    what happened was that someone tried to print on it while the update was taking place. Yes I know that the embedded OS is interrupted. what I dont know is how to fix it. Where is the firmware stored? Is it on the atmel card at the back or in the removable 24lc256 eprom?

It will need servicing - you have only got half an OS loaded on it. That's why they warn you 'do not switch off or interrupt' when you are doing firmware upgrades.

Playstation 3 won't load after apparent interruption during update.

Unplug and leave unplugged for 12 to 24 hours (i.e. ''overnight''). Do a search for a firmware update (not a ''regular'' data update). Download Firmware update and prepare as per instructions. Plug in Playstation, but don't try to ''load'' a game or anything. Perform the firmware update. If there are no firmware updates for it, attempt to install the same firmware as is current. You'll get a message that the firmware is up to date. Then exit the firmware installation, reboot the unit, and then try to load a game.

My printer is stuck in "Ready 2 download" mode.

You get that error when you are trying to upload the firmware and the printer power was interrupted.
1. Close the firmware update tool on the computer if it is still active on the screen, and then turn off the product. 2. If the product is on a network, connect a USB cable (2 meters or less) from the product to an open port on the computer. HP recommends that this be a direct connection instead of through a hub. 3. Turn on the product, and then wait for the message ready 2 Download to appear. 4. On the computer, cancel any alerts about a new device being connected. 5. On the computer, open the Printers and Faxes control panel. 6. Right-click the printer driver for the product model that is being updated, and then click Properties. 7. In the Properties dialog box, click the Ports tab. 8. Note the name of the port that the product is currently connected to for use later when reconnecting at the end of this process. 9. Click the check box next to USB001. If USB001 is already connected to another USB device, click USBXXX where "XXX" is the highest-numbered USB device that has a description of "Virtual printer port for USB". Using the scroll bars on the right side of the window might be necessary, depending on the number of devices installed. 10. Click OK to accept the change and apply the settings. 11. Restart the firmware update tool on the computer, and then select the same product that was just created. 12. Start the firmware download. 13. Verify that the control panel display shows Erasing and then Programming, indicating that the update process has begun. Do not interrupt the firmware update process. 14. The product should momentarily show the message Complete. Turn the product off and then back on. The product will not automatically reboot. 15. When the product reboots, on the computer, cancel any alerts about a new device being connected. 16. Print a configuration page to verify that the update occurred. 17. Return to the Printers and Faxes dialog box, right-click the printer driver for the product model that
is being updated, and then click Properties 18. In the Properties dialog box, click the Ports tab. 19. Click the check box next to the previous port to which the product was connected before the update began.

Never ever touch the printer while upgrading the firmware.
You now need to replace the formatter
  • DO NOT power cycle the printer or the PC during this process or the printer may become unstable and or unusable without further attention from HP . The firmware update can take up to 5 minutes to complete. Please be patient.
  • During the printer firmware update, the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the printer control panel will display "Printing Document" and will change to "Erasing". After a short while, the LCD display will change to "Programming". After a short while, the LCD will display "complete : )" and the "Ready" LED on the printer will be flashing. The printer will automatically power cycle to reboot and will make noises similar to power on.

Error when printer is turned on

It could be that someone has tried to update the firmware and has
interrupted the process before it had finished.If this has not been the
case you could try updating the firmware go to Sony's website or do a search on the internet for Snaplab firmware update and you will see Sony's information. Download the firmware relervant to your machine going by its serial number on the back .Save this to your hardrive then
connect your printer and follow their instructions but do not switch it of halfway through as this can ruin the machine permanantly.
It could be a damaged ribbon sensor although fairly cheap to buy if you
can get one is a big job to fit. We have had faulty ribbons that have caused a similar problem so try a different batch of ribbon.
