1.2 Ink Stains 1.2.1 Ink path


Do not touch the ink path during repairs or maintenance to avoid getting ink stains on the printer, work table, hands, and clothing. The ink flow path consists of the BJ cartridge nozzles, head cap, head wiper, maintenance jet receiving section, waste ink tube, and waste ink absorber. The ink flow path of the color BJ cartridges consists of ink outlets and joint pipes. Do not touch the ink flow path also, to avoid ink stains. When the purge unit is removed, waste ink could spill out from the units waste ink flow path. When repairing or replacing this unit, stop up the waste ink flow path with a paper towel to prevent the ink from spilling out.

Caution!
Although the ink is non-toxic, it contains organic solvents. BC-23: Diethylenglycol 111-46-5, glycerin 56-81-5 BC-21e: Isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0, glycerin 56-81-5 BC-22e Photo: Isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0, glycerin 56-81-5, ethylenglycol 107-21-1 BC-20 (reference): Isopropyl alcohol 67-63-0, glycerin 56-81-5, ethylenglycol107-21-1 Never get ink in your eyes and mouth. If any ink should get into your eyes, wash them out with plenty of water and consult a doctor. If a large quantity of ink is swallowed accidentally, consult a doctor immediately. Provide the doctor with the information printed on the BJ cartridge package or label. Since the ink contains dyes, any ink stain on clothing, etc. shall be permanent.

1.3 BJ Cartridge Heat-Up


Do not touch the aluminum plate of the BJ cartridge. This aluminum plate heats up during printing. It will become very hot during prolonged and continuous printing sessions or when printing is attempted even after the cartridge has run out of ink.

Aluminum Plate

Caution! High Temperature!


Figure 1-5 BJ Cartridge Aluminum Plate
This printer is provided with a protective mechanism for the overheating of the BJ cartridge. A head temperature (diode) sensor in the BJ cartridge detects the temperature levels for activating the protection mechanism. To prevent the user from touching the hot aluminum plate of the head when the head temperature becomes high, the carriage will not move to the cartridge replacement position even when the user opens the front cover. During this time, the printer beeps 5 times and the indicator lights in orange. If this happens, wait for a while and then either press the RESUME button or close the front cover once and open it again. If the head temperature increases further, printing will be stopped due to the head temperature error.

NOTE

REF.

When the printer stops printing due to a head temperature error, follow the required troubleshooting procedure in Part 5: 6, TROUBLESHOOTING (page 5-12).

2. MACHINE PRECAUTIONS
2.1 Handling BJ Cartridges 2.1.1 Unpacking the BJ cartridge
Do not unpack the BJ cartridge until it is ready to be used. Before installing the BJ cartridge in the printer, remove the protective head caps from the nozzles and peel off the protective tape as shown in the figure below. Never re-use the removed protective head caps and protective tape. This could cause printing troubles.

Figure 1-6 Removing the Head Cap and Protective Tape 2.1.2 Preventing clogged nozzles
Never touch the nozzles of the BJ cartridge or wipe them with tissue paper. Any foreign substance could easily clog the nozzles. Also, handle the inner joint pipe of the color BJ cartridge carefully to avoid clogging it and thus blocking the ink feed. To prevent clogging the nozzles with foreign substances and dried-out ink, install the BJ cartridge in the printer after the head cap and protective tape are removed (so that the printer caps the nozzles). When storing the BJ cartridge, make sure the nozzles of the cartridge are capped or store the cartridge in the BJ cartridge container. Foreign substances on the nozzles or dried up ink will result in poor ink suction. Never disassemble or assemble the BJ cartridge and do not wash it.

NOTE

When the nozzles are clogged, white streaks will appear across the printed areas periodically. If this problem persists even after cleaning, replace the BJ cartridge with a new one.

Figure 1-7 BJ Cartridge 2.1.3 Power on/off


When the printer is turned off with the POWER button, the printer automatically caps the nozzles of the BJ cartridge for their protection and to prevent ink leakage. If the AC power cord of the AC adapter is unplugged unintentionally and the printer is turned off without pressing the POWER button, the nozzles may not be capped. In such cases, plug in the AC power cord of the AC adapter, turn on the power of the printer, and then press the POWER button to turn it off again.

CAUTION

If the nozzles are not capped properly, the ink may either dry out and clog the nozzles or leak out.

2.1.4 When not using the printer


Leave the BJ cartridge in the printer or store it in the BJ cartridge container when the printer is not in use. Also keep the BJ cartridge installed in the printer or store it in the BJ cartridge container while carrying, transporting, or storing the printer. If the BJ cartridge is removed from the printer and left lying about, printing defects may occur when it is used again due to clogging of nozzles and dried-out ink. If the BJ cartridge is removed to relocate the printer, ink could leak out from the cap section.

CAUTION

2.1.5 Ink electroconductivity


The ink in the BJ cartridge is electroconductive. If the ink leaks into the printers mechanical parts, use a paper towel to wipe off completely. If the ink leaks into the printers electrical parts, use a tissue paper to wipe off completely. If ink is spilled under the IC chips on the printed circuit board (PCB) and is difficult to clean, replace the PCB. Do not connect the AC power cord when ink has leaked into the electrical parts. This could damage the circuitry.

CAUTION

2.3 Printer Precautions 2.3.1 Preventing deformation of the spur tip


Do not touch the tips of the spurs. The spurs transfer and eject the paper after printing. They have a delicate structure and could be easily deformed. Since the tip of the spurs have a very small contact surface with the paper, the ink adhering to the spurs is minimal. The spur cleaner wipes off the adhered ink from the spurs to prevent smudges on the paper. If the spurs are touched and the tip of the spurs become deformed, the contact surface with the paper might increase, causing more ink to adhere to each spur. As a result, should the spur cleaner fail to wipe the ink from the spurs completely, a dotted-line smear may be printed on the paper or a trace may be produced. If this happens, replace the spur unit with a new one.

2.3.3 Ink leakage prevention

Part 1: Safety and Precautions

Transport, pack, or store the printer with the BJ cartridge installed in the printer. Otherwise, the ink in the purge unit could flow backward and spill out inside the printer. Before packing the printer, make sure the carriage is at the capping position (the right end of the carriage shaft). The nozzles of the BJ cartridge are automatically capped when the printer is turned off by pressing the POWER button. Do not unplug the AC power cord of the AC adapter before turning off the printer with the POWER button. Otherwise, the printer will be stopped without capping the nozzles, which could cause ink leaks and ink bonding. In case this happens, plug in the AC power cord, turn on the printer by pressing the POWER button, turn it off by pressing the POWER button, and then unplug the AC power cord again.

3. MAINTENANCE SERVICE PRECAUTIONS


3.1 EEPROM Data Precautions
This printer keeps track of various function settings, the total number of sheets printed, and the total waste ink amount. Such information is stored in the EEPROM on the logic board. Heed the following precautions during maintenance servicing. 1) Before servicing Check the data stored in the printer with a test print (only for the total number of sheets printed) and a service information print in the Service Mode. The total number of sheets printed can provide an idea of how much the printer has been used. 2) When the logic board (EEPROM) is replaced or if the memory data was unintentionally reset Check the waste ink absorbers, replace them if necessary, and set the total waste ink amount counter according to instructions in Part 5: 4.3, Logic Board and Waste Ink Absorber Replacement Cautions (page 5-6). The waste ink counter total can be set to 0% (clearing the data), 25%, 50%, and 75%. If this task is neglected, a waste ink full error may not occur even when the waste ink amount exceeds the full capacity and waste ink may start leaking, depending on the waste ink amount already absorbed by the waste ink absorbers. The memory data in the replacement logic board (EEPROM) is not defined. After replacing the logic board (EEPROM), reset the EEPROM. Check the above waste ink absorbers and set the total waste ink amount counter. After resetting the EEPROM, install the black BJ cartridge and calibrate the auto-alignment sensor. If the calibration is not performed, an EEPROM error will occur when the printer is turned on. 3) After waste ink absorber replacement If the waste ink absorbers are replaced when the waste ink full error or another error occurs, reset the total waste ink amount counter of the EEPROM.

CAUTION

Once the memory data of EEPROM is reset, the data cannot be checked by a test print in the Service Mode. To check the stored data, be sure to execute a test print in the Service Mode before resetting the EEPROM. When the EEPROM is reset, all data including the various settings, total number of sheets printed, and total waste ink amount are reset. The total number of sheets printed cannot be incremented using the control panel.

Part 1: Safety and Precautions

REF.

This printer keeps track of the estimated waste ink amount based on the condition of printer usage immediately after the printer is started. To prevent ink leakage due to the waste ink absorption capacity being exceeded, the printer stops printing and displays an error when the waste ink amount nears the full waste ink absorption capacity. The printer operation can be restarted by pressing the RESUME button. If the printer is used in this condition, the waste ink full error is displayed. See Part 3: 3.4 Service Mode (page 3-18) for information about checking the memory data using a test print or the Service Mode and for resetting procedure. If the printer operation stops due to waste ink full or other errors, follow the required troubleshooting procedure in Part 5: 6, TROUBLESHOOTING (page 5-12).

3.2 Static Electricity Precautions


Static electricity produced by friction of clothing could damage the electrical parts or change their electrical characteristics. Before disassembling the printer to perform any servicing, touch a metallic object that is properly grounded to discharge any built-up static electricity. For example, a wrist strap can be used to discharge built-up static electricity. Before discharging built-up static electricity, do not touch electrical parts such as the logic board and contacts to the BJ cartridge of the carriage ribbon cable while the carriage ribbon cable is connected to the logic board (see Figure 1-11).

1. PRODUCT OUTLINE
1.1 Product Outline
This desktop color printer achieves high-speed printing by means of a dual cartridge system. It also realizes maximum 1440 (vertical) x 720 (horizontal) dpi high-resolution printing by using the printer driver to perform the main data processing. Moreover, this printer achieves high image printing by adopting a drop modulation technology in the color BJ cartridge and photo BJ cartridge. High-density monochrome printing is offered with a black BJ cartridge that adopts a newly developed ink. The reproduction of color graduations has been improved through the combined use of these cartridges. In addition, the printing environment is further expanded by the possibilities of printing on up to A3-size paper and banner (long paper) printing by manual feeding. This is a high-performance standard machine.

1.3 BJ Cartridge 1.3.1 Color BJ cartridge (BC-21e)

Part 2: Product Specifications

The color BJ cartridge BC-21e for color printing is disposable. The color BJ cartridge has a printhead with 136 nozzles and a replaceable ink cartridge (two types, black and color). When the ink runs out or more than 6 months have elapsed since the cartridge was removed from the package, or if the print quality does not improve even after cleaning the head five times or more, replace the ink cartridge with a new one. Also, if the print quality does not improve following replacement of the ink cartridge and after cleaning the head five times or more, replace the BJ cartridge. Since the three color inks are integrated, the entire color ink cartridge must be replaced when one color ink runs out. The drop modulation technology minimizes print graininess by using small-size dots for printing in low density areas. On the other hand, it maintains the printing speed and achieves high-quality printing by using large-size dots effectively in high density areas. A total of 136 head nozzles are provided in a row: 24 nozzles for yellow ink, 24 nozzles for magenta ink, 24 nozzles for cyan ink, and 64 nozzles for black ink. The printer can print out approximately 225 sheets with black ink (1500-character standard text pattern in the Standard mode) and approximately 100 sheets with color ink (7.5% duty per color pattern in the Standard mode).

The BC-23, BC-21e, and BC-20 (reference) cartridges can be installed independently on the left side of the carriage for printing. If the right BJ cartridge ink run-out is detected when Auto Head Alignment is executed from the printer driver, printing is performed using the left BJ cartridge. When printing on A3-size paper, only the left BJ cartridge is used for printing.

1.5 BJ Cartridge Container


The BJ cartridge container is used for storing the BJ cartridge when it is removed from the printer. When you store a BJ cartridge in the container, be sure to close the cover tightly. A single BJ cartridge container can store either of the following cartridges: BJ cartridge (BC-23) or black BJ cartridge (BC-20 [reference]), color BJ cartridge (BC-21e), or photo BJ cartridge (BC-22e Photo).

8) Input/output signals Compatible Mode STROBE [Input] This signal is used to read Data1 to Data8. This signal becomes valid after the BUSY signal goes from HIGH to LOW and the printer outputs an ACKNLG signal. This signal is normally HIGH and the printer receives data after the signal goes LOW. DATA1 to 8 [Input] The printer receives data on the STROBE signal. The status of each bit of this signal must be maintained for at least 280 ns from the leading edge of the STROBE signal. ACKNLG [Output] This signal is a response signal to the STROBE signal. The host computer cannot output the next STROBE signal until this signal is output. When the power is turned on or when the BUSY goes from HIGH to LOW for the input of the INIT signal, this signal is sent regardless of the STROBE signal. BUSY [Output] When this signal is HIGH, the printer is BUSY; when it is LOW, the printer is READY. This signal goes from LOW to HIGH when data is received or when an error occurs (paper-out, paper jam). P.E. [Output] If the printer is unable to feed paper even when the feeding operation is executed by the printer, this signal goes from LOW to HIGH. At this time, the BUSY signal goes HIGH and the SELECT and ERROR signals go LOW. The signal goes LOW when the paper is set and fed. At this time, the ERROR and SELECT signals go from LOW to HIGH. SELECT [Output] When the printer is READY, this signal goes HIGH. This signal goes LOW when an error occurs (paper-out, paper jam). AUTO FEED XT [Input] When this signal is LOW, the automatic line feed mode (Carriage Return and Line Feed) is effective. The printer can read this signal only when the printer is turned on or is initialized by the INIT signal. INIT [Input] When this signal goes LOW, the printer is put on BUSY. The printer is reset when the signal goes from LOW to HIGH. The pulse width of this signal must be at least 50 s at the printer side. ERROR [Output] This signal goes LOW when the printer detects an error and thus notifies the host computer that the printer is put in the error status (paper-out, paper jam). SELECT IN [Input] When this signal is HIGH, the printer is put in the online status. Nibble Mode Host Clk [Input] STROBE signal to read Data 1 to Data 8. Negotiation phase: Trigger signal to send the compatible protocol to the printer. Data 1 to Data 8 [Input] The printer receives data on the Host Clk signal. The state of each bit of this signal must be maintained for at least 0.5 s from the leading edge of the Host Clk signal.

BJC-5000

Part 2: Product Specifications

Ptr Clk [Output] Reverse data transmission phase: The printer requests the host computer to read the data after the Ptr Clk signal goes HIGH to LOW. After reading the data, the host computer notifies the printer of completion of data receiving by making the Host Busy signal go LOW to HIGH. Ptr Busy [Output] Reverse data transmission phase: Used for bit 3 and bit 7 of the transmission data. Ack Data Req [Output] Reverse data transmission phase: Used for bit 2 and bit 6 of the transmission data. Negotiation phase: Used for the trigger signal to inform the host computer of the printer conditions (whether it supports the nibble mode or not, whether the reverse transmission data is present or not, etc.). Xflag [Output] Reverse data transmission phase: Used for bit 1 and bit 5 of the transmission data. Negotiation phase: Informs the host computer whether the printer supports the nibble mode or not. Indicates that the printer supports nibble mode when this signal is LOW, synchronizing with the leading edge of the Ack Data Req signal. Host Busy [Input] Reverse data transmission phase: Indicates that the host computer is already receiving data from the printer when this signal is LOW. After that, when the Ptr Clk signal in the received data goes HIGH to LOW, this signal synchronizes with the Ptr Clk signal and goes to HIGH. Reverse standby phase: This signal goes LOW to HIGH after the Ptr Clk signal goes HIGH to LOW, and enters the reverse data transmission phase again. INIT [Input] When this signal goes HIGH to LOW, the printer is put in the BUSY status and reset after INIT goes LOW to HIGH. This signal is normally HIGH and the pulse width must be at least 0.5 s at the printer side. DataAvail [Output] Reverse data transmission phase: Used for bit 0 and bit 4 of the transmission data. Negotiation phase: Informs the host computer whether there is reverse transmission data or not. Synchronizes with the falling edge of the LOW pulse of the Ack Data Req signal which is the timing indicating that there is reverse transmission data. 1284 Active [Input] This signal confirms whether the printer is a 1284-compatible device when this signal is HIGH and the Host Busy signal is LOW.

ECP Mode Host Clk [Input] This signal handshakes with the PeriphAck (BUSY) signal when data is transferred from the host computer to the printer. When this signal goes HIGH to LOW, it means that the data is output on the data buses (Data 1 to Data 8). The signal goes LOW to HIGH in response to the leading edge of the PeriphAck (BUSY) signal. Reverse data transmission phase: This signal remains HIGH. Data 1 to Data 8 [Input/Output] This signal is used as an input signal when data is transferred from the host computer to the printer. Reverse data transmission phase: This signal is used as an output signal and the printer outputs data to the host computer using these data buses. Periph Clk [Output] This signal remains HIGH when data is transferred from the host computer to the printer. Reverse data transmission phase: This signal goes HIGH to LOW to indicate that data is output to the host computer. The signal goes LOW to HIGH in response to the leading edge of HIGH pulse of the HostAck (AUTO FEED XT) signal of the host computer. Periph Ack [Output] This signal goes HIGH to LOW when the printer is ready to receive data from the host computer while transferring the data from the host computer to the printer. It goes LOW to HIGH when the printer receives data from the host computer. Reverse data transmission phase: Indicates whether the data sent from the printer to the data bus is a command or data. (LOW: Command, HIGH: Data) Ack Reverse [Output] This signal remains HIGH when data is transferred from the host computer to the printer. Reverse data transmission phase: This signal remains LOW. The Reverse Req (INIT) signal is a switching request from the host computer which goes HIGH to LOW to request a switch from the forward data transmission phase to the reverse data transmission phase. In response to the falling edge of the Reverse Req signal, Ack Reverse signal goes HIGH to LOW to indicate that the switching request has been accepted. When the switching from the reverse data transmission phase to the forward data transmission phase takes place, Ack Reverse signal goes LOW to HIGH to indicate that the switching request has been accepted, in response to the leading edge of the Reverse Req (INIT) signal which is a switching request from the host computer. X flag [Output] This signal remains HIGH in the ECP mode. Host Ack [Input] This signal goes from LOW to HIGH when data is transferred from the host computer to the printer. Reverse data transmission phase: This signal handshakes with the Periph Clk (ACKNLG) signal. When the host computer is ready to receive data from the printer, this signal goes HIGH to LOW. After the data is received, the signal goes LOW to HIGH.

1.3.5 Replacing the ink cartridge

Part 3: Operating Instructions

When a color BJ cartridge is used, the ink cartridge must be replaced. Use the following procedure to replace the ink cartridge. 1) When to replace the ink cartridge When the ink runs out or more than 6 months have elapsed since the cartridge was removed from the package, or if the print quality does not improve even after cleaning the head five times or more, replace the ink cartridge with a new one. Since the three color inks are integrated, the entire color ink cartridge must be replaced when one color ink runs out. If the print quality does not improve following replacement of the ink cartridge and after cleaning the head five times or more, replace the color BJ cartridge. 2) Removing an ink cartridge Open the front cover to move the carriage to the cartridge replacement position. Flip up the cartridge lock lever as described in 1.3.4-3), Replacing the BJ cartridge (page 36). Then, pull out the upper portion of the ink cartridge to be replaced to remove it as shown in the figure below. There will be ink on and around the ink outlets of the ink cartridge. Remove the ink cartridge carefully to avoid smears on hand and machine.

Figure 3-8 Removing the Ink Cartridge


3) Installing an ink cartridge Take out the new ink cartridge (option) from its package and remove the cap covering the ink outlets as shown in the figure below.

1.4 Turning the Printer On/Off 1.4.1 Turning the printer on

Part 3: Operating Instructions

With the printer plugged in to a power source, press the POWER button to turn on the printer. When the printer turns on, it starts the initializing operation. If a BJ cartridge is not installed, the indicator blinks in green to indicate that the printer is ready to have the BJ cartridge installed and the carriage will move to the cartridge replacement position. If a BJ cartridge is already installed, the indicator will light in green to indicate that the printer is in standby status. When the printer is turned on after more than 72 hours have passed since the last head cleaning (the first head cleaning is performed 24 hours after a color BJ cartridge is installed), it automatically carries out head cleaning. The indicator blinks in green while head cleaning is performed.

1.4.2 Turning the printer off


Press the POWER button to turn off the printer. When the printer is turned off, it executes a power-off sequence operation to cap the nozzles of the BJ cartridge for their protection and to prevent ink leakage. The indicator blinks in green to indicate that the power-off sequence is under progress. When the power-off sequence is complete, the indicator goes out. Make sure the indicator is off first before unplugging the AC power cord. Never turn off the printer by unplugging the AC power cord before pressing the POWER button. This will cause the printer to turn off before it can cap the BJ cartridge and as a result the ink will leak out or dry out and clog the nozzles.

CAUTION

If the AC power cord has been unplugged to turn off the printer, plug in the AC power cord, press the POWER button to turn on the printer, and then turn it off again. If the POWER button is pressed while the head is being cleaned, the indicator continues blinking in green until the head cleaning is completed. After cleaning is completed, the BJ cartridge is capped and the printer turns off. Any error occurring after the power-off sequence starts is ignored and the printer is turned off.

Part 3: Operating Instructions

When printing on banner paper, after cutting the paper to the appropriate length (2-6 sheets) set the paper to move in a direct path though the printer using the manual feed slot on the printer rear side, not the ASF. Each top margin for banner printing is set to 0 mm at the start of printing. To avoid printing on the platen, however, printing will start 3 mm from the initial top margin. Set an extra sheet at the end in case the bottom edge is not printed on the last page. Banner printing uses a large quantity of ink. To avoid ink run out in the middle of printing, it is recommended to use a new ink cartridge right from the start of banner printing.

CAUTION

Do not execute EEPROM all clear function unnecessarily. The EEPROM stores data such as the various settings, total number of pages passed, number of times the BJ cartridge was replaced, and total waste ink amount. Once the EEPROM is cleared, all the data will be lost and cannot be reset excepting the waste ink counter. Execute the EEPROM all clear function only when it is necessary and you are absolutely sure. After executing the EEPROM all clear function, always execute the Auto alignment sensor calibration function. Unless you execute this function, an EEPROM error will occur when the printer is turned on. Also, after executing the EEPROM all clear function, check the waste ink amount and either replace the waste ink absorber or set the waste ink counter to 25%, 50%, or 75%, depending on the condition. Check the ink penetration rate for the entire waste ink absorber as a guideline to determine the waste ink counter setting value.

1.3 Print Signal Flow 1.3.1 Data between host computer and printer

Part 4: Technical Reference

Conventionally, control functions were provided by a printer's firmware. For this printer, however, these control functions are processed by the printer driver on the computer. Conventional printers receive the image data in the raster direction (horizontal direction data) which is created on the printer driver. The printer converts the raster direction image data it receives into column data (vertical direction data) and then executes printing. The printer driver on the host computer handles all processes until column data creation and their the printer receives this column data and prints it. Thus, high speed printing is realized because the printer does not need to convert the raster data into column data before printing.

1.3.2 Print Signal Flow in the Printer


The print signal flow from when the printer receives the print data to when printing is executed is described below. a) The printing information (column data matching with the nozzle arrangement of the built-in printhead) including control signals output by the host computer is loaded through the parallel interface into the MPU & printer controller on the logic board. The printing information is separated into control commands and print data based on the data stored in the control ROM. The control commands are processed in the MPU & printer controller. The print data is stored in the DRAM print buffer. b) The MPU & printer controller outputs the print data to the bubble jet head in the form of print signals. In the bubble jet head, the print data is converted from serial signals to parallel print data for each printed line. Printing is performed as the MPU & printer controller is controlled by the print control signals. c) The MPU & printer controller monitors the status of the bubble jet head and printer and uses the control ROM and motor drivers to manage all printing driver controls.

1.4 Print Drive


To discharge ink from the head for printing, the printer outputs control signals from the printer controller to the BJ head. The control signals consists of the drive control signal for discharging ink from the heads nozzles and the temperature control signal for adjusting the heads temperature so that the ink discharge is uniform. To achieve best printing results, both these control signals are optimized by the MPU & printer controller and sent from the carriage ribbon cables signal contacts to the BJ head. The drive frequency varies depending on the printing mode and installed BJ cartridge.

1.4.1 Print drive control


a) Black BJ cartridge drive control The black BJ cartridge drive control is performed by dividing the heads 128 nozzles into 8 blocks (16 nozzles per block). These blocks are further divided into odd and even blocks (8 nozzles per odd/even block). Ink is simultaneously discharged either from all odd block nozzles or from all even block nozzles. Control signals for the odd block nozzles are block enable signals 1, 2, and 3 (BENB 1, 2, 3). Control signals for the even block nozzles are the even/odd enable signals (Even/Odd ENB). Heat enable 0 and 1 (HENB 0, 1), which are the heater drive control signals for discharging the ink, are comprised of a pre-pulse and main pulse. To achieve optimum ink discharge constantly, internal conditions such as the heads rank, printer temperature, and head temperature are monitored and the heater drive pulse width is varied before the pulse is output. Furthermore, the print drive signal from the printer controller is transferred to the shift resistor in the BJ head according to the HLATCH timing. When the print drive signal (HDATA) is latched and the print control and heater drive control signals are output together, the heater for the corresponding nozzles is driven and ink is discharged.

b) Color BJ cartridge (multi-drop) drive control The printhead of the multi-drop type color BJ cartridge has 136 nozzles and each nozzle has two heater boards at the front and back. The multi-drop drive is performed by appropriately using these front and back heaters. The sequence of ink discharge is as follows. The 136 nozzles in the head are divided into 8 blocks (16 nozzles per block) and each block is separated into two functional units (8 nozzles per unit). Ink is sequentially discharged from each unit. The nozzles for discharging ink are selected by block enable signals (BENB 1, 2, 3) and

even/odd enable signals (Even/Odd ENB). The heat enable signals (HENB 0, 1, 2, 3) are the heat drive control signals for the heater boards. In the drop modulation mode, the HENB0 signals drive the heater at the back of the black nozzles; the HENB1 signals drive the heater in the front of the black nozzles; the HENB2 signals drive the heater in the front of the color nozzles; and the HENB3 signals drive the heater at the back of the color nozzles. The heat enable signals are comprised of a pre-pulse and main pulse. To achieve optimum ink discharge constantly, internal conditions such as the heads rank, printer temperature, and head temperature are monitored and the heater drive pulse width is varied before the pulse is output.

2. FIRMWARE
2.1 Interface
This printer supports the compatible mode, nibble mode, and ECP mode which are compliant with the bidirectional Centronics interface standard (IEEE P1284). The compatible mode is the same as the conventional Centronics interface-compliant protocol. When the printer operates as a printer, data is transferred in the compatible mode or ECP mode. The nibble mode is used for transferring status data such as the device ID and printer status to the host computer during printer operation. To use the nibble mode or ECP mode, the setting in the host computer must either be the nibble mode or ECP mode.

2.1.1 Compatible mode


The parallel interface for the compatible mode transfers data in 8-bit blocks. Data is transferred with the STROBE, BUSY, and ACKNLG handshake signals. When the printer receives the data (Data 1 to 8) and STROBE signal from the host computer, the printer controller which is controlling the parallel interface outputs the BUSY signal and latches the data at the falling edge of the STROBE signal. After the BUSY signal is output, the printer controller loads the latched data from the DRAM bus into the receive buffer of the DRAM. After the printer controller finishes writing data in the receive buffer of the DRAM, it outputs the ACKNLG signal and makes the BUSY signal LOW. Then, it waits for the next data input from the host computer.

2.1.2 Nibble mode


In the nibble mode, the printer transfers data twice to the host computer in 4-bit blocks. The data is transferred with the PtrClk signal and HostBusy signal handshakes. After the printer confirms the falling edge of the HostBusy signal, it prepares the 8-bit data, makes the PtrClk signal go from HIGH to LOW, and outputs the lower 4 bits on the control signal line. After the PtrClk signal goes from HIGH to LOW, the host computer loads the data and makes the HostBusy signal go from LOW to HIGH. After the printer confirms the falling edge of the HostBusy signal for the second time, it outputs the higher 4 bits on the control signal line. If there is no data to be sent to the host computer after the HostBusy signal goes from LOW to HIGH, the printer makes the DataAvail signal go from LOW to HIGH and is put on standby status for the next data transfer. (The falling edge indicates a LOW and the rising edge indicates a HIGH.)

2.1.3 ECP mode

Part 4: Technical Reference

In the ECP mode, the printer transfers 8-bit data all at once and therefore it can send and receive data in high speed. This mode is suitable for sending and receiving large volumes of data. When the AckReverse signal goes from HIGH to LOW in response the ReverseReq signal going from HIGH to LOW, the data bus direction changes from forward data transfer (which sends data from host computer to printer) to reverse data transfer (which sends data from printer to host computer). During the reverse data transfer phase, the printer makes HostAck go from HIGH to LOW when it detects the rising edge of PeriphClk. When the host computer is able to receive data from the printer, HostAck goes from HIGH to LOW; and when it receives data, HostAck goes from LOW to HIGH. (The falling edge indicates a LOW and the rising edge indicates a HIGH.)

2.2 Printing System

Part 4: Technical Reference

Control functions are provided by conventional printers. In this printer, however, these control functions are mostly processed by the printer driver of the host computer. With conventional printers, image data in the raster direction (horizontal direction data) is created on the printer driver and the printer side receives this data. Consequently, the image data in raster direction received by the printer is converted into column data (vertical direction data) by the printer and the printing is executed. The printer driver on the host computer handle all processes until the creation of column data matching the printhead installed in the printer. Then, the printer receives this column data and prints it. (The printer reads the printhead ID and automatically notifies the host computer of the printhead configuration.) Thus, this printer achieves high speed printing because it does not need to convert raster data into column data and can print the data as it is.

2.3 Printing Modes 2.3.1 Printing mode


This printer varies the printing method, such as carriage movement and bubble jet head driving frequency, in accordance with the cartridge installed, the selected medium, the selected printing mode, the resolution, and the print data in order to achieve high-quality printing without any bleeding or shifting in the printout. When color printing is performed using a single pass, the different colors printed at the same time overlap, often causing the colors to run. By printing with two or more delayed passes, there is less color bleeding because the color printed immediately before is relatively stable by the time the next color is printed over it. When print data is processed internally by the printer, the data is recognized and the number of ink nozzles to be used by the black ink is automatically changed. Characters are printed by taking preventive measures for bleeding and white mist which are generated at the borders because the characteristics of the color and black inks differ. This process is carried out as follows: During internal processing by the printer, the borders where the color and black inks meet are identified. Cyan and black ink are mixed in the printed black portion to suit the distance and density of the black and color dots.

2.3.2 Photo print mode


The photo print mode can be used to obtain a print quality with rich gradation that reduces granularity by printing several times on the same dot using the Photo BJ cartridge which contains a light density ink. The printer driver divides the pixel data into 4 values (not printed, print 1 dot, print 2 dots, and print 3 dots) enabling each pixel to be printed using up to 4 gradations. When the color cartridge and photo auto cartridge are installed, high-quality print is achieved by using 7 types of inks (cyan, magenta, yellow, black, photo cyan, photo magenta and photo black). In addition, an improved gray color reproduction has been provided by the use of 2 types of black inks.

2.3.3 Multi-drop print mode


The color cartridge uses drop modulation technology to print large and small dots efficiently so that the granularity of low density portions can be reduced. The photo cartridge of this machine prints small dots only.

2.4 Cartridge Automatic Adjustment Function

Part 4: Technical Reference

When the installed printhead is changed, the printer notifies the printer driver of the new printhead configuration. The printer driver displays a pop-up message which advises a user to perform the head alignment before starting the printing. When the maintenance tab on the driver Align Printheads is selected, the printer prints the automatic head alignment pattern and corrects the print position automatically. While printing the automatic head alignment pattern, the printer detects run-out of ink, displacements of the left and right cartridges which could occur due to the dual cartridge system, and density errors using the auto-alignment sensor on the carriage. The printer sends the detected information to the printer driver of the host computer. The printer driver performs an automatic adjustment of the head nozzle alignment and automatic density correction of the left and right heads based on the information sent from the printer and controls the printing accordingly. When ink runs out, the message is displayed on the printer driver.

2.4.1 Automatic correction of head nozzle alignment


The printer driver receives and interprets the information about the correlation between the print data and head nozzle. With this information, head characteristics can be corrected by the printer driver. The following adjustments are performed. a) Alignment of vertical and horizontal directions When printing is performed with dual cartridges, the auto-alignment sensor detects the displacement of the dot alignment in the vertical and horizontal directions of both heads, and the printer driver corrects it. b) Alignment of printing direction When bi-directional printing is performed, the print position when the head prints in the forward direction tends to differ from the print position when the head prints in the backward direction. This displacement could result in a poor print image. The printer driver corrects the print position error in the horizontal direction which is detected by the auto-alignment sensor so that high quality can be maintained, even during high-speed bi-directional printing.

2.4.2 Automatic density correction of left/right cartridge


When the left and right cartridges are the same, if the auto-alignment sensor of the printer driver detects a difference in the density during a printing operation between the left and right cartridges, the printer driver automatically corrects the density based on the detection result. If the ink of the right printhead has run out, the printer prints using only the left printhead.

4-13

Part 4: Technical Reference

BJC-5000

2.5 Data Separation Function


The data separation function is available only when printing is performed using the dual cartridge system where 2 cartridges are installed on the carriage and the same cartridge is installed in both heads. This function determines whether the left or right head is used for printing each pixel. This function efficiently divides the area printed by the left and right cartridges, and achieves the proper gradation by printing over several times at the borders between both cartridges where print quality tends to vary.

2.6 Ink Smear Control


Immediately after a printed sheet is ejected from the printer, the ink dries in a natural state on the paper output tray. If the next printed sheet is ejected before the ink dries properly, the ink may be smeared. To prevent ink smears, a wait period is applied during printing so that the ejection of every sheet is delayed to allow more time for the ink on the preceding sheet to dry. When a black BJ cartridge (whose printing speed is faster) is used and high duty printing is performed, the printer automatically determines the high duty printing position and the time elapsed from the start of printing. The ink smear control is not performed when a color BJ cartridge is used for printing.

2.7 Head Overheating Protection Control


If the ink runs out and the printing operation is continued, the bubble jet head can become extremely hot. If the head temperature sensor in the bubble jet head detects a temperature higher than the designated temperature limit, head overheating control is executed. Protection level 1: This level prevents the user from touching the aluminum plate of the bubble jet head when the bubble jet head is replaced. This protection function does not allow cartridge replacement for a set period of time. Protection level 2: If a still higher temperature is detected, the carriage is returned to the home position every time one line is printed and the printer is put in standby state for 3.5 seconds to control the temperature increase. This control continues for 20 seconds or more. Protection level 3: If the temperature continues to increase, a head temperature error occurs. This stops the printing operation.

2.8 Auto Power-Off


This printer provides an auto power-off function which automatically turns off the printer when print signals are not sent from the host computer for over a preset idle period. These settings can be made from the printer driver. When the auto power-off function is set to enable, the printer is turned off if print data is not sent from the host computer for over a preset idle period. The idle period settings available are 10, 30, and 60 minutes.

1) BJ cartridge A user replaces and installs the BJ cartridges as required. The black and photo BJ cartridges are integrated and use the same head. The color BJ cartridge has separate replaceable ink cartridges. 2) Purge section The purge section helps maintain high-quality printing by capping and wiping the face of the BJ cartridge. The absorption function recovers the conditions that allow the ink in the nozzles to be discharged easily. The purge section consists of the purge unit and wiper unit. The purge unit is driven by the paper feed motor. It absorbs the ink of the BJ cartridge and removes the ink in the cap. When the printer is not in use, the purge unit caps the nozzles of the BJ cartridge for protection. The wiper unit provides a wiping function to wipe the head face and the maintenance jet receiving function. 3) Carriage The carriage is moved horizontally back and forth across the paper by the carriage belt driven by the carriage motor. The print signals from the logic board are transmitted to two BJ cartridges installed on the carriage via the carriage cable. The carriage performs switching control of the paper feed motor (control of the stay units slide lock lever) to switch the motors drive between the paper feed/purge unit and the sheet feeder.

3.2 BJ Cartridge 3.2.1 Black BJ cartridge structure

Part 4: Technical Reference

The black BJ cartridge has a 128-nozzle printhead. The printhead and ink cartridge are assembled in a single cartridge body. 1) Cartridge cover A plastic cover is attached to the cartridge body to prevent ink from leaking inside the cartridge. As the ink is consumed, the pressure inside the cartridge decreases relative to the atmospheric pressure. This makes it harder for the ink to be supplied to the head. To prevent this, the cartridge cover is provided with a pressure adjusting hole for maintaining constant pressure inside the cartridge body. 2) Ink sponge The sponge is soaked with black ink.

3.2.2 Color BJ cartridge structure


The color BJ cartridge is attached to a printhead with 136 nozzles (including 24 nozzles each for yellow, magenta, and cyan inks and 64 nozzles for black ink). The ink cartridge (one cartridge for black, and one cartridge for yellow, magenta, and cyan inks) is replaceable by separating it from the printhead. 1) Pressure adjusting plate As the ink is consumed, the pressure inside the cartridge decreases relative to the atmospheric pressure. This makes it more difficult for the ink to be supplied to the head. To prevent this, the BJ cartridge provides an air hole for maintaining constant pressure inside the cartridge body. 2) Ink sponge Each ink color (black, cyan, yellow, magenta) is soaked in its own separate sponge. The cyan, yellow, and magenta sponges are compressed and stored in the same color ink cartridge body. 3) Ink suppliers The ink suppliers supply ink from the ink sponges to the joint sections of the cartridge at a constant pressure. 4) Ink cartridge body The plastic case connects the ink sponges with the color BJ cartridge via the ink suppliers. 5) Rubber sheet The rubber sheet seals the joint sections between the ink cartridge and BJ cartridge. 6) Ink passage section This is a passage through which ink flows from the ink cartridge to the Bubble Jet head unit. 7) Bubble jet head unit The inks of the four colors are supplied separately from the ink cartridges to the 136 bubble jet nozzles. Ink for each color is discharged through the 136 nozzles in accordance with the print signals received through the signal contacts.

3.2.4 Bubble head unit structure


1) Bubble jet nozzles The ink held by the ink sponge goes through a mesh-type ink filter and flows to the bubble jet nozzles via the ink passage of the cartridge body. When the head-drive current is supplied to the heater board, the ink boils and produces several ink bubbles. Eventually, only one ink bubble is formed by boiling. The head-drive current is turned off before an ink droplet leaves the nozzle. The bubbling, however, continues with the residual heat of the heater and causes ink droplets to be discharged from the tips of the nozzles. After an ink droplet is discharged, the nozzle is replenished with more ink from the ink sponge. The heater board of the printhead holds the heater and its circuits which are formed on a silicon plate using semiconductor technology. The silicon plate which contains these electrical circuits is bonded to an aluminum base. A plastic cover molded to fit the nozzles is also provided.

128-bit/136-bit shift resistor Stores the print data (HDATA) transferred from the logic board using the HCLOCK timing. 128-bit/136-bit latch Latches the print data (HDATA) converted by the 128-bit/136-bit shift resistor. Block enable decoder After the BENB (block enable) 1, 2, and 3 code signals are input, the specified heat timing signal is output. The heat timing signal is divided into eighths. Heater (1 to 128 and 1 to 136) The heater boils the ink to produce bubbles required for the nozzles to discharge ink. The heater heats the bubble jet nozzles. Heating is performed with the timing signal produced by the block enable decoder, the even number nozzle heat enable (EvenENB), odd number nozzle heat enable (OddENB), and heat enable (HENB0 to 3) signals. Sub-heater This heater maintains optimum conditions in the nozzle for discharging ink. Temperature control heater This heater controls the head temperature to stabilize the ink discharge amount. Rank resistor To perform optimum ink discharge control, manufacturing inconsistencies in the heater characteristics of each BJ cartridge are categorized into 13 types which are identified by changing the rank resistance value. The printer receives the differences in the rank resistance as voltage values from the analog port of the MPU, and detects them after analog to digital conversion. The heaters characteristics are thus recognized. Head temperature sensor The temperature changes occurring in the heaters of the nozzles are detected by the diode to prevent the bubble jet head from overheating. Cartridge ID The BJ cartridge type is recognized through combinations of ID0, ID1, and INKS2.

5) Ink cartridge detection and identification feature This printer detects the presence of a BJ cartridge by the two resistance values of TOP (pin 9) and DIODEA (pin 10) of the cartridge signal contacts. When the resistance value of TOP is 750 or less and that of DIODEA is not 0 , the printer decides that the cartridge is installed. When the resistance values of these pins do not comply with the above values, the printer decides that the cartridge is not installed. When the printer detects the BJ cartridge, the installed BJ cartridge is identified (black, color, or photo BJ cartridge) based on ID0 (pin 11), ID1 (pin 12), and INKS2 (pin 13) of the cartridge signal contacts. If the printer is turned on without the BJ cartridge (for example, if a user turns on the printer immediately after unpacking the printer), the carriage automatically moves to the cartridge replacement position regardless of its previous position. Also, if the printer is on and the cartridge is removed without replacement, an BJ cartridge not installed error will occur.

3.3 Purge Unit 3.3.1 Purge unit functions


The purge unit of this printer has two caps: the left cap performs both cleaning and capping and the right cap is used exclusively for capping. 1) Capping function The capping function prevents the nozzles from drying out and ink from leaking by pressing the cap of the purge unit against the face of the printhead. If print data is not received for 60 seconds during a printing operation, the purge unit wipes the printhead face. If the printer is turned on but not in printing status, the purge unit will cap the printhead if print data is not received for 5 seconds to 2 minutes, or if the POWER button is pressed to turn off the printer,. 2) Cleaning function The cleaning function maintains the high print quality of the printhead by cleaning the printhead under the conditions given in Table 4-4. The cleaning operation includes: 1) wiping of paper shreds and ink residue from the printhead face plate, 2) absorption to suck out ink from the printhead to refresh the inside of the nozzles with fresh ink, and 3) maintenance jet to prevent inconsistencies in printing caused by unused nozzles. Since only the left cap performs cleaning, clean BJ cartridges individually when 2 BJ cartridges are installed on the carriage. Note also that you cannot clean only one of the BJ cartridges.

1) Purge drive gear The feed roller driven by the paper feed motor operates the purge drive gear via the transmission gear. The purge drive gear in turn operates the cam which controls capping. The position of the cam is transmitted by the purge sensor flag and detected by the purge sensor. 2) Wiper unit When the carriage moves from left to right, the wiper unit retracts to a position where it does not come in contact with the head. When the carriage moves from right to left, however, the wiper unit wipes ink from the BJ cartridge faceplate under the following conditions: 1) when the printer is turned on and off, 2) once every 60 seconds (or after discharging more than the designated number of dots) during printing, 3) after the paper feed operation, 4) after a cleaning operation, and 5) when the cap is opened or closed. 3) Capping unit The purge unit of this printer is equipped with two caps: the left cap which performs both ink absorption and capping, and the right cap which is used exclusively for capping. After the carriage moves to the capping position, the capping unit presses the cap of the purge unit against the face of the printhead to cap the printhead when the purge drive gear is driven. The left cap is equipped with a waste ink tube and sucks ink from the BJ cartridge during cleaning by means of a pumping operation. The sucked ink is sent to the waste ink absorber of the base unit. After ink is sucked, the carriage is moved to the left from the capping position and the pumping operation is performed again to discharge the waste ink accumulated in the rubber cap and waste ink tube to waste ink absorbers. 4) Maintenance jet receiving section The maintenance jet receiving section takes in ink (for test discharge to maintain the nozzles working condition) discharged from the BJ cartridge. 5) Pump unit This unit features a tube pump system which sucks ink by using a rotational roller to apply pressure to the waste ink tube and thus generating negative pressure. The waste ink tube is connected to the left cap only. 6) Slide lock pin The slide lock pin is interlocked with the transmission arm and switches the motor of the paper feed motor. When the carriage moves farther right from the home position, the hook provided at the back of the carriage slides the slide lock pin toward the right to unlock the transmission arm. The use of the transmission gear motor is switched between the purge drive or sheet feeder drive depending on the direction of rotation of the paper feed motor when the transmission arm is unlocked. 7) Carriage lock pin The carriage lock pin is assembled with the capping unit in a single unit. It fixes the carriage from the underside so that the carriage does not move toward either side from the capping position when the cap is pressed against the BJ cartridge face.

3.4.2 Carriage structure


1) BJ cartridge attachment section Two BJ cartridges can be installed on the carriage of this printer. The two cartridge holders on both sides move with the locking lever which fixes the BJ cartridge to the carriage. When a BJ cartridge is fixed to the carriage, the carriage ribbon cable signal contacts are pressed against the bubble jet head signal contacts and the printing signal is transmitted from the logic board. 2) Carriage driver section The stepping-type carriage motor drives the carriage horizontally across the paper with the carriage belt. The photo interrupters home position sensor provided at the back of the carriage detects the home position edge as the initial position. Then, the carriage is controlled by a stepping pulse sent to the carriage motor. The nozzles of the BJ cartridge are positioned at the maintenance jet receiving section when the carriage is located at the home position. 3) Paper feed motor switching section The paper feed motor drives either the purge unit, paper feed, or sheet feeder according to the position of the carriage. When the carriage is not at the extreme right end position of the printer, the slide lock pin of the purge unit will lock the transmission arm operation. When the carriage is moved farther right from the capping position (extreme right end position of the printer), the slide lock pin is unlocked. Switching of the rotation direction of the paper feed motor in the unlocked state selects whether the purge unit or sheet feeder is driven by the paper feed motor. If the feed roller turns in the feed direction while the slide lock pin is unlocked, the transmission arm gear is rotated until it reaches the sheet feeder drive gear, and the paper feed motor drives the sheet feeder. If the feed roller is rotated in the direction opposite of feeding while the slide lock pin is unlocked, the transmission arm gear is rotated until it reaches the purge drive gear, and the paper feed motor drives the purge unit.

1) Paper feed mechanism The paper feed mechanism can supply paper in two ways: automatically from the cut sheet feeder and manually from the manual feeding slot. The built-in cut sheet feeder is driven by the paper feed motor. Paper is stacked in the sheet feeder and fed automatically. Even postcards and envelops can be fed automatically without mechanical operation (a user does not have to operate the paper selection lever). When paper is loaded in both the cut sheet feeder and manual feeding slot, priority is given to the manual feeding slot. When the paper is sensed by the paper end sensor of the photo interrupter, it is fed automatically by the paper feed roller until it reaches the starting position for printing on the platen. The paper feed is controlled during printing by controlling the rotation speed of the paper feed roller. After printing, the paper is delivered out by the eject roller. 2) Automatic printhead and paper clearance adjustment function The paper feed roller and eject roller are pulled up by the coil spring from a lower position to a higher position toward the pressure roller and spur respectively, a consistent clearance is maintained between the printhead face and paper regardless of the paper thickness. As a result this printer allows a user to print without switching the carriage position according to the print paper thickness.

3.5.2 Sheet feeder structure


This printer has no mechanical paper selection lever on the cut sheet feeder. If the paper meets the required specifications, it can be fed without carriage position adjustment etc. according to the paper thickness. The paper is loaded in the cut sheet feeder under the condition where the two leading edge positions and left corner are caught by the pick-up corner and pick-up hook. The pick-up roller starts rotating when the paper feed motor drives the sheet feeder gear and the printer starts printing. Paper such as plain paper is fed when it is caught by the pick-up corner and pick-up hook and then pushed into the paper feed section. When thick paper such as envelopes and postcards is fed, the paper is stiffer than the return force of the pick-up hook spring and pick-up corner spring. Therefore, the pick-up hook and pick-up corner are pressed down to feed the paper. Initial position of the pick-up roller is detected when the flag is sensed by the pick-up roller sensor of the photo interrupter on the logic board. When paper is sensed by the paper end sensor, it is fed automatically until it reaches the print starting position. If paper is not sensed even when the paper feed operation is executed, a paper not loaded or paper jam error will occur. During manual feeding, a user must insert a paper through the manual feeding slot until it reaches the position where the paper end sensor detects the paper. In the manual feed mode, the paper passes through a different paper path from that used by the automatic paper feed mode of the cut sheet feeder. This makes it possible to give priority to manually fed paper, even when paper is loaded in the cut sheet feeder. Paper pushed into the paper feed section is fed to the print starting position after it has been sensed by the paper end sensor.

4. PRINTER ELECTRICAL SYSTEM


4.1 Overview of Printer Electrical System
The electrical system functions are handled by the logic section or power supply. The logic section converts data from the interface into print signals or printer operation signals, drives the BJ cartridge and motors, and monitors the sensor statuses. The power supply unit converts the AC input power supply into DC driving power for the logic board, motor, head and other parts. When AC power is being supplied to the printer, all printer hardware components are active except for the following: heater power supply VH and Vcc of the head; power supply of photo interrupters (5) total; and head rank circuit.

4.2.2 Logic section components


1) MPU & printer controller The MPU contains a 16-bit CPU, 512K-byte work RAM, 24-bit address bus port, 16bit data bus port, stepping motor controller, A-D converter, interface controller, printhead controller, buffer controller, DRAM controller, EEPROM controller, I/O ports, and other components. Built-in CPU The 16-bit CPU operation is synchronized with a 25MHz external clock input. Address bus Bits A1 to A20 of the 24-bit address bus port are connected to an 8M-bit control ROM (the 4 bits from A21 to A23 and A0 are not used). Chip selection of the control ROM is performed by the read signal output by the MPU & printer controller. Data bus Like the address bus, the 16-bit data bus port is also connected to the 8M-bit control ROM. Stepping motor controller The stepping motor controller outputs the two-phase excitation drive signals of the carriage motor and paper feed motor. A-D converter The following analog signals are detected after they pass through the built-in A-D converter: AN0: The printer's internal temperature, print position information, and ink reflection density are detected by the thermistor on the logic board selected by the multiplexer, and the auto-alignment sensor on the carriage. AN1: The head temperature and head rank in the RIGHT BJ cartridge are detected by the rank resistor and head temperature sensor in the RIGHT BJ cartridge selected by the multiplexer. AN2: The head temperature and head rank in the LEFT BJ cartridge are detected by the rank resistor and head temperature sensor in the LEFT BJ cartridge selected by the multiplexer. Interface controller The interface controller receives, from the computer, 8-bit parallel data which is synchronized with the data strobe pulse (STROBE) through the BUSY/ACKNLG handshake. It also controls other interface signals. Data received through the interface is stored in the DRAMs receive buffer and analyzed by the MPU & printer controller. When the printer initialization signal INIT is input through the interface to the MPU & printer controller, the MPU & printer controller output a BUSY signal. Also, after the print data in the print buffer is printed, the printer is initialized.

BJC-5000

Part 4: Technical Reference

DRAM controller The DRAM controller controls the 9-bit address/16-bit data bus of the 4M-bit DRAM, and also performs the read/write control, RAS/CAS control, and refresh control. Buffer controller The buffer controller automatically writes and reads the print buffer in the DRAM, manages the remaining capacity of the print buffer, and clears the data after it is read. Printhead controller The printhead controller sends the print data read from the print buffer in the DRAM to the printhead. At the same time, the printed dots are counted for variable control of the HeatENB signal pulse width (Pre/main pulse width). The head-driving signals consist of block enable signals (BENB 0, 1, 2) and odd/even enable signals (ODENB/EVENB) which are used in common for both LEFT and RIGHT BJ cartridges, and heat enable signals (HENB0L, 1L, 2L, 3L for LEFT; HENB0R, 1R, 2R, 3R for RIGHT) which are used separately for the LEFT and RIGHT BJ cartridges. The block enable signals and odd/even enable signals specify the block for the time-shared drive. The heat enable signals control the conduction time of the eject heater. I/O port Signals for the setting statuses determined by the POWER button, RESET button, auto-alignment sensor, head temperature sensor, head ID, paper end sensor, home position sensor, pick-up roller sensor, and purge sensor are input through the input ports. Signals for operations such as POWER indicator, ERROR indicator, buzzer, BJ cartridge detection, and head-driving voltage control are output from the output ports. 3) Control ROM (U2) The 8M-bit control ROM contains the printer control program. 4) DRAM (U11) Controlled by the MPU & printer controller, the 4M-bit control DRAM is used as a print buffer and working area. 5) Reset IC (U6) This IC detects the power voltage when power is turned on or during an instantaneous power failure and resets the MPU & printer controller. 6) EEPROM (U10) Controlled by the MPU & printer controller, the 1K-bit Electrically Enable and Programmable ROM (EEPROM) stores various function settings, the total count of printed sheets, and total waste ink amount.

5. SENSOR FUNCTIONS
The printer has a pick-up roller sensor, paper end sensor, home position sensor, purge sensor, cover open sensor, printer temperature sensor, head temperature sensor, and auto-alignment sensor. The printer is also provided with a waste ink absorption amount detection function which counts and stores the waste ink absorption amount in the EEPROM and issues an error signal when the waste ink absorber becomes full.

Figure 4-30 Sensors 5.1 Pick-Up Roller Sensor


The photo interrupter-type pick-up roller sensor detects the initial position of the sheet feeder pick-up roller. When the initial position is detected, the flag interrupts the sensor and the sensor detection status is activated.

5.2 Paper End Sensor


The photo interrupter-type paper end sensor uses the paper sensor arms flag to detect the presence of paper when the front edge of the paper sheet passes through the paper feeding mechanism. The sensor is closed by the paper sensor arm when there is no paper, and opened (paper is recognized) when paper is detected.

4-41

Part 4: Technical Reference

BJC-5000

5.3 Home Position Sensor


The photo interrupter-type home position sensor senses the home position edge and detects the carriage position. After the edge is detected, the carriage moves to the right. The position where the maintenance jet is executed becomes the home position.

5.4 Purge Sensor


The photo interrupter-type purge sensor uses a flag in the purge unit to detect the capping position. When the capping position is detected, the sensor is interrupted and the sensor detection status is activated.

5.5 Cover Open Sensor


The photo interrupter-type cover open sensor detects the front cover open/close status. When the front cover is closed, a flag interrupts the sensor and the sensor detection status is activated.

5.6 Printer Temperature Sensor


The printer temperature sensor on the control board is a thermistor which detects the printers internal temperature. The thermistor resistance fluctuates with any temperature change. This change in resistance is detected as a change in the voltage by the MPU & printer controller. The analog value input to the MPU & printer controller is converted into a digital value by the internal A-D converter to detect the temperature. After the printer temperature is detected, the head-driving control and head temperature adjustment signals control are performed accordingly.

5.7 Head Temperature Sensor


The head temperature sensor in the printer is a diode sensor which detects the heads internal temperature. Temperature changes in the printer are detected by the MPU & printer controller as voltage-level changes. The analog value input to the MPU & printer controller is converted into a digital value by the internal A-D converter. The digital value is used for stopping the head operation if the head temperature increases abnormally.

5.8 Auto-Alignment Sensor


The auto-alignment sensor consists of the LED and photo diode. The light of LED is reflected on a printing paper and read by the photo diode. The auto-alignment sensor detects the ink density difference between LEFT and RIGHT printheads and print position (vertical, horizontal, skew) by the changed amount of reflection density while printing the auto-head alignment pattern. This information is also used by the printer driver for automatic adjustment during printing. The sensor detects the run-out of the printhead ink, though only when the auto-head alignment pattern is printed.

4-42

BJC-5000
5.9 Waste Ink Amount Detection

Part 4: Technical Reference

Waste ink is discharged during head maintenance and absorbed by the waste ink absorber. If the amount of waste ink discharged exceeds the absorption capacity of the waste ink absorber, ink might leak from the printer. To prevent ink from leaking, the waste ink absorber capacity is estimated and detected when full. The waste ink is discharged during the maintenance jet and cleaning operations. The amount of waste ink discharged by the maintenance jet and cleaning operations is estimated by the count value of the ink dot counter. Then the waste ink amount is calculated, taking into consideration the amount of evaporated ink. When the calculated waste ink amount approaches the preset full capacity of the waste ink absorber, a waste ink alarm occurs; if it exceeds the full capacity of the waste ink absorber, a waste ink-full error occurs.

4.1 Disassembly and Reassembly
When disassembling or reassembling the printer, refer to the parts catalog. The figure numbers in the parts catalog are provided in the order of disassembly. Close-up diagrams are also provided for parts where you need to exercise caution during disassembly and reassembly.

4.2 Disassembly and Reassembly Cautions


When disassembling or reassembling the printer, heed the following cautions.

4.2.1 Fastening screws of idler pulley assembly


When the screws of the idler pulley assembly are loosened during removal of the carriage or other maintenance services, be sure to use the tension spring (QY9-0039000) listed as a special tool for the installation procedure. Before fixing the screws, move the carriage 3 times sideways to stabilize the belt tension. After fixing the screw, be sure to remove the tension spring.

4.2.2 Carriage guide frame installation

Part 5: Maintenance

The carriage guide frame adjusts the head gap between the BJ cartridge nozzles and platen to obtain optimum printing quality. It is mounted on the printer frame. The head gap must be adjusted only when the carriage guide frame position on the printer frame is changed. The screws fastening the carriage guide frame are painted red so that they are not loosened during servicing. If the carriage guide frame position is changed unintentionally, follow the procedure in 5. ADJUSTMENTS (page 5-8) to adjust the head gap.

4.2.3 Unlocking the carriage lock


The carriage is normally locked at the capping position when the printer is turned off. This feature is provided by the carriage lock mechanism in the purge unit. It prevents the carriage from moving from the capping position during transportation or being moved by hand to assure that normal printhead protection (capping) is performed. If the carriage moves when the printer turned on during servicing, unplug the AC power cord to unlock the carriage. If the printer is not turned on or the carriage does not move, follow the procedure below to unlock the carriage lock manually. You can also lock the carriage manually when you transport the printer.

3 2 1

Figure 5-4 Unlocking the Carriage Lock 4.3 Logic Board and Waste Ink Absorber Replacement Cautions 4.3.1 Logic board replacement cautions
The logic boards EEPROM stores the various settings, waste ink amount, total count of printed sheets, and other data related to the printer. The data stored in the logic boards EEPROM, excepting the total waste ink amount setting (25%, 50%, 75%), cannot be rewritten into the new EEPROM after the logic board is replaced. The data in the EEPROM installed on a replacement logic board is unclear. After the logic board/EEPROM is replaced, clear the EEPROM. After clearing the EEPROM, calibrate the auto-alignment sensor as described in Part 3: 3.4 Service Mode (page 318). When replacing the logic board (clearing the EEPROM), visually check the amount of waste ink in the waste ink absorber. Replace the waste ink absorber or set the total waste ink amount as required. Depending on the amount of waste ink already absorbed in the waste ink absorber, ink may leak from the printer even before a waste ink-full warning or waste ink-full error is output. (See Part 3: 3.4 Service Mode on page 3-18 for setting the waste ink amount.) However, it is not necessary to replace the waste ink absorber or set the waste ink amount if the printer has been in use for less than 2 weeks and less than 50 pages have been printed out.

BJC-5000

Part 5: Maintenance

NOTE

The waste ink absorber consists of three layers. When the printer is first used, most of the waste ink is absorbed by the lower waste ink absorber layer. The amount of waste ink in the upper layer of the waste ink absorber rises as the waste ink amount increases.

Absorber Cover Waste Ink Absorber


**

Figure 5-5 Waste Ink Absorber 4.3.2 Cautions after replacing the waste ink absorber
After a waste ink-full error (warning) occurs and the waste ink absorber is replaced, reset the waste ink counter in the Service Mode. (See Part 3: 3.4 Service Mode on page 3-18.) When a waste ink-full error (warning) occurs, it can be assumed that the printer has printed more sheets than its service life called for. However, this also depends on how many times the cartridge has been replaced and the usage conditions. When a color/photo BJ cartridge is used, more ink is consumed due to head maintenance compared to a black BJ cartridge. Therefore, the waste ink amount will also be more.

NOTE

5. ADJUSTMENTS
5.1 Adjustment Point
Only the distance (head gap) between the BJ cartridges nozzles and platen needs to be adjusted to the designated value (approximately 1.9mm) to ensure optimum printing quality. This adjustment is done by moving the cartridge guide frame fixing position forward or backward. The adjustment is necessary only when loosening the red screw which secures the carriage guide frame.

5.3 Adjustment Procedure 5.3.1 Preparation

Part 5: Maintenance

1) Remove the upper case unit. 2) Turn on the printer under the condition where no BJ cartridge is installed in the carriage. (At this time, the carriage will move to position A.) 3) Disconnect the power cord. 4) Push in the carriage guide frame as indicated by arrows in Figure 5-7 and lightly fix the frame with screws A and B. 5) Install a black BJ cartridge (procured for servicing) on the left of the carriage.

CAUTION

Before making the adjustment, make sure that the gap gauge is not deformed and there are no foreign particles on it and the platen. The platen has a structure which enables it to move up and down vertically while maintaining a fixed distance between the head and paper depending on the paper thickness. When the printer is turned on and initialization starts, the LF motor rotates in the normal direction. This operation will set the platen in the normal position of no paper loaded condition. Do not press the platen down during adjustment.

6. TROUBLESHOOTING
6.1 Troubleshooting 6.1.1 Overview
This chapter consists of the following two sections on subsequent pages: Error condition diagnosis for diagnosing a problem when the cause is unknown and Symptoms for resolving problems whose causes are known. In the case of an unknown problem, diagnose the problem. If the cause is known, follow the corrective actions to resolve the problem.

6.1.2 Troubleshooting cautions


1. Before troubleshooting, make sure the connectors and ribbon cable are properly connected. Especially if a problem occurs at random, be sure to check the connections thoroughly. 2. When servicing the printer with its outer casing removed and the AC adapter connected, beware of electrical shocks and PCB short circuiting. 3. Troubleshooting is described in flowchart form. The following symbols are used in the flowcharts.

4. If there is a problem with the printing quality or paper feeding, first check whether the installation site and paper meet the required specifications. Also check whether the printer settings are correct and paper is loaded properly. 5. After replacing parts or repairing the printer, be sure to make a test print to confirm that the problem has been fixed. If the problem still persists, troubleshoot again without the steps already executed. Example 1

Part 5: Maintenance

6. In some cases, several corrective actions are successively indicated in Error condition diagnosis and Symptoms. These are steps that must be followed to resolve the problems. After you perform each corrective action step, make a test print to confirm whether the problem has been fixed. If the problem persists, perform the next step. Example 2 Corrective action 1: After replacing the BJ cartridge, execute a test printout to check whether the problem has been fixed. If the problem persists, perform the next step (corrective action 2), which calls for replacement of the logic board.

Remove and reinstall the BJ cartridge

Printer recognizes the cartridge ? Yes

No 1. Replace the BJ cartridge 2. Replace the logic board BJ Cartridgeis faulty Check th e BJ cartridge MPU is faulty

END

7. Ink cartridge replacement as a corrective action is only applicable when the color BJ cartridge has produced the Symptom. When using the black BJ cartridge for troubleshooting, advance to the next step. 8. After finishing troubleshooting, be sure to reconnect connectors and tighten any loosened screws.

CAUTION

When replacing the control board, be sure to execute the EEPROM all clear and AA sensor calibration and check the waste ink absorption amount of the waste ink absorber. In addition, replace the waste ink absorber or set the waste ink amount according to the requirement. Refer to Part 3: 3.4 Service Mode (page 3-18) and Part 5: 4.3 Logic Board and Waste Ink Absorber Replacement Cautions (page 5-6).

5 Faulty Printing <3>: Other Print Problems


Symptom Paper contamination Check item Ink mist on the platen Ink has dried up around the head nozzles. (No paper stain occurs by paper feeding or ejecting but occurs during printing only.) Ink has clogged or paper bits have stuck around the head wiper or head capping area of the purge unit. Ink has adhered to the paper transport system (Paper is already contaminated before it reaches the platen.) Spur tracks appear. Ink has adhered to the spurs. The spurs are deformed. The BJ cartridge has been installed incorrectly. The head is not aligned properly. The problem occurs when your BJ cartridge (which may cause this problem) is installed in a normallyoperating printer. The head gap has not been adjusted to the regulated value (You cannot check to see if this gap is appropriate*). The carriage guide frame is deformed. Frictional wear between the carriage base and the carriage shaft. The head has not been aligned properly. Insufficient cleaning / Ink run-out / Faulty BJ cartridge The printout is either too light or too dark. The printing darkness is unbalanced. Check the printing mode. The BJ cartridge is faulty. The head has not been aligned properly. Corrective action Use a piece of soft cloth lightly damped with water to clean the platen. Clean the head nozzles and their surroundings several times. If the problem persists, replace the BJ cartridge. Replace the purge unit or wiper unit. Disassemble the paper transport system, then use a piece of soft cloth lightly damped with water to clean the platen. Use a soft toothbrush to clean the spurs. Replace the spurs. Reinstall the BJ cartridge correctly. Use the printer driver to perform the automatic head alignment operation. Replace the BJ cartridge.

Lines are not ruled properly.

Adjust the head gap (See 5. Adjustments on page 5-8).

Corrugated printing

Replace the carriage guide frame. Replace the carriage unit. Use the printer driver to perform the automatic head alignment operation. Perform the cleaning operation several times, then execute a test print. Replace the BJ cartridge. Set the desired printing mode. Replace the BJ cartridge.
