?: administrator password reset CF145A LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw Firmware Datecode 20120907

How do I reset the administrator password if the current administrator password is or becomes lost or unknown?

I saw some information for other models that indicates pressing the right arrow or that along with the X (cancel) button while powering up, but those methods don't appear to work for:

CF145A LaserJet Pro 200 color MFP M276nw Firmware Datecode 20120907

I'm fine with losing and needing to reinput/reload any and/or all existing NVRAM settings (e.g. all the entered configuration settings).

If the nvram is not resetting the password, then you will need to either private message me or call the HP Support for further instructions.
