Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
We are church looking to sell our ektaprint 90e. It hasn't been used for a few years and someone put an access code on the machine. They are no longer affiliated with the church.
Is there a procedure to manually override the code to gain access to the system? We would like to evaluate if this is saleable or if we should just haul it to the dump.
Wow, that is a very good copier although quite old.Unless the wheels have been run off of it its a keeper. I used to work for Kodak when they marketed this machine and I was a service tech for them. Great machine. I had one that had 6 million copies on it and was still worth keeping. Now to the point. Unfortunately this copier has a physical "jumper" inside the back panel that has been removed which causes the copier to expect some type of additional action to provide access to the device. There were several ways to gain access (access codes, external controllers, even a card like a credit card) to the copier once this jumper was removed. The jumper is actually a small connector that fits on the end of a wiring harness that basically completes a circuit to tell the copier to be ready. Without the jumper, the copier is waiting for an external device or virtual device to "complete" the circuit. It has been over 10 years since I touched one, so I am sorry that I can't recall the exact location of the wiring harness. However,typically the "jumper" (a small connector with a mere loop of wire from one pin to another) is tied near or onto the place it belongs. So I guess my point is that the copier is worth the time it would take to remove the covers and inspect the wiring in hopes of noticing a stray connector that is just dangling. I wish I could be of more help, but maybe I have been some help. Take care and good luck. :-) ................spinal........
