Can't reset C505X to Factory Defaults

Product Name: Xerox C505X
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

I have read the other posts here about this subject (for other printers). I am able get into an admin section using the "press the Home button for 8 seconds," suggestion, but once I get into this area, and enter "6789," when I click to do anything further, I get "try again later." Are there any other instructions, specific to this printer, to allow me to get into the settings? I purchased it on eBay, and I do not have any password information that might have previously existed. I need to just set everything back to factory defaults.

What you are trying is the way to enter in Diagnostic Mode which is for techs purpose. 

Anyway you cannot enter because there is a job in progress (Startup Page) and you must delete it from Jobs tab.
