Updating the terminal

Updating terminals is identical to installing new terminals. You need to delete the old package and install the newer installation package (*.pkg). The older version of the MyQ Embedded terminal is automatically updated and all its settings are kept.

To update the Embedded terminal:

  1. Open the Printers settings tab (MyQ, Settings, Printers)

  2. On the tab under Terminal packages, Delete the old Embedded terminal package and Add the new one.

  3. Open the Printers main tab (MyQ, Printers).

  4. Re-activate all the devices.

To upgrade from version 6.2.0, you need to change two settings from the previous setup on the printing device's Web UI:

  • Properties > Login/Permissions/Accounting > Accounting Methods > Validation Policies / Print Job Exceptions: set Enablement to Disable.

  • Properties > Login/Permissions/Accounting > Accounting Methods > Accounting Workflow : set Print Jobs to Pre- Authorization and Capture Usage.

To upgrade from versions older than 6.2.0, reset the printing device to its factory default state, and then do the full installation of the new version.

If you have MyQ Server 8.2 patch 6 or higher, updating the terminal is done on the MyQ web administrator interface:

  1. Open the Printers & Terminals settings tab (MyQ, Settings, Printers & Terminals).

  2. On the Terminal packages section, select the installed terminal package, and click Upgrade on the ribbon (or right-click, Upgrade).

  3. Browse and open the latest terminal package, and click OK.

  4. The terminal package is uploaded and installed, and the device is automatically reactivated.

If you are trying to +Add a later version of the same terminal package, a pop-up informs you that you can upgrade your installation. Click Yes to continue. The terminal package is uploaded and installed, and the device is automatically reactivated. (MyQ Server 8.2 patch 6 or higher is required)

Uninstalling the terminal

To uninstall the MyQ terminal, simply reset the printing device to its factory default state.

Another option is to remotely uninstall the embedded terminal from the MyQ web administrator interface. For this option to work, however, it is required to set printer credentials to the printer properties in MyQ or to the configuration profile during the remote installation. It isn’t possible to uninstall the Xerox embedded terminal without the credentials.

To remotely uninstall, go to MyQ, Printers. Double-click on the printer. The properties panel opens on the right side of the screen. In the General tab, under Configuration, change the Configuration Profile to No Terminal. Click Save and re-activate the printer.

For Xerox EIP 3.0 and lower, it is also necessary to manually disable the login methods on the device web user interface.
