    Advise endusers not to attempt updating firmware. If the machine is not working the way they want it to, then updating firmware by a technician is advised.

    For a person familiar with updating the firmware the most likely outcome is no-change in performance. The second most likely outcome is to brick the machine. The third most likely outcome is reduced functionality.

    For a person unfamiliar with updating firmware the most likely outcome is to brick the machine.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Hi,
    @blackcat4866, thanks for your reply and warning regarding firmware update on my own.
    I'm fully aware of the risks.
    I would like in the first place as stated to know which firmware version is installed on my Bizhub 4050 via the control panel, then forward the version to the community and "maybe or maybe not" trying to update it with the help of the community and with the appropriate procedures.
    Thanks all for your reply.

    There is a version 13: G0B-W99 Controller, newer than yours.

    And I will repeat: If the machine works, there is no need to update ... unless you were hoping for a brick. =^..^=
    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.

    Ultimately what is your goal? I'm sorta firmware update obcessed junky but most folks here like the approach - keep it simple working or Kiss and it works 99+%

    Thanks for your reply, as i already save the printer from being destroyed initially, i don't mind to brick !
    If you want to share the newer version with me, it will be great otherwise...

    Sorry, you'll have to find someone else to help you brick the machine. I won't do it, for your own good. =^..^=

    @tsbservice, @blackcat4866,
    Yes the equipment works fine with the actual firmware !
    On the other side, why the manufacturer delivers new firmware then if not to resolve bug, improve the equipment, fight the planned obsolescense etc...
    Thanks for your help anyway !

    Cat is correct..these are not KM devices, but lexmarks..firmware is Engine, controller, and web browser/non web browser. Each firmware must be put on in a very particular step by step or as he mentioned you get a brick..Maybe you could post what you are trying to accomplish..I have trained techs that screw this up from time to time.
