So apparently I put a lock code into my soldering iron while trying to set a temperature preset, but I have no idea what the code was.

This is why I now have a spreadsheet of all the numbers between 1 and 999 so that I can record which ones I’ve tried.

Maybe I should create a Mastodon bot account posting every code that I attempt.

@mo I once brute forced a three digit lock I forgot only to discover past me was being clever and had set it to "egg" (366)

@ultranurd I’ve already tried 420 just in case 🙂

Because I thought I was setting a temperature preset I’ve prioritised multiples of 10 around 400°C. And values like 25’s and 75’s. Still nothing!

@ricobeck the factory reset isn’t working, like the poster on Reddit mentioned. Though I might keep trying since the OP said they eventually got the reset to work!
