Turning on wireless radio button HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

I need to turn on my wireless radio button on my computer.  It has been working great until today.  I tried to use the touch screen functions and it says it is unable to because of the setup of the system admin or owner of the computer, which is me.   

 

I have a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

Hello delrayfan-

 

I have seen this password error happen before. We can reset this. click on your setup button (front panel of printer).

then click on Network. Scroll down to "Restore Network Settings"

After you do this, you should be able to turn radio on and run the wireless setup wizard.

Make sure you don't have a Ethernet cable plugged into the back of the printer, as this will disable the wireless radio.

Let me know if this works.

Re: Turning on wireless radio button HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus

I can't because the restore network defaults has a lock on and is says system admin locked it which I didn't.  I have the ethernet cable plugged in.  This has always been plugged in.  Something happened in the last week and the wireless radio buttin went off.   Is there a way to reset everything from the beginning, like i had just bought it?

 

Thanks,

Chris

Hello Chris-

 

Try unplugging the Ethernet cable (then go into settings menu) and see if Radio light comes back on. The radio will work with a USB cable plugged in , but not with an Ethernet cable. There is a way to do a semi-full reset.  On the Touch screen, touch the bottom left ( just outside the lcd screen) 4 times. (look for a curved arrow) . You should see support menu. Touch that. Use right arrow and go to resets menu.Once at resets menu hit "OK". Arrow to the right to semi-full reset. Then hit OK. This should go back to out of box settings.
