Adjusting the rear paper-edge guide and Dual Toner Mark/Side Verify Sensor

Procedure:

Do this procedure to adjust the rear paper-edge guides when you load forms, change paper sizes, and splice forms. The edge guide is also used to guide the paper in tractorless mode. You can also do this procedure when you want to move the side verify marks or registration marks and move the toner mark/side verify sensor to the corresponding position to read the mark.

  1. Loosen the thumbscrew (2).
  2. Slide the rear paper-edge guide (1) to the correct location for the current paper width. The paper should be positioned against the vertical surface of the guide (3) so that the sensor on the bottom side of the sensor mounting plate can read side verify marks and registration marks, which are printed on the outside edge of the paper.

  3. Tighten the thumbscrew (2).
  4. The thumbscrew (1) (below) adjusts the position of the sensor on the bottom side of the sensor mounting plate. The sensor in Printer 2 reads side verify marks and registration marks that were printed on side 1 of the form by Printer 1. If you move either mark from the default position, you must move the sensor to the correct position so that it can read the mark. You use the Special Marks panel to change the location of the mark (Forms -> Special Marks). To move the sensor, turn the thumbscrew clockwise to position the sensor to the appropriate position to read the new placement of the mark. Use the scale mounted on the sensor mounting plate (2) to position the sensor to correspond to the placement of the mark.
    1. For marks that are printed at the edge of the form (the default position), make sure that the sensor is positioned in the backmost position. The default Offset value specified in the Special Marks panel is set to 0.01. To do this, turn the thumbscrew counterclockwise until the reference edge lines up with the red line at position 0 on the scale (3) (which should be the most rear position where the thumbscrew stops turning).
    2. For marks that are printed between the tractor holes and the printable area of the form, make sure that the sensor is positioned to correspond to the Offset value specified in the Special Marks panel. For marks printed inside the tractor holes but not in the printable area, the Offset value should be set to 0.350. To do this, turn the thumbscrew clockwise until the reference edge lines up with the black line between 3 and 4 on the scale (4).
