To enter in SERVICE MODE
1) Power off Printer

3) Hold the Power button, then release and 2 times press Resume button

To clean absorber counter,
7) Press "Resume" Button 4 Times and after press Power button. It's all! Your absorber count is EMPTY!

DO NOT press Resume 3 times and POWER. It will reset some EEPROM data settings
