AIP-SSM20:Can't change password -- Please help

I reset the password using  hw-module command.  But now I can't change the default password of  cisco.  it is rejecting any password combination i tried, uppercase,  lower case, numbers, and non-alphanumerics.  It is probably the password  requrement policy I put in before.  How can I get around this or  restore default confiration?

thank you.
