 Affected Products

  • MS, M, CX, XC, MX and XM products; i.e., MX811de
  • Forms and Barcode card or hard drive option  


Suggested remedy 

  1. Edit the .esc file to include an additional colon after the word flash.  
  2. Resend the file to the printer, for example, LPR -S -P print <Filename>. 

Revised .esc file example


JAR files that contain certain label text characters may get refused because of differing firmware architecture between product generations.
