By being a firmware update 'early adopter', I'm accepting that I'm going to be used as a guinea pig by the manufacturer in question.
I may get great new features, speed improvements and other such benefits eventually, but really I'm just an unofficial beta tester.
Thanks - Rifty -- riftynet - put a dot after rifty I have the same problem with my Pixma IP2000, perhaps longer than you, but I haven't found any solution yet :-/ I cannot do anything with the printer.
Firmware is held in non-volatile memory devices such as ROM, EPROM, or flash memory.
Changing the firmware of a device may rarely or never be done during its lifetime; some firmware memory devices are permanently installed and cannot be changed after manufacture.
Common reasons for updating firmware include fixing bugs or adding features to the device.
This may require ROM integrated circuits to be physically replaced, or flash memory to be reprogrammed through a special procedure.
When I tried to print from it, it gave the following message: "Error No 69: The printer is updating the firmware. If this message appears again, update the firmware once more." If I try to turn off the printer with its own ON-OFF switch, it will not do so.
I have a Canon Pixma IP3000 inkjet printer which worked fine until I returned from a trip away.
This file is an “.exe” file, meaning that it will run a program.
When the firmware program opens it will automatically update any printer that needs updating.
However, there are a few reasons that not all firmware updates might be seen as firmware 'upgrades'...
