    Take care - Carolina
    Hi this should ONLY be available to credited ricoh service engineers but keeping your machines firmware up to date is the best way to keep machines more reliable you can get copier firmware from other sources have a look around on some threads and private message them

    You all are not understanding. These machines have an automatic firmware update feature built in, it just needs to be turned on. Simple as that, even an end user could do it if they just googled how to get into service mode and then turned on SP5886-111

    If on the other hand, you are in some way affiliated with that website, you're in London their in London, then you are in violation of "General Rule 8.

    I do not think Ricoh UK would be advising someone to go to that link. They have never mentioned it on ricoh technical website or any of the other communications we get. When speaking to the guys at Level 2 they always suggest my-ricoh.com or send the files you need directly from my experience.

    So I simply asked how it actually works. Care to explain as some other Ricoh techs are not convinced

    ^ Exactly this ^

    Set SP5-886-111 to 1 & I also set SP5-886-112 to 0 (auto update when machine is idle)

    Automatic firmware updates on newer models is just activating the SP (SP8-886-xxx if I recall) and ensuring the common cert is written as a 2048 bit cert, SP5-870-x. No @Remote required. Early models supporting this may need an initial manual update to make the appropriate SP available.

    Bear in mind, this is only available on the xx04, xx54 and the IM models. Not on any previous models.

    Thanks all

    I've got an agreement with Ricoh, they wasn't aware of any websites selling their firmware, but would look into it.

    Have a nice day.

    The Link you provided is operated by copier tech who has weighed in on this thread, and also posts the link in many of his replies and you'll notice that he also includes the link in his signature line.
    I have no idea about the legality of it
