I Don’t see the ‘Tools Tab’

You likely have an older version of the driver.

You can update to the latest driver and firmware in the Drivers and Downloads Section related to your product.

Wait for the query information to arrive, then click Save.  It will be really helpful if you can Save the query file as:

 

Please name your file with your printers serial number:

Generation 1 printers will have a letter in the serial number:

  12F3456.txt

Generation 2 printers will not have a letter, just 8 digits:

  12345678.zip

 

 

If Technical Support have requested a query file please attach it to your existing web case or email thread, thank you… 🙏
