z3100 firmware TR12-TR_07_00_00-3_mvl40-x86-opt
« on: September 05, 2008, 11:39:24 AM »

Has the TR12-TR_07_00_00-3_mvl40-x86-opt firmware just been released on the 4th Sept? I can't find a file saying what the improvements are actually about?

With thanks mehdi

Answering my own question:
You will be able to replace a cartridge that has run out of ink in the middle of a print without needing to cancel the print.
When loading photo papers, the printer will ask if you want to cut the leading edge of the paper.
You will be able to load 11-inch-wide rolls.
A firmware upgrade will not delete custom paper presets from the printer.
You will be able to assign an IPv6 address to the printer from the front panel.
There will be a new option in the Paper menu to advance and reverse paper without cutting it.
Note: During the upgrade, the printer's front panel may display a white screen for two minutes before continuing with the upgrade process.

Sounds pretty nice.  I guess we can hope for an update for the Postscript version before the new year then . . .

Thanks, Medhi!!!!!

In the usual HP bizarre website experience the new firmware wasn't visible for Windows and my 24" Z.  Now it is but the release notes are for the previous version.

This sounds like an excellent firmware update.  Thanks again for letting us know.

I've been downloading the Windows XP version of the firmware for the 24" Z  TR12_07_00_00-3_mvl40-x86-opt.exe but even after three downloads I still receive an error message when trying to execute the file:

"Zip file is damaged, truncated, or has been changed since it was created...."

Has anyone had any luck with the new firmware on XP?

I was able to successfully install this upgrade from my Macintosh. I compared a few newly printed images to some previously printed and I see no changes. This is always a concern to me when upgrading firmware.

It looks like there are some new calibration entries in the image quality menu on the printer. "enable color calibration" (on/off). I don't remember seeing this one before.

The new ability to move roll paper forward and backward using the up/down arrows is welcome. I wish they would have set it up so you didn't have to go into the paper menu to do so. The up/down arrows don't work for anything unless you are in the menus. The could have just made them work for moving paper all the time it seems.

I always like to hear some success stories before I upgrade my firmware so I hope this helps someone else.

Hmm, din't have luck with update.  Updated from Mac and after restarting the printer reports error code 08:11 and refuse to boot.

I guess I will need to call support next week.

This is interesting.  I've tried to restart the printer twice as it asked for and always it ended up in 08:11 shortly after showing 0% progress bar.  Then I've removed ethernet cable from printer, restarted and printer is back alive again and definitely with new firmware.  Will give it a test run now.

Apparently in 6 months of testing the new driver HP forgot about ethernet support?

OK, after rebooting printer lost usage statistics (i.e. only overall ink/paper usage was preserved). If I knew that in advance, I would export it first.  Paper presets was there, calibration too, but I've re-calibrated anyway because it was a while since I calibrated last time.  Since the exagons seemed a bit more off each other than usual, I also re-did head alignment.

Then the printer refused to print from Mac I did all the other work from.  The driver reported that it no longer can connect to the printer. Interestingly it printed from Windows machine.  This got fixed by removing the printer and adding it again.

Now all seems to be back in order first prints are same as usually.  I think for HP Mathe Litho the printer is now printing slighly faster, or at least machine tends to resonate differently than before, but it might be just me.  Can't tell for sure since the logs listing printing times was lost...

I might sound scary, but overall this seems nice update with little improvements all over the place (i.e. web server and menu was slightly extended). Especially look forward to be able to replace the cartridges.

Same problem with mine - tried it twice - an hour each time.

Just update the mac version.

It took far longer than other updates ( more than 15 minutes) and it was a lot heavier than previous updates: 550 mb instead ogf the usual 380 mb.

But leaving the machine in peace for some time in the end all works well.

I see some little changes but there is no information from HP about what has changed - I don't know why they don't add a pdf with with information in the download.

Just fyi...  I let Ben Wolf (HP) know of the problem with the Windows firmware and he said he'd look into it.

You're welcome. Ben responded that the engineering team is now aware of the problem and we should see a new file by tomorrow at the latest.

Hi folks,

just downloaded and installed the MAC version, everything went flawlessly. Including download it took 1 hour.

Printer is back alive... Didnīt do a test print though.

Best,

Clem

The link to the Windows 32 bit version is no longer available.  Hopefully, when it becomes available again, it will link to a usable file.

Nothing yet.  Hopefully this time they're testing before posting.    

Its a firmware update I'm looking forward to.
