d) Cut sheet feeding when skew detection is off
When skew detection is off, media width detection which is performed at the trailing edge of the media is performed simply to determine the position for
the next media leading edge detection and the actual media width used for printing is detected at the trailing edge of the media after media leading edge
detection.
Cut sheets that are loaded on the platen are transported by the feed rollers.
When cut sheets are loaded with the cut sheet option selected, the upper cover is closed by returning the media release lever, and then the sheet type is set,
the feed motor turns forward and the media sensor detects the trailing edge of the cut sheets loaded on the platen.
After calibrating the registration sensor in this state, media leading edge detection and media width detection are performed and then the cut sheet is stopped
at the print standby position.
The cut sheets are then fed by a length equivalent to the margin of the leading edge, and printing is started. Feeding of the cut sheets during printing is
performed by controlling the rotation of the feed rollers according to the printing mode.

2) Feed the media backward and detect the media trailing edge with the media sensor

1) Move the registration sensor over the media.

2) Determine the sensor output and check the sensor input value over the media checked.
3) Move the registration sensor over the platen.
4) Check the sensor input value over the platen.
This is performed each time the media is loaded since the sensor input value varies depending
on the media type.
1) Detect the media left edge (temporarily stop forward movement of the carriage when
detected).
2) Tentatively detect the media right edge (stop forward movement of the carriage when
detected).
3) Detect the media right edge (temporarily stop return movement of the carriage when
detected).
