Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade

What you need

  1. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade, Make sure your printer is powered up and network connected.: step 1, image 1 of 1
    • You won't be able to proceed effectively if the printer can't be pinged on the network!

    • Note: you may be able to apply these principles to many other printers whose firmwares support a web user interface. The menus will vary of course.

  2. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • Open a browser window on any device attached to your network and type in the local network address of the printer.

  3. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 3, image 1 of 1
    • Scroll to bottom of left panel with scroll thumb. Click on "Basic Settings" link there.

  4. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 4, image 1 of 1
    • Click on "Firmware Update" link.

  5. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 5, image 1 of 1
    • Read and understand instructions before proceeding.

  6. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 6, image 1 of 1
    • Scroll to bottom of page to expose the "Start/Back to Main" buttons. Press "Start" if you are ready to attempt the firmware upgrade. Otherwise you can just close the browser tab/window if you have changed your plans.

  7. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 7, image 1 of 1
    • After a few moments you will see this screen as it tests to see if your printer firmware is up to date.

  8. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 8, image 1 of 1
    • If your system is already up to date you will see this page. Otherwise a page with your final confirmation options will be displayed, or you can close the browser session if you decide against upgrading of course. The warnings about not interrupting the upgrade will be given also. It will caution you against powering off while upgrade proceeds.

  9. Epson WF-3640 Firmware Upgrade: step 9, image 1 of 1
    • When upgrade is completed your web interface will advise you that the printer is ready to be restarted or maybe it takes care of the hardware restart for you... I don't remember but it is pretty foolproof if you just follow the screen instructions the web interface provides. I have used this to revive completely dead (non-printing) printers too!

Glad it helped you. Unfortunately as time has gone on ink jet printers have evolved and many now leverage these updating facilities to add “features” to printers that are not really in the consumer’s interest. I am thinking primarily of locking you into using exclusive OEM ink cartridges and the so-called waste boxes and so forth. If the manufacturers would put as much effort into building robust paper handling mechanisms as they do to trying to lock you into their supplies they might realize some actual brand loyalty love. Rant mode off.
