Anything not considered the default settings causes the message because the printer thinks it possible that somebody is using it, it does not matter if they are 20 minutes into programming a build job, or if someone touched the screen less than the time that auto clear takes place in. The fix is always the same.
Go to the printer and quickly push the Clear All button a bunch of times until it prompts for you to Confirm a clear all.
Once you have selected Confirm you can go back to CWIS and apply the change.
That will work any time it just thinks it is in use, but not if there is a job stuck in the queue, being recieved, or in queue awaiting a stock to be loaded.
Sorry to resscurect this ancient thread but I am having the identical problem on my WorkCentre 7120 System Version 71.23.53. I am simply trying to add an email address within the CentreWare for scan to email but I get the message "Your request was not processed. Unable to enter Administrator Mode. Control panel in use or job in progress." I *am* logged in as the administrator. Anyone know how to remedy this?
How to fix this problem when ever i try to save system settings i get "Your request was not processed. Unable to enter Administrator Mode. Control panel in use or job in progress"
only by off/on the machine then i can do settings saved.
