Forgot administration password and username 8260 printer

HP Officejet Pro 8620


I have forgotten my administration username and password for my HP 8620 Office Jet Pro printer. I cannot do a hard reset as it asks me for my password. Help?

Forgot administration password and username 8260 printer

Hi @ajvds


Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd be happy to assist you with the admin password issue. 


Let's try these steps to restore the network settings to defaults - 


1. From the printer control panel, touch and slide your finger across the screen, touch Setup, and then touch Network Setup. 2. Touch Restore Network Defaults, and then touch Yes. A message appears stating that the network defaults have been restored.

3. Touch OK. 


If the issue still persists, I have sent you a private message with the steps to reset the printer. Check next to your profile Name, you should see a little blue envelope, please click on it.  


Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
