Abstract

This disclosure relates to electronic copiers and printers, and more particularly to an electronic form which is a full size footprint of the paper path of the copier or printer. This form would reside in the electronic control subsystem of the electronic copier or printer machine, and can be used when troubleshooting print damage problems in the machine. The form would be printed from the electronic control subsystem memory when a problem is being investigated. Damage to the actual prints can then be compared to the printed diagram of the paper path printed from the form.

ELECTRONIC FORM FOR Proposed Classification DIAGNOSING COPY PAPER US. C1.355/205 DAMAGE PROBLEMS
Int. Richard E. Nearpass C1. G03g 21/00

This disclosure relates to electronic copiers and printers, and more particularly to an electronic form which is a full size footprint of the paper path of the copier or printer. This form would reside in the electronic control subsystem of the electronic copier or printer machine, and can be used when troubleshooting print damage problems in the machine. The form would be printed from the electronic control subsystem memory when a problem is being investigated. Damage to the actual prints can then be compared to the printed diagram of the paper path printed from the form.

To be effective, the electronic form should depict, at full size, each front to back location (in the paper path) of paper path components that could cause damage to copy sheets or the prints as they pass through the paper path of the machine. By comparing the damaged areas of actual prints to the diagram, likely and possible sources of the damage in terms of components along the path can be discovered. Currently, footprints of the paper paths of such machines are available in reduced size, as part of the service hard copy documentation, and must be enlarged by a copier before use. Such enlargement is tedious and is not possible sometimes when working on an electronic printer that is not near a copier with enlargement capability.
