    Konica C284e "Preparing to connect to external server please wait"

    Konica C284e "Preparing to connect to external server please wait" message and displays the following:

    Authentication Device________________________
    ID & PW __________________Access Basic Screen

    From the menu screen at the top states To begin authentication Press the Access Key.

    Also has constant C-180 code. Obviously the machine was using an authentication device. To get rid of this the following was attempted:

    Initialized all in service mode ---- no change
    Format HDD (Physical & Logical)-----no change
    Went into service mode and hit Stop 9 to see management option---says card 3 but no option to clear it or reset it.
    Installed latest FW------no change
    Admin mode never is available under Utility button

    Any suggestions certainly appreciated.

    management function choice needs to be unset.
    also look in loadable drivers and delete them if present

    Hi..
    initialize all should remove that screen.
    Press access button on the op panel then press menu button >utility to access to admin menu
    admin menu > user authentication > general >set user auth to none

    at service mode > stop 9 > management function > press unrest to remove card reader check

    Hope this help.

    Agreed, but there is no option to uninstall that management function choice that I can find in service mode under Stop 9 and then selecting management ------- and also admin mode is completely unavailable. Could you elaborate on the procedure you follow to disable / unset that management function choice ? I am pretty sure all that needs to be done is uninstalling or disabling that authentication option. Just had no joy so far as to how that is done.

    Appreciate the reply, initialize all did not do anything. The initialize procedure completed normally with no error and prompted to cycle power. When we hit the access key we just get to a error screen that says C-180 code and hitting menu does not go anywhere. I do believe that admin mode would allow me to set user auth to none but admin mode is unavailable. Service mode is available but stop 9 > management function > is working but it has no option to press unset to remove card reader check. It only displays the highlighted installed card 3 option. No unset or way to clear.

    Also tried to use a back door work around by starting up the service mode from the trouble reset screen but still got the same options.

    turn printer on with network cable disconnected. Should eventually allow you to select admin mode

    Use NVM reset tool firmware to reset machine to factory default. A145FW.TAR

    No, that's not working.....network cable was never connected.

    Admin mode is what will probably allow me to get past this but access is disabled. Initializing copier and formatting hdd was what I thought would help, but no luck.

    Seems like overkill but maybe I'll just try the reset tool and see what happens.

    Appreciate all of your replies.

    i wouldnt stress about drivers. u can ahppily have those loaded even without the device connected it wont matter.

    id say the error codes from missing authentication/card reader is the reason it wont allow u in admin mode. i suspect admin mode access is a side effect. you really need to disable the AU device. id bet once thats disabled your troubles will be over
