Xerox Phaser 6180 MFP-D password

The default password is "00000" If this password does not work you can follow the following to reset it:
  1. Power OFF the machine using the power switch located on the right side of the machine, toward the back. Press the power switch to the (O) position.

  2. Press and hold the [OK] button on the Control Panel.
  3. Continue to hold the [OK] button and power ON the machine. Keep the [OK] button held down until the Ready screen is displayed. The password is now reset to the default Control Panel password, which is 00000.

    NOTE: There will be no confirmation message during or after the machine's power on sequence. However, if the procedure was performed correctly, the password has been reset.

    Worked fine yesterday - will not turn on today - kitchen

    When you say the machine is dead do you mean you are getting no LED lights at all or do you mean it is not booting up? No power and no post are two different things. With no power you get absolutely nothing at all. With no post you may have some LED lights but nothing comes up on the screen. You said power and power supply tested ok. How are you testing it? I need more info please.

    My sister has a Motorola SP4200 router with a Netgear WPN824v2 wireless router/accesspoint/switch connected to it. Previously she had the SP4200 connected to port 1 (not WAN) port on the Netgear as it is...

    it might be asking for a WEP password in order for you to use it which is on the botom of the router or the game sistem is the one causing the trouble and should not be conected to any wirless or eathernet internet routers.

    How can i unlock dell latitude d420 bios password

    Clearing the CMOS will reset the password...
    Take the button cell battery out for a few minutes, put it back in, and all settings, including the password, should go back to defaults.
    Unfortunately it looks like your BIOS battery is under the keyboard...
    Dell has got what looks like decent directions here, for getting at it:
