Abstract

Disclosed is a method to disengage brush cleaning elements from a flexible belt photoreceptor to allow image on image, multi-pass color development. The method to accomplish this disengagement is to separate the brush from the photoreceptor by sliding or pivoting a door into position between the cleaning brush and the photoreceptor. The moving door disclosed herein is a low cost, low mass method to disengage the brush from the photoreceptor without changing the photoreceptor belt path and without the complication of moving the cleaner housing.
