bought a few of these off lease and they all come up with network error-network cable not connected. also says bootp or dhcp problem. i want to return these to non network machines. tried centerware download to correct it there but cant get it downloaded. is there anyway to return these to there original state. thanks-- tuey
This is normal behavior for machines that expect dhcp configurations, which is the factory default iirc.
You can try a couple things, disable both ipv4 and ipv6, should clear the warning, or disable tcp/ip all together.
Additionally you could probably just disable the dhcp and enter an address manually, this way you can get back into centre-ware if needed.
thank you daan, i'll try your suggestions. i cannot get centerware to down load from xerox, they say i need a windows program, forget the name, and when i try and download the windows software it fails to load after 30 minutes so i cant get centerware downloaded. i'll let you know - thanks again--tuey
Centreware is the webservice running on the device. Hook it up to a network with dhcp or configure the ip manually on the device. Then you can access the web interface by entering the ip of the printer into your browser.
thats more what i'm looking for, resets the machine back to factory specs ? but i would have to find someone who can make the rj45 loop, never done that. i do not have a network to hook the machine to in my office or warehouse so the centerware solution is out. some of the older xerox you could reset to factory specs from control panel, i tried turning off some of the features in networking and some of the messages went away but still wants that network solution. thank-you for the help
i will try that, i thought i was going to have to go to a data cabler to get something like that made, i know one but a computer shop would be much more convenient. thank you adriansto for the tip, will that reset any xerox machine back to factory?
