If you are an administrator, you may be prompted for permission to continue with the installation. Please select to continue the process.
      4. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the installation. If you see the success screen with the following message at the end of the installation, "Device Update Successful", press the "Close" button to finish the printer update.
    CAUTION! Do not interrupt the printer during the upgrade process. Printer may be damaged if power is interrupted during the firmware upgrade process.
