Product Description Controller Specification 40 If the circuit board is replaced, or other service performed, the USB ID may be changed to another ID (this is because the USB ID is rewritten when the EEPROM storing the USB ID is damaged or the circuit board is replaced).In this case, if a printer with the USB ID changed is connected to the PC, it is recognized as a different printer, so the PC requires the USB port driver to be installed again.

EPL-6200 incorporates an internal non-volatile memory (EEPROM). If the power to the printer is turned off during the process of writing in non-volatile memory, the successful writing in the non-volatile memory cannot be guaranteed. Use this switch only in cases where the above special environmental conditions exist. When the use environment returns to normal environmental conditions, it is necessary to return it to the original setting immediately. Therefore, the next time the printer is turned on, panel settings may be initialized or a service call error may occur. The non-volatile memory saves the function settings, and the following cases are those SETTING PROCEDURE in which the memory is rewritten, and therefore the printer should not be powered off: 1. Open the printer driver on the personal computer. ∎ After the printer is powered on, until the Ready LED lights up. 2. Open the “Optional Settings” page. ∎ While the printer is printing.

(See “Figure 2-7”) 2.2.1.2 Exposure Process □ The laser beam from the print head creates an electrostatic latent image on the OPC drum surface. (See “Figure 2-8”) 2nd Mirror □ The following control is performed in order to find the appropriate timing to print the image. Polygon Mirror SOS Mirror ∎ When the printer receives the PRINT signal, the polygon motor and the main motor operate, and paper feeding is started. Figure 2-7. Print Head Constitution ∎ Upon passage of a specified period of time after the front end of the fed sheet turns the paper feed sensor ON (TOD signal), the main control board sends the VIDEO signal to the print head, and printing starts. ∎ When moving on from the first line to the second line, the print starting position is shifted down by delaying the VIDEO signal sending time ∎ The Print Head incorporates the SOS sensor to unify the timing of the laser emission for every line of main scanning. OPC Drum Figure 2-8. Exposure Process Operating Principles Description of Mechanisms 74 Laser Diode Print Head Unit Polygon Motor SOS (Start of Scan) Sensor EPSON EPL-6200/EPL-6200L Revision A 2.2.1.3 Laser Emission Timing □ When the Ready signal is detected upon passage of a certain period of time after issue of the printing start signal, the Laser ON signal is output from the Mechanical Control SOS Mirror Polygon Mirror Board. (See “Figure 2-9”) □ Upon issue of the Laser ON signal, the laser beam is forcibly emitted. The laser beam, via the polygon mirror → G1 lens → SOS mirror, strikes the SOS sensor to issue the SOS signal. G1 Lens □ This SOS signal unifies the timing of the laser emission for every line of main scanning. 2.2.1.4 Laser Emission Area □ Main Scanning Direction (See “Figure 2-10”) ∎ Printing start timing with laser is such that the printing start position is determined by the main scanning printing start signal (/HSYNC) output from the Mechanical Control Board and by the paper width. SOS Sensor ∎ The laser emission area is determined by the paper size. However, the 4-mm Figure 2-9. Laser Emission Timing width area at each of right and left edges is a no-image area. □ Sub Scanning Direction ∎ Printing start timing with laser is such that the printing start position is determined by the sub scanning printing start signal (/TOD) output from the Mechanical Control Board and by the paper length. ∎ The laser emission area is determined by the paper size. However, the 4-mm width area at each of the head and tail edges is a no-image area. Figure 2-10. Laser Emission Area Operating Principles Description of Mechanisms 75 EPSON EPL-6200/EPL-6200L Revision A 2.2.1.5 Cooling inside the Printer The Cooling Fan Motor discharges the heat emitted by the Print Head Unit to the outside of the printer, thus preventing temperature rise of the Print Head Unit. Figure 2-11. Cooling inside the Printer Operating Principles Description of Mechanisms 76 EPSON EPL-6200/EPL-6200L Revision A 2.2.2 Charging Process □ Before laser exposure, static electricity is given to the OPC drum (Organic Photoconductor) to charge it. Photoconductor Unit □ The surface of the OPC drum is charged by the rotating brush (charging brush) and Paper Powder Cleaner Drum Cover pre-charging film. □ Charging by the charging brush and the pre-charging film, by which charge is given directly to the OPC drum, is characterized by generating ozone rarely, requiring a low voltage and excelling in homogeneity and stability of the electric potential. □ The pre-charging film performs preliminary charging before charging with the rotary brush (charging brush) to enhance efficiency of charging.

Development Process (Imaging Cartridge) Operating Principles Description of Mechanisms 78 EPSON EPL-6200/EPL-6200L Revision A 2.2.3.2 OPC Drum □ An OPC (Organic Photo Conductor) is used. Electric charge retaining layer Carrier generation layer □ This photoconductor is of a laminate type consisting of a carrier generation layer and an electric charge retaining layer applied onto an aluminum base (cylinder). Aluminum base (See “Figure 2-14”) Precautions in Handling: The organic photoconductor can deteriorate by sensitivity change due to light fatigue if it is exposed to light for an extended period of time. To prevent such deterioration, when the OPC Drum has been taken out of the printer body, cover it with a clean soft cloth to Figure 2-14. OPC Drum protect it from exposure to light. In handling the Photoconductor Unit, take great care that no dirt adheres to the surface of the OPC Drum photoconductor. Front Plate Assy □ Grounding of OPC drum: The grounding contact of the photoconductor is located in its front inside and always in contact with the shaft of the front plate of the print unit. When the print unit is installed in the printer body, the setting pin of the print unit front plate comes in contact with the front plate of the printer body to achieve grounding. Shaft Thus, the electric charge on the photoconductor in the area exposed to light is grounded through the grounding plate, the shaft and the setting pin to the frame. (See “Figure 2-15”) Grounding Plate Figure 2-15. Grounding of OPC drum Operating Principles Description of Mechanisms 79 EPSON EPL-6200/EPL-6200L Revision A 2.2.3.3 Development Process □ Toner in the Developer Cartridge (toner cartridge) is sent into the toner sending roller area by the toner agitation blade. OPC Drum 2nd Toner Blade □ The toner sending roller transports the toner to the development roller side. 1st Toner Blade □ The toner which has been transported onto the development roller forms a uniform Toner Transport Roller thin layer on the development roller by the operation of the 1st toner blade. □ Negative charge is applied to the 2nd toner blade to give negative charge to the toner. Development Roller □ Negative charge is applied to the development roller to keep the toner staying there. Bias Seal □ Toner sticks to the area exposed to the laser beam on the OPC drum. □ The toner left on the development roller without sticking to the OPC drum is collected into the toner hopper by the operation of the bias seal located under the development roller. To this bias seal, the same bias voltage as is applied to the development roller is applied to prevent toner from dropping. □ The development bias voltage is adjusted by feedback control so that the print Toner Blade Voltage Terminal Development Bias voltage terminal density is automatically adjusted in the range of seven steps. In addition, reverse bias voltage against the development bias is applied to prevent toner from sticking to the OPC drum before printing start, before preliminary turning of the drum and during preliminary turning.
