Re: download mode

you took the wrong fitrmware , you need ether pcl of ps depending on your machine...


download the correct firmware , create the folder DWLD on your usb stick , put the rom in that folder , boot up the machine with the usb stick in

when booting up the machine , hold the power saver button...

Hi Chandra,
Thank you for using the Xerox forum.

I would suggest that you review the following solution.

Re: download mode

Hi there,

Try to shut down the machine and press several times the "Energy Saver" button. Sometimes the button is stuck and the machines enters download mode.
