Hi everyone,

I'm in possession of a Samsung WEC8050 wireless controller, and can't for the life of me figure out how to factory reset the darn thing without a master admin password.

I know the original 'samsung' user still exists on there, but passwords have been lost.

I've removed the battery from it, and even tried in the console, but it still wants the password.

Just want it factory new again and am scratching my head.

Samsung themselves are of no help.

:-(

Not sure if you can get in far enough to do this but I found this in the manual:

I found this command in the operations manual: WEC8500# factory-reset (full-erase)

What you might try is adjusting this command to: WEC8050# factory-reset

Sadly, I can't even get that far.

I'm guessing there's no hardware trick or anything for these.
