Enhancements

The following new functionality or features are provided by this firmware release (Datecode: 20100306 48.121.4):

Base Product
  • HP has implemented a new method of page counting (known as Print Usage Tracker), which can be enabled if desired. The administrator or owner of the product has the option either to enable the new counting method or to do nothing. If the new counting method is enabled the device cannot return to the previous counting method. It is important to understand this. If the feature is not enabled, nothing will change on the device and it will continue to count pages the same as it originally did from the factory

    Background:

    Current page counting methods were designed to enable efficient service and support. The Print Usage Tracker feature implements new page counting methods which are more aligned with today’s job accounting needs.

    Additional information:

    For more information about the Print Usage Tracker feature, visit, www.hp.com/go/support. Navigate to the SUPPORT AND DRIVERS page web page for your product, or search by name or model of your device (for example, HP Color LaserJet CM3530 MFP or model number CC520A). Once you have located your support page search for “Print Usage Tracker”. Additional information may also be obtained by contacting your regions HP Customer Support Center. This information can be located in the “User” manual that came with your product documentation or on the CD-ROM.

    How to enable the feature:

    If desired, use the following steps to enable the new page counting method (known as Print Usage Tracker) via the product’s Embedded Web Server.
    1. Update your device firmware to this release or greater.

    2. Once this is done the Print Usage Tracker acceptance and activation screen will be available from the product’s Embedded Web Server (EWS) at the following location: EWS, Settings, Security, Device Security Settings, Print Usage Tracker.

    3. Review the acceptance screen so that the changes are understood and you are comfortable with how the changes may or may not affect your HP device or product use model.

    4. If you are comfortable with the acceptance statements and the new counting functionality, choose to enable the feature. As stated previously it is very important to understand that once enabled the device cannot return to the previous counting method.

      1. Select I Accept.

      2. Select Enable the Print Usage Tracker feature on this device.

      3. Press Apply.

    NOTE: Currently this functionality can only be enabled through the product’s Embedded Web Server (EWS). In the future, HP will provide the ability to enable this functionality through HP’s Device management software called HP WebJet Admin. The WebJet Admin support pages can be accessed at www.hp.com/go/webjetadmin .
  • A new feature has been added which will allow the administrator to configure the device to auto recover from intermittent 49.XXXX errors. With this release, the feature will be enabled ON by default.

    For Single function devices, you will find the selection under the following menu: CONFIGURE DEVICE, SYSTEM SETUP, Auto Recovery.

    For M Series Multifunction Devices you will find the selection under the following menu: ADMINISTRATION, MANAGEMENT, Auto Recovery.

Firmware revision 48.041.4

CAUTION: When this update is performed, a manual power cycle will be required. This means that someone must manually turn the power of the device off and on using the power switch. No methods that are available to remotely power cycle the device will work. Only turning the power switch “off” and back “on” will finish the update process.

It is important to note that the device will still receive faxes and in most cases, a user will be able to send a fax, digital send, copy and print while in this state. The update process will not be complete until the power switch has been turned “off” and “on” and the mfp comes to a READY state. This means that certain issues and behavior changes addressed by this update will not be available until update is complete. HP highly recommends not leaving the device in this state and power cycling to assure correct product behavior.

How do we know the device requires a power cycle?

The users of the device are informed of the need to power cycle by a message on the HP Easy Select Control panel which states that the Upgrade is complete and to turn the device “off” and then “on”. A “Hide” button will also be available on the screen which will allow a user to hide the screen to make a copy, perform a digital send or send a fax but it will not finish the update until the power cycle has been performed. It is important to realize that because the device has not completed its update there may be some circumstances where not all features may work as expected.

NOTE: A security enhancement in a previous release may prevent the automatic power cycle at the end of an RFU (Remote Firmware Upgrade). The firmware will not actually upgrade until the unit is power cycled, although it will display “Receiving Upgrade” during transmission. This can be avoided by clearing the PJL password prior to sending the upgrade, or by manually power cycling the unit after sending the RFU file.

Enhancements

The following new functionality or features are provided by this firmware release (Datecode: 20071002 48.041.4):

Base Product
  • An enhancement allows the keyboard language/layout to be selected independently from MFP Language. The new menu item is Keyboard Layout in the Device Behavior menu for M- series products and Systems Setup menu for non-M-series products. A new keyboard layout option of Swiss/French (QWERTZ) was also added.

  • The default orientation for letter documents placed on the flatbed was changed from Letter - R / A4-R (Short Edge Feed) to Letter / A4 (Long Edge Feed). The change was made because feedback from many customers indicated that Long Edge Feed (Letter / A4) was the expected orientation for placing Letter originals on the flatbed.

  • The ability to define Letter -R (Short edge fed) as a Default original size has been added. The selection can be made from the following menu: ADMINISTRATION>DEFAULT JOB OPTIONS> DEFAULT OPTIONS FOR ORIGINALS> Paper Size.

  • Expand Kerberos username field limited to accommodate long UserPrincipalName entries.

  • Enabled the ability to logon with UserPrincipalName without specifying a domain.

    Note:

    This release includes the ability to automatically adjust for daylight saving time. HP strongly recommends this be configured via the EWS (Embedded Web Server) or WebJetadmin (it is not possible to verify all DST settings via the control panel or menu map). Selecting your time zone will automatically set the appropriate start and end dates for daylight saving time. After configuration, settings can be verified from the EWS as follows:
    • Select the Settings tab from the top of the EWS (password may be required)

    • Select Date and Time from the left side of the Settings Page

    • Select Advanced

    • Select Start Date/End Date

    • Verify the Start Date, End Date, and DST Offset settings are correct for your time zone

    Accessing the EWS:
    • Open your web browser

    • In the Address or Go To field, type the Internet Protocol (IP) address that is assigned to the product (for example, http://192.168.1.1) or the host name (for example, NPI474283 )

    • If the Information tab is the only one at the top of the page, your administrator has restricted access by setting an EWS password

Analog Fax
  • The fax header now supports multi-byte characters.

  • This revision includes the ability to send a copy of each outbound/sent fax to a predefined fax number (for archival purposes).

  • It is now possible to edit the Fax Address Book from the front panel of the device.

Digital Sending

NOTE: Enhancements may not be applicable to M5025.
  • Expand Kerberos username field limited to accommodate long UserPrincipalName entries.

  • Enabled the ability to logon with UserPrincipalName without specifying a domain.

  • Embedded Send to Folder can now use DNS or WINS

Embedded Jet Direct
  • Improved NetBIOS over TCP/IP name resolution.

  • Enhanced FTP for interoperability with more FTP clients and programs

Fixes or improvements

The following fixes or improvements are provided by this firmware release (Datecode: 20071002 48.041.4):

Base Product
  • The mfp cannot automatically sense Letter Paper that has been loaded in a tray in the short edge fashion (11 inch side facing the user). To help eliminate 13.02 paper jams that may be encountered when a user does not realize this, the default paper size that is used when Letter paper is loaded in this fashion has been changed from A5 to Letter-R.

  • Blank Copies may be seen when copying A4 paper through the ADF or from the Scanner glass in the Long-Edge Fashion

For example: If the regional default is Letter and the default original size is set to 11x17, it will change back to Letter after a copy is made with Letter even if 11x17 is desired as the default original size.

  • A prompt to "Load Letter in Tray One" will be presented on the HP Easy Select Control pane after a copy job is initiated. If the prompt for Letter is ignored and a tray containing Letter - R is selected, the output will be rotated 90 degrees. This happens if all trays containing Letter have been loaded in the Short Edge fashion (Letter - R) and paper is loaded in the ADF Long Edge Fashion (letter).

Firmware revision 48.031.7

Notes
  • This firmware release has a new feature to automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time. After installation of the firmware, the MFP may have a control panel screen prompt for time zone or date and time. These screens will remain on the MFP until action is taken by a user. While the prompts are displayed, the MFP will still print, and receive and print faxes.

  • There are isolated conditions where the time zone and Daylight Saving Time adjustment appear to be configured, but are not. Correct configuration can be verified in the EWS by going to the Start and End Date page in the EWS. A device that is not configured will have a “0” in the DST Offset field, and incorrect dates for Start Date and Stop Date. Navigate to the Start and End Date page of the EWS as follows: [Settings]/[Date and Time]/[Advanced]/[Start Date / End Date]

  • As a side effect of a high-priority fix, the EWS Print functionality does not work with this release.
