The types of errors that could auto reboot include: The table below outlines the behavior for this printer series and may not apply to other models of the same code.
In the event that a new firmware update causes problems in the printer, the administrator or customer can roll the printer back to a previous state. When a new Controller Board is installed, the Lexmark default eSF applications and settings are loaded. The best practice is for an administrator to have their eSF applications and settings backed up prior to encountering a problem. If the Web page cannot be accessed, or an error persists despite trying to boot in Invalid Engine code mode, then there is no way to backup the eSF apps.
Make the customer aware of this. Before aligning the Printhead electronically, first mechanically align it. The printer series not mentioned does not have this FRU part. There are at least nine parts to be removed and important instructions to be followed closely upon installation.
If you must use one of the components listed above as a method of troubleshooting, boot the printer into Diagnostic mode only. Before inserting or removing a cable from these connectors, read this entire section carefully to avoid damaging the connector or cable. When installing the cable, check the locking actuator to ensure it is in the unlocked position. The tabs on the ends of the actuator are vertical when the actuator is unlocked.
The cable is inserted horizontally into the connector. Check the actuator to verify it is in the open position. Insert the cable into the ZIF connector with the contacts facing downward and away from the locking actuator.
The cable is inserted vertically into the connector. Rotate the locking actuator to the locked position by pressing down on both ends of the actuator. The cable should not move when this step is performed. If the cable moves, open the actuator, reposition the cable, and then close the actuator to the down position. Check the locking actuator to verify it is in the open position. If you are opening the connector, pull back on both end tabs using equal force to avoid breaking the connector.
When installing a cable into an LIF connector, care must be taken to avoid bending the edges of the cables and damaging the contacts on the cables. It is only available for the MX Series.

All checks and service work on the brake system should be carried out by an autho- rized Mercedes-Benz Center. Doing so may cause serious damage to the drive train which is not covered by the Mercedes-Benz Limited Warranty.
Simultaneously depressing the acceler- ator pedal and applying the brake re- duces engine performance and causes premature brake and drivetrain wear.

If you see flames or smoke coming from the engine compartment, or if the coolant tem- perature gauge indicates that the engine is overheated, do not open the hood. Move away from the vehicle and do not open the hood until the engine has cooled. Avoid environmental damage caused by oil entering the ground or water. Excessive oil must be siphoned or drained off.

Screw the cap back on the filler neck. The transmission fluid level does not need to be checked. If you notice transmission fluid loss or gear shifting malfunctions, have an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center check the automatic transmission.
In order to avoid any possibly serious burns: Use extreme caution when opening the hood if there are any signs of steam or coolant leaking from the cooling system, or if the coolant temperature gauge indi- cates that the coolant is overheated.

Failure to do so can re- sult in the bolts loosening and may lead to an accident. Life of tires The service life of a tire is dependent upon various factors including but not limited to: Driving style Tire pressure Distance driven Warning! Tires and spare tire should be replaced after six years, independently of the remaining tread.
Operation Tires and wheels Regularly check your tire pressure at inter- vals of no more than 14 days. Tire pressure changes by approximately 1. Keep this in mind when checking tire pressure where the temperature is different from the outside temperature. Follow recommend tire pressures. Do not overinflate tires. Overinflating tires can result in sudden deflation blowout be- cause they are more likely to become punc- tured or damaged by road debris, potholes etc.
Do not underinflate tires. Underinflated tires wear unevenly, adversely affect handling and fuel economy, and are more likely to fail from being overheated.
Have the tightening torque checked after changing a wheel. Wheels could become loose if not tightened with a torque of 96 ft. Only use genuine Mercedes-Benz wheel bolts specified for your vehicle's rims. Winter driving Before the onset of winter have your vehi- cle winterized at an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center. This service in- cludes: Check of anticorrosion and antifreeze concentration. Addition of cleaning concentrate to the water of the windshield and headlamp cleaning system.
Chains should only be used on the rear wheels. Follow the manufacturer's mounting instructions. Only use snow chains that are ap- proved by Mercedes-Benz.
