2.2.3 Paper Feeding Mechanism


Paper loading/feeding mechanism consist of CR lock lever inside the ink system, holder shaft unit (including clutch mechanism), and ASF unit. CR lock lever and clutch mechanism play an important role in paper loading mechanism. Refer to 2.2.3.2 Drive Process (p25) for details.

2.2.3.2 Drive Process


1. Drive of the PF motor is transmitted to the paper eject roller and the PF roller via the PF timing belt, however, it is not transmitted to the LD roller and the retard roller owing to the clutch of the holder shaft unit. The carriage unit moves to the ASF trigger position once the paper loading command is received. PF motor is rotated counter clockwise, and the clutch is released by the PF motor lever. After the clutch is released, the PF motor rotates clockwise. Drive is transmitted to the LD roller and the paper loading operation begins. During paper loading operation, papers are fed from the ASF unit to inside the printer by the rotating movement of the two cams of the LD roller. 6. Cam, large: releases hopper Cam, small:releases paper back lever

Once a sheet of paper is fed, the hopper and the paper back lever bring back rest of the papers to the position in readiness by the rotating movement of the two cams mentioned above. When the LD roller is turned a full circle, the CR lock lever release the clutch and the drive to the LD roller is interfered.

3.1 Overview
This chapter describes how to solve problems.
W A R N IN G

3.1.2 Preliminary Checks


Before starting troubleshooting, be sure to verify that the following conditions are all met: The power supply voltage must be within the specification limits. (Measure the voltage at the wall socket.) The power code must be free from damage, short circuit or breakage, or miswiring in the power code. The printer must be grounded properly. The printer should not be located in a place where it can be exposed to too high or low temperature, too high or low humidity, or abrupt temperature change. The printer should not be located near waterworks, near humidifiers, near heaters or near flames, in a dusty atmosphere or in a place where the printer can be exposed to blast from an air conditioner. The printer should not be located in a place where volatile or inflammable gases are produced. The printer should not be located in a place where it can be exposed to direct rays of the sun. The printer must be located in a well-ventilated place. The printer must be placed on a strong and steady level table (without an inclination larger than five degrees). The paper used must conform to the specification. There is no error in handling of the printer.

Be careful to avoid electric shocks when checking the electrical circuit boards (C616 MAIN, PSE and B circuit boards) while the power is turned on. Touching an FET, transistor or heat sink with one hand while touching a metal part of the mechanism with the other hand could result in an electric shock, so carefully avoid this. After initial filling of ink has been repeated several times, immediate moving or tilting of the printer could result in leaking of ink that has not been completely absorbed by the Waste Ink Pad. When initial filling of ink has been repeated several times, check the ink remaining in the tip of the Waste Ink Tube and the waste ink not absorbed by the Waste Ink Pad before moving the printer. Disassembly and reassembly of parts is often required when identifying the causes of problems. The parts should be disassembled and re-assembled correctly while referring to DISASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY (p35) so that the operation and status of each check item can be correctly verified. Some individual part and units may require adjustment once they are removed or replaced. If removing or replacing parts which have specific instructions for adjustment included in DISASSEMBLY/ASSEMBLY (p35), be sure to make these adjustments after repairing the problem location.

4.2 Caution regarding Assembling/Disassembling of the Printer Mechanism, and How to Ensure of Quality on Re-assembled Product
On current low end models, weve basically forbidden to remove Housing, Lower from Printer mechanism in your repair. This is because there is a possibility of main frame deformation when a part (such as Ink system) is removed from Printer mechanism without Housing, Lower. For this reason, if you want to replace Ink system/PF motor, we recommend to replace with new Printer mechanism with Housing, Lower. On these models, you have to remove Housing, Lower from printer mechanism when replacing Waste Ink Pad with a new one. Therefore, we clarify caution regarding assembling/disassembling of the printer mechanism without Housing, Lower, and how to ensure of quality on repaired products in this section. [Caution regarding assembling/disassembling of the printer mechanism] 1) Main frame (a) Control of assembled standard position. [Reason] The assembled accuracy of each part composed of Printer mechanism is based on Housing, Lower. [Service treatment] Confirm that there is no gap between main frame and Housing, Lower. [Reference] To ensure the assembled accuracy, you have to control the assembled standard position of main frame against X/Y/Z-axis direction. [X-axis direction] - Make sure that main frame is correctly placed on the groove of Housing, Lower. - Make sure that there is no gap between main frame and Housing, Lower. [Y-axis direction] Make sure that cut-out portion of main frame is correctly placed on the square protrusion of Housing, Lower.

If any abnormal print (dot missing, white line, etc.) has occurred or the printer indicates the "Maintenance request error" (This error is displayed as "Maintenance call error" in the STM3), take the following actions to clear the error.

6.1.1 Cleaning
This printer has no mechanical components which require regular cleaning except the Printhead. Therefore, when returning the printer to the user, check the following parts and perform appropriate cleaning if stain is noticeable.
.

Printhead cleaning
When dot missing or banding phenomenon has occurred, you need to perform the printhead cleaning operation*1 by using the printhead cleaning function. This function can be performed by the control panel operation, the printer driver utility and the Adjustment program. In case that the cleaning sequence is performed by the control panel operation, confirm that the printer is in stand-by state (the Power LED is lighting), and hold down the Error reset button on the control panel for more than 3 seconds. Then, the printer starts the cleaning sequence (the Power LED blinks during this sequence). In case that you select and perform the manual cleaning by the printer driver utility, the most appropriate cleaning mode is selected. The following is the process to perform the printhead cleaning from the printer driver utility. As for the operation of the Adjustment program, refer to Chapter5 ADJUSTMENT (p.77). *1: The Stylus C67/C68/D68 has four modes for manual cleaning, and even during printing, the appropriate cleaning mode is automatically selected and performed according to various conditions. Therefore the ink consumption amount for manual cleaning varies depending on each mode.

C A U T IO N

Never use chemical solvents, such as thinner, benzine, and


acetone to clean the exterior parts of the printer like the Housing. These chemicals may deform or deteriorate the components of the printer. Be careful not to damage any components when you clean inside the printer. Do not scratch the coated surface of the PF roller. Use soft brush to wipe off any dusts. Use a soft cloth moistened with alcohol to remove the ink stain. Do not use cleaning sheet included in the media for normal usage. It may damage the coated surface of PF roller. If the adhesive surface of the cleaning sheet is set to the LD roller shaft side and used to clean the LD roller surface, it is no problem. When using compressed air products; such as air duster, for cleaning during repair and maintenance, the use of such products containing flammable gas is prohibited.

Exterior parts
Use a clean soft cloth moistened with water, and wipe off any dirt. If the exterior parts are stained by the ink, use a cloth moistened with neutral detergent to wipe it off.

Inside the printer


Use a vacuum cleaner to remove any paper dust.

LD Roller
When paper loading function does not operate because friction of the LD roller is lowered by any paper dust, set the adhesive side up of the cleaning sheet (included in the media) to remove any paper dust. Repeat loading the cleaning sheet several times.

1. Select the EPSON Status Monitor 3 in the printer driver utility, and make sure that the printer is in stand-by state by using the Status monitor 3. If the printer is in stand-by state, the following figure is indicated on the monitor.

Revision C Maintenance request error (Maintenance call error)


Ink is used for the printhead cleaning operation as well as the printing operation. When the ink is used for the printhead cleaning operation, the ink is drained to the Waste drain ink pad and the amount of the waste ink is stored as the waste ink counter into the EEPROM on the Main board. Due to this, when the waste ink max counter has reached the limit of the absorbing capability of the Waste drain ink pad*,) the Maintenance call error is indicated on Status monitor 3 as following figure. But waste ink max counter is chenged by usage, therefore waste ink max counter is not necessarily right. *): The range of the waste ink counter is 8100 ~ 16900. ( means initial maximam value of mon-used printer.)

Figure 6-1. Status monitor 3 indication


2. Select the Head Cleaning in the printer driver utility, and perform the printhead cleaning. After performing the printhead cleaning operation, print a nozzle check pattern by selecting the Nozzle Check. If you repeat the printhead cleaning operation without selecting the Nozzle Check, CL1, the weakest cleaning, will be repeated.

Figure 6-3. Maintenance error indication in STM3


In this case, replace to new Waste drain ink pad and clear the waste ink counter stored into the EEPROM. The waste ink counter can be reset only from the Adjustment program because this printer dose not have the waste ink counter reset function by the control panel SW. As for the procedure, refer to Chapter5 ADJUSTMENT (p.77). In your repair activity, check the waste ink counter along with the firmware version, Main board checker program version and nozzle check pattern on the nozzle check pattern printing. If the waste ink counter is closed to its limit, recommend that the Waste drain ink pad will be replaced with new one. This is because the "Maintenance request error" will may occur after returning the repaired product to the customer.
