Next, the operation of the present embodiment will be described with reference to the flowcharts shown in FIGS. The operator stacks the sheet S on the sheet table 94 in a state where the sheet stack 92 is pulled out. When the sheets S have been stacked, the sheet stack 92 is inserted (Step 1). When the sheet stack 92 reaches a predetermined position, the micro switch 105 is pressed and the micro switch 1 is pressed.
05 is turned on, and the sheet stack 92 is stopped at that position by the stopper action (Step 2).

In response to the signal of micro switch 105 on, motor 97
Rotates forward (rotation in a direction to move the seat table 94 rightward in FIGS. 1 and 2), and the seat table 94 starts moving rightward (Step 3). When the seat base 94 reaches a predetermined position, the microswitch 107 is pressed by the protruding portion 94a and turned on (Step 4).
Is stopped (Step 5), and the motor 88 is rotated forward (the direction in which the middle plate 77 is raised) (Step 6). When the middle plate 77 reaches a little higher than the seat table 94, the right end side of the middle plate 77 The unit 77C turns on the microswitch 104 (Step 7). In this state, the sheet S has been delivered from the sheet table 94 to the middle plate 77.

In response to the signal of the micro switch 104 being turned on, the motor 97
Starts reverse rotation (Step 8), the seat table 94 moves to the left,
When returning to the predetermined position, the protrusion 94a of the seat table 94 turns on the micro switch 106 (Step 9), and at the same time, the motor
97 is stopped, the sheet table 94 stops, and stops at a position where sheets S can be stacked (Step 10). Lamp 115 in this state
(See FIG. 7) is lit to inform the operator that the sheet S needs to be replenished (Step 11).

On the other hand, in (Step 6), the middle plate 77 starts to rise by the motor 88, and when the sheet S stacked on the middle plate 77 pushes up the pickup roller 68, the protrusion 64a of the support plate 64 turns on the sheet height sensor 103. (Step 12). In response to this signal, the motor 88 stops and enters a paper feed waiting state (Step 1).
3).

Then, when the operator turns on the copy start key,
When the paper feed motor 57 (shown in FIG. 4) is started, the clutch 60 is turned on for a predetermined time at a predetermined timing, and the rotational force of the motor 57 is changed to the gears 58 and 59, the shaft 61, the pulley 62, the timing belt 67 The light is transmitted to the pickup roller 68 via the pulley 66 and the shaft 65. Then, the sheet S is fed to the separation unit 63 by the pickup roller 68, separated one by one, and the sheet S is conveyed to the sheet feeding path 69. (Step21). Further, the sheet S is conveyed from the paper supply path 69 to the paper supply path 23 through the conveyance path 49, is conveyed to the registration roller pair 26 by the conveyance roller pair 25, and is synchronized with the image of the copying unit 27 by the roller pair 26. Transported. Then, the image of the sheet S is copied by the copying unit 27, and the sheet S is transported to the fixing device 30 by the transport unit 29. Then, the sheet S is fixed with an image by the fixing device 30 by 30 and is conveyed by a conveying roller 31 to a flapper 32. Further, the sheet S is guided by a flapper 32 to a discharge roller pair 33, and the roller pair It is discharged out of the aircraft by 33. The sheet S is sequentially fed by the same operation, and the height of the sheet S decreases, and the sheet height sensor 103
The protruding portion 64a of the support plate 64 is separated from the sensor 103, and the sensor 103 is turned off (Step 22).

Then, in response to the off signal, the lift motor 88 starts forward rotation (Step 23), the intermediate plate 77 moves up, and the projection 64a turns on the sensor 103 (Step 24), and the lift motor 88 stops (Step 25). Further, when the desired number of sheets S have been copied (Step 26), the sheet feeding motor 57 stops (Step 27), and the copying operation ends. (Step 28) When the copying operation is repeated by the same operation and the sheet S is left on the intermediate plate 77, the photo interrupter 112 is turned off (Step 29). At this time, the above (Step1
In 1), when the sheet S has been replenished in the sheet table 94 that has run out of the sheet S (Step 29) or when the sheet S has not been replenished, the lamp 114 is turned on to wait for replenishment of the sheet S (Step 30). Reverse (Step3
1) When the middle plate 77 contacts the micro switch 108 (see FIG. 3) (Step 32), the lift motor 88 is stopped (St.
ep33).

Then, in response to the signal from the micro switch 108, the motor 97 starts normal rotation. That is, returning to (Step 3), (Step 3)
(4,5,6,7,8,9,10,12,13), the copy is held, and the second sheet storage 55 is lit by the lamp 115 to prompt the supply of the sheet S.

(G) Advantages of the Invention As described above, according to the present invention, the first and the second
1st and 2nd detecting the presence or absence of a sheet respectively in the sheet storage unit
Is provided, the first sheet detecting section detects that the sheets are stacked in the second sheet storage section,
When it is detected that there is no sheet in the sheet storage unit, it is possible to automatically move to the second sheet storage unit.
