  • Publication number: 20190283468
    Abstract: Provided is a printing apparatus that includes a printing unit, a conveyance belt that is stretched over a first roller and a second roller such that a tension is applied to the conveyance belt, and a control unit configured to perform on the conveyance belt a forward rotation operation configured to convey a medium in a conveyance direction and a reverse rotation operation configured to convey the medium in a reverse conveyance direction. When the reverse rotation operation has been performed during a print pause period and the tension at the end of the print pause period has changed from the tension when printing of a first image is complete due to the reverse rotation operation performed during the print pause period, the control unit corrects a rotation amount of the conveyance belt in a first rotation direction during printing of a second image.
