HI all

My ET-8550 has notified me of firmware update and I have searched for what it is intended to improve and/or correct but have yet find anything.

Unfortunately, there is rarely any specific info provided about the content of such updates

I surmise it is AOK to let it update but I would welcome knowing a bit more about it beforehand???

Me too

I've asked contacts at Canon and Epson, and the local branches  (such as the US, or here in the UK) often don't get the full detail from HQ

TIA for any insights

I will update any printer I'm testing with new firmware as a matter of course.

With any printer that's less than a couple of years from initial launch, firmware updates are a wise move IMHO. If the printer's fine and you want to be doubly sure, leave it for a few weeks...

Of course, if you're using dodgy refills and kludged chips, you might choose otherwise, but hey that was your choice
