under service mode: * 2 8 *
with cursor key right, go to clear and press ok, select ALL, and press OK, these will "roll back" copiers settings to factory default, and also cancel the ID management password.

Hope that helped!

Our office have mail boxes set up, one of the mail boxes the person that had it used a pin number and she has left the company. Is there any way to delete her mail box because we don't have the pin number...

Hi lynn,
This is cool.Please give an "atta boy" as you report to "FIXYA". We will need to establish a "system manager" on you device and then you be the BIG DAWG!. :-) Locate the additional fuctions just to the right of the dispay. Press it and then locate "system settings" and press it. New screen, locate "system settings" and press it. Press "system manager settings".Enter a system manager ID #, you need not fill in the password field unless you wish to. Hit "OK" located at the lower right. .Reset out of the screen and go back into System Settings. When asked for the System Manager ID and password, enter the required information. Hit the ID key. While in ID Management Mode, access the mailbox creation screen and the mailbox password will be shown. Access to the mailbox is obtainable and documents can be printed or erased. And the account ITSELF can be removed. Now you not only can do"all that" but you are in charge of so much stuff. Don't worry, at this point you have merely elected to have a system manager which gives you access to REALLY make changes if you choose. Note* I am not sure if you have ever used the "REMOTE USER INTERFACE" , (RUI) , which is how you can use your computer to access the copier and change all the things that can be changed, only you can do it from your desktop.You have now established an "administrator " password by going thru the previous process that gave you access to thye mailboxes. Either write down the password you established or turn off System Manager if you aren't comfortable with this responsibility. You haven't hurt anything, you are just the SYSTEM MANAGE. You GO LYNN> Take care . SPINAL

I would like to Reset/Retrieve Password for Copier Setup Canon, ImageRunner canon ir 2318

If you know the password, then under user mode, i think system sett., must be option for department id management where you can change passwords.

If you dont have pass, you can do clear all under service mode ( * 2 8 * ) if canon changed service mode, like on some series, you can try MENU and #.

Hope that helped

Reset id and password System Manager

Enter service mode by pressing the "additional functions" button, then the "2" and "8" buttons together, then the "additional functions" button again.
You will then go to Copier>Function>Clear and select PWD-CLR. Hit "ok".

Hit the yellow reset button a few times to get back to the regular screen, and you should be able to get into the system settings to change IP config and other settings.

Depending on how it was configured, you may have to restart the machine for the reset to take effect.

Once you change the IP settings, do another restart and wait for about 3 minutes for the machine to get on the network...

Need help adding numbers to speed dials canon imagerunner 1370f

One of the easiest ways to explore this is with the RemoteUI, the web management interface accessable by entering your imageRUNNER's IP address into your web browser's address bar.

I don't have one handy so I cannot be certain, but you will want to look for the Address book. It should be clearly listed on the left hand navigation.

If you are prompted for a password enter your system manager password (used with Job Accounting, usually)
Unless you have a system manager password set, you can login via admin mode with a blank password.
