    • Fix to address clipping on the Korean keyboard.
    • Change to prevent 940.00 Firmware Error caused by EEPROM corruption.
    • Fix for intermittent issues with erratic operator panel behavior such as miscolored text, missing icons, etc.
    • Fix for an issue that causes toner levels above 10% to jump to reporting 100% after firmware update on CS/CX82x and CX860 and their equivalent devices (CSTPP and CXTPP firmware versions).
    • Fix for an issue with shifted output after a duplex scan on a device with a recirculating ADF.
    • Fix for Configuration Bundle combined with Firmware FLS file to be accepted and correctly applied/updated.
    • Fix for some causes of 940.00 errors.
    • Fix for an 840.02 error when waking up from Sleep Mode on some multifunction devices.
    • Fix for a 126.06B error intermittently occurring at the start of print on MS/MX53x and MS/MX63x devices and their equivalents (MSNSN, MSTSN, and MXTSN firmware versions).
    • Fix for devices that intermittently become stuck at a screen while scanning.
    • Fix for an intermittent "Busy, Please Wait" hang after updating firmware on CS/CX82x and CX860 and their equivalent devices (CSTPP and CXTPP firmware versions).
    • Fix for a directory permissions issue that prevents LSDM app from receiving captured images for scan tasks.
    • Updated messaging for usability improvements on panel and Report pages.
    • Fix for an issue where the device op panel showed Black Toner Level in gray rather than in black, blending too much into the background of the panel and making it difficult to determine the supply level.
    • Reduce delays in print processing time for MICR jobs.
    • Fix for an issue where immediately after an Out of Service Erase, the printer may not be able to be found and added via the Lexmark driver.
    • Fix for an intermittent issue where scans to JPEG file type may have the bottom portion of the scan missing or replaced by a gray block.
    • Improvements for multiple sources of 900 errors, some causes include:
      • Scan operations resulting in crash
      • Kernel errors
      • Specific types/contents of print jobs
  • Known Issues/Notes of Interest:
    • Please contact TSC if you need firmware for a particular device that does not show up on Downloads & drivers.
    • CS92x and CX92x and their equivalent devices (CSTMH and CXTMH firmware versions) exhibit toner cartridges reporting 4% instead of empty resulting in 129.00, 129.10, 129.20, or 129.30 error codes. To prevent the light color print quality issue, users can enable Custom Supplies Notification on the device via the web page or panel and change the “Very Low” Supply Level Behavior setting to “Non-Continuable Stop” for every cartridge (black, yellow, magenta, and cyan). This custom notification prevents the 129.00, 129.10, 129.20, and 129.30 error codes from reoccurring and forces a new supply to be inserted. This is a temporary solution until a firmware fix is available. See "Firmware bug in FW23 (releases 230.xxx) causes 129.00, 129.10, 129.20, and 129.30 errors" for additional details.

This will correct itself when the cartridge level reaches 10% full. A fix is in progress for this issue and will be available at a later date. Contact Technical Support if needed..
    • Due to the power dissipation of some devices, the recommended wait time after power off before power on to 30 seconds is increased..
