    Please, can you email me the flash program and the files for a DIGITAL LG09+ printer. I think it is a Printronix P5209 remarked. We don't have any documentation and cd. the printer is connected via Rapidprint 500 on network and parallel port. My email address is Mario.Fiorentino@assistitalia.it.Thank you.

I can email you the Flash Program.
If a “Table Mismatch” is displayed, recycle power and reflash the printer. Can get “Table Mismatch” after replacing CMX Board.
“Table Mismatch”
Flash Upgrade Instructions Using the printer’s Parallel Port: Have Ethernet? You can FTP download.
1. Print a configuration on the printer prior to the download. After the flash is upgraded, the printer will be at Factory settings and you will need this printout to restore any non- default settings.
2. The PTX flash code is on a CD you should have received with printer. Don’t have? I can email you the Flash program.
3. Turn the printer's power off.
4. If there is a cable connected to the printer’s serial port, disconnect it.
5. Connect a cable from the LPT1 port on a PC that has a DOS prompt mode to the printer’s parallel port.
6. While holding down the Online & FF(Paper Advance) keys, power up the printer. The printer will display "Waiting for Program Download".
7. At the PC’s DOS prompt, go to the directory where the file is located C:\Temp and
type "filename.exe -pb<ENTER>" where filename is the name of the file that you downloaded in step 2.
NOTE: there is a space before the -pb
8. The printer's display will keep you informed of the status of the download. When the download is complete, cycle the printer’s power.

The best way is to update the firmware in the copier. You have to download the current firmware and put it on a flash card and and plug it in to port 2 after powering down the copier. Power it back on and the firmware will set itself up to your copier.

Hp cm1312nfi printer problem error ready to download


The error is due to corrupt firmware and you need to reinstall it.
HP CM1312NFI Firmware Download & Instructions
Please visit the above link and Download the firmware.
"The HP Easy Firmware Upgrade utility provides the HP MFP firmware .rfu bundle and a user friendly method to transfer the .rfu file to the MFP all contained in a self-extracting executable for the Windows operating systems"

Please visit the above link and read all the instructions/ details and upgrade the firmware.
Process:
  1. Download the flash firmware updater file from HP.com to the PC desktop.
  2. Turn the printer off and then back on to clear main printer memory.
  3. Double click on the flash firmware update utility file. An HP firmware update window will open.
  4. Select the appropriate MFP in the dialog window. If you assigned a different name to the HP MFP, choose the name that represents the correct printer.
  5. Click on "Send Firmware" when ready to proceed.
  6. The progress bar will begin to move to the right indicating information being transferred.
  7. DO NOT power cycle the product or the pc during this process or the product may become unstable and or unusable without further attention from HP. The flash firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Please be patient.
  8. During the product flash firmware update, the display on the product control panel will display "Erasing - Programming - Complete - Hewlett-Packard - Ready - Initializing - Ready". Once the download is finished the printer will be in the Ready state.
  9. At the conclusion of the firmware update, the dialog window will show a smiley face. Click on exit.
  10. The flash firmware update process is complete.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

900 Firmware error on lexmark x544 what does this mean


Within your printer there is a micro-processor and a memory chip. The Firmware is a piece of software that is loaded to a memory chip.

Error of the software has occurred, you therefore may need to flash the firmware of the printer.
Find the Firmware on the Lexmark website, be sure to get the EXACT one for your printer.

Remember a failed attempt will render your printer useless, contact a professional to flash the fimware if you are unsure.

Thanking you

Hi good morning, I've a HP printer 4350 shown on the LCD 49.4C02 could you kindly advise what's faulty Thank you. Best Regards Stanley


Hi!
This is most likely caused by an error on a print job. This kind of error occurs most of the time with printing PDF files. What you could do is upgrade the firmware of you printer to the latest version. HP has a fix to this issue on the latest firmware for your printer model. You can download that firmware from the HP website.
If you have any more issues and concern please feel free to come back ask here at fixya.
You have a great day!

Flush problem zebra tlp2844


The firmware download utility program comes on the CD supplied with the printer. Use this to download the firmware file to the printer. Check on the zebra website for the latest firmware file. (You should be able to download the Download utility program from the website also. (Steady red may indicate that the printer is set to the incorrect operating mode. Check that you have the correct setting in your printer driver - Thermal Transfer if you use a ribbon, Direct Thermal if not) Easiest way to check is to insert a ribbon and see if printer works)

Error message come up on printer


Normaly a Check Sum fault will be displayed if the printer firmware has become corrupt or the flash memory may be damaged.
The first thing to try would be to reload the firmware into the pritner, if the firmware is corrupt this will rectify the problem.
If it is not possable to reload the firmware the main board may need to be repalced.

Dell 946 AIO printer won't stop beeping after firmware update attempt


Same thing happened to me....yesterday I went online at www.dell.com to download the latest firmware & driver for my Dell 946 Printer. After downloading the firmware the printer went haywire and is rendered useless. It emits beeps and the green power light will stay lit then flash every 3 seconds or so. There is no read-out on the lcd display.
I phoned Dell only to be told I should not have downloaded the firmware and that Dell does not recommend downloading firmware. If that is the case then why is the firmware listed on the Dell site with instructions to do so? I was advised that no support could be offered because the printer is out of warranty and was told to uninstall the printer and re-install. I have tried everything, including uninstalling printer, unplugging printer, etc. and nothing has helped. I have researched online and note that this is a recurrent problem. This problem is noted in the forums section of Dell.com - I have followed directions listed in the forum section of Dell.com as noted (see below websites) but this has not fixed the problem....

http://help.com/post/233917-dell-aio-946-printer-help

Since this seems to be a known problem and the problem is actually caused by downloading firmware from the Dell site I feel it is an injustice not to offer some type of support to rectify the problem. I have always bought Dell products and advised others to do so, but with this problem I feel that I will be changing my brand that I purchase.

I will be contacting Consumer Reports - I feel this warrants some type of recall!!

Solid red light after flashing firmware


These are the 3 things listed as being wrong for the status light being solid red:
1. Media is out. Reload a new supply. Press feed button to
continue.
2. Power-up failure. Switch power OFF then back ON.
3. Printer ready to receive flash programming during
firmware download.


There's a programming manual available for download on Zebra's website: https://www.zebra.com/id/zebra/na/en/index/resource_library/manuals.results.html
It might help.
