I would try re-running the firmware installation if you haven't. Last time I had a firmware problem like this I left the machine unplugged for a hour or two came back and re-tried it and the machine took the upgrade fine the second time.

Even though the printer appears idle it will not take a firmware update until you erase all the voice messages from memory and clear the outgoing voice message.
