Firmware is available to all Printronix dealers to re-flash printers. The dealer needs to know the as-shipped configuration regarding interfaces and emulations in order to select the correct firmware file.
You must use the correct driver for the system in order for it to work correctly. Drivers are available for download directly from Printronix at their we site.
Drivers and firmware are two completely separate issues.

I emailed 2 different Emulation files... Let me know if you receive an error. If you get Flushing Ques after you started the download, then you don't have enough Dram memory, Flash memory or Security Pal chip needs a specific Emulation file.
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.
