HP just released firmware version 18.104.22.168 for the HP Designjet L26500. The firmware update is now available for download at www.hp.com/go/L26500/support is strongly recommended.
The new firmware update optimizes the Carriage Rail Cleaning & Lubrication triggers to help keep the printer maintained and running optimally. Some newly-installed printers have seen 87:02 lubrication warnings shortly after installation, but with the firmware update these warnings will be avoided.
After the firmware has been upgraded:
- If coming from version 5 or below, the printer will start to display requests for printer maintenance when needed, depending on the printer’s usage and/or your workflow
- If coming from version 6 or 8, the printer will continue to display requests for printer maintenance when needed, depending on the printer’s usage and/or your workflow.
It is very important to carry out Cleaning & Lubrication when triggered. For more information on the procedure you can check the following video: www.hp.com/go/L2Series/CarriageRailMaintenance_video
