Printer Firmware Update

Updating the Printer firmware cannot be done independently of upgrading the Controller firmware. New Controller firmware must be installed before new Printer firmware can be installed. If you are currently printing, you can schedule the firmware installation to happen after your current build is complete. Please take the steps below to update your Printer firmware.

  1. Upon completing the Controller firmware installation, the Controller should have restarted and prompted you to reopen the Update Manager. On the Update Manager screen, you will see listed on the right each Printer connected to your Controller. Tap the Schedule button next to a unit.

    2. Tap this radio button to schedule the update for only after the Printer has completed all print jobs assigned to it.
    3. Tap this checkbox to apply the current setting from a or b above to all Printers.
    4. Tap Cancel to back out of scheduling this update.
    5. Tap Schedule to confirm all settings and schedule the update.
