How to disable Print Audit Embedded for Sharp when there is no network

Question: If our network is down, the Print Audit Embedded for Sharp Application won't allow us to use the copier.  How can we disable the Print Audit Embedded if we can't get to the Sharp configuration page via a web browser?


  1. At the Sharp MFP, select "System Settings".
  2. At the prompt "Log in as Administrator", select Yes.
  3. At the Password Prompt, enter the administrator password for the MFP.
