How to reset a forgotten admin password on a xerox 4150

Posted by on

  • punch46 Oct 02, 2008

    Well actually it wasn't reset , I tried randomly entering 4 digits a number of times and around the 30th or 40th time the digits I entered were accepted as the admin password .. now if I was a mathemetician I could probably work out the odds of this happening. Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket ?

    funny how things work out sometimes ?

Honestly you will have to place a service call to have them reset it.
The default is 1111. But if you changed it and forget it, it will need to have a call to reset it to the default.

Here is the info.

Use the numeric keypad on the Control Panel to enter the default password: [1], [1], [1], [1]. The password will be displayed as asterisks (*) on the Touch Screen.
If you make a mistake, press the [Clear (C)] button and re-enter the password. To cancel the operation, select [Cancel]. If experiencing problems with the password or if the password is forgotten, contact your Administrator. If the Administrator encounters a problem with changing the Access (Tools) code, or forgets the code, Contact Support to place a service call.
1-800-821-2797 is the number

How do I reset the Admin password?

The default ID and password are "11111" and "x-admin" respectively. When accessing the administrator menus on the copier the code 11111 is used. I couldn't find a way to reset specifically.

I believe you should be able to access the Admin Menu by pressing the System button on the operator panel. A password is required to enter Admin Menu when Panel Lock Set is set to Enable. To Disable the Panel Lock you will need a password. The factory default panel password is 0000. Hopefully you haven't changed that. This procedure is described in the manual on pages 315 ff. I believe from there you can go in and assign a new Admin password if required.

Dear friend: On display appears: admin system: introduce the password. The actual condition is we can not get copies. Please can help us?? The model is a Xerox C118 coycentre Regars Vinicio

Try turning the machine off, waiting until it is completely off and then turning back on and trying the default password.
The default password at time of machine install is 11111. If the password has been modified, or you have forgotten the password, contact your System Administrator. If the System Administrator has forgotten the password, a service call must be placed.
Hope it helps!
