HP Designjet Z6200 Photo Printer Series - Level of printer usage

Level of printer usage

Normal printer use means 6,000,000 Carriage Cycles (which corresponds to approximately 100,000 A0 prints on average). Under normal usage conditions, it will be approximately 5 years before the printer needs maintenance. If the printer is used more than the normal usage conditions, then it will need maintenance service much more frequently.
One of the EEROM counters is assigned to counting the number of carriage cycles. When certain components of the printer exceed this amount, the front panel displays the following message:
“Maintenance #1 required”
The following message is triggered depending on the total quantity of ink spitted in each Spittoon.
“Maintenance #2 required”
Once one of the maintenance advised messages is displayed, the preventive maintenance kit must be used to replace the most worn parts of the printer. Use Removal and installation as a guide to replace the necessary parts.
The following PM Kit covers both Maintenance advised messages:
