Question about Lexmark X4500 MFP Flatbed Scanner

1 Answer

Administrator Password Reset to factory default

I bought an X4500 from a salvage yard - it has the scanner on top with the 630 B/W Laser and 5 paper trays plus the duplex unit. It prints just fine from the network. Copies locally as well. The problem is the remote scan to one of the networked systems. I called Lexmark, explained in the problem detail "I need to be able to reset the Administrators password to a factory default", that way I can build scanner accounts for any user on my net. So far, no one at Lexmark has a clue as to what I'm talking about. I need a person from the field service support level to just tell me what they would do if a printer came back off lease and they had to turn it around to another account. HELP!

Dell inspiron laptop 1545 administrator password won't unlock

Will it boot into the operating system or is it stuck at the bios password?
If it is the Windows administrator password then I'll need more information such as what version of Windows you are on. If it is Linux then let me know.

If it is stuck with a bios/boot password then you'll need to reset it by removing the CMOS battery for a few seconds. This will clear any settings in the BIOS setup.

Reset password for administrator

You can reset the administrator password, but it's recommended that you have your servicing dealer do this for you as it involves getting into the system menu etc.

Here is a link to a blog entry with the default administrator passwords in case you haven't tried them.

I bought it from my cousin my internet got cut off so i had it cut back on and nnow i dont no the security code to use it

There should be a small button on the router, Sometimes labeled "reset". It's often red/orange and you may need a paper clip to press it. Push the button while the router is plugged in and it will reset the router to factory defaults.

After, that when logging in, just click submit as the router has no password from the factory.


And the source about the password

I turn on my X4500 scanner, It begins the inialization, gets to 100% and just sits there. It does not progress any further.

Usually that's a network problem, try doing a factory default of the network base hold the right and the check button "go" button til you see the menu for maintenance then look for network restore part, do a factory default of the network and then restart the scanner again after the printer starts up again

should be good to go

Password for belkin router

If you have the router, the default username and password is usually printed on the bottom if not try these.

Username | Password
Admin (none)
Administrator (none)
Admin password
Administrator password
Admin admin
Administrator admin

try these in any order and switch round passwords to usernames these are the default passwords, if these dont work, then a simple push button reset will sort you out.
