What If You Do Not Have the Admin Password?

This is the trickier part. You do not have the administrator password to access WIM. I have found a solution on the Internet which might help you solve this problem. Please be aware that I do not personally own a Aficio SP 4100N so this solution might not be working.

You can change/delete a admin password by logging into WIM (Web Image Monitor) with the default user name and password:

  1. Username: supervisor
  2. Password: (leave blank, there is no password).
If the Supervisors account details have been changed and you do not know the details, you will have to do a NVRAM replacement to regain control and access to the machine. A NVRAM (Non-volatile random access memory) is a piece of computer memory chip where all the user login and password information/settings are stored in your Aficio SP 4100N.
