I.   Introduction

This readme file will guide you on successfully using a self-extractable set of files to Update your printer and personality card firmware.

The HP Printer Firmware Update Utility v1.1 can be used to update firmware on both locally and remotely connected (locally shared, JetDirect, LPR or Standard TCP/IP) printers.

Prior to attempting a firmware upgrade, please verify your firmware version by using the following buttons on the Control Panel to print a configuration page:
	
	1. Use the MENU button to obtain the INFORMATION MENU
	2. Use the ITEM button to obtain the PRINT CONFIGURATION item
	3. Press the RESUME button

- NOTE - In the Printer Information section of the configuration page you will find the Base Firmware version listed as <Firmware> and the Personality Firmware version listed as <Personality Version>

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

II.  How to Flash Your Printer:

	1. Make sure you have the following self extractable file:
           - bi127.exe (used for flashing the base firmware)
	2. follow Steps 1-8 in Section III below

b.  hp business inkjet 2250, hp business inkjet 2250tn OR hp business inkjet 2200 with a personality card (HP Postscript/PCL5 Kit - C5935A)
	1. Make sure you have the following self extractable files:
	    - bi127.exe (used for flashing the base firmware)
	    - bi128.exe (used for flashing the personality card firmware)
	2. Follow Steps 1-8 in Section III below
	3. Follow Steps 1-8 in Section IV below

-WARNING!- It is critical that you complete Step 2 above to flash your base firmware BEFORE attempting to flash the firmware on your personality card (Step 3 above).  In addition, while your printer continues to contain a combination of new base firmware and old personality card firmware below version 6.4.0, it will remain UNUSABLE, therefore you should make sure that both steps 2 & 3 above are completed in a single session.
