CHAPTER 2 2. Protective function The printer has three protection functions to prevent abnormal temperature rise of the fixing roller. • The CPU monitors the thermistor voltage. If the thermistor voltage becomes lower than about 1.0V (230°C), the CPU identifies the fixing unit failure, and interrupts power to the fixing unit and reports it to the video controller.
CHAPTER 2 4. Envelope position lever function This printer can adjust the nip width in two steps by changing the spring pressure of the lower fixing roller. If an envelope wrinkles after it is printed, set the envelope position lever to the enve- lope position.

CHAPTER 2 1. Outline In response to the instruction from the microprocessor (CPU) on the DC controller PCB, the high-voltage power supply applies a voltage to the primary charging roller, developing cylinder, transfer charging roller, static charge eliminator, and upper fixing roller. It applies a voltage of DC voltage and AC voltage to the primary charging roller and developing cylinder, applies a pos- itive or negative DC voltage to the transfer charging roller, and a negative DC voltage to the sta- tic charge eliminator and the upper fixing roller.

CHAPTER 2 delivery cover. +5VDC is divided into +5V which is normally supplied to the ICs on the DC controller PCB from the power supply and +5V for power-saving mode (P5VB1). Supply of +5V for the power- saving mode is stopped when the sleep command is received from the video controller. During standby mode and periods when printing is not possible (when /RDY signal is “H”), the +5V is supplied OFF and ON.
CHAPTER 2 E. Video Interface Control 1. Outline To connect the printer to an external device, such as a host computer, a video controller PCB (interface PCB) is needed. This section explains the kinds of interface signals exchanged between the printer and the video controller PCB, and gives information concerning the sequence of printer operation mak- ing use of interface signals.
CHAPTER 2 2. Operation When the power is switched ON, the printer enters WAIT mode. At the end of the WAIT mode, the DC controller sends the READY signal (/RDY) to the video controller to inform it that printer is ready to print. When the /RDY signal is “L”...

CHAPTER 2 IV. IMAGE FORMATION SYSTEM A. Outline The image formation system is the central hub of the printer, and consists of the photosensitive drum, developing unit and charging roller etc. When the PRINT signal (/PRNT) is sent from the video controller to the DC controller, the DC controller drives the main motor to rotate the photosensitive drum with the laser diode, devel- oping cylinder, primary charging roller, and transfer charging roller.

CHAPTER 2 B. Printing Process A major portion of the image formation system is contained with a cartridge as shown in Figure 2-4-2. Laser beam Cartridge Primary charging roller Blade Cleaning blade Developing cylinder Photosensitive drum Transfer charging roller Static charge eliminator Figure 2-4-2 This printer’s cartridge has a seamless photosensitive drum with a two-layer surface shown in Figure 2-4-3.
CHAPTER 2 1. Electrostatic latent image formation stage This stage follows two steps to produce an electrostatic latent image on the photosensitive drum. At the end of the stage, negative charges remain on the unexposed “dark” areas, where the laser beam struck (exposed) the drum surface. This image of negative charges on the drum is invisible to the eye, so it is referred to as an called an “electrostatic latent image.”...
CHAPTER 2 Step 2 Scanning exposure Laser beam Unexposed area Exposed area Figure 2-4-7 When the laser beam scans the drum surface, it causes the charge to be neutralized in the areas struck by the laser beam. These areas on the drum surface form the electrostatic latent image. 2.
CHAPTER 2 As shown in Figure 2-4-8, the developing unit consists of a developing cylinder and a rubber blade. The developing cylinder rotates around a fixed internal magnet. The single-component toner consists of magnetite and a resin binder, and is held to the cylin- der by magnetic attraction.
CHAPTER 2 Reference: If the image on the photosensitive drum is not completely transferred onto the paper due to jam- ming, etc., the toner may adhere to the transfer charging roller. The printer removes the toner from the transfer charging roller by switching the transfer voltage between positive and negative in the specified sequence.
CHAPTER 2 4. Fixing stage The toner image transferred onto the paper in the transfer stage is held only by electrostatic attraction and a slight physical adhesion, so even a light touch will smear the image. In the fixing stage, the toner image is fixed by heating the paper and applying pressure. This fuses the toner particles onto the paper to create a permanent image.
CHAPTER 2 5. Drum cleaning stage In the transfer stage, not all the toner is transferred to the paper. Some remains on the photo- sensitive drum. This residual toner is cleaned off in the drum cleaning stage so that the next print image will be clear and distinct.
CHAPTER 2 V. PICK-UP/FEED SYSTEM A. Outline Presence of paper on the multi-purpose tray is detected by the multi-purpose tray paper sensor (PS1301), and presence of paper in the upper and lower cassettes is detected by the cassette paper-out sensor (PS1207 or PS1208). If the cassette pick-up motor (SMT1) in the paper pick-up unit rotates for cassette feeding, pick-up roller, feed roller 1, and separation roller turn to feed a sheet of paper into the printer.
CHAPTER 2 B. Paper Pick-up 1. Pick-up operation This printer conducts paper pick-up operation by lifting the paper to the paper pick-up position with the lifter and lowering the rotating cassette pick-up roller to the paper level. Paper pick-up operation is conducted only when the multi-input tray driver receives the pick- up command from the option controller.

CHAPTER 2 a. Cassette detection/cassette paper size detection/cassette paper level detection The upper and lower cassettes detection is executed by the upper cassette sensor (PS1202) and the lower cassette sensor (PS1201). The paper detection in the upper and lower cassettes is exe- cuted by the upper cassette paper out sensor (PS1208) and the lower cassette paper out sensor (PS1207).

CHAPTER 2 b. Lift-up operation The lift-up operation is executed by the multi-input tray drive motor when a cassette is installed or the pick-up roller shaft is set lower than certain level due to the paper reduce. The two cases for the lift-up operation are as follows. Paper lifting plate Pick-up roller Cassette pick-up cam...
CHAPTER 2 1) Cassette is installed When a cassette is installed, the multi-input tray drive motor rotates, and the cassette paper pick-up solenoid (SL3) is turned ON. Then, the shaft drive arm is driven by the cassette paper pick-up cam rotation through the gear. Cassette pick-up cam Shaft drive arm Main motor drive...
CHAPTER 2 As the shaft drive arm goes down, the pick-up roller shaft goes down. Then, the lift-up release arm is pushed, and the lift-up cam is unfixed. At the same time, the shaft drive arm is fixed to the pick-up roller shaft fixing arm, and the pick-up roller shaft is stopped in the designated position.
CHAPTER 2 The pick-up roller shaft is lifted up when the paper on the paper lifting plate touches the pick-up roller. Then, the fixing arm is released, and the lift-up release arm lifts up the pick- up roller shaft to the waiting position by force of the spring. At the same time, the lift-up cam is fixed by driving the pick-up roller shaft fixing arm and the lift-up release arm.
CHAPTER 2 2) Paper level is lower than certain level As the paper level lowers, the moving distance of the pick-up roller increases. When the moving distance reaches the specified value, the pick-up roller shaft pushes the lift up release arm, and the lift up cam is unfixed. •...
CHAPTER 2 When the lift-up cam is unfixed, the lift-up arm lifts up the lifter gear one tooth by the rota- tion of the lift-up cam. The paper lifting plate is lifted up by repeating the operation. (See Figure 2-5-10) When the paper on the paper lifting plate touches the pick-up roller, the pick-up roller shaft is lifted up.
CHAPTER 2 c. Multi-feed prevention mechanism When feeding from the cassette, the printer uses the separation roller to prevent multi-feeding. Normally, the separation roller is imparted with a rotational force opposite to that of the feed roller. However, since the separation roller is equipped with a torque limiter, it rotates with feed roller 1 by transmission of its rotational force via the transported paper.
CHAPTER 2 2. Manual feed (multi-purpose tray) The presence of paper on the multi-purpose tray is detected by the multi-purpose tray paper sensor (PS1301). When the DC controller receives the /PRNT signal from the video controller, the lifting plate solenoid (SL2) turns ON, the lifting plate is unlocked (the lifting plate rises), and the paper touches the pick-up roller.
CHAPTER 2 C. Fixing and Delivery Unit The upper and lower rollers of the fixing unit, and the face-up and face-down delivery rollers are driven by the main motor (MT1). The paper separated from the photosensitive drum is fed into the fixing unit, and sent from the fixing unit by the fixing roller and fixing unit delivery roller.
CHAPTER 2 The printer switches between face-up and face-down tray delivery with the face-up deflector. When the FACE-UP SOLENOID DRIVE signal (/FUSLD) becomes “L”, the face-up solenoid (SL3) moves the face-up deflector to the face-up tray and the paper is delivered through the face-up tray.
CHAPTER 2 D. Paper Jam Detection The following paper sensors are provided to detect whether paper is present and whether the paper is fed normally. • Registration paper sensor (PS1) • Pick-up unit paper sensor (PS2) • Fixing unit delivery sensor (PS1403) •...
CHAPTER 2 7. Residual paper jam a. The CPU assesses a residual paper jam if the fixing unit delivery sensor (PS1403) detects the paper after the power-ON. b. The CPU assesses a residual paper jam if it does not receive an automatic delivery command within 3 minutes after notifying the video controller of the presence of paper which can be automatically delivered out of the printer.
CHAPTER 2 VI. OVERALL CONTROL SYSTEM A. Video Controller PCB 1. Outline The video controller PCB receives print data consisting of code or image data sent from the exter- nal device (host computer, etc.) through the interface cable. The print data including the contents specified by the control panel is analyzed, processed and converted into the dot data within this PCB.
