5.2.6 USB ID Input
2.
Stylus CX3100/3200 is equipped with the USB Interface as standard. As the USB Port
Driver controls the device through the USB ID on Windows98 or iMac, a proper USB
ID is assigned to this product. Since the USB ID is stored in EEPROM on the Main
Board, the USB ID needs to be input again when the Main Board has been replaced
with a new one. The USB ID is an 18-digit alphanumeric character string specific to
the machine, and recorded at the particular address on EEPROM. The USB ID is
determined at the factory as follows:
Read 10 digits serial number from manufacture plate on the back of Stylus
CX3100/3200 and input it and click the [OK] button. New USB ID is input to
EEPROM.
„ Manufacture process line No. (3 digits)
„ PC No. (2 digits)
„ Date (12 digits) -The built-in time data of the PC is used.
„ “0” (1 digit)
In repair, the 10-digit product serial number is used as the 10 digits of the new USB ID,
and the new USB ID is completed with an 8-digit character string which is produced by
Adjustment Program and automatically added to the serial number. Then input the new
USB ID in EEPROM on the new Main Board.

6.1.3 Maintenance of the Printer
6.1.3.3 Lubrication Points of the Printer
If print irregularity (dot missing, white line, etc.) has occurred or the printer indicates
“Maintenance Error”, take the following actions to clear the error.
The kinds and volume of the oils and grease for lubrication of the Printer are
determined based on factory evaluation. Therefore, be sure to apply a specified volume
of the designated grease to each designated point for repair and maintenance of the
Printer. The designated grease and application points are indicated below.
6.1.3.1 Head Cleaning
The printer has a built-in head cleaning function, which is activated on the operation
panel. Confirm that the printer is in the stand-by state (the power indicator is not
blinking). Select “Head Cleaning” by means of the Menu buttons on the operation
panel and execute it, and the printer will start head cleaning.
C A U T IO N
6.1.3.2 Maintenance Error
Ink is used not only for printing but also for other operations, such as cleaning. During
such an operation, the printer wastes a certain amount of ink and drains it into the waste
ink pad, and the amount of the waste ink is counted.
Once the amount of waste ink reaches the predetermined limit, the printer indicates
“Maintenance Request” and the waste ink pad must be replaced.
† Overflow Counter (Protection Counter) count up ≥ 23270
† Time for replacing the Waste Ink Pad
„ Never use any oil or grease other than designated, since any
other oil or grease can badly affect the machine life or function
of the product or damage the mechanism.
„ As the volume of application is also designated based on
evaluation result, be sure to apply the designated volume of
grease correctly.

When the total amount of waste ink reaches the predetermined limit, the printer
indicates “Maintenance Request”. (Refer to “TBD”). During repair operation,
check the overflow counter and the firmware version, selected code page and
nozzle check pattern.
If the ink counter value is close to its upper limit, notify your customer and
recommend that the waste ink pad is to be replaced. (If the waste ink pad is not
replaced at that time, “Maintenance Error” will occur just after the printer is
retuned to the customer.) Once you have the confirmation from the customer,
replace the waste ink pad.
† Replacement procedure
Refer to “Waste Ink Pad Removal” on page 49
† Treatment after replacement
Reset the Overflow counter (Protection counter). Turn on the power to the printer
and enter into the special menu (ordinary operation) and execute waste ink counter
reset menu or perform counter clear by the adjustment program. (Refer to
