Factory Reset an Ubuntu Digital Signage Player Question


I need to do a factory reset on a 5 year old Ubuntu based digital signage player.

I can access the control panel but I cannot initiate a factory reset as it is password protected.

I purchased it from a US based company years ago.

No experience when it comes to Ubuntu ha ha ha…

Any simple way of using a usb flash drive and it will take care of the factory reset by itself ha ha ha…

    Model number?

    • ^^ Will need more info to get an idea of what your best way of fixing this will be, digital signs I'd imagine probably vary in the controllers that they use

    Someone found a traffic sign with unlocked control panel.

    • Unlocked control box, unlocked wheels and no trailer lock. Then towed it home and now wants to use it on their front lawn.

    • Shhhh…. :-)

  • Next up, How to input "420/69 Nice!"?

  • Ha ha ha google Ubuntu.

    • Thank you for all the replies.

      It makes sense guys :-)

  • Five years old, is the maker even still supporting it? I been using raspberry pi for digital signage and it's mostly alright. Would probably look at a TV with the software built in though if I were to do it all over again.
