Question about Konica Minolta Magicolor 2450 Printer
Is there a way to completely reset to factory defaults? Also what is the password to enter service mode to diagnose a problem.
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
• [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.
