Reset WorkCentre 24, Xerox


I have inherited a Xerox WorkCentre 24 as one of the machines on the network... person before me set different admin code for getting into machine, default is 11111... Xerox wants $332 to send a tech to reset code!!!

Anyone know what buttons to push to reset WorkCentre 24 back to factory default?

Thank you...

    There does not seem to be a service tab... you are talking about at the machine in the touch pad window...

    Sorry but the information for this Xerox that you mention do not seem to be here... there are 3 buttons that get you 3 sets of screens and " Information" button, then "troubleshooting" then the "Service Tools" menu do not appear under any of them...

    This is a Xerox WorkCentre 24 that does copying and printing from the network...

    The info below are what the 3 buttons get me to...

    Allows you to alternate between scanning and copying feature


    Job Status
    Allows you to check or cancel jobs currently executing, or to

    check or print saved documents.

    Machine Status
    Allows you to check the machine status, meters, the state of

    consumables, and output reports.

In menus you browse to the service tab, then serivice diagnostics. Go to NVRAM reset and perform the NVM reset.
Before you do that, print out a configuration page if you want to rememebr the network settings. It will set the IP address back to default also.

    Press the " Information" button, then "troubleshooting" then the "Service Tools" menu.

    With the cursor at the top of the "service Tools" menu, press both the up and down arrow buttons and that will display the service menu.

    Scroll to the NVRAM reset.

    That will reset the machine back to factory settings.
    I was thinking the 2424 had the menu right in the machine status. Sorry.
    Please rerate. This is the procedure for doing a reset.

  • Rick Kasper Apr 03, 2008

    the information I gave is directly from the C2424 Service manual. You have an E-mail or fax number I can send it to you.

  • Rick Kasper Apr 03, 2008

    E-mail address would be better, I will just send as an attachment.

  • Rick Kasper Apr 03, 2008

    Good Lord, I am so sorry, I zoned out on the model totally.

    I have sent you the correct procedure for the Workcenter 24 via E-mail. That process will do exactly what you are asking.

    My mind got stuck on the 2424 and just kept picturing the procedure for a 2424. So sorry.

    Hi Rick, I'm having the same problem with my workcentre 24. Could you send me this procedure by mail aswel ([email protected]). I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance. Gardy Toonen

Call Xerox to have it corrected. You may need to have the main pwb checked or replaced anyway.
Not a simple solution as it sounds.

From experience, I wouldn't do it...
The different series usually have slightly different toner composition, so you may find that your copier will be majorly over-toned or under-toned. by doing that.
I personally wouldn't risk it, and I have been in the industry 24 years...

You have to have a fully configured laptop with several levels of Xerox software.
Once that is accessed though you can change those numbers to max them out for the life of the machine.
Where do you live? Maybe I can find someone to do it for you.

Adding xerox workcentre 24 driver to new computer

If you press the machine status button.
Print reports
Common Settings. It will include the printer settings.
IP address, printer name etc. I think that information is on page 3.
But you can print those settings easily.
If you need to change them.
Log into the machine with the login or access button, the either 1111 or 11111, will access the tools you need to set up the network.
Make sure you set the IP for manual, not auto, and also turn OFF the IP filter.
If the printer is set to DCHP and auto, it will change the IP on you every time you POPO.
