I recently changed my laptop since the old one die on me and at the sametime update to a faster router. But unfortunatly, I got stock on seting up my printer. For some how, I don't remember my admin credential.
I tried to do a factory reset but still asking for the admin credential. Is there a way to perform a factory reset without the need for the admin credential?
My pribter model is HP Officejet pro 6978.

Welcome to the HP Support Community!
I reviewed your post and I understand that you want to reset the printer as you have forgotten the admin password.
Don’t worry, I assure you I will try my best to get this sorted.
We need to perform a semi-full reset to fix this issue. However, as the steps to perform a semi-full reset are confidential and specific to your printer. I will be sending you a private message please watch your inbox for more information.
Let me know how it goes and you have a great day!
