Reset MikroTik through LCD TouchScreen when reset button procedure fails

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/12/13

I wanted access to a supposedly reset a MikroTik [WayBack] MikroTik CRS109-8G-1S-2HnD-IN, but the default credentials did not work. Somehow, keeping the reset button pushed for almost 20 seconds also did not reset+reboot it.

Luckily, the default PIN code was still 1234 ([WayBack] Manual:LCD TouchScreen: PIN code – MikroTik Wiki) so I could reset it ([WayBack] Manual:LCD TouchScreen: Reboot and Reset Configuration – MikroTik Wiki).

After this, I changed credentials and PIN, documented configuration and credentials, and ensured there is a back-up of that documentation available.

Note: fiddling with power and reset button might have worked, though it is odd the CRS109 documentation does not mention this. PIN code worked faster, so that’s what solved my issue first.
