Ok, so here's the dummy version.  I hope it helps someone.

 

As described elsewhere in this post, turn on FTP in your printer.

 

Be sure your computer and your printer are on the same network.

 

Connect your printer to your network and find it's IP address.... perhaps in your routers DHCP table. Write that down.  Probably like 192.168.#. ##

 

Locate and download the needed firmware version, rename it to something easy to transcribe like,      hpupdate.rfu   and then cut and paste that renamed file into your hard drive's C: drive area (there is less folders to note in the path later)  literally it'll be C:\hpupdate.rfu

 

1) click on the windows start button

2) type cmd  and press enter

3) When the command prompt dialoge box comes up, type this      CD\       and press enter

4) C:    (the C: should then appear now)

5) at the C: type FTP and then your printers IP address you found earlier:       FTP 192.168.#.##  and press enter.

6)  Press enter again, bypassing user name

7) Press enter again, bypassing password

 The FTP command prompt will then replace the C:   looking like this      FTP>     

9) At the FTP prompt that is there put your file's location in there and press enter as below.

FTP> PUT C:\hpupdate.rfu  

10) The rest should take care of itself, you should see your printer updating, etc.

 

go back into your settings and turn off the FTP option.  Make changes to updates as necessary to other update settings.

I’m completely stuck and a total technology noob.  I got all the way through your great instructions but keep getting File not found message

Corridori,

 

If you’ve got the firmware on your C drive below Windows folder, Users folder, program files folder etc, then it’s just a matter of being sure you’re giving the right location for it. 


C:\Yourfirmwarefile’sname.rfu 

 

in my instructions, it looks like I failed to include a backslash on the bottom example.  I’ve edited it.
