Unable to Authenticate via Manual Login After Printer Repair


You cannot authenticate on a printer’s control panel via Manual Login in order to release a Lexmark Print Management (LPM) print job. Card authentication works.

This happens after the printer has been repaired (e,g., system board replacement).
