Question about Sharp MX-2300N Color Copier
Previous employee left with all passwords, and cannot contact to recover them. Need to modify network (alter static IP address and subnet mask), but cannot see any way into that setting, other than (I assume) via the "administrator", for which we dont know password (tried 00000000, 12345678, etc, etc..).
Is there a maintenance mode through which we can re-set the admin password (and I assume wipe out email address book).. but anyhting is better than nothing.
Got in with random trialling passwords for the Administrator... finally found the default password for Administrator on the Sharp MX2300N was "admin". Should have known...
Got in, set up the IP's and away we go again. Did not have to go in with any maintenance mode or re-setting the whole system.

Yes, the default admin on MOST MX model Sharp machines is admin
On the old Sharp models the username is admin and the password is Sharp from the webpage, and the key operator code at the copier's touch screen is 00000.

Steve GwynneThere is a simulation mode which will reset the admin password if this has been changed, Make sure you are on the copy screen and then select # * C + = hash star the RED C button and then Star. This must be done in a fluent motion and not hesitant finger movement. You should see a big list of simulation numbers. Plese dont mess with any of these if you dont know what you are doing. OK now type in number 24 then press the copy button (as to make a copy) then hit 31 this should say service password initialisation. click on execute and yes then press CA button. and it should either restart or go back to the copy screen. the password is reset !! enjoy.

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.
If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.
To view or reset a wireless network password:
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password
from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to
factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults,
you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!
