Update the firmware on an OKI Data printer
Download the latest firmware version available for your OKI Data printer.
Prepare the printer. Ensure that the printer is connected to your computer or network and powered on. Close any open applications or print jobs that might interfere with the firmware update process.
Install the firmware update utility. If the firmware update package you downloaded includes a utility or software for updating the firmware, run the installer and follow the on-screen instructions to install it on your computer.
Launch the firmware update utility. Open the firmware update utility on your computer. It may have been installed as a separate program or accessible through the printer's settings or control panel.
Connect to the printer. Follow the instructions provided by the firmware update utility to connect to your OKI Data printer. This may involve selecting the printer model, specifying the connection type (e.g., USB or network), and ensuring that the printer is recognized by the utility.
