This firmware version installs code signing verification functionality. Firmware signed by HP guarantees the integrity and authenticity of the code; meaning that the firmware was produced by HP (authenticity) and that the firmware has not been altered in any way (integrity).
Please use a 2 meter (6 foot) USB High speed (2.0) cable.

  • Before the process starts: Turn the printer off and then back on at this time only to clear main printer memory.

  • Make sure the firmware being updated is for the correct LaserJet product. For example, if you are updating the LJM1319, the firmware file should be for the LJM1319. If the incorrect version of firmware is downloaded to a device, the new code will be ignored and the device will retain its original firmware and return to a ready state.

  • Backup or record all important settings and parameters. Print out any important saved information. This process may initialize settings and parameters to factory defaults and clear information stored in memory.
