SAFETY CIRCUITS
Exposure Lamp (L1) Overheating
Protection Circuit

The electrical circuit of this machine contains the following


safety circuits to prevent an accident from occurring in the
event of an abnormality.
Overall safety circuit protector
Exposure lamp (L1) overheating protection circuit
Fusing heater lamps (L2, L4) overheating protection
circuit
These safety circuits are described below to provide the
service engineer with a renewed awareness of them in order
to prevent servicing errors that may impair their function.

Overall Safety Circuit Protector

Protection function provided by software


When the L1 CONT signal output from the protection
function control board (CB) by software becomes [L], L1
lights. At the same time, the L1 FB signal, which indicates
that L1 is lit, is output from DCPS2 to the CB.
The CB monitors both the L1 CONT and L1 FB signals.
If they differ from each other, main relay (RL1) will be
turned OFF, and power to L1 will be cut off.
CAUTION:
The function of RL1 must not be deactivated under any circumstances.

Protection function provided by the circuit breaker


(CBR)

Protection function using hardware timer circuit


(HT)

This function breaks the AC line instantaneously in the


event that an excessive current flows due to a short
between the AC line, for example.
CAUTION:
The function of the CBR must not be deactivated under any circumstances
whatever.

If L1 remains lit for more than prescribed time because of


some abnormality, the hardware timer on DCPS2 will
operate, forcibly cutting off the relay on this board.
CAUTION:
The function of relay must not be deactivated under any circumstances.

Protection function using optics temperature fuse


(f1)
If the temperature in the vicinity of f1 rises above
prescribed temperature f1 will blow, cutting off the flow
of current to L1.
CAUTION:
Do not under any circumstances use a
piece of wire, etc., In place of f1.

xi

Protection function provided by the upper thermostat


(TS1) and lower thermostat (TS2)

Fusing Heater Lamp (L2, L4) Overheating


Protection Circuit

This function turns OFF TS1 or TS2, directly cutting off the
power to L2, L3 and L4, if the temperature of the either
upper fusing roller or lower fusing roller exceeds the
specified value.
CAUTION:
Do not substitute a different electrical
conductor in place of TS1 or TS2.

Protection function provided by software


This function turns OFF fusing heater lamp 1 (L2), fusing
heater lamp 2 (L4) and main relay (RL1) in the event that
the output voltage from fusing temperature sensor 1 (TH1)
read the CPU is abnormal.
CAUTION:
Periodically check the contact face of
TH1 with respect to the roller, and replace
TH1 if it is abnormal.
The function of RL1 must not be deactivated under any circumstances.

Protection function provided by hardware circuit


This function uses a comparator circuit which compares
the output voltage of fusing temperature sensors 1 and 2
(TH1 and TH2) with the abnormal judgment reference
value. It disconnects L2, L4 and RL1 from the circuit in
the event that the output voltage of TH1 or TH2 exceeds
the reference value.
CAUTION:
Periodically check the contact face of TH1,
TH2 with respect to the roller, and replace
TH1, TH2 if it is abnormal.
The function of RL1 must not be deactivated under any circumstances.

Outline
A halogen lamp is used as the light source. The light from the
lamp is directed onto the original.
The light reflected off the original is reflected by the 1st, 2nd and
3rd mirrors shown in Figure 3. Then, it is passed through the
lens and directed onto the CCD image sensor.
The CCD image sensor consists of 5000 pixels. One pixel is
7 m in length, and the length on the original that can be read
by one pixel is 63.5 m.

White Correction

Outline

The voltage output from each pixel of the CCD sensor


when the white reference plate is exposed to the light from
the exposure lamp is memorized as the maximum output
value for that pixel.

The analog signal produced by the CCD sensor on the A/D


board is subjected to analog processing, then A/D-converted,
and subjected to image processing.
Image processing consists of shading correction, brightness/
density conversion, AES processing, text/dot pattern
judgement, filter/magnification change processing, copy
correction, write density correction, and 2-beam control. In
addition, error dispersion processing and data compression
are carried out within the electronic RDH.

Black Correction
The output voltage from each pixel of the CCD sensor
when the exposure lamp is out is memorized as the
minimum output voltage for that pixel.

Based on the difference between the white and black


data for each pixel memorized in 1 and 2 above, the
calculated result that indicates the number of the step
corresponding to the image data read from the original
is output to an accuracy of 10 bits.

Analog Processing
In the analog processing unit, the minute signals from the CCD
sensor are amplified and level-shifted into the A/D conversion
range.
Amplification and level-shifting are done automatically during
shading correction timing by an electronic variable resistor.
There is no need for any manual adjustment.

A/D Conversion
The image signals from the analog processing unit are converted one pixel at a time into 9-bit digital signals.

Shading Correction
Shading correction evens out the light distribution of the CCD
sensor. The following correction takes place at the specified
timing.
Figure 5

Brightness/Density Conversion

ADF mode (1-1): 176 mm x 28 mm

The signal resulting from shading correction corresponds to


the light reflected off the original, hence it is referred to as a
brightness signal. The brightness/density conversion section
converts the brightness signal into a density signal, as shown
below.

Text/Dot Pattern Identification


In order to copy an original under the optimum conditions , the
text/dot pattern identification section judges whether the read
is text, dot pattern, or a photograph, and uses the results in the
subsequent filtering section.

176 mm

Filtering
The appropriate filtering takes place according to the kind of
original and the selected magnification.

Text filter: highlights the light and dark parts of the


original.

Dot pattern filter: reduces moire.

Photograph filter: improves the gray scale reproduction.

In an analog machine, the lead-to-trail magnification is changed


by changing the scanning speed of the exposure unit, and
front-to-rear magnification by changing the position of the
lens. In this machine, the lead-to-trail magnification is changed
by changing the scanning speed of the exposure unit, and the
front-to-rear magnification by means of electrical image
processing.
The read unit of the CCD (63.5 m) and the write unit of the
laser (63.5 m) are equal to each other, and remain unchanged
when the copy image is enlarged or reduced in the vertical
direction. As a result, write data that corresponds exactly to the
write position when the image is enlarged or reduced in the
vertical direction sometimes fails to exist.

As shown in the example of Figure 11, if the pixel data obtained


when the original is read by the CCD is D1 to D5, the positions
of the read data when the image is reduced overlap each other
as indicated by R1to R5, hence the write positions fail to
coincide with the read positions. Therefore, the write density
is determined as shown below.

Original read position

Front-to-Rear Magnification Change Processing


During Enlargement

Data position when the


image is reduced

As shown in the example of Figure 10, if the pixel data


obtained when the original is read by the CCD is D1 to D5,
the positions of the read data when the image is enlarged
are E1 to E5.. However, the following problems will occur
if the write data consists of this read data alone.

There will be a gap between one data and the next,


resulting in gaps in the image.

The data position and write position will not coincide


exactly.
Consequently, if the read data that corresponds exactly to
the write position fails to exist, as indicated by the dotted
lines of Figure 10, the write density is determined as shown
below.

Density Correction
Figure 11 is a graph the vertical axis of which represents
density (256 steps) and the horizontal axis of which represents
position: Here, the distance between E2 and E1 of Figure 10
is set out on the horizontal axis and divided into 16 steps. If the
position with respect to write data W2 is
, the density S can
be obtained using the following equation.

S = E1 + ( E2 E1 ) x

Reversal Processing

Image Compression Processing

This function reverses the input brightness data in order to


reverse black and white when the reverse copy mode is
selected.

This processing function stores compressed image data in


the memory to enable a large quantity of image data to be
stored when electronic RDH is used.

Copy Correction

Memory

The copy correction function selects the density curve


corresponding to the density selected by the density button on
the operation panel. The selected density curve is applied to
the data that was subjected to filter/magnification change
processing.
Suitable density curves are provided for the text, photo, and
text and photo modes.

The memory can hold about seventy 8.5x11 size originals


consisting of average word processor text. The number of
pages will be less than this if the originals include many
photographs and halftone dot images. Expansion memory
units MU-101 and MU-102 are available as options.

Two-beam control
This function is used to adjust the timing of the laser data from
the two beams and also to detect and correct any deviation
between the two beams.

Selector, SGU
Selector is a function that switches between the image signal
from the electronic RDH, and the read time image processed
signal.
SGU is a function that generates various test patterns .

Write Density Control

Copy density

The write density control function converts image data to the


optimum laser exposure based on the characteristics related
to the drum like drum potential, toner density, etc.

Collimator Lens

Polygon Mirror

Figure 16 shows the function of the collimator lens. This lens


is used to form the light that diverges from a point source into
a parallel beam.

This is a multi-sided mirror which converts the laser beam into


a scanning beam. The polygon mirror in this machine has
eight sides. Figure 18 shows the appearance of the polygon
mirror.

f Lens
The polygon mirror rotates at a constant angular speed.
Consequently, if a general image forming lens were to be used,
the speed at which the laser beam scans the surface of the
drum would vary between the center and the edge of the drum,
as shown in Figure 19.

MAIN BODY

Cylindrical Lenses
Two lenses, cylindrical lens 1 (Cy1) and cylindrical lens 2
(Cy1), are used to eliminate the tilt error of the polygon mirror.
Cylindrical lenses 1 and 2 are positioned before and after the
polygon mirror, as shown in Figure 21. The laser beam is
focused on the polygon mirror by cylindrical lens 1, and the
light reflected off the polygon mirror is once again focused on
the drum by cylindrical lens 2.
The optical relationship between the polygon mirror and the
drum face with respect to cylindrical lens 2 is that of image and
object. Consequently, even if the polygon mirror is tilted, the
light path is corrected by cylindrical lens 2, ensuring that the
beam is scanned along the same line.

M12 (Optics Drive) Control


M12 (optics drive) is driven by the optics motor drive board
(OPMDB), and is controlled by the control board (CB).
Related signals are PS1 (optics overrun), PS2 (optics ADF and
EE), PS3 (shading), PS4 (paper supply restart), PS5 (optics
return), PS7 (optics timing) and PS8 (platen glass sensor).

Operation
Operation of M12
M12 is a 3-phase brushless DC motor which is driven using
a 3-phase bipolar method. The current flowing through the
windings is switched according to the position of the rotor
which is detected by a sensor (magnetic sensor) inside the
motor.

sensor being sent to the control board (CB) when the original
cover is opened and closed.
Related signals are PS45 (APS timing 1) and PS44 (book
detection).

Operation
The light reflected off the exposed original passes through a
lens to the CCD sensor. The analog voltages that correspond
to the input light intensity are A/D-converted in the ADB, and
output to the image processing board (IPB).

Operation
APS detection operation
APS detection is an operation that detects the paper size
according to the particular ON/OFF combination of PS41
(long), and PS42 (APS (inner)).

These are output signals from the position sensors
(magnetic sensors) contained in M5. The PMDB detects
the position of the rotor of the motor by means of these
signals, and switches over the M5 DRIVE A to C
output.
PMDB output signal
VMAG- (PMDB > M5)
This is the GND line to the rotor position sensors
(magnetic sensors) contained in M5.

M5 DRIVE A to C (PMDB > M5)


This is the drive output signal for M5. While M5 is
rotating, voltages are output sequentially from M12
DRIVE A to C, and applied to M5.
The voltage from each output that is applied to M5
consists of the pulses shown below. The pulse width
of this output changes according to the rotation condition
of M5, as shown in the figure, and as a result the RMS
value of the voltage applied to M5 changes, causing
the speed to be regulated.

M5 (polygon) is driven by the polygon driver board (PMDB),


and is controlled by the control board (CB).

Operation
M5 is a 3-phase brushless DC motor which is driven
using a 3-phase bipolar method. The current flowing
through the windings is switched according to the position
of the rotor which is detected by a sensor (magnetic)
inside the motor.
This motor rotates the polygon mirror, causing the laser
beams from LDB1 and 2 (laser diode boards 1 and 2) to
be scanned in the axial direction of the drum. The speed
of the motor is maintained constant by PLL control.
M5 is powered by 24 VDC. The rotational speed is as
follows.

Image Write Control

Operation

The analog image data from the CCD sensor is A/D-converted


by the A/D converter board (ADB), then sent to the image
processing board (IPB) where it is data-processed. The
processed image data is converted into a laser beam and
applied to the drum with control signals from the CB. There are
two lasers which are used to write two lines of image data in a
single scan. The write start position of each laser is detected
by the index sensor board (INDXSB). The electronic RDH (ERDH) can store digitized image data. Various editing functions
can be carried out based on this data.

Image processing
The following processing is done by the image processing
board (IPB).

Laser beam position correction
Axial direction of drum
The index sensor detects the magnitude of the
error. This error is corrected by changing the timing
of the light emission from the laser.
Direction of rotation of drum
The index sensor detects the degree of
misalignment, and M40 (laser correction motor)
changes the angle of the fine adjustment prism of
laser LD1, thus adjusting the beam in the up/down
direction.

The following processing is performed by the E-RDH


(electronic RDH processing board).
Error diffusion processing
Data compression
The write operation takes place under instructions from the
CB after the above processing has been completed.
Write
The image processing board (IPB) sends image data one pixel
at a time to LDB1 and LDB2 in accordance with control signals
from the control board (CB).
LDB1 and LDB2 cause the lasers to emit light pulses of a length
corresponding to the image data. This laser light illuminates
the drum.
Automatic adjustment of laser beam intensity (APC)
The CB monitors the laser drive current at fixed intervals,
and maintains the light intensity at the correct value.
APC takes place at the following timing.
Before Dmax/gray scale correction
When the copy button is pressed
After each two copies during a continuous copy
operation
When the front door is opened and closed.
Note: MPC
MPC is the data (00-99steps) stored in the NVRAM in the main
body, which determines the LD output power to be adjusted
later by APC. It can be read out by 47-036, 47-037. MPC value
is sent from CB to IPB in case of step 1 or step 2 in APC above.

The drum unit of this machine is an integral assembly


consisting of the drum, and also the charge corona
unit, developing unit, cleaning unit, toner recycle unit
and the PCL which are installed around the drum.
*1: Auxiliary separation
Three separation claws separate the paper from
the drum and prevent paper jamming. These
claws are pressed against the drum or removed
from it by the ON/OFF operation of the separation
claw solenoid (SD4).
Also, while the swing latch installed in the swing
block is turning one revolution, the separation
claws slide about 7 mm, preventing a specific part
of the paper from becoming dirty and also preventing
the drum from being scratched.

MAIN BODY

Removing and Reinstalling the Drum


Caution:

Do not to touch the drum or the cleaning blade with


bare hands, or damage these parts.

When leaving the drum out, be sure to cover the drum


and store it in a dark place.

When reinstalling the drum, cleaning blade and guide


roller, apply setting powder to the entire surface of the
drum and also to the cleaning blade regardless of
whether or not the parts are new or old. In addition,
apply toner to both ends of the cleaning blade.

After applying setting powder to the drum, carry out the


following work before installing the drum unit on the
main body.
1) To ensure that the toner density is correct, before
installing the drum to the drum unit, discharge the
surface of the detecting sensor and the Dmax
sensor on the control board by using a piece of
cloth moistened with alcohol, thus preventing the
toner from adhering to the sensors.
2) After installing the drum in the drum unit, with the
charging corona unit and the developing unit
removed, insert the centering jigs into both sides of
the drum, then turn the drum one revolution. This
prevents setting powder from scattering onto the
charging corona unit, and other parts, and also
prevents image defects.

Do not drop the blade spacer which is inserted on the


cleaning blade axis on the back side.

When installing the drum, be careful of the orientation


of the drum. The end of the drum with the wider nonimage area is the front.

When installing a new drum, be sure to enter code 91


of the 47 mode and reset the drum counter. (For
details, refer to the adjustment section.)

To enhance its performance and to help prevent arcing, keeping


this unit clean is important. If the cleaning block is not cleaned
properly (this problem was corrected in machines with serial
number 25SE04289 and above), the cleaning block can bind,
resulting in code F22-2 (cleaning wire trouble) or other related
codes such as F35-1, F36-1, and F43-2. Improper cleaning of
the corona wire will also result in poor separation.
The procedure below should be performed when poor
separation occurs, when code F22-2 occurs, and/or when the
machine is scheduled for a PM.
Caution: When cleaning the transfer/separation corona unit, do
not remove the transfer guide plate assembly (p/n 25SA-2660).
This part must be installed with a special fixture to correctly
position the part; this cannot be done in the field. An improperly
installed transfer guide plate may affect transfer/separation
performance.

wire pressure pad. Also, do not apply grease to the
wire pressure pad of the transfer cleaning block
assembly.
b) Once this procedure has been performed, it doesn't
need to be repeated at subsequent PMs.
c) Do not perform this procedure on the transfer
cleaning block assembly or its wire pressure pad. If
this pad is positioned poorly, it is because of the
incorrect position of the separation cleaning block
assembly.

[H]: M35 OFF

The toner density is controlled by the toner density sensor


(TDS), M35 (agitator screw), M10 (toner supply) and the CB.

Operation
Toner density detection
The TDS detects the density of the toner in the developing
unit using an L detection method, and outputs an analog
voltage signal that is proportion to the density to the CB.
The CB compares the detected voltage with the reference
voltage corresponding to the initial density of the developer,
and judges the necessity of supplying toner.
Toner supply operation
M10 is driven by 24 VDC supplied from the DC driver board
(DCDB).

When the power is switched ON


M35 (agitator screw) starts to rotate as soon as the
machine is switched ON, then after 3 minutes the toner
density is read. This density is compared with the initial
density of the developer, and if the density is low, toner
supply takes place.

During a copy operation


The relationship between the TDS output voltage and
the toner supply time is as follows.

Dmax control is done by the toner control sensor board


(TCSB), M4 (drum), M3 (developer sleeve), and so on. These
parts are controlled by the CB.

Operation
Dmax control is intended to control the maximum density
for each machine based on the reference level.

Contents of implementation
Latent images are created several times at the
maximum exposure, the images are developed while
the rotational speed of the sleeve is varied, then each
density is read by the PDI on the TCSB.
The rotational speed of the sleeve when the density
reaches the reference level is stored in memory as the
optimum sleeve speed, then subsequently developing
is carried out at this sleeve speed until Dmax correction
takes place next.

Revised 3/98

Gray Scale Correction Control

Contents of implementation
Exposure is performed while the laser exposure is
varied over several steps, and development is
performed at the sleeve speed resulting from Dmax
correction.
Subsequently, each density is read by PD2 on the
TCSB, and the toner density and the gradation
characteristics of the toner density is detected.
The gradation characteristics obtained here are used
as the correction values for the laser exposure amount.

Caution:

Be sure that the power cord has been unplugged from the power outlet.

Caution:

Do not touch the edge of the cleaning blade with bare


hands.

When installing the drum, the cleaning blade and the


guide roller, coat the entire surface of the drum and the
cleaning blade with setting powder, regardless of
whether the drum and cleaning blade are new or old.
Also, apply toner to both edges of the cleaning blade.

Once the drum has been coated with setting powder,


carry out the following work before installing the drum
unit on the main body.
1) To ensure that the toner density is correct, before
installing the drum in the drum unit, discharge the
the surface of the detecting sensor and the
Dmax sensor on the control board by using a
piece of cloth moistened with alcohol, thus
preventing toner from adhering to the sensors.
2) After installing the drum in the drum unit, with the
charging corona unit and the developing unit
removed, insert the centering jigs into both sides
of the drum, then turn the drum one revolution.
This prevents setting powder from scattering onto
the charging corona unit and also prevents image
defects.
Take care that the blade spacer mounted on the
cleaning blade shaft at the back does not drop out.

Note: Before removing the drum, in order to prevent the


toner from dropping, rotate cleaner gear (B)
counterclockwise and remove the toner remaining
between the drum and the guide roller. If the toner
cannot be removed, rotate the drum clockwise a bit,
then detatch the drum keeping the toner in place.

The paper feed direction and the cassette loading direction


are at right angles to each other. Consequently, if the feed
roller is fixed, it will touch the paper when the cassette is
removed, resulting in possible paper jamming. To prevent
this, the swivel roller (paper feed roller) is designed so that
it drops down and touches the paper only when paper feed
is taking place.

When the tray is being removed, the projection on the right


side of the tray strikes the paper up/down base release
lever, causing the paper lift-up gear to be disengaged by
the gear coupling lever. As a result, the up/down base falls
under its own weight.

Paper Feed Control

DCPS1

Operation

The 1st paper feed takes place as a result of the transmission


of drive force from M13 (paper feed) via MC5 (1st paper feed
(upper)), MC6 (1st paper feed (lower)) and MC7 (bypass paper
feed) to the respective paper feed rollers. At this time, the
paper feed rollers are not touching the paper, hence the swivel
roller and the by-pass plate are moved up and down by SD1
(1st paper feed (upper), SD2 (1st paper feed (lower)) and SD3
(bypass paper feed), causing each roller to touch the paper.
Control of each roller is done by the control board (CB). The
2nd paper feed is done by MC3. Related signals are PS11
(conveyance door), PS14 (registration), PS18 (no feed), PS19
(optics sync), PS20 (pre-feed (upper)), PS21 (pre-feed (lower))
and PS30 (bypass).

During continuous paper feed from the LCT/ADU, the


CB checks the state of PS18 (no feed) when the paper
reaches the specified position past PS19, and if the
previous sheet of paper is still at PS18, the CB temporarily stops paper feed.
Paper feed restarts after the trailing edge of the previously fed paper has passed PS18 (no feed).

*1: Paper lift-up


The paper tray is suspended by four up/down drive wires
(wires (A) and (B) two each).
When paper is supplied to the tray, the tray drops under the
weight of the paper, however the weight of the paper is
balanced by the tension of the auxiliary drive spring.
When the paper tray is loaded, the tray motor (M402, M403)
rotates, and the wire is wound up on the drive reel, causing
the tray to rise.
When the paper tray is withdrawn from the pedestal, the
coupling between the tray and the tray drive section is
released, hence the tray falls to a position where the weight
of the paper is balanced by the tension of the auxiliary drive
spring.

(LCT conveyance open/close detection).

Operation
When MS141 or MS142 detects a paper tray, M141 or
M142 goes ON, causing the corresponding tray to rise.
The tray rises until PS142 or PS143 detects the upper limit
of the paper and goes ON, then M141 or M142 goes OFF,
and the tray stops rising.
The paper is fed until PS142 or PS143 goes OFF, then
M414 or M142 goes ON once again, and the tray rises.
The lowering operation of both the 1500 tray and 1000 tray
takes place mechanically.

(2) Reinstall the paper feed/conveyance section in the


opposite sequence to removal. In this case, however,
install the front left and right set screws first.

The paper feed and reversal operations take place as a result


of the transmission of rotational force from M151 (ADU paper
feed) to the conveyance roller and the reversal roller by means
of CL151 (ADU paper feed) and CL152 (ADU reversal).
M151, CL151 and CL152 are driven by the DC drive board
(DCDB) which is controlled by the CB.
Related signals are PS151 (ADU no paper detection), PS152
(ADU paper feed),PS153 (ADU reversal detection) and
PS157(ADU gate).

Operation
Paper feed control
M151 goes ON after the specified time from when MC3
(2nd paper feed) goes ON. When PS152 detects the
leading edge of the paper conveyed from the ADU paper
exit/conveyance section and goes ON, CL151 goes ON,
causing the rotational force of M151 to be transmitted to the
conveyance roller. As a result, paper is fed to the stacker
from the bottom of the selector gate. CL151 goes OFF after
the specified time from when PS152 detects the trailing
edge of the paper and goes OFF.
For the second sheet of paper, CL151 goes ON again after
the specified time from when CL152 is turned OFF by the
passage of the 1st sheet. The same operation is repeated
for the subsequent sheets as well.

2-116

MAIN BODY
M151 goes OFF 80 ms after PS19 (optics sync) goes OFF
when the series of control operations in the ADU is completed.

Reversal control
When CL151 goes OFF, CL152 goes ON after the specified
time, and the rotational force of M151 is transmitted to the
reversal roller. As a result, the paper in the ADU paper feed
section is reversed and conveyed, then exited from the top
of the selector gate to the conveyance section. CL152 is
turned OFF after the specified time from when PS153 goes
OFF as a result of detecting the trailing edge of the paper.

ADU Mis-centering Detection Control

The mis-centering detection board (IPDB) detects the rear


edge of the paper fed from the ADU, and outputs the paper
passage position via the CB to the image processing board
(IPB). During a write operation, the IPB performs mis-centering
adjustment of the paper based on this position data.

Operation
LED1 consists of a horizontal row of LEDs which light when
a paper from the ADU turns PS19 (optics synchronizing)
ON. (Invisible light because of infrared LED.) IPDB is
installed opposite LED1. The paper passage position is
detected by counting the number of LEDs 1 being blocked
off by the passage of the paper.

The upper thermostat (TS1) is used to protect the machine
if the temperature of the upper fusing roller rises abnormally,
and the lower thermostat (TS2) is used to protect the
machine if the temperature of the lower fusing roller rises
abnormally.
The operating temperature of each thermostat is shown
below.
TS1: Approx. 180C
TS2: Approx. 110C
MS4 (fusing set MS4)
The fusing heater remains energized even if the main door
is opened, however if the fusing pressure lever is moved to
the release side MS4 goes OFF and the flow of current to
the fusing heater is cut OFF.

PS24

CB

The upper fusing roller is heated by fusing heater lamp 1 (L2),


and the lower fusing roller by fusing heater lamp 3 (L4). The
CB detects the temperature of the upper fusing roller by means
of the middle fusing temperature sensor (TH1), and controls L2
and L4 via DCPS2.

Operation
Temperature control

Warmup
The CB turns ON the fusing heater lamp circuit in DC
power supply unit 2 (DCPS2) as soon as the main
switch is turned ON, causing L2 and L4 to go ON until
the upper fusing roller reaches the specified
temperature. Upon completion of warmup, L4 goes
ON and OFF in synchronism with L2. If the upper
fusing roller does not reach the specified temperature
within a certain time from the start of warmup, L2, L4,
and M1 (main) remain ON until the completion of
warmup.

Switch is Turned ON

AC (C)

Operation
Current flows through the following parts if the power cord
is plugged into the power outlet, regardless of whether or
not SW1 (main) is ON or OFF.
Circuit breaker (CBR)
If an internal part short circuits, causing a current of more
than 8 A to flow, the breaker goes OFF, cutting off the
power to the machine.
Noise filter (NF)
The noise filter is used to reduce noise entering the machine via the power line, and also external leakage of noise
generated in the machine.
Internal heaters 1, 2 and 3 (HTR1, 2, 3)
These heaters are used to remove humidity from the paper
feed tray and the inside of the LCT.
Weekly timer (optional)) (W.T.)
This timer uses various time control functions to switch the
machine ON and OFF.

Operation
Power supply
When SW1 (main) is turned ON, AC power is supplied to
DC power units 1, 2 and 3 (DCPS1, 2 and 3). As a result,
DCPS1 supplies DC power to the CB, DC driver board
(DCDB) and A/D converter board (ADB). The CB starts
controlling the internal circuits and also starts the following
operations.
Initial operation of operation board (OB)
Warmup of the fusing rollers
Low speed operation of the various fans
DCPS2 supplies 24VDC to RL1, FS-102, and DF-306. RL1
turns ON after a certain period by a signal from the CB, then
supplies AC power to the AC-driven parts.

Method of clearing jam


Remove the jammed
paper from the finisher/

Note: For several of the jam conditions listed in this section, the jam codes for FS-103A equipped machines differ from those
of FS-103 equipped machines. For example, if both finishers are experiencing the same exact jam condition, such as: PS4
(FIN entrance passing) is not turned ON after the copy is conveyed throught the main body paper exit photosensor, code
J72-41 would appear on FS-103A equipped machines however, code J72-21 would appear on FS-103 equipped
machines. This service manual provides FS-103 codes only. For this reason, a table has been included at the end of this
paper jam section which provides cross-reference information to determine the corresponding FS-103 jam codes for
FS-103A equipped machines.

How to Use the Tables


The following items are used in the tables throughout this
section.

Does the power supply meet the requirements?


Is the power supply properly grounded?
Is the machine sharing its power source with another high
current consumption machine that draws large currents
intermittently? (e.g. an elevator, air conditioner, or other
source of electrical consumption)
4. Is the installation environment suitable?
a. Keep out of high temperature, high humidity, direct sun
light and poor ventilation.
b. Make sure that the floor where the machine is installed
is level.
5. Does the cause of a defective image lie in the original
itself?
6. Is the density adjusting control at the proper position?
7. Are the platen glass and ADF conveyance belt clean?
8. Is the correct paper being used for the copy?
9. Are the copying materials at the end of their usable life?
(developer, drum, cleaning blade, etc.)
10. Is there toner in the machine?

Initializing the NVRAM

Adjustments Required after Initialization

This procedure (1) details the steps required to initialize the


7050 NVRAM, (2) specifies the adjustments that MUST be reset
afterward, and (3) presents the steps for storing of the new
adjustment data and restoring the data to previous settings if
required. Initialization is required if the NVRAM becomes
defective and needs to be replaced, if the stored data in memory
becomes corrupted, or in need of a fresh start to reset machine
parameters.
CAUTION: This procedure resets all counter values (to factory
settings) within the 25, 35, 36, and 47 modes. It is important to
follow the procedure as given below to properly reset the
copier.

The following adjustments must be accomplished in the order


given, in particular, adjustments 2 through 6, after the initialization
procedure.

Setting Method
Important note: Assuming that the developer in the machine is
good and does not need replacing, enter mode 47, code 17, and
record the L-detection reference data before proceding with the
initialization, which will reset this value. Reenter this recorded
data after the initialization process is completed. If this step is
not performed, new developer will have to be added and the Ldetection adjustment performed.

IMPORTANT NOTE on DMAX
When initialization is performed, the value at mode 47, code
050, which is the control value for both the developer rotation
speed and D-max, is set to a factory default of 2 ...
(1) This value will not cause any problems if the fusing heater
temperature at the time the unit is turned ON is below 50 C
because a D-max correction will automatically be performed;
however...
(2) if the fusing heater temperature is above 50 C at the time
of power ON, D-max correction MUST be accomplished by
placing the unit in mode 47, code 18, and pressing the START/
PRINT button.
If you are not sure about the machine temperature, perform the
D-max manually.

Failure to accomplish this step when required


will result in extremely light copies.

Adjusting Lead Edge Timing

Paper Feeding Loop Adjustment

The lead edge timing adjustment adjusts the distance from the
front edge of the copy to the starting point where the image
begins. This adjustment occurs in two ways:

Copy type adjustment


When one sheet is copied, and then multiple sheets
are copied, the lead edge timing of the first original is
memorized.
The data memorized indirectly correspondes to the
ON timing of the paper feed restart sensor (PS4) .

Electronic RDH (E-RDH) type adjustment


When multiple sheets are copied, the RDH memorizes
the read data of the first sheet. This data is then used
to process the remaining sheets being copied.
With this adjustment, the lead edge timing is memorized
using the electronic RDH.
The data memorized indirectly correspondes to the
ON timing of the paper feed temporary stop sensor
(PS14)

Adjusts the paper feed loop for each tray.

Lead Edge Timing Adjustment

In this machine, mode 35 is used as a check via internally


generated test charts to verify copy quality concerning the
image processing and writing units. The resulting patterns on
these charts are used to diagnose for the type of adjustments
that must be perfomed.
Note: Do not attempt to use modes that are not described in
particular.

This procedure is for adjusting the lead edge timing when the
copier is selected as a PRINTER while in the super-fine mode.

* When the density is set to 0 (white)
If the test pattern is fogged, determine which of the two systems is abnormal: the scanner system or the
printer system.
* When the density is set to 255 (black)
If the density is light, determine which of the two systems is abnormal: the scanner system or the printer
system.

Gray Scale Pattern


[Check item]
If the test pattern has background or the density is light, determine which is abnormal, the processing system
or the gamma correction. If the copy image is abnormal despite this test pattern being normal, either the
image processing system or the scanner system is abnormal.
Note: each block is written by both lasers.

(Adjust in 35-80 mode, P+6/P+7)
Note: 1. Basically, composition needs to be even.
2. Each column is written by alternating lasers.
3. Blocks should be visible above upper line.
Note: This 35-05 and 35-80 have different chracteristics in low density areas.
Use 35-80 for adjustment.

Linearity Evaluation Pattern


[Check item]
Judge from this test pattern which of the systems is abnormal: the scanner system or the printer system.
Items that can be checked include horizontal magnification, vertical magnification, tilt, and leading edge
timing of the printer system. If the copy image is defective despite no abnormality being visible on the test
pattern, the scanner system is defective.

[Check item]
This test pattern is intended to judge which of the systems is the cause of an abnormality such as white
stripes, black stripes, and shifting of density: the scanner system or the write system is
By using this test pattern, a copy process takes place with the lasers and the charging voltage OFF, and
halftones are output. If the test pattern appears abnormal, the processing system is abnormal.
Note: No charging and no laser beam are used in development.

Read Gate Array Built-in Pattern


[Check item]
This test pattern is intended to judge whether or not the abnormal section is located before the image processing board. If the test pattern is an 8-bit output and is normal, the fault lies in the CCD board before the image
processing board.
Note: If there a problem with the copy and this output is good then the problem is in the CCD.

Copy GA Built-in Pattern


[Check item]
This test pattern is intended to judge whether or not the electronic RDH board is abnormal.
There are two test patterns which correspond to the 8-bit mode in which the electronic RDH is not used, and
the mode in which it is used, respectively. The test pattern checks the state of the electronic RDH board. If
an abnormality is found when an electronic RDH is used and several copies of the test pattern are output,
there is an abnormality in the electronic RDH. In this case, an abnormality in the test pattern excludes any
difference in error dispersion.

Write GA Built-in Pattern


[Check item]
This test pattern is intended to judge whether or not the cause of an abnormality is located in or after the
image processing board. If the test pattern is abnormal, there is an abnormality in or after the image processing board (PWM function or after).

Electronic RDH GA Built-in Pattern


[Check item]
This test pattern is intended to determine if the electronic RDH board or image processing board is abnormal
in the case where the copy image is abnormal despite the 35-36 mode pattern being normal.
If the 35-36 mode pattern is normal but the test pattern is abnormal, there is an abnormality in either the
electronic RDH or the image processing board.
