The clamped analog signal
is impedance-converted and inputted to the AD
convertor.
The analog signal inputted to the AD convertor is converted into 8bit digital data and passed to the PCU PWB.
The machine employs the TCD1501C as the image sensor. The TCD1501C is the reduction type high sensitivity CCD linear sensor
of one-output system. 5000 pixels of 7um x 7um are arranged in line to allow scanning of A3 document at 400dpi (16 lines/mm).
