Download new firmware from the HP Web site
To find the most recent firmware upgrade for the product, go to www.hp.com/go/cljcp3525_firmware. This page provides instructions for downloading the new firmware version.
Transfer the new firmware to the product
  note:
The product can receive an .RFU file update when it is in a "ready" state.
The following conditions can affect the time required to transfer the file.
  • The speed of the host computer that is sending the update.
  • Any jobs that are ahead of the .RFU job in the queue are completed before the update is processed.
  • If the process is interrupted before the firmware is downloaded, you must send the firmware file again.
  • If power is lost during the firmware update, the update is interrupted and the message Resend upgrade appears (in English only) on the control-panel display. In this case, you must send the upgrade by using the USB port.
  note:
The firmware update involves a change in the format of nonvolatile random-access memory (NVRAM). Any menu settings that are changed from the default settings might return to default settings and must be changed again if you want settings that are different from the defaults.
