    Samsung Webmin Password.. Needs reseting

    We have a Samsung CLP-510 Network, we stupidly left the webmin Security option unticked, it looks like a students has logged into the printers webpage and set a password!!

    Samsung firstly took 35minutes to accept there was a password option within the printer (asking me to enter windows auth or contact the IT department!)
    They then said that this password cannot be reset !!

    I told her that this was a new printer and we need to reset this password, she said sorry, is there anything else i can help you with?

    I then called Digicare who do Samsungs repairs, they suggested that it cannot be done.

    This surely cannot be true !!! You have to throw a brand new printer away just because the password is set?

    In the case where the SyncThru web service password does not work or has been forgotten use the last 8 digits of the units network card MAC address.

    If all that fails and you cant do a factory reset its time to get creative with a dictionary.

    What did you enter as the user ID ? Leave it blank and the password is the last 8 digits of the Mac address.....

    Not a problem, E-mail them instead demanding you want a detailed responce as to why you only found this out from a third party. What they have offered as so called customer service is shocking.

    I've just run into the same problem with a SCX-3205W printer. It doesn't let me enter a password only.
    Actually, I had changed the password in the configuration dialogue, and I typed it twice including the confirmation box. Now neither the old nor the new password work. Splendid. Any hints on resetting the thing would greatly be appreciated!

    Hallo erstmal, ich habe einen CLX-3185FN und habe das Passwort gešndert. Nun kann ich mich weder mit dem alten noch neuen Passwort anmelden. Das mit der ID und letzten 8 Stellen der Mac Adresse habe ich schon probiert, er will immer eine Eingabe im ID Feld. Kann mir dringend jemand helfen? Vielen Dank im Voraus.
    MfG
