  • Patent number: 11960232
    Abstract: An image forming apparatus includes a rotatable photosensitive member, a charging member, a developing device, a transfer member, a brush, a driving source and a control portion. The control portion controls the driving source to execute an image forming process in which image formation on the recording material is executed and a non-image-forming process in which the photosensitive member is driven to rotate other than in the image forming process. The non-image-forming process between a first recording material and a second recording material, to which the image formation is executed following the first recording material, is defined as a first non-image-forming process, and the non-image-forming process between the second recording material and a third recording material is defined as a second non-image-forming process.

  • Patent number: 11951383
    Abstract: Using output of an inertial sensor, whether an operation device is in a swing state of being swung is determined. Whether the operation device is rotated in a first direction about a predetermined axis of the inertial sensor or a second direction opposite to the first direction, is determined. Whether the operation device is swung in an upward direction or a downward direction is determined. First processing is executed in at least either a case where the operation device is rotated in the first direction about the predetermined axis or a case where the operation device is swung in the upward direction, during the swing state. Second processing is executed in at least either a case where the operation device is rotated in the second direction about the predetermined axis or a case where the operation device is swung in the downward direction, during the swing state.
