Can not change settings on HP 6600, admin locks prevent any changes

HP 6600
macOS 10.15 Catalina

I have had the same printer for years and have moved a bunch of times and recently my printer has suddenly be locked by administrator locks. I'm not sure when it happened but I not can't even get it to connect to wifi because thats locked and I can't reset anything because those are locked as well. I can't reset network settings and doing a factory reset didn't change anything. I haven't been able to find a reliable way to do some kind of full scrub of the system since everything is locking me out.

@gdoran, Welcome to HP Support Community!

 

The only option left is to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may brick the device. 

I've sent you a private message with reset instructions, follow the reset instruction to perform a full reset and re-initialize the printer. 

 

In order to access your private messages, click the private message icon on the upper right corner of your HP Forums profile, next to your profile Name or simply click on this link.

 

Hope this helps!
