Flash ROM Version Up (Firmware ROM Upgrade) Procedures
Flash ROM
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:
• Control PWB
- Boot/Main Flash ROM
- PCU Flash ROM
• MFP Control PW
- Boot Flash RO
- Main Flash ROM
• Scanner / Fax PW
- Scanner Flash ROM
- 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)
Flash ROM (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.

Flash ROM (cont’d)
Upgrade Procedure 1: Collectively Writing with Each ROM Inserted into the Specified Slot
Note:
Make certain all of the ROMs on the PCU, FAX, and scanner are operating ROMs. An empty ROM (a ROM that cannot boot the machine)
cannot be used for writing.
Setup
1. Set the Diag Mode Switch DIP switch (located on the left side on the back of the machine) to the diag mode. (See Setting the DIP Switches.)
2. Make certain the scanner unit is connected to the machine.
3. When a FAX is installed, make certain the FAX unit is connected to the machine.
4. Connect the PC and Controller PWB with the Centronics cable or USB cable.
5. Power ON the PC.
6. Power ON the machine to be updated.
Update Procedures
1. When the machine is booted, the following display is shown.
3. Press OK key, and the following window is displayed.
2. Press the MENU key a few times to display the following windows.
Note 1:
The LED flashes and the display is changed
sequentially (as shown below) when files are
transferred from the PC by Fcopy.EXE or
File2PRN.EXE.
Note: If using File2PRN.EXE, select the connection type (USB or
parallel) with the Up/Down select key.

Note 2:
The backlight of the LCD is instantaneously
turned OFF when the scanner is updated. Do
not power OFF since it is not a breakdown.
Wait several minutes until “Result: OK” displays,
then press the Up/Down key to make certain
there is no “Result: NG” for each ROM.
Note 3:
On machines that do not have a FAX installed,
when the collective files are updated, the
display is “Result: NG”. “Result: NG” is
displayed in this instance for FAX.
In all other “Result: NG” displays, see the
section titled Troubleshooting “Result:NG”.
4.
Reboot the machine. Use the Up/Down key on
window 1) to verify that the version of the updated
software has been updated correctly.
5.
Power OFF and reset the DIP switches to the Up
position (Write Protect default).
