    : e-STUDIO350/450 only : AC power supply line : Signal line Fig. 2-402 (b) Function of each board CCD board: This is the board to convert the reflected light by the original to electrical signals. It consists of the CCD, and its peripheral circuitry. The CCD converts the reflected light by the original to analog signal and outputs it to the SLG board. SLG board: This is the board to mainly control the scanning function (scanner unit) and consists of the Scanner-CPU, ASIC, memory (Flash ROM and SRAM), A/D converter, driver for motor drive, etc. When scanning the original, the exposure lamp and scan motor are driven by the command from the Scanner-CPU. The analog signal output from the CCD board is then converted to digital signal by the A/D converter. Image processing is performed by ASIC. INV board: This is the board on which the lighting control circuit of the exposure lamp is mounted. The expo- sure lamp lights by the command from the Scanner-CPU. DSP board: This is the board to mainly control the control panel. The panel processing CPU detecting the in- put from each button and touch panel, and the lighting control circuit for the backlight of the LCD are mounted. And it relays the control signal of the control panel from the SYS board to the LCD and KEY board. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 2 - 24 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved OUTLINE OF THE MACHINE 05/11...
  • Page 45 KEY board: This is the board on which each button switch and each LED on the control panel are mounted. LDR board: This is the board on which the laser diode and the ASIC are mounted. The laser is emitted based on the output image data signal from the ASIC on the LGC board. SNS board: This is the board on which the light sensor for detecting the radiating position of the laser is mounted. It outputs the H-sync signal to ASIC on the LGC board. LRL board: This is the board to relay each signal transmitted between the LGC board and laser unit (LDR and SNS boards). SFB board: This is the board on which the circuit pattern is printed. It detects the position of the slide guide of the bypass unit. ADU board: This is the board to relay each signal between the ASIC on the LGC board and the electric parts (motor, sensor, clutch) in the ADU. IH board: This is the board to generate the electric power for driving the IH coil of the fuser unit from the AC electric power input via the switching power supply. And then it is provided. SYS board: This is the main board taking a leading part in all systems. It consists of the System-CPU, ASIC, memory (DIMM, SDRAM, Flash ROM, SRAM, NVRAM), RTC (Real Time Clock IC), etc. The System-CPU controls each ASIC to perform the control of the image processing, image memory (page memory, main memory, HDD), external interface (RS-232C, IEEE-1284, USB, PCI), NIC and FAX. Based on the input data from the control panel, the System-CPU communicates with the Scanner-CPU on the SLG board and Engine-CPU on the LGC board, and then issues an operation command to the scanner and printer engine section. LGC board: This is the board to mainly control the printing function (printer engine). It consists of the Engine- CPU, ASIC, memory (Flash ROM, SRAM, NVRAM), driver for motor drive, etc. The Engine-CPU controls each ASIC to drive I/O (for the electrical parts) of each section in the system. It leads to the operation of the laser unit, developer unit, drum, drawers, bypass unit, ADU, etc. Thus print- ing is performed. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 2 - 25 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 OUTLINE OF THE MACHINE...
  • Page 46 NIC board (e-STUDIO350/450 only): This is the interface board to connect this equipment to the LAN environment (10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX) to communicate with PCs, etc. FIL board: This is the board to cut off the noise of AC power from outside, and supply the driving AC power to the damp heater for condensation prevention of each section (scanner and drum). FUS board: This is the board to provide the AC electric power for driving to the damp heater for preventing of the condensation of each section (scanner and drum). HVT: This is the board to generate the DC high voltage from +24V to provide the bias to the section of the main charger, developer, transfer, and separation. PS-ACC: This is the unit to generate each DC voltage, which is used in the equipment, from external AC electric power input. And then it is provided to each electrical part. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 2 - 26 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved OUTLINE OF THE MACHINE 05/11...

    SCANNER 6.1 Function In the scanning section of this equipment, the surface of an original is irradiated with a direct light and the reflected light is led through mirrors, a lens and a slit to CCD where optical-to-electrical conversion is performed, converting the optical image data into an electrical (analog) signal. This analog signal is changed to a digital signal, which then undertakes various corrective processes necessary for image formation. After that, arithmetic operation is performed on the digital signal, which is then transmitted to the data writing section.

(2) CCD circuit This circuit converts the reflected light amount from the original surface and the shading correc- tion plate to electrical signals. The exposure amount is controlled in two ways: (a) White reference formation - reads the reflected light amount from the white shading correction plate (b) Black reference formation - reads the light amount at the regulation position with the expo- sure lamp lights OFF (3) Image processing circuit A series of image processes such as a gamma correction and a shading correction are applied on the output signal from the CCD.

    Detals of lght recevng Transfer secton Shft regster Transfer clock Fig. 6-501 6.5.2 Shading correction Signal voltages read by the CCD have the following characteristics: (1) Light source has a variation in its light distribution. (2) Since the light beam reflected from the original is converged using a lens, the light path is the shortest at the center of the CCD and the longest at ends. This causes difference in the amount of light reaching the CCD (i.e. the light amount is maximum at the CCD center, gradu- ally decreases toward ends). (3) Each of the 7,400 elements varies in opto-electronic conversion efficiency. These variation need to be corrected and this correction is referred to as shading correction. Shading correction is performed by applying normalization process using the following formula on the black and white data obtained in advance to correct lighting variance and element variation of the image data.

    8.2 Structure (1) Laser emission Unit This unit consists of the laser diode, finite focus lens, aperture and cylinder lens. a. Laser diode This laser diode features low droop, small laser variation and low threshold current. Aperture determines the shape of the laser beam at laser emission position of the primary scanning and secondary scanning. Laser diode radiates the laser beam responding to the laser emission control (ON/OFF) signal from the laser driving PC board. Laser beam which passed through the finite focus lens is focused on the drum surface. b. CAUTION The beam of the semiconductor laser is very weak (about 5 mW), but focused parallel rays creates great energy which is hazardous. Some material of the components of the laser optical unit are metal. Since the unit is in a sealed container, there is no danger of laser leakage during normal operation. Note: Laser beam is not visible. Pay the closest attention when handling the laser unit components or performing operations such as adjustment of the laser beam, and this kind of operations are very dangerous and must be performed only by specially trained staff. The warning label shown below is attached on the inner housing at the front side of the equipment. Fig. 8-201 [CAUTION] • Do not approach tools near the path of the laser beam. • Take off your watches, rings, bracelets, etc. before handling the unit. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 8 - 3 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 LASER OPTICAL UNIT...

    Constant optcal output Montor eff- cency regula- Montor output ton crcut Fig. 8-302 Fig. 8-302 shows a block diagram of the semiconductive laser control circuit. The semiconductive la- ser performs monitor efficiency regulation (a process to control monitor current for the light amount), and laser itself is adjusted to initial output emission of approx. 2.11 mW (approx. 421 µW on the drum surface). The regulated voltage of the monitor output is fed back to the laser power comparison cir- cuit. This monitor output voltage is compared with the laser power voltage set for the control circuit for every scanning. Laser driver circuit increases the forward current if the laser power is insufficient, and decreases the current when the power is excessive to maintain a constant optical output. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 8 - 7 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 LASER OPTICAL UNIT...

  • Page 169 This roller moves up and down to draw out a sheet of paper from the bypass tray or the drawer, and transport it to the feed roller. (2) Feed roller This roller transports the paper from the pickup roller to the registration roller. (3) Separation roller This roller is mounted against the feed roller. When two sheets of paper or more are transported from the pickup roller, the load of the torque limiter (spring) of the separation roller is greater than the frictional force between the sheets. As the result, the separation roller is stopped and the lower sheet of paper is not transported any further. When only one sheet of paper is transported from the pickup roller, the separation roller is forced to rotate following the feed roller. (4) Transport roller This roller transports the paper from the feed roller to the registration roller. (5) Registration roller Paper transported from the feed roller is pushed against the registration rollers, which aligns the leading edge of paper. The registration roller then rotates to transport the paper to the transfer section. The following sensors detect the presence/absence of paper and the position of the paper being trans- ported, to control the ON/OFF of the corresponding rollers. (6) Bypass paper sensor This sensor detects whether paper is set in the bypass tray or not. If it is, bypass feeding is per- formed in preference to drawer feeding. (7) Bypass feed sensor This sensor detects whether paper has been transported from the bypass tray or not. It also de- tects whether the leading/trailing edge of paper has passed the feed sensor or not. This sensor is utilized to detect the jams such as paper misfeeding in the bypass unit. (8) Drawer empty sensor This is a transmissive-type sensor which detects the presence/absence of paper in the drawer using an actuator. When there is no paper in the drawer, the actuator blocks the light path of the sensor. Then the sensor determines that there is no paper. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 9 - 3 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 PAPER FEEDING SYSTEM...
  • Page 170 (9) Drawer paper stock sensor This is a transmissive-type sensor which detects the amount of paper remaining in the drawer us- ing an actuator. When the remaining paper has become around 100 sheets, the actuator blocks the light path of the sensor to notify that the paper quantity is getting less. (10) Feed sensor This sensor detects whether the leading/trailing edge of paper has passed the feed roller or not. It also detects jams such as paper misfeeding. (11) Registration sensor This sensor detects whether the leading edge of the paper has reached the registration roller or not, and the trailing edge of paper has passed the registration roller or not. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 9 - 4 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved PAPER FEEDING SYSTEM...

    Gear on the equipment side Bypass feed clutch Coupling Bypass transport roller Bypass feed roller Bypass pickup roller Bypass separation roller Fig. 9-201 When the paper is set on the bypass tray, the bypass feed sensor detects the presence of the paper. Then the bypass pickup solenoid is turned ON and the pickup arm falls by its own weight. At this time, when the bypass feed clutch is turned ON, the drive from the equipment is transmitted to the pickup roller through the coupling and timing belt. Then the paper is picked up. The paper picked up is transported to the transport path on the equipment side by the feed roller and transport roller. When there is no paper remaining on the bypass tray, the bypass pickup solenoid is turned OFF and the pickup roller returns by the spring force. The separation roller works not to transport paper more than one sheet at a time. 9.2.2 Operation of drawer pickup roller Drawer feed clutch Drawer feed roller Drawer pickup roller Drawer separation roller Fig. 9-202 When the drawer is inserted, the pickup roller and roller holder fall by the spring force. Then the drawer tray lifts up and paper feeding is enabled. When the drawer feed clutch is turned ON, the drive from the equipment is transmitted. Then the feed roller and pickup roller rotate to transport the paper from the drawer. The separation roller under the feed roller prevents multiple transporting of paper. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 9 - 5 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 PAPER FEEDING SYSTEM...

    12.2 Functions (1) Toner cartridge drive unit / Toner cartridge detection switch The toner cartridge is filled with toner. The toner motor drives the cartridge to supply the toner to the developer unit. The toner cartridge detection switch detects whether the toner cartridge is installed. (2) Developer unit (a) Developer material The developer material is made of a mixture of the carrier and toner. The carrier is an electrical conductive ferrite whose size is 30µm to 100µm. The toner is a resin particle whose size is 5µm to 20µm. The developer material needs periodic replacement since its quality is deteriorated by long use. (b) Mixers-1 and -2 Friction is generated by mixing the developer material. The carrier is charged to (+) and the toner to (–), and the image is formed on the drum surface by the static electricity caused by the friction. (c) Developer sleeve (Magnetic roller) This is an aluminum roller with a magnet inside. The magnet works to absorb the developer material and forms the magnetic brush. The magnet is fixed and only the sleeve around is rotated. This rotation makes the magnetic brush of the developer sleeve sweep over the drum surface and perform development. (d) Doctor blade Doctor blade controls the amount of the developer material transported by the developer sleeve so that the magnetic brush of the developer material contacts with the drum surface properly. (e) Auto-toner sensor The carrier and the toner (toner density) in the developer material should be always fixed to a certain ratio to output normal images. The auto-toner sensor detects the inclusion ratio of the toner in the developer material by using a magnetic bridge circuit. When the quantity of toner becomes insufficient, the toner motor is driven to supply the toner from the toner cartridge. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 12 - 2 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM...

    Automatically adjusts the output value of the auto-toner sensor responding to humidity (input value to the main CPU) for the toner density of the new developer material so that it stays in range of 2.35 to 2.45V. b. Stabilizing the toner density —During the printing operation Maintains the toner density to a certain ratio as follows. Toner is consumed. →The toner density is lowered. →Change in the auto-toner sensor output responding to humidity is detected. →The toner motor is driven. →Toner is supplied from the toner cartridge to the developer unit. c. Toner-empty detection and recovery: Detects that there is no toner in the toner cartridge: The toner motor is driven. →The auto-toner sensor output does not change. →The toner density does not change. →It is determined there is no toner in the cartridge (toner empty). Recovering from the toner-empty state: The toner motor is driven. →Toner is supplied from toner cartridge. →The auto-toner sensor output changes. →The toner density returns to normal value. →The toner-empty state is cleared. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 12 - 5 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM...

    Then the paper transported to the fuser unit is hold between the fuser roller and pressure roller and the toner is fused on the paper with heat and pressure. After this, the separation fingers separate the paper from the fuser roller or pressure roller. Then the paper is transported to the receiving tray, paper exiting options or ADU through the exit roller. In addition, the IH coil in the fuser roller does not structurally rotate. The thermistors control the temperature of fuser roller and detect temperature abnormalities. If the temperature becomes excessively high, the thermostat is opened to stop the power supply to the IH coil. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 13 - 1 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 FUSER UNIT / PAPER EXIT SECTION...
  • Page 240: Functions

    13.3 Functions (1) IH coil (IH: Induction Heating) The IH coil is inside the fuser roller and applies the induction heating to the fuser roller. The coil is fixed at a position and does not move when the fuser roller is rotating. (2) Fuser roller The fuser roller is a metal roller which generates heat spontaneously with eddy current produced by the electromagnetic induction of IH coil. The fuser roller is heated by this self-heating of this roller, and then the toner is fused on the paper. (3) Pressure roller The pressure roller is a sponge roller which assures the nip amount between the fuser roller. The pressure arm and spring press the fuser roller. The toner is fused effectively by the pressure of this roller. (4) Separation fingers The separation fingers are installed, five above the pressure roller and six above the fuser roller, in order to separate the paper adhered on each roller. (5) Cleaning roller The cleaning roller is a fluorinated metal roller which removes the residual toner and paper dust adhered on the pressure roller. (6) Main thermistor This thermistor detects the temperature of the fuser roller to maintain it in a certain temperature range (actually around 200°C) between the lower limit causing the poor fusing and the upper limit causing the high temperature offsetting. When the temperature of the fuser roller is lower than the preset temperature, it turns ON the power supply to the IH coil, and when it is higher than the preset temperature, it cuts off the supply. (7) Edge thermistor It detects the temperature abnormality at the both ends of the fuser roller. This area may be overheated without heat absorption by paper since paper does not pass through this area. This thermistor is not related to the temperature control of the fuser roller. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 13 - 2 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved FUSER UNIT / PAPER EXIT SECTION...
  • Page 241 (8) Thermostat The thermostat cuts off the power supply to the IH coil by opening itself if the fuser roller becomes abnormally hot as a result of the problem such as thermistor malfunction. The thermostat for this equipment is used to prevent abnormal operation. When the thermostat detects any abnormality, it must be replaced as well as the other damaged parts in the fuser unit. (9) Exit sensor This sensor detects the arrival of the leading or trailing edge of the paper at the exit roller of the fuser unit. It also detects paper jams in the fuser unit paper exit area and trailing edge of paper turned over for duplex printing. (10) Exit motor The exit motor is a stepping motor which drives the exit roller and bridge unit. (11) Exit roller This roller transports the paper from the fusing section to the receiving tray, paper exiting options or the ADU and is driven by the exit motor. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 13 - 3 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 FUSER UNIT / PAPER EXIT SECTION...

  • Page 248: Thermistor/Heater Status Counter Control

    • To enhance the safety of the fusing section unit, CPU provides the following protection: When the third [C410] error has occurred after two consecutive [C410] errors, the IH coil is not turned ON and error [C410] is displayed immediately even if an operator turns OFF the power and back ON. However, if the equipment goes into a ready state normally with the thermistor/heater status counter “1” or below, the counter is cleared to “0”. • If the error codes [C410] to [C450] are displayed and still not cleared even though the thermis- tor, thermostat and IH coil have been repaired (and the power ON/OFF does not clear the er- Reference *The thermistor/heater status counter never has values other than 0-18. • If the IH coil does not turn ON and the service call [C410] is displayed immediately after the power is ON, ensure the thermistor/heater status counter is “2” or over. If it is “2” or over, be sure to check the thermistor, thermostat and IH coil. Reset the counter to “0” (Setting Mode (08-400)) after repairing them, then turn ON the power. • If the thermistor/heater status counter is “19” or over (e.g., 21), the data in NVRAM or NVRAM itself may possibly have been ruined due to causes such as leakage from the char- gers. Check the bias, high-voltage transformers and charge wires to see if any of them is defective, and also look through all the data in the NVRAM. • When the thermistors detect overheating, the CPU decides the error code and counter value of the fuser roller thermistor status. After turning OFF each output (the IH coil, exposure lamp, control panel display, motors and so on), the CPU turns OFF the power to protect the fuser unit. Error code: C440 ([C] and [8]) Counter value of the fuser roller thermistor status: 9 (08-400) Thermistors continue detecting the abnormal temperature even after the error codes and counter values are decided. Even if the power is turned ON immediately, it is automatically turned OFF again when the surface temperature of the fuser roller is still higher than the abnormal temperature detected. Wait until the surface temperature of the fuser roller is lowered enough, and turn ON the power to check the counter value while it is turned OFF again. After confirming that it is the IH control abnormality, correct the abnormality and clear the counter value (08-400) to "0" to start up the equipment normally. e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 13 - 10 © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved FUSER UNIT / PAPER EXIT SECTION...
  • Page 249 (6) Temperature detection configuration Thermistor is a device whose resistance decreases as it detects a higher temperature. Thus its input voltage to CPU changes and then CPU judges whether this change is normal or abnormal. If one of the fuser roller thermistors is broken, the control circuit judges that the fuser roller tem- perature is extremely low and keeps turning the IH coil ON. As a result, the fuser roller tempera- ture rises, and possibly activates the thermostat which is a safety protection device. To prevent this in advance, CPU works to detect whether each thermistor is broken or not. Also, the thermistors constantly check the temperature of IH coil to prevent it from excessive heating by IH circuit abnormality, LGC circuit abnormality or thermistor abnormality. The therm- istors automatically turn OFF the power when the temperature of IH coil exceeds the specified temperature.

  • Page 265: Automatic Duplexing Unit (Adu)

    The Automatic Duplexing Unit (ADU) is a unit to automatically print on both sides of paper. A switch- back method using the exit roller is adopted for the ADU of this equipment. A sheet of paper is switchbacked by the exit roller right after the printing operation (fusing operation) on one side is completed, and the reversed sheet is transported to the registration section for the other side of the sheet to be printed. The ADU mainly consists of the transport rollers and their drive system, paper guide and ADU en- trance/exit sensor.

  • Page 266: Description Of Operations

    14.2 Description of Operations The back side printing (recording data of the back side of paper) is performed first by selecting duplex printing mode and pressing the [START] button. When the trailing edge of the paper passes the exit gate, the paper is switchbacked by the exit roller and transported into the ADU (the exit gate is closed with its own weight), and then the switchbacked paper is transported with acceleration. The transporta- tion decelerates in front of the upper transport roller of the ADU. The front side printing (recording data of the front side of paper) is performed at the registration section. The paper passes through the exit gate again and is transported to the receiving tray to complete duplex printing. There are three methods of judging a paper jam: (1) whether the ADU entrance sensor is turned ON or not in a specified period of time after the switchback to the ADU started (E510). (2) whether the ADU exit sensor is turned ON or not in a specified period of time after the ADU entrance sensor is turned ON (E520). (3) whether the registration switch is turned ON or not in a specified period of time after the paper feeding from the ADU to the equipment (E110). If the ADU is opened during duplex printing, the ADU motor and ADU clutch are stopped, namely, ADU open jam occurs (E430). The equipment is never to be stopped during printing by interruption in any case except paper jam or service call. The operation of the duplex printing differs depending on the size of the paper; single-paper circulation and alternateness circulation. The figures in the following pages show the circulating operations during duplex copying. The numbers in the figures indicate the page numbers. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 4 - 2 AUTOMATIC DUPLEXING UNIT...

    : Power supply used in the entire equipment during image forming process. Five kinds of voltage (+3.3V, +5.1V, +12V, –12V* and +24V*) are output when the main switch of the equipment is turned ON. *: e-STUDIO350/450 only b. Door switch line : Power supply used in the entire equipment during image forming process, being supplied via the door switch. Two kinds of voltage (+5.1VD and +24VD) are output only when the main switch of the equipment is turned ON and two doors (front cover and jam access cover) are closed. 15.2 Operation of DC Output Circuits (1) Starting line output When the main switch of the equipment is turned ON, power starts supplying to all the lines only when two doors (front cover and jam access cover) are closed. (2) Stopping line output When the main switch of the equipment is turned OFF, PWR-DN signal is output after the instan- taneous outage insurance time (20 ms or more) elapses and then the supply of each voltage stops. If the supply of voltage of the main line (+3.3VA, +5.1VA, +12VA, -12VA) stops earlier than the 24V line does, it may cause the damage of the electron device on each control circuit. To pre- vent this, the supply of these voltages stops after the PWR-DN signal is output and the minimum retaining time (+3.3VA/+5.1VA: 50 ms or more, +12VA/-12VA: 5 ms or more) elapses. (3) Output protection Each output system includes an overcurrent and overvoltage protection circuits (a fuse and in- ternal protection circuit). This is to prevent the defectives (damage or abnormal operation of the secondary circuit) which may be caused by an overcurrent due to a short circuit or an overvoltage due to a short circuit between different voltages. If the protection circuit is activated (except the case the fuse is blown out), remove the causes such as short-circuit. Turn ON the power again 1 minute later to clear the overcurrent protection. © 2003 - 2008 TOSHIBA TEC CORPORATION All rights reserved 15 - 1 e-STUDIO350/352/353/450/452/453 POWER SUPPLY UNIT 05/11...
