When using 4 MB Flash Memory Card, the 8 MB program (C) must be divided onto 2 cards, one 4
MB card for the PCL Control Program (3), and one 4 MB card for the PCL Font data (4).
(3) For PS Option
The PS Control Program must be written into the 4 MB onboard, which is assigned as ROM Code
(D). The PS Control Program (6), and (7) are written into the 8 MB in the SLOT 1.
Both Firmwares (6), and (7) are assigned as ROM Code (E).
When using 4 MB Flash Memory Card, the 8 MB program (E) must be divided onto 2 cards, one 4
MB card for the PS Control Program (6), and one 4 MB card for the PS Control Program (7).
C. SPC PC Board Firmware
The 512 KB Program Memory (F-ROM) is integrated on the SPC PCB. The Programs for Scanner
Control, and Printer Control are saved on the Board. The Firmware is transferred as Serial Data from
the SC PCB.
D. Firmware Updating Ports
Three (3) types of Ports are available for updating the firmware.
(1) Ethernet LAN Port (The Quickest, and Most Easiest Method)
The machine's Firmware can be updated from a PC via Local Area Network (LAN). Refer to the
Firmware Update Operation Instructions, Service Notes (8.1.) for additional details.
(2) USB Port (Alternate)
The machine's Firmware can be updated from a PC via USB Port. The Master Firmware Card can
also be created from a PC using the USB Port. Refer to the Firmware Update Operation
Instructions, Service Notes (8.1.) for additional details.
(3) Flash Memory Card (Alternate)
The machine's Firmware can be updated using the Master Firmware Card. The Master Firmware
Card can be created by copying the Firmware from an existing machine's SC PCB using a 4 MB, or
8 MB Flash Memory Card.
To update the SC, SPC, and PNL PCB, 3 Flash Memory Cards are required for the Standard
configuration, or 5 Flash Memory Cards for the PCL, or PS/PCL configuration.
2.7.2.Updating through a LAN Port (The Quickest, and Most Easiest Method)
The firmware code can be easily updated when the main unit is connected to a LAN.
The Network Firmware Update Tool can also be used by connecting to the machine using a crossover
cable, if the unit is not connected to a LAN.
1) Install the Network Firmware Update Tool to your PC
The option CD-ROM includes the Network Firmware Update Tool, and the Main Unit Firmware Code.
Please refer to the following Operating Instructions to install the Network Firmware Update Tool.
The installation password is "workio".

2) Preparing the Firmware Code
Double click the appropriate Destination Shortcut Batch File, and copy the Firmware Code File on the
CD-ROM to the Firmware Data Folder in your PC. Note that the files in the Archive will be extracted
automatically into the designated folder when the Archived file (.exe) is Double-clicked.
