Model: iRC2380i iRC2880 iRC2880i iRC3080 iRC3080i iRC3380 iRC3380i iRC3580 iRC3580i Ref No.: iRC3380-034 (F2-T01-NO1-10129-02) Date: November, 2009

Location: ITB assembly Subject: Prevention of the display 'Insert drum cartridge' from being wrongly displayed in low-temperature environment Detail: <Symptom> Before the value of DRM-Life of the drum cartridge [1] reaches 100, the message 'Insert drum cartridge' is wrongly displayed. (Conditions of possible frequent occurrence) a. Low temperature, low humidity environment (approx. less than 15 deg C/50%) b. The value of Life of the ITB unit is over 50% (Mechanism of detecting presence/absence of the drum) 1. Detect whether the current of the primary transfer roller [3] of the ITB unit [2] is not lower than the lower limit and implement the detection of drum rotation. Detection timing: 1. When turning on the power of the machine/2. When starting up from Sleep mode/3. When opening/closing the front door of the machine 2. Detect whether the charging current of the drum cartridge [1] is not lower than the lower limit. <Causes> In the case that the resistance of the internal primary transfer roller [3] is higher, as well as long period of use of the ITB unit [2], the current of the primary transfer roller [3] may be lower than the lower limit and cause wrong display.
