laserjet 9050 firmware update

How would I update the frimware in my 9050 2000 sheet feeder and stacker bin? I have updated the printer no problem but can't find info on updating the accessories.
I am trying to eliminate 49 errors.

Never seen an accessory cause a 49 error. Most times if not the firmware it is a job that is sent (usually adobe) which has foreign characters or whatever that causes the error. Easy to tell. Disconnect the printer from the network and print a slew of test pages from the printer going from the feeder to the stacker and see if you get any errors. Bet you do not. Could also be the embedded nic card if you have one or an internal jet direct which can cause the error.

In this case the 49 error would not clear until the stacker unit was disconnected from the printer. Have had the same issue on other printers with the hard drive.

Re: laserjet 9050 firmware update

Hi Chris
I've got exactly the same problem!
My error, with 3000 sheet stacker C8084A, was 49.2169.
9050 fw is 08.108.0
I understand (but don't know for sure)that the stacker fw should be 050315.
Is your stacker new?

Chris,

Download the firmware from HP. When you run the executable, you can look thru the text file and it will tell you of any/all devices and errors that will be updated.

The latest HP updates usually contain all past updates also. I looked at a past update, it contained updates for the printer, jet direct cards, and input and output devices.

Re: laserjet 9050 firmware update

Trouble is, to download firmware to the stacker
the stacker must be in a ready state.
Stacker will not come ready (either gives 3 red led flashes or 49.xx err) so can't update firmware to stacker... What was the name of that book?.. Catch...

Re: laserjet 9050 firmware update

But how do I download to the stacker and the 2000 sheet feeder if it is working. I have 15 other 9050 printers that I would like to update besides the one that is not working.
If it is working does the standard printer firmware update download to these devices or is there a special procedure to update the external devices?

If the device is attached, it should update automatically.

Updated firmware with stacker removed. Attached stacker and error was cleared. Will now updated again with stacker attached and the stacker firmware should update.
