A bunch of used low mileage bizhubs came in from km at the place where I buy my wholesale copiers here in town, and they were all using the "cf" card or whatever its called where the user needs to put in their card to use the copier, and whoever removed these units from the end user did not have the sense to insert each card and disable the "card 3" or whichever when you go to the service mode and then enter "clear" "9". Without the card I cannot get into the adminstrator area to turn off authentification, there is a HDD Password that is needed. I cant uninstall the HDd through the service mode either. When you touch the "not installed" it just beeps but never changes. The information is stored in the NVRAM and the only way I have found around it is to change that with another same bizhub model, which leaves me with a "license management error" and of course the copy count is different than the physical meter.
There has to be a back door, security or not. Maybe shorting pins or some other way. I have two already in the field and would like to put the correct NVRAM back in and there are a couple others with low copy counts that I would like to sell.
Has anyone experienced this. Can anyone give me a heads up on this.Thanks in advance.
