New 577dw printer [serial number removed] gave trouble on Net-Work (error xb8320f32). Took machine off hte Net-Work and did a reset to factory defaults. After having done this used EWS to update from xxxx.1829A.00 (came with printer) to xxx.1908C.00. Update was successful. But update disabled tons of features like: WiFi direct, Reset to Facory Defaults, parts of... Power Mangement...Quiet Mode...Preferences...Update etc.. While I am asking the Community my smart wife used Print and Scan Doctor via USB cable and got the WiFi function/access and the IP-address back. And here her Solution: Go into IP-address and EWS, click Settings and go to Administrator Account and click Enable All... BUT scroll and go to "Control Panel Lock" and DISABLE this one!!! Means, in one advice on the Net the writer suggested to Enable All Features. With that also disable features get activated and disables some sort of features. Assumption: If you Enable All features...scroll to Control Panel Lock and disable it.
At least, the malfunction from the event-log error xb8320f32 has not received any solution. One of you in the community might know what we have here. Actually the printer stopped with this error after printing 2-5 PDF's, also blackening some fields in the PDF-forms (error also onece in while showed: memory problem).
