Cautions for Servicing & Prohibited Printing List
Cautions for Servicing
Prohibited from Printing by Law
□ Do not touch the photoconductive drum. Scratches or
smudges on the drum will cause dirty printouts.
□ Do not make any modifications to this machine. Doing so
may result in personal injury or damage to the machine.
□ The fusing unit is extremely hot. Exercise care in this area.
□ Since this machine is heavy, it is recommended that it be
moved by more than one person to prevent injury.
□ When connecting this machine to a computer, be sure to first
turn both the computer and the machine off.
□ Do not throw toner or a toner cartridge into fire. Toner may
be spattered, causing a burn.
□ Store toner or toner cartridges in a hard-to-reach place for
child safety.
□ Do not print anything that is prohibited from printing by
law.
The following items are normally prohibited from printing
by national law. Other items may be prohibited by local
law.
•
Money
•
Stamps
•
Bonds

Flash ROM
Flash ROM Version Up (Firmware ROM Upgrade) Procedures
General Information
The Flash ROM Version Up procedures enable writing of the program data from a PC to the target PWBs which
becomes source ROM. Target PWBs and ROMs include:
• PCU PWB
- PCU Flash ROM
• MFP Control PWB
- Boot Flash RO
- Main Flash ROM
• Scanner PWB
- Scanner Flash ROM
• Fax PWB
- Fax Flash ROM
Two Procedures are Available to Write to ROM
1. Procedure 1 (Collectively Writing to “Batch”)
2. Procedure 2 (Using the CN6 of the Controller PWB to Write ROMs Individually)
After choosing the applicable procedure, make sure you have the necessary items on hand for upgrading as listed
under Preparation.
Preparation
The following items are required to perform an update procedure.
• Host machine with operating ROM in it
• Windows/Personal computer (operating in MS-DOS mode) with a USB or parallel port
• USB cable or Centronics cable (to connect the PC and the Controller PWB)
• Software for upgrading (SFU collective file or SFU unit-specific files)
• Spare Flash ROMs for PCU, Controller Boot, and Scanner)
• Updated Firmware of FCOPY.EXE and/or File2PRN.EXE. (latest version downloaded from Sharpnet©)

Flash ROM Version Up (Firmware ROM Upgrade) Procedures (cont’d)
DIP Switches
Note:
When updating the ROM, the DIP switches on the back of the
machine must be set properly. Follow the Setting the DIP Switches
procedure below.
Setting the DIP Switches
1.
Remove the screw marked with an asterisk (*) from the Controller
PWB at the back of the machine and rotate the plate part to access
the DIP switches. See illustration.
Note:
There are two DIP switches on the Controller: the Diag Mode
Switch (on the left) and the Write Protect Switch (on the right).
The switches are set to the Protect mode (switches are in the Up
position) during normal operation. Protect mode is the default. In
order to write to the ROM, the switches must be changed to the
down position (Diag Mode). This releases the write protection.
2.
Upon completion of the upgrade procedure, remember to return
the switches to the Up position (Write Protect), and then rotate the
plate back over the DIP switches to the original position, and
tighten down the screw.

replace the ROM.
Turning Off the Power During Update
When the power is turned OFF during the update process, though the
machine is booted, data writing cannot be assured. Retry update as
follows:
1. When the power is turned OFF during the update
process of Upgrade Procedure 1:
Troubleshooting “Result:NG”
If a “Result:NG” is displayed, check for the following possible causes.
Event: The Write Protect DIP switch setting is incorrect.
Action: Make sure that the Write Protect switch of the Controller PWB is set to the release
side (down).
Retry the update procedure. If the machine is not booted or
the hard keys are not invalid (**), retry of the update is
failed again, replace the ROMs with the spare one of the
PCU, the controller BOOT, and the scanner ROM, and try
the update procedure of Upgrade Procedure 2 for the
replaced ROMs. (** When the backlight of the display is
lighted but the hard keys are invalid, all LED’s flash.)
2. When the power is turned off during the update process of
Upgrade Procedure No. 2.
Note: Data cannot be written to the ROM if the Write Protect switch is not set to Release
(down). Set the DIP switch properly and retry updating.
Event: The FAX cable is not connected. (The FAX is NG.) Writing cannot occur.
Action: Connect the cable properly and retry writing.

Update Window Display in Normal Booting
After completion of updating, when the power is turned OFF and the DIP
switches on the back of the machine are set to the normal side and the
machine is booted, the update window is displayed as shown below
instead of the normal boot window, the PCU or the scanner may not have
been properly updated.
Update Process Flow
The brief descriptions on the update procedures are as follows:
For turning off during update, refer to “Turning Off the Power During
Update”.
If the update window is displayed after booting with the DIP switches on
the back of the machine set to the normal side, refer to “Update Window
Display in Normal Booting”.
At that time, use the Up/Down key to check the version of the PCU or
the scanner. If the version is displayed as “BootMode,” or if the key
operation is invalid (all the LEDs are flashing), retry updating as follows:
1.
When the key operation is possible and the version is displayed
as “BootMode”:
Turn OFF the power and retry the update procedure of
Procedure 2. At that time, be sure to set the dip switches
properly. After updating again, if the result is still NG, replace
the ROMs with the spar one of the PCU and the scanner ROM,
and perform the update procedure for the replaced ROMs.
2.
When the key operation is invalid:
Turn OFF the power and replace the ROMs with the spare one
of the PCU and the scanner ROM, and perform the update
procedure for the replaced ROMs. Be sure to set the DIP
switches properly.
