Re: HP Officejet Pro 6830 administrator lock



Welcome to the HP Support Community!


Resetting the printer to factory defaults may resolve this issue.

  • The reset instructions are specific for your printer and performing those steps on a different printer may corrupt 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:

Let me know how this goes.
