Improvements for the 3L supplies


Changes

With this firmware upgrade there are some Improvements and fixes for the 3L supplies subsystem.

Details

This version includes improvements to minimize system errors related to the refilling process, such as SE 47.3x and 47.9x, when the hardware is not the cause. Also implemented are changes to avoid, in certain specific scenarios, cartridges declared as “Out of Ink” when they still contain ink.


A new front-panel option to enable/disable the OMAS


Changes

This firmware upgrade introduces a new front-panel option to enable/disable the OMAS in the Modify Substrate screen.

Details

This new option enables the operator to set the OMAS ON/OFF for a specific media type. All print modes within the media profile will be affected by this setting. It is recommended to load the substrate after disabling the OMAS and to synch the RIP settings to ensure the new configuration is properly applied.


New OMS (media profile)


Changes

Addition of a new OMS (media profile) “Generic Self-Adhesive Vinyl optimized for small text

Details

A new profile has been added in the SAV family which optimizes the sharpness of small text, this new profile contains a single print mode at 10 passes, CMYK cm and 110 Ink.
IMPORTANT: Be aware that the final throughput is highly affected. HP recommends using this print mode for applications that require sharper details, such as stickers with small fonts.


New message appears in the Substrate Library


Changes

A warning message now appears on the front panel when substrates cannot be found or downloaded due to connectivity issues


Configuration Center now reports color calibration more often


Changes

Configuration Center now has a reduced refresh time for reporting completion of color calibration


PrintOS Mobile now reports the Ready status correctly when the printer awakes from sleep


Changes

With the previous firmware release, PrintOS Mobile was not able to see the “real” status of the printer when awaking from sleep. Now, as soon as the printer is in READY status, the Mobile option shows it correctly.


A fix for Internal Plot Accounting.


Changes

Now all calibrations and internal plots are correctly reported in the Accounting tool.


Minor internal changes to improve the printer’s functionality


Possibility to downgrade to previous version


Changes

Downgrading to previous version is possible.
