Abstract

A photoreceptor 1 is provided with a charging station 3, an imaging station 5, a developing station 7, a transfer station 9 and a cleaning station 13. The charging station 3 charges the photoreceptor to a value which would be likely to cause electrical breakdown at the developing station 7. A dis-charging device 21 is therefore provided to reduce to some extent the areas of the photoreceptor remaining at a high charge voltage before development takes places The extra high charging of the photoreceptor increases the sensitivity of the photoreceptor during imaging.
