The CPU (IC8) on the scanner motor driver PCB sends drive pulses to the motor according to
the scanning mode and distance and the selected reproduction ratio communicated by the CPU
PCB to control the rotation and speed of the motor.
To rotate the motor at a high speed when moving the scanner forward and in reverse, the motor
drive power is switched from 8 V (forward) to 40 V (reverse). (However, the motor is driven at 40
V even when moving the scanner forward at a reproduction ratio of 90%.)
The HOLD-OFF signal is used to prevent the motor from overheating while it is at rest in
Related Error Code
The communication between the scanner motor driver PCB and the CPU PCB is disrupted.
B. Changing the Reproduction Ratio
The reproduction ratio in main scanning direction (drum axial direction) is changed by reading
every so many image signals for reduction or reading the same image signals so many times for
The reproduction ratio in sub scanning direction is changed by moving the mirror mount faster
for reduction and slower for enlargement.
