Lexmark Firmware Update (September 2018)

IMPORTANT!

  • Check the device's current firmware level. EWS illustration
  • If you are aware of any firmware installed on the device that is not standard, please contact Lexmark Technical Support to receive additional firmware update instructions.
  • Review the release notes before making the decision to update firmware.

Downgrading firmware 

It is strongly recommended that you do not downgrade firmware to a lower level. A loss of apps, security features, configuration settings, and more, will likely result from this decision.
Again, contact Lexmark Technical Support and see KB article ID#: SO8017 for more information on the impacts of downgrading.
