Hi there,

I would start with resetting the network defaults

Also check that you have not setup an administrator by mistake.

Good luck

It sounds like someone has setup an Administrator on the printer.

 

Did you originally setup the printer or did it used to belong to someone else?

I BOUGHT THE PRINTER FROM OFFICE MAX IN 2012. THIS IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM THAT I HAVE HAD. I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO UNBLOCK THE WIRELESS ITEMS.

OK, I was just making sure.

 

Try this document  http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=c02886889&lang=en&cc=us&taskI...

 

It talks about setting up networking

 

This link is to the manual  http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&document=&product=4323659

 

You could also do a factory reset which is given in this thread

Good luck

to unlock the wireless...

turn off the printer... wait 15sec

turn on again

press back button (arrow) on display 4 times

now select the reset option, and do the partial reset, that will do the resect factory on it
