Reset password on a Switch 2950 catalyst

Hi everyone,

 

In order to create an infrastructure for an exam, we retrieved several Cisco switches that had been used before.We have reset the passwords of many of them, but we encounter a problem with the switch 2950 catalyst. We can't reset it with the normal procedure because the "mode" button is broken

 

Does anyone have a solution for this problem?

 

Thank you in advance and please forgive my syntax mistakes as English is not my native language.

Good day to all

we always follow the same steps : (only place it will not work if any one configured disabled service password-recovery)

if service password-recovery disabled , then you need to with ROMMON process with console.
