    Re: Firmware update on a Sharp MX 4101n

    (1) Firmware update procedure from the USB memory
    The firmware update executes by SIM49-01.
    1) Insert the media or USB memory which stores the firmware
    into the main unit.
    2) Enter the SIM49-01. Press the key of the file to be updated.
    The screen transfers to the update screen.
    * The number of key changes according to the number of the
    sfu file in the media or USB memory inserted.
    * If the media or USB memory was not inserted when entry to
    the SIM49-01 screen, "INSERT A STORAGE FIRMWARE
    STORED ON [OK]" is displayed on the screen. Insert the
    media or USB memory and push the [OK] key to open the
    file. If the media have not been inserted and [OK] key is
    pushed, the next screen does not appear and the screen
    waits the entry. Conversely, if the media or USB memory is
    pulled out on the file list screen, the error is detected by the
    [FILE] key pressing, and the first screen appears.
    3) Current version number and the version number to be updated
    will be shown for each firmware respectively.
    4) Select the key of the firmware to be updated. The key will be
    highlighted. (In this screen, [CONFIG] and [ICU(BOOTM)] are
    selected.) At the same time, [EXECUTE] key appears.
    If firmware's key is not selected, [EXECUTE] is gray out and
    cannot be pressed.
    * Press the selected key again to release the selection.
    * Press [ALL] key to select all items.
    5) Press [EXECUTE] key. “ARE YOU SURE? [YES] [NO]”
    becomes clear. Press [YES] to start the update of selected
    firemware.
    The progress is displayed on right side of "FIRMWARE
    UPDATE" title by 20 steps.
    At this time, only the progress gauge is displayed on the
    screen, and the version and the firmware selection key are not
    displayed.
    6) If the update is normal completion, following screen is displayed.
    Exit the simulation mode and turn off the power.
    Go to Simulation 22-05 and confirm the firmware has
    upgraded successfully.
    7) If the update is not normal completion, following screen is displayed.
    * When the power supply is turned off due to a black out etc. while
    updating or when the update terminated abnormally, a part of the
    main program stored in HDD may be damaged and may not
    booted normally.

    If you can't enter sim mode, you'll have to do the emergency update which will have
    different instructions.

    Re: Firmware update on a Sharp MX 4101n

    [Emergency update procedures]
    1) Insert the USB memory which stores the firmware for the
    emergency update into the USB port.
    2) Turn on the main power.
    The firmware for the emergency update in the USB memory is
    automatically recognized to start reading the USB memory.
    It takes about 1 minute, and the booting animation is displayed
    during this period.
    3) Check to confirm that "EmergencyUpdateMode" is displayed
    on the panel.
    After that, the process is automatically executed.
    4) Check the procedure.
    When the process is going on normally, the following message
    is displayed.
    5) Check the update result.
    When writing the program both to the HDD and to the Flash
    ROM is normally completed, the following message is displayed.
    If writing to either of the HDD or the Flash ROM is failed, the
    following message is displayed.
    In this case, if “Update Failed” is displayed, it may the HDD
    has been broken down probably. Replace the HDD with a new
    one, and execute the emergency update again.
    6) Turn OFF the main power.
    7) Remove the USB memory from the USB port.
    8) Turn ON the main power.
    9) Check the system operates normally.
    10) When the HDD is replaced, use SIM49-5 to upload the watermark
    data.
    11) Select the folder for updating, and press [EXECUTE] and
    [YES] keys in this order to start the updating procedures.
    [Note]
    • It takes about 6 minutes for the emergency update.
    • Never turn OFF the main power until the emergency update is
    completed.
    • When the emergency update is completed, be sure to remove
    the USB memory for the emergency update. The machine does
    not boot normally with the USB memory inserted.

    You will have to rename your firmware file emupdate_J2.sfu for the emergency update.

    It can be done using web interface as well. Machine has to be on the network though. Download latest firmware from sharp-idncservice.com, save it in a network shared folder. Login from any PC using browser, type address which is IP address of your machine, enter admin password, look for "Update firmware" link, provide path to the firmware file you downloaded, click Update.

    Re: Firmware update on a Sharp MX 4101n

    Tnx all. I have the firmware loaded on both machines. You rock!!! One problem though both machines are giving me a U2-60 error. Something to do with the watermark portion of the firmware I am guessing.
    Any ideas for this.

    Thank you again!!

    Re: Firmware update on a Sharp MX 4101n

    There is a separate file for the watermark firmware. Download that file onto your USB stick, then use sim 49-5 to upload to copier. That should take care of your U2-60 code.
