E8257D scpi command don't recognized

Hi all. Lately i have been programing the E8257D synthetizer. I'm  trying to set a fixed frequency with the "freq:fix xghz" command, with "x" the frequency to set. I get a "data out of range" error. The command usually worked before, but now isn't working. 

The synthetizer was repaired a few months ago, and now it has the latest firmware(c.06.16). We bought it about 2006 and probably  the firmware wasn't upgraded up to this year. Could be a firmware problem then? Would be recommended to return to previous firmware? I'm using the same setup as before (when it was working), witht gpib-usb interface.

Thanks for any help.
