Physical and Functional Description
This chapter provides a physical and functional description of the DEClaser
1100 series printer.
1.1 Description of the DEClaser 1100 Series Printers
The DEClaser 1100 series printers are compact, low-cost, desktop printers
capable of printing high-quality text or graphics at speeds up to 4 pages
per minute on a variety of typical media, including paper, envelopes, and
transparencies. Appendix B contains printer and media specifications.
Media can be fed into the printer from the standard input tray or from an
optional feeder cassette that attaches to the bottom of the printer. The printer
and cassette are customer installable.
A unique feature of this printer is rollers used in place of ozone-producing
charge wires. The operation of the control panel is similar to the DEClaser
2000 series printers.

The main central processing unit (M–CPU) is a 32-bit microprocessor that
controls all activity on the video control board.
The subcentral processing unit (S–CPU) is a 16-bit microprocessor that
operates as a slave to the M–CPU. The S–CPU does the following:
•
Controls the host system and video control board communication through
the logic elements on the interface board.
•
Reads and operates the keys, display, and all indicators on the control
panel.
•
Controls read/write access to the electrically erasable programmable
read-only memory (EEPROM). The EEPROM is referred to as NVRAM by
the control panel display (nonvolatile random-access memory).
•
Operates the DC control board.
Gate array 1 (GA1) controls the direct memory access (DMA) process to the
DRAM. The DRAM is accessed by the DC control board and by devices on the
video control boards.
Gate array 2 (GA2) controls the transfer timing of the dot pattern data to the
DC control board.

message on the display and the fixing current off until the printer power has
been off for longer than 3 minutes.
The 50 SERVICE message is displayed if the fixing temperature:
•
Fails to reach 50°C (122°F) within 40 seconds after power on.
•
Fails to reach 100°C (212°F) within 40 seconds after reaching 50°C.
•
Fails to reach 120°C (248°F) within 30 seconds after reaching 100°C.

1.11 HVPSA Density Circuits
The HVPSA and density adjustment assemblies are replaced as FRUs. There
are no internal field adjustments.
1.11.1 Density Adjustment
The density adjustment lets the user choose lighter or darker printing. The
default shown in Figure 1–14 is the recommended normal position for the
sliding adjuster.
Figure 1–14 Density Adjustment
Default
MLO-006063P
As shown in Figure 1–15, VR701 is the density adjustment potentiometer. As
VR701 is adjusted from dark to light, the VR signal varies from approximately
0–8 Vdc. VR varies the primary and development dc bias voltages which varies
the quantity of toner on the drum and on the sheet.
•
The darkest setting makes printed text dark, reduces background staining,
and uses up the toner supply at a faster rate.
•
The lightest setting makes the text lighter and increases background
staining. The increased staining is imperceptible on flat cut sheets, but is
more noticeable when printing envelopes. See Section 8.16 for additional
information.

The HVPSA is operated by the DC control board. The primary and
development high-voltage power supplies connect to the EP-L cartridge by
flat spring contacts. The transfer supply connects to the transfer roller in the
front door assembly by a coil spring contact that you can see when the front
door is open. The HV door switch shorts the supply to ground when the front
door is opened.
The flat and coil springs are chrome plated and require no maintenance. Use
a soft brush to clean away dust or paper chips, but avoid using commercially
available liquid or aerosol contact cleaners. Do not attempt to scrape clean,
bend back, or repair damaged contacts.

DEClaser 1100 Printer Control Panel
This chapter describes the operational modes, keys, and indicators of the
DEClaser 1100 printer.
2.1 Control Panel Modes
The DEClaser 1100 printer runs in either the online Ready or offline Ready
mode of operation. The online indicator shows the online or offline status. The
text 00 READY is displayed when the printer is ready to receive commands.
The online Ready mode means that the printer is ready to receive commands,
text, or font files from the host system. Most of the keypad keys are disabled
when the printer is online. If you press a disabled key, the control panel beeper
sounds and the key is ignored.
Note: The online Ready display text 00 READY can be replaced or modified
by a firmware emulation cartridge, for example, the PostScript option cartridge
that installs in font cartridge slot A.
The offline Ready mode means that the printer is ready to receive commands
from the control panel. You can activate any of the keypad functions shown in
Figure 2–2 when the printer is in the offline Ready mode.

2.10.1 macro
The DEClaser 1100 printer (PPL3) macro feature allows you to select an
environment for local compatibility. It assigns the proper user preference
character set, enables/disables the initialization message, and specifies
the return response (device identification) when a Device Attributes (DA)
request is received. The macro feature is slightly different from other menu
features because three parameters (user preference character set, initialization
message, and device ID) are added together to determine the macro value. The
user preference, initialization message, and device ID values cannot be selected
independently; they must be added together to form the macro value. See
Section A.2 for more macro information.
After changing the macro number, you must press

2.10.2 paint
The following values are displayed for the paint feature of the DEClaser 1100
printer (PPL3) INITIAL menu:
•
Partial
•
Full
•
Dual
Which values are displayed depends on the amount of available memory:
•
If the minimum amount of memory is installed (512 KB), you can only
select the Partial value; Full and Dual are not displayed.
•
If the 1-MB optional memory is installed, you can select Partial or Full;
Dual is not displayed.
•
If the 2-MB optional memory is installed, you can select Partial, Full, or
Dual.
The paint selection allocates the page area of the available bitmapped memory.
The bitmap stores the page or text and also caches downline loaded fonts.
•
The Partial value is optimal for printing text and simple graphics that do
not print on the entire sheet.
•
The Full value bitmaps one full page and is necessary for complex graphics.
A slight loss of speed may be noticed when printing text.
•
The Dual value bitmaps two complete, full pages. This value enables faster
printing of complex graphics, especially if printing on legal size paper.

The main menu choices for the DEClaser 1152 printer are as follows:
INTERFACE
PS PCL SETUP
PAPER HANDLING
MISCELLANEOUS
Table 3–3, Table 3–8, Table 3–10, and Table 3–11 show the features and values
for these main menu choices.
3.3.1 Interface Selection
This feature selects the interface(s) used to communicate with the host
computer(s).
Multiple simultaneous active interfaces are a feature of PostScript level 2. For
example, the Centronics interface and a serial interface can be active at the
same time.
If a serial line is connected and active when the interpreter switches to PCL4,
the following occurs:
•
The protocol switches from ‘‘normal’’ to ‘‘raw’’.
•
The flow control changes to ‘‘receive xon/xoff’’ if the previous mode was
xon/xoff.
If a serial line is connected and active when the interpreter switches to
PostScript, the following occurs:
•
The protocol switches from ‘‘raw’’ to ‘‘normal’’.
•
The flow control changes to ‘‘xon/xoff’’ if the previous mode was receive
xon/xoff.
3.3.2 INTERFACE Menu
The DEClaser 1152 printer supports parallel, serial, and LocalTalk interface
connections. The interfaces of the printer must match the interfaces used by
the host computers.
In Table 3–3, default values are shown in uppercase in the ‘‘Values’’ column.

A part of the data format the printer uses to
communicate with the host computer. The
printer looks for the type of parity checking
bit in each character. A system can use
an odd, even, space, mark, or no parity
checking, or may elect to use no checking.
The selected settings will only be enforced if
CHECKPARITY is set to YES.
PARITY: NO
No parity bit is sent. This setting is valid
only with 8 data bits.
PARITY: odd
Each character received is checked for odd
parity; each character transmitted will have
an odd number of bits (odd parity). This
setting is valid only with the following
combinations: 7 data bits, 1 or 2 stop bits
and 8 data bits, 1 stop bit.
PARITY: even
Each character received is checked for even
parity; each character transmitted will have
an even number of bits (even parity). This
setting is valid only with the following
combinations: 7 data bits, 1 or 2 stop bits
and 8 data bits, 1 stop bit.

Description
SER: FLOW CONTROL
FLOW: XON/XOFF
Uses software to control the flow of data
to the input buffer of the printer. It
is sometimes referred to as software
handshaking protocol, a method the printer
and the host computer use to exchange xon
/xoff signals. These signals prevent the input
buffer from overflowing with data. If the
input buffer becomes full and handshaking is
not enabled, the overflowing data will be lost.
Xon/xoff must be enabled in systems that use
this software handshaking protocol to prevent
the loss of data.
FLOW: dtr
Uses hardware to regulate the flow of data to
the input buffer of the printer. The printer
transmits a signal to the DTR line of the
serial port when it is ready to receive data.
This is sometimes referred to as the hardware
handshaking protocol.
FLOW: etx/ack
This feature is another type of handshaking
protocol that is used on some systems to
prevent data overflow. It uses software to
regulate the flow of data to the input buffer
by exchanging signals with the host computer.
Note: The end of text/acknowledge feature
is not supported on Digital systems. Use xon
/xoff or DTR if you have a Digital system.
SER: DATA BITS
The number of data bits the printer expects
to see in each character it receives.
DATA BITS: EIGHT
The printer is set to receive and transmit
characters composed of eight bits. This
setting is valid with 1 or 2 stop bits and no
parity.
DATA BITS: seven
The printer is set to receive and transmit
characters composed of seven bits. This
setting is valid with 1 or 2 stop bits and even
or odd parity.
SER: STOP BITS
Specifies the number of stop bits. Some
systems use one stop bit while other systems
require two.

7.2 Detecting and Clearing Jams
Jams are detected by the paper pickup (PS13) and fixing unit exit (PS12)
sensors. The DC control board examines the sensors as the sheet proceeds
through the paper path. If the sheet fails to arrive under a sensor or remains
under the sensor too long, the DC control board stops the main motor, shuts
down the fixing heater, and sends the error to the video control board. The 13
PAPER JAM message is then displayed by the video control board.
FIP Note: Section 1.3.1 and Section 1.3.2 describe the paper path and
components of the paper path. Figure 1–7 shows where PS12 and PS13 can be
found.

7.2 Detecting and Clearing Jams
Press Error Skip or open and close the front or fixing door to clear a 13 PAPER
JAM message. The following rounding cycle happens as the jams detection
circuits clear:
•
The main motor runs.
•
Any paper caught in the paper path is ejected.
•
If the pickup rollers are not parked at the home position, they will rotate
and feed the top sheet of paper.
7.3 Power-Up Jams
An electrical malfunction of the DC control board, sensors, or wiring can
produce a power-up or phantom alarm. The term phantom describes a jam
alarm that occurs when there is no paper in the paper path. Phantom jams
can occur intermittently or can be predictable and can occur during operation
or when the printer is idle. Phantom jams cannot be directly connected or
linked to a malfunctioning roller or paper path guide.
Perform the following steps to fix a power-up or phantom jam alarm:
1. Examine the linkage arms that operate the paper pickup (PS13) and exit
sensors (PS12). Look for anything that may interfere with the operation
of the sensor linkages, such as shreds of paper or dirt. Manually toggle
the linkages to see if they move freely and fall to the home position in the
paper path. Fix or replace any damaged component.
2. Inspect the plug that connects PS12 and PS13 to the wiring harness. Look
for damage, misconnection, or misseating.
3. Inspect the 3-pin J208 plug that connects to the DC control board. Look for
misconnection or bent pins.
4. Swap the following components:
•
DC control board
•
Exit sensor PS12
•
Density adjustment board
•
Feed roller assembly which contains the PS13 paper pickup sensor

8.2 Light Printing
8.2 Light Printing
The text and dark areas of the printed image are too light. Light
printing or low density can be caused by the toner or paper supply,
or by a malfunction of the high-voltage supplies or of the transfer
circuits. Perform the following steps and checks:
•
The normal position for the density adjuster is the second
detent position from the left, as shown in Figure 1–14.
•
Try new paper from a different source. Use a recommended
paper.
•
The supply of toner in the EP-L cartridge might be caked
or exhausted. Agitate and lightly rap the EP-L cartridge to
break up compacted or caked toner. Caking happens when the
toner gets damp, or if it has been sitting too long. Damp toner
can dry out if the cartridge is left in a dry room for a day or
so.
•
Are the high-voltage connectors of the HVPSA and EP-L
cartridge dirty or damaged?
•
Inspect the 10-pin J206 plug that connects to the DC control
board.

The registration is factory set and should require no adjustment
in the field. Use the following procedure to verify correct
registration:
1. Use the following procedure to measure the leading edge
registration:
a. Print one sheet of the Engine Test print, as shown in
Section 5.4.
b. Use a metric ruler to measure the distance between the
leading edge of the paper and the start of the vertical
bars.
c.
The image is positioned correctly if the distance measured
above is 3.6 mm. Adjusting VR201 can shift the image
±2.40 mm.
If the alignment is slightly off and all components of the
printer are in good shape, try adjusting VR201 on the DC
control board to correct the error.

10.12 Handling the Optical Components
If the optical components of the printer are mishandled, image defects or beam
detection errors can result. Beam detection errors are immediately detectable,
but image defects may go unnoticed and show up later as a problem. Replace
any component that you suspect is damaged.
The following types of damage can occur to the optical components:
•
Mechanical damage is caused by dropping or other forms of rough handling
or by misadjustment of the mirrors or lenses in the optical cavity.
•
Contamination damage of the mirrors or lenses is caused by the biological
oils and acids found in fingerprints. Some mirrored surfaces are affected
more than others. The oils cause a decrease in beam intensity. The acids
can etch, stain, and over time deteriorate the surface of a mirror or lens.
•
Electrical damage is caused when static electricity discharges through
sensitive electronic components. Always use the antistatic equipment.
Warning: Use of controls or adjustment procedures other than those specified
in this manual may result in hazardous laser light exposure to yourself or to
other persons in the room. The safety information presented in Safety Warnings
only applies while the scanner cover is fully installed.
Before servicing the optical components, you must have attended the training
specified in Section D.1.
Table 10–1 gives a short description of each part. Figure 10–1 shows the
locations of various components within the optical cavity.

Component
Description
Scan lens
The scan lens adjusts the scan to assure
correct linearity of the beam on the surface of
the drum.
Scanning assembly
The high-speed mirror causes the laser light
to scan through the scan lens.
Laser assembly
Generates an invisible beam of infrared light
and focuses the light onto the surface of the
scanning mirror.
Beam start mirror
The beam is reflected into the beam detect
lens by the beam start mirror. Slight
adjustment of this assembly causes a large
shift of the side-to-side registration, or
causes beam detect errors. For additional
information about beam detect errors, see the
SERVICE 51 entry in Table 6–5.
Warning: Do not remove or adjust the beam
start mirror while in the field.
Beam detect
lens and fiber
optic connector
The lens focuses the beam into the fiber optic
cable. The detector on the DC control board
converts the light into the BD signal. The BD
signal causes the printer to feed paper and
send data.

A.2 Macro Numbers
The macro feature is a selection of the INITIAL menu. Table 2–3 and
Section 2.10 provide a brief description of the macro feature. Press Reset to
invoke the macro number.
The macro feature allows you to select an environment for local compatibility.
It assigns the proper user preference character set, enables/disables the
initialization message, and specifies the return response (device identification)
when a Device Attributes (DA) request is received. The macro feature is
slightly different from other menu features because three parameters (user
preference character set, initialization message, and device ID) are added
together to determine the macro value. The user preference, initialization
message, and device ID values cannot be selected independently; they must be
added together to form the macro value.
The macro feature allows you to choose the user preference character set
appropriate for your application or system. Consult the Digital ANSICompliant Printing Protocol Level 3 Programming Reference Manual for more
information about the user preference sets. Table A–2 lists the user preference
character sets and their values.

The DEClaser 1100 printer can identify itself as a Digital ANSI-compliant level
3 (DEC PPL3) printer, and therefore can be recognized as such by symbiont
and terminal drivers that conform to the Digital ANSI-compliant architecture.
This identification is also compatible with level 2 devices, since all level 2
sequences are also supported. You can also select an LN03 identification for
applications that require the printer to identify itself as an LN03 printer.
For example, the DECmate word processing system requires an LN03 device
identification. The device identification values are shown in Table A–4.

DEClaser 1100 Series Printers
Specifications
This appendix gives general specifications for the media and operation of the
DEClaser 1100 series printers.
B.1 Print Media
The types of print media described in this section are paper, labels,
transparencies, and envelopes. For additional information about print
media, consult the Digital Laser Printers Guide to Paper and Other Media,
available from DECdirect.
B.1.1 Paper Handling and Storage
Even if the customer is using paper that meets all specifications, improper
handling and storage can alter paper quality and printer performance. Paper
jams, misfeeding, and image defects are directly traceable to the mishandling
and improper storage of paper.
Paper Handling
Be aware of the following considerations when handling paper:
•
Load the cassette to its proper capacity rather than adding small amounts
at a time.
•
When you unwrap a new package of paper, discard the top and bottom
sheets, as they tend to absorb more humidity from the surrounding
environment.
•
Load the paper with the top side up in the cassette. On most paper
packages, an arrow indicates the top side of the paper.
DEClaser 1100 Series Printers Specifications B–1
B.1 Print Media
Paper Storage
Be aware of the following considerations when storing paper:
•
Do not unwrap paper until you are ready to load the cassette. The
wrapping protects the paper against humidity.
•
Do not store paper directly on the floor because floors are generally very
damp.
•
Lay paper on a flat surface to prevent in-ream paper curl.
B.1.2 Available Standard Size Cassettes
Table B–1 lists cassettes that are available for use in the DEClaser 1100 series
printers.

B–2 DEClaser 1100 Series Printers Specifications
B.1 Print Media
Special Considerations When Printing on Paper
Use caution when you print on the following types of papers:
•
The ink from some printed papers, such as those with a company
letterhead, can cause smearing and, in some extreme cases, can damage
the fixing unit heat roller.
•
Some colored papers use an applied coating of ink or other coloring agent.
The coating can come off and contaminate the fixing unit rollers.
•
Do not use thermal papers.
•
Do not use carbon papers.
Caution: Print test samples of the paper before you use it for the first time.
This is particularly important when using chemically treated or coated
paper, such as printed forms or colored paper. The inks and pigments used
on these papers must also be able to withstand the high heat and pressure
of the fixing unit. Consider also the heat limitations of transparencies and
of the glues used on envelopes and labels.
B.1.3 Envelopes
Envelopes must meet the same specifications as the paper listed in Table B–2.
Do not use the following types of envelopes with the printer:
•
Envelopes with sealing flaps that are open
•
Envelopes with sealing flaps at the leading or trailing edges
•
Envelopes with three or more layers of paper at the leading and trailing
edges
•
Envelopes that have windows
•
Envelopes that have clasps, snaps, or strings
Special Considerations When Printing on Envelopes
Observe the following considerations when printing on envelopes:
•
Use the front output (faceup) tray.
•
Do not load more than five envelopes in the paper tray.
•
Envelopes can be printed only on the front side.
•
Printing in the 15 mm (3/5 in) border around the envelope causes print
quality problems with some envelopes.

Special Considerations When Printing Transparencies
Please be aware of the following considerations when printing on transparencies:
•
Transparencies can be fed from the cassette but tray feeding is
recommended.
•
Prevent curling by using the faceup front stack.
•
Prevent sticking by removing each hot transparency as it is ejected into the
stack.
•
Do not use transparencies that have a paper backing.
B–4 DEClaser 1100 Series Printers Specifications
B.2 Labels
B.2 Labels
A label consists of a face sheet, an adhesive sheet, and a carrier sheet. The
face sheet (or printing surface) is usually composed of photocopying paper and
should meet the same specifications for paper, as described in Table B–1. The
carrier sheet and adhesive used for the labels must also be able to meet the
heat tolerance specification of 150°C (302°F) for at least 0.1 second.
Do not expose the adhesive on the labels. Doing so could cause damage to the
printer. An easy way to test for adhesive that may be exposed is to press a
plain piece of paper on top of the sheet of labels. If the paper does not stick to
the labels, they are acceptable to use.
Special Considerations When Printing on Labels
Observe the following considerations when printing on labels:
•
Feed labels from the paper tray.
•
Be sure that the carrier sheet is not exposed.
•
Be sure that no adhesive is exposed.
•
Use the front faceup stacking tray.

Total Call Concept
C.1 Performing Total Call Concept
The total call concept (TCC) procedure is performed whenever a service
engineer is called to repair or service a printer. Always repair the printer first
and then perform the TCC procedure.
C.2 Maintenance Log
You must keep an accurate maintenance history to ensure the long life and
reliability of the DEClaser 1100 printers. When you first arrive at the site,
review the maintenance log for information that can assist you to troubleshoot
and repair the malfunctioning printer. After you fix the problem, record your
activity in the maintenance log for the benefit of the next service person.
The part number of the DEClaser 1100 Printer Maintenance Log pad is
EN–02022–12.
A special adhesive-backed pouch is available for storing the maintenance log at
the customer’s site. The order number for the pouch is 36–18307–04. Attach
the pouch to the side cover or underneath the printer.
C.3 Preventive Maintenance Procedure
The DEClaser 1100 and 1150 printers do not have a page counter, so time in
service is used to estimate the preventive maintenance (PM) interval.
The DEClaser 1152 printer has a page counter that you can use to estimate the
PM interval. To find the page count, print a test print. The number of printed
pages is listed on the test print.

–
29–29020–01, Fixing unit assembly, 240 Vac
–
29–28994–01, Transfer charging roller
C.4 TCC Procedure
When you perform the TCC procedure you enhance the reliability of the printer
and reduce the number of service calls that are required to support the printer.
A slight increase in MTTR results in a large increase in MTTF. The customer
and you win in the end.
Use the historical information from the maintenance log to analyze the
reliability of the printer and of a component within the printer. If you are
uncertain that a component is worn, broken, or contaminated but suspect
that it is, replace it anyway. This preventive action will reduce the number of
service calls over the lifetime of the printer.
Damaged, worn, or broken printer components cause intermittent problems
and accelerate the aging of mechanical components. Pinched or frayed wires
can randomly short circuit. Paper dust, dirt, and toner on rollers, bearings,
and gears cause premature failures. Replace any rollers that have flat spots,
surface glazing or cracking, or dust and toner contamination.
C.4.1 Cleaning and Inspection
Clean and vacuum toner, paper dust, and dirt from the following areas of the
DEClaser 1100 printer:
Caution: Always use the special vacuum cleaner in Section D.2 for cleaning
up toner. The toner powder can pass through the bag or filter of a conventional
vacuum cleaner and cause damage.
•
Inside and outside of the cassette and optional feeder
•
Feed roller assembly
•
Remove and clean the EP-L cartridge
•
Paper path guides
•
Fixing unit entrance and exit areas
•
Facedown delivery rollers
C–2 Total Call Concept
C.4 TCC Procedure
•
Facedown and faceup stacking tray
•
Walls and floor of the empty EP-L cavity.
•
