Safety Precautions
All safety procedures described here shall be strictly adhered to by all parties servicing and maintaining this product.

DANGER
Strictly observe the following cautions. Failure to comply could result in serious bodily injury or loss of life. 1. Always disconnect the product from the power source and peripheral devices when servicing the product or performing maintenance. 2. When performing works described in this manual, do not connect to a power source until instructed to do so. Connecting to a power source causes high voltage in the power supply unit and some electronic components even if the product power switch is off. If you need to perform the work with the power cable connected to a power source, use extreme caution to avoid electrical shock.

WARNING
Strictly observe the following cautions. Failure to comply may lead to personal injury or loss of life. 1. Always wear protective goggles for disassembly and reassembly to protect your eyes from ink in working. If any ink gets in your eyes, wash your eyes with clean water and consult a doctor immediately. 2. 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.

PRECAUTIONS
Strictly observe the following cautions. Failure to comply may lead to personal injury or damage of the product. 1. Repairs on Epson product should be performed only by an Epson certified repair technician. 2. No work should be performed on this product by persons unfamiliar with basic safety knowledge required for electrician. 3. The power rating of this product is indicated on the serial number/rating plate. Never connect this product to the power source whose voltages is different from the rated voltage. 4. Replace malfunctioning components only with those components provided or approved by Epson; introduction of second-source ICs or other non-approved components may damage the product and void any applicable Epson warranty. 5. The capacitors on the Main Board may be electrically charged right after the power turns off or after driving motors which generates counter electromotive force such as when rotating the PF Roller or when moving the CR Unit. There is a risk to damage the Main Board if the Head FFC is short-circuited with the capacitors on the Main Board electrically charged, therefore, after the power turns off or after motors are driven, leave the printer untouched for approximately 30 seconds to discharge the capacitors before starting disassembly/ reassembly. 6. To prevent the circuit boards from short-circuiting, be careful about the following when handling FFC or cables. When handling FFC, take care not to let the terminal section of FFC touch metal parts. When connecting cables/FFC to the connectors on circuit boards, connect them straight to the connectors to avoid
slant insertion.

Purpose Risks if the adjustment is not correctly made Procedure To measure the manufacturing variation of the DC motor (Scanner) to determine the correction value used for estimating the current value of the motor. Because the printer cannot measure the current value of the motor accurately, even if just a mechanical load with which the Scanner Carriage can operate without any problem is applied, the printer cannot control the drive of the motors correctly, which may result in occurrence or generation of scanner fatal error, vibration, or noises. 1. Select from the menu of the Adjustment Program and press the “Perform” button to measure the correction value. 2. Turn off the printer and turn it back on. After the Scanner Carriage is operated, the correction value is automatically measured and the measurement value is written to the EEPROM on the Main Board. 3. Press the “Check“ button to confirm the written value in the EEPROM is within the standard range.

3.3 Mechanism Adjustment / Check
This section provides the procedure for the mechanism adjustment and check.

3.3.1 Checking the Platen Gap
This section describes the procedure for checking the platen gap (PG). This printer does not have any PG adjustment mechanism, however, it is designed so that the platen gap can fall within the expected range if you correctly reassemble the unit (including using the Epson-specified jigs) according to this manual. If the PG cannot fall within the standard range after performing the platen gap check described in this section, first check if the unit is correctly reassembled following the instructions in this manual. Even if the unit is correctly reassembled but the PG still cannot fall within the standard range, replace the unit with a new/refurbished one. The standard range of the PG is as follows: • Standard: 1.75 ± 0.25 mm Tools Thickness gauge: 1.5 mm (x2), 2.0 mm (x2) Confirmation procedure When checking the PG, make sure of the following. Check the PG with new ink cartridges installed to the CR Unit, and also with all parts related to the PG installed to the printer (p 42). Move the CR Unit by pulling the CR Timing Belt. Be careful not to damage the nozzles of the Printhead with the thickness gauge. 1. Move the CR Unit to the center of the printer. 2. Place the thickness gauges (1.5 mm) on the positions shown in Figure 3-1.

If the CR Unit comes in contact with the thickness gauges, the PG is smaller than the standard value, therefore, check if the unit is correctly reassembled. If not, reassemble the unit and perform PG check again. (If the unit is correctly reassembled, replace the unit with a new/refurbished one.) 4. Move the CR Unit to the center, and replace the thickness gauges (1.5 mm) with the thickness gauges (2.0 mm) on the same positions as Step 2. 5. Pull the CR Timing Belt to move the CR Unit to both ends and confirm the CR Unit touches the thickness gauges. If the CR Unit does not come in contact with the thickness gauges, the PG is greater than the standard value, therefore, check if the unit is correctly reassembled. If not, reassemble the unit and perform PG check again. (If the unit is correctly reassembled, replace the unit with a new/refurbished one.) Adjustment Mechanism Adjustment / Check 49 Confidential

3.3.2 CR/PF Belt Tension Check
This section describes the CR/PF Belt tension check. This printer is designed so that the each tension of the CR Timing Belt and PF Timing Belt fall within the expected range if you correctly reassemble the unit according to this manual. However, deformation of any related part(s) can cause improper tension of the belt. In such case, replace the unit with a new/refurbished one. The standard tension range is as follows: • CR Timing Belt: 10.5 ± 1 N • PF Timing Belt: 4 ± 1 N Tools Sonic tension meter Plastic tweezers Confirmation procedure When performing the CR/PF Belt tension check, make sure of the following. Bring the microphone of the sonic tension meter within 5 mm from the timing belt but do not let it touch the belt. Flip the timing belt as weak as the sonic tension meter can measure it. Be careful not to damage the timing belt when flipping it with the plastic tweezers. Checking the CR Timing Belt Tension Perform the CR Belt tension check after performing " 3.3.1 Checking the Platen Gap (p49)".

1. Move the CR Unit to 0-digit side. 2. Set the following parameters to the sonic tension meter: 1.1 kg/m Weight: Width: 3 mm Span: 326 mm 3. Bring the microphone of the sonic tension meter close to the position shown in Figure 3-2. 4. Press the “MEASURE” button of the sonic tension meter and flip the upper of the CR Timing Belt with plastic tweezers and measure the tension of the belt three times. 5. Check the average of the measured values falls within the standard range. Within the standard range: the CR Timing Belt tension check is complete. Out of the standard range: replace the unit with a new/refurbished one.
