KX-TVS200 Password Reset

KX-TVS200 Password Reset

KX-TVS200 Password Reset


I'm inheriting a TVS200 system from a previous owner, and I need to reset the system password (or recover it if possible).  Does anyone know how to do this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  


RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

have you tried to plug in a laptop?

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

I don't have the software for the voicemail system, only for the PBX.  So I haven't plugged in a laptop yet.  But if the voicemail software is like the PBX software, you have to enter a password prior to accessing it via a data cable.

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

there is no software except for 3rd party stuff

plug in the same cable as the pbx 9 to 25 with null modem adapter set up hyperterminal
up 9600,8.N.1 no flow control hit enter twice the pass word on the
200 is an installer option so you have a 50/50 chance there is no password on it or if it is not mission critcal
and it its yours to keep why would you not dump it!!

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

Well to be more clear, it's a voicemail system in use at a company I'm working at.  I can't dump it, and they don't know who setup the password on it previously, so they don't know who to contact.  In any case, I have to setup a voicemail box for a user, and I need to reset his voicemail box password also.  But I would like to be able to use a 3rd party software to configure the system.  Do you know if there's a way to reset the system password?

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

hook up a computer and see it may be all you need to do you have a 50/50 chance that the programing port is not passworded and reset or add mailboxes"just do it"

or you can plug in a direct connect modem and beg panasonic to dial in!!

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

If you don't have the password and there is one on the programing port  and boxes  998 + 999 are passworded as well
all the the 3rd party software in the world is not going to help you are SOL!!

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

on the tvp 100 "drowssap" used to bet you in via hyperterminal

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

I've never got that one to work but it worth a try.

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

you can call panasonic tech & show ownership to TVS unit . they have a back door password . you must set-up an modem for  panasonic to your TVS unit . had it done few time for us.

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

password backwards won't work on the latest units.  Dealer backdoor code was disabled for the last production run of TVP/TVS's

RE: KX-TVS200 Password Reset

yes that is true a picked up a new client was able to crack
the 1232 and wound up dumping the tvs and reprograming it

had a zoom 2836 with me and all and they could not backdoor
the unit
