    Latest GTX Series Firmware
    Version: 3.0 Updated: 11/9/18 Size: 7.12 MB
    Details

    Update to firmware 3.0 on your GTX printer before installing this printer driver. The reason being is if the PC already has the 3.0 printer driver installed first, the new printer driver will downgrade automatically once connected.

    • Download the “GTX4FIRM3000006.zip” zipped file and extract it onto your desktop.
    • Execute "GTX Firmware Update" in [ Brother GTX-4 Tools ] and select the unzipped Firmware Data (extension ".bwf").
    • Follow the Wizard and update the GTX-4 Firmware. Do not disconnect the USB cable in execution.
    • To update your printer’s firmware, you can follow the instructions at https://vimeo.com/253673571.

    Important Updates:

    • Printhead voltage table modification for new CMYK ink
      • Brother will be releasing an altered ink set that will have a slightly shifted color gamut. This voltage is to help compensate for the firing of that newer ink set from the CMYK print head.
    • Sequence modification when the carriage error happened
      • During some error codes related to carriage movement when the carriage is not directly affected or bound preventing it from capping the printer will still attempt to cap the heads. However it is recommended to still check that the print head is capped because if the error relates directly with the carriage being able to perform capping or the printer is compromised by another error that would prevent capping; manual capping of the carriage may still be needed.
    • Select the movement of obstacle sensor
      • The printer will by default check for clearance when printing or when the platen is ejecting during printing. The option to toggle this off is available so that the printer will check only when the platen is going into the printer for clearance.
    • The modification of white ink pouch rolling
      • A secondary warning will notify you to verify or check that the pouch was added, and a secondary warning will come up notifying you to check if the pouch can properly roll up when Error 2084 appears. The text will appear yellow.
