Proposed is a system that can be used to convert flash based copiers into printers without losing the copy function. A full frame (full platen) reflective mode (no back light) Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) array is added to the copier in a configuration that allows the LCD to be positioned over the platen during the printer mode, but removed during the copier mode. In the printer mode, information is loaded into the LCD array, a page at a time, between exposure cycles. Once a LCD pixel is loaded, it remains in that state until reset.
