System (BIOS) Password Reset

If you have forgotten your BIOS or system password, there are no software tricks or magical gimmicks that will get the password cleared. Laptops are different in that they are designed to not work with “backdoors” etc. for security reasons. There is one true way that works most of the time and that is hardware.
The Cmos (RTC) battery that is mounted on the motherboard in most cases holds the key, if your motherboard has the battery that is connected to the motherboard by using a two wire socket that plugs into the MOBO, then here is the procedure.
On the motherboard where the battery plugs into, you will see two pins sticking straight up, these engage the plug on the battery side. These two pins have to be “shorted” and then the motherboard powered up for approx. 30 seconds, then power down the system and replace the Cmos battery and reboot. Your password problem should be cleared up. The best way to “short” the pins is get another cmos battery and cut the wires from the battery part, bare the ends and twist together, this will short the pins. Make sure you tape the connection good on the jumper you just made….don’t want to touch anything else with powered up bare wires. Good luck.

Hi there,

best solution is to reset the router to default settings:

In order to do that use a pen or paper clip to push the reset button for around 30 seconds.

Please download and refer to manual I linked below:

I have konica minolta bizhub pro c500 machine, that is password protected, I don't know the password. how can i reset password?


You dont specify what you want the password to. So here are some options to try.

If you want admin access to the Fiery print controller the default password is "Fiery.1"

The default operator password for a Creo server is "colorserver"

I'm not positive about the default admin password for the C500 but I'd try these.
eight zeros: "00000000"
or: "12345678"

If these don't work chances are someone has changed them from the default. On the Fiery or Creo this usually means a software reload. On the machine a service rep can probably reset the admin password.
