Subject :Flash Upgrade Version 3.37 ICU, 3.35 PCU, 3.35 OPE,Flash 4.exe
We are pleased to issue the above firmware version to resolve the following
problems :-
(1) 
When printing 2040 sheets from Word97 using Mail-Merge, the printer hangs up
when 520 sheets are printed out.  This failure has been corrected with the above
firmware.
(2) 
When copying in staple mode, the specification requires copies to be produced
with a 180-degree image rotation. Because of this specification, when using pre-
printed letter headed paper, the paper orientation in the cassette has to be
changed whenever switching between staple mode and non-staple mode. As a
counter measure for this problem, we have added Sim26-46 that allows copies to
be produced with a 180-degree image rotation.
 
      
Sim26-46 details:
 
Sim value “0”  No change. Sim value “1” Copying with image rotation
 
Default setting  “1” .
 
 
Note, however, that on the machine without an AR-FN1 finisher installed, the
copy image will not be rotated even if the value is set to “1”.
 
Also note that first copy time will delay by 1 - 6 seconds if the value is set to “1”.
This must be explained to the users.
 
(3) 
When the machine is set in the following modes; Using RADF /Margin shift 1 /
Insert cover sheet /duplexing / Using 129% enlargement / 2 staples position, the
main motor continues to rotate. The above firmware corrects this problem.
 
(4) 
When printing mixed data (landscape and portrait) in duplex mode and inserting
covers from the bypass, E7-00 trouble occurs, the main motor continues to run
and the heater lamps stay on. The above firmware corrects this problem.
(5) 
The software controls the polygon motor in the LSU to keep rotating for 30
minutes after the completion of a copy job.  (This works when the setting of power
save mode is set to more than 30 minutes.)  Because of this, some users
considered that the polygon motor noise caused by its rotation while the machine
is in standby mode is irregular noise, and they complained of the noise.  In order
to correct the problem, we have added Sim26-40 to make it possible to change
the amount of time for which the polygon motor rotates after the completion of a
copy job.
 
 
 
 
Sim26-40 details
l In Sim26-40 “A”, the amount of time for which the polygon motor rotates can
range from 1 minute to 30 minutes in increments of 1 minute.  (default setting :
30 minutes)
l When the Sim26-40 “B” value is set to “0”, the amount of time set in “A” will be
invalid.  The polygon motor will stop in 30 minutes as it previously worked.
l When Sim26-40 “B” value is set to “1”, the amount of time set in “A” will be valid.
l Note, however, that if the amount of time set in power save mode is shorter than
the amount of time set in Sim26-40 “A”, the polygon motor will stop rotating
when the machine comes to power save mode.
l The polygon motor that stops rotating because of this feature will start rotating
by doing the following.
Place originals into RADF (SPF) with LCD showing copy settings screen.
1
 
Press any of the keys on control panel.
2
 
Open any of the covers of main unit.
3
 
Send print jobs to machine.
Note that if the polygon motor is in a state of not rotating regardless of the
values in Sim26-40 “B”, first copy time will delay by approx. 6 - 8 seconds,
because the machine needs the time to stabilise the rotation of the polygon
motor for next copy jobs.
6)   In order for Flash Programming to be fully compatibility with Windows 98 we      
      have introduced Flash 4.exe, this must be used with the latest firmware. Please 
      note Flash 2.exe cannot be used for current flashing.
All the firmware is located on the Sharp Internet Site.
