Maintaining laser printer optical path
Mon, 14 Feb 2011 12:29:42 -0600

Within my personal Las Vegas Copier Servicing repair experience filthy optics has been the they most frequent failure in older laser printers with Canon machines. Be careful mainly because the optics are delicate and very easily damaged. Use an air bulb to blow off any loose dust or toner. And then use rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab or lens tissue to clean the exposed surfaces. DO NOT disassemble any optics elements since the alignment may be crucial. Hence it's a good idea to clean the entire optical path from the laser diode and forward. Most of this is inside of the scanner module and there may also be a long external reflector. With time these surfaces become covered with a film of toner or dirt and the laser beam reaching the drum gets weaker and diffused. Print quality suffers and scanner failure errors will occur, which may be intermittent at first, but gradually they will shut the printer down totally. So open up the scanner module and softly clean all the prisms, mirrors and lenses. I say gently because the mirrors are front coated and the lenses may be plastic which can be scratched by aggressive cleaning with cotton swabs. Clean the external mirror if there is one. There is also a beam detection sensor which in turn will have it's own small lens or prism which must be cleansed. Good luck. Fuser rollers can also develop a band of baked-on toner which is tricky to remove because it is harder than the fuser's PTFE coating. I have developed a cleaning method which has worked well for me so far. First, wipe the roller with a swab or soft cloth and a few drops of isopropyl alcohol. Following, stick a piece of packing tape onto the roller where the toner has adhered and rub it so that it sticks well. Ultimately, pull off the tape in the direction of a tangent line to the curve of the roller so it 'snaps' off rather than peeling it off. It may require a few tries, but the toner should come off in large pieces. A blast of cold spray can help with determined deposits. It isn't important to remove the roller from the fuser with this method--just work in small sections and turn the roller a bit more each time. With extended exposure in toner cartridges long term direct exposure to light will influence the photoconductive layer. We even cover areas of some scratched after-market drums and uncovered them to sunlight to see how it effected them. It takes extended exposure to show an effect. The printer will not detect the trouble and the printer will probably print dark for the basic constructive image laser printer. -- Copier Servicing

LIPS - Canon Laser-beam Image Processing System
Sat, 13 Nov 2010 01:03:24 -0600

LIPS supports Diablo 630 (the factory setting for the command mode), ISO mode (for printing text data and raster graphics) and VDM mode (for vector graphics and character printing). Another name for this emulation is CaPSL. LIPS is based on ISO/IEC 646 - 7-bit coded character set for information interchange ISO/IEC 6429 - ECMA-48 Control Functions for Coded Character Sets ISO/IEC 2022 - Character code structure and extension techniques X3H33 - ANSI X3H33 (VDM) Versions LIPS I 1984 - (Models: LBP-8 AJ1, LBP-8 AJ2) LIPS II 1987 - (Models: LBP-B406, LBP-A408) LIPS III 1989 - (Models: LBP-B406 Series, LBP-A404 Series, LBP-405Jr, LBP-A304 Series, LBP-A309G II) LIPS IVc 1993 - (Models: BJC-880J, BJC-680J) LIPS IV 1995 - (Models: LBP-730) Reference CaPSL III escape codes: lbp_escapes.txt There are some japanese reference manuals available from the japanese Canon FTP site: ESC 0x1b CSI 0xE9 DCS 0xDC ST 0xEA   Command Syntax Version Reset ESC;ESCcESC; Soft Reset ESC< LIPS 3 Fullpaint Mode ESC[2&z Select Page Type ESC[#p # = numerical, ascii even = portrait uneven = landscape 12/13 = A3 14/15 = A4 16/17 = A5 18/19 = Postcard 20/21 = A4 24/25 = B4 26/27 = B5 28/29 = B6 30/31 = Letter 32/33 = Legal 40/41 = Executive Set Mode ESC[#h # = numerical, ascii Select Unit Size (300dpi) ESC[7 I Move # dots up ESC[#k # = numerical, ascii --
Diablo 630
Sat, 13 Nov 2010 00:59:05 -0600

Diablo 630 emulation was originally used with daisywheel printers and typewriters. It supports only sequences for tabulation, line and character spacing, attribute selection (bold, double-strike, underline), horizontal movement in both directions, proportional spacing and automatic centering and justification among others. This emulation is sometimes used by other vendors as a base for their printer specific emulation. Reference Some information can be found in the “Brother Laser Printer HL-Series - Technical Reference Guide“: hl-series_techreference_revc_oct1994.pdf Command Syntax and Format Syntax The following conventions are used in this description of the Diablo 630 mode software commands: A letter, control code, word or number in upright bold text is a literal character and should be sent to the printer as the character code. A letter or word in italics is a variable and you must substitute the appropriate value or values when using the command. A statement element enclosed in angle brackets < > may be of any size up to some specified maximum. Conventions The printable area is the area of the page where the printer can place a dot. The units of horizontal and vertical movement on the page are the horizontal motion index (HMI) and vertical motion index (VMI). You can set these units as you wish and then move the print position horizontally or vertically in multiples of them. The bits that comprise a byte of data are numbered 1 to 8. Bit 1 is the least significant bit (LSB) and bit 8 is the most significant bit (MSB). Control Codes Control codes are ASCII codes that instruct the printer to perform a particular operation, such as a line feed. Send a control code to the printer by sending the same type of instruction you would use to print a character using its ASCII code number. For example, the ASCII code for a form feed is 12, so to get the printer to perform a form feed use the following BASIC statement: LPRINT CHR$(12); The CHR$ operator is normally used to convert an ASCII code into its corresponding character. Escape Sequences Escape sequences tell the printer the Diablo 630 mode function to perform. An escape sequence consists of the Esc character followed by one or more characters which define the operation to be performed. Send an escape sequence to the printer by sending the same type of instruction you would use to print characters using their ASCII codes. Some escape sequences require parameter values or data following them, for example, commands which turn a particular feature on and off. Numerical parameter data, too, is sent to the printer as if it were a character code to be printed. For example, to move the print position to the third column position on the page the required escape sequence is Esc HT 3. In BASIC this would be: LPRINT CHR$(27); CHR$(9); CHR$(3); Commands Margins and Formatting <Esc> <EM> n Paper input control <Esc> <FF> n Set page length <HT> Horizontal tab <Esc> <HT> n Absolute horizontal tab <Esc> 1 Set horizontal tab at current position <Esc> 8 Clear horizontal tab at current position <VT> Vertical tab <Esc> - Set vertical tab at current position <Esc> 2 Clear vertical Tab Stop at current position <Esc> <VT> n Absolute vertical tab <Esc> T Set top margin at current position <Esc> L Set bottom margin at current position <Esc> C Clear top and bottom margins <Esc> 9 Set left margin at current position <Esc> 0 Set right margin at current position <Esc> <Ctrl+L> n Set lines per page to n Carriage Movement <SP> Space <BS> Backspace <CR> Carriage return <Esc> ?

AFP - Advanced Function Printing
Sat, 13 Nov 2010 00:53:55 -0600

AFP is used on IBM Mainframes for page printers. It is an architected presentation function set of the Mixed Object Document Content Architecture (MO:DCA), which is part of IBM’s System Application Architecture. You don’t actually print with AFP. MO:DCA, IPDS (Intelligent Printer Data Stream) and other is used for printing. The information we have may be out of date, but it used to contain PTOCA (Print Text Object Content Architecture), GOCA (Graphic Object Content Architecture), IOCA (Image Object Content Architecture) as well as some other, non-SAA descriptors (simple image, for example). IPDS is IBM’s SAA printing language. It handles a variety of bit-mapped fonts, simple graphics primitives, and bit-mapped images. Because of the simplicity of the imaging model, it can be used to drive high speed laser printers. What's AFP in a nutshell? An architecture that defines the interchange of data. A collection of products to manage your information. Products for creating, indexing, viewing, distributing, and printing information. A way to distribute information directly to the people who need it, who then use the information in whatever format is best. A way to immediately enhance your line-printing applications and improve the print quality of your text and graphics applications. The solution for your information-presentation needs.
