Available Firmware Code (November 2013)


  • When updating your printer’s firmware, use an available combo-firmware file that incorporates both Base code ( .P328 or later ) and the latest Engine code.

NOTE: Do not update firmware using base code-only ( .P328 or later ) packages to avoid potential errors or issues that may render the device inoperable. For example, 980.11 Service errors when the device enters sleep mode.


  • For *DLE-equipped devices, typically the Engine code is updated first, and then continue with updating the DLE's Base code.

    *Downloadable Language Emulator (DLE) card; e.g., IPDS, Prescribe, ImageQuick, PrintCryption, or FMBC.
