Table 3-2 Key

[On Line]

Control Panel Key Functions Function
Switches the printer between ON LINE (communicating with the computer or other data source) and OFF LINE (not communicating). For the printer to receive data, both the On Line and Ready indicator lights must be on. Prints any data remaining in printers buffer. It cannot be used to send a blank sheet of paper through the printer. Selects the physical paper size loaded in the MP tray only when it is operating as a PC tray. Saves a selection in the printers permanent memory. An asterisk (*) appears next to the item to indicate that it is now the default. The selection remains even if the printer is switched off or you perform a reset. If buffered data or temporary data (such as temporary downloaded typefaces) are present, [Enter] only marks the items with an asterisk (*) as the default. When you press [On Line] or [Menu], the message 10 RESET TO SAVE appears. There are three choices: [Reset] RESET MENU [On Line] Clears page buffers (See the following table.) Clears page buffers Places the printer on line without performing a reset.
[Form Feed] [MP Paper Size] [Enter]

[Shift] [Menu]

Accesses the lower labels ( [Reset], [Continue], and [-]) on the control panel. It works like the [Shift] key on your computers keyboard. [Menu] cycles through the menu selections, returning to 00 READY at the end of the cycle unless an error, warning, or configuration problem is encountered. If an option such as PostScript or a different I/O has been added, that menu appears in the menu sequence. Continue ([Shift] + [Item]) allows the printer to resume printing after it has been placed off line due to an error condition or a device attendance request (such as 21 PRINT OVERRUN). The [Continue] key clears most error messages and places the printer back on line. It functions like the [On Line] key except: 1. Continue does not override an error condition. 2. Continue allows you to override the paper or envelope size selection regardless of what size media is in the MP tray. 3. Continue allows you to override a request to manually feed paper or an envelope; it will select paper from the next available source instead.

Parallel DOS Commands

Most IBM PC and AT compatible computers default to a parallel printer port. To ensure that information is sent to your parallel printer port, type the following MS-DOS command at your MS-DOS prompt or include it in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file: MODE LPT1:,,P For MS-DOS version 4.0 and above, enter: MODE LPT1:,,B Note This example assumes that you are using parallel printer port LPT1. If you are using LPT2 or LPT3, replace LPT1 in the example with the printer port that you are using.
Since the MODE command is an external MS-DOS command (a program named MODE.COM is run when the MODE command is invoked), the program file must be contained in the root directory, or in a directory specified in a preceding PATH command in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Note After changing the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, reboot the computer to initiate the changes.

Configuration 3-31

Serial MS-DOS Commands
Most IBM compatible computers default to a parallel printer port. To ensure that information is sent to your serial printer port, type the following MS-DOS commands at your MS-DOS prompt, or include them in your AUTOEXEC.BAT file. MODE COM1:9600,N,8,1,P MODE LPT1:=COM1 For MS-DOS version 4.0 or above, enter: MODE COM1:9600,N,8,1,B MODE LPT1:=COM1 Note These examples assume that you are using serial printer COM1. If you are using COM2 or COM3, replace COM1 with the the printer port that you are using.

3-32 Configuration

Printer I/O Configuration

Parallel Menu

The default setting for the High Speed Parallel I/O is YES. If it is set to NO, the interface runs at a slower speed that is compatible with older computers. When the default is set to YES, the parallel interface runs at a higher rate supported by newer computers. Advanced Functions The Advanced Functions feature of the printer enables bi-directional communications between the printer and the host. The default setting is ON. This default setting (ON) must be active in order to use LaserJet Explorer, the Windows Printing System, and other software applications and drivers.

Serial Configuration

Use RS-232C serial configuration when the printer is located 11 to 50 feet from the computer. If you need to locate the printer between 51 and 2000 feet from the computer, use an RS-422A serial configuration (not available on the LaserJet 4 Plus or 5). Since the default-printer I/O setting on the printer is parallel, remember to change the settings on the printer control panel for serial printing. Serial Protocol When printing with a serial configuration, the same protocol must be set on both the printer and the computer. Protocol on the printer is set by changing the control panel. Protocol on the computer is set by using DOS commands. The default protocol settings are described below. BAUD Rate The BAUD-rate setting tells the printer how fast information is transferred to and from the computer. The default BAUD rate setting is: BAUD RATE=9600*.

5-14 Functional Overview

PJL Overview
Printer Job Language (PJL) is an integral part of configuration, in addition to the standard Printer Command Language. With standard I/O cabling, PJL allows the printer to perform functions such as:
Allowing the printer to talk to the host computer through a
Bi-directional parallel connection. The printer can tell the host such things as the control panel settings, and allow the control panel settings to be set from the host. Dynamic I/O switching allows the printer to be configured with a host on each I/O. The printer can receive data from any I/O simultaneously. Context-sensitive switching allows the printer to recognize automatically the personalities (PostScript or PCL) of each host and configure itself to serve that personality. PJL can act as a spooler to print only sections of a print job as defined from the software. PJL allows any print job to be protected from the effects of the previous print job. If a print job is sent to the printer in landscape mode, the subsequent print jobs print in landscape only if they are formatted for landscape printing.

Functional Overview 5-15

Image Formation System
Laser printing requires the interaction of several different technologies (such as electronics, optics, and electro-photographics) to provide a printed page. Each process functions independently and must be coordinated with all other printer processes. The image formation process centers around the photosensitive drum and consists of six stages: 1. Cleaning 2. Conditioning 3. Writing 4. Developing 5. Transferring 6. Fusing
The toner cartridge houses the cleaning, conditioning, and developing stages of the electro-photographic (EP) process. Components of the image formation system that wear, degrade, or are consumed are built into the replaceable cartridge. The toner cartridge contains the photosensitive drum, primary charging roller, developing station, toner cavity, and cleaning station. This eliminates the need for a service call when replacement is required.

Figure 5-6

5-16 Functional Overview

Photosensitive Drum

The photosensitive drum is the heart of the Image Formation System. The special properties of this drum allow an image to be formed on the drums surface and then transferred to paper. The drum is an extruded aluminum cylinder. The outside of the cylinder is coated with a layer of organic-photoconductive material (OPC) which is non-toxic. The aluminum base of the photosensitive drum is electrically connected to ground potential (see Figure 5-7).

All Pickup Rollers and Separation Pad Transfer Roller Replacement Installing the Toner Cartridge
Servicing the printer involves replacing printed circuit and electro-mechanical assemblies. Do not repair component failures within these assemblies. In all instances, replace the failed assembly. The assembly procedure is the reverse of the removal procedure, except where specific instructions are provided. Caution Power-off the printer and disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the printer before servicing the printer. Some sheet metal edges, particularly around the formatter cage, are sharp. Be careful when working in these areas to avoid being cut. Note The printer contains parts that are sensitive to Electrostatic-Static Discharge (ESD). Always observe proper ESD procedures when servicing the printer. This symbol: appears in this chapter when the parts being serviced are especially susceptible to ESD damage.

6-2 Removal and Replacement
Table 6-2 describes the screws used in the printers, and provides guidelines to help determine where each type of screw is used. The screws can vary in length depending on the thickness of the material being fastened. Typically, plated screws are used in areas visible to the customer, and black screws are used in all other areas of the printer. Always note where each type of screw is located and replace each one into its original location. Table 6-2 DRAWING Printer Hardware Descriptions DESCRIPTION
