    Hello we have a CD 102 4 L 96 model That came with a light pen. It was in a drawer and never used. Yesterday I connected to the console because I was curious how it works and if it's more convinient to use it but I didnt manage to do something. Do I need to take more actions than just connecting it?

    The pen is used to write ink zone settings into the consoles on board memory. After writing each unit into memory you must then send the settings from the memory to the ink fountains. The steps needed to do this are very specific, and would best be demonstrated in person. Find someone close to you familiar with the process, and let them demo it to you. Even if you have to pay someone to teach you ,I would consider it worth any reasonable cost, as it will allow you to save a good bit of time per make ready!!!
