The following information describes how to register userIDs and usernames, login names, and passwords for authenticating accesses attempted through the network for scanning services, and impose restrictions on the maximum number of pages to be copied or scanned. Up to 500 user accounts can be registered.
NOTE: You must be a System Administrator to perform this solution.

  1. Press the [Log In / Out] button on the Control Panel. The Login screen will be displayed.
  2. Enter the System Administrator userID using the numeric keypad on the Control Panel, or select the [Keyboard] button on the Touch Screen to enter the userID, and then select [Save] on the Touch Screen.
  3. If necessary, enter the System Administrator password using the numeric keypad, or select the [Keyboard] button to enter the password, and then select [Save] on the Touch Screen.

    NOTE: The default userID is 11111, and the default password is x-admin (must be entered in lower case). If the userID and / or password have been forgotten, a service call must be placed.

  4. Select [Confirm] on the Touch Screen. The System Administrator Menu screen will be displayed.
  5. Select [System Settings]. The System Settings screen will be displayed.
  6. Select [Login / Auditron Administration]. The Login Setup / Auditron Administration screen will be displayed.
  7. Select [Create / Check User Accounts]. The Create / Check User Accounts screen will be displayed.
  8. Select a user account number or use the numeric keypad to enter a user account number in the Go to (001-500) field.
  9. Select [Create / Delete]. The User Account screen will be displayed.
  10. Enter a userID using the keypad on the Touch Screen, and then select [Save]. The Create / Delete screen will be displayed.
  11. Select from the following options:
    • UserID: Allows a userID to be entered using the keyboard on the Touch Screen. Up to 32 alphanumeric characters can be entered including spaces.
    • User Name: Allows a username to be entered using the keyboard on the Touch Screen. Up to 32 alphanumeric characters can be entered including spaces.
    • Password: Allows a password to be entered using the keyboard on the Touch Screen. 4 to 12 alphanumeric characters can be entered. The Password button is also displayed if a password was selected on the Login Setup / Auditron Mode screen.
    • Remote Login Settings: The following settings can be modified on this screen:
      • Login Name - Allows a login name to be programmed that needs to be entered when the machine is accessed through the network.
      • Password - Allows a password to be programmed that needs to be entered when the machine is accessed through the network.
    • Account Limit: Select [Copy Service] or [Scan Service], and then select [Account Limit]. Using the numeric keypad on the Control Panel, specify and restrict the maximum number of pages to be copied or scanned for the account. The maximum number can be entered within the range of 1-9,999,999 pages.
    • Reset Total Impressions: Deletes all data tracked for the selected account.

Xerox workcenter m-133 and the error code is 010-313 and how to fix it

Perhaps the info here might be of help to you...

Fuser Related Status Codes & how to reset them:

C123 style (C123/128/133, M123/128/133, Pro123/128/133) 010-313 Fuser Control Thermistor failure (open Control Thermistor) 010-314 Fuser Side Thermistor failure (open Side Thermistor) 010-318 Fuser temperature did not rise quickly enough during heating cycle 010-320nakeder Overheat (must be reset from diagnostics by resetting NVM (Non Volatile Memory code 744-220 back to "0") * 010-327* Fuser took too long to warm up (must be reset from diagnostics by resetting NVM (Non Volatile Memory code 744-220 back to "0") * * C123 style: Resetting Fuser Codes (010-320, & 010-327) Accomplished by resetting NVM code 744-220 to '0'... First enter UI (User Interface) Diagnostic Mode: Hold down the '0' button for 5 seconds and then press the 'Start' button while still holding the '0' button. The machine will prompt you for a Password. Enter the default Access Number: '6789' and press "Confirm". The colors on the display will be reversed to indicate that you're now in diagnostic mode. Next press the Dual Heat Lamp Assembly (C123 version) 201-387-7776 Page 4 of 5 AC Connector: C123 version "Log In/Out" button on the Control Panel. Select 'System Settings', 'Common' Settings, followed by 'Maintenance / Diagnostics'. Now you will find the main menu includes one choice called "NVM Read / Write" (NVM is Non Volatile Memory)... Now you can enter your "Chain-Link" code (in this case 744-220) and press 'Confirm / Change'. The current value will appear (if the machine is in a fuser fault condition, the value will be set to "1"). Select the "New Value" column and input your new value ('0'). Select "Save" and the new number should now appear in the "Current Value" column. You can turn the power off and back on at this point. The machine will attempt to warm up the fuser again. If the condition which caused the fault in the first place is still happening, the Status Code will return after a few minutes of attempting to warm up. C118 style (C118, M118, M118i) U4-1000 (U4-1) Fuser failure (did not come up to temperature in time)... must be reset from diagnostics (NVM code 50-20 must be reset to '0')*. U4-2000 (U4-2) Fuser over temperature.... Must be reset from diagnostics (NVM code 50-19 must be reset to '0')*. U4-3000 (U4-3) Fuser thermistor circuit is detected as being an open circuit. * C118 style: Resetting Fuser Codes (U4-1 or U4-2): Enter diagnostics (from the powered on state, hold down the '0' button and then press 'Start'. The display will change to opposite colors to show you it's in diagnostics)... Select 'Chain-Func' in the 'CE Setting' screen by using the 'Select' button, followed by 'Enter'. Select "NVRAM R/W". Enter the "Chain" (in this case '50'). Next select "Func" (function) by using the "Select" button. Enter the "function" ('20' if you're clearing a U4-1 code or '19' for clearing a U4-2 code) followed by 'Start'. The current value for that memory code (50-20 or 50-19 in these cases) will appear in the "Read" column (if the machine is in a U4-1 or U4-2 status condition, the value will read as '1'). Change the value by pressing the "Select" button at the "Read" column to switch to "Write". Enter a '0' for the new value, and then press 'Start'. Finally, select "Write NVM". You'll probably be well served by being able to test the lamp and thermistor circuits from the AC Connector so you know what you're looking to replace before you even rip into the fuser. On the C123 & WC-5225 versions, there are slots for 8 pins (2 rows of 4 arranged vertically). Pin 7 is on the upper left and Pin 8 on the upper right is empty. Pins 7 & 1 are one of the two Heat Lamp Circuits. Each Heat Lamp Circuit goes through its respective half of the Heat Lamp Assembly, and then through both thermal fuses to the return wire (pin 7 is the return wire which is common to both heat lamp circuits). Pins 7 & 3 are the other Heat Lamp Circuit. If either Thermal Fuse is blown, neither lamp circuit will conduct. If one circuit measures good and the other measures bad, then the Heat Lamp Assembly must have failed. The Thermistor circuits for the C123 are between Pins 2 & 4 and Pins 5 & 6. If you set your meter to 200K ohms, you can measure the Thermistors... they should measure a high resistance and then if you were to warm up the Thermistor's head, the resistance should begin to drop. These Thermistors are unusual in that the heads are ***** (no yellow kapton tape). 201-387-7776 Page 5 of 5 AC Connector: C118 version The C118 fuser's AC Connector is shaped the same as the C123 version (slots for 8 pins) however there are only 4 pins actually present and they numbered the pins differently for this one. On this one, Pin 2 is in the upper left corner and Pin 1 is in the upper right. On this connector, Pins 1 & 3 form the Heat Lamp Circuit. The Thermistor Circuit is between Pins 2 & 6. Hope this turns out to be valuable information for you. It'd be a shame to replace one of these fusers and then throw out or return the used one without at least inspecting it for the possibility of fixing it for the next customer who needs one. Be a green-tech and fix'em when you can. Happy Repairs everyone!
