6605 firmware upgrade problem with MacOs

Jump to solution
Product Name: WorkCentre 6605
Operating System: macOS 10.13 - High Sierra

Hello,

a strange issue trying to upgrade a 6605 firmware with MacOS 10.13.

When I open terminal and type the lp -d command to send the prn file to the printer like this for example:

lp -d XEROX6605 /Users/user/Desktop/181029_p6600_stdxc/p6600_FW_201810291201.prn

When I hit enter to execute the command it says that the requested ID is XEROX6605-random number.

As it adds this random number, the printer ID results to be incorrect and so the upgrade fails. I've tried to add again the printer giving it a different name but the problem still occurs as it always adds this random number to the printer ID.

What can I do to make it send the firmware file correctly without the addition of the random number? Is there any different way to upgrade its firmware (obviously without using a Windows machine)

Thank you

Kari

Hi,

What I observe is that you downloaded the firmware for Paser 6600 which is just printer and not for WC6605 (multifunction printer). I supposed this is the reason. 

lp -d XEROX6605 /Users/user/Desktop/181029_p6600_stdxc/p6600_FW_201810291201.prn

Hi Gabi,

...indeed! We didn't check the most banal thing.

Than you
