Introduction
This document will guide you in using HP Firmware Download Utility (HP FDU) to upgrade your
HP Business Inkjet 1200 series printer firmware.
Why do I need to upgrade firmware?
HP is constantly working on improving the performance of the printer. From time to time, these
updates are passed on to the user through a combination of firmware and software driver
updates.
How do I upgrade the printer firmware?
Before you start:
•
The HP Business Inkjet 1200 firmware flashing (upgrade) requires a wired network or a
USB connection.
•
DO NOT upgrade the printer firmware on a wirelessly connected printer.
•
If the computer has a firewall installed or enabled, it may block the Firmware Download
Utility from accessing the printer. Therefore, please remember to temporarily disable any
firewall that may be on the computer, including firewalls such as Microsoft Windows XP
Firewall, Sygate, Zone Alarm or BlackICE.
