Magiccolor 2450 factory reset password

Is there a way to completely reset to factory defaults?  Also what is the password to enter service mode to diagnose a problem.

    Thank you for the help.. And quick response.!!


    But the problem seems to be beyond connected with the system admin tool. I upgraded the firmware for mac 10.4 over a year ago and it started to act flakey ever since.. Dropping usb connections etc. 
    It has not been used for awhile and I recently reconnected it since another printer failed. I got one print out and it seemed to freeze up several times when I was spooling the next. Now during boot it makes all the correct sounds but the LCD screen stays in "initializing" and the ready light never comes on. I still have access to the front panel menus and I can get to the service menu scree. it asks for a password, appears to be all digits. I tried "1234" but no go.. 
    I think I should be able to reset the defaults from there? also is there a way to flush out the updated firmware and go back to the original, which seemed to work fine.

Thanks great link.. But after digging around all night I did find this fix. This would allow me to just reload the entire firmware. 
On a non-functional printer the firmware can not be rewritten or upgraded using the firmware update utility. 
The controller firmware (in a XXXXXX.sys format) will have to be sent to the printer via the parallel port. 
 
Connect the machine to the PC using an IEEE 1284 parallel cable. (The printer should be switched off.) 
Copy the firmware data (XXXXXX.sys) to any directory on the PC. 
Holding down the Menu Select key and arrow up key on the control panel at the same time, turn on the 
printer’s power switch. 
To select YES or NO for each of the items shown below, use the > or < key. Then press the Menu 
Select key. 
[UPDATE PRINTER]: YES 
[REPLACE CODE]: YES 
  [REPLACE ALL FONT]: NO 
  [REPLACE SYS FONT]: NO 
  [UPDATE NOW]: YES 
Make sure that the message SEND DATA NOW appears on the control panel. 
Start the Command Prompt on your PC and go to the directory in which the firmware data is stored. 
Type copy /b XXXXXX.sys lpt1: and then press the Enter key (XXXXXX is the firmware data file name). 
 
After the firmware update has completed, the printer will reboot.

Resor factury shdls router ct524(hardwair)??????No reset button on the back of the modem!!!!!!!!!!!!


The factory reset is completed via the configuration page. Enter the IP address of the router in your browser and then login. For
example, if the IP address is 192.168.1.1, enter http:// 192.168.1.1 Look for Erase and Reboot and click to reset to factory defaults. Caution! If you reset your device to the factory default, any changes to
parameters will be lost and all parameters will revert to their default values.
Try root at the default username and password unless it was changed. (or root and 12345). I am not aware of a hardware factory reset i.e. pin hole.

How can I reset an Everfocus ECOR264-16X1 DVR back to defaults?


There are two methods to reset. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the Device from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Are you familiar with the printer's PageScopeWeb Connection.
You can access it with your web browser and reset the printer from that page. Instructions for IE are on page 117. The password is SYSADMIN. The printer's ip address is 192.168.1.2 per the manual. unless you have it networked with a different IP.

Kyocera Copier Password (KM-4050)


The factory default password should be 4000. If thast doesn't work you will have to reset or display the admin password in service mode.

To enter service mode hit the ststus button and then type 10871087. Scroll through the menu with the * and # keys. If you make changes in service mode and do not know what you are doing you can cause the copier to permanently fail.
