The pdf file has the below properties:

In order to update the printer firmware, I have locally connected the HP Laserjet 8150 printer through the parallel port to a computer running Windows XP Professional SP3 Operating System. The HP Laserjet 8150 printer original Firmware Datecode is 20010426 MB7.92.

I downloaded the latest "HP LaserJet 8150 printer firmware for single/multiple printers - Windows operating systems" version MB7.119 16 (Dec 2004). After extracting the download printer firmware file, I open a command prompt and send the firmware upgrade file, lj8150fw_MB7.119.rfu directly to the printer through the printer parallel port using the below COPY command (/b indicates a binary file):

copy /b lj8150fw_MB7.119.rfu LPT1

The HP Laserjet 8150 printer shown a "Receiving upgrade", "Upgrading printer" status. After that, the HP Laserjet 8150 printer automatically recycle itself, load the program, initialize and boot up. The HP Laserjet 8150 printer new Firmware Datecode is 20041013 MB7.119. The pdf file entitled "On the concept of 'tractor beams'" has print successfully after updating the HP Laserjet 8150 printer firmware.



[JackNg: Updated on 31 Jan 2012] The update Firmware Datecode 20041013 MB7.119 also solved the below stack underflow error:
