Details

mandatory four-digit password
Values:
any four-digit numeric sequence

Default:

The
b
parameter applies only to the S4M printers.
Example:
This example shows how to set a new control panel password:
^XA ^KP5678 ^XZ
Example:
This example shows how to set a new control panel password (5678) at a specific password level (level 2) (applicable to the S4M printer only):
^XA ^KP5678,2 ^XZ
Comments:
If you forget your password, the printer can be returned to a default Setup Mode and the default password 1234 is valid again. Caution should be used, however — this also sets the printer configuration values back to their defaults.
To return the printer to the default factory settings using ZPL, send this:
^XA ^JUF ^XZ
To return the printer to the default factory settings using the control panel keys, see your printer’s User Guide for the procedure.
