When this update is performed, a manual power cycle will be required if updating from version 20070614 48.031.6 or versions prior to this release. This means that someone must manually turn the power of the device "off" and "on" using the power switch. No methods that are available to remotely power cycle the device will work. Only turning the power switch "off" and back "on" will finish the update process.

It is important to note that the device will still receive faxes and in most cases, a user will be able to send a fax, digital send, copy and print while in this state. The update process will not be complete until the power switch has been turned "off" and "on" and the mfp comes to a READY state. This means that certain issues and behavior changes addressed by this update will not be available until update is complete. HP highly recommends not leaving the device in this state and power cycling to assure correct product behavior.
