To log in as a user:

Logging in is the process by which you identify yourself to the printer for authentication. If authentication is set, to access printer features, you log in with your user credentials.

  1. At the printer control panel, press the Home button.
  2. Touch Log In.
  3. Type the User Name using the keypad, then touch Enter.
  4. If prompted, enter the password, then touch Enter.
  5. Touch OK.

    Note: To access each password-protected service, enter the User Name and password.

To log in as a system administrator:

  1. At the printer control panel, press the Home button.
  2. Touch Log In.
  3. If present, touch admin, otherwise, use the keypad to type admin, then touch Next.
  4. Type the administrator password, then touch OK

    For software versions earlier than PL6 (XX.5X.XX), the default administrator password is 1111. For software versions PL6 (XX.5X.XX) or later, the default administrator password is the device serial number. You can obtain the serial number from the back of the printer, from the configuration report, or from the home page of the Embedded Web Server. The password is case-sensitive.

    Note: Upgrading to PL6 (XX.5X.XX) does not change the administrator password. If you reset to the device to factory defaults, the administrator password changes to the device serial number for versions PL6 (XX.5X.XX) or later of the software.
