Question about Sharp MX-2300N Color Copier

Cannot change network settings - Admin password unknown

Previous employee left with all passwords, and cannot contact to recover them. Need to modify network (alter static IP address and subnet mask), but cannot see any way into that setting, other than (I assume) via the "administrator", for which we dont know password (tried 00000000, 12345678, etc, etc..).
Is there a maintenance mode through which we can re-set the admin password (and I assume wipe out email address book).. but anyhting is better than nothing.

Got in with random trialling passwords for the Administrator... finally found the default password for Administrator on the Sharp MX2300N was "admin". Should have known...

Got in, set up the IP's and away we go again. Did not have to go in with any maintenance mode or re-setting the whole system.

    There is a simulation mode which will reset the admin password if this has been changed, Make sure you are on the copy screen and then select # * C + = hash star the RED C button and then Star. This must be done in a fluent motion and not hesitant finger movement. You should see a big list of simulation numbers. Plese dont mess with any of these if you dont know what you are doing. OK now type in number 24 then press the copy button (as to make a copy) then hit 31 this should say service password initialisation. click on execute and yes then press CA button. and it should either restart or go back to the copy screen. the password is reset !! enjoy.

Yes, the default admin on MOST MX model Sharp machines is admin

On the old Sharp models the username is admin and the password is Sharp from the webpage, and the key operator code at the copier's touch screen is 00000.

I forgot admin password


To reset the SWS (SyncThru Web Service) password:

  1. Press the Menu button.
  2. Press the right or left arrow until Network appears, then press OK.
  3. Press the right or left arrow until Clear Settings appears, then press OK.
  4. Select Yes and press OK.
  5. After the printer finishes clearing the network settings, unplug it for a few seconds then plug it in again.
  6. All network settings (including the SWS password) will be reset. If you had manually configured IP info or were connected to a wireless network, you will need to re-enter those settings now.
  7. The login will default back to admin and the password will be sec00000.

Note: If you did not change your password or this is your first time trying to use the SyncThru service, the default SyncThru user/password is admin/sec00000.

I got a used computer, previous owner unknown. It has a Lexmark 5000 printer installed. I do not have access to the administrator user password and this is preventing me from installing my Lexmark X4270...


There are workarounds and ways around the admin password and if you can get in and create another user profile with admin rights. You can google software to crack admin local Windows password to reveal it. There are also boot discs that can crack it instantly which actually deletes it and changes it something you want. The last resort is reinstalling the Windows OS.

Toshiba estudio 3511 will not allow me into the network config


First of all, the default password for Admin is '123456'. The network button is grayed out because network is initializing. Which means the network portion of you copier is trying to boot up. If it never finishes booting up, you will need an authrized technician to re-load system firmware on your machine.
