Firmware Update for Canon WUX450/ WX520/ WUX400ST/ WX450ST Projectors

Thank you for using Canon products.

Firmware Version 01.030300 incorporates the following improvements:
  1. Improves fan rotation pattern to reduce fan noise when the Projector is in Power Saver Mode.
  2. Enables Standby mode to be identified by the Power ON LED indicator flashing at an interval of four seconds.
  3. Addresses an issue when the network function set to OFF (default setting). User menu settings are now retained even if the projector is turned OFF immediately after changing the menu setting.

This firmware update is for the listed projectors running a firmware version that is earlier than Version 01.030300. If the firmware version of the projector is already Version 01.030300, there is no need to update the firmware. After the firmware update, it is possible to restore the projector to a previous firmware version.
