1.2.6 Mechanism Specifications
1.2.6.1 Printable Area
The printer detects paper width when paper is set. (If paper width detection setting
is OFF, it does not detect paper width.)
It does not print the image beyond the detected paper width or the printable area
specified by paper size setting.
(It may print on the platen if paper width detection setting is OFF.)
Margins of roll paper can be changed on the panel as follows;
Top/bottom 15 mm, left/right 3 mm
Top/bottom/left/right 3 mm
Top/bottom/left/right 15 mm
NOTE:
Under special conditions, it is possible to set right and left margin (LM,
RM) to 0.
For borderless print, right and left margins are 3mm each because skew detection
limit is 3mm. If the distance from the paper edge to the platen (sponge width) is
less than 3mm, the maximum surplus print quantity without ink discharge onto the
platen (0mm~3mm) is printable area.

Selecting this mode allows the user to set the platen gap. The relationship between
panel setting, command setting (SN command), and actual platen gap position is shown
below.
Note 1: Only in this case, SN command is ignored. When paper thickness is 0.15mm, it is
operated with minimum Bi-D value and minimum SN(PG).
2: When “Wide” or “Wider” is set, “W” is displayed on the left side of LCD lower line.
3: When “Narrow” is set, “N” is displayed on the left side of LCD lower line.

The actual platen gap may be set to any of the following
1.4.3.4 Page Lines
Selecting this mode allows the user to set the page line print mode. Setup is the same as
horizontal lines ON command (AC 02H 00H 00H 02H) in the automatic cutting setup.
The solid line type is used.
1.4.3.5 Interface Select
Selecting this mode allows selection of the parallel, USB, or optional interface, or
automatic interface selection.
1.4.3.6 Code Page Switching
Selecting this mode allows switching between PC437 and PC850 for the code page.
1.4.3.7 Roll Paper Margin
Setting this panel allows switching roll paper margin, all sides 3 mm / all sides 15 mm
/ top and bottom 15 mm, right and left 3 mm. This setting is only valid for roll paper. It’
s not valid for sheets. This setting change only margin, and doesn’ t change image size.
If margin = 3 mm is set
Printing positions of vertical line and horizontal line are same as the theoretical
paper size.
If margin = 15 mm, or Top/Bottom15 mm is set
Printing positions of vertical line and horizontal line are widened by 12 mm for all
sides or only top and bottom. (See Figure 1-8)
If printable area is more than X = 15 mm from the right edge of paper, the portion is
clipped.
Vertical line is not printed. (See Figure 1-9)
NOTE 1: The top margin is also set with “Set the top margin” (SN command).
Actual top margin is decided as follows:
Panel setup value (top margin)>Paper top margin
(Panel setup value is used as the top margin)
Panel setup value (top margin)<Paper top margin
(Paper top margin is used as the top margin)
2:
Under special conditions, the right / left margin can be set to 0.
Table 1-30.

1.4.3.8 Detect Paper Width
When the paper width detection function is OFF, the printer can print on the platen if
the image to be printed is bigger than the set paper (larger than borderless print area).
Therefore the user must bear responsibility in selecting this function OFF setting. At
paper initial feeding or print starting, the paper is fed by the distance between grid
roller and #1 nozzle unconditionally. The print starts from that position. (No back-feed
in the other sequences) Even when paper has too low reflection to be detected, the
paper is fed so as not to print on the platen.
The same specifications are applied to sheets and auto loading.
The above-mentioned paper width detection OFF sequence is just for the first page in
the case of roll paper.
The paper auto cutting function does not check whether paper is cut successfully or
not.
1.4.3.9 Detect Skew Error
With PAPER NOT STRAIGHT = OFF setting, the “PAPER NOT STRAIGHT” error
will not be displayed and printing will be continued.
With this setting, even if the printing image is out of paper because the paper is not
straight, the printer will not inform the user of such an error. Therefore, the user must
bear responsibility in selecting this function OFF setting.
1.4.3.10 Job Timeout Setting
When print data is interrupted longer than setting time although data receiving is
available, the print job is regarded as the end, and the printer runs paper feeding
operation.

parameter of the paper feeding adjustment setting (SN 04) to be used as the
paper feeding adjustment value changes depending on the corresponding ID
value.
1. 01h ~ 40h Use the value of ID+50h as the paper feeding adjustment
value.
2. 41h ~ C0h Use ID as the paper feeding adjustment value.
3. C1h ~ FFh Use the value of ID-64h as the paper feeding adjustment
value.
NOTE: Designation of pigment/dye depends on ink type setting (NPD setting/IK).
System table
This table is not used during printing. The manufacture setting value is stored
to use as backup for user table.
How to change correction values
User table
The user table can be changed from the SN menu of Maintenance mode 1.

1.4.10.2 Ink Type Setting
In ink type setting during initial operation, dye ink will not be recognized if the switch
No. 6 of the DIP Switches (SWD600) on the Main Board of the printer.
There may be a case where "Ink Type" is not set (NPD=0) by ink detection at power on
(with the cartridges installed and without any other error). In such a case, check the
position of the switch No. 6 of the DIP Switches.
NOTE: When the power is turned off without the cartridges installed, NPD=0
will be maintained.
When switch No. 6 is OFF (dye prohibited)
When pigment has been installed
Sets "Ink Type" for the printer to "Pigment".
Initial charge is started if the initial charge flag has been set.
Every time the power is turned on after that, the printer will start as the
Pigment machine.
When dye has been installed
Displays "INVALID CARTRIDGE".
(The LEDs for all colors flash even when dye for only one color has been
installed.)
Does not set "Ink Type" for the printer. (NPD=0 is maintained)
NPD=0 even at the next start of the printer.
When switch No. 6 is ON
Determines the ink type from the ink set that has been installed properly.
If the printer is currently used as the dye machine (NPD=2), the printer does
not make judgment at power on. Therefore, the printer can be used as the dye
machine the same way as before.
Even when "Ink Type" is changed to "Dye" directly in NPD mode, the printer
can be used as the dye machine.

SPECIFICATION
Transmission mode: 8 bit parallel
Synchronization: By STROBE pulse
Handshaking: By BUSY and ACKNLG signal
Signal level: TTL level (IEEE1284Level 1 device)
Adaptable connector: 57-30360(amphenol) 36 pin or equivalent
NOTE: It is recommended to use as short an interface cable as possible.
CONNECTOR PIN ASSIGNMENT AND SIGNALS
For these signals, twist-pair wires are used, with the return side connected to the signal
ground.
Note 1: “-” is prefixed to each signal which is active at “LOW” level.
2: In/Out refers to the direction of signal flow from the printer's point of view.
3: The “return side” means twist-pair return, which is connected to the signal GND. For
interface, each signal is connected with a twist-pair wire and the return side is also
connected. For protection against noise, this cable is shielded and connected to the
chassis GND for each of the center machine and the printer.
4: All the interface conditions are based on the TTL level standard. Each of the rise time
and fall time is 0.2 µs or less.
5: See Figure 1-19 for details of signal timing.
