  • Code: 13
  • Display: ERR 13 PM OVER
  • Description: Polygon buffer was full when a command was received that uses the buffer
  • Causes: Polygon data was received in excess of the polygon buffer capacity. (CG buffer size is fixed at 18KB and cannot be increased or decreased.)
  • Remedy: If possible, disable polygon commands in the application side. This error cannot be corrected in the CG side and polygon commands must be disabled in the application side.
  • Code: 15
  • Display: ERR 15 AUTO FEED
  • Description: Sheet length is too short
  • Causes: With auto feed enabled for sorting, feeding to the detected data size failed.
  • Remedy: The sheet length is too short. Set a sheet of enough length.
  • Code: 16
  • Display: ERR 16 AUTO I/F
  • Description: Auto command type recognition failed
  • Causes: With AUTO command type setting, automatic recognition failed as communication could not be stopped because of handshake failure.
  • Remedy: 1. If the handshake setting in the host PC is known, match the plotter side to that setting. 2. If the application or the driver command type is known, set that command type directly without using the AUTO setting. 3. When command type is not known at all, check the command type using the dump function and switch to that command type directly.
  • Code: 20
  • Display: ERR 20 I/O
  • Description: RS-232C communication error
  • Causes:
  • Remedy: RS-232C interface conditions are set incorrectly. 1. Check the application in the host PC side or the interface conditions in the plotter driver side, and match the plotter setting to that of the host PC. 2. Switch to the USB interface.
    The cable in use is not compatible. 1. Change to a genuine cable. 2. Check the cable for broken wire or short circuits.
    A problem exists in the PC circuitry. Connect the plotter without starting the application. If en error occurs repeatedly when the plotter is turned on, suspect a problem in the PC circuitry. (This problem may be corrected when BIOS is upgraded.)
    Malfunction in the main PCB assembly. Perform a loop-back test. If the error persists, replace the main PCM assembly.
  • Code: 25
  • Display: ERR 25 BUFFERdump
  • Description: Data transmission to the PC failed in buffer dumping
  • Causes: Data transmission was attempted but the PC was not ready for receiving after 10 seconds. 1) The cable is not compatible. 2) Malfunction in the main PCB assembly. 3) RS-232C cable is not connected. 4) The port is occupied or otherwise closed by an application in the host PC side.
  • Remedy: 1) Change to a genuine cable. 2) Perform a loop-back test. If the error persists, replace the main PCB assembly. 3) Connect a cable (genuine cable is recommended). 4) Shut all applications in the host side so that dump data reception from the plotter is the only active application.
  • Code: 26
  • Display: ERR 26 I/F T26EST n
  • Description: Error in a loop-back test
  • Causes:
  • Remedy: Disconnect a lip-back connector. Attach the loop-back connector and perform the test.
    Malfunction in the main PCB assembly. n=1:RS-CD loop fault n=2:ER-CS, DR loop fault n=3:TX time-out n=4:Conveyor error (data jam) n=5:Error interruption detected. Suspect defective PCB assembly such as a broken wire and a defective serial controller built into the CPU. Replace the main PCB assembly.
  • Code: 27
  • Display: ERR 27 BUFFERover
  • Description: Data receiving buffer overflow
  • Causes:
  • Remedy: Handshake setting is incorrect (if RS-232C interface is used). 1. Check the application in the host PC side or the handshake setting in the plotter driver side. Match the plotter communication condition settings. 2. Switch to the USB interface.
    The cable is not compatible for hardware handshake. 1. Change to a genuine cable. 2. Check the cable for broken wire or short circuits.
    Handshake failure due to a malfunction of the main PCM assembly. Attach the loop-back connector and perform handshake test. If the error persists, replace the main PCB assembly (if RS-232C interface is used).
  • Code: 30
  • Display: ERR 30 OPERATION
  • Description: Illegal operation was attempted
  • Causes: Errorneous operation has been performed. 1) The attempted origin falls outside of the cutting area. 2) The origin will fall outside of the attempted cutting area. 3) The attempted axial compensation exceeds +/-45 degrees. 4) The attempted action requires a sheet (a motor-driven action). 5) Dumping or parameter plotting was attempted with a tool other than the pen. 6) Distance compensation was attempted on plot data. 7) Adjustment was attempted without a sheet. 8) Pen pressure adjustment was attempted without a sheet. 9) Landing adjustment was attempted without a sheet. 10) Geometric plotting was attempted without a sheet. 11) A new action was attempted when the same action is in operation. (The dump function has been used while the dumping is being executed.)
  • Remedy: These actions are prohibited and there are no remedies for them. 1) Change to a genuine cable. 2) Perform a loop-back test. If the error persists, replace the main PCM assembly. 3) Connect a cable (genuine cable is recommended). 4) Shut all applications in the host side so that dump data reception from the plotter is the only active application.
