SOURCE: Table Mismatch Download Again (Printronix P5215)

Hello, I can get your printer running... First tell me what your original problem was before you got the Table Mismatch Download Again" error. What part did you replace? What is the flash code # you used? See my image on HB NOT INSTALLD message I have been repairing and refurbishing the P5000series Line Printers for over 6 years... If I can get a little more history on that printer... I'll have it fixed. Have a good day! LineMatrix

I'm sure you have fixed your printer by now... but reflash the printer.

Flash memory is contained in SIMMs (single in-line memory modules) located
on the controller board. Printer emulation and operating system software are
loaded into flash memory at the factory, but you will install software in some
situations:
• The customer buys the PGL or VGL graphics, Expansion-CT, or IPDS
option after the printer is installed
• The customer needs to upgrade printer software
• The customer needs different emulation software
• You have replaced the controller board
• You have added or replaced the flash memory SIMM
Emulation and operating system software are stored as a compressed file on
a 3.5 inch floppy diskette. This file is “executable.” You will expand it and copy
it into printer flash memory.
You can load software through the serial, parallel, or Ethernet port of the
printer.
1. If the printer has an Ethernet interface, refer to the PrintNet User’s Manual
for the download instructions. You are finished with this procedure. If you
are going to load memory through the serial or parallel port, continue with
this procedure.
2. Make a printout of all saved configurations. (Refer to the User’s Manual.)
(Installing new software erases all saved configurations. You will use the
printouts to restore printer configuration.)
3. Set the printer power switch to O (off).
4. If the printer is already connected to the serial or parallel port of a
computer capable of running an MS-DOS® based PKZIP® self-extracting
file, go to step 11. If not, go to step 5.
5. Unplug the AC power cord from the printer.
6. Disconnect all data input cables from the printer interfaces.
7. Connect a parallel data cable to the LPT1 port or a serial data cable to the
COM1 port of an IBM-compatible computer that is using the PC-DOS™ or
MS-DOS operating system.
NOTE: You can connect the cable to the LPT2 port if the LPT1 port is alreadyin use. The load commands are different if you use this port, as
described in the note after step 18.
8. Connect the data cable to the appropriate I/O port of the printer.
9. Plug the AC power cord into the printer.
10. Power on the computer.
11. Insert the emulation or upgrade diskette into diskette drive A (or B) of the
computer.
12. Make the diskette drive the active drive by typing the following at the DOS
prompt:
A:<return> (If the diskette is in drive B, type B:<return>)
13. Get the name of the compressed file on the diskette by listing the
contents of the diskette; at the DOS prompt type:
DIR<return>
The compressed file on the diskette takes the form FILENAME.EXE
Now write down the complete name of the file with the .EXE extension.
14. On the printer control panel, press and hold down the ON LINE + PAPER
ADVANCE keys. Without releasing the keys, power the printer on.
Continue holding the ON LINE and PAPER ADVANCE keys down for five
seconds, then release them.
NOTE: The port default is CENTRONICS; this is the standard load through
the parallel port. If you want to use the default, continue at step 18.
15. When you see “WAITING FOR PROGRAM DOWNLOAD” on the LCD,
press the < (NEXT) key. “SELECT DOWNLOAD PORT =
DATAPRODUCT” appears on the LCD.
16. Press < (NEXT) again to cycle through the download ports available in
the printer:
DATAPRODUCT (parallel)
CENTRONICS* (parallel) (default port)
RS232-9600 (RS-232 serial, 9600 baud)
RS232-19.2K (RS-232 serial, 19200 baud)
RS232-38.4K (RS-232 serial, 38400 baud)
RS232-115K (RS-232 serial, 115000 baud)
RS422-9600 (RS-422 serial, 9600 baud)
RS422-19.2 (RS-422 serial, 19200 baud)
RS422-38.4K (RS-422 serial, 38400 baud)
RS422-115K (RS-422 serial, 115000 baud)
17. When the printer download port you want to use is displayed on the LCD,
press ENTER. “WAITING DOWNLOAD / PORT = <your selection>
appears on the display.
18. At the DOS prompt on the computer type:
FILENAME.EXE -pb<return>
where FILENAME.EXE is the compressed file you noted in step 13. This
command decompresses the file on the diskette and copies it as a binary
file into the flash memory on the printer controller board.
NOTE: If you are loading the file using the LPT2 port on the computer, enter
the following DOS command:
FILENAME.EXE -pb 2 <Return>
The 9600 baud rate is the only selection older versions of DOS can
use. The baud rate information entered in the following DOS
commands must match the selection you made in step 16.
the load process and status. (LCD messages are listed in Table 2,
page 37.)
CAUTION Do not interrupt the downloading process once it has started.
Interrupting a download will damage the flash memory on the controller
board and PrintNet card ( if installed).
19. When the new program has successfully loaded into memory and the
printer has reset itself, set the printer power switch to O (off).
20. Unplug the AC power cord from the printer.
21. Remove the diskette from the computer and store it with the printer.

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.

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:

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)

Flash a printer


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.

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://en.community.dell.com/forums/p/19261215/19444405.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=RC1009777&s=fed

http://en.community.dell.com/forums/t/19167220.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=RC1009777&s=fed

http://www.fixya.com/support/t416532-dell_946_aio_printer_stop_beeping_after

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.
