    Question Scanner Position Tool

    Just looking in C360i service manual.

    Under 'Service Tool' what is a Scanner Position Tool ( A79JPJG0 )

    I cant find any other info on it.

    Is it to make physical adjustment to the scanner in case its skewed?

    24 years working on Konica Minolta machines and I have only used one of those jigs 1 time. Yes it made it easier but something I found that seems to work very well is to take measurements from a know good working machine and transfer those measurements to the broke machine. Even doing the measurement thing I have only had to do this twice. Not sure we have just been lucky in that our scanners do not go out of adjustment or what. Myself, for the most part an unseeded tool, of course until you need it.

    Agree with mincopier. Never heard of it because I've never had to do the adjustment. I have a lot of customers with the C220 series and never heard of that adjustment. When / why is it done?

    Re: Scanner Position Tool

    Back in the analog days when you scanned once per printed page, it was not uncommon to find a snapped scanner wire rope. In my very first Mita DC-313Z class we removed and re-installed scanner wire ropes. I've probably changed 5 or 6 sets of scanner wire ropes on analogs, and maybe another 5 or 6 restringings on digital MFPs with catastrophic scanner damage. The Ricoh AF-650 was known for shearing off the screws that retain the scanner drive drum, then driving only one side if the mirrors. All that flailing around was very damaging for the scanner. I still have a dozen grade8 Allen screws to replace the original screws in my tool case. I hope I never get to use them. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    There are mechanical scanner and PH skew adjustments on i-series. But this Jig is only mentioned in Service tools, I hope we never need it but it's there.
    I could imagine if one purchase it will come with detailed instructions how to use it.

    Go back to the eighties and the ubix (early Konica) 450. Optics cables snapped so regularly we carried them as part of our car stock!

    We all got to be experts at fitting them.

    Re: Scanner Position Tool

    anyone remember the Di520/620 sliding scanner beds?
    when doing the cables there were screws to remove and the whole scanner section would slide forward on tracks to gain access.
    those days were a trip.

    The tool is used for when you are moving the machine to another location to prevent damage to the scanner unit. Well that's what we were told on the remote training
