Lexmark regularly releases firmware updates. Keeping the printer firmware up to date is essential to enhance the printer performance and/or fix printer issues.
Note: The Instructions below are for the current generation of devices. If the instructions do not match with your printer, then see Firmware Update Instructions (Legacy Devices).
When connected to the internet, many Lexmark printers can check for and upgrade firmware directly from the Embedded Web Server.
Option 1 - Using the Embedded Web Server
Note: Make sure that the printer is connected to the network.
Option 2 - Printing the Device Information Report
Option 3 - Viewing from the printer display
Note: The information appears only for a few seconds.
Option 1 – Using the Embedded Web Server
Option 2 – Using the flash drive
The flash drive contents appear automatically on the printer display. If the files do not appear, then select USB Drive on the home Screen.
