C. Operational descriptions
The OPC drum surface is negatively charged by the main charger.
The laser beam images are radiated to the OPC drum surface by
the laser unit to form latent electrostatic images.
1) The OPC drum surface is negatively charged by the main
charger.
The main charger grid is provided with the screen grid. The
OPC drum is charged at a voltage virtually same as the volt-
age applied to the screen grid.
2) LED lights are radiated to the OPC drum surface by the laser
unit to form latent electrostatic images.
When LED lights are radiated to the OPC drum CGL, negative
and positive charges are generated. 
Positive charges generated in CGL are attracted to the nega-
tive charges on the OPC drum surface. On the other hand,
negative charges are attracted to the positive charges in the
OPC drum aluminum layer. 
Therefore, positive charges and negative charges are bal-
anced out on the OPC drum and in the aluminum layer, reduc-
ing positive and negative charges to decrease the OPC drum
surface voltage. 
Electric charges remain at a position where LED lights are not
radiated. 
As a result, latent electrostatic images are formed on the OPC
drum surface.
3) After transfer operation, remaining toner is removed by the
cleaning blade.
Residual toner removed from the OPC drum surface is trans-
ported to the recycle toner collection section in the toner car-
tridge by the waste toner transport screw.
4) All the surface of the OPC drum is discharged by laser beams.
After completion of the job, laser beams are radiated onto al
the surface of the OPC drum.
When laser beams are radiated onto the CGL of the OPC
drum, positive and negative charges are generated.
Positive charges generated in CGL are attracted to the nega-
tive charges on the OPC drum surface. On the other hand,
negative charges are attracted to positive charges in the alu-
minum layer of the OPC drum.
Therefore, positive and negative charges are balanced out on
the OPC drum surface and in the aluminum layer, reducing
positive and negative charged to decrease the surface voltage
of the OPC drum.
